okay last little blip for a while-i really gotta get some more work done today.

one of the best parts about my new job: my work space (not really a cube, not really an office) has one whole wall that is entriely made up of windows so i get lots of natural light, and get to see EXACTLY what's going on with the weather.

one of the worst parts about my new job: when i'm having trouble focusing on work (almost never happens. really.), i get distracted by activities outside said window because people who bring their dogs to work take them out to play on the grass outside, dartmouth medical student play football between classes, etc.

okay mr cranky pants. bud selig is now thinking about putting an age limit of FIFTEEN years on bat boys. come on! i haven't heard of any other incidents like little darren baker was in during game 6, but i think those little guys are very entertaining. and hasn't baseball lost enough fan support this year with the strike threat that loomed practically all season? come on, leave us a little fun...

is this really necessary?

this is too funny: name that beard

po' darren baker. we heard that he was just SOBBING when the giants lost on sunday night. on the other hand, apparently dusty baker has been getting lots of offers to appear on late night talk shows...but only if he brings darren. :-)

in the words of sadu: GO GIGANTES! it looks like it very well could be a nail-biting seven game series! Too bad they will have to take the title on enemy turf, but sometimes, that's the way it goes.

i could include a link to this site every day of the week. but why don't you just save me the trouble and read it regularly for yourself? it's very entertaining. the management thanks you.

remember the link to the harry potter nimbus brrom on amazon and all the customer reviews pertaining to teenaged girls using up batteries for their little siblings' brooms? well the story made the AP and they say amazon deleted all the reviews-there are still a few there, just not the ones everybody else found so amusing...

this story from the NY times explains more about the dusty baker situation than any other i've read. i mean it's one thing if he decides it's time to retire, but should he decide not to reitre, peter magowan suffers from cranial rectal inversion (to put it nicely) if he doesn't hire dusty back. (i think that sentence might have a few things wrong with it tense-wise, but i've spent too much time trying to re-word it so there you go. live with it)

is this an even trade? you be the judge.

random thought-anyone have the latest album by pink? yes, i know it's very teenaged girl of me to be considering buying it, but she's intriguing in her tough rocker chickness, and i like the couple of songs i've heard from it. i think she's got an incedibly strong voice with attitude to boot.

yippee! just the thing if you're having a crappy day-a new wallace and gromit short! AND you can download it....

what i wanna know is does he get paid for this testing?

coming soon to a shopping mall near you: mormon fashion shows at nordstrom

just played on kfog: 'there she goes' NOT the sixpence none the richer version...the orginal version by The La's. and yes, i do own the CD, thank you very much for asking. i may have to go home and play it a couple of times in a row at high volumes on good speakers. listening to it on a pc speaker (yes, that's singular) via the internet is okay, but...well, you know.
did you know that this song was used in so i married an axe murderer? pretty entertaining movie. if you'd like to rent it this weekend, be my guest

how about four runs on 2 outs in the top of the second with NONE of those runs being scored by a home run? yeah, baby! okay, and there was a high and tight pitch that cleared the benches, but i think emotions were high so i'm almost willing to forgive you all for acting like children. come on tony and dusty-didn't you say you were friends?

okay, one more link: priceless

two links that i received this morning when i arrived at work:
via willtut: a very enterprising vermont burgler
via sadu crabinhoben: engrish (i know it's not very PC (as they say) but, come on, it's funny!)
okay, let me go get some coffee and get a little work done...more later!

too funny: the smoking gun has celebrity mugshots. if you haven't seen it in the paper recently, you HAVE to, at the very least, check out nick nolte's mugshot. YIKES

go giants, go giants, go go go giants. YEE HA!
although we didn't stay up late enought to watch the whole game (it started at 8:45 out here for christ's sake!), we watched the first four innings and then went to sleep while trying to send good karma to atlanta-and it worked! of course, now we'll be watching at least 3 more games and staying up late to do it...but it's worth it!

from willtut-after discussing the viking kittens-punk rock kittens! complete with mosh pit...

my current state of residence is #2, my former, number 29. i feel smarter already.

via sarah b: you a cat person? you like the rock and roll music? you into vikings? then i think you might enjoy this.

according to this story, this is the funniest joke in the world:
Two hunters are out in the woods when one of them collapses. He doesn't seem to be breathing and his eyes are glazed. The other man pulls out his phone and calls emergency services.

He gasps to the operator: "My friend is dead! What can I do?" The operator in a calm, soothing voice replies: "Take it easy. I can help. First, let's make sure he's dead."

There is a silence, then a shot is heard.

Back on the phone, the hunter says, "OK, now what?"

this is not a good thing, just ask martha... anyway, i hope her magazine doesn't go under. despite the fact that she can be annoying, i do like the magazine.

anybody tried book crossing yet? or found one of their books and read it? i read an article about it in the valley news (our local 3-section daily paper) about a month ago and i was intrigued. i haven't managed to do anything yet (yes, like everything else in my life lately), but now that the dartmouth is back in session, i may have to get involved and leave a few books out. i figure with the students around, books are more likely to be passed around. keep tuned to this station for updates.
