There’s a light inside my head, flickering, but almost dead

1 – First of all, that fucking moon deserved it.

Frankly, it was a ticking time bomb and you don’t screw around with diplomacy or threat level dossiers with the Moon hanging over our heads. It’s been trying to gain our flank for a millennia but you never know when disaster could strike. It could happen at any time. Obama saw a threat and fired the first shot; lets see if the Moon bothers us ever again.

Also, you right wingers that thought the President was weak? screw countries, he took on an entire heavenly body.

2 – If you’re of the faint of heart, skip to number three. But on Sunday I made the most delicious sandwich…a grilled PB&J with BACON. The smokey, the sweet….yum.

2b – Then I went to the gym :/

3 – It’s weird how one person can make the same phrase repeat in your head every time you see or think about ’em. Every time I see the current OOMA or she finds her way into my thought process, all I can think is, “She’s so fucking cute”. Just those four words. Sometimes I even have to shake my head. She’s just sooo….fucking….cute.

4 – The mom continues to impress.

There I am in 4th place, and there she is in 2nd. She’s also dominating in the percentage correctly picked. 76.32 is tops in our league of 92 people.

I shudder to think what she’d do in Vegas.

5 – Party this weekend. It’s EC’s homecoming and Wausau homies are coming over for some shenanigans. I’m offering up a quick sorry to those that are certain to receive drunk texts.

6 – I’ve been on a serious West Wing kick lately and while I love the show, it’s also a little depressing. All of these politicians are idealized versions of what we all want to see in our representatives. They’re thoughtful, intelligent and driven to make our country a better place. I can’t say that about the people we elect in the real world. Obama was nice change from the brainless hack we had in there for the last eight years, but I’m gonna need to see some results soon. Health care would be a great start.

But seriously, wouldn’t you like to see someone that can give you chills? Someone that can inspire?

Wouldn’t you like to see someone like Texas congressman Matt Santos? Check out this speech (supposed to be one of concession at the National Democratic Convention but winds up being something totally different).

Fuck.

Tell me that doesn’t give you some serious goose bumps.

7 – Now, maybe you aren’t a big sports fan. Maybe you don’t know anything about basketball.

But trust me when I say this is the most fucked up shot chart I’ve ever seen.

It was from last night’s Bucks game. They’re gonna be so god damn bad this season.

The masochist in me can’t wait to see it.

8 – So Rush Limbaugh wants to buy an NFL team and the Players Union is outraged. Even the owner of the Colts came out against it.

“I, myself, couldn’t even consider voting for him,” Irsay said at today’s NFL owners meetings. “When there are comments that have been made that are inappropriate, incendiary and insensitive… our words do damage, and it’s something we don’t need.”

I agree(d).

Now……I’m not entirely sure.

I was listening to the radio and heard a take on it that made me reconsider. It was pointed out that almost 500 NFL players have been cited for serious offenses since 2000. Drug use, gun charges, drunk driving, battery, spousal abuse…you name it. Yet all these guys get second chances and now they’re the same people that are taking the moral high ground against Limbaugh.

I don’t mind it if someone wants to voice their opinion and I’m certainly no fan of Limbaugh, but I can’t stomach hypocrisy. So the Players Union won’t support Rush’s bid, but they’ll welcome felons into their league? The owners don’t want him in their brethren but they’ll sign a defensive end that killed a woman or a cornerback that paralyzed another man via gunshot?

It’s bullshit.

9 – I hate it when someone asks me to critique a design and I can’t offer up any suggestions. Ben asked me for my thoughts on a logo he put together and all I could say was, “I like it. Great job”.

But the fact is he’s the best graphic designer I’ve ever worked with and he does phenomenal stuff.

10 – This blog is running a little long, I know. But in my family, someone who uses one word to say something when they could have used ten just isn’t trying hard enough.
