sure, the red sox are sucking...

...But it did warm the cockles of my heart to see someone from my alma mater at bat.

School started today. I'm already exhausted, and I haven't even taught yet...

when the onion verves too close to reality for my comfort

What if this actually happened? What would happen to my research?

In a moment of synchronicity, as I found this story, "Sweet Caroline" came on my iTunes.

thoughts while watching "flavor of love 2"

Does Chuck D approve of this?...Who really wants to date Flava Flav?...If Public Enemy was part of the "Black CNN," what effed-up network is this show on? (beyond VH1, of course)...I should totally use this show in my Media Criticism class, too bad the class was cancelled because of low enrollment...Do I need to Netflix the first season?...Buckwild and Like Dat are the only two of these women that I like...Yeah, I would've gotten rid of Somethin' too. You can't get over someone shitting on your floor.

Why did I turn on the Sox game in the 7th inning? They were up 10-7, now it's 14-10 Yankees. I can't take it! Also, when did you Billy Ray Cyrus turn into Johnny Damon circa 2004? I can't deal with this shiznit. It's making me have an anxiety attack. C'mon Papi, time to be clutch...

pageant babies and character actors

No freakin' way. This brings me back to my job in Radio Hell. We were OBSESSED with this case. I am so waiting for the Law & Order or Cold Case "ripped from the headlines" treatment.

Also, RIP, Bruno Kirby. I was a huge fan of his work in such craptacular fare as The Freshman. (Shuddup, I like that movie...)

observations during breaking news

CNN has a security expert named Clark Kent Ervin. Why doesn't he just go by Clark Ervin? Apparently because his brother had a part in his naming.

I have to admit that I'm happy this did not happen when I was flying last week, since I bought a ton of Lush products in San Francisco. I would have been PISSED if I had to ditch my Cynthia Sylvia Stout, American Cream or Skin Sin. You don't fuck with a girl's natural bath products...

San Frantastic

I'm back from San Francisco. There was a ton of gladhanding and schmoozing involved. Luckily, I treated myself to some Lush products as a reward for all my hard work. I feel energized and exhausted after the conference, but overall I think it went really well. I have a few interesting things coming up, and I don't want to talk about them for fear of the jinx. Let's just say that some things just might be coming up Milhouse.
