Spooky Scary!

Oh boy.

I suppose I haven't mentioned how much I love 30 Rock. Such a funny, mean-spirited show.

At any rate, this seems like as good a place as any to post this clip.

Last week's crappiness was apparently not enough.

Fuck you, Marlins. Oh, and thanks a lot for having me believe in you, Mets. I really like being disappointed year after year.

The pain eventually subsides.

But I should probably ache for a while.

It's been a long time since I've been alone.

Theme of the months

Listening to: Steely Dan - Josie

Today's theme? Tomorrow's theme? Theme for the next couple months?



I hate the government anyway, I distrust 99% of politicians, and the sniping back and forth is boring.




So how 'bout those Mets? Specifically, how 'bout that Carlos Delgado? All hitting homers, playing good defensive ball... MVP! MVP!

I heart baseball. It doesn't piss me off as much.

Listening to: Delicious power

Yesterday, we had some Hanna-related issues. That is to say, my building and others within a few-block radius were dealt a blackout yesterday for 5 or so hours. Which sucked. It was uncomfortably hot and jungly, so my apartment became hot and jungly. Eventually, due to not being able to read in the encroaching darkness, and due to it being about 85 degrees in my apartment (the qats didn't mind), I went to the lobby, to find out the situation. A bunch of other people in the building got the same idea.

I also noticed a few of them slinking off to the gym, where a lot of cool A/C air had been captured, not unlike in a fridge. Slinking off with a bottle of Grey Goose and some mixers. I formulated a plan. I drove to the beer distributor on Fairmount, which was fortuitously open and not powerless, and bought a case of Natty Boh (SO happy to find it here. It kicks Yuengling's ass); after getting an improvised dinner at Wawa (side note: the mashed potatoes are awesome), I hauled the case into the building, and invited the folks in the gym to help me drain it. Because I was so bored, I knocked back 4 cans in about 1.5 hours, faster than I should've been drinking.

I was sloshed, needless to say, when the power came back on and I felt like going back upstairs.

Still, not a bad way to spend a blackout - making friends, and drinking beer.

Oh! some pictures.

First, a couple stragglers from Hawaii.

This is a gorgeous tree related to a Protea, which is kind of a ubiquitous flower-tree in Hawaii. This one, I think, is an Australian variety. Spotted at the Kula Botanical Garden, not far from Haleakala Crater.

Next, we have the incredibly rare Hawaiian Nene Goose. Only about 300 are known to exist. This critter, too, was at the botanical garden.

Finally, in non-Hawaiian related awesomeness, I picked up a SICK pair of Adidas Superskates on Friday. Soooo cool.

Listening to: Fleetwood Mac - The Chain

The Democrats are the party of government activism, the party that says government can make you richer, smarter, taller, and get the chickweed out of your lawn. Republicans are the party that says government doesn't work, and then get elected and prove it. - PJ O'Rourke

Nice speech McCain. Wait. Was there a speech? I couldn't hear anything over U-S-A! U-S-A! I'm qualified because I've been tortured! BLAH BLAH 9-11!

Oy gott. It will be difficult to get me in that booth this year.
