Dude! Supergrass is awesome! Saw them at the 930 club and they put on a great show. The bassist is amazing and they're a very unnotugly group of dudes.

We caught a mouse this morning. It was in the trap that he had eaten the spinach out of the day before. Maybe this means that mice like spinach residue just as much as actual spinach.
Everyone must read this article and later should check out Bush singing.

Last weekend, R and I borrowed some mouse traps from her parents to help us with the "mouse problem". It seems that everytime we come home there's another little fun rodent running around the house. R said to bait the traps with peanut butter. After two days, not much. Then, last night, while making a salad, R dropped a piece of spinach on the floor which happened to bounce and stick the peanut butter in one of the traps.
Tonight, upon arriving home, what should we find but no more peanut butter and no more spinach in the trap. no mouse either, but this proves what some of us have been saying since the dawn of time: "mice really like spinach."

Did you forget about Janet Jackson's Super Bowl boob incident? I did too, and then today the FCC fined CBS $550,000 for it, which, oddly, is only $50,000 less than the amount that Halle Berry was paid to do double the work when she bore herself in swordfish.
What does this teach us all? It teaches us that some breasts are worth paying half a million dollars to bare and others are worth paying the same amount to keep covered. Is this chest discrimination? You bet it is.

Another evening at the office... spent waiting for someone to get out of a meeting so they can tell me why I'm here this late.
In the meantime, I've been being a big hippie and checking out fair-trade coffees and all the fairness they have to offer. Sound granola? It is!
oH WAIT, now I'm working and it's almost 9pm and R bought a rotisserie chicken that I won't see until I get home! Dang!

If you've got cable, check out the fox blocker, which you can put in the back of your cable box to block out fox news channel forever (not the regular fox channel with the simpsons, the fox news cable channel). And if you're thinking, "why would I want to block fox news channel?", check out outfoxed from your local video store, library or whatnot.

Looks like Autumn has officially started here in DC. Thursday it was 83 degrees. Today the high will be 72. Everybody buy your ZiCam and start spraying before you catch a cold.

Lost our kickball game. The score was pathetic. What really made it worthwhile was being able to arrive on a scooter. Yee haw. Snow Patrol at 930 club tomorrow night. Muy bueno.
And GOOD GOD, the latest thing to come out of W's mouth: "Too many OB-GYNs aren't able to practice their love with women all across this country"

The Scissor Sisters put on a really great show. I highly recommend going to see them if you have the chance. It turned out that this show was the first one of their US tour. I felt good to know that I was there to see it kick off...

All in all a pretty good weekend. We rode the scooter down to the hirshhorn to check out the Gabriel Orozco on its last day. I can't say that it was particularly good. It was a photography exhibit that I cut out an article about sometime over the summer and finally got around to seeing today.
I also found out about this thing called Ghostzilla, which helps to hide the mozilla browzer within whatever application you happen to be working. I also downloaded the firefox web browser to see if it was just as good as Internet Explorer or possibly better. I seems to be doing just fine and even imported all of my old settings from IE. Not bad!
Back to work tomorrow............ lame. lame. lame.

Scooter! Whoo-hoo! R and I went out to the ghetto in DC and bought a scooter yesterday. It was the last one within 30 miles of DC, since all of the '05 models are coming out so soon... Here's exactly what it looks like:
Took it up to R's parents today and drove it around Georgetown yesterday. Loads of fun.

I had a random thought the other day:
Why is it that you can spend your entire life cutting the fingernails of your right hand using the scissors with your left hand and never get good at it? It makes no sense. Unless of course you're left handed, in which case reverse it. If you're ambidextrous, I'd like to know if it's just really difficult to cut your nails at all or really simple. And lastly, do you ever find yourself switching hands before cutting your right toenails?
You'd think I would have thought of this while clipping my nails. Oddly, no.
