Google Ride Finder

This Google Ride Finder is pretty astounding, though I haven't given it a try...

American Idol, Eat Your Heart Out

I got together with at least five old friends from high school last night at a bar down in chinatown and had a great time. At some point I definitely ended up singing a doors song at a kareoke bar and also managed to scuff my shoe and chip off the front of the sole. It gives them character, I say.

ny - “smooth jazz”

R and I are on our way to head up to ny for my sister's high-school graduation.
The airport van showed up 15 minutes early and then the driver was angry with us for taking an extra few minutes to come downstairs. I'm livid.
For one thing, his early arrival caused me to forget my watch and phone charger.
For another thing, his early arrival caused us to rush and not get to say goodbye to the kittens.
But the worst part about all of this: he's currently forcing me to listen to “smooth jazz” at 5:30 in the morning. I'm not normally a very happy person at this hour. Guess how I feel now?
I'll go through the roof if he even mentions how long. It took us to get downstairs.
What in the hell is “smooth jazz” anyway? Is it just muted guitars, brushes on the drums and lame saxophone work? It's f-ing horrible. It worse than spyro-gyra and I list one of their concerts that I was focred/tricked into attending as one of the top 3 worst experiences of my life. I think a life worse than death for me would be one where I was forced to listen to smooth jazz while watching fox news. I shudder to think. At this point, I would prefer country (that's also saying a hell of a lot).
If read this message in the next half hour, please come rescue us from this van.

WHO and Antiviral Generic Drugs

This article brought to my attention something that I think I already knew. The US requires all drugs to pass FDA screening and doesn't accept the WHO's qualification of drugs. Sounds like standard operating procedure for the US as far as thinking that we always know best, but, as the article points out, it's expensive for us to keep it up.


Tasty, But Needs More Blog

It's been almost a week! Good God!
R and I have been exceedingly busy, so I'm going to use that as an excuse. The last time I wrote anything was the Thursday after our kickball team lost our first-round playoff game with a score of 7-0. It hurt, but their pitcher was really, really good, so we don't feel too bad.
Friday night we went out to the waterfront in Georgetown to watch drunk idiots... we didn't stay too long, but ran into a lot of people, which was good.
Saturday we went looking for a condo with a realtor and ended up bidding on two in the same building (no, we're not going to buy both, that's silly).
Saturday night we went to The Brickskeller, who have a shitty website, but an amazing beer list. I tried Rochefort 10, which is supposedly the #3 beer in the world. It was none-too-shabby. Quite dark, robust, a little too heavy on the coffee flavor with a bit of an acidic after... wait a second, I don't know anything about beer tasting. The alcohol content was 11.3%, so it has that going for it as well... it's also $12.50, so I recommend against it.
On Sunday we went up to R's parents house for Father's day.
On Monday I went to work.
Today is Tuesday and I should be on my way to work...

Assuming that most have already seen this, but, if you haven't already, it's pttery inrteitesng: rdeniag tset I think there's more to the test than just having the first and last letter of the a word in the correct spots... but haven't sat down to prove it yet.
This lite brite thing is fun... not as tangible as the original, of course.
And everyone has seen this: endoftheworld, which is amusing at best.
And snopes is always good for wasting time.
I'm downloading the Tyson fight this evening off of to see what all this nipple chomping is about.
I refuse to comment on the Jackson trial, but have yet to be asked anyway, so I just have to keep telling people that I refuse to comment. I will say that the post had an interesting article on how ridiculous the cable news networks have become, with repect to celebrity trials.

Spent some time yesterday watching episodes of The Office: Season 2.
Spent some time today working on an index page for my design site:
Spent some other time fixing the Volunteers site.
Found this photoblog
Two of my cousins were in town and came by to visit, so we all went to R's work and had dinner. Now I'm sitting around a bit bored and wondering what to do next... Hrmm..

So many titles, so little time

I stole this from my donation page for the LHH 10K ( I just can't believe how many of these they put on there. My mom pointed out that one of the options is "Bishop and Mr." I didn't know there were female bishops... or maybe it's for gay married bishops. Either way, I really should have run as an Admiral.

Here's the full list (ridiculous):
Admiral, Ambass. & Mrs., Ambassador, BGEN, Bishop, Bishop and Mr., Bishop and Mrs., Brother, c/o, Cantor, Cantor and Mr., Cantor and Mrs., Capt., Capt. and Mrs., CDR, Cdr., Chap., Chaplain & Mrs., Cmdr., CMSGT, Col., Col. and Mrs., Commissioner, CWO4, Deacon, Dr., Dr. & Rev., Dr. and Dr., Dr. and Mr., Dr. and Mrs., Dr. and Ms., Dr. and Rev., Drs., Elder, Estate of, Father, Fr., General, H.R.H., Hon., Judge, Lt., Lt. Cmdr., Lt. Col., Major, Messrs., Miss, Monsignor, Mother, Mr.' selecte, Mr. and Mrs., Mr. and Ms., Mrs., Ms., MSG., Mss., Prof., Prof. and Mr., Prof. and Mrs., Prof. and Ms., Rabbi, Rabbi and Mr., Rabbi and Mrs., Rep., Rev., Rev. and Mr., Rev. and Mrs., Rev. Dr., Rev. Dr. & Mrs., Rt. Rev., Rt. Rev. & Mr., Rt. Rev. & Mrs., Senator, Senator & Mrs., Sgt., Sister, Sr., The, The Hon., The Hon. & Mr., The Hon. & Mrs., The Rev. Deacon


Older, Wiser, Faster, Stronger

Well, I'm a year older thanks to time. I feel no different. I think I might actually be in better shape than I was a year ago and I definitely haven't aged mentally. My spelling hasn't gotten any better and my overuse of commas, really, just isn't going away.
My Mom and Sister drove down from NY to surprise me, which was really nice. Unfortunately, Mom reminded me that while I might be 25, I'm actually working on year 26. And here I was thinking that I was going to be 25 for a year, when in fact, I've just finished my twenty-fifth year. I feel like I aged two years thanks to this "revelation". Thanks a lot, Mom!
The kittens are terrorizing everything they can get their adorable little claws on this morning. The kitten Jihad only ends when they're eating or sleeping. Otherwise it's like Hezbollah and Al Qaeda joined forces, turned themselves into kittens and decided to eat houseplants and chew on network cables. As you can see in the picture on the right, they weren't so active when mom and sis were visiting. It looks like we had grey stuffed in the first picture, but I swear, we didn't... much.
This news about Citigroup losing customers' personal data is especially disturbing, since R had her debit card used fraudulently yesterday. Some idiot used her debit card to pay their electric bill in Baltimore. We had the DC police over here to write up a report so she can get her money back from Citibank, but seriously, how dumb do you have to be to pay your utilities with a stolen debit card? She called B-more Gas and Electric and they had the person's address in two seconds... too bad they weren't allowed to give it to us or we would have... umm... written them mean-spirited letters. Yeah! The officer who came over was really nice and we had a nice nerdy chat about BlackBerries and Treos and how his Treo is a lemon.
The Supreme Court ruling yesterday on the federal government being allowed to prosecute medical marijuana users sounds like the biggest waste of time I've ever heard of. Are these people hurting anyone? Then again, I think the court had to rule that way so that it wouldn't mess up other laws dictating the control of other drugs (illegal or no). I could maybe see prosecuting those who are fraudulently claiming to be using pot for medical purposes... and even then, who really cares? I don't want to get into a whole war-on-drugs/waste-of-time thing, but seriously, potheads aren't hocking their possessions for drugs or robbing liquor stores. The dealers that run around in gangs, on the other hand, might be involved in more illegal stuff than even the prescription-drug dealers... though, that's hard to imagine.
Late for work. Off I go.

I'm a huge nerd, but it's ok. I was reading this article about Verizon possibly switching to the wireless techonlogy that everyone in Europe is using, GSM, and then realized that it was from 2001 and Verizon still hasn't figured it out. All this came up because I wanted to get a Treo, but didn't want to have to switch to T-mobile. Then I was informed that Verizon's phones with email run on a different network and don't have SIM cards, so one couldn't use the phone overseas... they need to catch up. People have clearly been talking about it for a while.

Lawyers Have a Heart

Hi There,

This year I'll once again be participating in the Lawyers Have a Heart 10K to see if I can run faster than people who went to law school (they're actually quite quick).
Click on the link below and you will be taken to my personal donation page where you can make a donation... or don't click and feel guilty for a few minutes. The American Heart Association's online fund raising Web site has a minimum donation amount of $25.00 (they're not cheap!).  If you prefer to donate less, you can do so by sending a check directly to me. I will spend this money on beer and pretzels... I mean... power bars.
Your donation will help fight our nation's No. 1 and No. 3 killers — heart disease and stroke. Unfortunately, it will only help defend the No. 2 killer: lawyers. You are making a difference.  Thank you for your support.

ps- A quick apology to all of the lawyers to whom I sent this request for funds (you're not really the No. 2 killer... closer to #5). Please reread the email and replace the word "lawyers" with "doctors" where appropriate.
