Life's Ironies

Here's one of life's ironies: all quarter long I haven't really had time to just kick back and do something that is not school-related. The irony is that now that I have a free Friday evening - I have nothing to do.

Can't even watch Star Trek: Enterprise cause it's a repeat.

UPDATE: As I was typing this, my wife called and suggested we go to a movie. So....we're going to see Christmas With the Kranks.

UPDATE NUMERO DOS: We didn't see Christmas With the Kranks after all - we grabbed a bite to eat at some neo-yuppie resturant called BJ's (spare me the jokes - I said them all) in La Jolla and instead went and rented Spider-Man 2 and Dodgeball. Both were good.

Puking Animals

How to Annoy Me

Lick up the toothpaste I accidentally spill on the floor and then throw it up, thus causing the whole house to smell like cavity-protected, minty fresh dog puke.

Heather, believe me - I feel your pain. Nothing perks my day up like when my cats eat 9-Lives and power puke in front of the television.


Can't remember where I first heard of Heather's blog Dooce, but she's got a way of writing about kids and puke like it's nobody's business.

Planning for the Future and it's all BAD

While I was preparing for final exams this week, I heard briefly about the San Diego sailor who refused to deploy with his ship.

Now that I have time on my hands (last final was yesterday morning - more about finals later), I read a little more about it.

I've heard of 'die hard' fans of metal, but this is beyond resonable:

Five Killed, Two Hurt in Ohio Concert Shooting
Singer Patrick Lachman and Guitarist Dimebag Darrel Abbott of the band Damageplan perform at the Rock Club in Pittsburgh, PA.

COLUMBUS, Ohio — The band Damageplan had just started playing Wednesday night at the Alrosa Villa nightclub outside Columbus when a gunman walked on stage and shot top heavy metal guitarist "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott five or six times at point-blank range.

The shooter then turned his weapon into the packed crowd, killing at least two fans who were at the club to see the Texas-based band, formed from the ashes of the legendary thrash-metal group Pantera (search), authorities and witnesses said.

A police officer walked on stage as the gunman held another man at gunpoint, killing the shooter before he could fire again. In all, five people lay dead and at least two others were wounded.

I've never really been much into Pantera but I knew people who absolutely loved them.

I can understand about being upset about a band breaking up, but to kill one of the people that founded the group is (pardon the pun) overkill.

I guess the reasoning behind why this guy decided to kill an awesome guitarist can only be reasonably understood by crazy people.

Rest in Peace - God will announce your next show. BTW Darrell - the Almighty digs heavy metal; if he didn't, he wouldn't have allowed it to be created.

Attention Walmart Shoppers

Preparing to get reamed tomorrow - two finals back-to-back - but I laughed my butt off at this e-mail message from my sister-in-law in Virginia:

  1. Get 24 boxes of condoms and randomly put them in people's carts when they aren't looking.

  2. Set all the alarm clocks in Housewares to go off at 5-minute intervals.

  3. Make a trail of tomato juice on the floor leading to the rest rooms.

  4. Walk up to an employee and tell him/her in an official tone, "Code 3 in housewares" and see what happens.

  5. Go the Service Desk and ask to put a bag of M & M's on layaway.

  6. Move a "CAUTION - WET FLOOR" sign to a carpeted area.

  7. Set up a tent in the camping department and tell other shoppers you'll invite them in if they'll bring pillows from the bedding department.

  8. When a clerk asks if they can help you, begin to cry and ask, "Why can't you people just leave me alone?"

  9. Look right into the security camera; use it as a mirror, and pick your nose.

  10. While handling guns in the hunting department, ask the clerk if he knows where the anti-depressants are.

  11. Dart around the store suspiciously loudly humming the "Mission Impossible" theme.

  12. In the auto department, practice your "Madonna look" using different size funnels.

  13. Hide in a clothing rack and when people browse through, say "PICK ME!"

  14. When an announcement comes over the loud speaker, assume the fetal position and scream "NO! NO! It's those voices again!!!!"

    (And last, but not least!)

  15. Go into a fitting room and shut the door and wait a while; and then yell very loudly, "There is no toilet paper in here!"
Considering the way I'm feeling right now and knowing the sheer joy I'm going to experience this Christmas shopping season, I just might try a few of these and maybe I'll create a few of my own.
