Is It Vacation Yet?!

look! i proved to myself that i can actually type a sentence with upper-case letters in it. i've been abstaining due to a little fight me and Mr. Creationist-Upper-Case-Letters had about my main man Darwin.... so it's good to be back on speaking terms.

i have discovered a noble truth since my last post. the key to success is all about one's comfort zone. DON'T HAVE A COMFORT ZONE! in my case it seems that the more out of my comfort zone i am, the more luck i seem to have. if you keep to the "tried and true" you're going to get bored... and worse than that is if something changes, you'll be all out of whack. so screw the notion of comfort. do you think Rosa Parks was comfortable in her seat up in the front of that bus? i bet you a ba-zillion $$ she wasn't and that's made all the difference. or Mary having a kid out of wedlock and traveling on the back of a donkey... please.

so that's my life-lesson i've picked up on. talk amongst yourselves.

And now for my other rule, the rule of three:

1. Book:

2. Music:

3. This Movie Rocks!

Penguins are bizzare, but the title looks really cool in French.

Take Me Out

This past weekend we went to Take Me Out (reviewed by


Here's one of the many, many wonderful parts of the play:

"'I have come (with no little excitement) to understand that baseball is a perfect metaphor for hope in a democratic society,' says Mason at one point. Everyone is given an equal chance at success on the diamond, and -- unlike football, basketball and other sports that employ a clock -- an unlimited amount of time to achieve it. But the outcome is never, ever certain, the game itself possessing none of the naivete of either its players or its fans.

Or as Mason puts it, 'Baseball is better than democracy -- or at least than democracy as it's practiced in this country -- because, unlike democracy, baseball acknowledges loss....

'Democracy is lovely, but baseball's more mature.'"

too true, too true.

any thoughts on this? i think it's crap when liberals and conservatives or dems and repubs, donkeys and elephants, and such like battle and one gets their rumps... uhh... pumped(?) and then says "as you can see, the victory here today really shows that..." no other "sport" aside from politics does that. if a coach who's team got TROUNCED came off the field/court/mat/ring/stripper pole and said something like that.. the other team would kill him... the next beating would be even worse... dear Mr. Political Cream-Cheese: ACKNOWLEDGE that you have LOST. it makes you more in touch with reality as normal people see it.

like John Kerry KILLED Bush in the debates. I mean DAMN! Kerry even went back and tried to screw it up two more times, and STILL destroyed Mr. Angry-W.-Eyes. and bush is all like "as you see, i'm going to be re-elected cause i won these debates." No, you (you being understood as Bush) won re-election cause 1. you have ppl too scared to think for themselves and 2. people felt sorry for how Kerry minced, diced, sprinkled with mint and served your own ass to you. and your advisor sucks and i hope that evil, evil mudracker gets CANNED and leads to your impeachment.

that's all... class dismissed.

I'll take my one stab now please

Everyone and their mama (even my ma) has made fun of Michael Jackson, except me. So I'll use this slightly amusing dc101 flash movie to do it.

I mean if everyone jumped off a bridge, I'd have to. Everyone's doing it.... you're not cool if you don't... i just wanna be liked, is that so wrong? you haven't lived unless you try it.

which leads me to my next segment: if you have any "D.A.R.E." phrases that the druggies were supposed (but they never did with me, am i an outcast?) to use to get you to "be a user, and users are losers", then please post them in the comments section located here > no... wait... < not there ^ dammit! where's the down arrow?! there's the other three directions but NO DOWN?! what the hell is wrong with technology?!

Cory the Wonderdog

Kate found this on the internet after watching "Dock Dogs" on ESPN2 last weekend. And I quote "This dog is friggin' AWESOME and hyper!! He's the 2003 Flying Disc Open Division World Champion."


We need a puppy in the worst way.

Fallen Idol

I love when guys who think they're too cool for school try to prove it and just fall on their ass. I didn't much care for Constantine on American Idol so i was overjoyed when i found this! I dunno what's better, Mr. CoolPants biting the dust or the goofy news lady panic'n and trying to cover up.

on a side note, how awesome was Family Guy? From a nod to THE INHUMANOIDS with Gleep trying to get a babysitting job to when all the guys were hoarf'n all over the place... oh man! guy.ever.

Like every year, we went down to the Mall for A Capitol Fourth and watched some 'plosions. We heard the Beach Boys, Gloria Estefan and the O'Jays! Karen, Nick, Katie, Brian, Jay and Kathy were all there sweat'n to the oldies with us. Some random trivia, the 4th is Kate's favorite holiday!

Also some random trivia; we don't celebrate the signing of the Declaration of independence, we celebrate its ratification.
