apparently, someone hacked the yankees official site after they won last
night, and put a nasty picture on it. nasty in a yankees suck kind of way.

along this article a while back: do you
leave your mobile phone on during sex? my response was pretty much the

possibility that the phone rings during sex? or, just as things get really

back in september, heather sent along a story about geek
chic: wearable computers. but the story had no pictures. she did some
digging, and came up with a photo of the LightGlove. of course,
you can't really see the mouse, but the rest of the outfit kicks ass. you
can view other stuff designed by charmed
technologies as part of their brave new unwired world. but you'll
need a fast connection.
so i am supposed to get my car today. and there is this big
insurance crapola that i have to sort that out. so the wonderful michelle comes and takes me
to the dealer so i can sort out the insurance crap. and while there, i find
out that my car has a defect in the paint on the top. so they want to find
me a new car. could this whole process be any more difficult? luckily, my
sales rep convinces them to give me a loaner car until they find me the new
one. at least that part has turned out ok. . .

re: the b5 thing. apparently they were originally filmed in
widescreen but never shown that way. all cgi was developed for the tv. so
now they are re-doing a lot of the cgi fo the widescreen format. i see.
now it's cool.
ok. someone please splain to me this widescreen b5 on sci fi thing.
were the episodes originally filmed in widescreen? or have they just
stretched them out to be widescreen? cause if it's the latter, thats just
dumb. why bother? it's not like you're suddenly going to see stuff that got
cropped out of the picture before. . . i don't get it.

invoice. what do i do??
having proxy server issues today. . .
loony.org's week in review has a
great comment on the bush/cheney ticket. it's like the 9th picture in.
there's a good one about the state of politics in general. and a gore one,
i was hoping that this article was actually
going to have some useful information about what presidents do. but it
didn't really. just more analysis of bush vs. gore and foreign policy.
so, i am car shopping. i am currently planning on getting a honda civic
ex. one dealer is offering the 2001 model for $1000 over invoice, which
is $700 less than MSRP, and they don't haggle. another dealer i went to
haggles, but it took me 2 hours to get a price out of them and it was over
the msrp, so i left. good, bad, what? the only other car i've ever bought
was a saturn, so there is no
haggling. thoughts, suggestions are welcome.

greg knauss once again kicks
make the best parents. "Studies worldwide reveal that today's homosexual
totally kicks straight butt when it comes to roosting and rearing -- in
categories of competency and nurturing." "For us to become parents we really
have to want kids because we have to find sperm, sign contracts and then
justify our decisions 20 times to everyone we meet. It's never like,
'Whoops, we got sloppy with the turkey baster last night.' There is no such
thing as an accidental child of a lesbian couple. If all children were as
wanted as the children of lesbians, we'd live in a pretty fucking amazing
world." boo. yea. it's long, but worth the read. very interesting.
