i heart bud light's "men of genius" radio commercials. they amuse me greatly. i heard the "nudist colony activities coordinator" one on the way back from lunch today. brilliant. i wonder if there is an on-line archive of them that you can download. . .

monkey law. on-line comic.


so, i was reading this article about the difficulties of buying a bridal gown, which lead me to poke around at bridesave.com, where i came across their tips page, where they make note of leaving your ring at home, which brings me to my little ring rant. where did this "rule" of bigger = better come from? bigger just means that the guy is further in debt. i remember reading somewhere that the guy should pay about 2 months' salary on the ring. what the hell?!? there are so many other things i'd rather spend that sort of money on. you know, like a house. just give me something beautiful and tasteful that i don't have to worry about constantly getting caught in my hair or on my clothes, since i actually tend to move around over the course of a day, and i'll be a happy girl.



now that the play is over, maybe i can get some sleep. aaaaah sleep.

speaking of baseball. . . let's chat for a moment about the tedwilliamssicle issue. first of all, it says right in his will to creamate him. and that's going to be ignored so that someone can freeze him for future cloning?!? even if we ignore the can it even work issue, this is ridiculous. let the man be a legend. don't demean that by making more of him in the future. and respect his damn wishes!
