Motorhead Rob sent me this one. Wait until his little girl is big enough to do this. He keeps sending me these thing and I keep posting them. It’s not my fault.

The wife and I have gone to 2 movies during the last week,Â I believe that has to be my record for most movie theater visits during a weeks time.
The first was The Bridge to Terabithia, a fine film but the advertising is completely off the mark. Based on the 30 second film bits they call Ads you’d think the movie is a cross between LOTR and Narnia. The CGI graphics account for about 1 percent of the film. The littlest was slightly disappointed by this but she still enjoyed it considering she wants us to take her too it again. I thought the film was real good and the last half hour you’d better have your hanky accessible.
The next was a film we rented, The Departed. An excellent film even though it had Matt Damon in it. I can’t get Team America visions out of my head whenever I see him in a flick. You know the part where whenever they show MD, he just mumbles Maaaat Damon .That issue aside, the film kept my attention and on the edge of my seat. Jack Nicholson was awesome and even Leanardo DiCaprio did not disappoint.
The third film was The Number 23. Ugh, such a good premise but oh so boring. Jim Carrey was Ok but something was wrong. The pacing of the film was set up to create that ending where you supposed to think, did he do it, if not, who did?Â But it failed IMHO. The night wasn’t a complete loss however, thanks to Motorhead Rob and his lovely wife for hanging out with us. We don’t get out to much anymore.
still can’t win when it comes to their beloved Tour De France. It appears they can’t even do a drug test properly.
The newspaper reported Tuesday that the French laboratory which found the positive results against Landis had two technicians, involved in the original urinalysis and the confirming test, validating their own findings.
Such access to both samples violates anti-doping regulations and supports Landis’s contention that numerous errors in the chain of care regarding the tests and samples should invalidate the doping positive.
Like they say, read the whole thing.

Look Closely…oh….so….very closely. Do you see it?

My friend Motorhead Rob sent this to me awhile ago and I forgot to post it.
The following is the winning entry from an annual
contest calling for the most appropriate definition
of a contemporary term. This year’s term:
“Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
delusional, illogical, liberal minority, and rabidly
promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”Â
Here are (allegedly) some of the finalists from a magazine’s contest to come up with the funniest or most asinine real-life memos/quotes from the business world
“As of tomorrow, employees will only be able to access the building using individual security cards. Pictures will be taken next Wednesday, and employees will receive their cards in two weeks.” (This was the winning entry, from an employee at Microsoft Corporation in Redmond, WA) Wee! Two weeks off!
“What I need is a list of specific unknown problems we will encounter.” (Lykes Lines Shipping)
“E-mail is not to be used to pass on information or data. It should be used only for company business.” (Accounting Mgr., Electric Boat Company)
“This project is so important, we can’t let things that are more important interfere with it.” (Advertising/Mktg. Mgr., UPS)
“Doing it right is no excuse for not meeting the schedule.” (R&D Supervisor, Minnesota Mining & Manufacturing/3M Corp.)
“Teamwork is a lot of people doing what I say.” (Quote from a marketing executive, Citrix Corporation)
“We know that communication is a problem, but the company is not going to discuss it with the employees.” (AT&T Long Lines Division)
“No one will believe you solved this problem in one day! We’ve been working on it for months. Now, go act busy for a few weeks and I’ll let you know when it’s time to tell them.” (R&D Supervisor, Minnesota Mining & Manufacturing/3M Corp.)

Happy Valentine’s day to the lovely wife. I love you!
Tomorrow kicks off the beginning of cycling season in my neck of the woods. The Worst Day of the Year Ride is a community fun ride around the Portland area. This will be the second year I’ve ridden this event and it should be fun. My riding buds, Chris and Van, will be there along with a slew of other riders dressed as weird as Portlandlander can be. I’m going to bring my camera so you all can see how weird they are. I’ll update with pics and a post tomorrow.
A little live blogging AI, Paula’s hammered.
Depending how kaotic it gets around here over the next several hours, I will try to do some simul-blogging of the game and what’s going on around here. We’re having a few people over to watch the game on the Plasma so it should be interesting. My feeling is that the game will be pretty good, great offense vs. great defense. My worst fear is the Bears will win by scoring 10 points on offense, Grossman will have a passing rating of negative 2 but the defense will intercept a pass for a TD and Hester will run either a punt or kickoff back for a TD. Basically a repeat performance the Ravens did a few years back and you all remember what a boring game that was.
11:49 am – Cracked first beer.
1:42 pm – Ok we get it, they’re black. I always thought i was content of character not color of your skin that mattered.
Half time – So far so good. It seems to be shaping up to be a good game. One of my predictions already happened, Hester runs the initial kickoff back for a touch. A couple of the commercials have been pretty good but overall it’s been average.
6:41 – Sorry I’ve been distracted watching the game but one thing I noticed is Peyton Manning’s ability to elude defenders. I was fortunate to be able to scour the intertubes for a little video of his astounding juke abilities. Here it is.
Look real close.
for it to happen. I’m already numero uno for H*ntai a$$ 5ex on MSN live search. Must have been that goat chaser from Riyadh visiting the site. The freak stayed for almost four minutes, just long enough to….. you get the picture.

Looks like I maxed out my inbox limit of 250 mb’s. It seems there is a disconnect between Thunderbird and Comcast mail. When I viewed my email thru comcast.net not one of my emails has been deleted since I started using TB 2 years ago. So now I have a shiite load of manual deletions. Hey Ubergeek, you heard of that before?
