Golden State

The house is so empty, and quiet...if it weren't so clean, I'd say it feels like when I was still a bachelor.

Being alone is sort of weird, since I've been with Anne and the boys for close to 6 years, but having an empty house does have some advantages...

  • I can blast the punk rock as loud as I want, without fear of reprisal from the Missus.

  • I can blast the Cake song "Nugget," without having to run into the room and mute it when they say "Shut the #!^& up!" because there are no kids in the house.

  • Two words: Hookers and beer.

Well, maybe not that last part. At least not the hookers part.

Seriously, the quiet has been really nice, because I've been able to completely prepare 2 of 3 auditions, and get a rough draft of my Arena script done, and still have lots of time for Tony Hawk 3.

Here's a word of warning to PS2 owners: Finding memory cards is really hard. The 16 Meg "Mega Memory" card thing is a pile of crap, and, though I absolutely love EASports, Triple Play 2002 is the worst pile of shit game I have played since ET on the Atari 2600. I'm gonna go trade it for High Heat later on today.

I'm about to get back to work, but I wanted to share this funny link from Something Awful, which will certainly offend people who have no sense of humor.

The Thought for Today is actually from an Email I read this morning. It made me laugh out loud, so I'm sharing it with the world.

Ya know the writers could have solved that whole image problem of Wesley Crusher by

A. Giving him a cool name like "Sparks Mcgee" and a peculiar accent, possibly a tattoo

B. Having him kill people randomly on the ship for no apparent reason.

C. Giving him a cool car to drive around in, like a 1978 Trans Am or one of them Dukes of Hazard cars

D. Giving him a cool catch phrase like "I got a course you can plot"

E. Wear a cowboy hat

Then like Picard would say "Number One, where the devil is Sparks Mcgee?"
Then Number one would say "In his muscle car sir", then everyone would laugh except Worf who would say some shit about honor or something. Then people at home would think, "Man that Sparks Mcgee sure is cool, a real rebel."

My response to him:

Dude! Where the $#@! were you in 1988? Your country called you, and you failed to answer. I'm re-printing this at my site, so the whole world can see how much better Star Trek could have been if you'd just answered that phone call.
