For anyone wanting to know what place I came in in Iron Man, well, I overslept. I was up until 1:30 carb loading crapulously with barley and hops and I guess I missed the start by like six hours!
OK, then there is Cayenne West. I think he is running for politics in South Carolina? What a freaking A-Hole.
Here is Taylor Swift winning an award at the VMA (Vienna Academy of Postgraduate Medical Education & Research Conference and Association Management Awards ?) for best female video.
Ummmmmmm. Not cool at all.
OK - Beyonce was way way cool and gave Taylor a second chance. HOWEVER - WHAT is up with that woman behind Beyonce. No seriously, she/he/it is shown a few times and it scares me a little, I might have nightmares now.
And speaking of outbursts! Serena! Serena! Serena! OOOPS!!
Sort of what happened last night on a certain illegal contact penalty in last nights Packer game. Sort of a boring game wasn't it.
It's funny. Around the office when the Packers win we all talk about all the little moments and laugh at the Bears (brilliant fake punt play LOL) and brag about the defense (that goal line stand stopping the Bears to a field goal was sweet).
But when the Packers lose . . . . . it's like they did not even play! No one even mentions the Packers.
Bear fans have to be feeling good this morning. OH - I see now that Brian Urlacher out 4-6 Weeks. That's unfortunate.
Pack play Cincinnati who lost to Denver 12-7 and then St. Louis who were shut out by Seattle 28-0 and then MINNESOTA. Minnesota plays Detroit who's last win was December 2007 and are on a nice 1 win in the last 25 games run.
Now, sigh! The Brewers have won three straight and are ramping up their playoff run. We're only 12 games out of the Wild Card hunt with 6 teams to beat out! GAME ON BABY!
hmmmmmm what else - I tried my 1 week old Grandmas Breakfast Stout and it was outstanding . . if you like coffee/chocolate flavored beer (which I do). Now I wait to see if I have finally beaten my bottle side infection problem. I'm getting a little depressed as I track down the nagging little problem.
Brewing continues though as a new One Putt Twelve was brewed yesterday and this morning it has a beautiful creamy white krausen as it bubbles away in the carboy.
OH - funny story - Friday was 911 right? Lots of ceremonies. Well, the 4 of use decide to go for coffee and we exit the door of our building right in the middle of a lowering the flag to half mast ceremony. On our immediate left is a flag being lowered and on our right are 20 National Guard dudes and directly in front of us are 20 State troopers . . . . . . all staring at us! WTF!!
Hey - we didn't know! I'm sure we looked like four cockroaches caught in the open with the lights just coming on. I'm just happy we lived - they all had guns!
I see this morning that 35 more business cards were taken from Starbucks this weekend. I gotta sell them for $1. I would have made $80 already. This showing is really costing me money! But I have another REAL art studio in Madison interested in my work so . . . . . .
and finally - my Monday Udey dam rant. I don't understand (no really, I'm telling you I don't understand). If the City Council has voted . . twice? 6-0 that we will fix Udey Dam, why do we need a survey to see if we should fix the Dam? What is the problem? Why not get it fixed (so we can fish in the toxic pond it will create).
So it seems the survey that SOME people will get will also have questions on if we should lengthen term limits to 4 years for council members and if the Mayor should have a vote. Also questions on spending projects (like the Columbus Dome, the Columbus Space Port, and the Udey Dam Sky Walk I believe). Tyler Walker said "It's a well written survey" (meaning I did not write it).
I see Fall River is fixing their dam also. hmmmmm At least once we spend so much to fix the dam we can look forward to FIXING the dam AGAIN in the future! Yea - makes sense to fix a meaningless chunk of 100 year old cement that will create a toxic fishing hole and makes the river non-navigational. Columbus would have never discovered Columbus if that dam would have been there, you can not portage the Niña, the Pinta, and the Santa Maria over a dam.
CONGRATS to the Columbus Cardinals - I believe you guys could beat the Detroit Lions at this point.
Have a great Monday!
