On My Icy Half Birthday

News and thoughts for today:

-Good new and bad news for fans of The Office. Good news is there will be six new episodes this season. Bad news is we have to wait another month and a half until they air on April 10. It's well worth the wait, though.

Other return dates of interest to myself:

CSI:Miami- March 24
Law & Order: SVU- April 15
Criminal Minds- April 2
Without A Trace- April 3

-Today's weather forcast is Lexington, KY: ICE STORM WARNING. Or, as Bill Meck likes to call it, FROZEN DEATH RAINING FROM THE SKY WARNING. So, looking back at the past month we have experienced in the Bluegrass area:

1) severe thunderstorms
2) tornadoes
3) temperatures above 70 degrees
4) 3 inches of snow
5) 1/4 inch of ice


-A funny explanation of politics.

-Also cool is how the US military shot a satellite out of the sky on the first try.

-Did anyone watch the UK-Georgia game the other night? Did anyone hear how the commentators talked about the upcoming game between Memphis and Tennessee THE ENTIRE NIGHT? If you were watching you might have heard somehting like "Patterson grabs the rebound and lays it up for an easy two points. Speaking of lay-ups, how about that game between Memphis and Tennessee this weekend? That oughta be a doozy huh? Let's break out the analysis chart and break down that game right now."

I mean I know they are ranked 1 and 2 respectively, but when I tune in to watch a UK game, I want to hear them talk about THAT game, especially when it is close. It's not like one team was up by 25 points. One of the commentators actually broke out the Memphis-Tennessee comparison chart during the game; they didn't even do that for the game at hand. No surprise that this rediculous amount of over-promotion occurred on ESPN, the same network that has brought us "Super Tuesday", "ACC Wednesday", "Throwdown Thrursday", "Rivalry Week", "Championship Week", and of course, my personal favorite, "Judgement Week".

-Today is my half birthday. I am 23 1/2 today. Be sure to send me a gift.

WES - I'm glad that you've kept the blog alive. (unlike some who have totally abandoned their blogs, you still keep it alive) However, your blog is basically in a coma state right now.

(shoot up a post and shock the world
