Reindeer Games

I saw Reindeer Games this afternoon. Fairly entertaining, though it won't go down on my all time favorites list. 2 1/2 stars. Read my review.

I went to Atlanta last weekend for a dinner party my sister-in-law had. Yeah, I know, it's a long way to go for a dinner party, but...well, that's not the point of this. Four years ago, before the Olympics, my friend Ben graduated from George Mason. Since he was coming down to visit Georgia for the Olympics, I thought it would be cool to buy him a brick in Centennial Olympic Park.

The only problem was, the bozos running the operation didn't get all the bricks laid in time for the Olympics, or the other few visits Ben made to Georgia before I moved up to Maryland. So while Marlee was visiting CNN, I went to Centennial Park, and, well, anyway, Ben, here you go...


Freaks and Geeks

I found this photo essay entitled "Convention Freaks" in a random comment on Slashdot. I know I shouldn't enjoy making fun of people, but...well, this is a good way to do it.

From a Boob to a Dweeb

Bush was on Letterman last night, and sadly I missed it. CBS has an article on it, though. It sounds like he came across like a dolt who has no idea of what's appropriate. I don't know what's scarier -- the idea that he wrote these jokes himself, or that he had someone else write them.

Don't touch the back...

The Washington Post has a neat article today called Mullet: A Do That Still Does about everybody's favorite hairstyle.
"[W]hat did Adam Sandler wear in "The Wedding Singer" when he wanted to suggest an '80s common man stuck in a dead-end job with a fading machismo? A mullet, of course, with a pompadourish froth of curls on top."
