thats better

billy, can't you do something about the spammers on teh internets? maybe send some sort of worm of your own out that makes people's computers do random acts of kindness to everyone instead of infecting normal computers with some sort of zombie virus? i think that would be lovely. there would be hackers, crackers and RACers.

and post something. please.

"OMG-it's-been-two-months-since-a-post"

ya, we're there again. tell me something interesting about your life or possibly cbrodt's life since he's moving to jacksonville fla. (or something like that). you have fans billy, and they are waiting.

also, went to see ijiv last night and yukiko and i give it a 7 out of a possible 10. 10 being blown away and completely overachieving our expectations, 1 being a complete disappointment, e^i(pi) + 1 being "death bed: the bed that eats people", and -10 being "ernest goes to africa". so, not bad overall, but we both preferred the other indy's.

also, our experience at the warren theater was very very bad. really expensive, the service is slow, and they get the food wrong. if you really want to go see a movie in the balcony (great view but everything else sucked), definitely eat before you go and tell them you don't want to be disturbed during the movie.

I thought that was me for a second but then I remembered I rarely use my given name online. Whew. (I've enjoyed the Library a bit too much lately and then come right home and check my RSS feeds. I've already left at least one odd comment that I'd forgotten about by morning.)

time to break down the red/white game,

red (1st team offense and 2nd team defense) won by a landslide. white (2nd team offense and 1st team defense) was definitely let down by the fact that the 2nd team offense laid an egg and no qbs
had a scoring drive except for bradford. so, 1st team offense is the best unit we have followed by our 1st team defense then close beind them is the 2nd team defense and way in the back of the bus is the 2nd team offense, which spells out a few things to me. we have overall very good to great defense (5 to 6 picks on the day and several sacks from both units) and if we can keep our starters on offense healthy, then we can't be stopped. so if we can find a few more guys to step up on offense (like maybe getting our best two rbs healthy) then we should be fine till we can figure out how to key the offense around gresham (the only offensive player to catch a touchdown pass).

hey

red/white game is saturday @ 1pm. i'm going with my wife, sister, and brother in law. if you want to come it'll be a 10 spot at the door. it might be fun to get a large group of people to go. i'd like to walk from my house (about a 30-40 min hike) and then stop by campus corner on the way back. if none of that is in the plans for you, then we'll have to hang some other time this weekend.

and a little breakdown of football so far...

looks like we're gonna have to replace our only good wide out, our only consistent tb, our star defensive player mlb, almost all of our dbs, and our only player with a really great name (i miss joe... john already).

o line is in tact and qb should be just as good if not better next year, we just have to change the offense to throw to the gresham instead of kelly, then find a suitable rb. defense... well it couldn't get any worse than last year.

as far as the spring game, 1/5 of the team seems to be hurt and that includes all but two rbs. we'll get to see alot of 17 (madu) and the true freshman johnson that enrolled in spring. the all world recruit that we got won't be here till summer, so i bet he redshirts. my guess is that the defense will completely shut down the running game and wilson will flip a switch and let bradford pick them apart.

first there was serverprime, then along came gamerprime...

i now introduce playerprime to teh internets.

i had a few ideas of names and some seemed better than others, but right before i hit the next button to name it something else playerprime hit me. i also thought about player(2)prime, but that would have been a little too on the nose.

ok, its time to get to bed. updates and other such nonsense can wait till another day (and that day better damn well be friday at the latest).

to continue our thread from earlier:
Many "progressive" legal academics are still writing articles for the Warren Court and those "liberal" federal courts. This raises a very difficult question about the current composition of the Supreme Court and other federal courts.
I think it is important that we not jump to conclusions too hastily. It does seem, however, at least as a preliminary hypothesis, that some evidence suggests that the Warren Court is no longer sitting. Moreover, it appears that there may have been somewhat of a change in the composition of the federal courts in what might be called a right wing direction. If this were true--and I advance this claim only hypothetically--then it could be argued that addressing the federal courts to achieve "liberal" or "progressive" ends might no longer be as effective as it once was. But clearly, it's too soon to jump to such conclusions.
Howard Zinn's fond outlook on the warren court to the rescue!

today i would personally like to spearhead a movement to drive to dallas every other weekend. not only do i loath the entire state, but i have a personal hatred of that godforsaken city. that being said, i'm down with buying gas and driving every time. who's with me?

maybe we can help me create some much needed happy memories in texas.

billy,

there was something always nagging at me when thinking about the insanity of huckabee's plan to ruin the economy. i think that if he tacked on a wealth cap to this "fairtax" then i might actually think that this could work. does the fairtax ever do anything about large amounts of money that will never be spent?

there must be a number out there that is in between what bill gates owns and what i myself own that 95% of people can agree is more than enough money for any one person to control freely.

WOOHOO

i got my one wish for christmas. MATT'S HOME! if he hasn't called you yet, he will. he had a heck of a day yesterday. so be patient and the christmas cheer will come to you in good time.

now the dread is setting in. i know it sounds like a dream to get to fly to an island southwest of japan in the middle of winter, but it is always hard for the husband to meet the in-laws for the first time. especially if they don't speak english. well, that might make it a bit easier, but it still will be kinda stressful. i just wonder how much they will want to bust my balls before they accept that i'm not going anywhere? i'm definitely gonna get my ass kicked by a 70+ year old man before we come home.

on top of that, mom's coming. so, when we start week #3 i will be in full on stressed out mode. 5 bucks says i make an ass out of myself. i just can't describe how nervous i am for this trip and how important it is for everything to go well.

we might be able to get to a computer with internet access and the ability to type in english, so i will try my best to post a couple of times while i'm there.

3 and a half days.

86 hours.

5160 minutes.

309600 seconds.

as much as i feel that i have gotten the short end of the stick, (since 2/3 of oklahoma got their power back before we did) i watched the news last night and felt guilty. there is some town 40 minutes north of okc that won't get power for 8 to 10 more days. the entire damn town. they might only have 600 people, but thats still really bad. and i figure there are probably 100 towns in the same predicament in oklahoma alone.

so, if you have power be thankful. and please, don't power up your christmas lights until after this weather is over. i can't politely explain how irritating it is to have a cold house when the people two houses down have an animatronic santa waving at you. they might as well have put a gigantic middle finger made of lights on their roof.
