Monday stuffs.

So it’s rolled around to Monday night again. It’s been kind of a foggy-brain day. That’s not a terrible surprise considering I spent half the weekend apparently sleeping off some sort of cold or funk of some sort. I’m just now getting my work-feet under me for the day. Just in time for it to […]


Lucas and Hamil to participate in special half-hour-long Robot Chicken “Start Wars” spoof episode: http://www.cnn.com/2007/SHOWBIZ/Movies/04/25/television.starwars.reut/index.html

It infests my brain.


So it took months. I had long since given up hope. Little had I expected it, in all places, to happen in the post office. You see, Pennsylvania, as a last act of retribution, decided I would not be able to electronically file my specific malady of tax return. So this found me down at […]
