Last night I got proof as I watched one of the neighborhood cats use it as a litterbox. I figured that the cat did what came naturally, its shit was providing fertilizer for a future lawn, and if having cats around means fewer mice and rats then the more the merrier. Besides, the heavy yet brief rain which pelted the neighborhood shortly after the shat provided a cleansing.
Long Day At The Salt Mine
I got stuck working late due to a decision I made to download a huge file from Apple (no, not Safari for Windows). My philosophy is that if I am going to stay past 5pm I might as well stay until 7pm (or go to happy hour) since the traffic in this town sucks so much ass. Also hampering my original night plans was the fact that I didn’t get hungry enough to warrant the La Casita dinner that I was craving; instead I rustled up a mess of spaghetti instead.
I also had plans to make a long-overdue return to The EARL for a show (last night was the Great Lake Swimmers but I was completely worn out by show time and had no motivation to leave the house.
Something Has To Give
I spent seven days in Arizona without a single day of sneezing or having a runny nose. I’ve been back fewer than two weeks and have spent the past two days sneezing and wiping up. It could be my house, my office, Atlanta, or the fact that I spent over two hours running around in the woods on Sunday, but no matter what the cause I am fucking miserable.

I haven’t taken a photo in days so I’ll have to dig up something a little stale for today. Consider it like eating tasty leftovers.
An attractive girl drinking a beer at a baseball game — for me it doesn’t get much better than this. Of course her beer of choice is crap and she was not at the game with me, so it’s not the ideal scenario but for leftovers it ain’t that bad.
Aw Man, Mr. Wizard Died
Although I didn’t discover Mr. Wizard until I was older than his target audience I always thought that the science experiments he led children through were neat. Don Herbert, aka “Mr. Wizard”, passed away at the age of eighty-nine yesterday. It looks like his final science experiment is either going to be determining the time necessary to produce complete decay of organic matter, or measuring the amount of heat produced by the combustion of a human body.
I’d have far more respect for Hell’s Kitchen if the elimination process was less subjective. How is it possible that Aaron is still on the show? The man has barely participated, and when he does he is a complete fuck-up. Aaron wasn’t even nominated for elimination! Eddie may not have been a good little cook, but he was certainly more worthy of staying than Aaron.
I’ve only seen one episode of Pirate Master so I cannot completely judge whether I am going to stick this one out or not. What I have figure out so far is that it’s typical over-the-top Mark Burnett production. So far the only thing that I’ve really enjoyed about the show is that I got to find out what happened to former Kansas City Chief running back Christian Okoye — and he was voted off last week.
