One thing that has seemed sort of strange in the whole Palin discussuion, was the names that the Palins gave to their children.
I mean; Track, Bristol, WIllow, Piper and Trig aren’t names you hear every day (if ever). Turns out there’s a reason for each one.
When anyone else hears the word/name “Trig” is the first thing that pops into your mind Trigonometry? (or is it just me?)
One thing that I think many of the big name pundits and inside-the-beltway consultant types are missing about the Palin selection is how it appeals to the Republican base.
The base, which was turned off to the GOP-establishment in recent years has finally gotten a candidate they feel they have something in common with. It may be on a variety of issues or just one or two, but the appearance of outside the beltway new blood. Either way, the base itself sounds rather excited by the pick.
Alas, the pundits, who have little to know understanding of the way these people in “flyover country” think, probably will fail to grasp this concept.
The glories of Saturday Football
The Buckeyes Win!
Though Beanie Wells’ injury is somewhat concerning.
Hooray for the return of football!
People who argue politics on the internet who don’t have a sense of humor absolutely suck.
No, didn’t watch it myself. Was sick. Didn’t plan on viewing it either. In terms of fairness, I’ve got no plan to watch McCain’s either.
Some of the co-workers today were gushing over it. These were people who were for Hillary (females who though a woman would be best) but now the say they feel safe voting for Obama. [Like they weren't going to vote for him anyway?]
Seems like a very shrewd move by the McCain campaign to announce their pick today.
Okay, gotta follow the pack and make some comments on McCain’s veep choice.
She’s more attractive than Obama’s veep choice.
The question is how much “gravitas” the VP pick really has (if any) on a ticket.
From the little I know, she sounds like a good leader and figure. She killed the “Bridge to Nowhere”, supports the 2nd ammendment and is from outside the beltway. (Most of the other issues I don’t personally care about).
Got a late day workloada surprise at work and since then I’m just not feeling too well.
Sitting here with a cup of tea, hoping that green tea will once again work its wonders for me.
Wired excerpts a Lancet article on the visual effects of what can happen when one uses steroids.
Based on the pictures though, from A to B, did the guy even have a good PCT put together? Was he restricted from lifting during those 8 weeks?
/Doesn’t use gear
//No plans on ever doing so
///So what if my genetics are sub-optimal
////Tomorrow is LEG DAY!
For some reason I’m feeling a bit low right now. Really don’t know why.
It’s that kind of feeling where one just feels like they could use a good slap upside the head. Yeah…that would do it.
This holds true for both the DNC and the RNC….BORING!
Unless there’s a speech like Zell MIller’s in 2004, these acts of political pagentry are just boring.
It’s what’s for dinner on this glorious Meat Monday
(Yes, I often plan my dinners by the first letter of the day of the week).
Beef! Beef! Beef!
Why would a gym host a happy hour at a bar?
As alcohol is not condusive to weight loss/muscle gain, doesn’t it seem a bit odd for a gym to be promoting this?
Spent the day at a picnic on the Great Lawn in Central Park.
Beautiful weather today to boot.
We even saw a couple get engaged from where we were sitting.
Alas, I’ve got a bad headache now (too much sun?) So off to bed I go….
Half the department was out today….quite overwhelming…
Thank goodness for sleep on the weekends.
This sounds likely if you consider all the hormones that must be running through the athletes.
Mayor Bloomberg is proposing windmills ontop of large buildings and structures like the Empire State Building and Brooklyn Bridge.
Aside from the logistics of getting the windmills up–how much power do windmills actually generate? Probably not enough to meet most of the power needs for these buildings/structures.
Don’t think this plan will get too far…
Rep. Tubbs-Jones, who represented my hometown district, passed away this evening.
She died from a brain aneurysm and crashing at the intersection of Lee Road and Monticello.
Sad and strange. Not to mention the media sort of botched the coverage of the story.
Had a craving for some red meat this evening. Unfortunately, hte butcher didn’t have any extra lean ground beef or any bison available (awww!).
Settled for some turkey instead…something I’ve not had since, wow, Passover time maybe (come to think of it).
Something new caught my eye however–kosher elk!
Seemed interesting. Anyone ever had Elk before? Care to share opinions?
I hate how my brain tends to over contemplate and overthink things…
