I can't explain it but for some reason I really like those Alltell commercials where the dude yells "Wizard!" and the wizard comes to life from the painting on the side of the molester van. I often ponder how this phone company still exists because I have yet to meet somebody who uses their service. They are the service provider of the ACC so I'm pretty sure there must be some presence in this region.

Either way, I would really like to make "Wizard!" some sort of catchword. Sort of like "Ignore me!" from Venture Bros. I guess I'm just trying to rationalize why I want to yell "Wizard!" when nobody would have any idea what I'm doing.

Elsewhere on the magic front (hat tip Scott Adams) we have yet another reason not to go to the Congo. Apparently they have sorcerers there who can steal your penis (/shudder). Now that would be a bad vacation.

Embrace your inner geek

Sometimes the geek just comes bubbling up when you least expect it. My coworker was talking about training for a triathlon and maybe doing a duathlon instead.

Her: "I'm not sure. Tri or du. Du or tri."

Me: "Do or do not, there is no try."

Nobody got it.

Was I gone that long?

So, I had not checked my Google reader since Thursday until I logged in today. I had used my spare time at work to read the PvP comic instead of the blogs and other random sites that I normally do. Man, was I in for a surprise. I expected it to be big, but not 647 unread items big.

I mean, I had checked in on the ANTA bloggers sites but pretty much nowhere else. After marking all of Slashdot as read (no way I'm reading 140 odd techie geek things in a row) and running through a few other important sites I'm looking at 445 items. Shit.

And it's not like I'll be able to catch up at work today. I couldn't do it yesterday with having to fill 5 fucking sick calls, and today the boss is going to be sitting next to me doing my neighbor to the right's review. Yeah, I know I should be doing this sort of thing at home but I'm a bastard. I figure that even with my dicking around on the computer I do at least twice as much work as my coworkers.

Blogoverse, I beg of you, please don't update your blogs for at least a couple more days. And all of you motherfuckers without a full RSS feed should be shot.

Beat the Mets!

Beat the Mets/Beat the Mets/Step right up and beat the Mets!

Man, I like watching the Braves put the smackdown on the Mets. Kotsay needs to get used to the rest of his teammates, but had a nice assist. And my man Tex was the hero from both sides of the plate. It was also good see the team get back on track from a disappointing start to the season.

I'm going to refrain from making a prediction for the season, because every time I make a season long sports prediction I'm dead wrong. I'm just going to say that I will enjoy watching the Braves have an exciting season (and hopefully putting the Mets back in their place in the season series).

And I'm really glad the Thrashers won every game I went to this year and hopefully next year will be back in contention. Might need a coach to do that though.

In other news of the week I spotted a Wii at the Target near work. I immediately called Kuro to inform him that it was there and I would pick it up for him if he wished, but it went to voicemail. He called me back when I was back at work and I let him know which Target it was (fully expecting him not to go there) and was suprised three hours later when he called to tell me I was an asshole for making him drive over there and buy it! My arm does not thank me for it.

Oh well, now I need to head to Target to hoard up some ibuprofen.
