I arrived at work to find that we had received yet another upgrade kit. This one was for the newest arcade version of Need For Speed.

Once again, I got to take a dust-bath while I did this. No allergy problems, though.


Take a look at the last picture included in this report from Obama's plane, nicknamed O-Force One.

The chair where Obama sits has two lines of words on it. One says "Obama '08". The other says "president".

Seems a bit presumptuous to me. He hasn't been elected yet.


Speaking of Obama...

Found this in the commentary of this article. It's too good not to share:

"Yes we can!"
Can we drill for oil?
Can we finally admit the surge is working?
Can we run a campaign without calling critics, pundits and the other candidate racists?
Can we have town-hall meetings so regular people can ask both candidates questions in an open and free exchange of ideas?
Can we put aside partisan politics and run on the issues?
Can you pretend you've already won and have the media fawn all over Obama while ignoring McCain?
"Yes. We. Can."


The folks who run San Francisco are planning a $1,000 fine for folks who don't sort their garbage correctly.

Must be nice to be in charge.


From Hud's blog comes this:

There was a warning issued in June that there may be no polar ice this summer.

It's now August. Any news of it being gone? Nope.


On this day in 1962, Marilyn Monroe was found dead.


Okay. I have to get going. It's the fifth of the month - gotta go pay the rent.

Be seeing you.

Ssssh. We're trying to keep quiet the fact that Santa, the elves, the reindeer, and even Mrs. Claus all drowned ...
