A guy like me should wear a warning.

Tuesday, March 30th, 2004

I know, I know; I just can't be bothered to care. To put it in HR terms, perhaps I'm being too task-driven, rather than goal-oriented. Putting something here every day was a task, something to which I gave little thought and struggled to finish before the midnight deadline. And looking ...

Update your scorecards.

Corey Brown, 2 legs (dunno, probably Hot BBQ, it rocks) 4. Zack Bly, gardenburger Dinner: 1. Scott Jennings, 8 more legs (Hot BBQ) 2. Katy ...

It should be an honor just to be nominated.

The Scott Jennings Award For Excellence in Service of Scott Jennings is awarded only on special occasions, when a person's actions truly merit this distinctive honor. Today, the award will be shared by two people. First, Peter O'Bryan earned the handsome plaque by helping me install a new headlight switch in ...

I’m not drunk.

I guess one of the major disadvantages to hating everyone and everything is trying to convince people that I'm capable of love, you know, when that scenario arises. I envy the genuine, the universally liked. I don't know how they do it, and I don't know why I don't. I don't ...

Shut up.

Yeah, my bracket's fucked. What of it? Yeah, I went 28 for 32 in the first round, just to lose my national champion and practically everyone else in the second. I guess I'm just another 2 seed who got knocked out early. Waah waah waah! NCAA pools are hella dumb, anyway.

Adventures with my oven.

I continued to go crazy this afternoon, and picked up a box of MiniCarb Parmesan Herb Pizza Crust Mix from GNC (along with low-carb tortillas, sandwich rolls, spaghetti, and breakfast bars). I couldn't wait for some pizza, so Katy and I gave it a shot. The dough was easy enough to ...

I don’t even know what a snickerdoodle is.

You know how ads for low carb foods are everywhere? Are you wondering what kind of idiot they're marketing to? In the past two days, I've purchased low carb white bread mix, sourdough bread mix, cranberry-orange bread mix, pancake mix, ketchup, barbecue sauce, spaghetti sauce, alfredo sauce, snickerdoodle cookie mix, and ...

Word life, this is basic bracketnomics.

This is a very good bracket: (click to embiggen) As far as early upsets go, I like Pacific over Providence, mostly because it's de rigurer to pick a 12 seed to knock off a 5 seed, and also because I read an article in the Times over the weekend about how the ...

Not helping the heterosexual cause, here.

Time for me to come out of the closet: I'm an American Idol fan. Katy got me hooked from the season premiere, and I don't think I've missed more than one episode since. I was way too cool for the first two seasons, and now, I can only imagine what ...

I continue to cope with being a moron.

So I'm pulling into my driveway tonight (a dark and moderately stormy night), one of those classy gravel numbers up a steep-enough hill. And somehow (and I'm honestly not sure at this point), I lose traction and slide backwards and get my right rear tire stuck in some mud, quite ...
