       December 20, 2006

    • People realize that if Bush is impeached he'll still be in office, right? I've seen so many "Impeach Bush" signs and bumper stickers lately and I'm afraid that those people are setting their expectations way too high. I'm very concerned about the emotional well being of Madison's liberals
    • I would love to get an email from a retailer today or tomorrow that just said "Ha! Ha! You're screwed! It's too late to get anything in time for Christmas. We hope you learned your lesson, loser!"
    • I know it's not cool to watch Survivor anymore, but this season (it just ended on Sunday) was exceptionally good. The winner, Yul, was kind, athletic and intelligent and the runner-up, Ozzy, was extraordinarily athletic, introspective, and full of actual survival skills. As a viewer, it was so satisfying to see deserving people win for once.
    • Terrell Owens sucks in so many ways. I saw an interview with him and Michael Irvin (who also, by the way, sucks). Irvin confronted TO about sleeping during meetings and TO responded by asking Irvin if he ever slept through meetings. Then they both yukked it up. Professional athletes have no idea how the rest of us live, do they? Their fans don't sleep their way through business meetings. They don't spit on people who disagree with them. They don't openly mock their bosses. Owens wouldn't last a single day in the real world
    • Sometimes the best gifts really are free. My office does the Secret Santa thing and some inspired person is giving their giftee a series of "Brett Favre" autographed items. The first was a simple person letter from "Brett". It's brilliant and I'm so jealous I didn't think of it first. Next year...
    • Other people can have their turkeys and hams on Christmas day. To me, nothing is better than Christmas brats.
    • 60 Minutes unearths 16 miles of Holocaust records. Iran questions the timing.
    • It's almost time for another season of American Idol. W00T! It's possible that we may even have a professional singer/songwriter to help recap the upcoming season's episodes. So, look for something more insightful than "he sucked".
    • Finally, Merry Christmas everyone! Thanks for making writing here fun.

    did you feel kinda let down by real-life ozzy? i was very impressed with him in the game - he seems confident, unshakable - a machine. on the reunion show, though, he didnt seem any of those things. looked very unsure of himself. perhaps he was just so shocked that he didnt win? i thought he was a shoe-in. that must mean that they did extensive editing, huh?

    i dont blame TO for falling asleep in meetings. meetings are abused by so many managers. most managers in fact. i used to have a manager who insisted on a 1 hour morning meeting, every morning, with about 20 total people. i think it made him feel good about himself to have so many people "under him." in reality, maybe 5 minutes of every meeting would be something i needed to be there for. if that. way to waste 100 manhours a week, numbnuts.

    I liked reunion Ozzy too. I thought his whole comment about how life in the urban jungle has kind of taken away something that used to be inside of us was very insightful. I agree that he wasn't as confident after the show, but I think that comment showed why - that natural world really IS his element. He doesn't quite fit in in the modern world. That's kind of sad, but it's kind of cool that he's insightful enough to realize why he feels that way.
