Git Yur Vote On

Friday, September 29th, 2006

Yo, so, like, elections are, like, fast aproaching, and, like, you should be sure you’re, like, registered cause, it’s, like, important. You can even, like, just click that banner at the top of the page.

And if you are registered, be sure to get out and vote come November.

Pleasant Surprise

Wednesday, September 27th, 2006

As much as i hate all that is The MySpace, it appears they’re actually trying to leverage their user base for something other than stalking and/or pedophilia. Namely, voter registration. What a pleasant surprise.

So, not that i’m encouraging anyone to sign up on The MySpace, but, rather, if you have an account and haven’t registered to vote, then, like, now you can do it on your myspace.

I did not . . .

Pledge Drive

Monday, September 18th, 2006

KQED radio, our local NPR affiliate and one of the top two public radio stations in the nation (new york being the other), is in the middle of their pledge drive right now. They’re looking to raise about 1.5 million and they’re getting awfully close. So, if you got some spare cash lying around, i’m sure they’d appreciate it. Plus, you could find yourself with a copy of the The New York Times Practical Guide to Practically Everything, which, is like, a dream come true . . . or something.

Said One Receiver

“When I came out of that route, all I saw was daylight,” Bryant said of the play. “It was like being on the craps table … it was so close.”

What does that mean?

Wheel of Fortune

Monday, September 18th, 2006

Monday Night Football has moved to espn this year. Notable, for me, only because it’s no longer on ABC, which, when i was growing up, used to be channel 10 in good old sacramento. You see, Channel 10 also carried wheel of fortune which was nanny’s favorite show. I don’t know why it was nanny’s favorite show. she couldn’t understand english, so it’s not like she could participate in the puzzle solving. Perhaps it had something to do with the pagentry of wheel spinning or the excitment of the contestants (big money! big money!). I dunno. whatever it was, it was her favorite. So much so that it would be the duty of kevin and i to finish dinner before 7 so that we could turn on the tv and tune it to the Wheel for her. It was our daily ritual. except, of course, for mondays during the football season.

Well, nanny, I’m happy to report that football no longer gets in the way of wheel of fortune. five years after you’ve gone, they finally came to their senses.

Hmm . .. will i make it today?

Grill Broken In.

Tuesday, September 12th, 2006

The Chubury clan paid a visit this past weekend which seemed the perfect occasion to break in the new grill. The plan came together around noon as the first games of the day were finishing up. I made a break for the store between the 1pm and 6pm games to pick up all the supplies. rib eye steak, check. charcoal, check. tongs, check. measuring cups, check. measuring spoons, check. soy sauce, check. garlic, check.I got home, threw the marinade together, and started soaking the steaks. Jeff and Helen were kind enough to bring the rest.
The menu for the night:

Breaking in the grill

The grill was a bit hotter than anticipated which led to on charred steak, but all in all, a good first outing.
