I am convinced that Fox's Celebrity Boxing is the pinnacle of popculture wonderfulness and awfulness. Arnold Horseshack vs. Saved By The Bell's Screech. Wow. Utter genius. Probably not great boxing (some of the matchups seem a bit unfair..."Horseshack" is almost twice the age of "Screech", for starters..and 7'7" Manute Bol vs 375 lb. William "The Refrigerator" Perry??) but...wow. They look so angry...I'm not sure if it they're trying to get psyched up, or if they're just mad that their careers have brought them here. There should be a rule that they have to stay in character.
In other news, with the help of Brooke I gave the Love Blender a makeover the other day.
Oh yeah...I start my new job today! I think Ranjit nailed it when he offered "congratulations and condolences" about the end of my unemployment.
Quote of the Moment
"So, in short, you can't prove anything by one occurrence, or two occurrences, and so on. Everything has to be checked out very carefully. Otherwise you become one of those people who believes all kinds of crazy stuff and doesn't understand the world they're in. Nobody understands the world they're in, but some people are better off at it than others."
--Richard Feynman, "The Meaning of It All: Thoughts of a Citizen-Scientist"...I finally read a damn book, I've been way behind on my reading. This book was three lectures he gave, on the importance of doubt in science, and then by extension in life and morality and all of that.
