(Don't forget to title the page...)

Saw Quantum of Solace on Sunday. That was pretty decent. I'm not sure it was better than Casino Royale, but all in all I'd say the new Bond is a success.

Saw this trailer later that day. Okay then. More Witch Mountain. The Rock looks funny though.

Then I saw this (trailer 2). Looks terrible. Do I really need to see Kirk acting like an idiot little kid? Seriously? Nothing breaks the mood of a Star Trek movie like having guys driving around in cars near mountains. Apparently we didn't learn our lesson from the rock climbing scenes from Star Trek V. (Worst. Movie. Ever.)

I have to wash Trek V out of my brain, so I found this really cool game that I can't stop playing called Robokill. It's like Robotron, but with a plot and levels and stuff. (Yes, I know, technically Robotron had a plot. And technically it's called Robotron:2084. But really. Let's just move on.)

Mah-nah-mah-nah vs. Star Wars. Delightful.

Did you know there's a Snoopy World War I flying Ace game coming out? Me neither. Looks fun though...

Oh, and Finally, a big shout out to my good friend Cindy (EJ's wife) who got her book published! Awesome, awesome, and more awesome. I am totally jealous and extremely happy for her at the same time. Good work, Cindy. Don't stop. We need more good books. Now everyone go buy it.

I took October off.

From updating my blog. To see if anyone noticed.

It is completely unclear to me whether or not anyone did.

I don't care.

I'm still typing. Look at the words, here, they were all typed by me. I can't stop typing. I'm a typing machine. What would you call a typing machine? A typewriter? That's ridiculous.

Today we're all about randomness because, well, why not? Forgive me if I ramble a little bit. This thing is going to cover all kinds of bases from sports to shoes to world of warcraft. Get ready. Here we go.

My favorite new mini-game in World of Warcraft is the "Can I type my password in fast enough that I don't have to watch the undead dragon land and make my screen shake" game. Seriously. I can't get enough of it.

Shoes. Imelda Marcos would have been proud. Wait, is she dead?

NBA standings as of today have 3 unbeaten teams: The Lakers (Yay!), The Jazz (good for Utah), and the Hawks (uh...what?). That would be the Atlanta Hawks. For those of you who don't follow basketball, let me give you an analogy. That would be like saying the three best companies that
make cake are Sara Lee, Duncan Hines, and Firestone. Yeah, try to figure that out.

Best part of the Muppets was always these two guys.

For the life of me, I can't believe I didn't see the last line of this video coming from a mile away, because...well, just because.

Oh my gosh, so much fun. ASSEMBLER! (Physics are neat).

I had a physical on Friday and my nurse told me I was "terribly healthy". My blood pressure is awesomely low and I had a great EKG. Afterwards the nurse was like "You don't smoke, do you?" And I was like "I do, actually." She gave me a look and she says, "Noooooo." Like she doesn't believe me. Isn't it great to be able to do that? I'm ridiculously healthy for an overweight smoker. That's good to know. The whole point was that I'm starting a clinical diet next wednesday. I thought I was going to have to start it on Friday, but the nutritionist is meeting with me next Wednesday. I asked the nurse if that meant I could continue eating like an idiot for five more days. Her response? "We don't recommend it."

Obama. That is all.

Ok, maybe that's not all. Actually heard from a friend of mine that some people at his job were taking the day off to recuperate because we'd elected a...well, that word...as president. They were calling it "Black Wednesday" (which is even funnier to me because the election was on a Tuesday. Just straight up smarts with these people.) Anyhoo, my friend called it Honkey Introspection day. Which made me laugh. So, I'm sharing it with you. I hope you laughed too.
