Putting the “Action” back in “Action Figure”

Tuesday, June 29th, 2004

Hey peeps, feast your eyes on this. Isn’t that the sexiest chunk of plastic you’ve laid eyes on? I saw one in Sprogs R Us, and it actually looks even more like young, hot Harrison Ford in person than in the pic. That is for sure going on my BDay/Yule wish lists, though I dunno […]

Smile, Baby!

Monday, June 28th, 2004

Damn, doesn’t that just make your freaking morning? Happy 38th Johnny! Here’s to many more years of being the edgy, smart, well-groomed, talented, anti-Hollywood, thinking woman’s sex symbol, Gen-X poster boy that we all know and love. And for all of you, I added two new Cusack pics to my Hotties gallery, one of which […]

You Want Fries With That?

Sunday, June 27th, 2004

Did a whole bunch of stuff this weekend, including going to see Supersize Me. I’m not about to try to write a review of it, since it’s a documentary, and documentaries aren’t real movies. Still, it was worth seeing. It will definitely put you off food for a few days, though. Now that I’ve had […]

Hooray for the ALA

Thursday, June 24th, 2004

Unbeknownst to most people, the American Library Association’s huge semi-annual conference is going on right now in Orlando. I love ALA week! I haven’t been a member since library school, and I’ve never attended, but I love it anyway. My boss always goes, and so do three-quarters of the annoying vendors and librarians that I […]

“What? Like an Irish monk?”

Lebowski Fest pictures are here. Note: If you haven’t seen The Big Lebowski, many of the terms and references in this post will make no sense, especially the costume descriptions. That’s your problem! Go watch the movie!

The Louisville Trip

Wednesday, June 23rd, 2004

I think I’m gonna do this in sections. One post about Lousiville in general, and one about LebowskiFest. I recommend opening up a second browser window so you can look at the pics and read along at the same time. Since my pics don’t have captions, everything in bold refers to a picture. Let’s begin!

“And proud we are of all of them”

Tuesday, June 22nd, 2004

Back from the LebowskiFest. I think it will take us a few days to sort through the photos and get them posted, so I’ll write up a detailed report then. Just wanted to say that we got back ok.

“You’re entering a world of pain”

Thursday, June 17th, 2004

Yup, tomorrow is Lebowski Fest! Still much to do on this end. I’ve written the cat-sitting instructions for my mom, now I have to pack. I’ll need my combat boots, black tie, and Rammstein t-shirt, and Boy Wonder has to go pick up his Brother Seamus costume from the rental place. What else? I know […]

I think I found new desktop wallpaper

Way Up North

Wednesday, June 16th, 2004

I just checked weather.com, and found out that the humidity in Pittsburgh right now is 100%. Yet it isn’t raining. How is that even physically possible?? It all makes me even happier about the fall vacation we’re planning. We knew we wanted to go to northern Atlantic Canada, but we couldn’t decide between Nova Scotia […]

Oh yeah, we go way back

Tuesday, June 15th, 2004

After I finished my Gary Oldman musings yesterday, it hit me that I was off when I said I’ve been a fan for 10 years. It’s actually more like 13!! Holy cow. If Gary and I had a child (and wouldn’t that be one homely sprog??) it would be in Junior High by now! Egad, […]

You’d Smirk Too…

Hey Mo! Hey Mo!

Sunday, June 13th, 2004

Nah, this isn’t a post about the Three Stooges. I planned on having friends over for a cookout this weekend, but none of them could make it. I was gonna give up, but early in the week, my bud Whistler aka Dave stepped up to the plate. He and Stacy were coming out here so […]

In Honor of Ronald Reagan

Friday, June 11th, 2004

…the post office is not delivering mail today. And I was due to receive a Sebastian Bach DVD from Netflix!! Damn, he goes on being evil even from beyond the grave! Just for that, Ronnie, I’m gonna post a link to this nice article here, which features an adorable photo of our own Donald Rumsfeld […]

Don’t. Wanna. Hear. It.

Tuesday, June 8th, 2004

They say you should never talk about religion or politics in mixed company. I’d like to add a third topic: Food. Seems like no one can talk about food without being insufferably rude. Here’s some guidepoints for the ettique-challenged.

And the Bitch Goes On

Monday, June 7th, 2004

As y’all could probably guess, I did survive my semi-annual meeting. It went pretty much as expected. Although there was less groaning and bitching than I feared, there was still plenty to go around. Much of it had to do with our web site, and you can guess who’s job site maintenance is! So the […]

Harry Potter & The Prisoner of Azkaban

Soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo not worth it.

News of the World

Saturday, June 5th, 2004

Just a little while ago, I was at CNN’s site and I saw these two brief words: Reagan Dead Wow. Do you realize I’ve been waiting twenty-three years to read that headline?? See you in Hell, Ronnie. In other news, I give up. I am never, ever, ever gonna watch horse racing again for as […]

Just What is a ‘Nittany’ Lion Anyway?

Tuesday, June 1st, 2004

Later this morning I’ll be off with Dumbass Boss (DaB) to Penn State University for a 2-day meeting. Oh the joy. See, twice a year, the library group that I work for invites our members to a meeting to discuss business, give a budget update, and so on. It invariably sucks, but I think this […]
