I just finished my fantasy football draft through Fox Fantasy. I have no idea how I did. I tried to pick top players, but when it comes to football, eh, I ain't got it. QB - Peyton Manning & Donovan McNabb RB - Thomas Jones & Tatum Bell WR - Joe Horn, Chris Chambers, Joe Jurevicius TE - Todd Heap K - Shayne Graham Defense - Chicago. How did I do? Any Ideas?
I watched 4 hours of the KYLE XY Marathon and finished up with the season finale. It wasn't a bad show seeing that I heard about it for the first time this past Sunday when one of my students asked why Kyle didn't have a belly button right in the middle of my lesson. I had to look into it and found it on last night after work. I liked it. Good show. A family that works together and a father that's respected by his kids. Generosity, values, kindness, team work, giving the bad kid a second chance, the typical blond bombshell slut wannabe, and even the pure virgin who gets confirmed in her catholic church and pledges abstinence until marriage. I tunes has the whole season. I likes what I saw.

Fridays off is a welcome concept. I spent yesterday doing absolutely nothing productive. I went to see Snakes on a Plane. WOW. If I'd paid more than $4, I'd have been ticked, but hey, nothing better to do. This morning I woke up at my normal before 7AM. I decided to take out some trash and go see mom and dad. The highlight of my day so far is buying Dad a new laptop. I love spending other people's money. I wonder if I could make a living at that. I really need to be cutting grass, but RV is on, so I'll put it off as long as possible. Friends coming over tonight and so will end a wonderful weekend for Jeff.

I'm kicked back in the recliner, sipping coffee, enjoying my morning off, surfing on these 30 second per blog traffic grabbers, and vaguely listening to the Today Show. I just heard about a Forbes article that included an opinion of a web writer who had told men not to marry career women. According to the Today Show, women ALL OVER AMERICA are OUTRAGED! It's a kick back to the 50's! According to one woman, every time women advance, MEN, STINKIN' MEN, try to hold them back. Forbes pulled the article and re-inserted it next to another article by a happily married career woman. WHO CARES???!!!!! Why is the written opinion of one man news worthy? Slow news day? Can't report any more death, dismemberment, Tom Cruise Blues? WHO CARES???!!!!!! Why has it outraged so many working women? Nothing else to do? Worried about pink slips from pig male bosses? At least it will cut down on the nerdy guy in the mail room stalking you, RIGHT? WHO CARES!!!???? This adds to my disdain for all the local and national news asking for "YOUR OPINION" through polls and phone calls. If I want your opinion, I'll ask you, but mostly, I don't care. I hope the feeling is mutual. Have a nice day!

Senseo is sending me a one cup coffee maker. I've not been a big fan of one cuppers because I drink way too much and the "pods" are fairly expensive, but I've seen a good need for it lately. A quick cup on the way out of the house or just one cup at night. I usually throw away much more coffee than I drink, so this will be a welcome change. Rick got me hooked on the one cupper with his Keurig machine. I'm looking forward to comparing the two.

Kim informed me I was negative yesterday. She was basing her assumption on some key events that happened this past week. What do YOU call a 75 year old man riding a bicycle in the middle of the lane of a major two lane road during rush hour? What do you call an incompetent drive through worker who tells you "please pull up and wait" just for a drink? What do you call the person who decided that starbucks coffee needed a "citrus" taste? IT'S COFFEE, NOT ORANGE JUICE!! I call them IDIOTS! I did call a guy a jerk for taking a parking place that was his anyway and because of recent road work and traffic delays I did rename the Lake Murray Damn the Lake Murray Da@%*! That was uncalled for BUT THAT'S BESIDE THE POINT! I don't think I'm getting negative. People are just getting more STUPID. Wow, I'm glad that's off my chest. Have a nice day!
