Random Thoughts/Complaints (not running related)

This Is It made over $100 million last weekend at the box office. You would have to strap me down to a chair and hold my eyeballs open, ala A Clockwork Orage, to get me to sit through that film. I thought Michael Jackson was a very creepy pop "star", and most likely a pedophile, while he was alive and am surprised at how captivated everyone is by him now that he's passed on. I don't know what this says about society in general, but its frightening to say the least.

On a more positive note, the Browns are an embarrasement to themselves and to the city of Cleveland. Derrick Anderson had about the worst statistical performance in history, finishing with a passer rating just above 10. His passer rating in the first half was 0, I didn't even know that was possible. In fact I think DA's stats over the last four games might just be the worst in NFL history. The fact that Mangenious refused to go to Quinn is just baffelling. Quinn wasn't lighting things up the first couple of weeks but he wasn't terrrible either. At the very least, let Cribbs take over as QB. How much worse could he be? To add to the misery, no one could hang onto the football and we ended up with 5 turnovers. After the game Jamal Lewis said he was retiring at the end of the season, I can only hope the majority of his teamates and front office people do too.

My company has started a new snacking "campaign" at work, where people are penalized for bringing in junk food. That's all well and good but it's the Monday after Halloween and there's no friggin candy in the office! Are you serious??!!! I need some candy, pronto! All this healthy eating thing is making it difficult to get away with my normal junk food diet. I realize that's sort of the point, but it doesn't mean I'm happy about it. Off to Dairy Queen, I need a Blizzard...

  1. I agree with you on the Michael Jackson statements. It drives me crazy how much attention he's gotten since he's died. The world hated him the day before he died (right or wrong), but now he's labeled as an icon...(?)

    Go Eagles. :)

    I like candy. :)
