The last couple of weeks have been even more boring and uneventful that usual for me. Unless you count my absolutely dominant performance in the company off-site event. And since you desperately need the details, enjoy:
|Softball||3 inning pitched, 2 earned runs, 4 strikeouts; 1-2 batting, 1 RBI|
|Football||0 catches, 1 rush for a first down; 1 defensive interception|
|Soccer||1 assist; helped injured teammate get ice and medical assistance|
Some News, Notes, & Links from Kra's life
- I watched the Rock Paper Scissors (RPS) Championship on ESPN last weekend -- like you wouldn't watch if it came on. I don't think I've seen more unintentional comedy packed into one hour. I can't even describe how much the contestants were into it, like one dude who called himself "Shears" and wore mittens over his hands. There were token hot women who both competed and were clearly paid money to pose as 'girlfriends.' The highlight, however, was an old school expert's tips and tricks of the trade -- like putting down the look-away rock to demoralize your opponent; laying the upside-down paper to signify serving a subpoena; and busting out scissors at a 45-degree angle...to tell your opponent, peace-out. You can't make this stuff up.
- I'm going against one of my biggest principles here by kind of promoting something that I loathe. I haven't eaten at McDonald's in at least five or six years -- note that I can't say I haven't stepped foot in one though, since I've used the restrooms on quite a few occasions. Yes, I felt you needed to know this. Anyways, back to the point: the new McNuggets ad is absolute brillance. It's threatening to crack my top ten best commercial of all time, it's that good. If this doesn't make you laugh, something is wrong with you.
- I gave in and picked up the new T-Pain album. I didn't want to admit it, but that damn "Shorty Snappin'" song has really grown on me. I was actually pleasantly surprised by the CD, for the most part. Sure, there are a bunch of skippable tracks -- like one where he lets us know what he'd like to do on a girl's stomach (um, he's not the only one) -- but there are some good songs that can get stuck in your head. And isn't that enough to pass for quality nowadays? Good times!
