Bits and pieces

  • I'm doing laundry right now, and kept a close eye on the sump when the first drain cycle went, and the float went up like it was supposed to, but then got caught resting on the inlet pipe and I needed to knock it off the pipe to make sure the motor didn't run dry. So, we're getting there.

  • Euchre! CJ's organizing a tournament for anyone interested, and you can go find a partner and sign up and prepare to get your butts kicked. Details here.

  • If you haven't read Freakonomics, you should. Steven Levitt also used to play quite a bit of poker and is now working on his next project, pokernomics. Unfortunately, you've missed out on your chance to win a free autographed book of Freakonomics, but it looks like you'll still get the analysis if you send in >10,000 hands (all anonymous).

  • I find myself fascinated by Rita much like tornados fascinate me (and luckily we've had very few of the latter around here this year), and have added some of wundergrounds weather bloggers to my bloglines.

  • Sigh, the float got stuck to the side of the sump again, and now the backup sump went; I think something's seriously wacky. :(

  • Did you know the Cleveland Indians have a box of cereal playing left field? Too funny!

  • Also, got to listen to Big Sexxy's September 1st live show. Pretty good stuff, even if I do love the old school tunes the best. Y'all should bug him to write more in his defunct music blog.

  • I forgot to TiVo Kitchen Confidential. p0 Bradley Cooper, p0 me!

  • And CRIPES, my laptop battery refuses to charge. Grrrr.

Ok, going upstairs now to see if any water came out of the sump pump outside drain. Le Sigh.

Kitchen Confidential

I expected KC to be asstacular, but it was suprisingly good. Its also helps that its full of actors and actress that we've enjoyed in the past. Besides Bradley Cooper, who you mentioned, it has the following awesome people:

o Nicholas Brendon (Xander from Buffy)
o John Cho (Harold of "Harold and Kumar...")
o Frank Langella (from way too many things)

And this episode guest starred Bitty Schram best known as Sharona from Monk.

Also, it was funny as hell.

Random unrelated comment - have you seen this new book on podcasting?


May be useful in your project :)

Haven't seen it but thanks :) I think our main issue will be with the phone calls and poor audio reception

Along slightly different lines than weather weblogs, if you're fascinated by tropical systems and tornadoes and other weather whatnot, have you looked into e-WALL and weather.cod.edu? They came recommended to me by a meteorologist friend of mine...



yeah, yeah, I'll go back to lurking soon enough...

...weather sites only a geek could love, I suppose.

You might try WeatherImages.org though--it's got a lot more of TEH PRETTY than the obfuscated maps on the other sites. It's mostly a list of links I think, but I did find nifty animations of Rita from there, as well as webcams in places like Corpus Christi. (The one in Galveston seems to be down, and a few of the links appear to be out of date, but not bad on the whole...)

I got toooo grossed out by Nip/Tuck, but could appreciate it as a show. I'm looking forward to Veronica Mars toniht actually.
