one more for the road

Still not about Joel’s wedding ;-)

I can’t decide if this is the funniest or most horrible thing I have ever seen. However, I could easily see reality television resulting in the apocalypse.

It appears that President Bush is doing the reverse of what Reagan did with Robert Bork in the 80’s: by nominating a centrist judge at first, he’s polarized the conservative senators by introducing a moderate candidate that nobody would support, then introduced a candidate with extreme right wing views that will have a much easier time at it because of the last candidate’s failure.

I can’t say that I’m surprised by the nomination of Samuel Alito, though maybe I should be as it means that Bush is living up to a campaign promise.

I really should have written about Joel’s wedding instead of this.

boo!

suspicously like a rollercoaster

This weekend has been full of some extreme ups and downs, which was perfectly mimicked by the many amazing roller-coasters at Magic Mountain, including Goliath and Scream.

Especially Scream.

This weekend at Magic Mountain was the most fun I’ve ever had at an amusement park. It was good to see Joel, even though it took him 2 attempts and 110 miles to finally get there.

While at Magic Mountain, we were recording the USCvNotre Dame football game. After making it 10 hours without hearing the score, the outcome was revealed right as we were about to watch the opening kickoff. No biggie, it was still amazing; Leinert called it “one of the greatest games ever played,” but then he did score the winning touchdown.

And now I come home to discover my Vespa stolen. If you see it around, let me know:

the more you know

Did you know that until the Supreme Court struck it down in 1965, there was a law that stated married couples could not legally use contraceptives in Connecticut?

1965. That’s only 40 years ago folks.

Those crazy northerners and their backwords ways.

you don’t even want to know what ryan did

For reference: Cuz is another member of the Groom’s party at Joel’s wedding. We’re discussing my best man speech below:

(15:12:22) Me: I’m kinda working simultaneously on the speech I wish I could do and the speech I’m actually going to do.

(15:12:54) Joel Conary: you can give the speech you wish you could do at the after-party

(15:13:16) Me: the speech I wish I could do starts out:
(15:14:29) Me: “I researched for quite a bit on what should be said in a best man’s speech, and about the only piece of information I could find was as follows:

Do not _EVER_ say you have slept with the bride.

And I haven’t. Which is why I’m best man and Cuz here is riding the pine”
