I'm all "busy" with "work" so far "today", but I did want to take a moment to note that my MNF picks record so far this season now stands at 100%! Sharp-eyed observers may note that I said the Falcons would win by at least 7, but the way this tally is gonna work is that if I get the winner straight-up and with the spread, this will be considered 100% accurate. Only one of those things correct will be called 50% and anything else like the actual point spread or final score or whatever else I may throw out there before the game improbably turning out to be correct will result in a score of 110% or better. Also, I was not aware of this other band with Eagles in their name that Stewf mentions in the comments at the time I made my prediction, and though I'm not familiar with their work they seem like they might be kinda cool, at least 3 points cool anyway. Therefore, had I had all the facts at my disposal I probably would have said Falcons by at least 4 points. But that is only speculatory, so I will have to accept my 100% accuracy rating graciously and try not to think of what coulda been. Now, while I return to my graphing of the FY05 Q1 Market Share Analysis, feel free to amuse yourselves with this hilarious dancing cheese (can't hear the song? do something! you must hear the song) and if you ever tire of that, I'll have you know that there are other things which dance as well. Oh, AND something else which a dancing item on that list reminds me of: can anybody tell me what the hell is up with Betty Boop being so popular amongst a certain segment of the population (the same segment which collects I Love Lucy paraphenalia and funky cow-themed doodads, I think)??? She's not really a very attractive character, and I can't imagine that many folks in this day and age have actually seen many of her cartoons, so... Seriously, this issue has bothered me for many years now and I think it's time I got to the bottom of it once and for all. Any reader thoughts and theories on the subject would be appreciated.

Re: The Lack of Charm in Boopness....one of my coworkers has a cubicle *full* of Boop. Why anyone needs a Boop "Welcome Mat" in their cubicle, or anywhere, is far far beyond me.

But what I find even more disturbing than *that* is the major Poohdom among my coworkers.
Cubicles full of Pooh.

(And all such collectors here are over 50.)

man, people talk about New York being all dirty, and yet where is it that people are being forced to work in cubicles full of poo? Portland. I call these conditions deplorable and echo the previous commenter by labeling this situation fucking mest uppp, yo. As far as your Boop-fixated co-workers, perhaps you could take a moment one of these days to grill her extensively on the whys and wherefores of this inexplicable adoration.. Oh, and if, go forbid, Boop merchandise were suddenly outlawed and she had to choose a Looney Tunes character to base her entire self-image around, which one would she choose? Tweety, right?

Well, Portland does wash away the filth with the rain....or Liquid Sunshine as I refuse to call it, unlike some of the Natives.

Tweety. Ooooof. Ask any tattoo artist what they hate inking the most and you'll hear:

1. Boring black modern primitive stuff (time consuming and dull)

2. Tweety

3. F'n Tazmanian Devil

4. the name of a boyfriend/girlfriend, which always always dooms a relationship.

i asked one tattoo artist friend of mine what the quickest turnaround Time of Loverrrrrr's Name Tattoo Regret was and: He inked the guy in the afternoon and before close that night the customer called asking for a cover up.
