The Anti-Cold

Whatever bug I have, it redefines "cold." Granted, with a high fever, I have been cold at times. But this NyQuil-resistant SOB also seems immune to Tylenol, Advil, and Excedrin. I'll be in quarantine if you need me...

Michael Vick Sentenced

In August, I felt like former NFL'er Michael Vick's sentencing day would never arrive. I don't feel the need to rehash the crimes, but you can certainly hit Google and find the gruesome details.

Today we found out Vick will serve 23 months in a federal prison. With good behavior, he'll be eligible for parole in 20 months. The sentence is delightfully longer than I expected, and preliminary reactions from animal rights groups indicate they approve as well.

The media has barely touched on what is to become of the dogs seized in the raid. I am pleased to say that 22 of the 48 dogs are on their way to the Best Friends Animal Society in Kanab, Utah. Here, the dogs will receive the medical attention they need and be socialized until they are ready to be adopted through a rigorous screening process. Animals that may be too emotionally or psychologically damaged to ever go to a new family will have 'forever homes' at Best Friends.

"Where my stiches at?"

I recently started knitting and found an indispensable site, It provides knitters and crocheters a community, personalized toolbox, inspiration, and so much more. The motto: "where my stitches at?"

I'm back...

After many months, I'm going to get back into blogging. Don't be surprised if pure ambition has a slightly modified flavor, I'm a slightly modified person!

This shirt gave me a little giggle when I found it. My organization has recently been struggling with many mysterious Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) issues. I'd get one for each member of that project team, but somehow I don't think they would share in my amusement. $14.50 USD from errorwear.

Trans Fat Ban

Philadelphia has jumped on the "banned-wagon" and decided to keep trans fat out of food served in the city. I think this sort of restriction is absurd. Now, if this is what we were banning, I would feel differently!
