Hi, I'm a weather pixie. OK, stop laughing. I SAID, STOP LAUGHING, DAMN YOU. Click here if, for some ridiculous reason, you'd like to know more about the current weather conditions in Knoxville, Tennessee.
Friday, 2/6/04 - Oh, this is just great...
Knox woman files suit over halftime show-induced 'injury'
Had to be... just HAD to be... from Knoxville.
Shame on her, and shame on her lawyer for filing that ridiculous lawsuit... and embarassing us here.
Personally, I'd like to sue David Caruso of CSI: Miami for being a bad actor. By airing this show that I as a viewer, view, CBS breeched an "implied" contract with me, a viewer, that the lead actors on their series actually have talent.
While we're at it, I think I'll sue Danny Devito for no reason whatsoever... but let Charles Nelson Reilly off with a warning.
Wednesday, 2/4/04 - Lend me some sugar, I am your neighbor!
I'm a little late in discovering this Quicktime video, and maybe you've already seen it, but check out "Hey Ya, Charlie Brown!" It's a clever idea and very well done. (That Snoopy plays a mean axe, man.) Better hurry, I can't guarantee the video will be there by the time you read this... the Peanuts lawyers are making everyone who's hosting the video take it off their sites for copyright reasons.
Also, check this Flash piece out concerning the state of the world's nuclear missile situation and prediction for The End of the World.
While you're at it, here's another video. The subject is characters' mannerisms compiled from seasons of TV's Law and Order. Sounds stupid, but it's pretty humorous.
Websites you'll be sorry you visited (the only halfway funny thing about these two sites is their titles... after that, it's all downhill):
And FINALLY, in honor of Black History Month...
Tuesday, 2/3/04 - I found a 3 year-old post of mine from a message board that I use to frequent. The topic was "New Year's Goals"...
Another one of my postings was under the topic "Would you ever live in a webcam house?" (living in a house with roommates while being constantly filmed live on the internet)...
Monday, 2/2/04 - Oh, what a strange evening it was last night...
No, my first name ain't baby. It's Janet. Miss Jackson if you're nasty.
After the Stupor Bowl was over, the first episode of Survivor: All Stars aired. I took wicked delight in seeing Knoxville resident Tina Wesson be the first one voted off the show. Ha ha ha. Now the local press here can't follow her continuing adventures. This article appeared in the Knoxville paper this morning. (Note: I don't normally ever use such harsh language on the site, but it just seemed to fit this time...)
In other news... I found this really cool animation showing the Mars rover's fantabulous journey to the red planet. Quite an amazing achievement, actually.
