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.
Sunday, 5/30/04 - Sorry that my entries have been few and far between during recent months... I've been involved in a time-consuming lawsuit regarding my alleged sodomizing of a lemur. It seems that this practice is illegal when conducted on city property... specifically in the lap of the giant Alex Haley statue in Morningside Park here in Knoxville.

I never was a regular viewer but when I did happen to catch an episode, I found it to be a fairly clever sitcom. Particularly memorable was an episode years ago involving Ross's door-slamming pet monkey.
"Frasier," another long-running NBC comedy is also coming to an end next week. I saw an article about the two shows' finales on CNN.com today. Also on the site was a readers' poll...
I think it's hilarious that "Frasier" is running neck-and-neck with "Neither."
Also on CNN was this article concerning a brain-damaged woman hospitalized in Florida and the governor's (Dubya's brother) intervention to keep her alive. Although the story is certainly not humorous, the combination of E-mail Alerts listed on the page was...
Thursday, 5/6/04 - WE'RE NUMBER 9!!!!!!!!
Last week, Knoxville made another list.
And if that isn't bad enough, Knoxville is home to the University of Tennessee, and its Go Big Orange Country Volunteer football team, and we have to put up with this stuff...
