What is with people who take silly online roleplaying games way too seriously? Since I can't play The Sims 2, I've been wasting time playing a Facebook game called Vampire Wars. It's your basic loop of kill, gain abilities, gain skill points, repeat.

Well, I dusted some whelp who got pretty bent out of shape over it - sent me a message telling me not to fuck with her and everything. Judging by the tiny Facebook profile photo, it looked like I was dealing with a teenage girl. This child was apparently under the impression that a game called Vampire Wars would be all fluffy clouds and cuddly kittens and how terrible that her character got killed - how could that ever happen? So, I did what any self-respecting jagoff would do in the situation: I bided my time to wait for her character to regenerate and then killed her off again...repeatedly.

I know I'm an asshole, but in many ways I've ceased to care.

Just now, I dropped by Yahoo! News and one of the current top stories is a riveting Associated Press piece with the following headline: "Obama takes a break for some chili and sausage." Depending on the President-elect's intestinal fortitude, I predict that within the next hour, the AP will post a follow-up story bearing the headline "Obama takes a break at the loo."

How second day back and I am still tired. I shall write something more substantive when the brain cells begin cooperating again. Hopefully that will be tomorrow...

From the Times Online:

San Francisco is to hold a vote on whether to rename one of its largest sewage treatment facilities after George W. Bush, in what supporters describe as “a fitting monument to the President’s work”.

More than 8,500 signatures have already been gathered in support of the plan — 1,300 more than the minimum required to get the proposal on the November ballot. The scheme was devised by an official-sounding group called the Presidential Memorial Commission of San Francisco.


The official renaming ceremony — the sewage facility is currently named the Oceanside Water Pollution Control Plant — would take place in January, when the next President is sworn in. Part of it would include a “synchronised flush”, described as a way to send a gift to the renamed plant.

Bush I got an airport in Houston named after him. This seems fitting for Bush II.

Happy Festivus!

First off, I have a lot of problems with you people...

Second, which one of you wants to be first in line to have me kick their ass?

I don't have an "official" pole, but I figure that my microphone stand is close enough. Neither an XLR cable nor a popscreen count as "adornments."

Pittsburgh's football fetish has always intrigued me. To say that Steelers fans are devoted to their team is not only an understatement, but an insult. Steelers fans are righteously fanatical about their team! As such is the case, anything which displeases the denizens of Steeler Nation will not go unspoken for very long.

The Steelers recently named a new mascot; ladies and gentlemen, meet Steely McBeam. I admit, I almost feel sorry for the foam-rubber guy, as initial fan reaction to Steely has been quite negative. At only two days old, Steely is already the Poochie of professional football. On the up side, being yellow, Steely is a shoe-in for a guest spot on The Simpsons and Pittsburgh fans can at least be proud that they have a mascot whose name could allow him to moonlight as a gay porn star.
