Deuling Scandals

So, which is in rougher shape in terms of its image- the NFL or the Tour de France?

Last Night (+ bonus garbage)

It was 80 degrees at 10:30pm.

That's just not right.

Bonus Garbage

On a TOTALLY unrelated note, bonus points to anyone who can identify the source of my new blog title without resorting to Google.

I now have a myspace page...not because I necessarily wanted one, but because my co-workers badgered me into it. I currently have two "friends"- is that good? No, I didn't think so either. I do have a cool song on it, though, so you know, I got that going for me.

I think I ate a bug

It's dark, the fans are blowing who-knows-what into my apartment, and I didn't bother to look before taking a big gulp from my class of soda.

At least it wasn't a big bug.

Last night was a good makes me a little more hopeful about the future.

Gilmore quits presidential race


It's probably a good idea to leave the race if nobody actually realizes that you are in it!

Before anybody gets any ideas... blogs new name has NOTHING to do with the establishment on Martha's Vineyard (nor it's uber-preppy ephemera), the Hound of the Baskervilles, or the Led Zepplin song. Study up on Winston Churchill if you're curious about it.

I wish to point out

that save for this very post, I have not said anything about the heat.

Attention Reader(s)

This past weekend while visiting my family I unexpectedly received a large amount of genealogical information from my mom, so I'm going to be a bit busy for the next few days. I hope you will bear with me.

At least make them work for their money!

I live across the street from a (dividede) parking lot.

On the right side of the parking lot is "Liquor Town," on the left side of the parking lot, the local police station.

Next to my building is a driveway in which a cruiser usually sits to a) watch the intersection and, b) to keep an eye on Liquor Town (duh).

That being said, it's probably not a good idea, after making your purchase at Liquor Town and getting back into your battleship-sized 1980's Cadillac, to drive over the curb between the two parking lots (creating the screeching noise that brought me to my window and drew the attention of the officer sitting in her cruiser (assuming she wasn't already watching the whole scene) and exit from the police station side of the lot while also laying down some tracks in the flower garden.

In a mere matter of seconds, officer one had pulled her over, two officers returning to the station pulled their cruiser in front of her, and another officer who had just exited the station on foot also sauntered over.

I'll summarize the remainder...

...the driver failed all of her sobriety tests.

...she got a bit "difficult" as she was being cuffed up, causing her to be "frog-marched" into the station.

...the non-arresting officers are currently going though the Caddy (light blue, black vinyl roof) and, judging by the amount of stuff on the roof of the car, finding a bunch of interesting things.

Short of actually crashing her car through the doors of the station I'm not sure she could have made it any easier.

Nice work!
