One of the few good things about modern times: If you die horribly on television, you will not have died in vain. You will have entertained us. ~ Kurt Vonnegut

If there's anything unsettling to the stomach, it's watching actors on television talk about their personal lives. ~ Marlon Brando
I have a question for you all. Do you still watch Saturday Night Live? If so, may I ask, why?
There isn't really anything funny about it, in my opinion, but that doesn't mean anything to the powers that be up at 30 Rock. Oh well.
Tomorrow is the end of the 2010 Winter Olympics, and all I can say is, finally!
It's not that I haven't enjoyed the Olympics. No, in fact, I have enjoyed several Olympic moments from great (Shaun White ), to tragic (Joannie Rochette ), to down right embarrassing (Sven Kramer - actually it was his coach who is now in the witness protection program).
The Olympics were just that, the Olympics.
I'm glad that they are over tomorrow because it means we can get back to some NHL action. More specifically, some more Chicago Blackhawks action.
I could go for some of this as well,
So yeah, I'm glad the Olympics are over tomorrow, but not until one more game...
USA! USA! USA!

Reed, 15, is an ice dancer from Warren, N.J., but she is competing in the Olympics for the Republic of Georgia. In a move that is not unusual for a sport in which compatible partners are hard to find, she and the Georgian ice dancer Otar Japaridze paired up last May. Four months later, they unexpectedly qualified for these Games. By November she had a Georgian passport. Now she is a dual citizen.
The Reed family celebrated. Suddenly, they had three Olympians, not just two, at the dinner table, but none were skating for the United States. Allison’s older siblings, Cathy, 22, and Chris, 20, were headed to Vancouver as ice dancers, too — for Japan. The ice dancing competition began with the compulsory dance Friday.
“I know it sounds a little crazy and confusing but we’re so happy to be at the Olympics together, no matter what country we’re representing,” Cathy Reed said of the three-Olympian family. “To be honest with you, this whole experience has been a little crazy.”

I went to school and I had my trusty backpack with me, it had all the essential items required for a day at school, including a snack and a drink. Of course, the one thing that I had to have was my flashlight, because you never know when you might need one.

The only really good place to buy lumber is at a store where the lumber has already been cut and attached together in the form of furniture, finished, and put inside boxes. ~ Dave Barry

When they discover the center of the universe, a lot of people will be disappointed to discover they are not it. ~ Bernard Bailey
