What the hell, GS.  I'm gone for a week and a half in about 24 hours.

It's Friday and I am bored.  The boss just made me go outside and mow the grass, but it hasn't rained in so long that it was more like mowing dirt.

I'm reading about Eris now.  Both the goddess and the planet... Because Pluto just got demoted again.  Now Eris is the biggest dwarf planet and Pluto is number two.

I think there's an anti-Pluto conspiracy.

So the guy who discovered Eris wanted to call it Xena.  His justification is that it's okay to name something after pop culture because "Pluto is named after a cartoon."

I think it's important for our genius astronomers to not know what the planets are named after.

And then I looked up the wikipedia entry for Earth, to see if I could learn anything about those strange Earth Creatures.

Then there's Jericho.  I loved the leaked pilot, then they remade it and fagged it up.  The show flounders and gets cancelled... But the write-in campaign gets it seven more episodes.  And, just today, they brought it out to the full 13 new episodes.  So it gets a second chance...  Is it actually a good show?

Yeah.  Really promising Pilot Mark 1.  Then they did Pilot Mark 2 where all the dark stuff was taken out.  So instead of killing the sheriff at the end of the first episode, the prisoners take him hostage and everything works out. 

The internet is so slow at work (12 minutes to load amazon.com), I can't review the old GS Jericho thread:

There will come a day for every man when he will relish the prospect of eating his own shit. That day has yet to come for me.

I can't access Myspace from work.  Or much of anything else.  I'm reduced to watching that "Badgers" thing. 

I leave at 5:30, though.  An hour train ride to the distant suburbs for movies.  Blah.  I can go home and do that and die like a real person.  Maybe mix my own blood with vodka and drink it real fast.  Stuff like that.
