Val Spring 2010

Yes, TODAY I got my Dell!

Good grief, there are instructions on the box to tell you how to open it properly (well, for the flat screen monitor anyway). I suppose I should be putting it all together right now, but instead I'm sitting here watching my alma mater fight it out with Texas on the Rose Bowl (no, I'm really not a big football booster, and if anything taught me what a Big Business college football can be, it was attending USC, but... whattheheck). The game is going fine, but... the half-time show. Now I know what school I went to and I never tried to make like it was Grambling or Alabama A&M or anything, but... good grief, WHO thought it would be a good idea to play Michael Jackson's "Beat It," complete with crotch-grabbing & thrusting choreography?!? That would have been passe' in 1986, much less here and now in 2006! And have we forgotten how Mr. Jackson spent his 2005 Spring Break?? Ah, whatever!

Hey! My sister just called!
Great news: she's got a story in the Chicago Tribune!!
Bad News: No byline (guess the story wrote itself?!?). But it'll be in newspapers tomorrow :>!
