Random Thoughts, because I am allowed to blog again

Good morning sunshine.  No really, good morning sunshine.  It is bright outside.  Bright and hot.  It fees like July, but it’s November.  This would be fine if my apartment complex hadn’t switched over from AC to heat three weeks ago.  My room is sauna-fying as we speak.  I think it’s making the cats sleepy.  Anyway, let’s just get to the random thoughts.

Now that I’m blogging again (for the time being), I’m trying to figure out what it is I want to blog about.  The only thing I am certain of is that I want to have another hot celebrity draft.  I can’t really call it the second annual hot girl draft because technically we still have 2 or 3 months to go until its been a full year since the last one.  That being said, 9 or 10 months is an eternity in the world of attractive female celebrities and I think it is long overdue.  I imagine the participants in the first draft will be back.  Maybe Jeff will even decide to draft someone other than Brittney Spears.  I think 8 would be a nice round number for drafters, which means there are two spots open.  Shoot me an email or reply in the comments if you are interested in drafting with us.

My computer finally died last week.  I have commandeered my girlfriend’s computer for the time being, but updates may be sporadic until my technology situation gets a bit more stable.  I’m definitely switching to a Mac.  Why?  Oh let me count the reasons.  Macs are less susceptible to viruses.  I don’t hear any of my friends with Macs discussing the 18 different virus scanners they need to use to protect their computers.  If my Mac breaks I can bring it to the apple store instead of having a Dell customer service rep give me a list of tools I will need for him to walk me through the process of opening my computer to troubleshoot whatever issues I might have (well no, kind sir, I do not own 6 different kinds of screw drivers.  Can’t I just send it to you to fix?  Not until we spend the next 5 hours trying to troubleshoot the problem?….great).

Hey, did you hear the Yankees won the World Series?

They did, and it was amazing.  I remember last year around this time I wrote a post asking whether CC plus Tex would equal a world series win.  Most people bashed CC for being fat and Tex for being a jerk. Sweet sweet victory says otherwise.  What a great team and a great series.

Honestly, can you imagine how intolerable the already intolerable Phillies fans would have been if they had won a second straight World Series?  It would have been terrible.  You should be thanking the Yankees.

I know the formatting for that last part is going to be messed up.  I’ll fix it later, maybe.

We are getting to that part of the sports year where I begin to live and die based on my fantasy sports teams because of how wretched my real life sports teams are playing.  The New York Knicks are 1-9 (!) and I am slowly starting to realize that the chances of the Knicks landing Lebron are shrinking by the day.  No no no, that doesn’t mean he is staying in Cleveland, just that he won’t play for the Knicks.  I bet they end up getting Chris Bosh.  The perennially underachieving New York Rangers look primed for another 5 or 6 seed and first round playoff exit.  The San Francisco 49ers are 4-5 and will probably finish something like 8-8, which is the NFL equivalent of kissing your sister.  The Notre Dame Fighting Irish, squandering talent since as long as I can remember.  My GW Colonials will probably finish in the bottom 3 or 4 of the A-10.  Honestly, there is nothing for me to love.

Fortunately my fantasy sports teams are alive and kicking.  This deserves its own post.

I’ve got MTV Cribs on in the background, and Aubrey O’Day from the band formerly known as Danity Kane just showed us her pad.  She might be the stupidest sort of celebrity in existence today.  I’d wager a lot of money that we see her on Dr. Drew’s Celebrity Rehab within the next 2 or 3 years.

That’s about all I’ve got for now.  Happy Monday everyone.
