Redwings keeping it real.

yeah, its early

  • Red Wings shut-out Penguins for a second game. I currently do not have cable, and was thus unable to watch said game. I am quite perturbed about this.
  • The world is coming to a swift, decisive end. I have body armor and a gun, though, so back off. Zombies, prepare to meet your maker.
  • The NY Times calls it Burma; AP calls it Myanmar. NY Times calls it Myanmar. As far as I understand it, Myanmar is the more formal name of the two, and that the r‘s in both of them are English-language bastardizations (which is fine by me, actually). I’d just like to see some consensus on it in the news.

I’m going to be one happy guy when Detroit pummels the Penguins in the play-offs.

Just saying.

Thursday noon-time circus post

Thursday, May 15th, 2008

“Focus your homeostasis.” Blurted by some girl Tuesday night. In retrospect, I’m not sure what the inside joke was about but I took it to mean something like “keep your balance, drunkard.” Speaking of interesting phrases, Language Log posted about it today. Having done my fair share of cut-ups to create fiction, I’ve encountered some very strange phrases that just made me warm and fuzzy.

I’m tempted to pick up the new James Frey novel, but I’m being more or less dissuaded by the fifty-fifty reviews it’s getting.

And finally, one of the most interesting reads to cross my feed reader: Slate’s special issue on procrastinating: Just Don’t Do It. Indeed.

Oh yeah, I watched the Redwings game last night; I am very disappointed. The referees were just making poor calls all night, and unlike football the coaches can’t call for a review. Osgood was just not playing very well, though, to be honest. Hopefully, I’ll be able to catch game 5; I rarely have either the channel or the time.
