Another Year Over, a New One Just Begun

As I type this, ten minutes remain in 2010.

So now I actually take the time to look back at the kind of year I had.
To be honest, it wasn't much. There weren't any major life-changing events, other than the news that my sister will have her fourth child in July 2011.

Sports wise, I attended my first major collegiate hockey game, the Wisconsin/Michigan game played at Camp Randall. Despite being surrounded by two rows of drunken Michiganders who did not shut up during the game, Bucky prevailed as he should.

I went to my first Brewers game since 2007. That was a rubbish game.
I went to my second Badgers football game. That was awesome, especially the look on my three-year-old niece's face when "Jump Around" started.

TV wise, NCIS, South Park, & Top Gear were full of epic win, as always. Top Chef DC, not so much. The all-star season is showing some promise though.

Other than that, it was just another normal year. I can't guarantee whether 2011 will be better or worse, but darned if I'll not try to enjoy the ride.


A Very Merry Christmas to All!!

Some video entertainment, which has a bit of a theme. Can you guess what it is? :D



Joyeux Noel!!


The fun (yet ultimately sad thing) about Facebook is one tiny blurb can set off a crowd. Case in point: the official NCIS Page let loose the announcement regarding Bob Newhart's guest appearance, and it took less than twenty posts to start what is the apparent theme...

By the way, that reminds me of the time....Collapse )


You Say It's Your Birthday...

As of 4:45 am CST, I am offically 28 years young!! Why the hell do I feel so giddy about that?

Maybe because this song inevitably popped into my head:

 If you'll excuse me, I'm going to spend the rest of my birthday cranking up "The White Album."

Classic Turkey Day TV

If you celebrate Thanksgiving, do you have any favorite TV shows or events that you associate with this holiday? If so, why do you love them?

Two words: Turkey. Drop.

Writing....How Hard Can it Be?

Ahh, the life of a fanfic writer...especially when it comes to deadlines.

Right now, I am taking part in my first Secret Santa Challenge. (Can you guess the show? First two guesses can be tossed :P) I have until the day before my birthday to come up with some good fanfic that fits the criteria of the giftee.

I can say that it's not so much the brainstorming, it's probably going to be the actual typing, especially since I'll have to format where I want to italicize or bold stuff. But onwards I shall go...as soon as I watch tonight's episode. I hear there's some bowtie action...

Sing Along with Bucky, Dammit!!

On Wisconsin, On Wisconsin, plunge right through that line!
Run the ball clear down the field, a touchdown sure this time.
On Wisconsin, On Wisconsin, fight on for her fame!
Fight, fellows, fight, fight, fight, we'll win this game!

On Wisconsin, On Wisconsin, stand up Badgers sing!
"Forward" is our driving spirit, loyal voices ring.
On Wisconsin, On Wisconsin, raise her glowing flame.
Stand, fellows, let us now salute her name!

41 Years Ago Today...

Television and comedy were forever changed on this day in 1969...

And because I can, my favorite sketch from "Whither Canada?"

The Funniest Joke in the World.

You have been warned.

Happy Anniversary, you looneys. ALBATROSS!


Open Channel Newbie!!

And with only two-and-a-half hours to spare! LOL...
