Andy sent me this picture from a vacation of his. I love it when people can't read (though I wonder somewhat why the sign is in English). If you're interested, you too can Visit Malta.

I watch the same TV shows as Steve. Namely, West Wing. I miss Sorkin. This season, though it's not tanking, is relying on cheap drama instead of the intense, thoughtful drama of the Sorkin days. Oh well.
I didn't even know that the Matrix 3 was out today. That almost nobody I know knew it either illustrates just how poorly the Matrix 2 was received. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem that 3 is any better: Just came from one of the first showings of Matrix: Revolutions (Germany, don't know why, but it started [...]
The Rams beat the Steelers today in a game exemplified by a weak offense, a weak secondary, and a glimmer of hope. A dash of stupid, lame penalties, and a loss for the 1000th Steeler game, and I may just be done writing about the season. Effectively, it should have ended today. Oddly, though, it [...]
Not only has Fastlane crashed, but it seems that Mr. Sterling is done for as well. Oh well. At least I've still got West Wing. A Sorkin-less West Wing, but a West Wing nonetheless.
The Republican Party sent me a survey. Some of the questions are posted here: Do you support President Bush's tax plan recently passed by Congress to create more jobs and improve the economy? Should small business be encouraged to grow and hire more workers? Do you support President Bush's initiative to allow private religious and [...]
And so our anemic offense costs us a game once again. Six points off of three turnovers. A dropped interception at the end, some soft play, and some lame penalties. That's all she wrote. It was a good game, and the Steelers defense really played well. The offense was horrible. Tommy was cautious - and [...]
The shine is off of Tommy Maddox. Several bad decisions, several bad throws, and a completely absent running game left the Steelers not in Steel Town this evening, but in Shit Town. Everywhere you looked, the Steelers looked pathetic. The offensive line couldn't hold off a four-man rush. Zereoue couldn't hit a hole without trying [...]
Nearly two weeks ago I won an eBay auction for a GPS. I promptly paid - within minutes of the auction closing - plus $18 for USPS priority shipping and $5 for insurance. Today, my money was refunded to me. On the 23rd, my item was shipped. The shipper/seller did not provide a tracking number [...]
Someone called me today offering me a chance to win something if I did something. I said "yeah, I'm on the National Do Not Call list, and that started today, so you can be fined." I got the phone number and headed off to the "How to File a Complaint" page at donotcall.gov. Unfortunately, that [...]
Football is a game of numbers, and this one can be summarized pretty easily: Tenn Pitt First Downs: 9 25 Time of Poss: 24:10 35:50 Plays: 39 75 Rushing Yards: 40 69 Passing Yards: 158 307 I've left one off, and it's the most important: Interceptions: 0 2 Tommy Maddox was off today.

Ed and The West Wing premiered this evening. I didn't like either. Ed - what are they going to do now that Ed and Carol are together? The whole damn show was about how they were meant to be together but couldn't be. Now (next week) they're throwing potato chip bags at each other and [...]
Ahh, the Bungles. Regardless of their record over the past, oh, since whenever the hell Boomer Esiason retired, the Bungles typically put up a pretty good show against the Steelers. Today was not a day for that show. Today was a day for Steeler football a bit like the way it used to be: 138 [...]
From the 20 Questions site: You win, but the computer did guess it eventually You were thinking of a computer mouse. Is it a common household object? You said No, I say Yes. Does it bring joy to people? You said No, I say Yes. Would you use it in the dark? You said Irrelevant, [...]
Survivor - the original, the most truthful, the best - is back, and so are my weekly updates. I debated not doing them, but I get a kick out of them, and I don't care if anyone reads them. Besides, I know people will, and I enjoy the discourse. So one tribe this year is [...]
