Just a follow-up from a previous blog entry: DATA has compiled a daily log of the Heart of America tour with Bono, Ashley Judd and friends for AIDS relief in Africa.

Ridiculous. Those silly British housewives.

Had a great weekend watching playoff football (Packers lost WOO) and eating large amounts of food. I'm actually progressing along with completing the grad school apps. I'm picking up my transcripts this Friday, which means Friday night will be a GREAT time to go hit the pubs.

Quiet week ahead. The part-time position with my old staffworker fell through. Oh well. Can't get mad at him, his wife is going to do the work I was, and besides he's writing a grad school reference for me. Heading down to Chinatown for dimsum today.

Jack Ass Sues Over 'Jackass' TV Show
The best part being that he changed his name to "raise awareness about the dangers of drunk driving." Ohhhh-kay.

Houston Named Fattest City
Although I'd put money on Wisconsin being the fattest state, per capita.

The New Years' retreat/reunion was great. Not only just to see friends I love but also to be spiritually rejunevated again, heading into a new year. Even tho I had to leave in the middle of it to go take the GRE (I did well enough). Those people, my Catholic community of friends, do so much to motivate to be a better person without saying a word; just being around them is enough.

Check out Hopefully it's not all talk.

I'm having a difficult time tracking down a copy of Tolkien's The Silmarillion at a Barnes&Noble. It'd be nice to use my new B&N giftcard so I don't have to spend the $. I've already checked out 4 B&Ns near me. I wonder if they're sold out or out of print.
