Something's in the Air

Something is in the air. Up here in the arctic desert, it looks like we are in the midst of a nuclear storm. The sun is eerily masked by thick snow clouds. There is at least 8 inches of snow on the ground, blown in odd shaped snowdrifts. There are wild dogs/wolves running around the neighborhood in circles in sub-zero temperatures. Instead of tumbleweed, entire pine trees are blowing down the deserted streets and sidewalks. Mad Max just rode by on his motorcycle.

All of this comes after I proclaim "Pats Year Round" last night and they end up losing to the 2-11 Dolphins on Monday Night Football. Tom Brady throws four interceptions. The Pats, previously 19-1 since 2001 in games decided by 7 points or less, turn the ball over with less than two minutes to play. Tom Brady throws four interceptions and doesn't lead them on a game winning drive at the end. Traditionally, the Dolphins visit to Foxboro in December has been part of their annual collapse on their way to a first round playoff loss. For the first time in years the Pats go to Miami in December....and lose.

Additionally, the Red Sox traded Dave Roberts to the Padres for Jay Payton and Ramon Vazquez. This was done solely to make me irate, as I have a huge issue with Jay Payton. Break up the championship team even more for an anemic centerfielder. I'm not even going to get into it, but for fun, have a look at his head!

I'll have more fun stuff later, maybe some photos and some "would you rathers?".

Would you rather:

Walk into a dark room and have intimate doggy-style relations with jessica alba, having never really seen her naked or felt anything except her backside,


get a HJ from alba in the quasi-light, and get to finagle her a bit?

Time limit with both scenarios: 6 minutes

Wow, Retired at 25 taking a more PG-13 route. Interesting.

This is difficult. For one, reaching 6 minutes would be an absolute milestone so that is tempting. Also, I've never been a huge Alba fan, so if I didn't have to see her face or brown hair in the dark, I'd be cool with it. On the other hand I am a huge fan of the handy, possibly the only male above age 14 who is, so that too would be tough to pass up.

In the end, the milestone time achievement trumps adolescent desires.
