First, I want you to go to the Jedi Temple

Currently, I'm watching ROTS on Spike in HD. This reminds me of a simple comment that my good mormon friend Cameron once made - it's more fun to watch SW on TV. I'm not sure why the commercial breaks enhance the experience, but it's difficult for me to turn off any Star Wars Film (even AOTC) if it's on TV. Even Spike. The whole HD aspect is also enticing. I just watch the Jedi try to arrest Palpatine. In my opinion, that's probably the high point of the PT. I love watching the Emperor unleash all this pent up jediphobia on Mace and the awkward Jedi Posse.

I haven't written in a while, manly because I'm far too lazy to do much beside my job during the school year. Also, most of the things on my mind are not fit to print. Don't take that the wrong way.

Even though I'm a democrat in name, I can't stomach more than about 34 seconds of the DNC before I want to smash my head against the closest solid object. I heard this one douche talking about "creating an army of new teachers" and it was difficult for me to resist the urge to shove a wiimote into my eye.

Truth be told, I've seen/read too much at this point to call myself a legitimate member of the democratic party. They are far too conservative for my tastes. And no, I don't think Obama is the messiah. And no, I'm not voting for McCain. How can anyone vote for McCain? Then again, I thought the same thing about Bush and he ended up with two turns. This is well timed as Palpatine is currently on Spike TV declaring himself emperor.

Anyhow, my students this year are presenting a particular challenge for me. Just one class, actually. None of my Jedi mind tricks are working on them. They won't stop talking. And it makes me want to give up. I'm used to dominating a class and breaking its will. This one is a wild bunch.

Olive Garden has the worst commercials.

Mountain Dew is not a soda, it's a beverage. And it's the ultimate beverage.

The Dodgers are doing that thing again where they won't score any runs. Derek Lowe had a complete-game loss today, even though he only gave up two runs. Yesterday they tied a 80 year-old record by getting 13 hits without scoring a run. Their RISP is around .100

That new movie where Sam Jackson is a scary cop neighbor looks awesome. I'm a sucker for that man.

Ewan McGregor's career was ended by the SW films.

Hayden is in a new teen movie about virgins. There's a joke there, but I'll let you formulate it yourself.

The force unleashed demo makes you feel like a virgin.

Fallout 3 is going to consume my life quite soon.

Madden '09 is too hard.

I'm tired of being treated like a kid by my co-workers. I'm THIRTY!!!

My fantasy football draft didn't go as planned. It never does.

Fuck, ROTS looks so good in HD.

Roger, roger.
