2 Rambling Posts in 1 Week!?

I know that everyone is breathlessly awaiting my Transformer's review. Well, you know what-me too. I'd love to have that already written. After all, I now have to write up a review for The Last Mimsy.

Go me.

Anyways, I took a bit of time out of my obscene work schedule to watch The Last Mimsy with the family on Tuesday, which means I didn't get to watch Eureka when it came on at 8pm. That's not a problem I thought to myself, I can catch it during the repeat at 11.

That's all and good, and I even remember checking the clock on my PC at 10:43 to see how much time I had before the show started. I can bet that pretty much everyone knows where I'm going with this. I checked the clock at 10:43 and then went back to work. The next time I looked at those little bitty digits, the time happily read 12:34.


Times like that, I wished I cursed. I'd have a few choice words to say about Software Requirements.

Well not really, but you get the idea.

So, I managed to miss the season premier of the television series that I had actually been looking forward to. Alas, at least cable networks like to repeat things until you're sick of them. Though come to think about it, we didn't really see any Eureka during quarters 1 and 2 of 2007.

Oh well, my final tidbit of pointless trivia which happened to flicker across my awareness this morning on my way into work involves the radio. Specifically, a Brad Paisley song entitled Online.

Here's the opening verse (click here for the rest of the lyrics):

I work down at the Pizza Pit
And I drive an old Hyundai
I still live with my mom and dad
I'm 5 foot 3 and overweight
I'm a scifi fanatic
A mild asthmatic
And I've never been to second base
But there's whole ‘nother me
That you need to see
Go checkout MySpace

I'm sure my wife will be highly amused by it. I can admit it as well, I'm amused by it. Mr. Paisley has a tendency to write wonderfully amusing lyrics, and then he writes things like Ticks.
