Personal blog entries now here. Blogger Boobie-Thon moved here.
Want a new view? You're not stuck with this design -- skin the site!

D'oh! I guess it's somewhat fitting that I just accidentally left my own 25,000th comment at ATPTB -- because hey, when it's replying about Chrissy Smith, and making fun of the 'whorns, it can't be all bad! So I'll just have to give the honors out to Kevin instead, who was theeeees close at #24,999 (and also at #25,001). Thanks to everyone who has never been afraid to say 'hi'! Keep 'em comin'...

Are you ready for some foooooootball?
If you've ever wondered just what kind of stupid, idiotic rabid Bucs fans we are -- yes, we are up for the live telecast from Tokyo, Japan, as the Bucs take on the Jets in pre-season play.

Bars across the Tampa Bay area are open this Christmas Kick-Off morning. But we're at least being sensible and watching from the comfort of our own bed...

Bring. It. ON!    Click more for final score.

UPDATE: The Bucs defeated the Jets 30-14. Congrats guys!

I love the 80s
Something tells me that toy companies are starting to realize that Gen X'ers have children now... Go here and here for a longer walk down memory lane.

Every girl's crazy 'bout a sharp dressed man
This week's "Today Throws a Wedding" selections are pretty boring -- the tuxes. I think choice #2 goes best with the bridesmaids gowns, so it's what I picked. My selection won last week though in the invitation category. The monographed invites were chosen.

Paging Dr. Whang. Dr. Dick Whang.
Talk about the perfect name for your profession... There is a specialist in the Tampa Bay area that we saw on the news this afternoon. His name? Dr. Cockburn. His specialty? Urology and vasectomies. I kid you not. You just can't make this stuff up.

The Sooner Schooner

The Florida Gators shouldn't feel too bad -- it can happen to anyone. Take the University of Oklahoma for example... (Link courtesy of FARK.com.)

So I predicted "and they said it wouldn't last" way back in March 2002... (By now I'm sure you've all heard that Liza Minnelli and David Gest have split.) I know, I know. I was too shaken this weekend to even blog about it. Well new reports are suggesting the divorce battle is gonna get ugly -- and I don't think we're just talking close-up photographs of the pair either. So pull up a chair. I've got the popcorn!

Smells like Teen Spirit
Just can't get enough of smelling like celebs? Now we have J. Lo, the Sequel -- "Still Jennifer Lopez". She seems to think she's Marilyn-esque in the new ad campaign. I...think not. I am amused, however, that Coty seems to be releasing all of the 'high-end' celebrity fragrances now. Because we all know nothing says high class and sophistication like a bottle of Coty Wild Musk from Tarjhét!

Stuck in the middle with you
A new movie is coming out just for Statia! I am so there.

Would you care for a suckle of my zipple?

Think about direction - wonder why you haven't before
My horoscope today couldn't be more perfect for things I'm currently witnessing in another area of my online life:

You are likely to have independent views about everything, ROBYN, and people would be wrong to try to box you into thinking a certain way. Don't let others convince you to accept something that you are skeptical of. Deep down inside, you know exactly what you believe in, so don't be afraid to express these thoughts, even if they go entirely against the grain of the situation at hand. Independence is important to you, and you may go to great lengths to make sure that others feel this freedom that you know is so critical to a healthy lifestyle. [link]

Quite frankly, now I'm really glad I've taken a stand.

So you'd better treat 'er right
I had a couple of new designs launch this past week -- West Indies Cricket Blog and HotLiberty.com (currently empty, optimized for 800x600 by request). Both Ryan and Jeff should be sainted for their patience -- it's been a bumpy summer. I've probably neglected to mention a few other new "connect the dots" and Sekimori Designs over the past few weeks as well, so you can always be nosey and snoop through the portfolio. New designs have a pink star by 'em...

UPDATE: I forgot to mention that the Suncoast Sooners site has been updated for the 2003 OU football season. Let's get ready to ruuuuuuumble!

This could devastate my reputation as a dude
Michele has had a series of blogger "then and now" photos going during the Blogathon -- her theme has been pop culture from the 60s, 70s and 80s.

I just found her the perfect photo. It was taken circa Christmas 1985. Yes, that's me sporting a bitchin' pair of parachute pants with neon-pink zipper inserts. And of course you can't forget the Duran Duran-esque chauffeur's cap and skinny black leather tie. Always a slave to fashion, I am...

It's the "little" things

Apparently I'm now #1 in Yahoo! and Google for "fat Oklahoma fan". Follow your dreams. You can reach your goals. I'm living proof. Beefcake. BEEFCAKE!
