This is an Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione. It’s…beautiful. Breathtakingly beautiful.
I don’t want to put a Nascar driver in it. Or pretend like I’m one. Or mess around with oil and wrenches under it’s hood.
But I do want to drive one. On a quiet and curvy road somewhere. Listening to the engine, squeal of the tires and wind screaming by.

Happy Valentines/Single-awareness Day!

I’m enjoying the artificially manufactured importance of this day. And what a GORGEOUS day to…enjoy something…anything, really.

We’ve decided to eat all the candy we’ve been given, call in sick tomorrow and, since it’s a federal holiday Monday, enjoy a 4-day weekend.


Here’s three projectors I’ve been looking at that I think I can enjoy for a while. I’ve compared them with my buddy’s HP projector which has provided a very satisfactory experience. I think I can get one of them for 500ish. Which would you prefer?

A brother has a birthday today and this year I’m debating whether to give gifts. I have in the past and have even tried the Christmas all year round approach where I gave gifts to all my brothers on each of their birthdays. It was fun. Somehow it doesn’t seem to fit me, or us, this year. Does everyone still give gifts, even later on when childishness has been put away?

EPL February 9th and 10th

The upcoming match between Derby (20th of 20) and the Tottenham Hotspurs (11th) looks like a fun, high-scoring game for Tottenham. Derby is not only struggling to defend, but also the injury list is longer than the match roster. In addition, Tottenham’s affinity for scoring suggests it’s going to be a rough day in Derby. But entertaining for me. My call: Tottenham 5-0 over Derby.

Manchester City have a good chance against Manchester United with suspensions and injuries hurting Sir Alex’s roster. We may even see the 17 year old Danny Welbeck on the pitch for MU. Still, home game for them, so I’m sure MU will pull it out. My call: MU 1-0 over MC. But with Tevez, Giggs and Christina still in and at home, if they score 1, the floodgates may open as we’ve often seen from MU.

Liverpool’s my team. And they’re going to lost to Chelsea Sunday. Torres is out, as well as Voronin and a few others. Benayoun and Babel and Gerrard are still there, but it’s sort of like having last year’s team in…which wasn’t quite good enough. I’m sure the defense will show up and perform well for them but the Red’s have to score to win. And Chelsea’s bound to score. However much I might wish otherwise. My call: Liverpool down 1-2 to Chelsea. Nooooo!
