Michael's Shower: Why post?

I often wonder how good of friends they are. I wonder if they are just being nicer than the next person.

Awesome farm site

I wish I could be a farmer at times like my friend Brandon Foote.

Michael's Shower: 3 pounds of chocolate

I find that if I don't buy sweets, I don eat them.... all. I bought some Hershey miniatures to replace what I took from work. I can believe I ate most of them.

International Court of Justice

I always wondered about International Law.

Schneier on Security: Talking to Strangers

I totally agree.

See: Schneier on Security: Talking to Strangers: "I think 'don't talk to strangers' is just about the worst possible advice you can give a child."

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire Movie

I think I'll start listening to the books again.

See: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire Movie Info - Yahoo! Movies: "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Nov. 2005)"

Good shows

Some of these Category:Disney television series, I still might watch today.

1983-84 American network television schedule

Hulk Movie

I tried watching some of the Hulk this morning. It was hard to follow without fast forwarding. It was irritating the split screen/ multi camera scenes.

The Cohen Group

I just learned a friend works for the The Cohen Group.

The Work and the Glory

The Work and the Glory is a good show. I watched it the other day.

Dreyer and Edy

This Word document talks about William Dreyer and Joseph Edy, Grand Ave., Rocky Road, and Nestle.

In honor of both founders, the company’s premium products are marketed under the Dreyer’s brand throughout the western states and the Edy’s brand throughout the remainder of the United States. Internationally, the Dreyer’s brand extends to select markets in the Far East and the Edy’s brand to the Caribbean and South America."

Plant Guide: Heliotrope

I thought Pixar made up the word Heliotrope because it rhymed with nope. (See Boundin' short)

Kraft Foods Inc. - Newsroom

When looking for information on Kraft and Philip Morris I found the article linked below. I guess they want to get away from a negative connotation of the cigarette company.

I'm not sure where I learned about Kraft and the sin/cancer stick makers.

See: Kraft Foods Inc. - Newsroom: "Altria Group, Inc. is the new name of the parent company of Kraft Foods Inc., Philip Morris International Inc. and Philip Morris USA. Inc. "

ASA flight

I had an About ASA flight from Salt Lake City, UT to Minneapolis, MN. I thought it was cool to go on the ground floor of the airport where the planes are... Just like in the movies or history films, I got on the plane via a stair case on the plane's door.

Mickey's Twice Upon a Christmas

Mickey's Twice Upon a Christmas DVD Review: "Two different computer animation production companies worked on animation for this DisneyToon Studios feature."

Which two? Luxo says "Disney recently announced its plans to build a new animation studio to create feature film sequels to hits it made with Pixar..."

I thought this show was the debut of 3-D computer animation for Disney's new studio. You know, like a proof of concept project, so they can do Toy Story 3.

Michael's Shower: Long day II (short)

I had to remove a post because of my surprise birthday party. I was venting, and if the post was found, it just would not be all that great.

Removal or editing is against my policy. History can not be altered and any record of mine, probably should not to give a fair view of myself...

Jedi: Information From Answers.com

I think I learned more about the Jedi and Star Wars beyond the Zahn books than I ever wanted.

Life, Liberty, and Property: Kerry vs. Bush

Young Kerry looks like Elder Rudd from my mission. I thought his real name should be Pudd, or Dudd... He was a punk in my opinion.

Michael's Shower: Marriage is not a group activity

The other week, I was told that my friendship was valued. I have been trying to measure that value. I think she was just being nice, like everyone else. We almost never talk. I think I get more air time on her answering machine than I do with her.

I was told that I should do a group activity, then she might show... The second I heard that, I wanted to raise the middle finger and say "group this!"

Michael's Shower: Freaky Friday

It's almost been like Freaky Friday. I've had to calm down...

I really hate when my plans have to get modified. I often wish I was a CO of sorts and my command would get executed exactly as I want. Again, if I could drive none of these issues would be a problem: people would not get in the way, I would not get so upset....

What really gets me is the lack of communication. Most often, I do not get notified. I have to query for information, even when I ask to be notified. I'm on nobody's priority list....

Konami Code: Information From Answers.com

Awesome! I was looking up Contra when I found the secret code for extra lives.

A poor wayfaring man of grief: Hymns: Kirtland Temple

Last Sunday was great for several reasons. When we sang A poor wayfaring man of grief, I got all choked up that I could not sing.

Michael's Shower: Where are you Christmas?

I just learned Melanie Carter got married a few months ago.

Mike Baird

I knew a Mike Baird, not this guy but a kid from junior high. I bought Rygar from him. Listen to the theme song. He died in a motor cycle accident in high school.

I knew another Mike Baird. He was some kind of eye doctor at ShopKo.

Small world or too many Mike Bairds?

Billions Wasted on Anti-Terrorism Security

Have I not been saying this for ever now? Too bad I did not have a blog site when the department was created.

I recently saw the 80 minute commercial for the ride called the Haunted Mansion.

FOX Broadcasting Company: 24

Season 5 for 24? I almost finished with the first season. I saw the end of the 4th... Is it worth watching the rest? Maybe when my Netflix queue gets down to 100.


Yesterday, some guy was very vocal during the review of Hinkley's talk. I wonder if it is hard for him to quit gambling. To me, it sounded like he wanted to justify a bunch of things. One of which was an argument about stocks or insurance.

I think it is pretty clear in the definition bellow.

Gambling: "Gambling is simply a process that takes money and does not offer a fair return in goods or services. "

Dance dance revolution

I tried playing Dance dance revolution. It was not something I want to admit to, but too late. My niece would love it.
