And just like that it's Friday. My first week in I don't know how long of five posts in five days. Hope to keep it up.
In book news, I've got today and tomorrow (before Sunday and big 30) to take my paper edits of the "polished draft" (which I finished with a couple days ago so, in essence, the book is done), into the "Final" Word document. I'm on page 261 of 490, just came across a page covered with strike-throughs and add-ons, and I thought, "I'd rather put up a blog than get into this right now." This is classic procrastinator's thinking, but I'm a slave to it. Entering changes into a Word document is about as tedious as it gets, but book ain't really done 'till I do it.
Anyway, saw this on Drudge, got kinda T.O'd about it (you can imagine me saying that in the voice of Kip from "Napoleon Dynamite"), and I thought I'd share. The general manager of Cartoon Network was forced to resign over that bullshit Boston "terrorism" scare a week or so back. The one with the battery-operated Lite Brite boxes featuring the big Mooninite from Aqua Teen Hunger Force? Here's a link to his announcement letter. How terrible is that? You have a very cool job, you authorize a hip, viral kind of marketing campaign to get the word out about your product, and then some retards in Boston cause a panic over Lite Brites, and because the political climate is such that there's nothing funny about terrorism, even when there's none in sight, heads have to roll, but none of them can belong to Boston city officials. Ridiculous. I hope the guy lands on his feet. It's one thing to have to quit or resign because of an honest-to-God screw up, but to lose your job over something like this? Having to listen to SOBs lie about what happened, and call it a "hoax", when it was nothing of the sort? Kinda hard to take.
Anyway, blogger and nouveau-Kiwi Mike Moran has a good post up about the original incident from a diehard Beantown resident's point of view. He knows these people. You can check it out here.
All right, that's it for me. Have a good weekend.
