With your Gilmore Girls update

So, I watched the season premiere of Gilmore Girls with my wife. That right there is enough to have my guy card revoked. It's one of those "couple things" that we do. She really likes the show (and even had me make dinner so she wouldn't miss the first part) and I have to admit that it was funny and well-done, and I think it's hitting the level of "guilty pleasure" in my life.

Weekly Gilmore Girls update:

Maybe not.

This week's theme:

Here's to Adult Swim for capitalizing on college students and 20-somethings who want to relive the 80s.

Voltron gets served.

On to the news:

Ever want to break up with someone, but just couldn't bring yourself to do it
(Hey sweetie...)

Thong-wearing, knife wielding burglar videotapes himself commiting crime
(Ah, the YouTube generation)

When they say you owe your firstborn, they aren't kidding
(He didn't notice?)

First sentence: A dispute that began over the capture of an opossum in a residential neighborhood ended with police shooting a Rottweiler and arresting a man after stunning him with a Taser gun.
(I don't write them, I just report them.)

Bright, shiny objects:

Elephant, artist, or pre-schooler
(This is dedicated to Bob, my high school intro to the arts teacher. It's just a stick.)

Hanukhah Hey Ya!
(I found a version more disturbing than the German country band cover)

Today's Random "Next Blog":

Topics in Early Childhood Education
(A nice mix of personal stories and facts about kids.)

Today's Weird Anniversary:

September 27, 1881 -- The Chicago Cubs beat Troy 10-8 in a game watched by only 12 people. Yesterday, the Cubs beat the Brewers 14-6, and I imagine that about 12 people actually watched the game itself then too.

Fun Fact of the Day:

The longest common English word that can be typed using only the left hand (using conventional hand placement) is stewardesses. The longest English word that can be typed with the right hand only (using conventional hand placement) is polyphony.

And finally:

Because I can... enjoy.

If you wanted to break up, you could also just send a few social diseases from

And this week's GG kinda sucked. It used to be better.

Dinner was good, though! And I didn't HAVE you make it -- stop lying! You offered.
