i like how they mention she is a preschool teacher at the END of the article

Police: Woman Chases Kids With Samurai Sword

"Amanda Jane Darling Harris, 21, allegedly chased the children, aged 9 to 15, with an 18-inch samurai sword because they were playing in a parking lot of the Villa apartments, according to a police report...

Harris was arrested in her third-floor apartment on suspicion of menacing -- use of a deadly weapon, misdemeanor third-degree assault with a weapon, ethnic intimidation and harassment.

Harris is employed by Pooh Corner Preschool in Minturn, Colo., according to the arrest report. A spokeswoman for the preschool said she couldn't comment on Harris' current employment status."

Alabama kicks a field goal to go up 23-20 in Overtime. Mike Patrick has something to say. Todd Blackledge is baffled.

MP: "I have an important question. What is Britney doing with her life?"
TB: "Who?"
MP: "Britney!"
TB: "...Britney who?"
MP: "Spears! What is she doing with her career?"
TB: "Why do we care at this point?...Is she here?"
MP: "I don't think so."
TB: "Is she a football fan?"
MP: "Oh I'm sure she is." [two seconds pass] "Georgia from the 25."

i love the coreys

the understated glory of bill pullman

today, while on the treadmill at the gym, i managed to catch the end of a league of their own. i do love that movie. tom hanks is brilliant in it. (has anyone ever told you that you look like a penis with a little hat on?)

anyway, i had completely forgotten that bill pullman was in that movie. in fact, i had completely forgotten about bill pullman in general. as an actor, his film choices puzzle me. he can go from movies like lost highway to casper the friendly ghost. i love that. here are some of my pullman favs....

Scary Movie 4
The Grudge
Igby Goes Down
Independence Day
Lost Highway
Mr. Wrong
While You Were Sleeping
Sleepless in Seattle
A League of Their Own

blah blah blah britney spears blah blah train wreck blah blah blah SHES A HUMAN blah blah blah hilariousness

the single "gimme more" is growing on me. DEAR GOD WHY????

it has potential. i want someone to remix the shit out of it. in fact, im about to bring out frooty loops and go to town. i'd like to pose a challenge to the music nerds out there... remix this shit into awesomeness. (bonus points for use of a vocoder.)

here's one remix.

decisions decisions

although i do feel an overwhelming sense of regret, i'm not sure if i just made a good decision or a bad decision. it feels bad though. very bad. awful actually.

i love your smile

dude, who remembers shanice?

name that tune

i've recently started playing this game called "The Tone Deaf Challenge" at a local bar. basically it's like playing "name that tune," but with teams and lightning rounds. they play the first few bars of a song, and you have to guess what it is.

last night, they played "you + me = us" by that mtv band 2gether... and i just could NOT remember the name of the band. i'm still ticked. i should have know that shit! we were a little boy band crazy in high school.

a secret

sometimes when i'm homesick for buffalo, i listen to the goo goo dolls. they're not my favorite band and i wouldn't exactly call myself a fan. but, the goo goo dolls are as buffalo as chicken wings, anderson's, labatt blue and snow. and right now i miss home. so here's black balloon.

forest union

this weekend i am heading off to nyc for a wedding. technically, i don't think it is a wedding. it is more of a commitment ceremony. instead of an exchange of rings, a priest or any of that jazz, my friends will be having a tree planting ceremony. i'm intrigued. there also will be lots of vegans and badminton. holla.

i will be sharing a date with my best friend from high school. so if anyone wants to be my real date, let me know. (preference goes to vegans or killer badminton partners.)

this weekend while unpacking my things in the new digs, i found my yiayia's recipe for Koulourakia, a type of greek cookie with sesame seeds. for as long as i can remember, my yiayia has had tupperware containers filled with these cookies stashed in a corner of the dining room. i haven't had one of these in years, so this week i plan to make them!
