However, I have to say this: I know it's a cool idea and all, but how can you charge $50 for a watch that doesn't actually tell time? I mean, granted it is by far the most accurate timepiece ever created, yet if it can't help me be on time for an important meeting, I'm not sure it's worth $50.

And though I'm all for a Flaming Lips musical, I hope that Sorkin makes his way back to television in the not-so-distant future. Until then, I've got the first 4 seasons of the West Wing to help me get my fix.
Long live Aaron Sorkin!

Many of you have already seen this. If you have, watch it again. It's still funny.
For those of you who haven't seen it, watch it a few times. It gets funnier every time.
(And for added amusement, check out this video with the hiker's reaction.)

(If that nickel could save a child's life, why are they sending it to me???)
And (because you just can't make this stuff up, folks)...
Please stop sending me free gifts - especially the address labels - as I would have to live at this address another 50 years to go through them all. It is a waste of your money to ask for my money. Track me down in another 30 years, after student loans are paid off and my as-of-yet-unborn children are through college and I'll be happy to give you whatever is left.
My cousin told me that the parade was pretty small - just a boombox and banner at the front, followed by a few bikes, some walking people, and perhaps a wagon or two. Well, apparently the parade grew since they last saw it, because this year it was HUGE. I swear that we must have been the only spectators, because everyone else was in the parade. There were bikes, wagons, cars, trucks, golf carts, John Deere lawnmowers, walkers, and dogs. There were even a few people who threw candy into the "crowd." pretty awesome.
Also awesome are the decorations on the unicycles and bicycle that my cousin's family rode in the parade. They are seriously awesome (both the people and the decorations).
