To add to the growing list of stuff I've learned so far in life:

I like the concept, the idea, of root beer floats more than I like actual root beer floats.






Am I the only one that thinks Been A Son, by Nirvana, off Incesticide is about Joan of Arc?

Kudos to Michael Moore for spurring the press into action (re: the Bush being a deserter issue). It's good to see them step out from wherever they've been hiding and start doing their jobs again. Check out the press briefing here. You can just read the transcript, but I recommend getting to a computer with sound and video and watching the video. Man...Scott McClellan is about to cry.

I like how you don't even have to know what something is to enjoy it, on the internet. Take this for instance. Genius! Whatever it is.



So. Last night we watched a documentary. It was called Okie Noodling. For those of you in the know..yes...that's right..fishing for giant catfish with your bare hands. AKA grabbling, hand-fishing. Only legal in 4 states. So to hand-fish, you basically go to lakes or creeks, find great big holes in the bank, under fallen trees, etc. Then, you stick your fingers in the hole and wiggle them. If there's a catfish in the hole, he'll clamp down on your fingers, and then you pull him out. I've always heard stories about it, but it was sort of folklorish to me. I've heard many a tale of people getting aholt of a big ole 200 lber and getting drowned.

I liked the movie. They never caught any monsters. They had some big ones though - 50 lbs. or so. What I really liked about the movie is that it would have been really easy to sort of mock all these people. I mean, they were easily mockable. But they didn't. They just presented the story, and that was that. Anyways. I recommend it to fisherman types. Probably not to others..unless it just sounds so weird you can't resist.

So I just realized that unless you have a giant monitor like me, this blog looks dumb. Hopefully, it's better now. There should be links on the left side that you can see without scrolling down for a half hour.
