Watched last rock for the US (1 - 8, 2 - 7) and all the commentators can talk about is the futility of the teams and their unprofessional attitude.  Give it up guys, they looked plenty serious to me, they won the Trials so they're the best damn teams in the country, AND IT'S JUST A FUCKING GAME DUDES!


Get over yourself.  We didn't win a single medal in bobsledding for over 50 years mon, and it's still exciting and fun to watch. Tomorrow's tie breaker between Great Britain and Norway may be your last chance to see the fancy pants.

Well, the only real mystery left is why the shows took these two days off (other than of course we've had nothing but snow and freezing rain in the tri-state area, with more expected tomorrow).

Tonight's repeats are both from the 12th.  I don't really have much to add besides the more reviews that come in the more convinced I am that I will never, ever watch RoboCop the remake.

Life is short and I have acres of DVR stuff I need to hash through so I can change back from ATT Uverse to cable because they've decided to jack up my payments $50 a month.

You know, that's more than I have to pay to maintain both blogs.

My other big news this weekend is that in addition to proving yet again I can start up a franchise any time I want, I got my ek'smas laptop up and running Win 7 (though I did de-crapify it a little too much and now I have to decide whether I want to just forge ahead for a while as I'm inclined to do because I'm terribly lazy, or start again from the picture I took of the unpowered drive which is really the best solution but I'd have to sit through all those updates again and that's just incredibly boring).

You know, I really do have friends and a life, they're just hard to maintain when the weather is this horrible.

I hope you all are safe, warm, and relatively sane tonight.  I've been watching a lot of Survivorman and those pine bough snowshoes and a trek away from the shelter to the coast is looking more and more attractive.  Maybe I'll just stew up a cabinmate instead.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
