get them a hot cup of coffee. some research showed that a warm cup of coffee made people more friendly while a cold cup of coffee made them more stand-offish. i think that the results could have been skewed more if they served peet’s coffee instead of the control batch of folgers they probably used. this article could also serve as a hint that the author of this post and overall editorial director of this website also enjoys peet’s coffee. hint. [la times]
even our good boy gavin newsom endorses peet’s. what more reason do you need?

while you enjoy the warm weather this weekend, i will be moving. consider that when something doesn’t go your way, you can say, ‘well at least i’m not moving’.
-zombiecon 2008 in new york features a parade of zombies heading down wall street. imagine visiting new york from a foreign country and stumbling across that mass of people [ibored]
-utah public school district has a website where a student can anonymously report bullies at their school. i can see this being manipulated pretty good about someone you don’t like. [cnn]
-military reservist called to action in kuwait has to tend his yard back home in seattle or his hoa will file a lawsuit for not maintaining his lawn [seattle times]
-awesome story exposing mccain for who he really is – a rickety old man who finished in the bottom 2% of his class at annapolis and rode the coattails of his admiral father to rise up in the military [rolling stone]
-a robber posted an ad on craigslist to invite people to dress up a certain way and show up at a spot within the city, faking a casting call for a movie. he then robbed a nearby bank and escaped to that spot and the police lost track of him because there were dozens of men dressed exactly the same at that spot.

do you want old fart mccain or obamawesome!?
marcos is in the timeout chair. he looks like he is remorseful about whatever he did.
and here he is trying to make up for whatever he did by pumping some milk for his baby brother:

the city in ohio was not mentioned where this rally took place, but it does scare me about how the rest of the country sees barack obama:
“Someone stole our Obama for President sign from our yard last night. They stole nearly all the Obama signs in our neighborhood. The ones they didn’t take they spray-painted black. So I made this sign today and staked it in the yard. I fully expect it to be trashed by morning. At least they know the result of their pranks: we give more money to Obama’s campaign.”

gotta love the headlines on newspapers.
some good bits to ponder as you plan the upcoming weekend. anytime after noon on wednesdays is already heading downhill towards the weekend!
-no joke about what a typical sarah palin supporter looks like [popcrunch]
-keep detailed records of the electronic items you bring through tsa security checkpoints. this guy took over $200k of passengers goods [gizmodo]
-too big to bring to school for show-and-tell, you’d have to bring the kids to the house to see this 20-foot-long warship [brothers-brick]
-i could feel the bloodflow concentrate in the middle of my body as i saw all the things you can wrap bacon around [divine caroline]
-fbi sting operation nets crooks and thieves involved with credit card laundering schemes and identity theft action [wired]
rolling stone puts at #201 in the worlds top 500 songs of all time, but i would remove the 20 and make it my favorite of all time. the frente remake only adds to the appeal.
marcos wearing his halloween costume home from the store…maybe with a modest snore like daddy.
already on a reduced posting schedule because of new baby action, we’re also getting ready to move houses (again!). the lady that owns the house we’re renting wants to move back in. not a big deal because we were able to find a nearby house that is a little nicer for a little more money. i just hate moving more than anything else in the world.
excuse the pity party – enjoy the links instead:
-cool xrays of interesting injuries. safe for work and safe for sensitive stomachs, even the still-on vibrator that has penetrated the colon. [flickr]
-we don’t have a dvd player, so i can’t say if this is what happens but maybe some of the homebodies can tell me [fellasleepwatchingadvd]
-without using these exact terms and shapes/colors of the participants, this sounds eerily familiar among people that i know. i personally don’t find frame 3 funny with the farting guy. [mingle2]
-beneath the fancy-dancy exteriors, there’s a huge slave trade in abu dhabi that is responsible for erecting these huge buildings. complaining about living in the irvington district of fremont seems comparatively trivial [guardian.co.uk]
-garage chemistry tinkering as kids was a rite of passage. now it will land you on an atf watchlist [wired]
-where was this when i was small enough to have someone else in the shower with me? [popgive]
still one of the best songs of all-time. we practiced for months days on playing guitars when we were younger thinking that it would be the ticket to land hot chicks. i will no doubt be having my boys start the guitar lessons early so their lives will be richer by having hot chicks submit themselves.
i wouldn’t even give palin credit for being thomas the train – maybe more like the troublesome trucks?
im so anxious for the day to pass away so i can watch joe biden just absolutely destroy that puppet sarah palin tonight during their debates. the only good thing about sarah palin being involved in this election is that there is so much to make fun of and laugh at. and, i suppose, seeing tina fey again on snl.
this is what jack cafferty thinks of her. his comments start at the 1:35 mark.
this comes after couric asks her what books and magazines she reads. she did not/could not name a single named source she reads regularly. maybe she was embarrassed to admit that it’s just the cookie lee catalog.
