welcome babyboy

sis felicia had her baby this morning, but no name for the 8lb 5oz hunk of flesh and muscle yet.

she rejected the friendly suggestion of just using ‘babyboy’ until she decides, as is common practice in the philippines.

i <3 adrian peterson

180 rushing yards and 3 touchdowns for 41 fantasy points on sunday! if adrian went to high school with us, he would definitely be the token non-asian runner in the rice bowl.

update: nfl.com doesn’t have embeddable vids (suck) but here’s a link to watch his 60-yard run [nfl.com] see update 3 below:

update2: just saw this video of adrian peterson in high school and freshman year in college. without a doubt in my mind, this brings back memories of haichau dao pham at the rice bowl

update3: i found the video of the adrian peterson run at fandome

i know i made my dad proud last night when i cleared the kitchen sink clog without resorting to calling a plumber. i’m always worried about damaging my hands somehow because they are my livelihood, but this time i came through with just a couple scratches on my right hand.

read these while i put some lotion on:

-> what life is like with beer goggles on [college humor]

-> i always had a tough time telling people about milpitas, and how to spell it. most people couldn’t figure it out so i said san jose to make it easier. for the spanish speakers, i could always default to “little cornfields” and they would get it right, but for others it was a lost cause. i’m just glad i don’t live in cities like these [blogspot]

-> maybe the bible is easier to understand when they are recreated in legos? it might help some of the kids absorb it better too [inspirational christians]

-> google street view cameras may have caught philip garrido leaving his compound in antioch – rumor has it that he was bugged out from seeing the cars with the cameras on top driving around his neighborhood [boing boing]

-> steve nash had to disguise himself when he played some pickup ball at a local park while he was in china with an official nba delegation. this kinda reminds me of how i have to play with a disguise when i play or else i’ll be mobbed from my own fans, or the police [yahoo]

-> some of the best personalized license plates [holytaco]

obama’s socialist marxist hitler speech

there’s been a lot of hubbub over obama’s speech this morning to the school children of america. right-wingers are calling it some sort of brainwash session, reminiscent of hitler programming the nazi’s and also a way for him to push his political agenda on the young and try to make them democrats for life.

As the father of four children, I am absolutely appalled that taxpayer dollars are being used to spread President Obama’s socialist ideology,” Florida GOP Chairman Jim Greer said.

it was pretty clear from the earlier announcement that it was just him greeting school kids in the new school year and emphasizing the importance of education in their lives. parents across america were going to pull their kids out of school today, in protest that the president was speaking to their children without their consent or prior approval. that has now been been derailed as of this morning, because the white house has just released the text of his entire speech. it’s exactly as i thought it would be – something pretty simple and laid back, maybe even a little inspiring.

i personally know of one person who was worried about this, so she was going to escort her daughter to school and listen to this message with her, presumably to quickly cup her daughter’s ears if she detected signs of her daughter being brainwashed. she will remain nameless, although anyone close to her will know who i am referring to.

just more scare tactics by the underinformed. this was the scene back in the 1950’s:

the nice thing is that the right-wingers are getting dumber because in the picture above, at least all the signs are spelled correctly.

mmm…chipotle breakfast

when is this coming here? any time you can integrate pork into a breakfast dish, you will be appealing to most of the men out there.

apparently, this is from a chipotle at dulles airport. the airport requires all food vendors to sell breakfast so they started to experiment. i think it’s safe to say that this would be an excellent opportunity to make some more money by offering breakfast. furthermore, they should allow you to order it all day long, so on weekends you can roll in around 2pm after partying hard the night before and treat yourself to a chipotle breakfast burrito.

as you can tell, its only 930am and i am hungry already!
