I care less and less who’s on these shows every week. And I mostly didn’t really give a shit in to begin with. But, anyway….

Big anti-war rally and march planned for today here. It’s supposed to be the biggest anti-war demonstration in these parts since the Vietnam War, and is sponsored by some 60 organizations throughout New York State. It’s supposed to be a beutiful day, weather-wise, so that ought to help the turnout, and there are supposed to be people coming from all over NY, and even places like Vermont and Massachusetts. We’ll see what happens, I guess. Later, after the rally and march, Scott Ritter is leading a discussion panel on “The Peoples’ Response to the Patreaus Report,” with Dahlia Wafsi, and Jimmy Massey. I don’t know that I’ll get to go to that. I feel bad enough about leaving the dog all alone for so long as it is.

Another birthday today, as Janeane Garofalo hits the big 4-3 today. Happy Birthday, Janeane. I was gonna give you the really cool present I got Marc for his birthday, but I didn’t want you to think I was stalking you, either.

Happy Birthday to Marc Maron today, as he hits double fours. I was gonna get you a really great present, but I didn’t want you to think I was stalking you, so I guess I’ll just have to keep it for myself. Marc is in good company, as today’s birthdays include revolutionary rabble rouser, Sam Adams, the father of American political cartoon, Thomas Nast, “gangster” George Raft, Watergate Chairman Sam Ervin, the original Matt Dillon (and Bullwinkle narrator), William Conrad, Randy Bachman of BTO, Cheryl Tiegs (whose poster once proudly adorned my dorm room wall), and Meatloaf (not the food, of course, but the singer), among others.

Didn’t get to catch Marc and Sam yesterday, and I probably won’t, as long as they continue to do it during working hours, and in the format they’ve been doing it. Oh well. Maybe they’ll turn it into a real show one of these days. The big question is, should I buy Halo 3?

Just got around to watching last week’s Daily Show, with Bill Clinton. Say what you want about him, but seeing somebody who’s smart, articulate, and charming really made me feel sad about that idiot we have taking up space in DC right now. A damn shame.

Happy Sunday, and the first day of Fall. The days get shorter from here on out. And, for the first time in a long time, it was actually fun to watch an SU football game yesterday. Hopefully that wasn’t just an isolated incident. Anyhow…

Damn, I have a headache. It’s been a while since I spent three days in a row planted in the chair writing code. It’s actually kind of fun, but also kind of tiring. Especially when you’re doing something you really have no idea how to do. This coldfusion shit is kind of annoying. It makes certain things very simple, and it makes some simple things very, very difficult. And then there’s Oracle to deal with (which is fairly straight SQL, but then again, not always). If this makes no sense to you, you’re not alone. It doesn’t make much sense to me, either. That’s the problem with faking your way through life. It tends to give you a headache (greatly exacerbated by progressive lenses, I might add).

So, I got my fancy new glasses with the “progressive” lenses yesterday. Right off, I’d say they pretty much suck. Apparently, you have to look directly at what you want to see. I understood about the up and down part, but had no clue you couldn’t look left or right, either. That sucks. One of my best abilities is being able to look at stuff out of the sides of my eyes. Now, if I wanna check out a hot babe, I’ll have to look directly at her. This isn’t cool. I’m nothing if not discrete. Oh well, supposedly you get used to it. We’ll see.
