Doing my part

Just so we’re clear, I became incredibly green tonight while drinking franzia.  Yes Franzia.  It turns out that Franzia is conveniently created with three of the biggest environmental buzz terms out there – “Less CO2 emissions,” “Less packaging waste,” and even a “smaller carbon footprint.”  I’m not sure what “Less

UW-Madison Socio-Academic Campus Zones

After ballroom dance class today, I was on my way back to the Engineering campus and ran into my roommate, Lee, who asked, “what are you doing over here?” – a very valid question actually, since I haven’t been required to go to the east side of campus for a

The worst movie in the history of the world

My roommate recently mentioned that he believed Nicolas Cage to be the worst actor in Hollywood.  I do loathe both National Treasures, Ghost Rider (lowered my IQ), Gone in 60 Seconds (further fueled my hatred of any movie involving a combination of the words “fast” and/or “furious”), and “Knowing” looks worse

Coalition of the willing monkeys

I typically associate myself with the conservative side of politics, however, after watching Will Ferrell’s “You’re Welcome America” on HBO for the second time, some absolutely ridiculous portions of his stand-up comedy caused me to wonder, “can that possibly be real.”  There were hilarious quotes that Bush actually said, such

Avoiding alarms

There only only two things in life that I enjoy waking up early for: Waking up at 5:00 AM on a badger gameday to either drink bloody marys, or as of last year to go to UW Marching Band rehearsal. Going fishing Other than that, I’m convinced that the moment

Jokes on you, America!

When we received Lady Liberty from the French in 1886 to represent our “friendship established during the American Revolution,” it was a great international gesture… sort of.  It dawned on me recently, however, that from about 1886-1906 it was a beautiful bronze color until it turned to its (arguably) unattractive shade

Take that iTunes!

I’m not an Apple fan.  I’ve never liked their GUI (possibly because I’ve heard it’s more addicting than Marshall Applewhite was to the Heaven’s Gate Cult) and would much rather stumble along with Microsoft Vista.  There really is no way around using iTunes, however.  Not only do I own an

No answer?

Our offense is like the pythagorean theorem: There is no answer! -Shaq I guess Pythagoras got it wrong back in the 500s (BC that is).

The Disneyland of Mexican Restaurants!

While in Colorado during winter break I accomplished three significant things: Spent time with Dave and Brea Skied four days with Lee in Keystone, Vail, and Copper Mountain (my first time at Copper) Ate the Mexican dinner of a lifetime at Casa Bonita! If you’re unfamiliar with the restaurant, this

Love You Forever – World’s creepiest children’s book

I’ve always liked children’s books because although simple, many of them carry great life lessons.  I was talking to my mom last week about books that I loved while I was growing up.  We actually disagreed when it came to what my favorite book was growing up.  In my mom’s
