Tap tap tap, is this thing on? Hello? Is there anyone out there? This microphone is a bit rusty, so I can't tell if its working or not. Can you hear me in the back of the room? Hello? Ok, let me know if you can hear me. I see a few faces out there, but its been awhile since I've used this mic that I can't really tell if its projecting at all. Please let me know.

I know I know, its been months since I've written. Yeah yeah, I'm a lazy piece 'o crap and the like. Whatever, heard it all before.

So as much as I'd like to promise more consistent updates on this site, I can't. But I don't know, after this lovely election, I felt the need to say something. May not be much, and it may offend some people I hold dear to my heart, but it has to be said.

I just wanted to thank the people who decided this election, the evangelicals who felt it was so damn important to keep homosexuals from marrying. I can't tell you thankful I feel that--despite a failed war, lousy economy, rising health care and energy costs--we, the U-nited States of America, felt it was more important to keep people of the same sex from marrying. Man will I sleep well tonite.

To think all this time I was led to believe our enemy was either Saddam Hussein or Osama Bin Laden. Turns out it was the people who live down the street from me, the people who live their life as they please and never hurt anyone.

Thanks, America, the land of opportunity and freedom, for setting me straight. 'Preciate the guidance.

The next time I hear about another friend laid off, or about another soldier killed in a war--whether you support it or not--was launched under false pretenses, I blame the real enemy--ourselves.

So obviously my maintenance of this here 'blog has not been up to par. But hey, things have been kinda busy in Casa de Rodeo as of late, and I just haven't had the energy to keep this thing running consistently.

Oh well. Shit, as they say, happens.

So anyway, what's new?

Ok. I hate this new Blogger format. I just wrote this whole long-ass entry and it got erased. So FYOU blogger!!!!

I'm not writing it all again.

Anyway, how are ya'll? Its been awhile... I actually wrote a nice post to welcome ya'll back, but its been deleted. And I'm not writing it again.

Oh well, that's what happens when you entrust anything to computers, you get screwed!!!!

Computers suck.

Yeah, I know. Its been awhile. Too much stuff going on and not enough time to deal with it all. All I know is that work is busy, social life is solid, and Bill Cosby is a genius.

Well, looks like the masses have spoken. Wow, what a response, three whole readers said they read my blog!!!! (And as an aside, I must say I really can't stand this new blogger format. I have no idea how far along I'm writing because the script never stops).

Anyway, my lowly Orioles continue to confound the imagination, finding ways to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. I've said many times that I'll be happy with a .500-plus record, but man, if we just had one or two pitchers, this team could be contending this year! Big fat Sidney Ponson has lived up to his promise of being big and fat, but is a far cry from the pitcher we saw last year. Look, I know this is the Yankees world and we all just live in it, but just once, I'd like to see the O's beat those jokers in the Bronx. Its not like the Yanks are going to win the World Series this year. My prediction is the Anaheim Angels will run amok this year to win their second crown in three years. So since they're not going to win it all, the Yanks just need to let the O's win one game against them this year, PLEASE! This is absurd. The O's since 1996 have some psychological barrier when it comes to the Yankees, like they actually believe they can't beat them. I don't think I've quite seen anything like this before since Papa Shango and his voodoo tricks left the WWF oh-so-many years ago. This has to stop.

Let's see, what else... I'm headed to the land of Mickey Mouse tomorrow. Spending four nights in Walt Disney World, hanging out with a bunch of cartoon animals and utility executives. Not sure which group is real or not, as they both live in a fantasy world.

BTW, anyone catch CBS News "breaking" the story about the Enron traders cussing? Talk about the biggest non-story this side of the cicadas. I mean, give me a break. I had a copy of that transcript three weeks ago, and guess what, there's no news!!! I read the damn thing and yeah, its funny and disturbing, but its nothing anyone covering this industry didn't already know went down. Big deal, Enron traders cussed as much as any other commodity trader, who cares? Everyone already knows they gamed the market, so what does this prove?

Just goes to show what makes news nowadays. All you need to do is find a villainous company, dirty language, and old tapes and you've got a story! Great reporting, CBS. Way to "obtain" those tapes, tapes that were made available to every single reporter who asked. BTW, if anyone wants a full copy of the transcript, let me know. Once I get back from Orlando, I might be able to disperse them...

Jeez, it has been a long time since I've posted, blogger has a
completely new interface and everything. And its really annoying,
as the sentences just run out the window and if you don't press the
return key, you'll be off the damn screen!

So anyway, its been a month since I've been up in these parts. Been
busy, and going away next week too. Going to Orlando for work.

Anyway, don't know if anyone is actually out there, so I'll keep this
one short. If you're out there, let me know and I'll write more. If
not, then I'll just disappear into the dark, dark night...
