The Cold War

Roomate: What do you know about the cold war?
Me: Well, I know that a lot of people think that the cuban missile crisis was it but it was actually a lot longer. The whole thing lasted like 5 or 6 years. (my answer was much longer but for the purposes of this post, that is what I said)
*a few minutes later after I got curious and looked it up on wikipedia*
Me: okay, so apparently the cold war lasted like 50 years.
Roomate: hmm... who knew?!

Interesting stuff on Wikipedia about it.

Two Days Later

Two days later, I still have two items on that to-do list and 55 emails in my purdue inbox. I haven't checked my Yahoo mail for three days so I don't even want to know what that looks like.

On top of all of this , my backspace key is not exactly working either. It works, if I press down really, really hard. Now I have to take my laptop to Chicago to get fixed! Grrr!

On My Way to San Diego

Today, I'm heading home and then the entire family is on its way to San Diego, California. This will be the second time I've been to California and the first in San Diego. We'll be there for five days, Wednesday-Sunday. So far, we're planning on checking out the Old Town Trolley, San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park, Hollywood, and the USS Midway. We're staying in the Marriot Hotel & Marina (picture), which is right on San Diego Bay.

The forecast currently says it will be in mid-60's the entire week, with a high of 65 degrees on Friday. The timing couldn't be more perfect as we had our first snowfall just yesterday.

Making fun of West Laf - But It's So True!

How do you know you're attending a game at Ross-Ade Stadium?

You hear: "There's a 1997 John Deere 8300 in the parking lot with the lights on" announced over the PA system.
