So I'm flipping channels and just came across the USA Jump Rope Championship on ESPN2. First of all, WTF? And second of all, shouldn't that be on The Ocho?

TV is dumb. I'm going outside to sit on my deck, soak up the sun and read a book.

Go Broncos

I'm usually very proud that I attended my Alma mater, but reading this just made me cringe. Sad thing is, I think a similar incident happened when I went there. Nice, guys. Reeeeeeal nice.

Pillow Fight!

Last night was the second Valentine's Day pillow fight at Justin Herman Plaza in downtown San Francisco. I knew about it last year, but didn't end up going because I didn't want to make a bad impression at my first week of a new job by leaving early to make it there on time, but this year I figured it would be okay. I am soooooo glad I went!There was so much down and feathers in the air it looked like it was snowing...

...people were tossing pillows into the air...

...and the ground was covered in feathers!

Here's Laughing Squid with more pics that beat the hell out of my camera phone pics.

They obviously didn't see my previous post on the logic of sentencing.

Yahoo Is Confused

Apparently the folks at Yahoo got confused when writing their headline as they seem to have mistaken Anna Nicole for Marilyn Monroe...or Princess Diana. This "candle in the wind" headline didn't last long; it currently simply reads "Remembering Anna Nicole". Smart move. I shudder to think what headlines will read should Paris Hilton die an untimely death.

"Breaking" News?

Screen captures from earlier today:

This was either a slow news day or a sad commentary on the status of the American media. And this is a publicist--an entertainment publicist, for that matter--talking.
