Just real quick

This weekend I learned that:

  • In STATA, "replace all" is not a good thing, "undo" doesn't undo anything and that I should save my work more often.
  • Following the references from one article to another will eventually take you in a circle, but not until it's been 8 to 10 hours and you forgot what you were looking for in the first place.
  • It doesn't matter if the first place team is playing against the second place team in the last few weeks of baseball season and there are five televisions available, all five of them will be tuned to football because people have money on this, dude.
  • Around here, when a guy who looks homeless says "I like your style," he is actually hitting on you, and quite possibly not homeless, and I can't begin to name the things I find ironic in that.
  • There is a ten year old child in my neighborhood who is going to be the next Michael Winslow, but meanwhile he's going to terrorize the neighborhood with uncannily accurate renditions of sirens and crows, to his family's dismay.

Now I'm off to enjoy my Monday.



  1. You don't have pro-baseball in Tennessee. Get used to it. It's not a baseball town.

    However, they are SERIOUS about their football, since it hasn't been around that long. And they had a really good season last season. Then lost some valuable players and now are probably going to suck it up. But you know, it's football, dude.

  2. Ohhhhh, you're a football person, I forgot. I should specify that 1) I was in what had been the "baseball bar," as they bought the baseball package and that 2) by football on five tvs, I mean different games on each tv. And NONE of them were the Titans after the 6th inning.

    But I'm over it, really.

  3. They weren't watching the Titans? What the hell?
