Yesterday they had Bellevue listed at 111° F, today they have Marysville listed at 255% humidity. I don't even think its possible to get over 100% humidity in most circumstances (it can be done, for example in a Wilson Cloud Chamber, but I'm fairly certain Marysville is not one of those...)

This is how you make an entrance!



I just love how much fun everyone is having! This is how you do a wedding, its a celebration!
Rather than try and cross post on both my blog and LJ, i'm going to do a weekly post here with links to my recent blog posts for those of you who check LJ more often than other places.

So far this week:

I encourage you to comment on my blog itself rather than this post, but i'll take what I can get :)

You know what sucks?  Being in a 4 v 4 game where one of your teammates is AFK the whole game.

You know what makes me want to punch people in the face?  Being in a 4 v 4 game when all THREE of your teammates are AFK the whole game. 

Stupid 1 vs 100 rules...

So despite the fact that this is a SKILL BASED GAME, just because I work at Microsoft (in a division not even REMOTELY related to this project) I can't win any prizes.

This sucks.
 

Today we celebrate our Independence Day!

Palin quiting early

For those of you who don't catch the news that often I figured i'd post this info.

Sarah "I can see Russia from my house" Palin announced today that not only will she NOT seek reelection in 2010, but she will resign next month as Governor of Alaska. Thats right, resign, a year and a half early. Her lame attempt at an excuse was that she didn't want to be a lame duck governor because that would be politics as usual.

So speculation begins:

Health problem?
Brewing scandal?

There is very likely going to be a lot more to this story than what she has let on about so far.

Suffice it to say, resigning part way through an elected term with no rational excuse is going to make easy fodder for campaign criticism should she decide to try for the GOP Presidential nomination in 2012.

Memorial Day

Today is Memorial Day. For many people that means bbq's, a day off work, sales, etc. Nothing wrong with that, however, that is not what the day is for.

I have noticed a lot of people thanking veterans today. I think its always good to honor our veterans, however, that is not what the day is for.

Memorial Day is for honoring those who died in service to their country. So take an moment or two today to remember those brave men and women who gave their lives defending the United States.
