Gowalla Wars: SEC Football Stadiums

A couple of months ago I did a rundown of where SEC football stadiums stand in terms of Foursquare checkins. It’s only right that I do the same for the stadiums as Gowalla spots, especially considering I’m a much bigger user of Gowalla than Foursquare these days. These rundowns are meant to be benchmarks to [...]

How USAA sees occupations in 2010

Now that USAA has opened up its banking products to non-military types, I’m in process of moving our checking and savings accounts over there (refunded ATM charges, good bill pay, free checks, convenient deposits, etc.). So in setting up my profile I was prompted to select an occupation from a pull-down menu. The list of [...]

LSU v. Auburn – week 1

I think it’s fair to say a whole lot of the SEC West race will hinge on the LSU/Auburn showdown Sept. 20 – and apparently a lot also hinges on whether Alabama’s dehumanizing of Clemson was Bama being great or Clemson being horrible, because Fonzie’s boys absolutely tore it up. And there are questions circling [...]

Something at LSU more pointless than Jessica Pivik

One of my Baton Rouge operatives tipped me to an article in the LSU Reveille this morning about the Student Senate being unhappy with Jessica Pivik”s column. It seems the SGA is questioning their funding of The Reveille because of Jessica. This is apparently the latest in a flurry of debate down at LSU about [...]

God (Gee-odd) – think about it!

In researching current events for last night”s U-Joint Trivia match (we led going in to the final question but ended up in second because somebody knew too much about presidents – we think they were cheating), I decided to learn more about Yasser Arafat. One question I thought might come up was “what does Yasser [...]

Well that didn’t last long

My flirtation with Satan (aka Comcast) lasted just about 90 minutes. While waiting for the wife to wrap up at work, I gave the friendly folks at Comcast a call to answer some questions left open by their less-than-informative website. My experience went as follows: Call 1: Ignoring the prompt to “enter the phone number [...]

Doctor Jessica Pivik strikes again

OK, I”m more convinced now that Jessica Pivik is taking herself seriously (or maybe just using her column to research her own personal issues). Her column in this week”s LSU Reveille is another “exploration” of medical issues rather than a (poor) attempt at shocking sexual humor. Rather than bore you with a link to her [...]

Deal with the devil?

I find myself today considering the ridiculous; contemplating the absurd; evaluating the ludicrous; pondering the preposterous … I”m thinking about getting cable TV. Yep, cable. Ditching my Dish, as they say. Signing on to have Satan himself (as represented by any and all local monopoly cable companies) deliver my in-home visual entertainment. I have a [...]

Seeking spiritual guidance

With the wife out of town this weekend, I have been looking for a spiritual and meaningful way to spend my time. Unfortunately, I have been unable to find many Christian events (outside of Sunday services, of course) going on this weekend, so I began to wonder what Jesus” plan is for me. Then the [...]

Looks like I picked the wrong week to poke fun at Christians

OK, in case you didn”t get the joke, my bit yesterday about swearing off my beloved Makers Mark and LSU football was meant as a commentary on the power of “moral Christians” in government now that they got W re-elected. Somewhere down the road, people like me who don”t believe in Jesus and mock “Christians” [...]
