grumble

I left home a little after 7, because i wanted to get to work early so i can make sure to get home in time to watch Buffy with Allyn.

I actually got to work just after 8:45, so a little more than an hour and a half to go the 35 miles to work =P

No Doubt

No Doubt has a cool new song on the radio!

I'm still wondering what happened to my Return of Saturn cd. I bought a used one, but it seems to have disapeared somewhere =( I've been frustrated the last few days cause i would hear the song on the radio, and they would say it was by No Doubt, and i would look for my Return of Saturn cd and not be able to find it, and searches on the net for the lyrics turned up nothing.

So today i finally had the bright idea of going to the No Doubt web site, and the reason i don't recognize the song and can't find the lyrics on the web is cause they're coming out with a new album next month! *bounce!*

It's called Rock Steady, and is supposed to be released on Dec 11th.

Woohoo!!!

While looking through my morning websites i found out that Nintendo has told retailers that they can start selling GameCubes as soon as they arrive at the store!

It's too bad that Nintendo isn't being a little more public about it, perhaps they'll say something about it on the 15th when the X-Box ships. This is so strange, companies just don't do this normally, but it's cool, and it's probably a smart move on Nintendo's part.

So anyway, i was making plans to go around to all the stores that are going to be carrying the GameCube and see if any of them were willing to fork one over.

However i went and talked to the other nintendo fan in the office (or at least the only one i know of) and he said that i probably shouldn't do that, since he'd been talking with the guy in charge of our studio, and he'd said that we're going to be getting GameCubes the same way we got PS2s last year.

Apparently Electronic Arts has some kind of deal to ger GameCubes from Electronic Boutique even though I don't think the companies are linked in any way. (Well, other than having their hands in each other's pockets of course =) So the monday after the official ship date we're supposed to be getting 20-30 GameCubes, and another 20 or 30 a few days later! =)

So it's a good thing i tried to let others know about the early release before trying to go out and buy my own =) Of course this means that i still have to wait about a week to get one, but hey, can't argue with a free GameCube =)

oh my god

How can people be so friggin STUPID!?!?!?

"gas guzzling [is] a myth"??? "American's have a right 'to do what we want and buy what we want. Isn't that why we're fighting?'"??? So you can buy cars that get _12 mpg_???

Makes me feel a lot better about my baby-SUV that gets about 23-24 mpg.

I'm also kind of pissed off about the car commercials i've been hearing on the radio about some company deriding another comapny's mini SUVs. Who convinced americans that their cars should be larger than life in all aspects? I like my Rav4 being taller than a normal car, and i like the fact that it has a station wagon type back instead of a trunk. However why would i want my car to be wider, longer, and heavier than everything else out on the roadway?
