Geek Chart

I love because I find stuff like this geek chart on the site. I see some of my best friends on the chart.

Blogging The Oscars (Not)

I missed most of the show. The bits I saw were boring (as usual and what do I expect anyway? Who am I, and why do I look to the Oscars to tell me what's real in the universe?). No biggie it turns out, though I'm a little sad to have missed Ellen being funny (I guess she shot her wad early on) and Will Ferrell.

I have one outstanding question -- what's up with Jack Nicholson's head -- solidarity with Britney?

For real coverage from real people who watched the show:

- Xui had a contest for picking the winners, and I failed to place.

- I trust Dirty Dan's review and would have assessed the show similarly had I watched it my self. I disagree on a few points. I didn't mind Jennifer Hudson's dress. Also, I thought Jennifer Lopez looked pretty good, and I was pleased to see her covering up her privates and whatnot.

P.S. -- another good recap.

Elias's Ring

I'm still a feminist and concerned about perpetuating gender inequality. I try not to do it. So, I marked Elias with an engagement ring. It's silver with a Greek inspired pattern. He says he likes it and seems to remember to wear it every day when he leaves the house. I'm glad for it because he teaches undergrad ladies who need to know they can step off already.

My Valentine Gift

Yup, it's a diamond ring for me to wear on my left hand on the special finger. Elias presented it to me the other day.

Happy Valentine's Day and Early Birthday Wishes to Brother John!

Today is Valentine's Day which means it's one day from Brother John's Birthday. For a year and 2 days in his life, he was my baby brother. Then he moved to a middle sibling position, a position I share with him, as we have another sibling in our batch who is older than me. John has performed well in his role, but has lately soared in his work in fatherhood. Like Ed, he's a super sweetie and I love him dearly.

Ed is the sweetest, loveliest baby brother in the whole world. I hope he has a great day today!

UPDATE: just go here for the best of the best.

Blogging The Super Bowl

Prince's Half Time Show was the best half-time show I have ever seen. Ever. I wish I had been there to see it live. Even in the rain. Even if the rain messed up my hair.

The hotwings are awesome, even though I had to wait in line an hour with Oakland's finest to get them. The atomic flavor is better than drugs.

As for the Bulls and the Cults -- I don't really care who wins. I just love the holiday feel of it all

Happy Super Bowl Eve!

Xui and Ariel, I hope tomorrow is everything you dreamed of and more.

Here in Oakland, we're looking forward to a nice family gathering and food that I had to order days ahead of time. Brother Ed is bringing his Chicago sweetie, and I'm worried because I think everyone else is for the Colts.
