and still more random stuff...

is it just me, or, when they make a movie of the week about the truly heartbreaking story of laci peterson -- and you know they will, if they haven't started already -- isn't it pretty clear that ben affleck is getting the scott peterson role? i mean, come on. just look at this and tell me it's not ben affleck. it's totally ben affleck.

so, i heard the news this morning while i was getting ready for work that j. garner has been sent to iraq to head up the interim government, and i was, like, "well, that's an idea i can get behind! jennifer garner would kick so much ass! she'd have that place whipped into shape in no time at all! you go, jennifer garner!" but, alas, it's not jennifer garner. it's some military guy named jay garner. man, was i disappointed. i bet alot of iraqis were disappointed, too. they could have had ass-kicking spy girl, but got some old military geezer instead. what a drag.

----

so, on my way through the pittsburg airport, i'm coming to the end of the moving walkway, and i happen to look down and see that the company that manufactures the moving walkway is schindler. then, i get all giggly because i keep thinking that, if they make escalators and moving walkways, then maybe they make elevators too and then they'd be schindler's lifts!

and i thought that was extremely funny.

----

i had to reread an article about the sars scandal in china twice this morning. the part that stopped me in my tracks was this:

"from the start, chinese sources said, the new government of president hu jintao and premier wen jiabao, who formally took power in march, approved the coverup."

okay, wait a minute. the chinese president and the chinese premier are named hu and wen?! that is awesome.

----

is it just me, or does the word ineffable sound like something you say as a slam on someone's bedroom prowess or something? like, "i know he has a great personality, but, seriously, he's completely ineffable."

of course, the same goes for effable.

anyway, i'm gonna start using those words like that. feel free to do the same.
