I Think I Have A New Thing on My Christmas List
My dad raised me on the Hanna Barbara stuff. Way better and way funnier than most cartoons on today. Wacky Racers was a cheesy, wildly amusing show that I watched pretty much every morning when I was about five years old. And they put it on DVD just for guys like me. Great to know there are more of us out there.
Just found out in India there is a ‘Children’s Day’ holiday....– Twitterer TheMosey
According to some sources, 35,000 people had voted early at Vets Memorial here in Franklin County, and that’s only through Monday. Papa Idle Days crunched some numbers (‘cuz he’s a geek - like father, like son) and realized that’s about 1,200 people every hour. That’s mighty impressive coming from the state that cost John Kerry the election last time around.

StoogeontheLoose: weeee xanga
pokaspot88: xanga.. really.. xanga
pokaspot88: i didn't know you were a 16 year old girl
pokaspot88: why are you on xanga?
pokaspot88: do you also have a secret xanga?
StoogeontheLoose: just randomly flipping through my old one
StoogeontheLoose: and no
pokaspot88: i never got into xanga
pokaspot88: i was all for the LJ though
pokaspot88: oh lj..
StoogeontheLoose: why ask about secret xanga
pokaspot88: because you had a secret blog..
StoogeontheLoose: i did?
pokaspot88: yeah.. that you told me about last night
StoogeontheLoose: well, was not so secret, really
pokaspot88: yeah, but i didn't figure it out.. and you did not speak of it.. so kinda secret
StoogeontheLoose: also, i lied
StoogeontheLoose: i did have a secret xanga, but it was laaaaame
pokaspot88: you need to quit lying..
StoogeontheLoose: i forgot about itttttt
pokaspot88: makes me a sad face
pokaspot88: secrets don't make friends and stuff
pokaspot88: when did you have a secret xanga?
StoogeontheLoose: ages ago
StoogeontheLoose: and you'll never knoooooow about it
pokaspot88: fine then
pokaspot88: then you'll never know about my secret journal either
StoogeontheLoose: no sweat
StoogeontheLoose: its secret for a reason, silly
pokaspot88: but mine is locked on my computer and no one can see it, so its k
StoogeontheLoose: mine i think was protected
StoogeontheLoose: there's that
StoogeontheLoose: i don't even feel like trying to bother with xanga
pokaspot88: yeah.. xanga is a scary place
pokaspot88: for emo kids

Wasilla's All I Saw
So, the Twitter Election thinger - which is annoyingly fascinating, and will hopefully exist in some sense after next week - is all abuzz with the above phrase. Why? It’s a Palin-drome! Get it?!
It’s been a busy day in a lazy sort of way
Me: So your Titans play the Colts. This needs to stops.
Hanna: What needs to stop?
Me: You guys winning and you making fun of the Browns losing.
Hanna: I've not made fun of you.
Hanna: I'm totally innocent. Innocent as a five year old with a lollipop. And pigtails. And a pretty pink dress.
Me; Yeah. If you stole the lollipop. And hadn't washed the dress in three weeks.
Divisiontitlequest, Week 8
You gotta love the NFL is 2008. The Browns manage to scrape a win out of a game despite doing everything in their power to keep the failtrain runnin’. We’re sitting at 3-4 and have a pretty realistic shot at making the playoffs. Things are all kinds of kooky this year, and unless you’re the Titans, Raiders, or Bengals, things are wide open for you. Didn’t really get to...
Finally! A Halloween costume!
Noel Gallagher. With injured rib. Think this: plus an ace bandage around the chestal region. Part of me wonders if I’ll wake up and think I’m an idiot for thinking this is cool.
Penn State 13 - 6 Ohio State
Well, there are different kinds of losses. To put it in blog terms, tag this one “Frustrating”. With an extra hand on the football, Terrelle Pryor would have had a first down and a nice addition to his career highlight reel. Alas. Still, consensus says “Go Penn State”. They won this game on their merits, and honestly, wouldn’t it be cool to see JoePa head out with a...
I’ve been tinkering around with various themes over the last few weeks. It’s annoying, I know. But when I get to tinkering with the colors here, I think it’s my favorite. Stay tuned.
Did one of my Facebook friends really post a link to video Saddam Hussein’s execution? WTF
Italian Batman! On a bicycle! With cheesy 70s filler music! Did I mention it’s from a porno?
So, you have two ideas for a Halloween costume. Both of them are pretty freakin’ cool, and devastatingly hip and trendy. But you don’t want to blend into the gaggle of Jokers or the swarms of Sarah Palins. What to do, what to do! May that haunt your dreams, kiddies.

Idle Days is on location in Bowling Green, Kentucky, visiting Miss Idle Days and others. As such, I have no direct access to the Browns this week without going to B-Dubs, and well, the lady just took the weekend off from there. Might be in poor taste. So, there won’t be much reaction here, though we’re amusing ourselves with the end of the Titans-Chiefs game (the Titans are the...

Divisiontitlequest - Week 6 wrap-up
Alright, so it’s still the middle of the fourth quarter. But still, we just pulled a 14-point swing. The Giants were threatening inside the red zone and BOOM! Pick six. I’m giddy right now. The defense has been pretty good this year, save the Baltimore game - and those two turnovers inside the red zone are just icing on the cake. The difference is Derek Anderson. He got out of his...

Game’s in an hour. So Kellen Winslow Jr was hospitalized over the weekend with undisclosed issues. Through various online sources, including confidants of the elder Idle Days, ID has learned that these undisclosed problems are…”testicle issues”. The question is not, “Is there a joke here?” The question is simply which one.
Next Thursday on Hulu. October 30 on TV. Squee.
ZOMG YOU GUYS
Tomo (er…I misspelled Tony Romo but now I like it) is out for a month. Busted pinkie. Uh-oh. Also, if last night’s post didn’t make any sense (it’s didn’t), I apologize. And if it did…I’m scared.
BUSTED! Thanks, Videogum EDIT: Apparently, CBS skipped out on this juicy bit of footage below, taken while Monkey Man was still rather proud of what he was doing.

So the Brownies are doing the Monday Night thang for the first time in, what, five years? Jeez.

huntingwabbits06: no, we didnt
huntingwabbits06: that was a boring game
StoogeontheLoose: all hail the field goal!
huntingwabbits06: our offense and special teams did alright, but our offense is not where it should be
huntingwabbits06: we had what, 14 pass plays that whole game?
StoogeontheLoose: which isn't so bad unless you consider we run a spread offense
huntingwabbits06: not good
StoogeontheLoose: kinda defeats the purpose
huntingwabbits06: so um yea, what happened LSU?
StoogeontheLoose: that's the nice thing about the Big Ten
huntingwabbits06: yea but by 30 points?
StoogeontheLoose: the rest of the conference eats itself BEFORE you get to them
StoogeontheLoose: yeah, florida is pretty good
StoogeontheLoose: and omg college football is crazy

On the surface, the endorsement of the man who has the job you’re interviewing for isn’t really a bad deal.

we didn’t let Frank Caliendo do his Bush impersonation for six months? Maybe even a year. Seriously, he can do any other impersonation. Just no Bush or variation therein. Would he have a career after that? I think anyone else who’s forced to watch TBS for any reason (i.e. MLB playoffs) would be with me on this one. Amirite?
The inevitable happens at the 0:32 mark. Hilarity enuses. You will laugh, and you will feel bad. Then you’ll watch it again. And again. And again. Giggle the guilt away.
