Okay, Blogspot.

You won't let me delete comment spam? I'll just delete the whole relevant post, then.


Oh, and since it's been nearly a year it's time for one of my random "odd nerdy thing happened to me today" stories.

So I've been sitting in front of my TV sorting 60,000 trading cards for purposes of the game store I'm trying to get off the ground, and since this is a fairly mindless activity I've been playing podcasts and DVDs and whatnot in the background. The latest thing I "watched" was the anime Neon Genesis Evangelion, which I'm sure exactly one of you are familiar with.

Then while I was walking to my entrepreneurship seminar this afternoon the streetlights just happened to change at exactly the same time as some guy's car alarm went off. It is a mark of how functionally-nerdy I am that I did not immediately dash for the nearest bomb shelter.

Only One More Sleep, Keith

There's an ongoing battle in my brain between my eagerness for the Bush Administration to be over and my desperate hope that once he's inaugurated, the media will stop drooling all over Barack Obama.

Seriously, I think if I see that picture of him looking inspiringly into the middle distance at what I can only assume is the Hope of Our Generation one more time I will be physically sick.

Also, Dick Cheney hurt his back moving out of the Observatory. Hehehehe.

Edit, 10am Jan 20:

Okay, that was sort of harsh... of course Obama's better than the alternative. I'm just annoyed at how the press has been acting in the runup to the inaugural. At this point, given the buildup, if Obama doesn't sweep away all the world's ills, teach us all to believe again, and then suffer and die for our sins he'll have underperformed.

Highly Effective, Apparently

So in my ongoing campaign to make my blog about politics and card games be about TV commercials instead, I've just noted an ad for "Lyrica."

This is a new drug for fibromyalgia pain. Supposed to treat what is sometimes called "chronic fatigue syndrome" without being an anti-depressant. Basically it's a painkiller.

Contained in the FDA-mandated list of side effects in the ad is "muscle pain."

Wow. Worthwhile.
