October 2004


Yeah, so? Why do I care? These are questions you may all be asking. Well, you’re in luck. I have answers.

The outcome of Washington Redskins home football games has correctly predicted the winner of every U.S. presidential election since 1936.

This is how it works: If the Redskins win the last homegame before the election, the incumbent party stays in the White House. However, if they lose, then the incumbent party packs their bags and goes home.

I sure hope this phenomenon stays true, because as Animal (from the Muppets) on the Mr. SOS mixtape says, “Bush Go Bye Bye! Ayeyayayaya!” Wasn’t that a good Animal impression?

Wow, it was fun. There were a few people last night who though charlie actually was a girl. (pictures will hopefully be coming soon). I was soo drunk… The best costume of the night had to be the three guys from Weekend at Bernies. The guy that was Bernie looked exactly like him. I saw a couple other Larry the Cable Guys. Well, they could have been normal Springfieldians. Who knows. Anyway, I’m tired and need to nap or something.

Sounds like a law firm, doesn’t it? Well, I assure you, it’s not. Instead, it is a great Jazz band that I recently stumbled upon. I first found out about them over at ropeadope and then two days later saw them as the House Band on the Carson Daly show (1. I don’t know why I was watching it. 2. I don’t know why a jazz band was the house band on said show). Anyway, I suggest you listen to some of their music. Check them out over at

It appears that they will be in St. Louis at Mississippi Nights on November 11th. I might have to make it home for that, depening on whether or not I kill myself and everyone around me based on the results of Tuesday’s election.

So, the people who are graduating in May and have a 3.25 GPA were chosen to test out the new Online Registration system yesterday. A friend in the History department registered 5 minutes after the starting time, and the student teaching class (only one available mind you) had 13 seats left (out of a possible 25). So, when real registration starts on Monday, that number could be significantly lower. How is that possible? What are they going to do, tell people that they can’t take their very last class of their college career because there isn’t enough room? Doesn’t make sense to me, especially since you don’t actually go to this class, because you are student teaching. Good thing I’m not supposed to do mine until next fall. I’ve got enough to worry about right now anyway. School is killing me.

Working in the lab right now (cheek for all you on campus people) is really boring. Not only is it boring, but the lab has been full of weirdos all day. Did the lunar eclipse turn people into complete psychos last night? I’m beginning to think so.
