New Wave

I've got a little bit more free time now that I have my apartment set up. Last evening I used that time to watch the first 8 episodes of Prison Break, which was one of the best shows on TV last year. I was not disappointed. This show is even better when taking from the beginning. I look forward to seeing the final 4 discs over the next week or so. It's nice to be able to sit down and relax and enjoy a show with good old 5.1 surround sound. :)

The Yogurt Flavors: Chocolate Decadence, World Class Vanilla, Grasshopper, Butterscotch, New York Cheesecake and Banana Macadamia Nut.

Crème Pies are on sale this weekend for $14.99 (Regularly $19.99). You can order one for tomorrow by 8 PM this evening.

Friday Fun Fact: The first recorded Wave was on October 15, 1981, in Oakland, California, at the third game of the American League Championship Series between the Oakland A's and the New York Yankees. Professional cheerleader "Krazy" George Henderson takes credit for starting the Wave that day. In 2002, Tamas Viscek of Eotvos University, Hungary, analyzed videos of Mexican soccer stadiums and discovered that it only took a dozen or so fans to initiate a Wave. Once it started, it usually moves clockwise at 40 feet per second in a path 15 seats wide. These characteristics apply to almost any stadium in any culture and sport. [The brake at the Ballpark in Arlington makes it hard to have a sustainable Wave.] (This fact brought to you by Fact or Crap daily calendar.)

Happy Birthday Wishes to Steve Wozniak. If you’re not familiar with him that is understandable, but you do have him to thank in part for the ability to sit at home or work on your personal computer and read this blog. You see, Mr. Wozniak was the co-founder of Apple Computers in 1976. The "Wizard of Woz" also developed a little game called Breakout. Want a free mini (4 oz) yogurt? (Limit one per person.) Give us the anime series that has a character named Woz in honor of Mr. Wozniak.

Maybe I can borrow your Prison Break when you're done?

You can borrow my...um...uh...series of books on the Civil War?

Sorry, I'm lame.

Have you seen Wonderfalls? Or Firefly? You can borrow those!
