This, that ...and the other

He did it! You might remember a post in January where I posted a satellite picture of my house, with a dare for anyone to find it based on that picture. riversidedimple said he'd take that challenge. While I did have to give him one clue (which side of the major street I was on), he was actually able to find the house, even without my car being out front! Congrats to you, sir. Sorry I wasn't home at the time to properly congratulate you, but I had prearranged plans to attend a bachelor party...

Related note - You might remember that I am doing the MS Walk in Redlands this Saturday, and that I'm matching every donation received. Well, the totals just keep going up and up. As of the time of this writing, you and others from my work have donated a total of $580! Note that $50 was donated in cash and not reflected on the site, but will also be matched.

Not related to anything above - I had to stay home from work today. While that isn't a good thing, it allowed me a chance to watch GSN's first day of old programming. Specifically, I'm watching Blockbusters, and was surprised to find it was the Rafferty version. You know, I love the Cullen version, and still watch it on weekends, but this... *sigh* At it's heart, it's still the same show, but this Bill gets on my nerves, and the technology seems out of place to me. It's a little unnerving to not see a family pair as well.

WWE Raw is officially going to USA in a three year deal, with two yearly Saturday late night Raw specials on NBC and a spanish language Raw on Telemundo. On the heels of this, TNA Wrestling is rumoured to be approaching Spike TV to fill in the void.

wtf posted link that jumbach, jelly_doughnut, and lifewithmikey will probably appreciate: Baby Got Book. Warning: large Quicktime video there, so don't do it if on dialup.

I can't help wondering if the NBC specials will be called "Saturday Night's Main Event"...:)

While it'd be a nice nod to the history, I got a funny feeling it wouldn't fit in well with the "Attitude" now.

That has got to be the funniest thing I've seen in a while!!! Thanks for sharing. (I mean the video, not the $580 in donations--that's awesome.)

I'd note that one must have a good sense of humor to watch that video. (Reminds me of the Mandy Moore movie Saved!)

All of my friends, by definition, have a good sense of humour. =)

Speaking of "good sense[s] of humor," I was just looking at the requirements for a planning job in Mill Valley CA (Bay Area.) One of the things they look for in a planner is a "good sense of humor." That made me laugh.

So, if I get to the interview, should I call upon my zingy one-liners?

I say to take along a little device that plays the *rimshot* drum noise for use right after your zingy one-liners.

So a planner walks into a bar . . .

Just kidding. How about if I say, "I brought an extra copy of my resume--it's an electronic .PDF file for your use. Here it is."

Then, it's one of those zapping computer disk things.

wasn't WWE on USA before?

Yup. They bolted USA in 2000 to go to what was then TNN. TNN had just revamped from The Nashville Network to The National Network, needed programming, and had the Viacom money to spend.

Thanks for the confirmation on the WWheE move back home. I knew it was rumored to go back, but now it's for sure.

Brings back lots of memories -- all the way to Tuesday Night Titans. :)

I posted "baby got Book" awhile back. And yes, I did appreciate it! "I like big Bibles and I can not lie..."

They're showing RAFFERTY Blockbusters?!?! WOAH!! I may have to wake up 30 minutes earlier now on Mondays & Wednesdays for my 9am class. :p

...anyway, too bad you weren't there. Jen told me where you were, but I was feeling slightly blah and needed a little rest. Now that I know where the casa is, you'll have to invite me over for a BBQ or somethin. :D Maybe I'll stop by one of these off-weekends coming up soon. Not this weekend, but the following weekend?
