Mexicans Riding Skateboards

They are actually freeboard. Geronimo sent this over to some of us and now you can see him tear up the mean streets of DC suburbs on his phat freeboard.

You can see all of the videos he’s found amusing in one way or another by clicking here.

World Basketball Championships Update:Turkey

Don’t worry, I know you don’t know what the World Basketball Championships are. Nobody in the United States does because it’s not advertised here. Also, they are playing in Japan so the games are on at like 4am.

Well, to let you all know, Turkey is 3-0 so far. They beat Lithuania, one of the best teams in Europe, and the rest of the games are looking easy.

August 24th is vs. Greece. I’ll tell you one thing, any competition between Greeks and Turks is worth a late night. Or TiVo at least 😉

Am I tooting my own horn? You bet…TOOT TOOT!

[UPDATE] Phew, and Turkey just beat Brazil 73-71 an hour or so ago…

The US is 3-0 too…

Franklin College makes US News & World Report List

Stay tuned for stories and adventures from peaceluvbug, aka. aop’s sister on her very own blog.


She just got there today, so give it sometime to update 😉

How does 5 minutes always become 30?

You know those mornings.

The mornings where you hit the snooze button and say, “just 5 more minutes.”

You then tell yourself that this time you won’t go over five minutes and oversleep again. Then…you do. It is 30 minutes later and you’ve got to skip some part of the morning routine (breakfast, shower, teeth brushing – not in any particular order) only to find yourself saying,

Next time it’ll only be 5 minutes. I won’t let it happen again…sigh.

That’s why we’ve got sunrise clocks now isn’t it?? 😉

Bored? Read about a Nazi Restaurant

I read this and decided it was interesting enough to post. If you’re bored and looking for interesting links and things to read, the Media Forum is full of interesting links anyone can post.

The latest story I put up there is on a restaurant in India that is using Hitler to promote their food.


What’s next? Stalin selling cars (or rice)? Get it, rice? Eh, ok…maybe not.
