Vacation

I should have been getting home today from the Farewell Tour of the Go-Go's today. Unfortunately Jane Wiedlin fell off a cliff and the tour got canceled. No word of a make up tour. I had middle of the theater seats for the final show in Austin, Texas IN MY HAND! Well I guess I can be happy she is alright and perhaps they will tour again next summer.
So with that...we are taking a much needed vacation. There will be no rock climbing involved, promise. I intend to drink some rum and sit on the beach for a few days and watch the waves hit the shore. 
No, seriously, that's all I intend to do.
See ya next week.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad attacks Octopus Paul

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the Iranian leader, says Paul the Octopus, the sea creature that correctly predicted the outcome of World Cup games, is a symbol of all that is wrong with the western world.

"Those who believe in this type of thing cannot be the leaders of the global nations that aspire, like Iran, to human perfection, basing themselves in the love of all sacred values," he said.

Say what? 
Perhaps the Iranian dictionary doesn't have an entry for the word ENTERTAINMENT. It was just for entertainment. This guy takes himself WAY TOO seriously. Lighten up Ahmadinerjacket.

Sent to the Russian Front

BP appears to have had enough of its embattled CEO, and are sending him to the Russian front -- literally.

The oil giant's chief executive, Tony Hayward, will step down from BP's top post in October and take a job with TNK-BP, the company's joint venture in Russia, Sky News reported Monday.

Maybe he can "get his life back" while he is drinking away all his sorrows with cheap vodka. Good luck Tony.

I heard a story today on NPR that reported he would become an example for future business students on how NOT to handle a corporate disaster. I can't find the transcript, but that was what I was listening to today on the way in. Welcome to infamy. Tony meet Joseph Hazelwood, Joseph, this is Tony.
