Be Excellent to each other

I got online to blog, and was coming up blank, so I surfed around a bit, trying to find inspiration. I stopped at Annika's blog, and found in her twitter column that she said: "Oh crap. So much for my Bill & Ted sequel."
I instantly pulled up imdb, to see if it was Keanu Reeves or Alex Winter that had passed away. There was nothing on the front page, so I hopped on over to Metafilter, and discovered that it was neither Bill nor Ted, but, instead, Rufus.
George Carlin has passed away at age 71.

Oddly enough, two co-workers of mine just went and saw Carlin perform about a week ago. Hard to believe how quick these types of things happen.

I added both Bill & Ted movies to our Netflix queue just now. (The girls haven't seen either one, and I wouldn't mind revisiting them.)

In honor of his passing, I think all television and radio stations should broadcast the "7 Dirty Words".

Moving on, today we watched a Nova special on Super Volcanoes. As is required by all documentaries on natural disasters, this one ended with the fear mongering factoid about how the Yellowstone Super Volcano is overdue to erupt. 12/21/2012, anyone?
We also went to the library, where we picked up lots of books, and then had ice cream from Dairy Queen, because, good god, it is HOT outside, and if you don't have ice cream you will most certainly perish in this heat.
Tomorrow Stephanie and I are going to drop off the girls at Steph's mom's house, and go out on a romantic date (heh), although we haven't decided what we're going to do, yet. Of the movies that are currently out, Iron Man or Indiana Jones and the Deathly Hallows look to be the most promising (although I'm bummed that neither Hancock nor Dark Knight are out yet).
If we decide to opt out of going to catch a flick, we could ...I don't know? Mini-golf? Just have dinner? Go to the bookstore? What do people do when they have free time, anyway? Guess we'll find out tomorrow.

Duh. You have sex.

And remember..."tits" is such a friendly word. It sounds like a nickname, right? "Hey, Tits, come here, man. Hey Tits, meet Toots. Toots, Tits. Tits, Toots."

Iron Man is totally kickass.

I was just thinkg, "Wow Deathly Hallows is out already? I never saw any trailers for that."

*note to self: read PROPERLY*

Having corrected myself, I second Annika's recommendation,
