another really boring post

Can someone please tell my why the caller ID on my phone suddenly decided it wants to be on Central time? Anyone? Anyone? The best part is when I check the call log online, the time is correct, so it's not a problem with the system. Apparently my phone just wishes it was in the midwest?

I'm a huge nerd (yet again)

I had the stirring revelation today that I like the journal Nature better than the journal Science... disappointing blog posting, isn't it?

So I was watching the weather channel this morning as I do every morning when an unfamiliar commercial appeared on my screen saying something about life depending on one more yard, etc... Intrigued, I stopped rummaging through my sock drawer to see where the story was going and was amused to find that the players on my screen were wearing little blue Duke helmets. I was even more amused when I realized the voice over was talking about the toughness and grit required to attack the gridiron, etc... Anyone who has watched a Duke football game in the last decade or so can appreciate the hilarity in this as watching Duke play is somewhat similar to going to a high school football game (and we're not talking about the state championship game, either...) The best part, however, was yet to come: Apparently, this year's motto or theme or whatever for Duke football is... (drumroll) BLUE COLLAR!!!!!

Duke. Blue collar. Seriously.

That ought to keep me going for awhile :)
