Sorry for the lack of updates lately. I just haven't had anything to say lately. I still have nothing to say, but I thought something would come to me if I just made myself start writing. Wow this sucks.

OK, so this is pointless and random, but last night I was watching TV and there was a commercial on for Fidelity Investments. It showed this woman who was wearing the biggest, ugliest glasses I have ever seen. It was shocking. They were HUGE - the biggest glasses I've ever seen on a person. Also, the glasses were blue - frames, lenses and all. Man those were some damn, ugly glasses. I was just stunned by the hideousness of these glasses.

Speaking of TV I watched last night, Friends was surprisingly good. I was expecting the big birth episode to be lame, but it was very entertaining. ER was also OK. It was quite a stretch as far as realism is concerned, but I couldn't be more thrilled that Carter and Abby are finally hooking up. It's about damn time.

Man this sucks. I wish there was some way I could compensate all my readers for the time you are wasting by reading this drivel. I just shouldn't write when I have nothing to say. Perhaps it's because I haven't yet recovered from watching my beloved Montreal Canadiens go through one of the worst collapses in the history of sports. I still can't believe they blew a third period three goal lead in game 4. After that devastating loss, they just flat out sucked. I'm just sick over the whole thing.

OH YEAH!!! I just thought of something I've been meaning to bitch about for the past 2 weeks. So, a couple of home-stands ago I bought some nachos at the Redhawks game. I'd never had them there before, but you generally can't go wrong with nachos so what the hell. So I pay the chick then wait patiently as I watch this woman alphabetize the chips. Finally she hands them over and the little cheese cup was about 1/4 full. I'm not exaggerating. That was it. We're talking about a half inch or so of cheese with no extra dumped on top. I said "You've got to be kidding me, give me more cheese." She says "That's all I can give you. You can have more for for fifty cents." I said "That's ridiculous! There's only enough cheese there for 3 chips." Then she says she's sorry and just following the rules and I said "I've been to a lot of sporting events in my life and this is by far the biggest rip off I have ever seen." Now if I had been thinking, I would have then demanded a refund. But I was just in total shock, so instead I took my nachos down to my seat and had people in two sections cracking up at my tirade. I just can't believe how dumb the Redhawks concessions people are. They could charge more for nachos and load em up with cheese and people would be much happier. Everyone expects to get ripped off for food at sporting events. So, what you get is really more important than how much the thing costs. I paid about 2 bucks more for nachos in Texas this season but I was thrilled to death with my purchase because there was so much cheese, I could have bathed in it. It was just great. Plus, the thing was so huge, I couldn't even finish them all. I just can't tell you how outraged I was over my nacho experience at the Redhawks. Stupid bastards. Give me some damn cheese!!!

Whew, ok so maybe the nacho story salvaged this update. Probably not, but I tried. Oh well. I'm outta here. Hopefully I'll be back to my normal talkative self soon. Later.
