i know the new cast is to be younger, but these guys don't look human. i guess it is airbrushing. oh wait, only one of them is human anyway.
so, what do we think about the upcoming new star trek movie?

in general, things are going pretty well. this semester is looking to be quite interesting and through the course of it i will be working to get a couple of papers published. a paper from last semester has been reworked and is well on its way to being submitted for publication. fingers crossed.
the inauguration was great to watch, i am glad to have shared that with my daughter. the oscar noms are coming out and i could care less.

Police have arrested a Greenfield man for allegedly arranging to sell his 14-year-old daughter into marriage in exchange for $16,000, 100 cases of beer and several cases of meat.people are nuts.
Police said they only learned of the deal after the 36-year-old man went to them to get his daughter back because payment wasn't made as promised. The man was arrested Sunday on suspicion of human trafficking.
i wonder if the girl realizes that the phone can be used to talk.

tvsquad commented that their pay raises were such small potatoes (average $100,000 per episode) compared to charlie sheen's topping $825,000 for two and a half men. but that's okay. we're talking different shows and different situations. i'm sure these guys aren't hurting too bad with $100,000 per episode.

the list suggests that academia is the way to go. my guess is that with fewer job opps available, school enrollment is promising.
also, no surprise that the worst jobs are what they are.
this is a word, according to the urban dictionary. defriending, however, seems silly.

there were 28 homicides in the city last year, compared with 49 in 2007, 28 in 2006 and 61 in 2005. other local cities have also had a decrease.
one can wonder what is on the horizion.

I knew a blonde that was so stupid that....
she called me to get my phone number.
she tried to drown a fish.
she tripped over a cordless phone.
when she heard that 90% of all crimes occur around the home, she moved.
this one i received a while ago:
There is a new study about women and how they feel about their asses; the results were pretty interesting:
30% of women think their ass is too fat ...
10% of women think their ass is too skinny ...
The remaining 60% say they don't care, they love him, he's a good man,
and they wouldn't trade him for the world.
ditto for this one: I love this Doctor.
Q: I've heard that cardiovascular exercise can prolong life; is this true?
A: Your heart is only good for so many beats, and that 's it... don't waste them on exercise. Want to live longer? Take a nap.
Q: Should I reduce my alcohol intake?
A: No, not at all. Wine is made from fruit. Brandy is distilled wine, that means they take the water out of the fruity bit so you & get even more of the goodness that way. Beer is also made out of grain. Bottoms up!
Q: Aren't fried foods bad for you?
A: YOU'RE NOT LISTENING!!!.... Foods are fried these days in vegetable oil. In fact, they're permeated in it. How could getting more vegetables be bad for you?
Q: Is swimming good for your figure?
A: If swimming is good for your figure, explain whales to me.
i've been working on my spring class, syllabus, etc. the class is juvenile delinquency (not one of my favorites).
