I just updated my bio for the first time in a while. I added a little info regarding my faith I hadn't thought to post until recently.

Murd0c is my hero! I've been looking for this song for years, and he just picks it up out of nowhere for me. It was written about the first President Bush, but it's eerily appropriate again...

He fought bravely, but sadly Murd0c's experiment only made it to its 11th hour. He's a real trooper, though, and has vowed to try it again after some more training.


"Failure is not an option!"

I have a mystery prize put aside for him if he makes it. In the meantime, we have some more time to hype up the event. Don't call it a comeback!

In other news, I had one of the best phone calls I've had in a long time last night, with one of the most amazing people on the planet with whom to talk. I think it lasted around five hours, but it felt like one or two.

Now on to Hollywood. Kathy Griffin, who used to be my main celebrity crush back in the late 90s, looks nothing like herself after her plastic surgery and stuff. It's always so sad when someone who looks perfectly fine goes and carves themselves up to look like everyone else. Ah, well. I'm about due for a new unattainable celebrity crush anyway. Any ideas?

Here's a little song translation I banged out this morning. I've still got the mp3 up for now, as well. I plan to keep fiddling with the English version until it's singable. I'm trying to do it justice, as it's one of my favorite Spanish songs.

Don't be fooled by the Spanish I throw around, I'm far from bilingual. I can decode it much better than encode it. It's funny, my coworkers are mostly Latino, and some of them don't have great English. It's not uncommon for us to all be having some conversation, them speaking Spanish, me speaking English, and all of us understanding each other perfectly. It must look like Han and Chewie to passersby.

Murd0c's experiment is plugging away. He is truly brave, and he's got Cal's Forums and B3ta rooting for him. Send him some encouraging words, heaven knows he'll need them..
