I watched that new show Wipeout today, and let me tell you, there are not many things funnier than those guys bouncing off those jumbo red balls. It gets me every time.

Over the course of the past few weeks, I’ve fallen in love with Kina Grannis. Not literally, of course. If you haven’t heard of her, look her up and chances are she’ll make you smile.

I finally got around to buying an antenna in my cable-less room, so I can now watch television late at night laying on my bed. I tried it out for the first time last night, and within the first 5 minutes, I fell asleep. It felt good, though.

I thought the commercial was relevant. So here you go.

To Whom It May Concern:

To all of you who claim to be Lakers fans. To all of you throwing out those flags. To all of you jumping ship — please, don’t let the door hit your ass on the way out.

Where were you the past three years? Where were you when we missed the playoffs for only the 5th time in 60 years? Where were you when Kobe was on the brink of being traded? I understand fair-weather fans come with the territory. But to be completely honest, I don’t like you.

You don’t deserve to celebrate the success if you weren’t there to go through the failures. So jump off the bandwagon now, but when we come back next year — and we will, trust me — there won’t be any more room for you.

P.S. To those brand-new Celtics fans that seem to be popping up left and right — stop cheering and have a seat. You didn’t even know they existed a month ago. Your act is tired. Go Patriots.

Thanks for your time,
J Diaz

It turns out the headache I got from the seasick patch I used for a cruise last week will last about three weeks. A three week headache. That’s great. Remind me to never use one of those things again.

Does a hybrid sound really good to anyone else right now? I wonder how those Hummer owners are feeling. I would trade in that monstrosity while it still has some value.

If it’s not at least 5 miles away, I don’t really feel like going.

Price of gas: $4.54 (Let’s see how high this goes)

It’s not over. We’re going back to Boston. And the Lake Show is gonna have to play a lot better than that to pull it out. But that’s what they’re here for. Two more to go to make history and bring this thing home.

Did he just say what I think he said on national television? I for one, would actually like to see him spell the word he thought he was being given. Imagine the irony of losing the competition on that word.

I wonder why many more people don’t earn their degree by taking all their courses online. It may not be the best way to go, but I think it’s still effective. This summer marks my first experience with an online course and they’re so much more flexible in terms of when you want to study and how long you want to study for.

Biological Anthropology isn’t exactly my favorite or my best subject, but I’ve still found it to be interesting. Some of the basics that I’ve learned in years past have turned out to be so much easier to understand now than they were back then. I think as I’ve gotten older, I’ve become more willing to learn, not to mention I’m free from all the “distractions” involved with high school. There’s also the possibility that online courses are simply more effective than the banality involved in hearing the same professors day in and day out.

Whatever the case, an occasional change is good.
