Weathering an arctic blast

Well, I can now say I've been through a midwest snowstorm.

When I left the Union from studying last night, there was a light dusting of snow on the ground, but when I woke up this morning to walk outside, the dusting had become a mid-calf high blanket.

I heard there was a storm system that came through the Great Lakes and New England area which brought all this snow, and a couple hundred flights out of O'Hare got cancelled last night. Hopefully things will clear up by the time I leave on Friday.

Here, by popular demand...'s the Stimmel Dance (this presentation brought to you by Ryan Klemick)!

Does anybody watch ESPN Sunday Morning Countdown? Familiar with The Mayne Event? Basically, it's just Kenny Mayne doing a segment of pure idiocy...which had some Cowboys significance today. He was sitting at a restaurant in Brooklyn with members of Sopranos cast, talking about Cowboys offensive assistant head coach Tony Sparano, and then they cut to a re-enactment of the final episode of the Sopranos in the diner, with Tony Sparano waiting while various people came in, including one very special cameo by a rather well-known resident of Dallas (I totally giggled with glee when I saw it). It shows Witten sitting at a booth in biker gear and a bandana, and Romo also walks in and starts to glance around menacingly. One of the Cowboys cheerleaders (who has trouble parking her car in standard ditzy girl fashion), serves as the Meadow role. It's freaking money, and as soon as I can find a video, I'm going to post it up here on my blog for all to enjoy.

By Jove, I've figured it out

It occurred to me today, as I dined on a delictable Chinese culinary masterpiece, the meaning behind some contemporary musical stylings:

Rock - songs about a girl you really want to screw

Rap and Hip Hop - songs about a girl you are about to screw or in the process of screwing

Country - songs lamenting about a girl you can't screw anymore
