Is it me, or is the world getting dumber?

I must admit that in my past, I had the fortune to graduate from college. Twice. Not that I'm actually using either of the degrees I have, but that's beside the point. The point of today's post is that I like to read the class notes in my alumni news just to see what people are naming their children. Then I wonder what's wrong with the parents for coming up with the names that they do.

Case in point... got one of the alumni news magazines today and looked through it. Saw that one of my professors got to take part in a Native American burial ceremony for some remains he discovered. Then I went for the birth announcements. After wading through countless pieces of fluff names, I came across one young couple that was blessed with twin boys. I just want to know what the heck they were thinking when they chose the names... Are you ready for this? They named the boys Dakota Doc and Canyon Jack.

I'm sorry, but those names would be appropriate for a couple desperados out in the Old West somewhere. I shudder to think what those two little boys are going to go through as they grow up.

What a load of....

For some reason unknown even to myself, I like to get a daily tarot card reading in my email. I also like to read them late in the day to see what type of day I was supposed to have had.

Here's today's tarot reading: Love: The Moon; Touchstone: The Sun; Career: The Emperor

Today the Sun meets up with the Moon in the heavens of your emotions, and this celestial marriage is making you radiant and full of love! Your longings are being fulfilled, love is welcoming you with open arms, and your infectious love of life is creating an atmosphere of mutual bliss. You couldn't wish for better cards for a day full of love and fulfillment. At work, you radiate confidence and capability all day long. Under the protection of the Sun and the Emperor, business discussions and agreements lead to definite success. Take advantage of the day's positive influence to cement your position or expand your sphere of influence in this area of your life...

I wonder what the people that write these are smoking sometimes. I am at work and am constantly fighting the urge to tell people what I really think of them. Especially my annoying little coworker who wouldn't know what "Shut the fuck up" means even if you spell it out for him.

As for radiating love and all that crap... I may be radiating something today. It ain't love. It may just be plain old gamma radiation or something. Hmm... sounds like fun. Time to Hulk out....

The mascot has a name

From my post on November 4th, I decided to use the picture of the Sky Dragon as my mascot. I also made a statement about a name for him. Well, only one person suggested a name for him. Thank you, Christian, for your ideas.

My Sky Dragon mascot is "Pouth, the Coney Antiped". It's now official.

I'm slightly bored right now... can you tell?

Oh for the love of Pete!

I just totally forgot what I was going to say here tonight. Arrrgh!!!!

It's another incredibly dull night at work. I've got just shy of 4 hours left of my shift and I want to run screaming out the door from sheer boredom. I've got all the paperwork that doesn't involve shift change/deposits done. I'm almost through with all the stuff I like to do online, so I may just have to raid my backpack for something to do.

Oh, yeah... there's a frat party or something going on in the back tonight. Whee.

I don't know why I like this guy

I found him in a book of clipart I got for cheap at Beans & Noodles. The caption says it is a Sky Dragon out of Serpentum et Draconium Historie from 1640. I want to know what the inspiration for it was.

Now that I have thought about it a little bit... I think it's his expression that I like.

I may just make him my mascot. He just needs a name now...
