If you are a big fan of Lil' Wayne - You might be stupid.

 "A California Tech student has matched music preferences to US high school marks, and come up with correlations that will send brainiacs scurrying for their iPods.

PhD student Virgil Griffith’s “somewhat unscientific” study showed the smartest students listened to Beethoven, Counting Crows and Sufjan Stevens. Radiohead and Ben Folds Five also appealed to big brains."

Well I don't like Lil Wyane but my Love of Tom Petty puts me at about 1080.

I'm glad they cut two and didn't decide to extend it a week and I like the ability of the judges to bring someone back. Chris Daughtry would have won if the judges could do that back then. Very happy with the two that went home, I really was not a Jorge fan. Adam Lambert is amazing.

Got My Wii

My excuse for not posting anything meaningful today is twofold:

1 - I am getting a cold
2 - I got my Wii today and I decided to do ski-jumping on the Wii instead (Professional!)
So you get - Lex Luthor Bailout courtesy of Funny or Die. Starring - Jon Hamm.

Stupid work is getting in the way of me posting anything meaningful, so instead you get childish humor from me. This is a city council meeting in Ohio and shenanigans ensue.

Punta Cana

Has anyone been to Punta Cana and, if so, can you recommend a place to stay?  I'm going to the DR for work at the end of the month and I'd like to hang out at the beach for a couple of days.  Thanks!

I hope all you DC people have been able to dig yourself out of the snow and go back to work. Today is again cloudy and rainy in London. I found a new quiz - How likely are you to have a tapeworm - I am 34%

What are your chances of getting a tapeworm?

There are two things I like about this.

1 - It does a good job explaining visually what started the situation we are in

2 - I am so impressed with Jonathan Jarvis' thesis on exploring the use of new media to make sense of complex issues

Chelsea Hightower & Dimitri & Layce from SYTYCD is now one of the dancers on Dancing with the Stars. Glad the turn on the good show got her work on a mediocre show.

I am shocked by the amount of turds last night!  I am also shocked Tatyanna is votefortheworst.com's pick- I think she was in the top 5!  If she makes it thorugh it will prove to be a horrible season with votefortheworst calling the shots.  How awesome was it when Simon shot down Bucky Covington- i almost peed my pants laughing and snorting.  I'm so glad idol is back!

Weekend in Paris

Paris VacationMy plan for 2009 while here is that once a month I end up going somewhere in europe where I haven't been before. February starts the trend and we started easy with Paris. I got a great deal from lastminute.com on the eurostar and hotel so I took 3 days in Paris. It was mostly rainy and freezing, but I got a little bit of the city (not even close to enough) and now I can say I at least have seen some of Paris.

Day 1 - I took the eurostar down to Paris, which is great because 1 - It is one stop from my house and 2 - It drops you right in the middle of Paris so you can take the metro to where you need to go. 

Of course I start off getting off the metro and walking exactly the wrong direction to my hotel, but after about 15 minutes of walking around I found it.  dropped off my stuff and went back out.

If they just stayed little like this

A few days late but OMG! 30 Rock just keeps getting better. The telenovela - Jon Hamm as the perfect man. I have to say besides It's Always Sunny this is the only show I end up laughing until tears.

Pediatric Restless Leg Syndrome. He looks like a cartoon Pilot.

Brilliant. 

It can only get better and at least today is pretty

The summer I moved here it ended up being pretty cold and only really got to 65 all summer instead of the 80-90 that I experienced the last summer I was in London. The fall was normal but this winter was colder then it has been in a while and today it snowed more then it has in 18 years. All buses are closed and most of the tube is shut down. So I walked around my neighborhood and got some great photos of the snow. I take this as a turning point while the weather is cold, it is really pretty.
