Le Chiffre est mort



Now what I am I going to use as an excuse to continue refusing to donate money to my alma mater (juris doctorally speaking)? I guess I still have a couple fallbacks, such as the fact that I pay taxes, dammit, and I'll be paying for law school for another 20 friggin years.

Let's see. That's three years of law school, one summer ruined by studying for the bar exam, nine months of practicing law, and twelve and a half years of being a writer/editor. And a 30 year payment plan. Sure, deciding to go law school instead of grad school to study southeast Asian politics worked out great. Actually, that course of action probably would have had more than its share of disasters, as well. Although I would have studied southeast Asian politics at NIU, whose mascot is a huskie dog named Victor E. Oh well, road not taken, etc. etc., and so forth.

In meta news of the blog, in one week, we'll reach the one-year anniversary of the commencement of Stronger Than Dirt Pete Moss as an honored symbol of pointless blog nonsense. (Not a mascot! Honored symbol! Honored symbol! Honored symbol!) In other words, CBRAT turns one year old. Maybe I'll update the template in celebration of that occasion. Or not. Probably not.

POSTSCRIPT: I haven't seen the new "Casino Royale" flick yet, but I'm 100 percent sure that this version will remain my favorite, no matter what. Does the new one have Peter Sellers? No? Forget it, then.

So... Chef Illiniwek is gone. Will the "PC Police" go after Sambo's restaurant next? I mean, come on, people! If I didn't live 1000 miles away, and wasn't really lazy, I might stop my non-existent alumni support of the U of I... although if I had ever supported them, I would have boycotted them after they bulldozed Nature's Table. Now where will I go to see Corndolly and a pre-World Series appearing Liz Phair?

Ah, the Pro from Dover checks in. Be warned, Des-traught, this is anti-Chief country in this blog. I feel safe to say that now that it's a fait accompli.

This blog is also against leaving injured friends for dead in your car after drunk driving accidents, in case you were wondering, but I don't suppose you are getting a lot of Illinois Basketball news out there in Live Wholesale or Die territory. If that's the case, I envy ye.

Now excuse me while I go "leave a comment" in the American Standard down the hall, in advance of my ritualistic Turdsday viewing of Earl and Office on NBC. I was not paid for this plug.
