I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

Seriously, how did people function before the invention of coffee?

I think I have a problem with puns. Actually, I know I do. Part of my job here at the Wichita Eagle is coming up with headlines for the stories I read. And my first instinct is always to come up with a pun. To that end, I've used such winners as "Wind farm woes won't blow over" and "Chess, Wichita mated" and "Cruise bargains weigh anchor." Those are all ok, albeit a little corny. The real issue I'm having is having to come up with serious headlines. You just can't get away with writing headlines with "pope on a rope" or "surgery death leaves hospital in stitches." The higher ups just don't really appreciate it.

I turned in all of my remaning graduation paperwork yesterday. That means all I have to do now is pass the classes I'm in and I'm finally done in May. Finally. Finally. Finally. 17 years of schooling seems like enough for now. Of course, it also means that I'll have to figure out what I'm going to do with my life. Dang life choices.

I want Ben Lee's new album.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Aloha to all you young lovers out there. And you old ones too, although sometimes you're a bit creepier. Who wants to think about the effect Cialis has probably had on the Valentine's Day celebrations of octogenarians?

My stomach has been flip-flopping for the past couple of days, and not in that cute "the love of my life just walked by and winked at me" kind of way. It's more in the "I ate some bad chinese food and then drank a quart of whiskey" kind of way. Although, I've been abstaining from quarts of whiskey lately.

My diet probably hasn't helped however. I've been surviving the past week or so on chocolate, coffee, frozen burritos and peanuts. I love peanuts. No wonder my stomach lining is rebelling. I should get more ruffage.

Graduating is a tough business. You'd think they'd make it easier to get out of this place.
