And then, depression set in...

When I say depression, I don't mean the real kind, so don't worry.  I am talking about a more frustrating kind of depression.  One that is horribly more cruel and taunting.  This, quite possibly, is as bad as having to wait for another Star Wars film to come out.  As most of you know, I have been dutifully enjoying my first taste of the series 24.  Season 1.  I made it through 23 hours, 48 minutes...then BAM!  Error, cannot read the DVD.  So I tried another program...BAM!  Another program, BAM!  I even installed VLC media player (and that thing can read ANYTHING) BAM BAM BAM!  So here I am, about 6 minutes short of know what freaking happened at the end!  I can't watch Hulu here.  Anyone have any suggestions?  I have the season 2-7 disks, does anyone know if they re-cap season one at the beginning of season 2?  I don't have enough bandwidth to stream it, either.  This stinks!  I won't watch another season until I finish this first one, either!  De-press-shone (as Cajun man would say)!

Todays Cubs Trivia question:  Who holds the Cubs record for most games pitched in a single season by a left-hander?

Well, today was a rather expensive day.  I bought pre-paid phones for my team with minutes and sim cards...actually, I already had the phones, just had to get the cards and minutes.  It is worth it to be able to get a hold of them during the day.

Elections are coming soon, so I am anxiously awaiting whatever might happen.  Nobody wants to commit to anything on the Iraqi side.  They are just waiting to see what happens.  So that is kind of what us advisors have to do.  Luckily for us, sitting around and basically doing nothing comes rather easy...

I need to get going...watching my son play soccer on DVD!

Later all.

  2. Hi Jeff,
    I hadn't seen one second of 24 until this season. I'm taping it now and, of course, I'm hooked. I don't think I'll get to the past seasons because Mia won't let me have the Netflix password. Keep the Cubs trivia coming, I'm bound to get one right.
