I think, that after watching 24 for 4+ seasons in such a short period of time, I have a new drinking game...That game would be called "Protocol." Every time you hear the word Protocol, you have to drink. And, I dare say, you would probably be dead by alcohol poisoning by the end of the one hour show if you did so... I have never, in all my years of Government service, ever heard the word protocol used so much. Over-used so much. And I want to know how so many people, in classified areas, are allowed to use their cell phones? There are reasons cell phones aren't allowed in classified areas...and for the most part, don't even work in those areas. I am not saying that I am NOT hooked on 24...just that none, I repeat, NONE of this could EVER happen. Except maybe an incompetent boob for a president...you gots to love TV.
Today should be a short day...not much happens on a Saturday. Especially when there is no class in session. Class doesn't start up until Monday, so even Sunday will be slow. Sometimes I really enjoy the Iraqi pace...slow and not-so-steady! Sometimes living out your own personal Groundhog Day is not so bad, since you get to try what works, learn from your mistakes, and then apply those lessons tomorrow. Small bites...Plebe year trained me well.
I did, finally, get my USB 5.1 sound card in...so, in conjunction with my 5.1 speakers, I now have 24 in 5.1 surround sound thunder! I now need to find myself a DVD that takes advantage of it! You have to love good sound. The music sounds awesome.
I need to get some stuff done before work.
