Amusing morning

Went to the dentist this morning. Witnessed a classic move: Just as the dentist was about to dive in he snagged the remote, wheeled around to the stereo and knocked it up a notch. On the radio? The Who's "Baba O'Riley." Go time.

* I've been writing a lot of nature/ag/enviro stuff lately. Cool news for Waynesboro is the opening of a stretch of river to trout fishing.

Also recent: Big pumpkins, Dog wheelchair, Road rage

* WSJ had some good stuff today. Turns out the new biodegradable Sun Chips bag was too noisy, so they're scrapping it. Also interesting was their recent report on new ocean species and a new language in India. They also reported that an average baseball broadcast has 14 minutes of action. About 68% of baseball broadcasts show "standing around."

* Speaking of baseball, Todd Zeile had an odd career. Who knew?

* Mastiffs are still sweet. (pic)

Katie and I stay busy this weekend with the art show of the season around here. Chase and I are headed to St. Petersburg for a journalism conference in a couple weeks. And we're trying to carve out Halloween in Athens, OH.

Phenomenal post.

When I lived with my brother this spring and we'd go grocery shopping, I would incessantly annoy him with the Sun Chips bags. It's an onomatopoeia-defying sound. "Harvest Cheddar?" FFRAAAHAHAFLKJ:ERPOI! "Ya." "You sure? How bout French Onion?" FRAAAHAHAHA:FAJOPIFWEJ." "Whatever." "...ooo, Garden Salsa!" FRAJFSPOIFJPOH "I DON'T CARE!"

Although Katie would say I aggressively avoid grocery shopping, each time I do go, I find something interesting. Martin's plays surprisingly rocking music. Kroger doesn't sell all the Wheat Thins flavors, etc. And at the discount grocery two days back, the cashier lauded our selection of Snyders Onion Mustard pretzels. The big bag at $1.79 was "less than the little bags a 7-Eleven ... they're a $1.99."

I too can attest to the obnoxiously loud Sun Chips bags. They are obnoxiously and startlingly loud.
