He can talk!

Explorer just crashed and ate the whole post I just wrote!! Fucking A!

Here's the short version.

1. Title references "Planet of the Apes: The Musical" from The Simpsons.

2. I am very stupid for scheduling a business trip this Sunday, effectively making me miss my beloved Patriots play in the Super Bowl. I'll get to watch it on DVR next Friday after I get back.

3. Saw this on Post Secret and I liked it enough to post it here:

4. I'm excited for Lost to come back this Thursday, and watching reality TV in the mean time. Actually enjoying The Celebrity Apprentice for the ridiculous egos and how The Donald kisses up to people who are famous, even if they're less famous than he.

Sorry, but I don't have the energy to rewrite that in a modestly entertaining way.

5. And my iPod brought up what may be my absolute favorite piece of music ever in the whole world. Beethoven's 9th Symphony, 3rd movement. Maybe it's cliche since the 9th is so famous, but listen to that movement and tell me it's not heartbreakingly beautiful.

As suggested by The Rowdy Theologian in the comments to my last post over one month ago, I'm symbolically not blogging to show support for the Writers Guild of America and their strike. Non-symbolically, I haven't been blogging because my life is boring and there's nothing to say. Life is okay, holidays were good. The house is great but cold. There's nothing on TV (thus contributing to my lack of posts), and Ohio State got humiliated in the National Championship Game by an SEC team for the second year in a row. All this makes for a very uninspired Reed. I fill the hours now by playing Scrabulous on Facebook. I love it, but I mostly play against my genius friend who beats me every time, thus killing my win-loss percentage. So if you know how to find me there, stop by and play Scrabble with me.
