Grizzly Homicides

Well, this is it. I have designated Sunday as Sid Day. My day of rest. My designated blogging day ( I might be able to ramp up production again once the Great Oppressors stop freaking me out with the demands of Great Oppressor existence, but for now that's all I can commit to). My day to sink my weary head into my favorite pillow and wonder if anything of interest will happen around here. Unlikely.

Here is what J has been up to lately. People keep asking her what she is up to and she really can't think of much to say other than "working on the thesis." Here is a quote to shed some light on her project.

"This emphasis on local collaboration is viewed by Weber (2000) as a practical approach in an age where population increases and demands for recreational opportunities make it apparent that humans are not living separately from nature nor are viewing it purely as a resource for exploitation. Analyses of U.S. Census Bureau data from 1970, 1980, 1990, and 2000 compiled with data from the U.S. Geological Survey revealed that the majority of counties that contain federal lands experienced population growth larger than in counties without these types of lands regardless of metropolitan status or region (Frentz, Farmer, Guldin, & Smith, 2004)." - Great Oppressor J's Crappy Thesis Project that Will Never Be Finished. Blah blah blah blah blah blah.

I mean, honestly? SO BORING, and this is what she takes the computer up with ALL DAY when she isn't obsessively looking for jobs and watching promotional videos for a bidet. It's no wonder I haven't been able to keep up on the DogBlogoSphere. At least J still gets to grade student papers and find typos like this one...

"The film follows the police investigation of a grizzly homicide in 1950's Hollywood."

I need to go back to graduate school. Why does J get to have all the fun?

I like the "SARS" t-shirt. Do the Oppressors have matching Bird Flu track pants?

Yes, that is B's favorite hoody. He took great pride in wearing it to Asia last winter. Pretty dumb if you ask me. I just watched B clean the Opressor's fridge and I'm pretty sure that B and J have been trying to grow penicillin in preperation for the next outbreak...

Whoa--what movie is this? does the bear COMMIT the homicide or was he homicided? Is Stephen Colbert in your oppressor's class?

As for the thesis I'd highly recommend being a theorist--you get to just make crap up. Works for my mawma (though my onkel eric has been in gradual school awhile in lit so he makes stuff up about other people making stuff up. whew). those apes. when will they learn that life is meaningless so we all oughta sprawl out in the sunshine and rub each others bellies, maybe chew on some bully sticks


ps. i'm still worried about the poor grizzly.
