Misc.

You know, I think this is the longest I've gone without updating in months.

Anyway, I'll give the whole account of my activities last week probably tonight. It'll take a while to write up.

It's snowing. Less than a week till the first day of Spring and it's f---ing snowing. Ugh, I hate Nebraska winters.

It's "Bloody Rome Week" on the Discovery Channel. I missed the Colosseum and gladiator shows last night. :-( The rest of this week's lineup sounds good. On Monster House tonight, they're doing a Roman House. Tomorrow night, it'll be Seven Wonders of Ancient Rome. Wednesday is a double-header: Spear of Jesus and a repeat of the Anthony and Cleopatra: Battle at Actium episode of Moments in Time. I miss that show. I guess they're treating it as a bunch of specials shown occasionally instead of a series. Whatever, at least James Woods is still on TV, even if it's only in reruns. Thursday has Barbarians: The Battle for Rome. And finally, Friday has a repeat of Monster House. Personally, I think they could show a lot more Roman-themed shows.

Two points to anyone who knows why the Discovery Channel is doing "Bloody Rome Week" this week.

Re: ummm..
Nope. Hint: It has to do with yesterday's date.

A category that should be seen on Jeopardy:

"I'd like 'Things You Don't See in Memphis' for 200, please, Alex."

"...and the answer is..."

"This is the season typiclaly filled with snow, ice, and generally cold weather."

*player buzzes*

"What is winter?"

"That is correct. You have control of the board, please pick the next category."

Yepper. :-) March 15, 44 BC. Gaius Julius Caesar does his impression of a pincushion. Too bad it's a once-in-a-lifetime performance.
