While You Were at the Bar 8/19

News you can use:

A hurricane warning has been issued for southwest Florida as Tropical Storm Fay approaches. Fay crossed Key West on Monday, bringing winds near 60 mph and flooding some roads.

The push is on for Barack Obama to announce his pick for VP. The Democratic convention convenes in Denver next Monday, August 25th and there is no clear front runner so far.

Under increasing pressure, Pakistan's president Pervez Musharraf has resigned. Musharraf took power in 1999 in a bloodless coup but has recently felt the pressure from the rest of his country. The chairman of the upper house of the National Assembley will serve as president until a new one is chosen.

News you can lose:


- Ashley is 100% correct in that the diving commentator sounds like Nancy Grace, and I can't stand it. This weekend she said 'that arc needs to go away.' Puke.

- During the dives, when the girls are essentially folded over, noses to knees, that IS NOT a flattering angle. At all. I don't care who you are.

- Poor Nastia coming so close but having to pretend to be happy with silver.

- Did y'all read dooce about Michael Phelps and her Top Five? So funny.

- Wow, Misty May and Kerri Walsh winning AGAIN! Those girls wear white outfits, which I would not be happy about!

More news you can use:

Since my degree has the word SCIENCE on it, I decided to put on my lab coat and try out the three egg cooking directions that were suggested (my mom emailed me one on the sly). Three eggs, all from the same carton, cooked up three ways. And the one that peeled the best? (Drumroll please!) Pen's Boil For 18 Minutes Egg! Yay, Pen! I will thank you many times over the next time HBE are called for! PS: Take a note, Niki, should you ever find yourself needing to cook an egg, drunk or not.

Word of the Day:

(noun): a mixture; a medley

I just loved watching the U.S. swimmers in the 400 Individual melange (IM)!

Poor Nastia. That whole thing annoyed me.

But I win the HBE GOLD, so it's all good!

Did I at least get a silver?
