Green-Eyed Monster

Another eight hours last night, after a nap late yesterday. And I do feel better. Today, I'll ease myself back into work.

Yesterday was so wonderfully humdrum that there's really no way to make an entry out of it.

Thanks to Chris Walsh (chris_walsh) who wrote to let me know that the US Army is dropping the whole silly "Army of One" thing. Now maybe people will stop hearing a cryptofascist subtext in "Species of One." To quote the latimes.com:

In its battle to win the hearts and minds of recruiting-age Americans, the Army is replacing its main ad slogan — "An Army of One" — with one it hopes will pack more punch: "Army Strong."

Personally, I think "Army: Die, Die, Die" would attract more recruits.

I snurched this quiz from setsuled, 'cause that's just the sort of nixar I am:

Your Envy Quotient: 78%

You are quite the jealous person, even if you don't know it.
And the true bummer is: you're too envious to really appreciate what you have going on.
Just remember, no one has the perfect life. So love the one you have!
