My computer died. I will be getting a new one, but obviously no full posts until then (I'm posting this from work right now).

Upcoming posts:
Boy Meets World
The Adventures of Pete and Pete
Smart Games Puzzle Challenge 3/Princess Maker 2/Spelling Jungle

Probably some other posts in between if I get bored, etc.
The Boy Meets World post is coming up right as soon as I get my new computer though.
Preview:
Eric: I have a question that I'm going to need a yes or no answer to. How many people get into Yale each year?
Mr. George Feeny: No.

Miss Kelly: All right. The name of the place where the eggs are stored.
Cory: What are... the gonads?
Miss Kelly: No, sorry, I was looking for "What are the ovaries?"
Cory: Oh, the o... yeah, I always mix those two up.
Miss Kelly: Try not to; your future will be brighter. Can you tell us anything about ovulation or how pregnancy occurs?
Cory: Well, the man's got the sperm and the woman's got the egg. Now, once a month an egg slides down the "Phillippine tube" towards the uterus.
Cory: The first sperm to reach the egg wins. It gets a medal, it's born, ya name 'em "Cory", ya push 'em out the door, and nothing makes sense for the rest of his life.
Miss Kelly: Well, congratulations; you seem to have a thorough understanding of the life cycle.
Cory: Hey, I live it!

Mr. George Feeny: [Rachel, Eric, Cory and Topanga are playing the Fiancè Game, and Mr. Feeny has been selected to read the questions] Okay, Rachel, what is Eric's favorite fish?
Rachel McGuire: Umm... penguin!
Mr. George Feeny: No, I don't think you understand...
Eric: [Flips up paper with the word penguin written on it] BAM!
Rachel McGuire: Oh, do I know my man?
Eric: It's like we share the same brain.

Alright, that's enough.

Haha! Andrew blew the lid off this whole operation, now I know about it, and soon everyone from Duane to Little Henry will know it! I kid. Here is a brief list of the things you missed in the Salinas/Monterey area this weekend: Miscellaneous people who wanted to ask you about Georgia, heat, and being an actuary/a 5 hour endurance fest of me and Andrew attempting to beat Waluigi and Baby Mario on "intense" mode, the real shot to the gut is we never did/we listened to your 2 cds of super 10s whilst playing Mario Tennis/a wedding largely devoid of controversy, unfortunatly, I guess everyone's getting old and sad/ Johnny goading Andrew into dancing/ a substandard version of Marvin Gaye's Let's Get it On by me/ an intense singalong of "Pour some sugar on me" led by my brother/awkward wedding dinner conversation/Sean's fiancee/Ben, my sisters son, flipping out on a regular basis/ chaos in general.

Yeah, so I guess it wasn't THAT great, but it was fun, and it would have been more fun if you were there. Hopefully Sean's wedding will be a barnburner.

Anyway, I particularly enjoyed your post on the gameboy version of Bases Loaded. The missing label and the little screw where that label should be bring up warm memories. I found your yearbook responses to be a bit harsh, where's the sincerity? Also your post on Boy Meets World has inspired me to take a second look at the show, considering the last time I watched it, even in passing, was 4 or more years ago. Anyways, that's about all there is of that. Looking forward to seeing you in August. By the way, I won't actually tell any of the relatives about this site, besides Little Henry, he's sitting right next to me. I kid.

Greg, it makes me happy to have found this blog. I've missed hearing you discourse on obscure pieces of information.
