The wait for cookies 1.31.8

The receipe for my favorite Girl Scout Cookies are available here.

Riding the Elevator makes you smart 1.31.8

The rides to the 20th floor at work have some captive audience devices that give scrolling headlines, weather, sports and news from around the World. Well some of the stories are "yeah right, a dog saved the owner by dragging him out of his burning house" or "cat dials 9-1-1 to save the child home alone". Well, an interesting one that may have some urban myths about how people with blue eyes are mutants. Article here.

Addictive Game

Good luck trying to get through this game. Chainfactor.

Packers games for 2008

The games at Green Bay: AWAY
Chicago Bears Chicago Bears
Detroit Lions Detroit Lions
Minnesota Vikings Minnesota Vikings
Atlanta Falcons New Orleans Saints
Carolina Panthers Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Dallas Cowboys Seattle Seahawks
Houston Texans Jacksonville Jaguars
Indianapolis Colts Tennessee Titans

Pretty good teams if you ask me.

The game against the Giants was not fun to watch. It was tough to get excited after watching Marquette get routed by Uconn but not much I could do. It must have been tough to sit through the cold and get a swift kick from the playoffs in OT after an ill advised throw. The only consolation is that Washington and Oakland fans can only wonder what is going on with their teams.

Making a living 1.8.8

One way to make a nice living. Local millionaire gives something back the community college.

I wonder what tips he would give people. I wonder if he applied any of these secrets of getting rich.

Flash game 1.5.8

An addictive flash game to get to the 16th floor. Click the stairs. and then worry about the other levels with later cursors.
Learning to type. A lesson in typing.
Disable the bombs. Light up all of the lights but using the lasers.

Nice pay day 1.4.8

I would think you would be a little smarter with your cash. Drug lord is caught with a mountain of cash. Sure a bank has that whole paper trail thing, but seriously where are all of the coins?

Old Misc Links I had bookmarked and I'm looking to clean up or where I've been in 2007, but with no comments or thoughts.

Twisted Would you rather 1.4.8

or

Have a broken bone, for a month. A terrible pain for that month.

Happy New Year 1.1.8

Happy New Year! Hope everyone had a good time ringing in 2008. So long 2007. Predictions? Expectations? Best of '07?
