I'm posting in my journal, following tweets, watching The Daily Show on TV and the live feed of the NY Senate, all at once. Of course, these are all sedentary tasks, which is because I am too weary to rise and do anything useful.

The Diamondbacks won tonight, making 7 away games in a row, which is BEYOND awesome for my 'Backs! (We haven't done that since 2002, apparently.)

Marriage equality just passed 33-29! How wonderful! Only 44 states to go!

Rosanne Cash answered my Tweet. She's so cool. :)

The MGM Mascot presides over the corner of Tropicana and Las Vegas Boulevard:

New Maru Vid -- at least, it was new to me. I got a kick out of it, anyway; but I couldn't figure out how to embed from this site...

I like the new Evo ad which advertises the speed of its phone by saying "you can now upload EVEN MORE CATS!" They understand the primary importance of the Internets, apparently. :D

Today I had my mid-year performance review and was roundly complimented by my new supervisor for my speed, assistance, and other coolness. *preens*

Am sad to hear about Peter Falk, though. I can't remember a time when I didn't love him on TV or in the movies. The original In-Laws has to be one of the greatest comedies ever made, and largely because he was in it. So now I have to watch it again.

I don't remember if we ever got a chance to indoctrinate framefolly to this movie... it explains so much about our little group.

Nifty stuff.

Your 'Backs are doing better than my 'Stros. I didn't think they could suck much worse than last year. Then came this season.

I just saw on my Facebook feed about NY! SO HAPPY! Now if only I lived in one of those states...

Peter Falk will always be the grandfather in The Princess Bride to me. Is my "Hi, I'm a child of the 80s" showing enough?

The "now you can upload even MORE cats!" ad is AWESOME. Brilliant marketing strategy. Obviously they get that Cat videos are EXACTLY what the interwebs are for. Isn't that what Al Gore said when he created it?

Finally: WOO! at the great performance review! The one good thing about not working: the only performance reviews come from yourself and your therapist. ;)

I'm just glad to see us finally have a winning season -- that hasn't happened since we managed the World Series, a decade ago!

Yeah, I know; Barb and I are probably never going to be legal in our home state!

I'm older than you -- I grew up with Columbo! But The In-Laws (the REAL one, not the craptastic remake) is one of the most awesome movies ever.

Oh, Maru. Never change.

I'm very proud to have an Evo phone. (Even if it's not that Evo phone.) I also like the ad about the phone that lets you do all kinds of things in a hurry, so you can get back to playing Angry Birds.

Congrats on the good review. :-)

You're the second person today to laud The In-Laws.

And most importantly of all, what did you and Rosanne Cash twitter about?

I <3 Maru!

I haven't seen the Angry Birds one.


The In-Laws rocks. We're watching it now!

She initially tweeted about the NY ruling, and some idiot asked her the usual stupid "that means you're for incest/polygamy/animal marriage too" stuff, and she responded to that idiot in her usual gracious way ("of course not, I only have 140 characters here"), and I told her "Some morons need you to say 'two consenting adults should be allowed to marry.' The rest of us know what you meant. You rock." She responded with a couple of XX kisses. :)

We also tweeted once about the use of umlauts. She's quite erudite! She did a whole series of tweets as "Jane Austin at the Superbowl" on Superbowl Sunday.

you can now upload EVEN MORE CATS
It's probably just as well that I *don't* have a smartphone.

What cracks me up is the evolution of the MGM lion. Could it have *been* any uglier?

Re: you can now upload EVEN MORE CATS
It is pretty hideous. I never saw it when it looked like that. (Was just reading that they changed it because Asian patrons refused to enter through the main lobby there because it's bad luck to enter a lion's mouth!)

You're probably right about that having a smart phone thing. I have a sad, horrible addiction to Twitter, so having a phone would just make that WORSE.
