Quick Hits

Some quick hits for today....

The media in the UK recently revealed that The Stig drives a #15,000 car, which isn't that surprising in and of itself but, come to think of it, it's probably the most brave act the man could commit. I mean, sure, maybe he drove a 007-style James Bond mobile down a snowy cliff in Switzerland but, think about it. If you worked with those three idiots would you drive a car to work at all? Heck, if it were me, I'd take the bus or walk. Drive a car? A reasonably priced car? To the set of Top Gear? That's really bravery right there, man. Go, Stiggy, Go!

No comments from me yet about the new Doctor Who, I know, I know. While I absolutely loved David Tennant (he's almost as cute as The Stig without his helmet on!) jury is still out on the new guy. I mean, for starters, what's up with the 80's style hair? What? Because Tennant had ruffles 'round his noggin, you gotta make the new guy do that too? Who knew bad '80's 'do's were so popular once again? Geesh, it's like a "Flock of Doctor Who's" or something. "I Ran (So Far Away)" in my little blue box. What's next? Are you going to make the poor kid look like a weasel? (Nevermind, don't answer that.)

TiVo hasn't been acting up. I had to endure Idol yet again last night, though it did manage to unboop an especially gory episode of Criminal Minds just as I was about to sit down and eat my dinner. (Who knew that fake Hollywood blood spatter on the ceiling looked so real from 15 feet away? Not me, that's for sure.)

Scriber's got a new 'baby coming in the parcel post and I just got an updated copy of the book. I'll post a link here as soon as Drive is finalized. Still, that's a lot of packages flying around the universe, don't you think? (And me without my Stig or a little blue box that flies.)

Until next time...
