i love making lists. of everything. seriously, look back through my blog and see how many bulleted lists i made. i also really need to have the items in a list in ABC order.
- i have an order for grocery shopping, which includes an order for how things go up on the conveyor belt. it actually makes my life easier. (eg: all cold things go first, so they will have more time in the bag so they won't spoil)
- i have gone to my church for its entire life. i know many people who have gone to the same church for their whole life, but not many who have gone to a church for the church's whole life.
- i think the world's greatest invention is the internet.
- i actually like ryan seacrest (not romantically, but the work that he does).
- i own no orange clothes.
- 97% of the music i listen to is from male artists.
here is espn's absurd sports quotes from 08. a few of my favorites:
25. "Then why are you covering the [Washington] Nationals?"
Speaker: Presidential candidate Ralph Nader
Context: Nader to The Washington Post, after the paper decided not to cover his presidential bid because he had no chance of winning.
Absurd because: Come to think of it, this quote makes perfect sense.
Numerical score: 0
(blogger's note: agreed. and the nationals are actually just made up of the reds' sloppy 2nds)
6. "I think they do it to look good in the lobby in their three-piece suit."
Speaker: Roger Clemens
Context: The Rocket explaining why athletes use performance-enhancing drugs in the first place.
Absurd because: Clemens wore a two-piece suit to subsequent Capitol Hill steroids hearings ... thereby proving his innocence!
Numerical score: 90
(blogger's note: you are a ridiculous person. my kindergarteners have more common sense than you do. you are a disgrace to baseball...not only b/c you broke the rules, but b/c you thought you were ABOVE the rules. i wish you would get pulled over for speeding and land in jail. plus, you are greasy. that is all.)
