Twilight Update, Cars & Earnings, Lasers

Twilight update: I’m somewhere in the 350 range pagewise.

Guess which of the following is an actual passage from the book:

“And so the lion falls in love with the lamb…” said the pretty vampire, who is actually 106 years old, and is scamming on me, a 17 year-old girl. “I watch you sleep from a tree in the woods every night – isn’t that neat?”

“I want to marry you,” was my reply. “I like the idea that you keep saying you want to kill me, and that you can smell me from across a room. It’s like I’m in that movie, Silence of the Lambs, but it’s all taking place in my bedroom, and you’re not in a cage.”

OR

“I want to touch your face with my cold hands. I will do this for hours, and these hours will last for 50 pages. 50 pages of me touching your face. With my hands. For hours. They’re so cold…but your heart is warm.”

It’s either the first one or the second. There are only two choices.

So the whole American auto industry is collapsing, and as is the way of things, they’re crying for the government to bail them out.

The situation is grim: GM ended the third quarter with $20 billion in cash on hand; the company needs at least $12 billion a month for day-to-day operations.

How much of that 12B goes to the CEO salary? Four billion? Five?

I dunno – you know my position on this – if you’re business goes down, it goes down. That’s how things should work.

Let’s move this to a more personal angle. My sister is looking at her lease being up in February or something, and she’s not sure what to do, since “car leases” may not exist by then.

Since we’re twins and can read each others’ minds, I already know that she’d like another Mustang (Aw, Stang!), but she’d also like to get a big semi truck with a massive eagle on the hood shouting, “TOUGH TIRES!!!”

I asked her why, and this was her response.

I love the Killers! I’m so stupid! Hahahahahaaa!

If you’ve met my sister, then you know that I don’t want to know that you’ve met her, and she is indeed a fan of the Killers.

Where am I going with all this?

This is a short way of saying, “Cavs in first in the Central, likely for the duration. Let’s continue to call Joe Dumars a genius, though. He did build the Lasers to that one title.”

I do feel bad for AI, and I don’t understand how putting him in a system that is fracturnalized by being more than the sum of its parts works, since everything aboot his style of play is the opposite of that.

    CEO of GM Rick Wagoner salary for 2008 is $2.2 million in 2008. Thus restoring his base pay to the level it was before he took a 2006 pay cut as part of the company’s turnaround plan.

    The Killers new stuff is trash. Although I admit that it is trash that I like…even if the singer takes…liberties whilst writing said lyrics. (Are we human or are we denser???)

    And how many chips have the Cavs won again?

    The Lasers get the worth of their title devalued because Chauncey and Sheed acted like they actually won 17 straight.

    By that math, they now actually have won -4 titles.

    An annoying banner ad led me to this quiz: Which Twilight Character are you? Take it, and then tell me and then I won’t understand the answer cuz I don’t get around to teen-chick lit.

    Chauncey and Sheed always seemed stunned that people did not recognize them as back-to-back-to-back-to-back champs. In Sheed’s case, it’s not helped by the fact that NBA analysts are always calling him a top 5 player “when he wants to be” when, in fact, he’s never demonstrated an ability to be consistently dominant.
    Chauncey was (and still is) constantly lauded as a top-flight point guard but he’s not, his career stats bear that out. He’s a very good point guard but, like Sheed, the hype doesn’t match the product. The best player on that team is — and has been — Tayshaun Prince.

    When you have a chance take a look at Yao’s declining yearly shooting % and explain that one.

    That Eastern Conference Championship banner looks awfully lonely at the Q… that… one… banner

    I guess if that’s all you’ve got to look forward to is a new Nike ad campaign and more speculation about your one (and only) superstar leaving for bright lights and a bigger city then that 1… lone… Eastern Conference Championship banner makes up for an actual championship and the rings associated with it.

    But hey, I keep waiting for you to hold your breath while you wait for Danny Ferry to lead this group of patheticness to an actual championship.
