Will Ferrell on The Office

So Will Ferrell is going to be on The Office this Thursday and apparently for the foreseeable future. Not sure what his character is going to be like, but maybe we'll see some of this.

SPD St. Patricks Day Beat Down

I'm sure this will start making the rounds soon. These cops were probably fed up with dealing with the crackers on River Street all day. Make no mistake, the crackers in this video are certifiable.

SPD '11 Redux

- BBR for being awesome.
- Everyone that attended the BBR.
- MR and MM for getting the corner room at the Hilton.
- The Hilton for being gracious hosts and putting up with a lot of crap that other hotels would not put up with.
- God for gracing us with perfect weather.
- Thursdays for being the best parade day - huge, but not overwhelming crowds, and 3 days to recover.
- Madison Square for being the new Chippewa Square.
- WF for going the distance for the first time since '06.
- ML for catching his second wind after the BBR.
- SL for rubbing elbows with the big dogs at the SF breakfast and HS banquet.

- KofC for missing out on some of the post-parade crowd since the great weather kept everyone in the squares after the parade.
- SPDPC for the 10-minute gap towards the end of the parade and for publishing a full-page SCPS ad in the Parade Magazine.
- LH for over-celebrating his induction into CnE.

For me, this was the best Parade season ever. Hopefully 2012 will be even better, as TC and I will be pushing strollers!

361 more days!

I was thinking last night, if Jimmy Seawright and the Seersuckers doesn't work out, there is always a fallback plan: Bing Crosby cover band.

Coming March 11

It was announced yesterday that Apple's newest iPad will come out in just over a week.  This one will be lighter, faster, and have longer battery life.

I think the iPad is cool.  So cool that if you chopped its price in half, made the screen a little bigger, and attached a keyboard to it, it would almost be as cool and easy to use as a laptop.
