random babble not worth reading

Yesterday was the last day of the Minnesota State Fair. I bet a record number of overweight families showed up to this thing. Its a shame I didn't go.

The Twins are tied for 1st place, with only 3 games left of what was supposed to be a dooming road trip. I think they are in good shape to take the Central Division.

I started reading this book by Thich Nhat Hanh. Dude is a brilliant Buddhist Monk who will probably live to be 130 years old. His book, The Miracle of Mindfulness, teaches you how to breathe to change your mental attitude, and make you live a lot longer.

Gopher Nation moved one step closer to Pasadena Saturday Night by making a roaring, 4th-quarter comeback against the powerhouse known as Northern Illinois. It's a shame I didn't spend money to go watch this game at the Metrodome.

The Republican National Convention is going on right now, and McCain's running mate is Ted Nugent's wet dream. I will watch McCain's Speech to be fair, since I watched Obama's. Let's try to not have a political meltdown debate in the comments section.

Wuters, when you are done with the Miracle of Mindfulness, you should read Old Path White Clouds. It's basically the story of Buddha but told in an accessible way that also reinforces the basic tenets of Buddhism. I had to read it in college and I will say it was pretty cool.

I don't like boof now, but check back with me tomorrow. I'm fickle like that.

Another road loss, but still in first place.

Boy, some of those protesters are silly. I especially like it when the Anarchists team up with the Revolutionary Communists. It would seem that they would be mortal enemies, but the partnership seems to work because the Anarchists apparently have no idea what the word "anarchy" means.

yeah like goths who hate conformity who wear the same clothes as their friends which were purchased at the abercrombie and fitch of the goth world, hot topic. I laughed when I saw footage of hippie protesters getting arrested. damn hippies.

And this roadtrip can't end soon enough.
