Britney Spears is to guest on an episode of "Will & Grace" as a Christian conservative. Great, so long as it annoys certain people...

I'm still sick. This has been the worst cold/flu in quite some time. My new love in life is amoxicillin.

I hate my cat.

Word of the day: obsession

Fan-fucking-tastic: Marr & Rourke play two Smiths songs at Manchester v. Cancer

Saw the State of the Union speech. Best words to describe it? "Monkey", "clueless" and "clueless Monkey".

The TV show "Campus Ladies". Hilarious. At least the lesbian episode. See, there is some benefit to being sick and having to channel-surf all day...

The HP LaserJet 1320 I didn't pay $399 for it. Try $6. It's a long story, but the most important point is that Erin doesn't have one.

I saw New York Doll at DMAC this weekend. It's quite sad at times, but very good. Plenty of Morrissey clips. If you get a chance...

"Critics have expressed concern that an accident on launch could spread deadly plutonium over a wide swath of central Florida.

In an environmental impact statement NASA was required to file before making final flight plans, the space agency indicated a 1-in-620 chance exists of an accident on liftoff that would release some amount of plutonium into the environment."

The Ringer: this movie gets a thumbs-up...barely. Quite funny at times, but Johnny Knoxville should just stop trying to act.
Munich: thumbs-up. Suspensful. Has a good feel to it. Terrible ending.
Syriana: thumbs-up. Very good from start to finish. Go see it.
Narnia: thumbs-up, yet disappointing. I felt the book was darker. And those silly brit kids...grr.

While "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and grunge were breaking state-side, the UK had the Madchester scene and Shoegazer. Jesus Jones fits in there, as does Ned's Atomic Dustbin with "Grey Cell Green".

My new "it" girl is…

Catherine Keener - I can't say enough good things about her. Sexy, without the whored-out element. Cute, without looking high maintenance. Excellent in "Being John Malkovich" and "The 40 Year Old Virgin". However, she's 12 years older than me!

Runner-up: Asia Argento. Her downfall: heavy smoker. I dig the tattoos though!

My trip to Phoenix, Arizona (pa-hoe-nix for some of you) to see my brother, his wife and my brother-in-law went very well. Very good food. Free skate parks. Very few driving mishaps. Check out the pics.

My "Person of the Year" for 2005 is Mohamed ElBaradei. Why?

-He won the Nobel Peace Prize.
-He's been patient, while holding his ground regarding Iran's nuclear program.
-He said shortly before the Iraq war that there was no evidence to support the Bush administration's claims.
-He survived the Bush administration's attempt to stop a third term as director general of the atomic energy agency.
-He admonished the current nuclear powers saying they had neglected their treaty obligations on weapons reductions (singling out the Bush administration for development of new, small, tactical nuclear weapons).
-He donated his peace prize money to orphanages.
