My first SONY "music" CD

So I received my first Sony "music" CD that I can't play on my computer...which sucks.
So, part of the settlement is they have to be willing to exchange that with a non-crappy-software CD AND give you the MP3 files (if you so desire).
I thought I was getting a really neat CD with Cyndi Laupers new "The Body Acoustic"

Picked up a friend today from Dunkin' Donuts...he was turning his car in to be detailed...anyhow, they are a really good donut, but nothing like the Dunkin Donuts I had in Japan. I love a few Krispy Kremes...but I can take it or leave it. I also like the apple fritters at Safeway (as my waist is testifying).

I really need to starting eating a bit more on the healthy side. I found a place near work that has an amazing lunch! You can get Quiche (? on spelling) and a huge baby green salad for $4.95...or a 1/2 sandwich and salad for $5.45, or a full sandwich and salad for $6.45. Incredibly healthy, tastes amazing, and I love the service there. :)

The NFL and T.O.

Even though I'm not a fan of T.O. (Terrell Owens), I'm glad he was put on T.O. (Timeout) for the rest of the season. It's not as if he's had to work an hour of mandatory O.T. (Over Time) in his self-centered life...maybe this will be a wakeup call for him. only concern for him was all the Fantasy Football fans that had him picked for the season. T.O. was living the fantasy life...welcome to reality big guy!

Here's a great article on T.O. simply not being worth all the trouble:

And a sweet quote: Once again we have learned the truth. The truth is this: There is no "I" in T.O. or in team. But there are three in narcissistic.
