End of the Week Wrap-up 4-22-2006

Jokes Week

Yep, in case you hadn't figured it out, this week was Jokes Week. Basically, I was feeling terrible because of allergies this week, and my mind wasn't in "opinionate" mode, so I posted jokes that I had been receiving this week. I may continue to do that here, though, because it's easier for people to just go to my blog rather than me forwarding them to everyone I know. Plus, it gets more eyeballs looking at my blog, and for any blog to get noticed, you gotta get a lot of eyeballs looking at it. That's also why I'm trying to post something --if not everyday-- then at least several times a week. One thing I hate about reading blogs is when the blogger goes a long time without adding an entry. They have "spurts" in which they post a lot, then they disappear for two weeks or longer. That's a good way for me to weed them out of my list of bookmarked webpages. Blog readers want something to read!

Edtoons on my blog

I liked how my first edtoon came out on my blog, so I'll try to post a new edtoon here at least once a week, but I'll aim for more than that. Then once a given month has passed, the edtoons for that month will go to my website as a sort of archive. I've already got an idea for my next edtoon, and I'll try to post it either later today or tomorrow.


The Dallas Mavericks are about to start their playoffs, and it's against the Memphis Grizzlies. During the playoffs, no opponent should be considered a "given", but the Mavs should be able to handle this team so long as they don't look past them and play their game like they're capable of. The Mavs should win this best-of-7 series in at least 5 games.

The Fort Worth Flyers will play the championship game tonight. Two players were called up earlier this week to play in the Mavs' last game of the season so that the Mavs could rest some players for the playoffs. The game was meaningless, because both teams were already in the playoffs and their postions in the rankings already set. Once the game was over, they were sent back to Fort Worth for tonight's game. Go Flyers!

The Texas Rangers seem to finally be showing some signs of life. I did not realize it until I looked at the standings on Monday, but the whole American League West division sucks! As badly as the Rangers were playing to start the season, they were only down by 2 games! No team was over the .500 mark, which right now makes us the worst division in baseball. The flip side of this is that we still have a chance to win the division! ;-) It's bad to have to depend on the other teams in the division to be doing just as bad in order for your team to still have a chance, but I guess we have to take our gifts as they are given to us.

Main Street Fort Worth Arts Festival

I love going to the Arts Festival. I love all the hustle and bustle and the art and music and the food --just the whole atmosphere of the event. It's for this weekend, and I plan to go tomorrow and take some pics.I'll be posting them here on Sunday or Monday. Here's a link to the website for the event:

Come on down. Maybe I'll see you there! ;-)
