We had the first of several 10th Anniversary Fark Parties this past Sunday afternoon. Thanks to everyone who came, it was a blast as usual. I wish I had not been switching between Stella and Kronenburg for 6 hours though. Following up with a couple more sakes at dinner and more beers later didn't help much either.
The next party is in Vancouver Monday Feb 2nd. Looking forward to seeing everyone there again. It's been way too long.
It's not Fark It's News: nothing much to report from last week. Media spent a bunch of time waiting around for Obama to do something. Things seem to be back to normal this week, based on the tons of good Fark material we've been seeing.
The BS lost Superbowl productivity article finally came out. I predicted they'd either add $20 million on to last year's figure (like they have the past three years) or round straight up to $850 million. For those who missed it, the figure was $848.5 million. Sounds more real than either $840 or $850 million, but it's a BS figure, media knows it's BS, and they still ran the article.
I don't have much in the way for predictions for this coming week. One thing of local interest is that Jim Cantore has shown up in Kentucky. Cantore is the Weather Channel's harbinger of the apocalpse so I'm probably going to die. However if I don't I'll be back next week.
