So last night I was IMing with Amy, and as we were saying goodnight, as a silly term of endearment, I said "'night birdo". I'm not quite sure where this came from, but I frequently have thoughts that seem to bubble up from wacky, wacky places in my brain:

Amy: birdo?
Alex: google it
Alex: actually
Amy: that's one of the bad guys in supermario 2 [she said this without having time at all to google 'birdo', and obviously, the SMB character is what i was alluding to.]

Amy, thats hot you down with the birdo crew.

Incidentally, like 4 years ago, even before these old school SMB characters started showing up on t-shirts hanging from the walls at the spencer's gifts and the hot topics and the urban outfitters, i thought about trying to get a license from nintendo to create a birdo t-shirt. maybe i should still go for it. any takers for Crazy Al's Birdo Wear?

Of course: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Birdo

This cheese is really really good! And you can even get it at Safeway (at least the ugh-inducing Marina Safeway)

Living Forever....It's the Cheese

There is this island, Sardinia, maybe you've heard of it, where there are lots of old people. Like 100+ years of age. And the weird thing is, in some parts, the ratio of male to female centenarians is 1:1 (as opposed to 1:4 in the rest of the world)!
