Daily Top 5 >>> 3/27/09

  • "Oatmeal Raisin Cookies" Mark my words, I'm gonna be the first person the Cook County Coroner's Office will ever rule dead by oatmeal raisin cookie. The best I've had are from Au Bon Pain. I'm not sure how bad these cookies are for you, but I couldn't give less of a f***. Now I understand how Bubbles from The Wire feels. I understand that eating 8 and 9 cookies a day isn't good for the long-term, but eff the long-term. I wanna feel good now.
  • "Barnes & Noble" I started work yesterday at Norris. I really feel for the women working full-time up there at the register. I was on my feet for 3 hours doing fake transactions at a training register. The only saving graces are the sweet discounts I get, some upwards of 30%. Don't ask for the hookup though, I'm not tryin to go out like Craig. All this is said b/c I realize how hard people forced into low-wage employment have it. If I had a choice b/t working at the bookstore 50 hours a week and selling rocks.....well, I'd be in Jewel's express lane with a 2 month supply of Arm & Hammer I'll just say that. Don't bitch to people behind the register, especially if it's me.
  • "Talent" Caught the last 4 acts of the Payton talent show last night. I don't know who the other host w/Mr. Wright was, but they were pretty funny and obviously improv-ing. Lianne's dance team killed it as usual, and the Irish dance chick did her thing. Again. In the same costume. Darrius is right though, she could be a beast on the footworking scene.
  • "BBC" I normally don't do requests, but Logan's call for a 'The Day in Pictures' shoutout was warranted. I try to look at them whenever remember to, which isn't very often. But check it out, the photos rarely disappoint.
  • "Idiots" People are really really stupid. A recent Rasmussen survey found that 30% of the Americans asked believe athletes and actors should have pay capped at a million bucks - that is socialism. These people aren't demanding to make $20 million a season or movie out of thin air! The only reason that money even exists is b/c the dumbasses that took this survey are willing to pay $40 for nosebleed seats and $15 for movie tickets. Multiple times! If the teams and studios made less, the athletes and entertainers would. If Barnes & Noble was selling Us Weekly magazines for $75 a pop, trust me I'd be making more than $8.50 an hour.

The guy hosting with Mr. Wright was Mr. Newton, Mr. Wright's protege and new English teacher extraordinaire.

Thanks for posting the link to BBC's Day in Pictures. You should def. check out that link I put on your facebook. They're all the best photos from 2008.
