Florida starts a python hunt

Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission offering cash prizes to those who bring in the most dead pythons. If you are interested, it costs $25 to go hunt pythons in the Everglades, plus a half hour video. Cost of guns and ammunition not included.

On the bright side, this is the dry season in the Everglades.
1. Does anyone else hate the new Television Without Pity layout and design? More difficult to find show recaps and even more ads in an already ad-filled site. Sigh.

2. What's with the trend of putting a telephone area code on a baseball cap and wearing it around? Are we all really that proud and excited about the 954 and 561 area codes? Me, personally, I see them as, well, area codes. And I'm not sure I want the first thing that people think of when meeting me to be 954.

3. Er. Yes, I do still have a home phone number (although this will probably be changing in another couple of months) but no, when asked, I still have no idea what it is. Fortunately someone else did. (Thanks coldecho!)

4. I swear, I am able to meet new people and not launch into a discussion of python sex pheromones, all apparent evidence over the past two weekends to the contrary. While we're on the subject, let me swiftly assure you all that I am not as obsessed with python sex pheromones as I might sound.

5. I hate waking up with a headache. It's one thing to develop one as the day's tribulations continue, but waking up with one just seems wrong.

6. And no thanks to kellirose1313 and her husband, I appear to have picked up another obsession: Rock Band. This game is, to understate greatly, totally made of awesome, even if it took me way too long to get that you have to hold down the chord AND strum at the same time while playing the guitar part (I don't play the guitar in real life. I may have to break down and get one of these things.

7. And in your whoa story of the day, man faces jail for smuggling iguanas in fake leg. All I'm saying is that if I'm ever in Fiji, I can think of more entertaining things to do then run around kidnapping iguanas. But that's just me.
