Molly and Tess are nap nest thieves. They must be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

The Aggies will not be winning the Big XII

I just told Molly. Even added that we would not beat the hookems.

Yep, morale around here is at an all time low. Molly is still mad about last year. Don't think for a minute that the hookems have forgotten about the cheap shot at the end of the game at the last meeting.

Good news for Aggie fans though, our band is favored by 27. GO BAND!!!

Updated: Good guys: 38 vs. Bad guys: 30. Nothing like some blatant dog exploitation to fire up a team. Speaking of blatant dog exploitation, I know one girl who will be getting an extra bone tonight...On another note, after the game on the way back to home base, we walked past my old haunt, the Langford architecture building, past the sculpture in a courtyard there. It never clicked, but guess what kind of dog is also memorialized for the ages on the campus at Texas A& get 3 guesses and the first two don't count.

I can't believe I've never realized that until today.

BREAKING NEWS: Tess takes a good picture...

As always, Molly looks like she knows what she's doing. For poor little Tess, this is a first.

I've cracked the Comcast customer service code

Recently I switched to DirecTV, but I kept my cable internet. Needless to say, this move required about 5 or 6 calls to customer service to get everything straight. One call to cancel my tv service, one call to correct a faulty connection, one call verify that my bill was credited accordingly and on and on. I'm an honest guy and generally not too argumentative with those folks who answer the phones. I would always follow the prompts on the automated system to properly direct my call.

"Due to a high call volume, wait times may be longer than normal." say that all the time! "For trouble with your service," you can press "1"...if you want to wait on hold for 30 minutes to an hour chained to your speaker phone.

This is where I turn dishonest...I opt for option 3..."to upgrade your service, press 3." Oddly enough there is never a wait time when Comcast thinks you want to spend more money. The people who answer always speak fluent English, they can help you with whatever it is you are calling about and wait times vary from 5 to 10 seconds. Please be patient.

Just a little tip for those of you who are Comcast customers. Did I mention all the HD channels DirecTV offers...with even more on the way? If you are thinking about making a move, I'll send you an invite and we both get 50 bucks off...
