I think that there was a staff writer on “West Wing” from FSU.  The episode on tonight had a suicidal pilot from Tallahassee.  The pilot (the first episode not the suicidal one) had a couple of FSU political science majors who recognized Josh in a cafe. And Arnold Vinick (Alan Alda) almost took a professorship at FSU after he lost the election before he took the Secretary of State position.

Anyway… Erin is a nerd.

If you say so

Jesse Palmer, ESPN commentator and former Bachelor and Gator QB, says the Seminoles look good.  And he’s particularly complementary to the offensive line.  Um, don’t really know which games he’s been watching.  Do you think he’s trying to put some sort of hex on us?

Game Day

It was hot but fun.  Maybe I won’t wait two years next time.

Walter Dix of FSU finishes third in the 100M, beaten only by “fastest of the fastest of Jamaican sprinters” wearing golden shoes, and a guy from Trinidad and Tobago.  Do you think their people are called Trinidad and Tobagels? Probably not, but won’t that be awesome?

So this is a better one liner than an actual story… But inquiring minds want to know….

Molly and I went to see Martin Short on campus on Saturday. (Overall a very funny show.) We had aisle seats on front row of the student section (row Y… gees)

So he was doing a song and he ran up the aisle waving his arms like crazy. And when he got to me I really thought he was trying to high-five me. So I put up my hand.. like at shoulder height. But he clipped my finger nails instead of actually meeting my palm. And I keep my nails kind of long and have been told a number of times that they can and do cause injury.

He didn’t look like he was in pain… but he didn’t try to high-five anyone else.

So… Dear Martin Short, Sorry for hurting you. My sister can sympathize. I’ve hurt her many times. I didn’t mean to. Say Hi to the other Amigos for me. Your fan, Erin
