My Name Is......


I was looking at a friend's Myspace page yesterday and he listed in the "people I would like to meet" section that Jack Bauer from 24 is the person he would most like to meet. Then a friend of his left a comment saying he loves 24 so much that he bought a puppy and named it Jack Bauer. Well, Rach and I have recently gotten hooked on 24 like some people get hooked to crack or diet pills and I was so impressed that this guy named his dog Jack Bauer (which is quite bold and Jack-Bauer-Like) that I wanted to name something of mine Jack Bauer. So I looked around the house to consider what to give this great name and my eyes locked on the perfect object. My Starbucks coffee grinder. I mean its sexy in design, like Jack Bauer. It's made of metal so its tough, like Jack Bauer. Its a little loud and over bearing at times, like Jack Bauer. It's always there when I need it, like Jack Bauer. And most importantly, it always, always, always gets the job done, just like freaking Jack Bauer. I feel like a new man now that I too have something that is special to me named after the man I would most like to be (list in order of importance: Jack Bauer, Ben Harper, Abraham Lincoln). I heart life. Cheers.

Chris!

Do you sometimes find your coffee grinder leaving the house without telling anybody, just to come back with the excuse that he left without telling you so that you could have total deniability as to it's whereabouts?

Do you sometimes find your coffee grinder yelling at you: "Who do you work for?!" or "We're running out of time!"

chris, you are a sick, sick boy - I say this as if Jeremy and I haven't been addicts ourselves of not only 24 - but Alias, and buffy (yikes) - we all have our weaknesses
