Personal failing(s)

I’ve just realized that I’ve failed you, dear readers; I let the paper get recycled before I could document it for posterity. That said: guess who was on the front page of the Wall Street Journal last week?

Sakura Kinomoto. Of Cardcaptor Sakura. As in anime. (No, they didn’t use their traditional dot-art technique on her.) And I’m talking above-the-fold, to the right of the What’s News column—not hidden away on some subsection. Color me impressed.

This morning’s edition of Power Lunch (my folks like to watch CNBC during the day) was hosted by Bill Griffeth and Rebecca Quick (those photos are horrible). Bill’s an awesome anchor on his own—he used to hold down Power Lunch by himself—but the addition of Becky really gave the show an extra kick today. You may think that I’m kidding, but I’m totally not*. As far as financial news goes, Power Lunch with Bill and Becky is my ticket.

[*Even though I wrote this while channelling the spirit of a stupid fan, I can’t possibly touch the quality of Donna’s VD and Unicrons page. I know I’ve linked to it before, but even the name’s enough to crack me up. (Oh Sweet Moses… be sure to check out the survey, and read it all the way to the end.) In all seriousness, though, Power Lunch is actually pretty entertaining, as far as financial news shows go—Griffeth has a sense of humor.]

Time for some news briefs**: Marin and I have started in on Cowboy Bebop, so sometime soon I’ll rejoin the rest of the anime-watching world. (For those who don’t watch anime: everyone and their dog has already seen Cowboy Bebop.) I’m still horribly slow at studying, though I did manage to finish two chapters this morning. Work is backlogged to all heck, and has no hope of ever getting caught up.

[**Sorry—still trying to get CNBC out of my head.]

Andy tried calling both Nate and Nick’s cell phones this evening (they’re currently engaged in a cross-country road trip to move Nick back to Portland, now that he’s done with law school) without getting any response. He’s now started a dead pool on them. I’m not in—yet.
