Who u xLIIke?

sb42Super Bowl XLII, on Sunday, February 3rd, 2008, features the New England Patriots vs NY Giants. To brag, I do believe Sludge has had their fair share of undefeated seasons; and non-undefeated seasons. I'm not jinxing, I'm just sayin'.

Let the PREDICTIONS begin.(Enter your pick in Comments)
1. Who wins the game - Pats or Giants?
2. What's the score at the end of the game??

Color Blind

White is the new silver for automobile colors. Brown is lucky number 7 in overall popularity, & jumps one spot ahead of blue in fancy (luxury) vehicles.

Last year’s DuPont Global Color Automotive Popularity Report tracks color across vehicle segment and also reports by geographic region.

“The rise in popularity of white/white pearl and the long reign of silver suggest that we can expect a more dramatic shift in the top color choice.

Overall, White = 19%; Silver = 18%; Black = 16%; Green = 2%...
& Brown/Beige = 5%.

Love Your Toes

Don't Let This Happen To You...

Ultra race winner suffers frostbite, scheduled for amputation (USA Today, 01.23.08)

Andrew Wells spent nearly 17 hours on the Ice Age Trail...At one point, the temperature dropped to nearly 15 below zero.

After finishing, he went to a friend's home in Madison and napped. He woke to intense pain in his toes. He removed his shoes and discovered a purple discoloration.

That old trick using plastic grocery bags as a sock liner might've helped. Or playing pickup for a few hours, instead. Bonus: you can nap afterwards without fear of losing toes!

RIP Kleenex

You can pick your friends. You can pick your nose. You can not pick your friend's nose.

Snot Spot offers a simple, yet great wardrobe malfunction. Made of soft, high-quality, moisture-resistant fleece & is worn directly over your winter glove, mitten, or even on a bare hand....always accessible surface to take care of those pesky drips...a fantastic spot to put your snot.

sNot bad for design excellence so as to not affect most forehand flickiness; unless you want it to.

Game On

Dr. King's Memorial site is a four-acre plot on the north east corner of the Tidal Basin within the precinct of the Jefferson Memorial and north of the memorial to President Roosevelt. Not on the Polo Fields of our beloved pickup games, yet will increase parking space competition in that area.

When will the Memorial be completed?
The Ceremonial Groundbreaking occurred on November 13, 2006. The start of construction is contingent upon raising $100 million. The Dedication of the Memorial is tentatively scheduled for 2009.

"I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: 'We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.'" -- Dr. King

Safety Measure

WOW! Exhilarating live-blogging of the weather yesterday!
Sludge is all about safety first.

The sleet-snow-ice-rain-ish has coagulated to sludgesh, take heed to be applied to walkways & steps, not at pickup:

Use salt and non-clumping kitty litter to help melt ice and snow to gain traction.

Warm DC winter temps have a certain TP resident combing the Outer Banks beach for October housing.

Refusing to pay royalty fees for 'Here Comes the Sun' (The Beatles' 1969 album Abbey Road, Helen), there's a recommendation on the pool table: Sun Terra.

Give your immediate feedback on either Sun or Terra.

A 2007 SLUDGEY AWARD popped up for sale on eBay today and attracted a top bid of more than $3000 before it was removed.

Each unidentified award, unique in artistic design, was offered anonymously for sale on eBay. An Awards Committee spokesperson said: "We have contacted eBay about removing the very cool and attractive Award." Within three hours, the Award had been taken down from the site after getting more than 59 bids, the highest at $US3026.

The real value of the award is appraised much more...sentimentally than monetarily.

May your fridge wear it proudly!

It's Slog, Slog Slog!

COY Snub

Chalk up another loss in 2007 AND a loss in 2008 already! Brown was snubbed for Color of the Year (COY).
2007 COY: Chili Pepper Red
2008 COY: Blue Iris

Pantone refers to brown (TX19-1230) as "earthy & real," yet the NYTimes article about the self-promo contest reads:

...After all, where would the world be without Miuccia Prada’s beautification of ugly brown...

Ugly? Oh...No...They...Didnt!
