Man, I was just remembering Monday night, when I was at the Manse for the Eagles game. Somebody brought up ref's salaries, and a lot of people in the room thought they must make $100K - $300K (did someone even say $600,000?), and Dave, and maybe Hal (I forget who said what) were saying lower than that, me too, I figured they'd make like $70K to $100K, so Jeff looked it up and it turns out that the salary for NFL referees ranges from $20,000 to $70,000. That's it! For the rest of the game, that fact was brought up almost every play. I mean, it's a hard enough job as it is, with all those people yelling at you and HATING you as you're trying to do your job (as Teege pointed out a month ago), but you're only getting paid that much?? Good lord, no wonder they have to hire refs who don't even know all the rules.
I was having a weird dream this morning, but I can't remember it. I can remember three (3) things: 1) there were Vespas in it; 2) I wanted to open the door to my balcony, but there was a hornet on the window, so I was dispairing, and then Mitch said "why don't you just use the spray foam, isn't that what you bought it for?" and I said "oh, yeah . . . "; and 3) I discovered that if I let my hair air-dry, it is curly. Like, crimping-iron/small braids curly. Yowza.
