Best DVD Cover of 2007

I was browsing on Amazon and happened to come upon this image:

At a quick glance, it just seems like a scene from the movie. But seeing upside-down words got me to really study it. Flipping the image over allowed me to see that “Princess Bride” reads exactly the same no matter which way it is flipped. Kudos to the graphic designer on this one as I would have never thought “Princess Bride” could be read the same upside-down. The font, images, colors, and layout are amazing! Not to mention, the cover really sums up the movie.

Unintentionally, this is a tribute to one of my favorite movies of all time. But the notion that it’s the 20th Anniversary Edition makes me feel a bit old.

Work ate me

And shit me out and ate me again.

It’s been a helluva two work weeks and my soul is tired. I have accomplished yelling at people for their incompetence, been dubbed “Eagle Eyes,” and helped complete a major publication that has consumed over a year of my life.

Incidentally, this publication was standing in the way of my search for a new job. Let’s hope that 2008 brings new prosperity in the professional and familial realms.

Speaking of the latter, did I mention my left ovary has 20 follicles and my right one has 14? 34 follicles! I came out of the exam room and told MKD that I rocked that shit. I was very tempted to ask if I broke some kind of record as I was very proud of my ovaries. I guess for guys, a comparable illustration would be if they were told they had “strong swimmers” or a “high count.”

If you keep up with MKD, you will know that we bought a scale, which we have been using quite frequently. Not only do we know how much her tits weigh, but I discovered how much my poop weighs:
Weight before poop = 98.2 lbs.
Weight after poop = 97.6 lbs.
Poop = 0.6 lbs

It’s discoveries like these that make me thankful for the existence of sanitation. I am just one person. Times my poop by 300+ million people and you get a shitload (har, har) of poop in the U.S. daily.

Other than work and poop (those two go together well!), I am looking forward to finally getting some much needed R&R, which is one of the best things in the world. Add MKD and the mammimals, and I have an Instant Heaven.
