Stuck at the Prom

Sorry to have been gone for so long. My day job just had to take precedence.

Today is my first day off since we rolled out our new software. I've been napping and catching up on Internet news.

Just for fun: check out this year's contestants for the Stuck at the Prom annual duct tape competition. The rules require that two people create prom attire from colored duct tape and then attend the prom wearing their original creations. The ten 2009 finalists have now been selected, and you can vote once a day for the ones you believe should win from now until July 2.

Each half of the winning couple for the year receive a $3,000 scholarshop; each half of the second place couple win a $2,000 scholarship; and each half of the third place couple receive a $1,000 scholarship.

Here is the page to vote on the finalists for this year. I'm voting for #36, #87 and #179.

Sacha Baron Cohen's Latest Stunt

Sorry I've been out of touch. My university rolled out a new software program this morning at 6:00, and I'm the project manager for my department.

Back to work now, but here's a link to the video You Tube keeps taking down. I didn't see the MTV Movie Awards last night, but Sacha Baron Cohen's stunt is all over the news this morning.

Cohen flew into the awards dressed as "the dove of peace" in feathers and a jockstrap. A "malfunction" caused him to land facedown in rapper Eminem's lap. His bare bottom was in the startled Eminem's face. The rapper's posse quickly seized Cohen and pulled him off their boss, but Eminem and his entourage immediately stormed out.

I found the video on a UK You Tube website here. Don't know how long it will last before Viacom forces them to take it down.
