C.K.L.'S HOTSHEET *
WHAT NON-AARDVARKS WERE PONDERING WHILE NOT UPDATING THE HOTSHEET...
01 BABYLON 5The new soundtrack CDs from Sonic Images are not round. Also look for ShadowTM- and VorlonTM-shaped CHICKEN TENDERS® at Burger King®.
02 LINUXHey kids! You don't have to wait for the DoJ verdict to get a Microsoft-free computer. Of course, this does require that you (gasp!) learn something about your computer.
03 CONGRESSThe new House Speaker's proposal for a five-day work week (two more than currently scheduled) has Republicans up in arms. Maybe another pay raise would placate them.
04 CAT SCANSHave you ever wondered how a feline would look if you stuck it inside a flatbed scanner? Wonder no more.
05 THE ONIONI don't know why I find this amusing, but I do.
06 NEWS BABESIn the fast-paced world of television journalism, you've got to be a babe to get the job done. Well, maybe not, but it couldn't hurt.
07 PATCH ADAMSRead the real story before you go see the movie (Good Morning Gesundheit Institute).
08 BOFHYou don't know the Bastard Operator From Hell? You've probably got an iMac, too, haven't you? Luser.
09 REALAROMAThe final frontier in computer technology: an olfactory plug-in for your web browser. Look for a cross-promotion with Glade.
10 MOFFETT FIELDThe former military base might house Stanford grad students in the future. I don't have a joke for this one.
11 NOISE CANCELING HEADPHONESThe EE geek says: "Why pay $160 at Amazon.com when you can just build your own?"
12 INSURRECTIONThe new Star Trek movie opens on Friday. Do you have what it takes to blend in at the premiere?
13 EPISODE II have seen The Trailer, and it is Good.
with apologies to Jim Mullen
