Zune 30 Pandemic

Wednesday, December 31st, 2008

Oh, good grief! I awoke this morning to find my Zune in a less than pleasing way. I was concerned that the number of times I’ve dropped the device had finally caught up with me and I was paying the ultimate price. However, I decided to check out what was being said online [...]

Wednesday, August 27th, 2008

Carlos brought to my attention his recent exploration of road rash. Oh, Carlos, where can I learn more? Personal experience is often a better teacher than anything else.

Holy moley! You can’t go wrong with 2008 Tai Chi masters in a sychronized routine!!! #
Is it just funny to me that they have “tremendous national pride” having just gotten some astronauts in space a couple of years ago? #

Hangin’ at the Airport

Friday, September 14th, 2007

Looks like I get to spend some time at the airport today to contemplate life. I made some planning mistakes getting here this morning, and arriving 15 minutes before my flight cost me 6 hours of wait time for another one. The terminal is locked just prior to the flight, so I couldn’t [...]

What is Hentai?

Thursday, January 25th, 2007

I get a lot of comment spam with the word hentai mentioned. I get that it must be something erotic from the context, but that’s it. Sometimes it’s in the same random group of words as handjob and Asian. When did Asian become a dirty word? I’m a little afraid to [...]

The Smell of Victory

Monday, January 1st, 2007

Either way, the FDA blocked approval of the “Alli,” the new OTC version of Xenical because the effects aren’t permanent. (The drug works by blocking absorption of about one-third of fat consumed.) Users only lost about 15 pounds in a year amidst a slew of side effects such as abdominal cramping, oily stools, and rampant [...]

JB Lotteries, MCC Construction Corporation, & The Manchester Register

Friday, September 23rd, 2005

What could JB Lotteries, MCC Construction Corporation, and the Manchester Register all have in common? A scam, it would seem. I received a letter in the mail yesterday shipped 2-day FedEx Express from one Aimee Bird with JB Lotteries in NewYork. The envelope is accurate, the material inside is convincing. It [...]

RACE: Enter Personal Politics

Tuesday, September 13th, 2005

We went to Athens’ Athica art gallery to see the RACE show. It’s a bit of an anti-whitey display, but I’m not going to say that the white man hasn’t done some malicious racial activities in the past and present. I’m sure that it will continue into the future, possibly as a result [...]
