Passing the Starbuck...

I've a feeling that someone slipped an extra shot of espresso into my coffee... I'm wired and my body temperature is rising even though it was iced... woo!

Sharp as rust...

There's that awful taste again, sharp as rust, wrapping around my tongue.
Worse, I'm no longer alone.
Impossible.
Not impossible.
This time it's human.
Maybe not.
Extremely long fingers.
A sucking sound too. Sucking on teeth, teeth already torn from the gums.
I don't know how I know this.
But it's already too late, I've seen the eyes. The eyes. They have no whites. I haven't seen this. The way they glisten they glisten red. Then it begins reaching for me, slowing unfolding itself out of the corner, mad meat all of it, but I understand. These eyes are full of blood.
Except I'm only looking at shadows and shelves.
Of course, I'm alone.
And then behind me, the door closes.

Crap

What is the deal with industrial strength toilets? You push the flush handle and water goes everywhere. It's like a tsunami in the toilet and the whole stall was invited.

I wonder if that's why so many people refuse to flush after two-zies.

Half-Real

I'm going to have to admit that despite the shaky camera, this is pretty well done.

Quote of the day...

So, I glanced over at the quote of the day, and I recognized it from Dr. Horrible:

It's not enough to bash in heads. You've got to bash in minds.
- Joss Whedon, Zack Whedon, Maurissa Tancharoen, and Jed Whedon

If you've not seen it yet, you're missing out! Take 30 minutes out of your day -- you won't regret watching Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog!

I can't wait to have kids so that when they shit themselves, I can take their diaper to work and show everyone how cute it is.

Crazy?

Are you still crazy if the voices in your head tell you to do good things like "TAKE OUT THE GARBAGE!" or "PAY YOUR TAXES!!!"

And if you are considered crazy, what if you decide not to do what the voices say?

From beyond the grave

My sophomore year of college, I took a History class at San Antonio College. The class required that I read the autobiography of Benjamin Franklin. The book was made available in the school bookstore and I purchased and read the book so I could write the required paper for the class. The book wasn't expensive. It was only $20 or so, but the real kicker came when the semester was over. I took my books back to the book store for buybacks and I was told they weren't buying back the Ben Franklin autobiography...

When I asked the attendant why they were not buying it back, he replied "because next year we'll be carrying a new edition."

Yeah. A new edition of Ben Franklin's AUTOBIOGRAPHY. I asked him if it was going to have a forward by Abraham Lincoln, but all I got in return was a blank stare.

How much updated material could one possibly get out of a dead guy?

Further proof that University book stores and publishers are just out to make a buck.

Intro to boredom

I'm in my intro to communication technology class... or as my Korean professor says "technolage" ...that's Tech Knowledge... and he's not just being cute... it's the only way he can say it.

Frequently, he just starts mumbling to himself about stuff... It's completely incoherent... here is an example:

"umm, ok, (smacks lips) uhh, so, what does that indicate? in the past the program providers... it's kinda different... they have more choices... ummm, ok. some different options. the cable company. in use of... in offering DVR services. ok. so. there could be some (mumble) I could dismiss all of them. some have larger channels of company. and you can purchase, like shopping, which is connected through the cable. I like that furniture. maybe I can purchase some. I'm not quite sure that like, maybe you're watching that sitcom Friends and you like that shirt that woman is wearing... that's what they're trying to do. so DVR gives us these changes and differences in the light of TV consumption."

I shit you not... I just typed that as he said it. He's still going, but now he's talking about music CDs in computers and 6million megabytes or something... wow...

The future is now






These things [no touch hand dryers] were all over in Japan when I visited in 2004... Now they're becoming popular in the US.

I'm still holding out for heated toilet seats...

MP3s

I've found that downloading LEGAL music makes my iPod more enjoyable.

For example, back in the day, I used to have so many MP3s that I NEVER liked to listen to. I had them because it seemed like the rage back in high school was to amass as large an MP3 collection as possible... Now, however, I've found that I'm far more picky about the MP3s I put on my player. This is due to two things. First, these puppies are about a buck a piece. I figure that I should be a little more picky for this reason. Additionally, I'm sick of hitting the skip button on my iPod. Why put on songs you don't want to listen to?

I used to think that I needed to have the whole album if I wanted to have a single MP3 from an artist. This is just not the case. If you don't like the other 13 tracks, DON'T BUY THEM! Just get what you want to listen to.

This is the joy of modern music technology.

I've found that Amazon.com seems to be the best way to get music. It's less expensive than iTunes and the songs are DRM FREE!
