Seriously, has the earth broken from of its orbit, and begun hurtling toward the sun? I checked the CNN website and didn’t see anything on it. But I think we’re hurtling; it’s the only explanation that makes sense to me.
Remember last summer? It was so cool people were bitching about it. “I like it a little hotter, just a little hotter,” they whined in their whiny, whiny voices. And now look what’s happened. Thanks! Thanks a whole hell of a lot, freaks.
There’s not enough talcum in Pennsylvania…
I’m having technical problems with this website, but I’m not going to go into detail. Because it’s not something most of you would give a single dingle about. But please know, I’ve spent the morning WHIPPING my hand through my hair, and grinding my teeth down to Tic Tacs.
It never stops. And that’s not just a phrase, it literally never stops.
As of July 7, 2010 (today) I still haven’t seen a real person using an iPad, out in the real world. Have you? Supposedly Apple is selling thousands per hour, or whatever. Where are they? I’m starting to think it’s all an elaborate hoax. Where go the iPads?
At the time of this writing, I haven’t yet contracted iPad fever. I’d still like to buy a Kindle, though. Especially since Amazon dropped the price to $189. Oh yeah. Kindle fever is ongoing, but I’m just not feeling it for the Pad yet. Do you have one? What’s your opinion?
And speaking of Amazon, they recently launched AmazonWireless. It’s supposedly designed to take the hassle out of signing up for cell phone contracts, upgrading your phone, etc. There are no mail-in rebates, or any of that nonsense. I haven’t used it yet, but it’s reportedly pretty slick, and inexpensive.
That’s just an FYI… But, of course, I would appreciate you folks using my Amazon links, whenever you do business with ’em. It’s an Everybody Wins! situation.
Last night I realized that the TEN YEAR anniversary of the Surf Report is approaching. I posted the first update on October 16, 2000. Can you believe it? I can’t.
I reread some of the early posts when I got home from work, and I certainly had a potty mouth back then, didn’t I? Wow. And I wrote about politics, too? It’s all fairly horrifying.
But it all came together eventually. I have some regrets (I wish I’d moved to WordPress years earlier, for instance), but I’ve put a lot into the actual writing from the start. Some days are better than others, but I work hard not to post any complete turds.
How should we celebrate the big ten year anniversary? Tell me your ideas in the comments.
Over the weekend Toney and I were lounging in the living room, and she was commandeering the remote. She was slowly surfing from channel to channel, and something amazing happened…
She momentarily stopped on a baseball game. An outfielder was shown running, covering lots of ground in a short period, then going completely horizontal, arm and glove fully outstretched.
Toney changed the channel! How is that even possible? How is it physically or emotionally possible? The guy was hyper-extended in the outfield, and she turned the channel!
For the rest of the day I felt a little discombobulated, like I had the bends or something. That shit just ain’t natural… I have no idea if he made the catch, or what. It was all so disconcerting. I just sat there blinking real fast, for upwards of a minute.
And I’m still a little shaken-up, if you want to know the truth.
I’m gonna call it a day, my friends. I’ll leave you now with a Question from the Stealing Clive Bull‘s Topics desk. In the comments section please tell us the most expensive thing you’ve ever bought, besides a house or a vehicle.
I can’t really come up with anything interesting. Maybe our first computer? It was ridiculously expensive.
Our trip to London was pretty pricey, too. And our upstairs baffroom remodel was also outrageous. But those are cheats, aren’t they? We should probably limit it to physical items, not services or trips.
If you have anything on that subject, or our upcoming 10 year birthday, post it in the comments section below.
And I’ll see you guys again tomorrow.
Have a great day!
