Cruel, to be even more cruel

Sunday, July 31st, 2005

My on-again, off-again relationship with the World Religious is mostly off this weekend. If it were not for people like this lady I’d write them all off as a bunch of cranks and go back to my happy, agnostic life. Sure, they’re probably right about God — but most of them are assholes. Case in […]

When sex was cute

Sunday, July 31st, 2005

One cable channel I like is the Turner Classic Movies channel. He seems to have dropped that “colorized” thing that gave everyone the same skin tone, by the way. Anyway, I like the old promos they play in between movies even better than the actual movies themselves. Today I happened to catch one, for Sex […]

For a bad time call

Sunday, July 31st, 2005

What the hell is it with this %$#*@!! town? Ever since I’ve been living here every single phone number I have had has been inundated with those stupid “we’re doing market research” and “You’ve won a vacation!” and “may I speak to the mortgage holder?” calls. I never got calls like that when I lived […]

No there there

“the connection was refused when attempting to contact www.blogrolling.com”
Looks like I’m going to have to get off my butt (so to speak) and write up my own list of links.
Update: oh, they’re back now.

I hate when this happens

Saturday, July 30th, 2005

I change into my pajamas and sit down to relax, deciding I’m finally in for the night, and just when I get all comfy a little voice in my head says “You know, spaghetti with my homemade meat and mushroom sauce would really hit the spot right now. Along with a nice rosé or white […]

Headscratcher

Saturday, July 30th, 2005

I’m bored. “I haven’t read Bill Quick’s Daily Pundit site lately” I said to myself. I visit. I come upon this post, remarking on the news that a Boy Scout was struck and killed by lightning:
What’s up with this? Four scout leaders electrocuted, mass illnesses, and now deadly lightning bolts. What’s next? Plagues?
Surely God isn’t […]

Consolidate the paradigm

Saturday, July 30th, 2005

I look around at the Goodwill rejects that I call my posessions and it occurs to me that half the moving/storage/where-to-fit-shit problems in my life would be solved if I had never fallen in love with the idea of “component systems.” You know what those are: they became popular among the general buying public sometime […]

This is your brain in Florida

Saturday, July 30th, 2005

Well screw going anywhere today — I’m staying inside where the nuclear fusion factory they laughingly call the “life-giving sun” can’t destroy my cellular integrity. See, I had to go out this morning to pay a few bills. That meant walking a block and a half to the ATM, and then another couple of blocks […]

Another reason not to get a Mac

Saturday, July 30th, 2005

If the cartoonish little icons, kandy-kolored desktops, we-be-so-cool attitude, and you’d-better-be-wearing-gloves white surfaces of the cases of the things weren’t off-putting enough, here comes an ad that seems deliberately conceived to irritate me.

Speaking of biting the dust

Saturday, July 30th, 2005

I am still too dead-dog tired to post anything about anything. I came home and fell asleep around six-thiry and woke up about five hours later so of course I don’t feel at all refreshed. I managed to sleep (mostly) through a smashing thunderstorm, but I did have the presence of mind to unplug all […]
