Wednesday, April 6

Ok, so yesterday was all wonderful and stuff... 'cept the weather was kinda sucky.
Yeah, well set me up again bartender, except this time, make it sunny.

It's fuh-quing gorgeous outside... it's like some kind of weather fantasy. (of course, in my fantasy I don't spend the day in a windowless cube wishing I had a cordless hand drill cum Office Space...) and shut up about cum... the stuff you wipe off your chin is apparently spelled "come" and this cum is latin. :D It's sad how trivial stuff turns the most normal thing into porn. ah well...

Hey... how about some coffee maker fun? Our freaking $135 Kitchen Aide Coffee maker ... is one wicked ass piece of total scrap and I should smash it to pieces in a fit of rage ... just so I could take pictures and show it's friends. However... my succka coffee maker has no friends... Nobody wants to be your friend when your an overpriced whore. It's been screwing up a lot lately... and this morning... on a work day no less, it had the gaul (gall? gawl?) to stop the "making coffee" process after the little water line passed the four ... instead of the eight. So half the water never goes through. We make strong coffee... but that's just sick. That little bitch is going back!!! (hahaha... we have the "The Bay" receipt from two years ago... and it say's "satisfaction guaranteed"... so I'm taking it back.)

Hey that RIDICULOUSLY COOL google map slash satellite thing is awesome... and is so crazy popular that it actually fried under the weight of so much webby love last night. hahaha... check http://www.maps.google.com and click the upper right hand thing for "New Satellite" link. Peeps are zoooooooming in on their house and posting the pic. The result of this initiative is to re-enforce the notion that... we all live on the same suburban block of "residential" houses as per the 1999 version of Sim City. (ok, not everybody... but still...)

// Welcome to Italy. Please put on your shoes and line up behind the yellow line and prepare to show your papers.
Note: the yellow line is actually pee from the bazillion visitors to Rome who can't find a bathroom... but hey... we asked you to put on shoes.
(300 people pass the dead pope per minute... HAHAHAHAHA... you went into debt to fly to Rome and RUN PAST A DEAD POPE with some guy in a big red cape yelling "andiamo andiamo...") People gotta pay more attention to Boxing Fans... You see everything better on TV man.

// I still have snowshoes. :)

// Our news feeds here in Canada are all flipp'en along with yadda yadda about how the US is going to ask that all Canadians crossing the boarder to the US have a valid passport, via a slow implementation of this new rule over the next two years... My first reaction: "what? You mean I don't already have to do that? what the fuck are you talking about?" Second reaction: "what?" No really... why is this an issue? people talk like asking Americans to do the same is going to kill our tourist business and that asking us to do this is some big hardship??? Get over yourselves people... get a fricking passport and bask in the joy of a speedy border crossing without fumbling around with various pieces of ID and wondering "WTF... any smack monkey can get a Canadian drivers license..." Seriously though... talk about your non-issue. Get a passport... and get over this.

gah... I have to get to work...
but, as you may have guessed...
I could talk all day.

ps. I want a copy of Tango Shoes (??) by bif... anybody?

quick... right when lunch is settling in your tummy...
Eat an oh henry and try to read several hundred million pages of government RFP.

... and bring a damp cloth* to wipe up the saliva that drains out of your slack jaw after you fall asleep.

... sigh.

*damp cloth... avoiding moist towelette. Going that extra mile to avoid saying "moist" (<--- porno word that landed in the mainstream... and I wont stand for it!)


::::::::::::::::[ end of day me ] :::::::::::::::

So, do you have acrobat ... full version... installed?
Is cool no?
There's that little pdf maker icon at the top right of your IE browser... click it... and your whole friends page turns into a pdf.
Good way to put your friends page on a portable device and read while your ... doing anything else... like riding a bus or whatever. :)


That google map thing with the satellite... is freaking phenominal... I could scroll around like mad.
I'm kinda boggled that I can sit there and sort out arial photog of downtown Washington DC....
Let alone the half dozen nuc power plants that I found...


There are people here... in lj, ... friends on my friends pages... who I hold an almost reverent regard for.
It's like I think of them as famous people... as "stars" ... and I know they're just people.
Normal people... maybe... but they have really touched me with things that make them seem like so very much more.
It's kinda nice when they comment and I get that warm fuzzy... :)


Oh my gosh did I laugh at Amazing Race last night... when the Flamers were dressing in everything they owned... hahahaha... I gotta write that "write up" tonight. :)


i think I'll pick up some rainbow trout and cook it up spicey for dinner.


Hi Kris... your "a day in my life" was fabulous... Thanks. :D
You are ... without any doubt... an truly amazing woman.

Hey look... it's 4:50. Time to go be daddy and hubby and NOT the guy at work.

Seeya. :D

    Bif Naked - Tango Shoes


Mystery solved: (sorta).

When my folks left for their Queen E 2 cruise... they stayed in Honk Kong for a couple of nights... then hit the ship.
We heard from them via an email that spoke of their great happiness and excitement.
Then my dad tempers it all with a short comment at the end about "... except for a few small mishaps".

Well... that was all it took.
My brother, sister and I are well tuned to our families predisposition to hide calamity until there's no denability left.
We all instantly began imagining the various situations.

They have not answered in any detail, our requests for clarity.
However... papa sent a picture in the mail.
They are dressed to the nines, posing all squeaky cute, on the cruise ship.
Everything seems all well and good... save for one small detail.
Here's the crop...

However... no word on how or when.

Amazing Race 7 Update!!

Amazing Race 7 Update!!

Miss Congeniality ... Not!

It's all about... stereotypes. Plain and simple... The Flames practically flap their arms off, the stoners appear to have scored some Argentina Gold, the black guys got rhythm, the old guys can barely get their creaky bones into their jeep, Amber gives a capital hand job and the beauty queen has a ... tantrum. I swear every one of these people has been a character in a Harlequin Romance.
