I had a hundred and something posts on this here blog.  Now it's about twenty.  The Big Delete Hammer was wielded, and wielded often.

Why?  Someone I hardly knew was commenting on how revealing the blog was.  Quite simply, it is not good to leave that much of oneself available online for just anyone to read.

I like writing in this thing, but it needs to be kept at a certain level of decorum.

I used to have a handful or two of faithful readers.  I don't think I do anymore, but perhaps I can think of some new things to discuss and maybe a few people will read my ramblings.

Or not.  For now, I must sign out and study.

It's Sonwing Out

Yes, that's a deliberate misspelling. There is snow falling, and whenever that happens I think back to someone I used to briefly work with years ago.

She wasn't the brightest bulb in the pack, and she was terrified of having to be out in the snow. So, I show up at work one morning, expecting to find her there finishing her late night shift.

But she is gone - thank goodness I had a key to get in, this was a very very small company.

She did at least leave a note. It read as follows, and all misspellings are exactly as she wrote them:
"It's sonwing outside. My boyfiend is coming to pick me up."

I get the giggles over that to this very day.

And it is snowing out today, in late February. That's not unheard of, but fairly rare by this time of the year. Surprisingly, my kids still had school. Usually our district cancels school if there are more than three flakes on the ground.

Well, that's it for today.

Happy Birthday Joshua

My youngest son turned eight yesterday. We got him a Wii game and a Nintendo DS game, and have a game figurine on the way as his last gift.

Then we all went to our favorite local restaurant, Casa Mia. The boys shared a large cheese pizza, and the rest of us enjoyed various pasta and other dishes.
Here he is doing a "rock album cover" pose. He's normally pretty happy-go-lucky, the expression probably reflects the fact that he cannot figure out why dad is making him do this weird pose.

Happy Birthday, Joshua!

Rolling Home To You

Old man, look at my life, I'm a lot like you
Old man, take a look at my life
Twenty-four and I'm so much more
Live alone in a paradise, makes me think of two
Love lost at such a cost
Give me things that don't get lost
Like a coin that won't get tossed, rolling home to you

Old man, take a look at my life, I'm a lot like you
I need someone to love me the whole day through
Oh, one look in my eyes and you can tell that's true

Lullabies, look in your eyes
Run around the same old town
Doesn't mean that much to me, mean that much to you
I've been first and last
Look at how the time goes past
But I'm all alone at last, rolling home to you

Old man, take a look at my life, I'm a lot like you
I need someone to love me the whole day through
Oh, one look in my eyes and you can tell that's true
Old man, look at my life, I'm a lot like you

Word, yo.

Some Halloween Costume Ideas

I think I'm gonna go for the Goth look this year. Like this guy, and bonus points for being a wigger and throwing down some gangsta signs!

I only hope this WAS a Halloween costume. If this guy seriously thought he was being badass, Lord help us all.

I think this chick had an accident with a stapler, and then figured she might as well accentuate it. She looks far too pissed-off to be joking.

Next, Insane Clown Posse boy is bad enough, but what the F*** does he have on that leash? This hearkens back to the first picture - please tell me these kids are joking. If they are not, for the love of all that is holy, do NOT let them breed.

Finally, words fail me. So I shall sign off this special Halloween edition issue of I Should Have Taken The Blue Pill with this last image.

Enough Serious Posts For One Day

I am tired, and don't feel like typing much out.

So, let's get silly!



Yes, I am feeling VERY weird today.

New Levels of Spam

I got an email this morning - it actually looked like it was on the level at first. It was from someone claiming to be a webmaster who wanted me to write a review of his website and post it here. In return I would receive compensation or a free sample of his merchandise.

Wow, I thought, money's tight right now, I could use some. And getting paid to write - well, that's a dream job of mine. So I head off to his website, excited to see what it was I would be reviewing.

It was one of those "enlarge your penis" sites. Or enhance your penis. Or some shit like that. It basically involved putting a ring on your.....well, you know. And magnets were involved somehow.


So needless to say I will not be reviewing the penis enhancement site, other than to say it was poorly constructed and horribly laid out. But since I'm not giving out the name of the site, my comments mean nothing anyway.

Just take my word for it, it was lame. And I was very disappointed that I was duped into even clicking the link to this site.

The spammers get more clever every day.
