Birthgiving

Today happens to be my birthday. Great! At least I get a nice feast that I can pretend 289 million people cooked for me. Well, you can send me a birthday e-card or something. That’ll work if you can’t send me a ham.

Happy turkey day to you though. When else do I get to see the messed up aunt that eats raw butter with her bare hands and falls asleep at the dinner table. Good times, good times.

Movies

One of the best things about all of this is that I can change my mind as many times as I want. There is a movie section up now. You’ll find a link over to the right. It’s not done yet, and my mind keeps changing, but I thought I’d let you start enjoying it now.

I hope to soon bring to it more integration with the front page, an easier way for people to respond to the reviews and a finished navigation scheme.. heh. If you have any comments or suggestions that are relevant and not dumb, then let me know. I like to listen.

Crap

I seem to be unable to have a proper bowel movement. I get the urge to go too often, and when I go, not enough comes out. What am I supposed to do about that?

What does fiber help with? When you have the urge to go and nothing happens? Or when you never have the urge to go? Or something else?

It’s not all bad, though. At least I have plenty of throne time to relax and enjoy some good reading material. There is no more serene and peaceful time than when your pants are around your ankles, the cold ceramic is against your cheeks, a good magazine is in your hands and the gentle plops of your once enjoyed meals echo off of the walls. I just need my plops back.

Scientology

So I was driving through a nearby town on the way home last night when a sign flew past my peripheral vision, a sign in front of a business/house right off the main road in town. This wasn’t just any ordinary sign though, it was a sign for the Church of Scientology. Yep… that’s right, Hubbard’s Dianetics cult sons of bitches in the flesh, right here in my own area. What the fuck!

If you don’t know anything about the CoS and are totally confused, you should read up on them. Some of the stories are entertaining in ways, but others are rather upsetting. The things they do to people, families, the freedoms they obstruct, and well… read up on the horror stories and judge for yourself. I’ll take this opportunity to plug the fight against the CoS happening at Operation Clambake. Good stuff, just cause. I just hope Forgo doesn’t get sued because of this post, LOL.

Beetle Convertible

The new VW Beetle Convertible commercial is wonderful. I really like it. I TiVoed it.

It hits my ultra-nostalgic side. You’ve heard it from me before. The days pass. Different, yet still the same. What’s the goal? What’s the point? Wasn’t it the same years ago? Shouldn’t it be different now? Where’s the motivation? Where’s the inspiration? I find a little of the inspiration in this commercial. Very nice. Plus, it’s a really good song.

You can read this guy‘s obviously more informed opinion, also. That’s where I got the link to the commercial.

Drinking

We went to a bar last night. Kire and I had our drinking showdown, and unfortunately, there was no decided winner. The glasses were small, so we decided to use two. It’s not an excuse, but the rules of the race were a bit different for me. I’ve never done two glasses before. We had to start with the glasses on the table instead of in our hand. The glasses were REALLY full. So anyway, I finished first, but spilled some of the second glass. It was decided to call it a draw for now. We did do another less official race later in the night with only one glass. I just wailed on him for that one. He had some sort of problem that time, though.

Now, I am tired and hungover, ate caviar this morning and have a meeting in 5 minutes.

8-Bit Theater

Kind of neat for anyone that knows Final Fantasy.

I’d Like 2 Tacos

Doesn’t it feel strange to order tacos at Burger King? Every time I do it, I end up laughing into the speaker-thing. Ordering chili isn’t much better.

So yeah, I went to Burger King today. The woman that took my order was rude and short with me, but I didn’t take too much notice until I got up to the window. I had seen this woman before, but not here. I saw her at Arby’s, and she was rude there, too. We had dined in at Arby’s some time ago and had to interact with her face to face. She was horrible. She was annoyingly bad. Apparently other people thought so, too, because she’s working at Burger King, now. Unless she works at Arby’s and Burger King. I’m not sure which is worse.

Wow, this is just depressing…

Uhm, what should we do with people in the U.S. that can’t even locate the U.S. on a map? Yep, that’s right… 11% of U.S. citizens surveyed couldn’t even find their own country on a map. That particular result, along with the rest of the results from a National Geographic survey are just so frightening. I didn’t know it was that bad.

BMW Films

Season 2 of BMW Films! Beat The Devil isn’t too great, but the other two are good. Did everyone see Season 1? Them were some damn fine film shorts.
