So why not you. Doctor Who and the Beatles

So why not you. Doctor Who and the Beatles
No I'm not, what I'm thinking of is how nice it is outside. I think I'll take the dog for a walk.
If it weren't for the word "men" this would read like my obituary.: "'More than 100 Tainan city residents, mostly men, have reportedly gone to see the corpse to 'experience' the size of its penis,' the newspaper reported."
I just mailed in my taxes. I will not be blogging any more today as I will be busy applying ice and topical antiseptic for the remainer of the day.
W.A.T.C.H. world against toys causing harm, inc.: "balloons themselves pose a recognized choking hazard in the hands of children."
The great big, half-dead Willow tree in my front yard came crashing down yesterday as a result of a plot by the non-carbon neutral fascist Bush administration to raise the temperature of our Mother Earth so we can use less of the oil we stole from the rightful owners of Iraq heating our homes and more of it in our giant SUVs.
It's hard to get psyched for blogging when you are potty training a two-year-old boy and you have to end every sentence with, "Do you have to pee? Are you sure? Do you have to poop? Are you sure?".
I've spent a considerable amount of time creating my media server, but if all you want to do is to listen to your mp3 library through your stereo a tunecasting device is probably the way to go. Cool Tools found one they really liked, the
Whoo! Watched The Day after Tomorrow last night. Well, parts of it anyway. What a stinker. Still, watching New York get flooded and frozen was kinda fun, not as much fun as watching it get stomped by a giant lizard or huge gorililililila, but still fun.
First, the geek stuff...
Had to post, so waste the rest of your workday with this list. America's Favorite Architecture I skipped the first page, it's all New York and DC, and pretty easy guesses. I'm really shocked that Chicago doesn't make the list until after Philly, but hell, I'll take it. Somebody holler if the Masonic Temple in Philly is on the list.
My time of the month, I guess. I'm absolutley miserable. This doesn't happen as often as it used to so I guess that's why I feel it more. By that I mean, it's a noticable change like being trapped in a room wih beautiful french doors, but there locked and some jerk spraypainted them so you can't see out. Really takes the ol' spring out of the step.
Someone scheduled a meeting today, 2 hours long, at noon. I will be conferenced in from my basement and driving the meeting, they will be in a conference room 300 miles away eating a catered lunch. I hope someone chokes.
I got my Wireless card to work under Elive this morning. I'm psyched. What this means is I'm going to go all Linux. I'll be turning this old beast into a media server using Twonkyvision. Then I'm going to upgrade the old workstation to Elive. Just as soon as I can get iTunes to work under Linux (for the record, I couldn't get it to work under WINE, but there's a hack out there by CodeWeavers called CrossoverOffice that is supposed to work.
According to the weather guys, it's going to be 62 here today. I am going outside. Skippy and I are all dressed up and ready to play in the mud. So this is what you get for today.

Guess who gave up ice cream for Lent?
Here's a reminder of what all the fuss is about. Can't wait to see his holiness on Larry King tonight,
Awaiting pardon. In four out of five counts. I can't get to Firedoglake, but Maguire is still up.
I've posted before about how mid-day flyers are different than morning
Seriously. Dress better.
I'm not talking about the children, that can't be helped, but there's
a girl here who looks to be about 20 in pajamas. Not clothes that
look like pajamas, but pajamas. And flip-flops.
There's another girl, her freind I think, wearing sweats with "Love
Pink" written on the ass. That's special. And lots of fake jewelry.
How long do you think it took her to get through security? God, her
father must be so proud.
You all gotta understand that If she was one of those people who could
pull off the look I wouldn't be mentioning her at all, but she can't
so I am.
So now a confession. I left the restroom about half an hour ago and
just now noticed the ol barn door was open. I'm wearing a jacket, so
I don't think anyone noticed, so there was no fainting, but there were
a few women who looked afraid. I'm sure you know how it is.
Anyway, I'm accepting the fact that my wang has been flashing around
the terminal for half an hour, and I'm ready to believe that the
reason, Ms Pink has been wandering back and forth in front of my chair
is because,well, she's impressed.
And she should be.
That's my story and I'm sticking with it, otherwise I'd be in tears in
the corner. In a fetal position and scratching my cheeks.
SO LET ME HAVE MY DREAM PEOPLE!
About a year ago I posted on a milestone in the life of maddad. I wore my jeans with the 34 inch waist. Now I fit fine into those mammajammas, but for several reasons i decided I'd stick to the 36s for the rest of my life.
Why four flights at one gate? Why?
Why do all Romans have British accents?
