Blah for 2002.06


Either it’s been a busy day, or I’m slacking off here.... I vote for busy day.


I think my brother, Adam, has more friends than the phone book has numbers.


I need something to say.... Oh well.


“I Pledge Allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

There, was that so hard to say? And I’m not even religious. [More...]


Very worthwhile: 30 days to a more accessible weblog. (And you can substitute “weblog” for “Web site”.)


Looking at my site’s log reports, I’ve got to wonder: How come the hourly visits spike at 3a.m. and 4p.m.? Strange.


Sometimes I think of odd things. Like what if Tso never became a General? Would it be Colonel Tso’s Chicken? Or even First Lieutenant Tso’s Chicken?


Pick one, drought or deluge, and stick with it. Why do we have to have flooding one part of the year, and water restrictions the next?


A whole day of cleaning the apartment.... Who the hell invented dust?!


This idea came to me as I was starting to fall asleep last night.... What if someone were to make Transformers out of Star Wars vehicles? Like the AT-ATs, X-Wing Fighters, even Star Destroyers. And thinking about that, how it basically combines two of our (me and my brother) favorite toys when we were kids, I thought about what if someone were to make these out of Legos?


After watching Return Of The Jedi again recently, I noticed that it seemed like all the Emperor did with his time was to sit in that big chair and stare out into space. All those years and all that energy to become the Emperor of the galaxy, and he just sits there in a drab chair in a drab room staring out into drab space.

Now, if I were the Emperor, hell, everyday would be party day. I’d be cruising around the galaxy in a big party spaceship, visiting all the planets, and having a good time. I mean, what’s the point in spending all your life to become the Emperor, and then just sit there all bored?

... And yes, today was laundry day and I couldn’t think of anything else to put here.


Why do some interviews make me feel like a dinosaur?


Note to self: Try not to miss any days writing to “Blah”.


You know how nowadays with all these remote, key-less entry devices for cars; and how everybody always “beeps” their car (which usually also flashes the car’s lights) when they leave it? Well wouldn’t it be funny, for a comedy show or something, if someone were to “beep” their house when they leave it? You see them turn around, point their key-less entry device at the house, the house makes the beep sound like a car, and even the lights inside the house flash on and off. And there's more fun if you think about the house having an alarm like a car: what if a bird lands (or a cat jumps) on your house, will the alarm go off? And it would give new meaning to kids throwing eggs at empty houses on Halloween night.


Another interview... another hope for a job.


Remind me to mention my dream last night.


Why do telemarketers say that it’s a “courtesy call”? It’s not a “courtesy call” to me, especially when I’m unemployed and hope every phone call is someone wanting to give me a job.


Sleeping in late. Having a big breakfast of scrambled eggs with ham and corn biscuits. Relaxing on the couch reading the newspaper and watching whatever’s on TV. Taking a nap. Parents inviting you over for dinner. It’s what a lazy Sunday is all about.


It’s rainy days like this that make me say “blah”.


So you know how it goes, you start following links on the Web, and the next thing you know, you’re reading another interpretation of Hamlet.


Czar make joke. That's just one anagram of Joe Kaczmarek I found at Internet Anagram Server.


zzzzz zzzzz zzzzz


I wish I had insomnia, because there just aren’t enough hours in the day. But I tend to have the opposite, for I sure do like to sle... ... zzzzz zzzzz zzzzz


Today I had an inspiration: After so long of not finding an HTML editor that I really like (except of course BBEdit, which is only available on a Mac), I suddenly had an idea to try to make my own HTML editor in Visual Basic... thereby also applying what I’m learning in class. I’m sure it’s going to take me a long time to build it, but if I get it all working, then it’ll be cool for me.


Yes, I do use IMDb to do tv guide crosswords. It’s easier that way.


Tonight Judy and I are going to bachelor and bachelorette parties for two friends of hers who are getting married. I’ve never been to a bachelor party before, and I’m hoping it doesn’t turn out like Very Bad Things. (Those who have seen it should laugh, those who haven’t should rent it.)
