Blah for 2002.10


So now I’m getting spam e-mail in languages I don’t even speak. What’s the Internet coming to?


I think that this Halloween we’ll be known as the “Starburst house” because we’ve already eaten all most all of the good chocolate candies.


Of all the personalized license plates I’ve seen, the one I saw tonight has to be one of the most memorable: “HOT SAX”. Insert jokes were necessary.


I don’t think there’s much more I hate than being sick. Nope, not much.


Going on 9 months now, the most popular joke on this site is... (drum roll please)... Southern Slang! That’s right, people sure love their Southern Slang.


I’m going global baby! I know that I’ve already got two fans in Trinidad (Judy’s sisters), and now it appears I’ve got one in Japan. My joke from yesterday’s blah has already been translated into Japanese by Sophia.


I thought up of one of those “how many insert profession does it take to screw in a lightbulb” jokes:

Q. How many Web developers does it take to screw in a lightblub?

A. It only takes one; but he (or she) has to register, set up a server-side script so the next time the lightblub can be changed from a PDA while waiting in an airport, design and build a weblog about the experience of changing the lightblub, make sure the site validates to all current Web standards and works in all the major (and minor) browsers, and submit the site to the major search engines.


Zeldman is doing a redesign... and so far it’s looking interesting.


Now that I’m employed, should I remove (or move down) the “hire” links to my portfolio and résumé?


I’ve been trying to work on some Halloween color styles for this site. Stay tuned.


Does it seem like Survivor is just degrading into the Jerry Springer Show on deserted islands?


Death to all telemarketers!


We’ll have to keep our eye on this to see how it progresses: Man Sues Airlines for Fare Access.


Ooooh... Sunday the 13th... scary. What? What’s that? Friday the 13th is supposed to be scary? Oh, nevermind then.


Wired did it.” (And thanks to Mr. Zeldman for that great quote.)


It’s good to have two happy-work days a week: payday is on Wednesday and the end of the work-week is on Friday.


Judy got this joke in her e-mail yesterday, and it’s so funny:

Five Secrets to a Great Relationship:

  1. It is important to find a man who works around the house, occasionally cooks and cleans, and who has a job.
  2. It is important to find a man who makes you laugh.
  3. It is important to find a man who is dependable and doesn’t lie.
  4. It is important to find a man who’s good in bed and who satisfies you.
  5. It is important that these four men never meet.


Some times you feel like a nut... and some times like a Macadamia nut.


That settles it, next semester I’m only taking one class.


The problem isn’t our driving, the problem is that people don’t realize that we own the road. We do. I have the receipt somewhere, I just can’t find it right now.


hey joe
it's wendy
quick typo....for blah...your entry for the '02 Oct' needs to be changed.
right reads the 02 Sept
gotta run

And a special thank you to my helper elves, Judy’s sisters.


Why is it that “bag boys” put your groceries into bags, while “bag ladies” carry all their possessions in bags?


We don’t have a dish washer magnet that says “clean” or “dirty”, but we do have a magnetic poetry kit. Our dishes are now either “ugly” or “not ugly”.
