So today I was discussing OS’ with a friend and came to WindowsME. My take was as follows:
I had to support it. My mom ended up with WindowsME for a year or so. It was like… having sex, with a camel, while wearing a tutu that didn’t fit and then wrapping yourself in rubber until you couldn’t breathe. WHAT WAS THE POINT OF THE CAMEL? That’s what I wanna know.
Still not writing. Wrist is too off its game to give in. Which sucks, because I am working on a novel so geektastic, so fantastic and so “other things that are -tastic” I can hardly stand to not share it with everyone I talk to.
And finally, saw this s an icon, need to make note of it here.
Hitler knows a good groove when he hears one.
I will not be around during the day next week as I have Jury Duty. Sorry about that. It isn’t that I mind doing my civic duty, I don’t, but I am just not in the mood and don’t have time and argh!
I have been playing Mario Kart on the Wii, over at Hammerpants’ place. I do not own a Wii, so I must go to other places to enjoy it. The character I am the best with? Princess. On her normal dirt bike. Which says something I am sure. Also I have noticed that the outfit she wears looks kinda like she’s a member of Voltron.
I noticed this and pointed it out. At which point I decided that she forms the appendix. We’re sorry, Princess, but your purpose in life is in another castle…
I spent a bunch of time last night fixing Trista’s computer last night. Brought it back to life. So if you see her on the intardwebs it is, officially now, my fault. Not that whatever she does is my fault, oh no she doesn’t get a big blank check like that.
And then there is today’s XKCD which is so sadly true.
More later when I can think.
Here is a site that is simply a collection of bad Spock drawings.
Toilets of the World is a book by Morna E. Gregory and Sian James. It’s a travel guide and, I suppose resource for people who want to know what toilets in other places are like.
Here is a video compilation of 231 fatalities from various Mortal Kombat games. Why? Because it’s kinda funny.
Best item on Think Geek yet? It’s an Invincible Star from Mario. Touch it and it plays the invincible music for 17 seconds. After which you are once again only mortal. I… I need one.
I leave you with one of the best ideas I’ve seen in a while. I need to do this. So do you:
Yes, 950,000 volt “Blast Knuckles”. On sale for only $79.97 if you act now. I think I need a pair. Maybe two. Just for the fun of it. They’re like clown buzzers, for the fucked up.
Of course please note:
Stun Guns are currently legal but with restrictions in the following areas:
State: CT, FL, IN, NC, ND, OH and WA.
Stun Guns are prohibited in the following areas:
State: DC, HI, IL, MA, MI, NJ, NY, RI and WI.
City: Annapolis, Baltimore and Philadelphia.
County: Howard County, MD.
So no Batman electro-knuckles for me. I am sad now.
Not much to report. Feel like crap. Didn’t go anywhere yesterday. Trying to get the gumption to gear up for a bunch of stuff.
For those of you going to Lunacon I will be on the following panels:
Friday the 14th at 4pm – The real story behind our short exile from the Escher Hilton. (Gazebo C) There is no Track 51. Move along. (Note, Track 51 means it is a crazy panel about conspiracies)
Friday the 14th at 11:30pm – Reading (Port Chester). Oh yes, I can read now. Soon? I’ll learn how to wri… oh.
Saturday the 15th at noon – YouTubed: The Year in Viral Videos (Maple). C’mon! You know, there’s a chance we’ll be reenacting many of the videos, so hope for treadmills.
Saturday the 15th at 4pm – The Author as Sadist: Torturing Your Characters (Poplar). I might resemble that remark. All you Strange angel readers out there, stop nodding!
Saturday the 15th at 9pm – I Can Haz Conspiracy? (Boton). All about conspiracies, but with a title like that I might prepare lolcats to demonstrate a few. Do you want to miss lolcat conspiracy theatre? I don’t think that you do. Of course it is opposite the Masquerade, so everyone will miss it.
I will also be manning a table in the Dealer’s Room where, supposedly, I will have a new book out. Come by, say hello, uhm… ’cause why not?
And now a clown urinal that moves.
Fair warning: This week and next this blog will slow the fuck down to sub-light speeds as I focus on some writing projects that need more attention. Not saying “no posts” just saying “god knows how often”. So don’t be surprised if I drop off the face of the Earth for a few days at a time.
In other news: I am super-extra helpful as the second player in super Mario Galaxy. By which I mean I can make your life living, hysterical, hell if you let me play with you.
In yet other news: I got to introduce yet someone else to Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. On Christmas, no less.
In yet more other news: Go enjoy a chainsaw powered motorcycle.
You ave never seen a jet do the things you are about to see. Welcome to the Su-30MKI.
First I give you Sony’s best mis-naming ever. They have a new product. It is a carrying case for the Cybershot camera, series W and T.
Soft Leather Carrying Case LCS-TWA/T
Model Number: LCS-TWA/T
Yup, go buy the Sony TWA/T case soon. Hold your camera in your big, soft, leather TWA/T.
Whizzy the Rainbow Horse of Joy wants a TWA/T, too.
I want this to be fake. I don’t think it’s fake. It is not fake. Introducing Men’s SOM! The new Japanese masturbation machine. Because sometimes you’re too lazy to use your own hand, so instead stick it in this hand shaped blender device.
I love the Japanese. This video is probably NSFW, but no cocks shown or anything. It’s Japanese TV. Ya know? Anyway! Here is the informercial for Men’s SOM.
