Out of the Blue

The flakiness of the internet connection to the BlueTower went from bad to worse this morning, as the cable went down entirely. Fortunately, I keep my feathers numbered for just such an eventuality. No wait, it's that I keep a DSL connection on standby for just such an eventuality, so things are trucking on once again.

So I ordered my mother a PC from newegg on monday to replace a six-year-old dell and it arrived on thursday (newegg!), and on the cheap mouse which it included mouse4 (the side button closer to the wrist) is actually "forward" and mouse5 is actually "back". Years of standardization out the door!

Man, those "retro" cereals sure make me feel old - mostly because I was in my 20's when most of them came out.

Where is Quisp and Quake? I remember Quisp was my favorite. Don't think I ever had Quake. Until 1996 anyway!

Every time you open a box of Quake cereal you can hear Trent Reznor sing "I want to TASTE you from the INSIDE!!!!"

I've come up with new ice cream flavours:

So...I got the itch in the middle of the night...and I went to the local grocer, and I saw that they brought back "Everything But The...." Ben and Jerry's.

I only see this ice cream every 2-3 years....AND IT IS ON SALE!
Load up the freezer kids!
The best ice cream ever made is back!

So, I sat on a hill in the dark, watched the storm approach, eating my ice cream.......in my squad car. hehehehehehhe

Golf Pros try to hit Gong from 200 yards away.

170-175, 10 golf balls, I could probably do it.
200 I am not accurate enough.

How many hipsters does it take to screw in a lightbulb?

Oh, it's a pretty obscure number. You've probably never heard of it.
