You’ve Got Something Hanging… No, On The Right Side

The overly-observant of you may have noticed a few additions to the Inside The Perimeter right sidebar. I have added “Voyeurville” where I will place links to other blogs I enjoy reading, and “Etc, Etc, Etc” where I will place my website Hall Of Fame (read “places I spend too much time”). Yes, they are both rather, um barren ;), but like some of the best things in life give them a little time and they will grow.

If You Had $50 At…
How would you spend it? I have a $50 rebate (which expires on March 2nd) and can’t seem to figure out how to spend it. Now before every comments about me buying them something tough titties, this one is for me. 🙂 I am still curious to know, however.

My Child Is An Honor Student, And They Go To School In This Volvo
I have to start getting out of the house earlier again. I refuse to give up my new routine of stopping in for my morning coffee and worshipping Ellen at Joe’s Coffee Shop, but Holy Hell (Batman) I cannot stand the traffic around whatever elementary school is near the intersection of Highland and North Decatur. Why must all these parents drive their children to school? What will they be telling their children in thirty years or so? “You know Tread&sup1, when I was a child we had to get into Grandma’s Volvo and sit there while she drove us to school. We didn’t have personal jet-packs like you kids today.”

&sup1 : It is my belief that “Tread” will be an ultra-cool name for a future generation

Yes, As A Matter Of Fact I Was Staring At You
Ladies, I have been looking at you in your cars for as long as I remember. If you catch me with an “extended glance”, ie staring, you don’t have to look so damn indignant. Believe it or not, I am doing it because I think you look pretty, not because I see a booger hanging from your nose or anything. Relax, Uh-kay. (said in the voice of Mr. Mackey from South Park)

Fill ‘Er Up!
10,000 songs my ass! Ok, I know that’s the advertised max my iPod can hold when songs are encoded at 128 Kbps. But my ears need more quality, so the lion’s share of my collection has been ripped to 160 Kbps (and would be 192 Kbps or higher if I was smarter). Last night I kicked off a download of as much of my music collection (in reverse chronological order) I could to my iPod. The result after four hours (damn USB 1.1 connection!) of downloading? I was able to download from …And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead’s “World Apart” to Led Zeppelin’s “In Through The Out Door”. That’s 2005 through 1979 for those of you keeping score at home.

Websites Of The Week (my name is Paulie and I have endorsed this message)
Here are some websites that I have visited during the week. It’s a short list this week, but believe it or not, shorter can be better…

  • Sarah Lane’s Blog: The beautiful and nerdy host of G4’s “The Screen Savers.” The show has gone to hell in a handbasket but I still drop by her blog occassionally
  • The Twisted Ankle Half Marathon: Want to see one of the dumb things on my plate for this spring? Sure, I am a whimp — I only plan to run the half marathon

And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – Ret’ to go…. Who’s with me?
Current Music – Sirius Satellite Radio, Channel 26 playing Morrissey – “First Of The Gang To Die”
Current Read – nothing currently

  1. I am honored that I am the first to be linked to Voyeurville. Very appropriate don’t you think? 😉 Holy avoidance Bruce Wayne, you need to answer my questions. You said you needed time. You had all night while reminiscing through the 80’s, 90’s, and the 20 aughts.

    Give me the 50 bucks. It will be well worth your money in my opinions, not to mention I love the box.

    Worshipping huh? May have to take a trip to the coffee shop to see what has caught your attention.

    I actually take it as a compliment when I am stared at. Especially when I’m not doing something stupid 😉

    Let’s go! and pick up a damn book!

    Answers will come in time AG, in time…

    Worshipping is really a joke. I am trying to see who reads this stuff. 🙂

    I’ve had no time for books! I’ve been sleeping like nobody’s business.

  3. I’m not a very patient woman. But I will attempt this on your behalf. Don’t get used to it.

    So are you in the hopes that the object of your affections might be reading this?

    “Hi Ellen, how are you? My name is Ananonymousgirl. My pal Paulie here is a damn witty fella. Sit down and have a cup of java with him next time he strolls in” 😉

    Hey – Paulie – just because you have Sasquatch syndrome doesn’t mean you need to hibernate.

  4. Paulie says:

    Actually, what’s really funny is that Ellen is just a really sweet girl who works at the coffee shop; she’s not really an object of my affection. ’tis true! But thanks for playing wingman. 🙂

  5. I’ve got your back Batman.

    This will shock you, but I find Chi-Lan Lieu much more attractive than Sarah Lane.

  7. Paulie says:

    It’s nice to know that some things will always be “right” in the Universe. 🙂
