The ‘R’ Is Silent

I’ve determined that it’s very rare when I correctly type the word “your.” So if you ever receive an email from me which contains a line like this

Why don’t we meet at you house at 9.

you should understand that it’s not my New York accent bleeding through, just some mental typing block.

I also have a problem with typing “in the” which always comes out as “int he” thanks to many years of C programming.

Look Who’s Healthy
I received a voicemail from my doctor’s office yesterday giving me the news that I am as healthy as a horse. I’ve got good blood pressure, my urinalysis came back clean, cholesterol levels are fine, no hernia, and nothing unexpected happening where there’s a sign that says “Do Not Enter.” Sure there are the issues of drinking too much and needing to drop some weight, but must we pick nits?

Killer Cereal, Not Cereal Killer
I want to develop an adult cereal. Technically I guess all adults (especially immature ones like myself) can still eat cereal, but I want to develop a fun cereal targeted at adults. I want to develop “Coffee Puffs.” Coffee Puffs would be very similar to Cocoa Puffs but instead of tasting like chocolate they’d taste like coffee. It seems like a natural to add milk and sugar to Coffee Puffs just like you would other bowls of cereal. Once people have Coffee Puffs in their pantry they can kick the Starbucks habit. What time of year do they hand out the Nobel Peace Prize? I’ll keep my schedule open.

My First Trip To Wrigley
Probably won’t happen this year. As I’ve mentioned, I will be in Chicago this summer and as chance would have it the Cubs will be playing home games against the Cardinals while I am in town. Being the ingenious person that I am, I decided to buy a single ticket to the day game to be played on Friday July 28th. Here is where the “best” single seat available is

Damn, that really sucks.

And Don’t Forget
Maigh and I will be hanging around North Highland Pub tonight at 7pm collecting goods for Andy‘s neigbors who lost everything to a house fire last weekend (read more). If you have the time come around, say hello, and bring something for the family or kick in a few bucks.

CD Pick Of The Week
Only four new releases today. With such a slim set of choices I have to pick the Yeah Yeah Yeahs “Show Your Bones” cd. Admittedly I have heard nothing from this disc. What, this doesn’t please you? Then I say go “alternative country” and pick up a copy of Atlanta’s own National Grain‘s self-titled release. You’ll be supporting a local act and that’s never a bad thing.

And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – goofy, cuckoo for Coffee Puffs
Current Music – Sirius Satellite Radio, Channel 26 playing — Cat Power “Living Proof”
Website Of The Day – What’s in a name? Sometimes not much as witnessed by the website Big In Japan which is developing a Web2.0 toolbox for all of us digital carpenters.

If you ever want a quick glance of the sites I’ve picked for my Websites Of The Day, you can check them out on, my user name is InsideThePerimeter (go figure), and they are all tagged as “blogged.”

Exercise (b)Log – nothing

    Thanks for hanging out and collecting.

    I’ll be out of town.

    Perhaps you and Maigh would join me for boozin’ when I return. If all goes to plan, I’ll have some exotic liquor to share!

  2. Paulie says:

    No problem Andy. It’s the least I can do.

    I’d be happy to join you for a little boozin’ when you return.

    Speaking of picking nits, “whose” should be “who’s” Basically you’re saying Who is healthy? Paulie is. Whose underwear is under there? It’s Fruit of the Loom for the other. I can’t help feel like a colossal tool for pointing out grammatical errors on your stuff, but since you were going on about the typo’s I kind of figured this one was a sly joke… Anyhoo – I might swing by NHP tonight around 7 and meet up with y’all and bring something for that family. Unfortunately the site content filter I implemented has labeled Andisheh’s blog as “Pornography” so I can’t read the article. BlueCoat’s filter is tempermental it seems. I’ll have to enter an exception to get the scoop, I guess.

  4. Paulie says:

    Thanks Oliver. That’s why I need an editor. It’s not like I don’t know the rules it’s just that I gloss right over my errors.

  5. Oliver says:

    I do the same. In fact, I spelled temperamental wrong… Good spelling is for loosers (that was (a pretty bad) joke)

  6. shoobie says:

    coffee puffs sound good man… and i dont even drink coffee.

    plus you could have a variety of brands… mocha blend, chocolate cappucino, and whatever else the fuck you caffeine junkies like.

  7. yeah i think you’re really onto something with the coffee puffs concept. seriously. and this is coming from someone who neither eats cereal nor drinks coffee.

    i’ll buy the first box of Coffee Puffs. What a great idea
