Sounds like Madonna lyrics, but it was my fortune from the cookie I got last night.
DAMMIT, I Forgot Again!
Today is the fortieth birthday of my former alter-ego wannabe John Cusack. Next year I need to put this into my PDA so I don’t have to update the blog entry.
Stacey, you should pop that child out today so that she’ll have a cool birthday buddy, unless you want to keep cooking until July 22nd…
Kudos, DeKalb County
On Monday I gave registering my car online another shot, and it appeared to have worked swimmingly! Yesterday I received my new $250 sticker in the mail. A one-day turnaround? Very well played, DeKalb County.
Should I Ever Have Another Girlfriend?
As I near the month of my forty-first birthday, I am wondering if it is fitting for me to have another girlfriend. No, this is not my normal rant that I cannot find a woman who wants to be with me (which is still true, just not the point here). Instead I have concerns about the term girlfriend for an adult male.
The term “girlfriend” seems quite natural for those in their teens and twenties. However even with “forty being the new twenty”, or whatever the fuck we are told these days, calling a thirty-plus-year-old woman a girlfriend seems odd to me. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not one of these people that gets all uppity when women are referred to as “girls”, or men are referred to as “boys”, it’s just at this point of my life I am not sure if it is appropriate for me to refer to someone as my “girlfriend.”
I’m probably just overanalyzing this…
To The Way-Back Machine, Peabody
Last night I dusted off the memory banks and found something that I thought I’d never find again.
When I lived in Huntsville, Alabama in the early nineties we used to get a radio station from Nashville pumped in via a radio repeater. I was trying to remember a song I heard back then and the only thing I vaguely remembered that it was either done by a band called Government Cheese, or a band called Gorilla Biscuits; it was the former.
Thanks to the internets, I found a website for Tommy Womack, a member of the band Government Cheese, as well as a (malformed, but corrected below) link to the song I was seeking.
Most people will not understand why I think this song is so great. It has absolutely no relation to my life other than I used to listen to it a lot back in the days when I was trying to find alternatives to the other music that I liked at the time (gee, some things never change).
Odds And Ends
Tomorrow, with any luck, I’ll have a blurb about A Fir-Ju Well and their final show published over at Cable and Tweed, a fine music blog produced locally. Admittedly it’s not the award-winning expose that you expect from this space (lol), but I did what I could.
The Photoshop’s up but the PHP is down…. I’ve yet to figure out what I want to implement in PHP, so I’ve decided to start to learn how to use Photoshop (Photoshop Elements really). So far I’m halfway through Adobe Photoshop Elements 3.0 Classroom In A Book. I’m amazed how much I’ve learned in 150 pages. That’s right, those shitty photographs you’ve been subjected to will soon be getting better.
And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – blah
Current Music – Sirius Satellite Radio, Channel 26 playing The Boy Least Likely To — “Be Gentle With Me”
Website Of The Day – Snipshot could have been a site dedicated to vasectomies or online photo editing. Thankfully it refers to the latter. It’s actually a really cool site, but I am still going to continue to learn Photoshop…
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 del.icio.us, my user name is InsideThePerimeter (go figure), and they are all tagged as “blogged.”
Exercise (b)Log – nothing
