Once again I awoke wishing that I hadn’t. Then upon trying to enter my office I spilled black coffee all over my white shirt. Luckily I have a spare shirt or two in the office but this is not how I want to start my day.
I Know When To Go Out, I Know When To Stay In
I had a paid ticket for the Robyn Hitchcock show last night.
I really wanted to go.
But the thought of being miserable with a runny nose and trying to not drink beer was too much for me to handle.
So I stayed home again.
I am not having much fun right now.
Somehow I Don’t They Don’t Think The Meant What They Wrote
Yesterday I was reading an article about food photography when this sentence made me stop, laugh, and then re-read it to make sure I saw what I thought I saw. Play editor for a moment and read the following sentence.
Pay attention not only to the arrangement of the food itself but to the context that you put it in including the plate or bowel and any table settings around it.
Did you see what caught my eye? If not, I think that the author meant “bowl” and not “bowel”, they are after all two very different things…

I tried setting up Paulie’s Ghetto Studio last night, but my lack of patience (imagine that being that I am sick and all) led quickly to frustration so I quit.
I Think They Figured Out A Class-Action Lawsuit Might Be Headed Their Way
Remember how I’ve griped about my BlackJack’s battery life? Seems I am not the only one. Yesterday a fellow Blackjack owner told me of a free longer-life battery and battery cover upgrade being offered by Cingular (AT&T). After getting frustrated trying to find this offer on Cingular’s webpage I Googled the terms “blackjack extended battery offer cingular” and found a link to get in on the deal.
I’ve since turned off enough features to make my life with the BlackJack okay, but if Cingular is going to give me this for “free”, then why shouldn’t I take it.
