The Password Is: “Backup”

I had a minor scare yesterday. Thanks to all that let me know that there was a blog problem. According to the good folks at Dreamhost one of my database tables became corrupted.

This incident has once again brought my lack of proper data corralling and backing up to the top of my “To Do” list.

Rack ‘Em Up!
Last night I used (and abused) Jill to take back roads to the house of my friends Barb and Allan. At one point I was driving on Terrill Mill and gawked at the incredibly large monstrosities that are being erected. These mansions were hotel-sized, but probably targeted at millionaire TINKs. Americans are stupid.

The purpose of the trip was to pick up my mountain bike which had been overhauled by master mechanic Allan. This was the same bike that last sat upon the top of the Jackmobile when I ran into the overhang which yanked the rack from its roof. I am glad to say that the rack survived its maiden voyage by successfully helped transport the bike home without incident.

The secondary purpose of the trip was to eat a good meal at a friends’ house. Who am I to decline a meal when offered? Dinner was a delicious concoction of vegetables, spaghetti and countless spices. And of course alcohol was consumed.

Thanks again Barb, dinner was great.

At this point I almost don’t care about a single person left in the house. These people bore me.

The Cast — In No Particular Order
Dick: Stop being such a dick. Stop spewing venom (and iced tea for that matter) on Jen; in case you can’t remember, she is not your daughter — Daniele is. btw- Tommy Lee called, he wants his fifteen minutes of fame back.
Daniele: You win. You are gorgeous. Now grow up. I can’t wait for your next reality show when you leave the house and have to confront your “boyfriend.”
Jen: You are beautiful — and then you open your mouth.
Nick: Huh? Wha? Oh. Good-bye.
Little Nicky, aka Eric: Stop trying to be “everything for everybody” and STFU. We are all sorry that your SuperStrategy was spoiled by CBS’ desire to make you America’s Pawn. Deal with it.
Jessica: I never liked you and now with your adversary gone you are pointless.
Waahmber: OMFG if I have to see you ball you fucking eyes out again I might blind myself with an ice pick.
Jameka: A black hole of nothingness. Praise Jesus!
Zack: You scare me like the frat brothers I thankfully never had. Every time you look into the camera Amber cries.
Nick: You were Joe’s boyfriend and now keep talking about your girlfriend? Color me confused.
Kail: You are like vanilla yogurt. Plain, looks like I’d enjoy having some of it, but in the end disappoints.

What did we learn last night kids? When facing elimination as another Back Door Man perhaps shaving a mohawk onto your head so that you look like Robert De Niro at the end of Taxi Driver may not be the best idea. At least you inspired Little Nicky to get a Jewhawk and we didn’t even have to vote for that. Sweet Chicken! It could get no worse, could it? Why yes it could. Upon getting voted out you have to sit next to Chenbot and hear Daniele give you the showmance blowoff by calling you her BFF. I think that she’s now ready for some time in the sack with Zack. Sorry to break it to you this way bro. You are lucky that you weren’t playing against Chill Town.

Nice boring HoH competition, CBS. Let’s end the show by seeing the house guests hanging upside-down, swinging on pendulums, and getting “poopied” on by the CBS blackbirds. Sure I’ll head to your website to find out who won HoH, right after I get done removing Big Brother 8 from my DVR’s list of timers.

I’m really on the fence about whether or not I am going to continue with this. I really don’t see it getting any better.

What would you get if you poured this over chicken?

Sugar, Sucre, Sucre

Sweet Chicken! of course.

The Duke Of EARL
Whoever is working the bookings at The EARL is doing a fine job (imho). Tonight I will be there for The Mooney Suzuki show. I am planning on going camera-less because I just don’t want to deal with bring up the dslr and the new p&s has not been unboxed and charged up.

And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – fair
Current Music – Sirius Satellite Radio, Channel 26 playing Patti Smith — “When Doves Cry” (stick with the Prince version)
Website Of The Day – Morgan Webb (oooh yeah) has a daily video podcast called Webb Alert.
Exercise (b)Log – nothing, it was a rest day
Monthly Mileage – 4 miles
Mode Of Transportation To Work – My car

August Goals
1) Get my first Ruby / Ruby on Rails program written
3) Lose 5 pounds (if at first, second, third, fourth, you don’t succeed….)

    Yeah- the guy at the EARL is doing a great job…of booking bands I want to see when there is no possible way I can go to the shows (re: Tenement Halls)!
    Sorry…had to do a little bit o’ whinging ;)!
    Will you be at Hog Mountain on Sunday? Hmmmm???

  2. I think that I will be doing Hog Mountain, even though it will be the third time this year that I’ve been to a hash that started at that boat ramp. :/

    I’m glad you liked dinner, anytime you want to venture to Marietta, we are usually cooking up something good.
    Let me know how the jalapenos are, I’m thinking about making some salsa this weekend.

    Phil and I have come to the same conclusion as you with BB8: is there NO ONE likeable in this house?!

    The funniest thing? I actually like JEN! She takes every negative and makes it positive: wearing that stupid red suit as if it really were a prize (and now Jessica’s wearing it too!); saying she’s OK with being on slop so it can help her lose weight; taking iced tea over her head like a champ. And all at the same time being “hated by the whole house.” Well, shoot – I’m rooting for her now!

    If I were the producers, I’d snatch up Danielle’s boyfriend (soon to be ex if he has any sense of pride) and have him be on another show. Wow. I always thought she was beautiful too but she’s just nasty to do that to a 2-year live-in boyfriend!
