This is a total rant. Nothing of value here other than ranting, so if you don’t feel like reading a rant, skip this. (Of course, you can check the post for the awesome salad dressing recipe found within, but don’t bother reading anything else if you don’t want to read a rant.) I’m getting sick… Read more Seriously, What Can I Eat?
I belong to more than a few email groups. Usually, these are for subjects I wish to learn on: psychology, health, writing, philosophy, etc. Recently I joined a particular health group because I wanted to find out more about a particular condition, one that isn’t well studied but which is being revealed as being more… Read more So, When Should I Start Caring?
A few weeks ago I was riding with a friend in his car, a 2000 Lexus something or other. It’s a nice car, very quiet; not much noise makes it to the cabin from the road. At one point in the ride we’re chatting, talking normally, when all of a sudden he gets a phone… Read more Why Do People Feel the Need to Shout Into Their Cell Phone?
Talk about one heck of a week! I know you probably haven’t been wondering about why I haven’t posted all that much recently (well, other than “why hasn’t Gnorb posted more? Hmm…”), but I’ll explain anyway. This has been one really screwy week. I’ll start with last night and sort of jump around from there.
I just finished watching the first season of the new Sci-Fi Chanel version of Battlestar Gallactica. I wrote about it before, after having seen the opening movie, and while I wasn’t too impressed, I liked what I saw. (Luckily in sci-fi there are only two kinds of movies: good movies and funny movies. The first… Read more Battlestar Galactica, Season 1 Observations
As I’ve admitted before, I have a penchant for doing those tests which pigeonhole you into a particular category. Some are good, some are hilarious, and most just plain suck. Ever since I joined MySpace a week (or so) ago, I’ve seen more of those things than I could have possibly ever imagined. Seriously, it’s… Read more MySpace: Pigeonhole Madness and Web Design Insanity
A couple of weeks back I got an email from a friend. The email, which seemed frantic at best, ignored most of the laws of conventional English in that there were no capitalizations, no complete sentences, and all punctuations were replaced with ellipses (…). As I read it, my heart began to race, my blood… Read more MySpace…for the attention whore…in all of us…hahahaha…j/k
What follows is an English lesson. If you are a blogger, write for any sort of Internet website, or are a writer in the sports world, this post is for you. This post is also for the rest of us who are tired of your constant violation of the English language. Read the following sentences… Read more Since When is a Plurally-Referenced Singular Acceptable?
This is a follow up to this article (Anti-Muslim Cartoon Exposes Media Hypocrisy): Depicting Muhammed in a manner that might be offensive is not only taboo, it’s not proper use of “freedom of speech.” But offending Christians by purposely depicting Jesus insultingly? Well if that’s not freedom of speech then I don’t know what is!… Read more Follow Up: Anti-Muslim Cartoons are a No-No, but Anti-Christian? Have At It!
You know, I really need to get one of those “mood” things to indicate how I feel when I write about something. Frankly, that’d probably make my life easier; I wouldn’t have to explain myself as much. (Not like I don’t do that anyway in real life, almost to the point of confusion.) So here… Read more Merry Chr.. err… Happy Hol… uhm… Hi.
