Almost… ALMOST… the weekend…

Sitting at school, reading the captions y’all left me. Fun stuff, laughed I did, thank you. It looks like Tony Pierce graced my comments. It’s cool to think of Tony reading my blog, but then I’m happy to know that YOU are reading (and YOU and YOU and YOU).

Happy to see the weekend is almost upon us. Not much planned, but then I take a great amount of pride in that these days. I’ll get two whole days with my baby and NFL Sunday.

On that happy note, let me once again take moment to recognize the folks in California who are not as fortunate as yours truly atm. Our prayers and happy thoughts are still with you, and no I’m not as fundamentalist as the crazy folks Melissa mentioned. (This story is a must read, oh the controversy, O the stupidity, I think I could scare that pastor straight no problem)

Gator IS Spyware

Hope everyone had an enjoyable weekend, I know mine felt fairly productive and I even got to sleep some. Caught Kill Bill (but y’all know that) also managed to see the Texas Chainsaw Massacre (which I’ll review here later). As this is another brief lunchtime update I wanted to point out a few items that you should checkout around the `net:

Da Goddess gives us a closeup view of what the California forest fires are like. Her pictures are as amazing as they are serious in topic and while I envy her camera prowess, I don’t know if I’d want to live that close to all the action. I’m sending prayers & happy thoughts her way and hope that the disaster can be contained.

Jason has a new layout & review up. I’m happy that it was a rap band he eviscerated and not me as I don’t ever want to hear my name and the word “flaccid” used again in the same sentence. *chuckle*

Mr. Perry’s new website No Blood, No Foul is set to launch this evening. Be sure to show up for the premiere as I’m betting it will be a must-see Net event.

Ryan (The Ward) pointed out this story I somehow missed recently. In fact, he had to post it in invisible ink because Gator lawyers think they can strong arm anyone. It seems Gator Corporation doesn’t like their SPYWARE being called spyware. Apparently, they’re taking advantage of the fact that our judicial system is clueless when it comes to technology and suing anyone who dares to refuse the term “adware” when talking about their products. Well guess what?

Gator is spyware, Gator IS spyware, Gator is SPYWARE, Gator manufactures nothing but spyware products.

Gator is spyware, Gator IS spyware, Gator is SPYWARE, Gator manufactures nothing but spyware products.

Gator is spyware, Gator IS spyware, Gator is SPYWARE, Gator manufactures nothing but spyware products.

Gator is spyware, Gator IS spyware, Gator is SPYWARE, Gator manufactures nothing but spyware products.

Gator is spyware, Gator IS spyware, Gator is SPYWARE, Gator manufactures nothing but spyware products.

Gator is spyware, Gator IS spyware, Gator is SPYWARE, Gator manufactures nothing but spyware products.

Google that ya dumb bastards. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had to remove Gator software in the corporate environment AND from personal computers of friends & family. You can make claims about user acknowledgement all you want, but the bottom line is Gator develops, sells and regurgitates spyware. It’s a shitty product built by a shitty company with unethical business practices. Same goes for the pricks.

Alrighty, lunchtime is over.

Tag Team Blog Entry – Acidman

Today’s tag team blog entry is inspired by Acidman who posted these ten questions yesterday. I answered in his comments, but you know the drill – it’s Friday and I need content… heh heh. So without any further delay, Acidman asks:

1. Does anybody really see a correlation between the size of a man’s feet or his nose and the size of his penis?
Don’t know about anyone else, but Michelle isn’t complaining. It pays to be a well-rounded lover.

2. If you are a woman, would you ever get a tit-job? If so, why?
Speaking as a guy, I prefer a nice juicy butt to boobies. Michelle can get one if she wants, but I’d never ask her to do it for me.

3. If you are a man, would you buy a bionic Roscoe if your dick quit working? If so, why?
I’d put a splint on the little guy if that’s all I had to work with.

4. Did you ever sleep with someone and wake up in the morning unable to remember their name? If not, WHY NOT?
No, but I dated Katy, Cat, Kathy, Catherine, Karen & Kelly in succession so there were plenty of times when I screwed up the names just in conversation.

5. Which would you rather have for a pet? A DOG or a CAT? If you answer “cat,” you’ve got some serious explaining to do.
Up until recently I’ve always had both. Right now I have five cats, but the moment Michelle & I are in a bigger place we’ll be getting a pair of big dogs too. I miss my Elkhound & German Sheperd.

6. Do you eat grits for breakfast?
What’s breakfast? I’m lucky to swallow two eggs & some OJ on my way out to work.

7. What is the most dumb-ass thing you ever did in your life? Was it fun or has it haunted you for years?
This question could be several blog entries for me. For this comment I’ll say dropping out of college. I shouldn’t have been so stubborn when my mother nagged me to stay in school. It would’ve saved me the hassle of working plus night classes in my thirties.

8. Do you exceed the speed limit regularly when you drive, or just do it occasionally? Don’t tell me that you NEVER SPEED you lying shit! Tell the truth!
I got my first speeding ticket on a motorcycle when I was twelve. Yeah, I got a lead foot.

9. Describe the happiest day you can remember living.
The day I proposed to my Michelle. She responded with “So you think you can handle me huh?”

10. Do you believe that some things are worth dying for? If so, name one thing worth dying for and tell me why you feel so strongly about it.
Without hesitation I’d take a bullet for family or friends. I was also the guy that smacked the bully over the head with a chair when he was takin’ other kids lunch money. I didn’t win a lot of fights when I was younger, but I never backed down from one.

Feel free to add your answers here or visit Acidman’s original entry. (Or use that Trackback thingie, that’s always fun)

Oral Sex Prevents Breast Cancer

Dear God,

Have you read the news?

As Found On CNN: Fellatio may significantly decrease the risk of breast cancer in women. (Thanks to Rick for the link)

Now that?s research I can get behind, unlike that whole cookie crumble mess.

I just wanted to say that I know I had a string of bad days and took it out on the blog. Sometimes it?s good to vent, but once the smoke subsides and your mood hits the calm, you realize there are other folks who have shitty days worse than yours.

I was indeed humbled yesterday. Yes, perception is reality and my crappy day was just that – ONE DAY. Nothing compared to someone who?s recently experienced a miscarriage, lost their job, suffered the beating from a ?loved? one or been involved in a horrific accident.

Thank you for reminding me to be appreciate life?s gifts and not to focus on the negativity. Michelle still loves me, cash in-flow has been consistent and the long hours at work & school will pay off come next spring.

In closing, I would ask that you help those that need it the most and can you please do something about folks who just don’t want to take responsibility for their actions? Really, I’m tired of people using the entertainment industry as a cop out for their behavior, but that’s a rant for another day.
