Color SideKick?

Steven notes the release of the color Hiptop, errr, SideKick. If they have a data-only plan, and upgrades to the color version, you can bet your sweet ass I'll be switching as soon as I get back to Florida. I have my greyscale one with me out here, but I've turned it on once. After all, I have wireless in my housing for the weeks and I'm connected during the day, so I haven't needed it. I still have my original greyscale box, so there shouldn't be much of an issue…

Day Three

Day three in California was equally uneventful. Josh bailed on the Pixar trip (the bozo :-P) and Jason and I decided to see Finding Nemo another day. I played around with osascript a little bit (it's fun to make other people's computers do funny things). I ate some 7/11 food (gee, yum).

I've got to find something to do here. Saturday and Sunday perhaps I'll go to San Francisco. Perhaps I'll go to a Giants game this weekend… I don't know. Finding Nemo may be tomorrow.

QotD: Never Buy

Question: What is one thing you'd never buy?

My Answer: Uhhhh, gay porn. Nope, can't see myself buying that. Ever. There are a lot of things I'd never buy for myself, but never buy at all? Gay porn's gotta be top 10, even if I can't think of the other nine right now.

OneWord: Stamp

Stamps are something you use to mail things or give approval. You can stamp something, as in to make a mark as well, kind of like branding cattle. You can stamp on (or stomp on) a fire to get it out, right? Aren't those candle-putter-outers called "stampers" in some way? I don't know. But I am going to stamp some envelopes and mail some bills out tonight, I know that. Stamp stamp stamp.

Day Two

Day two of my stay in CA was largely uneventful. I met Jason for dinner (at the Outback) and picked up some clothing and things. I got a peek at something from my future and am pleased. I called home and spoke with someone who means a great deal to me, and so that made my day.

I forgot to mention that I had a Doug sighting yesterday at 9:03am. There's nothing on TV right now. I am really not looking forward to going to bed. Imagine a pool table with three extra layers of felt and a 1-inch pillow - that's a pretty good description of my bed. It's pretty damn hard.

Tomorrow? More of the same. But maybe I'll see Finding Nemo or Dumbo or something.

QotD: Guilty Pleasure

Question: What's your biggest monetary guilty pleasure?

My Answer: Gadgets. I love to buy gadgets. I got more gadgets today (clothes, actually, though certainly gadget- and tech-related). Oy.

QotD: Muppets

Question: Who is your favorite muppet?

My Answer: Beaker. Kermit was a close second, followed by Gonzo and Animal.

OneWord: Fault

Fault, as in "it's nobody's." I think one of the seven rules for being a successful individual (or whatever that pop culture book - The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Mofos - is named) is to be proactive. To me, being proactive is admitting that you have faults and working to fix them. After all, well, we all have faults and we could all stand to fix them, couldn't we?

Keanu is Generous

Let it be known that you don't have to be a good actor to be a generous human. Wowee. 50,000,000 pounds is a lot of dough to give to the special effects and makeup people. Awesome. After all, without special effects and makeup, Keanu's acting ability would really shine through, wouldn't it? :-)

Life, Part 25

Today was a good day. A new phase of my life begins. I can't say much more than that - nor would I want to - but it's good. Things worked out well. Well, except for the fact that I'll be driving a Cavalier for the next two weeks.

I ate at Outback with Lisa, Al, and Josh. I did some grocery shopping. I bought some pens. None of this makes any sense to anyone, I'm sure, except for me, and that's cool. I'm on the wireless network from my housing for the two weeks, and I'm talking to some friends. Y'know, life goes on.

I haven't checked email in a few days - today being the first - and so it's interesting to see that you can get 397 spams in three days. NetNewsWire also tells me that about 800 entries have been posted, and I'm going to very quickly skim through those. I think I'll do that now.

Tomorrow: dinner with Jason. I'll remember that.

May 2003 Zeitgeist

Every month (since February) I post my site's referral search terms (not what people search for on my site). It's an interesting peek that illustrates "how people are finding me." Here's May's…


We slept in. My date/companion/friend and I had nothing to do until 11:30, right? The wedding was over, and all we had to do was get to the airport by 1:59 or so. We slept in. It was enjoyable - and relaxing - and we slept in.

What we didn't plan on was the hypoglycemia incident. It was very disturbing to see someone you care about so much in so much pain and discomfort and not be able to do much about it. I did what I could, the entire time feeling wholly inadequate, but she eventually got through it. She's a tough girl. Still, if I could have taken all of her pain away, I would have.

QotD: Beans

Question: What is your favorite bean?

My Answer: I'm tempted to say "Bean town" but that might be cheating. Green beans are okay. Beanies would be cheating too, huh? In the end, I'm going to go with "Mr. Bean," as in the Rowan Atkinson character. Yep, Mr. Bean is my favorite Bean by far. Andy Bean was in second place.

The Wedding

My sister's now married. My kid sister is married. She's too young, isn't she? I'm barely at the point in my life where I could see getting married, and she's over three years younger. How is she old enough? When you find "The One" I guess you're just ready, right? Well, congrats. But in my defense, my companion/friend/date also pointed out that Brad looks younger than her brother. Her brother is 20 and looks like he's 12, so that's saying something. Brad is 23, I think… My sister will be 22 in July. They're off to the Riviera soon (tomorrow).

QotD: Sliced Bread

Question: What's the best invention since sliced bread?

My Answer: I was tempted to say the Wonder Bra™ as a joke, and I guess I just did, but I doubt most people would actually take it as a joke. In short, I don't know that I've got a real answer. The telephone, perhaps, may have provided the most value. It's universal, and it's now wireless and very small. So I'll go with "the telephone is the best invention since sliced bread."
