Blog-Bud Andy has taken up v-logging with his new fanboi phone that does photos, videos, finds you dates, changes the baby, and fixes dinner, among other thangs. He's done two of those thangs now and he's pretty good at it. I tried that back when the MinoHD was new, once. I sucked.
Andy also mentioned in his v-log that he'd been off for three whole days and was kinda-sorta beside himself. I've been off for 3,327 days now (not counting today) and am just as happy as the proverbial pig in... umm... stuff. I'm living proof (well, "living" is loosely defined) that being easily amused is one o' life's most under-rated blessings. (And how did I get that exact day count, you might ask? By going to this handy lil web site. I LOVES me some technology!)
Remember a couple o' few days ago when I posted about the Beloved Wings blowing out those Feral Dogs at The Joe? Well, they did the same thang last evening to the hot Winnipeg Jets, who came into The Joe last night on a roll, having won sumthin' like seven of their last ten. Alas (for Winnipeg's fans), those same Jets proceeded to flame out, losing to the Wings by a score of 7-1. The Jets DID manage to score the first goal (34 seconds into the first period) but it was all downhill for them from there. Good stuff, Maynard.
Shocked! That would be me when I slide off the bar stool and forget to ground myself before doin' so. The seats of my spiffy bar stools are covered in some sorta suede-like fabric that is a potential solution to America's energy crisis, provided one could somehow harness the megawatts of static electricity generated by the simple act of getting up. I swear I've seen blue arcs emanate from my fingertips once or twice. This phenomenon is exacerbated by the current negative ten percent relative humidity inside El Casa Inmóvil de Pennington. The low or nonexistent indoor humidity is yet another reason to hate winter. Which I DO.
And it's still cold outside, although there's a warm-up coming by mid-week if the good folks at the NWS in ABQ are correct.
We might even be able to pull off an outdoor Happy Hour! Let us pray...
I believe I mentioned I was considering buying a new peesee rather than getting the current desktop repaired. Well last Tuesday I did just that. I did my patriotic duty to stimulate the economy... and I also gave Hewlett-Packard (a fine, outstanding AMERICAN computer company who sells stuff assembled in China or Taiwan, outta parts made only-gawd-knows-where) my bid'niz, in the hopes they'll be able to keep my pittance of a retirement check coming along each and every month. Well, that and the fact that HP gives me an employee discount on their stuff, and every lil bit helps, yanno? OTOH, I'm not too pleased with how long it's gonna take the box to get here. I ordered the thang on 12/06 and HP tells me the machine will ship on or about 12/19, with a five to seven day delivery date to follow. Doesn't that seem excessive? But then again... Taiwan is a long ways away from New Mexico.
