I just got my license plate renewal bill in the mail. I'm supposed to send my check to 309 West South Street.

I wonder if that's anywhere near East North Street....

So what do I do with 5 million neopoints now?

Neopets, one of my all-time top time-wasting places, has re-vamped their entire site and I hate it! I could get used to the new look, but now I have to scroll back and forth as well as down to view the pages, and that's annoying the heck out of me. Oh, and I can't find anything, either, since they moved and changed all the links and shortcuts.

I'm an old fussbudget, and I hate change!

I have issues....

My optical mouse seems to be clicking randomly (and double-clicking on occasion as well) and ads and cookie-bombardments keep locking up my browser when I'm web-surfing.

Sigh. I think the poltergeist followed me home....

I have a question, though...since Great Bristish Pounds Sterling sounds like a breed of dog, how big of a kennel run will I need for 400,000 of them?

(The cool, authentic-looking MSN logos, and the photo of Dr. Gerri, were too much trouble to copy, save and upload).

P.S. I'm trusting everybody not to steal my claim numbers...

Free Ice Cream!

The Great and Powerful Pixy Misa, as part of his Munuvian World Domination Plan, is temporarily offering free (yep, FREE!) blogs to suitable victims beta volunteers. Each blog comes with "at least 1GB of disk space and 10GB of monthly bandwidth, for as long as the user wants to keep it."

Once all the sacrificial beta-spots are filled, ordinary folks will be forced to actually PAY for their new mee.nu blogs.

It just so happens that I have come into possession of 5 (five!) virtual beta keys, each one of which will unlock the magical world of blogging to the lucky few.

Since I expect there will be a stampede to hop onboard the next Big Thing, I will email a key and unintelligible, rudimentary instructions to the first five requesters who can correctly tell me the name of my cat (and provide a valid email address)...

...or just beg. Begging is good.

I finished the newest Harry Dresden (White Night) and stumbled onto Simon R. Green's Nightside books, which remind me a little of Glen Cook's Garrett series.
....Now I want a new Discworld*...

*Thud! is one of my favorites...

Lame Post #537

Happy Easter! It's a particularly happy one, because it's the last day of Spring Break, and tomorrow we go back to "normal" hours--until summer, anyway. Yay!

Here's a poser for you--how can there be 102 people watching a movie, none of whom can be bothered to come out to the lobby and mention that the movie popped out of frame...until after the credits roll? It wasn't even subtle! When I got up to the projection booth, there was a black line across the middle of the screen, and the top of the frame was in the bottom half, and the bottom was in the top half. Yet, not one person came out to mention that there was something wrong with the film. I don't get it. Were we supposed to know there was a problem by the disturbance in the Force?

Sometimes I wonder, I really do...

April Showers Thunderstorms

Just posting to let my loyal reader (Hi Harvey!) know I'm still alive, and it's Spring Break, so I'm working 12-hour days and don't have anything interesting to blog about anyway, except the Supreme Court is stupid--but that's not news...
