It may appear that I’ve wandered off somewhere, and I am not sure if I haven’t. I’ve not written anything here in a while and still haven’t decided to put anything substantive down in words, but, for those who still seem to care about what is written on this corner of the ‘net, I say, “Hello!” Watch the header for a possible email address change, BTW. I’m getting the impression that spammers are spoofing my email address and its getting blacklisted on some email servers. No, that wasn’t me trying to sell you fake Rolex watches.

Damn! Its -34°C outside right now. If the wind blows, it feels like -42°C. I thought that was a temperature reserved for places like Winnipeg. I don’t like this, especially since our place is heated with electricity and the power flickered about an hour ago.
What is up with the buzz phrase, “Economic Downturn“? Does it seem less like a recession or depression if we call it some “PC” phrase? My pockets are still empty. A spade is a spade. Call it that!
Jeez! On the news, I just heard that bullshit phrase 4 more times while typing this (extremely short) post. WTF!!!
As a start to the new year online, I decided to try the Firefox 3.1 beta 2 and see if the “awesome bar” piece of crap “improvement” on a functional address bar would be faster. So far so good. When I begin to type something, it doesn’t hang for ten seconds after the third letter. That’s a good sign.
What is it with you??? You know who you are! Yes, you, the driver two cars ahead that insists on driving fast enough to keep us from passing you when on a straight, car-less stretch? Yes, you, who always slows down when cars come from the other direction?
What is up with that? Are you scared of them? If so, stop driving your car! Are you afraid that you’re speeding and that you’ll get caught by the police for doing so? Stop speeding, then! Just stick with a speed so that we behind you can stop being distracted by your terrible and downright scary driving!
Yes, you are scary to be behind. Its because we don’t know when you’re just going to lock your brakes right up and cause a ten car pileup. I mean, really, can you just try to pick a speed and stick with it, regardless of whether someone’s coming the other way???? Please? You scare me.
Wow, its climbing up there in temperature. Yesterday was so muggy and warm that I didn’t think that I was going to see it cool down in oru apartment. Today’s forecast is a humid 30°C and it seems that it might be there.
Unfortunately, the air conditioning in our building here at work seems to have an inverse relationship with the outside temperature. The hotter it gets outside, the colder it gets in here. I’ve just put on my sweater to stave off the shivers for the rest of the day. Anybody else in this situation where they have to take their jacket or sweater to work when it blazing hot outside?
So, you have been granted Power of Attorney over someone’s affairs or named as Executor of an Estate. Why is it that you think that everybody that you call on the phone will magically know this? Why do you get all excited and in a huff when its pointed out that you will have to send that document to the company that you’re trying to do stuff with? I mean, really! What makes you think that any company would release private information to you without proof that they could do so?
Relax! Don’t let anyone pee in your corn fklakes any more. Take a moment and give your head a shake. When you’re politely provided with a reasonable solution for your unreasonable demand, just take the advise and DO IT. Your stomach will thank you and the antacid companies can relax their production lines a bit.
We know that its likely an emotional time for you. That is why you’ll always be provided a solution to your problem. Sorry for your troubles, but remember…we’;ll protect your information just as vigilantly.
