Random TV Commercial Pondering


We all know the purpose it serves. 

So why in the heck do the commercials end with the supposedly naked couple in two SEPARATE bathtubs? How's that going to work? I'm not saying get graphic, but come on now... TWO bathtubs?

If the powers that be are so worried about viewers' sensibilities and want to be coy, end with the dressed couple holding hands. Everyone would get the point. IMHO, the bathtub shtick is not coy, just plain dumb.

That is all. I promise not to bitch about the creepy Quiznos commercial with the singing kittens wearing clothes. You know you think they are scary too. Admit it.

I have nothing to say for myself this morning, so I'll post a quote instead.

Been busy, busy, busy!

So  much to say, but so little of it I should say.

Instead, I leave you with this:

Some people need to learn karma is always going to be the bigger bitch... fun to watch them learn.

That is all. :)

Proposition 8 Drama

Ha. Proposition 8 got squashed for the time being. I wonder if this hurtful, mean-spirited law will be allowed to die. Still not sure what bringing Prop 8 to life in the first place accomplished. More hate, anger, fear, and hurt? That's all most laws of exclusion tend to do.

Yes, this debate does not affect me personally. Honestly, how does allowing same sex marriages affect my right to a heterosexual marriage? How does it 'devalue' it? I can't seem to wrap my head around that....

I think you can tell what side of this drama I am on. My rule of thumb for which side I am on with these type of issues is 'Live and let live.' As long as someone else's choices are not affecting/harming me or anyone else, it's not my call. I can have my opposing opinion until the cows come home, but I can't tell other people how to live their lives. The arrogance of 'knowing' what is best for other people's lives is what gets the human race into trouble time and time again.

My question is why do we all have to get all bent out of shape over stuff that isn't any of our business? Why can't we all mind our own business? I find life is a lot more pleasant when I mind my own beeswax. Everyone should try it...

Seriously? If I was made dictator of the world, and imposed my personal viewpoints and preferences on everyone, I would be tempted to make lots laws of exclusion.... For starters I would start with a 'you're too narrow-minded and bigoted to reproduce law...' Probably follow that up with 'You're too much of a fanatic to reproduce law...' Maybe a 'No way in hell you are allowed to wear spandex law...' You get the picture.

Way Overdue Update


Apparently I am the world's worst at keeping up with the blogging. I keep forgetting I even have a blog. Yeah, seriously.

Reason I remember I have one? Well, I needed somewhere to kvetch about how badly AutoCAD has been treating me today. The blasted program shut it self down before I could hit save 3 times. That's not counting the times it crapped out on me when I did get a chance to hit save.

I have found that my health issues are probably not related to that Parvovirus B19 after all. The jury is still out on what it really is. Do you know how long you have to wait to see specialists? I wonder if people don't die just from the waiting to get an appointment...

Later, if I remember...

Excuses, Excuses....

So my latest excuse for not keeping up with this blog thing? Been under the weather a wee bit. The evidence (symptoms) strongly suggest that Parvovirus B19 is the culprit. Still have to get the blood test to prove it.

One good thing is that I don't have any of the risk factors that could make this a serious illness. Granted, feeling like I have arthritis in all my joints is not my idea of a good time, but it will eventually go away. It is very painful, uncomfortable, and darned inconvenient, but I don't feel I can really complain too much.

I look at it this way: it could have been something permanent. Now, that would really bite.

I Won The Lottery! Wait...It Was Just A Dream. Sorry.

Just this moment, I remembered I have a blog and my tepid promise to myself to actually use it.

Unfortunately, I really have nothing to say for myself. Same old, same old... still cold/snowy/rainy here and I still haven't won the lottery or come across any other source of  obscene amounts of money.

Pretty boring, huh? Hence the title - figured I'd give this post something interesting.

I will attempt find a more exciting life before my next post. Does anyone know where I can pick one up?

Newton's 1st Law

"A body persists in a state of uniform motion or of rest unless acted upon by an external force."

Me = body at rest
Gumption aka Willpower = external force

My gumption seems to have gone on a walkabout. If seen, please send it back to me. I got absolutely nothing done today! Nada! Zip! Zilch!

Today, that has been very true for this particular body. I don't know if it's the warm bed/ cold world scenario or simply having an off day. Went to bed last night thinking of all the things I planned to do today.

Let's see how long I actually keep this up.

So. I have decided to revive my blogger account... Maybe. I think....

Real reason I am here is to set up a blog for friend of mine. Maybe he'll blog more consistently than me? Not that it will take much to be a more consistent blogger than me.

Later guys!
