Well, this will be the last time I blog here until 9/18 or so, when I will be back from vacation. Barring a European internet cafe, or some such nonsense. (How does one get the little accent on the e? I feel like a dumdum not having it!) I know you will all miss me terribly, but these things happen form time to time! ;)

I've had it suggested I try to see Legoland, which I am led to understand is an entire miniture village made out of Legos outside of Copenhagen. I'm there!

The "situation" at work made the newspapers! Well, it was in the Gainesville newspapers, anyways! And after I was scared it would be all covered up! I won't put a link to it (that would be kind of tacky, eh?), but anyone who checks out the Gainesville Sun, and looks for references to UF professors and time card scams, would probably find it. It was actually one of the MJ Morning Show "Morons in the News" articles!! Not that many people would know about the MJ Morning Show, which is a radio show around here, but Morons in the News speaks for itself.

I just know that at least one of you will go look! It's a good article! ;) Let your curiosity guide you!

Anyhow, I'm packed, ready to go, and a little excited! It will be interesting to see other countries. I'm especially curious if there will be any kind of hoo haw about the 5th anniversary of 9/11. And I do mean both positive and negative hoo haw. I'll keep you posted!!

I also have to learn how to get pictures in here, in case I take some. Got a new camera from my wife for the trip, so we'll see how badly I can mess it up!! :)

Song of the day for today will be a song I don't know the title of, nor who sings it, but it annoys me on the radio on a daily basis, so I will just put the part of it I know up here, and everyone will scream in pain, like I am right now.

"Don't you wish your girlfriend was hot like me?
Don't you wish your girlfriend was a freak like me?
Don't you? Don't you?"

I might have squished together two verses there, but it hurts either way! :)

I'm sure it'll win 12 grammys, I hate it that much! :(

Well, I'll talk to you all in a few weeks! Seeya!

That song is by the talentless group The Pussycat Dolls. They're almost as bad as Fergie.

Dave Barry can add "Morons in the News" to his list of great names for rock bands.

Enjoy the trip, Aaron!

14-VII-2009 or Oh. Didn't I Mention That??

Ha! I just saw the funniest thing, but I shouldn't make mention of it, since it involves images of me online on Youtube cursing and being a total dick. It's real funny, but of course, if I speak of it, or name the event, then everyone will see me being a weirdo, and they might think that's really how I roll. Go »

20-IX-2006 or Man, those Samoans sure are a surly bunch.

That was the punchline to a Bloom County comic I read many years ago. It always cracks me up...which makes no sense, really. Go »

22-XII-2008 or I am dumb.

Funny story (only it's not)! My wife was running in a 5K race for the inaugural magicjack.com Saint Petersburg Bowl (I love those corporate tie-ins!), Go »

4-VIII-2007 or Short and Sweet

I am working on a Saturday. I am not so amused. :( Anyhow, the song of the day is this annoying song that one of my co-workers has sung non-frickin' stop for the past week and a half. Go »

Things I Learned From the People's Choice Awards 2018

Just looking over the results, and I saw a few things that I wanted to comment/ask about. Feel free to clarify and/or put in your new revelations! :) 1) What the heck is Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments and why am I just hearing about this?? Go »

20-I-2009 or Aaron misses the point?

Hmm... I thought the historic part had already gone past, but apparently, this is an historic day. I didn't know that swearing in was historic. Go »
