I was replying to Scott's post in Decidedly Undecided, and I started thinking it's nice to be posting again. Even if people were to find my opinions funny or misguided or flat out wrong, if the thought is out there, people can see it, and if I have an error in my thinking, maybe they can help me see things in a different light. I like that.

Then I thought that I wonder if Scott is slightly miffed that I seem to not be able to be around on Funeratic very often to converse and interact with my friends, but when new people I barely know show interest in Funeratic while looking me up on the web, I will come back and post for their benefit. Am I a terrible friend. (Lack of question mark intentional)

I think I need to hit the road and head home, but traffic is crazy.

I think if bonus posts had songs of the day, the song for this post would be something by They Might Be Giants. Probably "Bangs". I do like "Bangs".

Well, I gotta hit the oooooooooooooooold dusty trail. But remember the words of that philosopher mathematician Blaise Pascal "I have made this letter longer than usual because I lack the time to make it shorter."

I am never miffed, slightly or otherwise, when people aren't around any more. People are busy and they have lives. If there's something specific that's making them want to leave the site that I could fix, like a frustrating game rule or a bad piece of UI functionality or something, then I suppose I'd be miffed if they didn't tell me so that I could fix it for them instead of losing them. But regardless, you're back now and I'm always happy when someone comes back, or joins in the first place. :-)

14-VIII-2006 or "A bombardment?" "An OBSCENE one!!"

Random quote from a movie I watched a few years back called "Il Monstro", which is "The Monster" in Italian. It had that one Italian actor who has been doing most of the comedic roles lately (I think his name is Roberto Begnini, or something close to). It's pretty funny, I think. Go »

6-IX-2007 or Not again! :(

I really really really hate birthdays! Just a reminder that you've been around another year, and that your time is shorter by 365 days (or so). :( I'm cranky like that. Go »


Someone on Facebook just quoted Caddyshack, and the quote included the name Mitch Cumstein. THE LEGEND OF MITCHELL CUMSTEIN IS REAL!!!!!!! Go »

10-VIII-2007 or An Unhappy Call (No Reply)

Well, I'm on my way to kickball, when my mother calls me. She never calls me, so I know right away this is going to be bad. Apparently, the night before, my dad was driving down the road, towing the dunk tank (yes, my dad was towing around a county fair style dunk tank..it's 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 »
