Cars That Look Stupid (to me)

08/17/2010

I would never get caught driving one of these:

Reminds me of a jellybean (with wheels)

It's the car from Wacky Races

An origami car

Yeah, just remove the cannon

I think the Monty Python foot stepped on this car

YIKES!!!! Way to ruin a BMW

My, How Time Flies

08/15/2010

Can it be? Has it been four months and I’ve done nothing here? No updates. No random thoughts. No random video posted? No nothing! Shame on me.

This was started because I had quite a bit of free time. I was unemployed, you see, and I was beyond frustrated and needed some sort of outlet I guess. By the way, my recommendation: Don’t quit your job if you have nothing lined-up.

Anyway, I managed to secure myself a job (yay!), move to my own place (double yay!) and needless to say my free time was not what it used to be.

Hence, I feel much more settled now and I believe I will have free time to post randomness from time to time. And it’s about time!

I’m Breaking Up With You, Firefox

04/16/2010

It’ s not me, it’s you. I used to love you so much, Firefox. We had some great times together, you and me. It just seems that ever since your last update, my computer keeps crashing. And freezing. And I keep having to reboot. I just can’t take it anymore. Thanks for the memories, you’ll always have a small place in my heart.

As Only a Brit Would Say…

04/10/2010

From Stephen Fry’s “The Ode Less Travelled” (subtitle: Unlocking the Poet Within).

In the Foreword, he writes: “Behind it all, the dread memory of classrooms swollen into resentful silence while the English teacher invites us to ‘respond’ to a poem.”

No American would ever write a sentence like that. I love British writers.

Grazing in the Grass

03/02/2010

This is why I can’t leave the door open for the dog to come and go as she pleases. Now there’s grass inside and it’s everywhere.

Dilemma!

02/24/2010

Texas is going to elect their governor this year. (I’m not going to bother mentioning who the Democrat candidates are – this is Texas after all.) Here are the choices in the Republican primary: Rick Perry (the incumbent) and Kay Bailey Hutchison (TX Senator).

Here’s the dilemma: Dick Cheney has endorsed KBH. Sarah Palin has endorsed Perry. What to do? Who should I vote for?! Oh, wait. I’m not a registered Republican. Never mind. (Whew.)

Willkommen, Bienvenido, Welcome!

First blog post is up. Yes, I am that bored. Yes, I have that much free time. Yes, I think people care about what I have to say. Er, actually. Scratch that last sentence.
