A secret message from my tongue!

There have been so many things I've wanted to blog about for the past few weeks and by the time I actually get some time to sit down and do it either I just don't feel like it or I've completely forgotten what I wanted to say. I'm good at forgetting things these days, and I'm also good at not feeling like doing them. I'm not sure if it's depression or a mid-life crisis but something is off-balance. Even still, there have been people sticking by me and the projects I manage. I don't know if that because of me, or about what I've been able to put in place, or if one has some effect on the other.

We released Camino 1.1a1 last week with little fanfare. While it really is just an alpha, it's another major milestone for us in the wake of Ff2 (which, btw, got even worse on the Mac). We added spellchecking, RSS detection, improved popup blocking (including the ability to show the blocked popup!), and many many other improvements. I've been running it and haven't had a single crash or major issue, which is pretty good for an alpha. The team has been doing great work, they deserve quite a bit of thanks and credit for stepping up where I've been lax. Stop by #camino and let them know.

What would a blog post be w/out a TV update? What's hot these days? I Pity The Fool, the Mr T reality show (that's right), left Amo and I on the floor laughing and teary. He's just so awesome, he should be on every channel. How I Met Your Mother continues to impress. I feel like they're writing it just for me. The New Adventures Of Old Christine has really stepped it up a notch this season and is an impressive display of writing, comedy, and delivery. Studio60 keeps rolling and is a great show, I still wish I hadn't seen it before. I'm still sucked into Grey's Anatomy, for reasons I'm unable to comprehend. I shouldn't know who McDreamy and McSteamy are, but I do.

Sorry Notre Dame, I've got one word for you. Overrated.

I'm still waiting on the right moments to write my Who concert blog post, am eagerly awaiting their new album, and voyeuristically enjoying Pete's blog. I'm sure when I do finally get around to blogging about it you'll scoff at my fanboy drooling and devotion, but you know I don't really care. It's so much a part of who I am that you can't have me without it.

Enjoying my new car (yes, it's still new, it only has 3k miles on it) even more now that I can turn off the A/C fulltime. This is my first car with seat-warmers and I can't imagine how I ever lived without them. Heaven. The driving is a thrill too. I bought new winter times and rims (sport tires don't do so well when the temp is below 40F or in the snow, and by "don't do so well" i mean turn into skis). Haven't put them on yet so they're stacked up in my garage looking formidable.

It continues to dishearten me when I see people bitch about Mac Ff2. If I could only make them see, but they always have a reason to not see. I guess we'll always be 1% of 5%, but at least as people buy more and more macs, that number continues to increase.

Maybe it's just that time of year again.
