Forty two

My UPS goes chirp. Randomly, but a lot. When I put a towel over it, it stops. What's with that? I've put in for a new battery, but until then, I guess I'll live with the towel. Boy it's annoying. Chirp. Chirp. Chirp. Where's that towel?

Baaa baaa

Ok, well, it's done. I have one of those new little phones some people are talking about. The things it does well, it does incredibly fucking well. So well I have to keep changing my boxers. The keyboard rocks. Hard keys are for babies. There are some huge oversights, though, and those keep me banging my head against the wall.

Like when I get a pix message I get a username and password for a website that requires Flash, which doesn't work on said phone.

When I miss a call, I wouldn't know unless I later wake the phone up and look. Have I missed a call? How about now? How about now? How about now? How about now?

"Oh, just m0d it to get that feature!!! D0n't you read the haX0r sites!?". Fuck you. Really.

8Gb? Really? Creating a mini playlist for my music is so 2003. But at least I can get my TopGear on it. Maybe open source isn't as ass as I once stated.

I just keep telling myself that they're all software updates...well, except the last one.

OMG I'm in heaven with pre-season football. Anything is better than baseball, but my man Barry finally did it, and serious mAD pr0pS to him.

I have three words for everyone looking for something to watch: Ice Road Truckers. 'nuff said. Also, if you haven't caught No Reservations or Kitchen Nightmares, you're missing out. Cooking shows that don't suck. BAM!

How about now? How about now? How about now?

Belmont Banditos!

I got this email from my HOA last week. I'm not making this up.

The most recent incident [of vandalism] occurred this past Saturday morning around 4:30 AM. Houses were egged and several mailboxes were knocked over. Evidence was found in the form of an empty carton of Hillandale Farms organic brown eggs. Due to the expensive nature of organic eggs we do not feel that the eggs were purchased with the intent of throwing them at a home, rather they were taken from someone's kitchen after they were purchased.

Evidence was also obtained by the Sheriff from the last egging incident. The eggs were purchased at a local Harris Teeter and the Sheriff’s office has photos from the check out camera. If you have any information about these incidents or would like to view the photos please contact the management office at [number removed]. Please be aware that throwing eggs at an occupied home is in fact a felony.

There are so many things I can make fun of, I don't even know where to start. It's as if starting somewhere would someone diminish the soda-coming-out-of-your-nose quality of any of the other issues.

Still no iPhone yet, I appear to be one of the few holdouts.
