Okay, this has got to be one of the most retarded things I’ve read in a while
Digital TV Switch Could Be Delayed By Vote
This has been televised, advertised, and propogated to every corner of the country for YEARS now, and all of a sudden they say “Oh, we have to delay this AGAIN – until June” now.
Excuse me, but why on God’s green earth FOR? If people are not ready now, they won’t be then, and they’ll still bitch about it. People need to realize that we need to move forward, and not stay back in the stone age! Digital is here, and it’s here NOW. If they pass this measure, I’ll really be gobsmacked.
If you can’t scrape together $40 for a converter, then why are you watching TV and not working? It’s really not that much money, and I’ll bet even the homeless shelters are prepared for February…..why aren’t you?
Sheebus this is just……wow….nuts.
I got in some really cute comfy boots from eBay last weekend, and they are so much fun – especially when paired with some nice wide-leg jeans. I can see why the ladies love styles like this so much! I think this is going to be my dailywear pair for a while now. Yes, I’m a clotheshorse – so there. 😉
I’m also a Crackberry addict now, and I found out why people get to be that way – they are developed like an onion – there are layers of menus and hidden trinkets, it’s sort of like a treasure hunt to locate everything, yet it’s not FRUSTRATING to find it. Most of the time, you do a little research, and the answer is right there. So it’s not like it’s impossible to find what I need – I can find it eventually. Oh, I did find a nice cobalt blue case for it too, so that’s just that much better.
Now to find a pink one next!
I think this has got to be one of the cutest coin banks ever done. KAWAIIIII!
I was reading the news the other day, and I saw something that gave me a real WTF moment.
I grew up in Billings (yes, shock I know), and I’ve grown up with Billings being called “The Magic City”. It has a sort of ring to it, sort of mystical in a way, as we have magically grown over the years, and now they have changed it. They spent a great deal of time, effort, and money to come up with this bold new concept that will supposedly revitalize our city and make it truly grand in this state – not that there is much else around right here.
So what did they come up with? What was the result of this grand plan? Oh you’ll love this one.
Billings: Montana’s Trailhead
TRAILHEAD???? Where in peanut-butter-on-toast left field did THAT one come out of? That just blew my mind that it took EFFORT to come up with that – and money? TAXPAYER money? That has got to be the laziest, most outdated name you could possibly come up with for this town! If you want to brand this place as THE backwater stop in the country that will never catch up to anywhere else, be my guest, but I thought that was the single most inappropriate title you could ever give this place!
No wonder everyone else in the country still thinks we use horses and buggies, and the sheriff patrols on horseback – we give everything nothing but OLD MOLD WEST NAMES!!! Big Sky – yeah – it’s big. Magic City – yeah, tht was good too, but TRAILHEAD? I want my taxpayer bucks back from that meeting. I can’t believe that our city council would cook up something this half-assed in a long time.
*sigh*…guess I’d better put the horse in the stable and go huntin’ coyote. It gets awful cold up here where we only have wood heat and insulation hasn’t been invented yet.
I think I need a stiff drink now…….
I was about in tears this morning with happiness watching Barack Obama say his inauguration speech – it was such a momumental moment to witness! He said a lot of very powerful statements in his address, and I really hope he delivers on what he promises. He has been put in a very high pedestal, and now it’s up to him to make good on what he said he would do. The whole world is watching – and waiting.
The end of an error has come, and the world can breathe a HUGE sigh of relief now.
This is funny……it’s one thing to hear straight people think you’re gay because of how you live, but when you hear gay people wondering if you’re gay as well, then it’s a two-fold win – you’ve confused EVERYONE!
For the record, I am a str8 person, even though from time to time I did wonder, and there were those earlier in my life that under different circumstances, I might have actually considered, but I’m just happy being me, and enjoying defying convention – I don’t fit into any one “mold”, and usually shatter any that people try and pigeon-hole me into. It’s like when people asked Pete Burns of Dead of Alive after he did all that cosmetic surgery – he just said that he is himself, and that’s it.
Why do we even NEED convention in the first place? What purpose does it serve other than being a convenient label for someone to slap on another person? I guess it’s easier to stick a label on rather than accept the fact that people are different, and we should all be free to explore who we are and what we are without fear of repercussion – even though we know that’s not gonna happen anytime soon, right? I think it’s more politics than anything else, because what easier way to deny basic human rights to a group of people you don’t like than to give them a label or a convention to be known by!
Can’t we just be free to be ourselves – or is that more of a pipe dream these days in the “land of the free”? Maybe it should be “Land of the free as long as you abide by this five-mile long list of conditions”.
Well, today I hit 21 – for the 20th time! I’m getting good at it!
