Megnut

This monsieur is confused. He thinks megnut is a blog from France. Mais non! I sent an email correcting his French assumption.

Sunny, warm, palm trees in the breeze, sangria in my tummy, ah...California!

My lackluster posts of late

My lackluster posts of late have made me unBloatable. Boo hoo.

Argh. Again. I had some

Argh. Again. I had some other post in here at some point today, but in my chaos I must have just forgotten to post it. Oh well, I don't remember what it was anyway. So all I can say now is argh. Oh, and shit, I think my dinner is burning!

Icky blah blah yuck gross

Icky blah blah yuck gross again rain. Pffffffhhhh hmph.

So usually I go to

So usually I go to the haircutter in the morning, and they always offer me water or tea or coffee. Well tonight I went at 6 p.m. and it turns out that if you go at night, they offer you wine! You know what time my haircuts will be from now on!

Last night I was watching

Last night I was watching tv and I saw an ad for a Hyundai SUV (I think it was Hyundai), anyway, the SUV was crowd surfing at a rock concert (honestly) and then there was this disclaimer that said something like, "Car for use on open road only. Do not drive on people." Can you imagine the meeting where that decision was made?

Marketing Department, upon reviewing the ad:
Cyndi: "I really like the message, the car is one with the people."
Bob: "I'm on the same page as Cyndi here regarding the message, but I've got some issues. What if people think they can drive this car on people?"
Jeffrey: "Hmmm...interesting point, Bob. Let's talk to Robert in Legal about this one."
Robert (from Legal): "Way to be on the ball with this one, team. The Company could lose big with a lawysuit over this. Let's put a disclaimer in the ad (in very small print) that says, 'Do not drive on people.' That'll dissuade them."
Cyndi: "I like that idea, Robert. That works for me."
Jeffrey: "Me too! Good going team, we've averted disaster on this one!"

Whoa, it's been like three

Whoa, it's been like three days since I read any weblogs, and while I want to catch up, I just feel beat and wasted and too damn tired to click on anything. How pathetic is that?

I'm really busy and in

I'm really busy and in a pissy mood, so I figure I won't bore you with my distracted, and bitchy, observations for the time being. Should be all over by tomorrow, or I'll be moving away to France, in which case I most likely won't update megnut because I'll have some hot new French boyfriend to hang out with instead.

Matt made a version of

Matt made a version of the karate film, because he seems to know movie editing better than I, that's less than 500 kb. Thanks Matt!

I bet you didn't know

I bet you didn't know that I knew karate! [18 mb .avi and all worth it!]

Some things are so strange.

Some things are so strange. I like to read the Boston Globe every once and awhile to keep abrest of what's happening back "home" and for some reason this morning I was drawn to the obituaries, where I discovered that a high school friend's father had passed away, and a high school teacher. How sad and how strange.

What's the deal with the

What's the deal with the horoscopes at Yahoo! these days? Is it me or are they written for entrepreneurs? Every day there's some reference to venture capital, funding, work success, etc. I mean, it makes for fun reading for me, but are they really helpful (as if any horoscope is helpful, ha!) for housewives in Iowa?

I'm 38% bitch. How bitchy

I'm 38% bitch. How bitchy are you? I don't know why I like these tests, but I do. What's funny is that one of the questions asks "How many people have you broken up with?" which got me thinking about old relationships where my role was the dumper. Back in college I dumped this guy (gosh that word is so harsh), let me restate, I ended things with someone I'd been seeing for a little over a month, and he STOLE my bicycle. Isn't that strange? Every time I've been dumped, I've felt sad, but I've never felt the urge to steal someone's bike. Have you? Is that a common reaction, the urge to steal an ex's belongings? I wish I had comments implemented here, I'd like to hear about your strange breakup stories. You can always email me.

Eleven seconds has a links

Eleven seconds has a links page that lists some weblogs, including meganut. I wonder if it's a mistake and is supposed to be megnut instead? Because meganut is not a weblog, it's, you guessed it, a porn site! Somehow porn is swirling in the air around me, I don't get it. [thanks Heather]

Texas: we're #1 in executions!

Texas: we're #1 in executions! Whether she did it seems less important right now than asking: did she receive a fair trial? Was represented by an adequate, and competent, defense? And was evidence of her history of domestic abuse known to the jury? If the answer to a single one of these questions is not an unconditional yes, how can she be executed? And how can anyone involved in this case sleep at night with a clear conscience?

Someday I'd like to fall in love again.

I've been forgetting all about blogging for a while.

Woo hoo! Our first BIG

Woo hoo! Our first BIG press mention (I mean being Modesto Bee's Site of the Week was big, but not this big): Wired News talks about weblogs and mentions Blogger! Things are getting good now.
