(we don’t know for sure…)” “Yes… thank you, please go on to the next story.” “But did you know we’re going… read more

I’ve already told you that I’m loving my recently purchased BlackBerry 8830, but now I love it even more! This week Google launched a fuller integration between current BlackBerrys and their apps.  You just need to point your mobile browser to to download everything.  Perhaps a few of these items were available before and… read more

I’m taking part in the Group Writing Project over at Daily Blog Tips, and I’m going to publicly state my blogging goals for 2008. Some of you may remember a similar project awhile back when I did a post about 3 Ways To Get Me To Not Visit Your Blog Again. This feels a bit… read more

High School Musical 2 Dolls

No, this isn’t my typical entry, but I had to share my thoughts on this. As I’ve been cruising Wal-Mart as of late (usually at 1 AM or so as I like to avoid interactions with customers there as much as possible… part of small town living), I’ve spent a lot of time in the… read more

New WordPress Plugins

Well, new to me at least. These are in addition to the ones I posted about before. I discovered these by a post on Daily Blog Tips linking to a post about 50 must have plugins on Admin Drop Down Menu – Finally, the admin menus as drop downs! Instead of clicking on “Manage”… read more

So, Merriam-Webster conducted a poll of what their visitors thought the word of the year was. w00t… w-zero-zero-t This isn’t a word people, it’s a sound.  It’s like the dictionary adding “d’oh” from The Simpsons, it annoys me as it is not a real word.  Sounds should not be in the dictionary, I’m sorry, but… read more


I tried out Twitter earlier in the year, and I just didn’t really take to it for some reason. The idea of going over to a website to post 140 characters about what I was doing just didn’t strike me as interesting, or fun. So, the other day when Mashable was covering the new $5.4… read more

You’ve always got this parrot on your shoulder, ruining your clothes… you throats all sore from saying “arrrrrrrrr” all the time… and this peg leg is MURDER on my hip! You see, the RIAA, is up to their shenanigans… read more
