Freaking CRAP!

Do you ever get that sinking feeling in the pit of your stomach when you've written something great only to realize that you've somehow lost it in the netherworld of the internets? I wrote an awesome post this weekend, saved as a draft to post when I got back from Houston (which, BTW, was INCREDIBLY hot and humid... me, being used to So Cal weather now, had completely forgotten how it feels to melt into a puddle of human goo on the pavement). And now the most awesome-est post ever is missing. Yes, missing. Stupid Blogger got hungry and ate it I guess. It just couldn't handle that much awesome-ness, methinks.

So, I'm in kind of a bad mood, being exhausted from travel and work and pissed about losing the most bitchin-est post of my life (actually, it wasn't that great - I don't think I'm capable of true great-ness, though I will settle for mediocrity on a grand scale). Now I don't know what to write about. I just recently read Cate's list of 100 things over on her blog, and I am inspired to try that someday, if anyone's interested, but not today. I just don't have the time nor the energy to delve into an assignment that complicated right now. I will think on it, compile my list and determine if it is interesting enough to post within the next few days/weeks.

Here's just some silly links in no particular order and with no witty remarks. My brain hurts too much to even try to bring on Teh Witty:

Daily Dancer - the blog of a man who dances... daily. Trying too hard to win internet geek fame like the Star Wars Kid? Maybe. But still fun.

Ouch. This is the part of the story that sucks. No one who has been beaten that badly needs that kind of shit said about him. Oooohhhhh - he got a lap dance while at the club - what a bad boy. So was he lying? Who knows. All I know is that people can be really mean - whether it's actually beating someone all the way to the borderline between life and death, or writing mean comments about how he deserved it, or getting lap dances and lying to cover it up - it's a depressing story.

The Picture of Everything. Bad ASS. And say it with me, "Someone has way to much time on their hands." What would the world be like if these people didn't exist?? Very boring to say the least.

This is what I wish I had time to do now and then:

Can I just say one thing before heading off to sleep? I AM SO INCREDIBLY SICK OF MICHAEL JACKSON. I wish the news would talk about something else. I wish they would talk about stem cell research and how our country is falling behind. Or about the ridiculous-ness that is Real ID. Or millions of other more important issues. Good thing I get my news from internet sources. But what about those people who don't - those people that only rely on television news for their information? It's scary to realize how much I truly did not understand about the world around me during my time as part of the ignorant masses - and I don't use "ignorant" as a synonym for "stupid", but as a way to describe the tunnel vision that so many people adopt by just swallowing whatever the television tells them, without seaking out alternate opinions. It amazes me how some of the most brilliant people in the world can be so stubbornly ignorant.

I'm in a weird mood, better get off of this thing before I say something I regret...

P.S. A friend just IMed me this as we speak. DAMN. There's some really cool shit out there....

That REAL ID thing is freaky to say the least. I pray they never do anything like that. But I wouldn't put it past the government to do something that they believe to be "in our best interests." Heck, the two-party system is supposed to be "in our best interests" but I rarely think that is the truth.

If you actually have the patience to pull off one of those 100 point lists, go for it. I'll read it. I read Cate's and there's no way in hell I will ever do that. I'm afraid of what I would actually say.

Hey, great picture, but how did you get the cat to sit still for that?

I must meekly admit that the picture is not one of my own. None of the pictures I post are my own. Most of them are just things that I've come across in my travels around the web. They are pics that are generally consumable and no one really knows who actually took them in the first place.

Although, that being said, I could, if I were at all creative, take pictures of my cat like that. He's so fat that once you put him in place, he doesn't move unless he absolutely must. Or if there's food in the vicinity. He's a perfect model/movie cat!

(1) Welcome back
(2) Sorry to hear about the human goo effect. (says the goo-puddle from FL)
(3) Sorry^2 about the disappeared post. I *hate* when that happens.

the end

ah, The Carol returns. Bienvenue. Anyway, yes we are falling behind, and I'm sorry you're pissed off. Try going for a run. Just go until you can't anymore. That's what I do when I'm upset, but I will talk to you once the rage subsides.

CD, our cats must have been separated at birth. I think mine has even been having problems cleaning himself lately.

Can't . . . quite . . . bend . . . like I . . . used to . . .
