Saturday afternoon randomness

So, it’s May 1, 2010 already. I have no developed thought for this blog post, so I’m just going to take part in some Saturday afternoon randomness.

  • I really can’t believe that the first four months of the year are already gone. I swear it was just New Years Day a couple of weeks ago.
  • While there were individual days in April that were very, very good, on the whole I’d have to say that in general it was a truly craptacular month. I suggest that in order to assure that may is a better month that we begin offering sacrifices. Poodles seem to be an acceptable sacrifice.
  • I’ve not played any on-line games since I closed my WOrld of Warcraft account in January. I’ve used the time I would have spent playing in productive ways, but I have to say that the last week or so I’ve been really craving a good game. I’ve found myself looking at both the WOW forums and the Eve Online Forums again. This is NOT a good thing. I know myself to well; If I start gaming again I’ll end up wasting way, way to much time. I’ve resisted so far, but DAMN I’ve been thinking about it a lot.
  • I’ve been waiting for feedback on a project.
  • I’ve got to get my vehicle fixed, or get a different one. Not having reliable transportation is really beginning to affect my calm.
  • Caedmon’s knighting was seriously overdue.
  • I’m thinking of starting a betting pool on who will be elevated next in the three circles.
  • I was surprised there are not more people taking part in the next Crown List. Based on the 13 people that are actually taking part, it should be an interesting list.
  • May is going to be a very busy month.
  • I think Fringe and Justified are the two most entertaining shows currently on Television. I recommend them to anyone that is looking for entertainment. Fringe is in it’s second season, but the first four episodes of Justified are currently available on
  • Castle comes in a close third.
  • You can never listen to Harry Chapin, Jim Crocce, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, or Johnny Cash enough.
  • Finally saw Avatar. The effects were nice; it is a pretty movie, but the story was something I’d seen several times before.
  • Why in the name of all that’s holy would anyone want to remake “Nightmare on Elm Street”? It was a great movie, and didn’t need to be remade.
  • Eating a meal from Taco Bell for the first meal of the day is most certainly NOT a good idea.
  • Come to think of it, neither is eating a meal from Taco Bell as the last meal of the day.
  • I miss
  • I was recently friended on Facebook by someone I’d literally not heard from in over 20 years. It was a very, very pleasant surprise.
  • Volcano’s, earthquakes, torrential rains; I think the Earth Mother is pissed and fighting back.
  • Oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico; I think the price of shrimp is going up again.

In the words of one my favorite Loony Tunes characters, “That’s all folks”….
