Oh well, I tried...

So, I've really kinda screwed the pooch on this NaBloPoMo thing. I haven't quite managed to post every day..or even nearly every day. As luck would have it, I had some computer problems this month, and a few work issues I needed to deal with, and I've been busy working on updates to my starrbrite.com to get that straightened out. It kinda needs an overhaul. Plus I've been spending a lot of time on Gather and with various other stuff..so, needless to say, my blog posting hasn't been what it should be. But, on the up side, I am still averaging more than 1 post every few months now, so that's a good thing. There's really not a whole big bunch else going on around here. I have a few topics I plan to post about soon, when I have time to sit down and do it.. but for now I'm just hanging out. I can't believe this week is Thanksgiving already! this year has just flown by. Things were kinda up in the air as to what we'd be doing for dinner this year, because my sister usually makes dinner and she has to work this year. There was talk of ordering dinner from Winn Dixie or Publix or something, but we just can't wrap our heads around paying 40.00 to 70.00 for a less than 20 pound turkey and 2 sides, some gravy and a few rolls. It's nice to not have to cook, but it's just not worth it. So, we decided that she'll make the turkey, gravy, stuffing, mashed potatoes and sweet potato casserole and me and mom will make everything else. I'm looking forward to it. I've actually got a little bit of holiday spirit already, and this is early for me. Maybe thats because they started putting Christmas decorations up on Halloween day, and at least 1 radio station around here is playing Christmas music 24/7 already..nothing like rushing things a bit.. but, I guess making the holiday season last as long as possible isn't a bad thing. Mmmm.. cant wait for Turkey Day!

What A Doll..

I'm sure by now, most people have heard of Real Dolls. Those life-like, life-sized sex toy dolls that cost about 6500.00 each. I read an article today on Trendhunter that said that the company grossed over 2 million last year. 2 million dollars!! for fake girls for pervs to have sex with. I knew about the dolls, but I didn't know that some guys have websites set up dedicated to their dolls, and they consider their dolls to be a "legitimate lifestyle choice". What's next? marriage ceremonies for men and their real dolls? Why shouldn't men like them, they're perfect, never nag, never talk back, never put them down, never complain that they don't satisfy them..and they can have them made to their specifications, dress them...or not dress them.. as they see fit, and they don't care if they spend all day lounging on the couch, drinking beer and watching football. They're still ready and willing to provide a night of hot monkey loving.. or as hot as sex with a fake rubber doll can get. Before long, we'll have the motorized, robot version like you see in some futuristic sci-fi movies. It kinda reminds me of one of my favorite movies. It came out in the late 80's, I believe, called Cherry 2000 with Melanie Griffith. Where a guy whose Android girlfriend that he loved blows a fuse and he misses her so much he decides to replace her. She was a Cherry 2000 model, and they don't make them anymore, but he gets a tip there's a warehouse full of them but they're in the wastelands. He hires a tracker, played by Melanie Griffith, to help him make it through the wasteland and find the warehouse. It's a great movie. Fortunately, the flesh and blood woman wins out in the end and gets her man..but for some of these guys who own Real Dolls.. I'm not so sure that would be the case with them.

A Sad Day...




I had intended to post about a few things today, but they'll just have to wait. I'm a little sad and distracted today. My cousin's husband died of bone cancer. He was 36, they had been married for 8 years and they have a little girl, and my heart is breaking for them. I'll post more tomorrow, but for tonight I'm not really in the mood.

Idiots Who Don't Know Their Job

 


Today is the first official day of NaBloPoMo and I almost screwed up the very first day. It's 11:00 p.m. and I'm just getting in my post for today, because my computer decided to stop working this morning. I fired it up this morning and it stayed on for about 10 minutes, and then it shut itself off. So, I turned it on again.. and after about 10 minutes it shut itself off again. I popped open the case to have a look and saw that the CPU fan had stopped working,so the processor was overheating and shutting it off. I was not a happy camper, at all! Of course, since I don't have a car, I had to call my dad and see if I could get him to run to CompUsa for me and get me a new fan. They had some running around to do but agreed to go to Best Buy instead of CompUsa, because the closest CompUsa is on the other side of the river...way far from here.. This wouldn't be a problem, except for the fact that the morons who work at Best Buy don't know their ass from their elbow. They said they didn't have CPU fans, even though the girl I talked to when I called to ask if they did told me that they did have them. They had case fans, but no CPU fans. Now, I'm no computer genious, but I could have sworn I remembered J having several fans in his case, and the CPU fan and he bought them all at the same time and the same place..they're pretty much standard..but I was assured this was not the case by the mental midgets at Best Buy. I then called Circuit City and was told that they didn't carry CPU fans by themselves, I would have to buy a whole heat sink with the fan.. to the tune of about 30.00 Since I wasn't there to look at the fans myself, I agree, thinking they must know what they'r talking about..they're the computer guys. The thing they brought to me was a totally different style than the one I have already and there was no way it was going to fit into my case..so I screwed the fan off of the heat sink and screwed the fan onto the heat sink I already had, and it works like a charm! Next time, i'll know better than to listen to those idiots.
