Occupied Territory

Perhaps not as brilliant as the Ron Paul blimp being weighed down by too much gold, but still... XKCD never fails to deliver:

Why I love Wikipedia

If you are looking for unbiased, fact-based encyclopedic knowledge, Wikipedia might not be your best bet.

If, however, you are looking for a synopsis of "Baby Got Back," with such pearls of wisdom as
Mix-a-Lot also briefly touches upon the roles that ethnicity, nutrition, and physical fitness play in determining the shape and size of the female buttocks. He recommends that any exercises performed should be limited to the abdominal area. He cautions against a fitness routine strenuous enough to diminish the heft of the gluteal muscles. Though he offers no broad dietary guidelines, Mix-a-Lot contends that the dish "red beans and rice" is an important food staple for maintaining healthy buttocks.
then you've come to the right place.

Culturally and Musically speaking, there are times I feel like I live in the wrong century. But the Internet more than makes up for it all with its never-ending supply of humor.

Long Time, No See

Well, I haven't posted at all this year. The few readers I had have all quit checking, I'm sure.

That's okay. I post largely to air my thoughts, anyway.

Just to give a quick synopsis of my year thus far... I bought a house. It's a complete fixer upper. So far, I've finished the Master Bedroom. Next up is the Guest Bathroom. After that, all I have left is the Master Bathroom, Master Closet, Guest Bedroom Number One, Guest Bedroom Number Two, Kitchen, Wine Cellar, Living Room, Deck, Landscaping, and a Privacy Fence.

I'm on the Five Year Plan for fixing it.

My computer died early on in the year. I haven't had a computer that worked well since I quit using my iMac five years ago. I've had two friends build me computers that were supposed to be awesome. Both sucked ass. I just bought a cheap computer from Wal-Mart. So far, it's worked far better, at under half the price. Go figure.

Most importantly (to me, at least), I got engaged. Being in a relationship is both more challenging and more rewarding than I ever anticipated. And I thought it would be both.

So yeah. I have a computer now. Let's see whether I can stay online long enough to get this blog going again!
