Cool and Big Brothery at the Same Time

From San Diego Blog:

Where I've Been

We're on a roadtrip and one of Happy's posts got me thinking about

where I've been in the U.S. I guess I could have counted Texas, but I only flew into the airport and then out again.


visited countries map is less impressive. I've been into Victoria to the north and just TJ to the south.

Taxation and Leprosy

It should be against the law to have to pay taxes if you have pimples. I would not complain in either direction anymore, I promise. When do pimples end?! I am too old for this look of leprosy.

Something I Fixed

In our disposable society, where I almost broke down and bought a replacement, I feel pride that I fixed my own blow dryer! I just wanted to share that with everyone. The path to the fix was pretty lame and took way too much time, involved stripping one screw and almost losing another. (Yep, I had a screw loose!) When you have long hair like mine, it's an important tool. Next on the docket is my vacuum. Charging up my power screwdriver! I need those 5 hours of handyman work from Luke on my birthday!

Headline News: Virus-Laden Poo

It's late and someone with my own brand of humor elected to add an article about the "virus-laden poo" on Mt. McKinley. Do we need vaporize or is it that we now know where all the poo is going?

I like the auto-generated ad that I saw when viewing the article:

Mountain Climber on eBay

Is Your Dog Bulimic?

The strange graffiti just speaks for itself.

For Matthew's Next Birthday

Hey buddy, I'm blogging this, so I don't forget what I'm getting you for your next birthday: a squirrel flask. Now I just need to hunt a squirrel to send to the taxidermist.

I Need Fixing

A bunch of albums from cool bands are just out. I'm enjoying the new Coldplay album "X&Y". I went back to buying tangible CDs from Amazon, after trouble with running out of iTunes purchased music. I still buy one song at a time on iTunes. One of my hopes in buying the CDs was that the liner notes would be cool. The liner notes are almost non-existant for the new Coldplay album. A further irony is that they have all of these save the earth links in the back and boast of the materials being earth friendly. It would have been more earth friendly to only print a single sheet for the cover and to skip all of the lousy quality pictures and blank pages. Enough dissing. I really like the songs "What If" and "Fix You" so far. Here are some of my favorite lyrics:

From What If

What if I got it wrong, and no poem or song
Could put right what I got wrong
Or make you feel I belong
What if you should decide that you don't want me there by your side
That you don't want me there in your life.

Every step that you take could be your biggest mistake
It could bend or it could break
But that's the risk that you take
What if you should decide
That you don't want me there in your life
That you don't want me there by your side.

From Fix You

When you try your best but you don't succeed
When you get what you want but not what you need
When you feel so tired but you can't sleep
Stuck in reverse

And the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can't replace
When you love someone but it goes to waste
Could it be worse?

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

And high up above or down below
When you're too in love to let it go
But if you never try you'll never know
Just what you're worth

I'm Sure Someones Kidding Around...

This week's health news contained two great tidbits. First, women with big hips - with fat on them - live longer. Now if I could get some of the bad fat off of me - but wait there's more...

People who laugh 15 minutes per day can expect to burn up to 4.4 lbs in a year. I knew laughing was good for you, but now I have extra reason to be silly.

More on Shy Pee

How sad is my life that I find this so interesting? This sounds like a terrible thing to have. Some cases are so bad that the people learn how to insert their own catheters.

The workshop involves practicing peeing in public :O.

Embarrassing Myself

I used to worry that if my friends read my blog, they might think I was weird. I am realizing I embarrass myself a lot more in person than I think I do here.

Shy Whistling Pee

I am so thankful that I don't have shy bladder syndrome, but I think I've stumbled upon a new variant of it. I was in the bathroom yesterday, minding my own business, when someone came in to use the mirror. She was whistling really loudly. It was akin to the Pokemon cartoon that caused all of those seizures, except it was whistling and the outcome was a time-out for my bodily functions. I sat and waited hoping she would finish and/or leave with her whistling lips. She did finally stop whistling, but it was only because she got a call on her cell phone (which of course had a totally irritating ring tone). She then proceeded to start talking really loudly. I could also hear the other side of the conversation. This urgent call that she took in the bathroom was about how her friend wanted her to wear her hair in two pony tails!! Out of pure irritation, I flushed the toilet, in hopes of shaming her into cutting the call off. I finally gave up. She was still putting makeup on when I left.
