Aphrodite -- yeah

Saw author and crime reporter Aphrodite Jones on TV. I like her.

I hate snow

I hate snow. I really, really hate it.

As a child, I enjoyed playing in snow. Nowadays though, I hate it, since it means having to trudge through the white stuff, shovel my driveway, and generally drive under hazardous conditions. Yech.

Lucky gal

My friend Hope looks like a movie star. Now, I would not be interested in her, since I don't think we'd be compatible (and because she's married anyway), but I have to say that she's very lucky. Those kinds of good looks must surely open up a lot of doors for her.

Manuals. We need manuals.

I am astonished at the number of companies that don't seem to understand the need for accurate, comprehensive user manuals or other technical documentation. Absolutely mind-boggling.

These folks do get the concept, though. They do understand. Hallelujah!

Levi is scum

Levi Johnston is scum. Utter scum.

Facebook status updates

I've found that most of the people I know on Facebook tend to post unimaginative status updates. Some of them (this fella, Eddie, for example) are especially unimaginative.

I think this is akin to the manner in which most people create boring photos. They just smile at the camera in different ways and expect to create memories that way. Well, they may create a few memories, but not in the same way that a creative or well-composed photograph would.

Need a nap

Dang, I'm sleep.

Stumbled across some postings by a lady named 'danceronice'. She seems kinda edgy. Volatile, as though you have to watch your words very carefully around her lest she blow up in your face. She strikes me as the sort that you have to be very careful about speaking to. The kind who'd probably be quick to respond more to her gut sense of what you're saying.

I could we wrong about this, so I want to emphasize that in my own mind.

She's kinda like this woman I know, FBR. FBR is much worse though, and has gotten into numerous fights over silly little things. One really needs to tread carefully around FBR, that's for sure.

Gummi Bears

Watching the Gummi Bears on DVD. What a great show.

Padme and open-mindedness

This gal that I knew from grad school, Padme, said that people should strive to be rich because it stinks to be poor. I pointed out that one doesn't have to be rich in order to escape poverty. That is, she was guilty of committing the fallacy of the excluded middle.

Her response, "You're just being close-minded."

What a strange duck. Apparently, being open-minded means that one should agree with her. By her response, she showed that she was incapable of discussing the issue in a principled manner.

Biotechnology: It's the wave of the future. I think it behooves everyone to learn a bit more about anatomy and cell biology. I benefited greatly from some of the "Great Courses" DVD sets from the public library.

Gretch, what are you doing?

Gretchen, what in the world are you doing? Have you no discernment? Have you no common sense?

Gretchen keeps making terrible decisions and spouting incredible foolishness instead of wisdom.

Whoopee do.

Happy New Year, folks. I wish I had a better place to ring in the new year last night. Got together with some friends for some quality dancing, but we could have used more space and a few more partners. Also some better music, though the band wasn't bad at all.

It was certainly a huge improvement over last year's New Year's Eve party. The dancing at that place was TERRIBLE. Blech. Amazingly, the folks I was with said that they had such a good time. I can guarantee that the folks I would normally celebrate with would have said that it was boringly bad.
