In a world where you could fill in the blank as long as your voice was low enough

Don LaFontaine died September 3. And because I know many males who love to mimic these voices, here's a video.



And a comic strip to explain how females (some of the time, anyway) feel about it.

1 of 37023 hits

Ten years ago today Google was born. It was probably a little rough at first. I'm sure there weren't as many hits, and that it didn't know everything it does now, and the logo probably didn't change with world events, national holidays, and weather updates. But... it was there. Larry Page and Serney Brin were only 27 and 26 years old. I bet they had no idea that they were dumbing down future generations. That Google, which comes from the word googol, which represent the numeral one followed by 100 zeros, would become a verb: past, present, and future. "I googled it," "I am googling it now," and "I will google it." That everyone, from the President to my little brother would use it when a particularly hard to find tidbit was needed. Scratch that. It doesn't have to be particularly hard. In fact, it's usually just curiousity. How do you spell definetly? Did you mean definitely? Why, yes. I did. Thank you, all-knowing Google. Type in the letters F and O and you can pick what it was exactly you were going to google: was it football? forever 21? fox news? or the food network? Well, I was looking for information about folic acid but Forever 21 has such cheap and cute clothing... thanks Google. My procrastinating self is happy.
Do you have any information on nephrolithiasis? 1-10 of 300,000. Good gosh. You need a life. Actually, you don't. You have too much of a life. No one should have 300,00 pieces of information on nephrolithiasis.

Happy birthday. Go define party. And no, I did not mean Lindsey Lohan.

Have at it

So, Michael Phelps has an amazing body. Duh. Which doesn't overshadow the fact that I found all of the attention he was getting in Beijing repulsive. And then, he wasn't even at the Closing Ceremony.... he was making his appearance in London, where he got a 9 jet flyover. Our soldiers, returning from Iraq don't even get that! The men and women who put there life on the line, who give up the possibility of a family, a career, of travel. They come home to their family. No band plays, no crowd cheers. And definitely no flyover. So, why does the swimmer? I know, I know. He trumped some amazing world records, he has worked beyond hard to get where he is, I'm proud that he is American, and so glad his mom made it to every race... but, gimme a break.

All of this to say, here's his diet. And a one day workout. No wonder he doesn't have a girlfriend.

2nd gear impersonation

All I said was, "Why are your pants wet?"

Yes. There is always the chance that he could be the driver beside you. As your mom always says, "It's not your driving skills I'm worried about. It's everybody else's."

P.S. The room isn't as green as this video makes it look.

P.P.S. We aren't completely done with it anyway. That's why the walls are so bare.

P.P.S.S. Not like I care what you think about my room . Obviously. That's why I have taken the time to point out its flaws. Like girls who say, "I just didn't care what I looked like today. I just threw something on." Hello? I think you do care because you are pointing out how bad you look. If you really and truly didn't care... you wouldn't say anything.
