It’s a Secret to Everyone!

I tottaly forgot about this

Buy something, lots of cool stuff in there. I make about $0.12 on every shirt!

Tippy Desk

Well, today had quite the down pour of rain AND hail. So, that kind of put a damper on any plans we might of had today, although I don't think we had any.

Lila's at the office and I'm at home geeking out and such. Right now I'm exporting my Safari bookmarks over to Firefox on my PC.

Getting Back On Track

I really need to start getting back on track. My writing habits have been so bad lately. When I first started this blog I was writing everyday, sometimes twice a day. Now, I'm lucky if I write once a month.

And that really depresses me to some extent. Why has this blog become a chore instead of something I enjoy? I remember I used to love to go out and find things to write about, and when I had an idea to write about something, I could not wait to type it out and share it with the online. I hate that I feel like I'm letting people down by not writing everyday. It's not easy to come up with something interesting everyday.

I suppose the problem is that I hate stupid posts like,

Dear Blog,

Today I ate grilled cheese and tomato soup then Mr. Whiskers made a poo-poo on the rug.

Stuff like that irrates the living fuck out of me, and yes I do know that 99.9% of blogs consist of the above mentioned ramblings, but I want to make a difference in the blogosphere (God, I hate that word). I know I'm not going to revolutinize the blogging community, but I want to make something worth reading. Something that has meaning.

Wow, when I go, I really go.

As I was writing this, I went back to re-read it for errors and I think I discovered my problem.

I always have a hard time coming up with an idea, but when I do I end up rambling on and on. I started this post as a simple little post to say that I needed to start writing again.

This post might sound like I'm bashing my blog, and I'm tottaly not, is one of the things I'm most proud of and I plan to continue with it until the day I die.

All the President’s Diseases

Health in Plain English has a fascinating article on U.S. president's and all the health problems they've had.

It's funny when you look at William H. Taft who had possibly every disease known to man, and the scroll down a bit to Jimmy Carter who had severe chronic hemorrhoids. Poor Jimmy, he can never catch a break.
