Month: July 2002

this bothers me

I haven’t eaten a shelled sunflower seed in, say, 6 months.
I do, however, remove my sheets and wash them on a weekly basis.

Today, I found an opened, half sunflower shell in my bed. Just hanging out like it owned the place… how did it get there? Did you put it there?

The Remnant

This is like, what, the 10th in the series of Left Behind books? Something like that. While I can’t say the writing gets any better, it has a short, easy to read quality that is great for pre-beddy time reading fun.

It’s kind of creepy, too, because while I’m a Christian I’ve never read the bible personally… or really know many people who have. So it’s creepy, as I was saying, to see all what the bible says is going down at the end of all this worldly worldness. Water turning to blood, nasty people doing nasty things, and well, you know.

It waivers between spooky possibilities and I guess what I would say are things pretty much unbelievable. Yeah God can do great things but sometimes it just seems convoluted. I have a hard time cooresponding the character traits perfection on convolutedosity in one being.

So, anyway, the book is still good though — lite reading, but still pretty good. Characters are pretty decently written, and a good deal of suspense. Worth reading… but you’d of course have to start from book #1. And the earlier books are probably better, simply because so much happens later on that is unbelievable (yet biblical, and necessary to be present).

Not sure what I’m going to read next… gots me a big stack of those books to read, need to just pick one out.

skillz

I have no — and I’m not exagerating by saying NO — skill for design at all. I have no idea what looks good. Ugh. It really is unforunate because I’m decent with getting HTML to do what it needs to, and good with that programming stuff, but when it comes to making things look pretty… it’s just unpossible. And I know I could do a lot of cool stuff if I just knew how to make pretty things.

Why the heck don’t like any people that post weblogs use capital letters? Seriously. It bothers me.

ahh, yes, tasty crack cocaine

Okay, so altoids introduces a new candy and shoves it down those mini-aisles that entangle the checkout area. The candy looks innocent enough, surely, as you can see below:

Yup, a perfectly innocent candy treat, right? Yeah, until you open it:

You see, apparently it is now legal to package, distribute, and sell sour crack conviniently placed near your checkout lane. Mmmm, crack.
