I Have Some Really Good Ideas For Posts, But I Can't Find Time To Write Them All Down.
Don't like it?
You'll have to live with it until I can get things a little more organized.
That is all.

I Had a Caffeine Headache Before 8:00 This Morning
The title says it all. I had to get up early to take my sister to her government class (she's taking it now to get it out of the way), and since I didn't get enough sleep last night, I had to drink paint thin--excuse me, tea* so I didn't kill us by pulling into traffic or falling asleep at the wheel. As my sister put it yesterday, better to be overly cautious than totally dead.
Why is it that some people seem to think that being in a turn lane means they don't have to signal? I hate it when people do that, because a lot of times it's not that obvious whether they're planning to turn, or whether they just aren't paying attention and plan to go straight. Then again, I'm the type that signals intent to turn while cruising the aisles, looking for a parking space, so maybe I'm just anal. But I think I'm right on this one.
Morning show DJs are funny. Just thought I'd throw that out there.
It struck me as I was coming home that blogging (with comments) is kind of like hosting a call-in show on the radio. Especially if one's blog is politically oriented, like LGF. Blogging without comments (or without a highly motivating topic) is more like hosting regular radio, where people call in occasionally, but mostly the DJ just has to guess how many people are listening by keeping an eye on the advertising stats. And blogging without comments or a hit counter is just plain pathetic. It's like being one of those wannabe DJs who broadcasts out of his basement on a ham radio and pretends he's the real thing.
Hey, I depressed myself before nine o'clock. I think that's a new record for me.
I wore flip-flops this morning because I didn't want to bother with socks, and the lawn was wet. It was really cold, but at least my feet are clean.
That's quite enough rambling for one sitting. I'll think I'll go back to bed.
*Don't get me wrong, I love tea. I just like it strong enough to strip furniture.

Check out this video, via Emperor Misha I. Turn up your speakers before you watch it, though.

Reports of My Demise Have been Greatly Exaggerated
Wow, it's been a while. I hardly ever posted to begin with, but I think three months is the longest I've ever gone between posts. Going home for the summer and being forced to switch from DSL to a 56k modem on my parent's computer will do that to you. If any of the Loyal Citizens are reading this, the Minister of Compassion says hello. (I can't find anyplace to access AIM, and my parents won't get it.) Ah, me. Such is the life of an explorer.
I think one of the most frustrating things about deciding to seriously blog is just trying to come up with enough decent content to make visiting the site worthwhile. Of course, since I don't know how to make a blogroll, I don't think I'm getting any traffic anyway. I don't even have a site counter (how pathetic is that).
Maybe I'll start publishing installments of my novel online. If someone stumbles across it and likes what they see, they could tell other people, and maybe I could have one of my comp-sci major friends help me with the site, and I could expand a little, and then someday--dare I say it? Yes! Rule the world! Mwahahahahaha!
Yes, well. I also plan to let my sisters contribute. They could write out what they want to say, and then I could enter it in their names. It could work.
Righto, then. I'm going to sign off now; I'm in the computer lab at the public library, and there's a dirty old man in here who's looking a amateur porn, so I'm going to clear out and blog again later. TTFN and all that rot.
