To ring in 2009, I bring you the secret mating habits of the shrew in HD. The good stuff starts after 1:15, so hang in there, it’s worth it.
Happy New Year!
You may have noticed over the last few months my posts have been infrequent. Hopefully that will change soon.
To be perfectly honest, after my server error wiped out my blog a few months ago, I’ve had a hard time getting here to post. Part of it is just that I hate the blog template and the blog software that I use has very few to choose from. I haven’t taken the time to learn the language necessary to craft my own, so I’m stuck on ugly.
Another big thing, which happens to be the point of this post, is that I had to go 9 rounds with Dell support recently. I’m going to link you to my rant, rather than explaining it all here, but if you read it, you’ll understand why I’ve been struggling.
Here’s the summary: Dell sucks.
Expanded summary: Even if your Dell computer is under warranty, tech support will tell outrageous lies about what is wrong with the Dell POS, blame the problem on you and attempt to extort money from you for repairs that the Dell computer does not even need.
Hope you are all having a wonderful holiday season! Here’s a Christmas video that I hope you’ll enjoy.
My new favorite commercial:
A 63-year-old British man has unwittingly caused his own death. Out of respect, I’m not mentioning his name.
The cause of death? Apparently, aggressive nose picking.
He reportedly had a nose picking habit and suffered from dementia that was brought on by alcoholism. The alcoholism was brought on by a brain hemorrhage that he has suffered as a young man. Are you following this?
Anyway, he died from a nosebleed that was brought on by the nose picking. Poor guy.
In summary, listen to what your mother told you and don’t pick your nose. There’s a very good reason that she told you not to do it.
Alcoholism + picking nose = death
