Random Thoughts for Today

Yet another day. More random thoughts. I know you were just on the edge of your seats waiting for the next one. </sarcasm>

==========

Did they change the speed limit on I-29 through town? I could have sworn the signs say 55 mph, but no one seems to drive that (not even me). I tend to drive around 60mph on interstate through town. Even though that’s over the limit, people are still flying past me. Both on the way to and from the south Walmart, I had people fly past me.

==========

An apparently the city is under a blinker fluid shortage as well. It seems like no one uses ’em when they switch lanes, either in town or on interstate. It’s no better when people are actually turning.

I noticed yesterday that I needed to replace the windshield wiper blade on the driver’s side. The end is ripped, just like what happened on the passenger side. So I bought a blade at Walmart and went to try to replace it when I got home. I can’t get the damn old one off. I had absolutely no issues getting the old one off the passenger side when I needed to change that one. Not sure what’s up with the driver’s side. I don’t know if it’s just too cold or if it’s corroded with crap or what. I’m gonna try again after it warms up. No need to freeze my fingers off.

==========

Success. I got the old wiper blade off. My finger hurts like an SOB from holding that damn release down while trying to get the blade on. New one slipped on in seconds. Now I’m ready for spring rains (well after the melt & flood of course).

I brought some homework home with me again this weekend. There’s a beta due of this website on March 15th. That’s just over a week. I still have a bunch of stuff to code. I’m working as fast as I can but not so fast that I add bugs to the code. I honestly don’t know if I’ll have it done by the 15th. That’s why I worked on it last Saturday and planned on doing it again today. But I really don’t feel like working on it. All I wanna do is take a nap. Snuggle up under the covers w/ my body pillow (with a fuzzy pillowcase) and just forget about reality for a while. But I don’t know if I dare.

Dear ESPN:

I watch the Nationwide series to find new drivers trying to make it into the series to cheer for. I do NOT watch it to watch the damn Cup drivers “play”. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE talk to the Nationwide regulars. Stop covering nothing but the Cup drivers. Do you have any clue how close I am to stop watching your fucked up coverage completely? Then again, it’s obvious that you don’t give a damn what the fans think.

==========

Mark it on your calendar. Saturday, March 5, 2011 … I am at home and am voluntarily turning OFF a race. This Nationwide race is awful. Only 10 cars on the lead lap on lap 65 of 200. The Cup drivers are stinking up the show. 2nd place was 11 seconds behind the leader until this caution … no idea yet what the caution was for. With a crappy race and even crappier ESPN coverage, I’m not gonna waste my time.

==========

Decided to watch some episodes of Being Human online since I gave up on the race. And I thought I’d hook up the computer to the tv to watch the episodes in a larger version. Unfortunately the episode viewer on Syfy’s website isn’t really full screen when you put it in full screen mode. 🙁

Is 7pm on a Saturday nite too early to go to bed?

Comments

  1. i amazingly read these blog posts, even though you do complain a lot. but i do want to comment on some of the things that happened to you today.

    first: the interstate speed limit is “go with the flow”. if you are hogging traffic up at 60 then you need to speed up with what traffic is doing.

    laughed about the wiper blade story. just funny. and your finger hurts lol.

    is that date suppose to be 2001 or 2011? cuz that’s a miracle! (if you really did, which i may doubt…)

    have you watched Battlestar Galactica at all? the tv series i’m currently watching is 3rd rock from the sun (so funny)

    get netflix also. this will save you from early bed times lol.

      Well … it is *my* blog. I can post whatever the hell I please on it.

      I do go with the flow, but I don’t want to be the one pulled over. And I’m not “hogging up” traffic. I’m not gonna drive like an idiot just because everyone else is.

      Bite me.

      Fixed.

      Battlestar Galactica doesn’t interest me. And no desire to get Netflix. I don’t watch enough movies or tv shows to warrant the cost, no matter how insignificant it might seem. I’m trying to save up for a house. That’s more important to me than watching movies or tv.

      And what’s on or not on tv isn’t the reason I’m contemplating going to bed early.
