Conspiracy Anyone?

So...I'm not big on conspiracy theories, but I couldn't pass this one up. I was talking with one of my coworkers, and we developed this story:

the hospitals are tied in with the cell phone companies? By George! Just think…cell phone companies develop a product that “may cause cancer” sending lots of people running to call their doctors for a check-up and when they try to make an appointment, random lines are “down” and numbers are unavailable. So the customer has to call around and wait on hold, thus running up minutes!

Ok...so here's your task...add to the story!

I'm not complaining about how cold it is, because that is so me two years ago. Instead, I'm going to tell you about what things you can do to have fun, even if you don't like to talk of warm things and cold things...you know who you are.

Ok...so there's snow, which means you can:
  1. put food out in it to save space in your refrigerator
  2. pack some into your lunch box if you forget to make ice
  3. pour some flavored syrup or creamer over it to make ice cream
  4. pretend it's cocaine and walk around expounding the "street value" of your yard (thanks to Better Off Dead)

We can also take a look at the number of people who forget that it snows every winter here in Ohio...maybe not always on the same day, or even week, but that doesn't take away from the instantaneous fright/feeling of invincibility that some get when it snows for the first time in a week...Like they've never seen it, but they can laugh it off as well and still drive badly. See, it all goes back to my post about traffic referees!!! I think it's time to revisit this idea...more to come. That is all for now.
Thank You

What is it about January?

Some folks like to say that "January is one of those months...", which sounds theoretically solid, but doesn't quite grab me intellectually. If you have any suggestions for filling in the blank, let me know.

Also, we were talking about words that shouldn't (but were) combined together to create new, exciting words...Here's a list: (and in parantheses the real words)

1. Infotainment (Information, entertainment)
2. Eduneering (Education, Engineering)
3. Knowledge Half Life (it's not a combination, but hideous all the same)
4. helpspiffyful (a rare breed, this one contains three words: Helpful, Spiffy, Playful)
5. Ginoment (ginormous compliment)

That is all for now, but if you have any to add, please comment!

Breakfast potatoes: A Quorum if you will

I'm taking an informal poll on breakfast potato preferences...Here are the choices:

1. McDonald's hashbrown disc-like thingy
2. Burger King's potato nugget whatsits
3. your own:______________
4. none of the above

My personal preference lies with the McDonald's hashbrown disc-like thingy. It is true road food in that you can eat it with one hand and still drive your car. Just don't try eating it right when you pick it up, as it can tend to be extremely hot...That is all for now, but please comment!!

Holy Cow

Ok...I usually reserve this space for things I don't like. However, I totally have to gush Mac-y for a second.

Have you seen the new MacBook Air? It's so totally awesome...I want one. That's all for now.
