I’ve been a bad bad girl..

                        -Fiona Apple

 

So I did the bad thing.  Something that I swore I wouldn’t do.  I didn’t really mean to; it just kind of happened.

 

What is this bad thing you ask?

 

I committed one of the cardinal sins of blogging.  I started a blog with the best intentions of posting regularly, and what did I do? I lasted for about 8 weeks.  I think my problem is I haven’t mastered the art of the short post.  All of my posts so far have been pretty epic and I need to learn how to blog some of my more random thoughts rather than only wholly fleshed out concepts. 

 

So this is my first attempt at the short post.  We will see how it goes. 

 

A few things just to get caught up though:

 

Thanks to everyone who commented and sent me nice emails about my post about riding the bus – I am happy that some of you found it inspirational. J

 

Joseph – thanks for pointing me to the Elf Dance video – I guess humans can actually do the elf dance.  To all the people that have asked me to do it in person though, the answer is still no.

 

George C – I got your email – I don’t know who this other mysterious “Trisha” is that you met at GameFest, but believe me, when you meet me, you will know you have met me.  J

 

Finally – to close off on this week on a happy note – here is a list of some of the things I have laughed really hard at over the last few weeks.  If you are easily offended you should probably not check these things out.  Consider yourself warned. J

 

http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-5427138374898988918&q=Easter+Bunny&hl=en - I always wondered what the Easter Bunny was up to when he wasn't delivering chocolaty goodness. 

 

http://www.craigslist.org/about/best/aus/192659778.html - this one actually made me cry it was so funny. 

 

http://www.homestarrunner.com/sbemail.html - thanks for pointing this out to me Jeff!

 

Ok.  That was reasonably short.  Have an awesome weekend everyone – especially you guys going to and working on the South Carolina Codecamp!

What are you using to blog with? Using the GWB web interface doesn't lend itself well to doing quick, off-the-cuff type of short posts.

Download Live Writer Beta...way easier to make the quick "short post" with.

Thanks Trisha for the Code Camp mention!!

FWIW I have only ever used the GWB Web Interface... maybe I should try Live Writer as well.

You ever do the elf dance in person and so help me god it better be captured on video. ;)

I'm pretty sure I saw Trisha do the elf dance. That's how I knew she was lying when she said she didn't play WoW.

You can't dance like that and not know how to play WoW. It's just not possible.

George's comment makes me wonder; do you think Alizée has a free WoW account because they took her dance?

I had no idea the Easter Bunny was so hardcore, those videos are awesome. Does Santa just visit the people on the nice list, or does he keep a naughty list for the rest of the year?
