My affairs are slightly more ordered now.

It would seem that my last post is insufficient. Even though I've had like five viewers since I wrote it, nobody's written anything (or stayed longer than thirty seconds). I don't blame them. It was just something I slammed into my keyboard after eating the rest of a bag of M&Ms I had purchase on a plane yesterday morning.

I better explain that a bit better. I flew from Washington D.C. to my metropolis of primary residence yesterday. On the whole, it was an enjoyable experience. I got to spend a few hours in Ronald Reagan National Airport, which is beautiful. Honestly my favorite airport in the world. I had a chance to buy and read The Wall Street Journal, which I missed after being away from home so long. I got to listen to the entire soundtrack of Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops. It's a beautiful soundtrack, even though the lyrics of Calling to the Night don't make a whole lot of sense. I can forgive it though, seeing as how it was probably written in Japanese. I got to eat a few good donuts. Even though I had a crappy Coach class seat, rather than my preferred First class seat, it was an aisle seat and I sat next to a comparatively attractive woman who didn't bug me or fart or anything. I got to read a little from A History of Modern Computing.

In the end, I like walking around other cities wearing a suit and looking important. Travel is one of my favorite things in the whole world. I know that a whole lot of those TSA witches can be annoying, but when seen as part of the big picture it's not that big of a deal.

Travel is fun.

Hard Candy Shell

You know how you sometimes get that funny taste in your mouth when you eat M&Ms and you can't quite get all of the little pieces of hard candy shell out of your mouth? They get stuck between your cheek and lower jaw, and they're super-annoying.

Where's my ID?

I had a dream last night that I was playing onstage with Def Leppard. We were sort of adlibbing and I was playing a doubleneck guitar. It was so cool, especially the twelve-string guitar solo I pulled off at the end. I need to get a band put all the way together, as in give it a name. And maybe get another guitarist and vocalist. And a drummer. Those are pretty hard to find where I live, ya know.

Anyway, this is sort of a waste of bandwidth. But I realized the other day that a TRUE netizen needs not worry about wasting collective bandwidth, especially with a service like Blogger. The true netizen needs to always contribute worthwhile information to the space so that others can use it.

Stop making me pay for your stuff, Yahoo. I can't wait til Microsoft acquires you. Then your stuff will be FREE.
