Beyond Reason

Dear Google

Dear Google,

Thanks to you my email is free, my nearly obsessive-compulsive self is perfectly facilitated by 12 Google Calendars, friends and family can oogle over my pictures in the “picture house” (Picasa), my thoughts are stored in Google Notebook, my various web sites are tracked by Google Analytics, I absorb thoughts and ideas from over 20 blogs which pour into Google Reader, I rarely get lost as Google Maps is one handy-dandy-accurate-easy-to-use tool (in which you can create and save your own maps – did you know that?!), and, to top this Google cake, I now have a Droid which connects directly to my Google account. Guess what my favorite possession is? My Droid. Dear Droid – you are next. I will next dedicate a blog post to you. Your moment to shine in the sun is coming.

I have been googleized. This is made most clear by the fact that I just wrote this blog post.

And I love it.

Once, I applied to work at Google, and they didn’t accept me. Apparently sheer enthusiasm isn’t enough. They have a comedy department. Did you know that?! Apparently they weren’t aware of my comedic skill either.

Google, it appears you may own my soul. Don’t be evil!


What Not

Everybody should be able to play hours of tennis. I did tonight. And it was too much fun. I’ve missed my calling; should be a pro tennis player. It is too blasted fun to wale on a ball.


If you haven’t wasted time have watching Rhett and Link, I can help you with that. Here’s another one of their better ones, on making resolutions. It’s quite amusing!


For web developers, if you have never heard of the Web Developer toolbar from Firefox, you are living a sad existence as I did until recently. I am almost upset at myself for not downloading it earlier. It’s freaking amazing: a free tool that provides some better functionality than Dreamweaver. That’s saying a lot. 🙂


Last, what philosophical nonsense is coming next? Still deciding. I might write an ode to Roger Federer (who seems to have peaked – it is incredibly sad). Or my Toyota Camry which is still kicking. It’s amazing! Everyone should buy Toyota’s. They’re your friend for life. (My car is almost as old as me.)

So I haven’t posted in fifty million years. I was going to post a “serious” one on politics and religion. That’s coming later. I take too long on the “serious” ones. I’m really serious about it. Ya know? (That was funny – in case you didn’t get it.)

So – point of this post – here’s a site you’ve got to go to:

If you’re into web design/development and other such graphically/programmatically related things, this site is very cool. And the music’s great too. Make sure your speakers are on.

Here’s another great one I ran into:

One caveat: no, I do not spend all day on the computer finding “cool” sites. I’m actually looking for a job (and have one). And am hoping to get back to posting “serious” posts. I can never figure it out – how personal do I make my blog? Just focus on topics (which can be great fun) or also meander into my personal leanings, random nonsense, and whatnot? I’ll figure it out someday.

In the meantime, post your thoughts, as always.
