Should I Take the Bite?

August 23, 2009

An Apple. A Mac Apple, specifically. Many of you know what a lousy time I’ve had trying to find video-editing software for my Vista PC and my Kodak digital camera (that records movies in .MOV files). After pulling out tufts of hair in frustration, I quit. I’ve download a billion codecs, all SORTS of video-editing […]

I’m joining the crowd! What a sell-out I am! Ack! EVeryone is having these “FAIL” photos on their blogs, and I’ve managed to resist thus far. But golly gee whillikers, some of them are just so durn-tooting funny! How can I hold out against something like that? That was the very long intro to just […]

I splurged. I’m on a coffee binge these days. Don’t ask me why, because the temperatures have been in the high 80s and 90s and you’d think I’d be wanting iced tea or something. But I’m just loving coffee right now, and so I’ve been experimenting with a few of the “fancy brands” (or “foo-foo” […]

First there was the insipid Leave It to Beaver. Then Walter Cronkite. Then, Cosmos (gag). Then… game shows, soap operas, and the “miniseries.” As if TV could not hit any lower and couldn’t suck us away from true life any more, along came Jerry Springer and then “reality” TV.

Well, it’s 11:30 am and already my makeup has melted off. :hmph: We’re experiencing a heat wave, here in East Coast. YUK. I like cooler, crispier weather.
