Blog Post #820 – “It is better to offer no excuse than a bad one.”

0
Props go out to the our first president George Washington. The only president who cannot blame his issues on the previous one. Being the Deist that he was he gets my props for being somewhat awesome. One quote that I picked out of a movie I saw by my homeboy Richard Dawkins titled The Root of All Evil? Had me thinking the world should check it out. “We are all atheists about most of the gods that societies have ever believed in. Some of us just go one god further.”

But I got to thinking I am not a man of excuses. So anyways. Hey how have you been? I tested an experiment on the myspace collective yesterday. I posted a Bulletin. The Subject was “Good Morning” and the body said “That was it. Thanks for Reading” I recieved 49 responses from my friends list of 140 or so. Now I got to thinking that is a great deal more then I get on my personal site. So now I need to come up with a system that will automatically take my personal blog. Extract the Post. Send it to MySpace put the add a comment link at the bottom of the MySpace Bulletin. So I sent the myspace team a few e-mails asking if they had an API I could look at to see how I can push data to myspace. But knowing that realm they will probably not be very open to this. I also joined the Dev community on the WordPress sites to see  if anyone has anything like this. Then I could probably get this easily converted to blogger and all that fun stuff.

If myspace was like all the other Web2.0 things I could just add an RSS feed to my profile and have that go with whatever. But myspace doesn’t have a functional RSS parser and the RSS feeds from the blogs they have are not exactly easy to use. 30Boxes.com seems to manipulate myspace RSS feeds in a good way. I just like to manage all my feeds and sites through Bloglines.com and taking the time to scroll around myspace just is a bit more effort then I want to put forth to see that Girl#12 has a survey up that she is more like an orange cat then a blue cat.

I was told I need to post some graphics in my posts. Graphics lead to load time and well I have no issue doing it. So some graphics.

Nuke the Whales!

This was spawned from a quote from Nelson from the Simpons. When Lisa was dating him so to speak. She walked into his room and he had a poster that said “Nuke the Whales” Lisa was like umm. Nelson said “Gotta Nuke Something” Now as pointless as this is. I always chuckle about this. The concept of Nuking all the Whales. Maybe I am just retarded but ever since I have seen that I always get a chuckle every time.

I don’t think I mentioned this before but last Saturday I went and got a haircut at a Super Cuts. I must say they have a system that confused me. Most hair places you pay with a credit card and there is a line for a tip on the recipt but this time the lady asked me “Do you want to add anything extra?” all I could think about was hmm hair products I am good thank you. I didn’t know that was for the tip and I didn’t tip the woman that cut my hair. So I feel bad and that I shouldn’t ever use their services ever again. So to the blonde woman that seemed mad at the world I am sorry I didn’t tip you.

I bought a new bed. I must say they are rather expensive and I feeling rather broke. I forgot to move some cash from savings to checking and I got hit with an overdraft fee. Curses I used to have that account protection that would automatically do that. So I got hit with 2 overdraft fees that total $50. Curse the Banks for that.

So the Soda Issue. I have quit drinking soda. I am sticking to clear fluids at work. We get all the free soda we desire. But I have switched from Diet Coke to Dasani, Apple Juice and Coffee. I must say I feel a lot better. I did have a Coke when I was hanging out with Chris and I was nervous about it. But been doing fairly well. Feel refreshed hopefully drop a few lbs.

Been a bit of a slow blogging week. I must admit I have had a pretty rough week. Just been a little overwhelmed with the move and work being crazy. I do apologize Hope all has been well and wish everyone the best.

    Hmmm so yeah I don’t have much to say… I’ve been busy and not online much obviously…

    Umm how about this: Soda rots your teeth. I really try not to drink it unless I’m out & not drinking beer.

    Well I’m sure it’ll be super cool if you get the myspace thing figured out. That is if I did they myspace thing…

    So, what’s the story with this expensive bed you bought? I’ll have to talk to you about it tomorrow night while I drink my beer. 😀
