Thought I’d post just to knock M0TZO’s socks off (you can pull them back up now Paul). Been away for a while, maybe try to post more who knows?
Decided to delete my Facebook account today, or “deactivate it” as they call it. Figured it was pretty lame being 26 and wondering if my friends were getting plastered, bored at school, or going to bed.
I don’t think I’ll return either. Facebook is time consuming, confusing to the computer-illiterate like me, and down right, as I’ve said before, lame. Sure, it’s made that guy a lot of money. I’m not bitter, we used to be a capitalists nation (see post about now being socialists), and if you had an idea, you could run with it and end up with money in the coffers. Good for him.
I hope I didn’t offend any of my friends, and by that I mean, probably none of them will notice unless I tell them that I deleted the account. One “friend” had over 700 “friends.” Highly doubtful he knew all of those people, but I digress.
Adios Facebook! Rest in your lameness bliss.
Got my new camera in today, a Canon A590. I have a Sony Alpha 200 DSLR, but it’s bulky (though takes awesome pics). I do a lot of work that requires getting dirty, so I don’t really want to drag an expensive camera out in the field. Maybe I’ll become more active on Flickr since I have a smaller, more compact camera. Time will tell.
So far, this little camera seems to be pretty cool, easy to use and setup. Going to give it a workout this weekend.
Haven’t blogged in a while, so wanted to put a note here. Paul, be proud be proud
Listening to the President tonight during one of his first addresses to the nation, I couldn’t help but feel that we are becoming a socialist society. I better head down to the local government office and get a a place in the head of the line.
Couldn’t help but chuckle when he blamed the Bush administration for “this crisis.” He then went on to say that banks took risky bets on people that they knew couldn’t pay back a loan. Didn’t the CLINTON administration pass a law on this? Hmm
Hate to admit it, but I’m pretty addicted to the game. Haven’t gotten past “medium” difficulty. Tried it on the higher setting with dismal results. Guess I’ll have to play non-stop to get better, but that’s not likely to happen anytime soon. Hopefully will have some good stuff to report on this week. Lots going on on Capitol Hill. I’m sure we will be a nanny state soon enough. Wonder if I’ll get bailed out?
Truthfully, I have forgotten to blog the last 2 days.
Only thing I’ve noticed the last few days is that Obama called for all Americans to begin to reducing their energy consumption on the campaign trail. That’s a cool idea, might save us some money and help the planet out. But, doesn’t he keep the Oval Office at 80F? Reporters have stated that it is that hot in there, he is “from Hawaii” and likes the warmer temp. Do as I say, not as I do. The Democrat slogan!
Check it out for yourself (yes I know this is a link to the Weekly Standard, a conservative magazine):
Hmm, wish I had something clever today, but computer says no 🙁
Thank God. If I have to pay taxes, I expect the people representing me to pay taxes as well. However, I do understand that the laws are skewed for Democrats. If he would have been a Republican though, he would be in jail.
