Where to start?
Tornadoes in Oklahoma
I swear if anybody makes the mistake of mentioning the need for prayer in schools to me in person, I will cunt punt them. Hey, here’s a thought, if prayer works at averting tornadoes from schools, you fuckers should pray harder. Like every day, just add that to your prayer list: Please Baby Jeebus, don’t let any schools get hit by a tornado today. Because if that’s all it takes to save kids, you need to get on it.
Also, to anybody who used the phrase “God is good” in response to the old woman who found her dog still alive in the rubble: Your god is an asshole. I am so happy that her dog was saved, but if your god is so good, why did those kids drown in a blown out grade school?
Seriously, people, I don’t care what you think about God and tornadoes and Oklahoma (I have some fairly wide-ranging opinions on those topics), but keep your ignorant hurtful bullshit to yourself. Hell, I’ve declared a six-month hiatus on Okie jokes, so maybe you could take a break from making people feel like shit for being insufficiently holy to deserve having their child’s life spared.
Summer: The Season of Construction
They’ve torn up my street and they say it won’t be finished until August. I’m used to this in the Land of Potholes, but this morning, I had to take three different detours to get to work. Looks like that’s going to be the case all summer.
WordPress Compose New Post
I was listening to NPR this morning and they had a segment on about the new Xbox. Xbox One, which seems counter-intuitive to me. From Xbox 360 to Xbox 1? Anyway, one of the features being touted in the company’s presentation wasn that you don’t need a remote. It’s voice activated!
Is it just me or does voice activation seem like the ultimate turn-off? Not only do I never want to find myself saying, “Xbox Television Channel 40,” I can imagine perfectly what would happen if I dated a guy who used a voice activated Xbox to control his TV. We’d go on a few dates and I would think, “Hey, he’s kind of hot,” but then, there would be the first time I went over to his house. And as soon as the words “Xbox Television” came out of his mouth, it would be over. Because voice activation requires a particular kind of imperious tone and clear enunciation that transforms everyone into a douchebag. Nobody can sound like a decent person while using voice activated controls. This is why I despise phone systems that want you to “Just say what you need to do.” No fucking thanks FedEx. I do not want to be sitting alone in my office saying, “Track a package.” Let me push a fucking button.
The King is dead but he still ain’t gone
Saw the news this morning of Elvis’ passing. It’s the terrifying thing about having pets. You know you will lose them soon. Thinking of you, Cranky. Would it help if I shipped you a pair of boxers?
I finally had to set a deadline for turning in the manuscript to my publisher. Par for the course, I’ve now missed my deadline. So I better get back to working on revisions.
