everyone’s got an opinion

May 13th, 2008

here are mine, for today:

* Mike Erickson is a jerk. We went to college together (PSU) and not surprisingly, he was a jerk in college, too! Way to go, Mike. Let’s hear it for the boy.

* We have a new expression in our house: “shovel-worthy.” (Like sponge-worthy, only not.) Is someone worthy of being smacked in the head with a shovel? Then they’re shovel-worthy. Several people come to mind. No, I won’t share names. OK, just 2,330 and that is all. That covers all the robots who sent me junk mail yesterday via the Internet. No, I don’t want to buy your watches, Viagra or porno videos you made of me. Because why? Don’t need ’em. Thanks, though! And no, I don’t want to “get ready for sex in 15 minutes!” I have to go to work. (Here’s a smack with a shovel, at all your virtual skulls.)

* I’ll be glad when the election is over.

* Go, Obama!

* No, I don’t hate women. I just do not care for Mrs. Clinton or Monica’s boyfriend.

* My kids like to stay awake all night. They should sleep at night.

* We all need more sleep around here. And exercise. And vegetables. Other than that, we’re good. (Our new babysitter: “Don’t offer anything but fruit and vegetables. They’ll eat them, eventually. Believe me.” Me: Why are babysitters always so damn smart?)

* I’ve met about fifteen awesome new women lately, including the eleven I played bunco with on Friday. I do not have extra time to spend with any of them. Not even for coffee dates. This bums me out.

* The Interstate Farmers Market opens tomorrow. “The Underscore Orkestra, playing a mix of Klezmer, Balkan, Gypsy Jazz and Swing Music” will “set the mood for a fun and yummy summer!” Well, alrighty then! If you live in the neighborhood, go for me, would you? I have four meetings.

* Four. And none of them start ’til 5 p.m. That’s about three too many. No, it’s about four too many.

* That’s just my opinion. You? Happy Tuesday, y’all.

    Everytime those Erickson ads come on I scream at the TV. But this new story? I think Mannix’s direct mail stinks. What an ass!

    I like shovel-worthy. I’m going to adopt that one round here. As for spammers, I am so very sick of them. Yet SOMEONE must respond, no?, because otherwise why keep sending them? But Who On Earth would respond to such junk? It’s keeping me up at night…please address.
    And don’t talk to me about too busy to keep up with friends. That is my life. That is my kids’ schooling for the year. Pray we finish in time.

    Mike Erickson scares me. Whemever I see him I think, white supremacist. When he says stuff about securing our borders, I would get chills. Now I know why.

    Shovel-Worthy – LOVE IT. I heard another one yesterday – two guys were talking about an old car and one asks the other how it looked. His reply “It was a 20 footer” The other guy looks confused – so he explains “It looks good from 20 feet away.” Classic.

    The way I understand spam is that it is incredibly cheap — basically free, in fact, by stealing services from unsecured relay points — to send out hundreds of millions of e-mail messages. Some large percentage never make it to an inbox, and another large portion is immediately discarded.

    But if even the tiniest fraction is viewed, and if even the tiniest fraction of that tiniest fraction gets a response, the spammer has made a return on his investment.

    It’s truly a scourge. I’m not sure what the figures are, but I believe a majority of the e-mail packets zipping around the Internet are spam.
