Lyrics Are Not An Away Message!

No, really, that seriously bugs me. I have no idea why, but I am just strangely annoyed by people leaving lyrics for their away message. I mean, it’s an AWAY message, you’re supposed to put where you’re AWAY to. I guess if you’re listening to the song thats lyrics you posted, that would be ok. Also, a certain person who hasn’t read the blog in like 6 months has a habit of leaving horribly mushy sappy messages to her boyfriend, which outright pisses me off. So there, I said it, OK?

Anyway, I am bored now. I did all my homework. I still have tomorrow’s Network Essentials to do, but I have next weeks HTML and tomorrows JS all done. I don’t really feel like doing NE though, so I am blogging instead. Too bad nobody is online to talk with.

I think my plan of a new poll every 3rd blog is a bit too long. Since everyone seems to vote the first day it’s up, I could really change every blog. But no, I am too lazy, so I will go to every second blog. Thats a nice mix of long enough for everyone to vote, supporting my laziness, and yet not so long it just sits uselessly. So expect a new poll on Saturday (Scott already knows what it will be).

Nobody commented on having oddities, so either you have no idea what I am talking about, or Scott and Sarah are the only two experiencing it. I guess there is a strange phenomenon where there is a large white space on the sidebar, above the calendar. Scrolling down so the area is out of view seems to fix it, but if you refresh it comes back. If I have it wrong perhaps Scott will be nice enough to correct me in a comment?

Also, please use the poll and comments, really. Don’t feel like you don’t know me well enough to comment or something. Don’t be shy, tell me what you think, please. If some freakoid can leave one asking for a ser*al to S*m C*ty 4, then all you that I gave the address of my blog to can most definitely comment. And remember, I know you were here from the counter, so don’t pull any “but I haven’t been there” crap (you know who you are).

Wow, that sounded kinda harsh. I just want you people to give me your feedback though, I need it, I need reassurance that I’m not wasting my time on all this. I do it all for my peeps man, cause I love you guys 😥


I am jealous of Erica now. She has posted to her LiveJournal for 10 days in a row, has 197 posts, and will have her 1 year anniversary on April 21st. That means 1 year a full month before me, and has 90 or so more posts. Still, I am WAY more regular than Ms. “no posts for over a week”, so thats something.

Yeah, I am bored as hell.

Today is the last official day of the Pepsi/iTunes giveaway. The question is how long will it take to sell off all the yellow capped bottles. If any of you have some, and don’t want them, I would be happy to take them from you 🙂

Wow, 2 emoticons in one blog. That’s especially wowwing because I have never used even one before, except once in a title. Hmm… emoticons… Why only faces? Why not -> <- <-> @}-‘-,– and others?

And speaking of which, do you use -> or ~>? I used to use ->, but have switch over. For some reason I think it looks better.

Yeah, definitely bored.

Why is nobody good online?

You people need to quit school and hang out with me, it would be way more fun.

Oh, new Apple rumor… Mac OS 10.4 will be (drum roll) “Tiger”. Following 10.2 “Jaguar” and 10.3 “Panther”, of course. Problem is that it is an unconfirmed rumor. We know Apple will go with a cat, but has TMs on Tiger, Lynx, and some others, so who knows. Trouble here really being that 1 site reported the rumor, and with nothing better going around everyone else just jumped on it. If a confirmation comes in, then cool, if not, then we will just need to wait for WWDC.

You know, this is one of my longest blogs. I mean, it’s really freaking long. I am going to regret this when I need to do the Abstract.

Cassie has been sickish again. I think a lot of people are really. The weather getting warm screws with allergies and stuff. I am lucky, I seem to have gotten over like 99% of my allergies. They still come on sometimes, but nothing like they used to. Five years ago I would be miserable, and ten I would be considering suicide by now. I guess getting shots in the arm for all that time did the trick. “Good little immune system, good boy…”

Uhm, yeah…

I figure I should also mention that I only update every 3 days, for the few that seem to check every 6 hours for an update. That might change in a while (at the anniversary, it has been considered) but for now it is only on every 3rd day. I’m not saying don’t come, just trying to save you some time. Although, I will admit I check other peoples blogs way to often too, and will even check Crazy Apple Rumors 2 or 3 times a day, knowing full well its a once a day thing.


Ok, that’s it. I can’t really think of anymore.

See you on Saturday with a new blog and new poll.

    you are right… except it doesnt do it much anymore… Since you told me you changed some script (or something like that)

  2. Erica says:

    Hey dude, I missed today in my post…So I think 10 is my record…I’m better than some of my friends though, sometimes they don’t update for weeks…Oh yeah, and I like my lyrics as away messages (neener), but I normally only use ones that describe how I am feeling at that exact moment, not just random songs thrown out there…
