Destroying the Universe and Taco Bell
Playing on iTunes: "Bagman's Gambit" by The Decembrists
Hark, what is that I hear? iTunes? It is! It is! That must mean I have my computer back!! :) That's right ladies and gentlemen...I have my computer back and it officially stays on longer than 10 seconds at a time. *sigh* sweet technology.
Alright...I have a question. I was at Taco Bell this evening, which never tastes as good as it sounds...and noticed their new dollar menu. It's called "Why Pay More!". This sign drives me nuts, as it's seems like they should be asking me a question instead of shouting at me! Why doesn't it say "Why Pay More?". Am I not understanding the punctuation? Are they really correct and I'm just a confused English major? I just don't see how this is not a question....and it kind of drives me nuts. THEY HAVE IT PLASTERED EVERYWHERE!!!!!
Alright...that is enough of the Bell. But if you have any answers...please share. I don't know if I am going to be able to sleep tonight. (And no...it isn't the beans.)
Since I have my computer back....I am going to finish my book! :) I am going to write a bit tonight (after this debate is over) and all day tomorrow. My computer WILL remain working, and I WILL start editing next week. EXCITEMENT ABOUND!!!
Oh! Not related to writing....I hate the people who invented the game "Spore" primarily because it does not work with the Powerbook G4's. Bastards. I was really looking forward to raising a cute alien and then destroying the universe. Damn.
This really was a depressing post. I think it's the politics on the tv. It doesn't depress me, it just changes the tone of my thoughts.
Oh!! I voted this week!! I won't get into politics...but I voted for Obama. If you want reasons...too bad. I have them (good one's too...not just Sarah Palin's SNL spoof's) and they are mine. I voted in person with a absentee ballot (I'm going to be in CA for the election). It was fun.
That is all.
