Leaving Friday morning for the bustling metropolis of Le Center, MN to
visit my nephew, his wife, and their boy (2 years 10 months). I'll be
back sometime Monday, and probably won't be blogging between now &
then. Meanwhile, here are some things for you to do while I'm gone:
1) Go answer Tiffany's survey questions
2) Enjoy Starship Exeter.
Considering the non-existent budget they had to work with, this
Original Series Trek style Quicktime movie is actually fairly well
done, and I think it really captures the flavor of the series.
3) Pick a random number and use it in a sentence that says something nice about me.
4) Find me a freakin' troll.
5) If someone forwards you an e-mail warning you about the dangers of the "Budweiser Frogs Screensaver virus", send the dumbass to clueville.
6) Figure out whether you're REALLY an American.
7) Decide whether this man does or does not have his head up his ass about Scotch.
8) This is my coffee mug. There are many like it, but this one is mine. It is beautiful. I love it. I will not drink my coffee out of anything else.
9) Let me know how I can get my hands on some Aerogel. This stuff looks WAY too cool for me not to have any.
10) Go wish you-know-who a Happy Birthday.
Oh, and if you find any links to boobie pictures, just drop them in my comments.
If they're YOUR boobies, just e-mail them to email@example.com.

TODAY'S LOVE NOTE
I could tell the first time you hugged me that we are meant to be. You
hugged me in a way I had never been hugged before and it made me feel
better than ever.

Just wanted to thank you for the thoughtful birthday gift.

KING OF THE BLOGS
FINAL ROUND REVIEWS
This week's challenge question:
You have just walked out of the house when you see a Ninety foot tall
Bunny Rabbit destroying the city (assume you are in a city). As King of
the Blogs what would you do to save the day?
GOOD POINTS: Covers all the bases with various options. Actually, since he gives 5 options, I guess he covered the pitcher's
mound, too. Love the "RABBITS ARE TERRORISTS" picture. I can almost
hear that freak on the left saying "Dude! Rabbits are like, totally
BAD POINTS: He posted a picture of Michael Moore. I'd rather clean a
bag lady's toenails than look at Michael Moore. Also, Bill failed to
blame the Bush administration who was clearly responsible for not
taking action to prevent this atrocity. Bush flopped! Bunnies hopped!
GOOD POINTS: Stands and fights, rather than appeasing. A noble
characteristic in a monarch. Also provides all necessary explanatory
BAD POINTS: Needed to expound a bit on why the Bugs & Daffy
cartoons would lull the rabbit into a false sense of security. I didn't
get that. Basically just had the bad luck of entering a text adventure
against King Bill's splashy Photoshopping.
GOOD POINTS: That picture just tickles me.
BAD POINTS: Two words: explain how.
The Whole Blog: Technical Merit & Personality
Here are some technical things I like to see on a blog:
E-mail contact info available
Blogger's name/pseudonym prominently displayed
Site search feature enabled
Link to an "About Me" post on the sidebar
Blogger's gender is easily discernable
Readable font style & size
Readable color scheme (for example, NOT bright red type on bright green
Divisions between posts clearly marked
Paragraphing in entries (NOT just writing one fat block of text)
Aside from the tech stuff, I also like to see a blogger's personality
shining through, to remind us of the person behind the words.
GOOD POINTS: Oh, yeah, he's got the techie details running smoothly,
and even though he recently suffered a DOS attack, you wouldn't know
any damage was done. The place still looks great.
BAD POINTS: Yellow blockquotes? Freakin' YELLOW? Dear GOD, Bill! This
is NOT Trading Spaces! Yellow is for girls & flouncy interior
decorators. Manly up, would ya?
GOOD POINTS: Technically perfect, and way-spiffy non-yellow
blockquotes. One of these days I'm going to have to steal that code
& see if I can make it work in Radio. Bonus for linking Day By Day.
BAD POINTS: Nothing really bad, exactly, just not quite as fancy as
WalloWorld. Might consider giving up that text header for a spiffy
banner, which you can create here for free.
GOOD POINTS: Clean, white background, thin crisp lines neatly segregating each area. A nicely organized look.
BAD POINTS: Missing the search feature. If your software doesn't have
the option, you can get the code free from Google:
