Yeah, Yeah, Yeah. I know. Trust Me.

Someone commented to me that I was really letting the California trip post carry the week. And yeah, that might be true, but seriously? Retarded children? If that can't carry a week, then I don't know what can. Possibly the "Dead Babies are Funnier" post I have saved as a draft that will never see the light of day, because it's a bit depraved, even for me. Maybe someday...sigh...maybe someday.

You know you've really become a slave to technology (read: an utterly lazy bastard) when you find a sweet link that you really want to share with someone, but don't, because they aren't signed into Messenger or AIM. Opening your email account, signing in, and composing an email to share the link has become far too much work. It used to be that emailing was the shortcut in lieu of making a phone call. Now making a phone call is just completely archaic, and emailing is becoming a pain. I'll either text message you, or send you an IM. Any communication outside of that is just asking way too much. And yes, you grammar Nazis, I did just use "email" as a verb. Twice.

There's something about us midwesterners and our fascination with California...I spent a bunch of time out there when I was in college and still look back on it as the greatest place in the world.

So would you e-mail the banished post?

Funny, I just wrote an English paper on this subject(communications, not dead babies) and I got nailed for using not only "email" as a verb but "text message" as well. Hope you had a nice weekend!

I'm never the first to post here!! It said "0 comments" then I open the post a comment window and 2 comments already. I hate being the 20th commentor, nobody reads anything after the 10th anyway. Aw crap, now I don't even remember what I was going to say. Oh well, I'll keep trying.

In the time it took me to post my comment somebody else commented. It's a conspiracy, damn government trying to stiffle my free speech.

Haha, NJ, fear not. I eat my comments for breakfast, so the more the better. In fact, I get clinically depressed if there is less than 20. I always read every one!

If you can't make fun of drooling little mongoloid children -- what's this world coming to?

Dead babies are funnier.

I guess I'll say something to get you half way to your RDA of comments. Even growing up in Cali, I forgot how awesome it is until I went back over the summer. Definitely have to consider moving back.
