Water of the month


Maybe it's just me, but isn't it the same stuff? I have been drinking municipal water in New York and Chicago practically all my life. I also drink it pretty much everywhere else in the U.S., Canada, U.K. (although that can get kind of funky), and Japan. Water is water.

Yet this exists :

The source for "fine waters"? What does that mean?!?! The world around me has gotten quite confusing. They even have a water of the month club!!

Guitar Hero dropout!

This kid is going places!! Read up on Blake Peebles who at 16 is dropping out of school to focus on playing Guitar Hero!!!!!

From the article : "It's a small plastic thing, resembling a guitar in basic appearance only.

But Blake Peebles brings energy to the room when he slides the strap over his skinny shoulder and steps atop the wooden box that serves as a stage.

As the music begins, Blake quickly presses buttons on the guitar in time to a speed-metal tune blasting from the giant TV. It is an odd sensation, to watch a young man control the sounds of a rock song with a toy instrument, but this is "Guitar Hero," one of the most popular video game franchises in recent memory. Blake is one of the better players in the country."...(read more)

Way too long (that's what she said...)

It's been one month and one day since I last wrote anything on here. I've been busy, and I'm sure you all don't want to read about the goings on in Regina, Saskatchewan or Butte, Montana. I can assure you that you don't want to hear about tent destruction due to steady 30 MPH winds, gravel parking lots, intermittent-net, drinking beers at 10am while playing scrabble in 95 degree heat, or how many baby wipes it takes to properly bathe an (overweight) adult human body.

Six more days and I can get back to writing normally, checking the internet for things that annoy me and videos that I can't stop watching.

In the meantime read Stuff Black People Hate because it's awesome, and it's only got a few more weeks of existence.

I apologize for the delay. I apologize to all 12 of you.
