So, I'm watching lonelygirl15 on youtube, and it starts to remind me of Olivers movies. And that makes me think of how when I saw those, I wanted to make those. Then I realized I'm not creative enough, plus, no one wants to see me talking about the crap I talk about on here. I'm sure reading about it is plenty. Plus, I would end up doing that thing that all vbloggers do, and play a song, and sing and dance to it. Scary...I know. So there will be no vblogging, I'm sorry.

For the record, lonelygirl15 is WAY old news, I was just watching archives. I know she's an actress, I just wanted to see how realistic this viral marketing campaign really was. For the record...she COULD be a 16 year old blogger, but I would peg her for way older.
I can't believe I'm in a virtual waiting room for Cubs baseball tickets.

Even my grandma's a two-timing hussy
Real conversation I had with my grandmother last night:
Wednesday, February 21, 2007
"I asked your brother to be my Valentine, seeing as how he's single and I'm single. I was going to ask you, but I figured your new girl wouldn't want me horning in"
"I really don't think she would care if my Grandmother asked me to be her Valentine" I responded.
"Oh well then, next time I will call you then, you are my number one Valentine"
"You two-timing hussy! You can't ask Chris to be your valentine, and then tell me I'm secretly your number 1!"
Yep...I called grandma Hunka a two-timing hussy. It's ok, I'm Ben, I get away with this crap all the time. She wasn't offended like she should have been, she just laughed.
We can come to one of two conclusions here a) All women in my life are two timing hussies or b) All women in my life can't help themselves around me, and want to flirt ;)
Now all the girls who read this are like...."Am I a two-timing hussy?"
You wrote about the snow didn't you?
Tell the truth. You live in the midwest, and BOY you just had to blog about the snow today didn't you. Wahh...I can't get my car out of the snow. Yay! I got a day off of work! Boo, it's cold and I'm just going to stay in bed today. What ever it was....you are NOT original, nor are your problems any different than 33% of the country right now.

So, in my big FUCK YOU to the blogosphere, I will not write about snow. I also will NOT write about the exact opposite of snow, and wish for sun and going to the pool with Jenn, and running around the neighborhood. Oh no, I'm gonna go way off topic and talk about VPN. But I'm gonna make it exciting for you non tech savy kids who read this. Basically, from today on...I can work from home if I need to. Like the other day, I was sick and stayed home. When I got back to work, I had a ton of emails and things that needed to get done. It was not a fun time. So I got set up with VPN, and now on really nice days, I will sit on the stoop with a Bass, and work from the comfort of my porch. Oh yes, I can see this being a very good thing. It's ok kids...you can be jealous. "But Hunka, I have to go into work...I have to physically be at my desk! Why are you so special?" And you have just answered your own question...I am special, and therefore...I get good things.
We really have to start looking at things in a different way. Like...why pay for an office building when you can have a ton of virtual offices all over the country. All the people just email around the building anyways...why have infrastructure? It's just an extra expense.
And it doesn't stop there. We need to look at relationships, love, race, gender, everything. Social networks like youtube, and myspace are bringing people together who would never know about each other with out it. It's kinda cool if you think about it.
Free with purchase of a SC used tower!
Ok, so I get this email at Wolfram today, about something going on at SC. Apparently a customer bought a computer, and got home, and installed iTunes. Upon opening the newly installed application, he had it search his freshly re-formatted drive for any audio or video files. What did he find? Gigs of Rap and Porn. Heh. So I get this email "Did you erase the old partition when you prepped the machine?" Bu-wha? Did I erase the partition? Fuck yeah I did. Did you take a return and not re image the Hard Drive? That's TONS more likely.

End of story...I'm not sure I see the downside here. Free rap, and free porn. I guess the guy is bringing it back to have us re-image it. My new question is...did iTunes find internet cache files? Cause if so, its just gonna put them BACK on, PLUS that means someone was whacking off while listening to rap music AT work.
Ed's gonna be SO PISSED.
I'm getting Apple Certified. Sales and Tech. And I'm gonna do it for free. Then....it's off to Chicago to work at the Michigan Ave Store as a tech. Colin, save me a place on your couch till I get on my feet.

I quit art class. I wasn't really into the class, and the teacher kinda gave up on me. I guess this kinda frees up my nights.

I'm going back to Bingo tomorrow. It's been a long time. I don't expect the return to be awesome. In fact I expect to to be quite lame. I hear that Marv has taken to letting other people host rounds. Everyone seems to think this is a cool new thing he's doing. Am I the only one who sees that he's losing steam, doesn't care about the show, and is pawning off work. The man gets PAID to do this (not well, I know, but he does get free drinks and also all the cash from the card sales.) and now he's just showing up and collecting, and letting others do his work.

But, I'm gonna go back, I'm gonna go spend stupid money on booze, dinner, and bingo cards. I will be drunk by 7:30, and sober by 9:30. Well..."sober." Queen B promised to come out, and so I can only imagine that I will be drinking pretty heavily. Of course, this means I will not be doing my homework, for yet another week at class. I'm gonna go write her an email right now that explains WHY I'm in that class, and how grades are not really a motivator for me ;)
