Cue the Crickets
5 Minutes Of Random Thoughts:
Start.The blogs have been awfully quiet lately. In situations like this I usually check three things for fault: pits, teeth, breath. But that's real life. Unless someone has invented (and is testing) smell-o-vision... in which case forgive me, I ran out of after-coffee-mints. There just doesn't seem to be a reason for the lull. Are we on the wrong bandwagon? Is this one running out of gas? Are people getting bored with the internet? I have a problem about getting interested in things long after they've hit their peak. I put my house on the market just as the real estate bubble burst. I usually get into games that are too old to have tech support. I look for clothes they stopped making five years ago. I started adopting the slang, "Sweet!" just as it's was being switched over to, "Tight!" So it wouldn't surprise me. But it does bum me out. I have grown to really care about the people I've met through blogging. I'm not ready for this trend to die out. Maybe we can start a campaign like, "Save the Whales?" Or "Feed the Hungry?" Direct and to the point.... I'm thinking, "Save the Bloggers." And "Read the Blogs." Or maybe more along the lines of, "Save a worker: BLOG." Cause Lord knows my mind would be mushified by now if I didn't have all your blogs to fill my time with. Start.
Simology: A few months ago I bought Sims 2. Of course my first project was to make a virtual Hoop and Tink. Who could resist? In the original Sims game I created a house full of sims that resembled people I disliked. Mostly old roommates. I told them to jump in the pool, and then I removed the ladder so they couldn't get out. They died.
Don't look at me like that. It's just a GAME.
Anyway, last night Tink-sim and Hoop-sim had a baby boy. I've been watching Tink-sim's belly grow for a few days. It really is amazing how far our technology has advanced. They've even got the puking and frequent urges to pee down. And then Tink-sim went into labor. After one minute of strained pushing (don't you wish it was that easy?) out popped a bouncing baby boy.
Do you know where Hoop-sim was during this ordeal? Practicing golf in the living room.
Sweet Dreams: I had a dream last night that I was in charge of filming a carnival for a major news station. One of the main events was seeing who could jump from a tall platform and land on their feet. Another was a wrestling match where people were encouraged to bite and scratch. And then a newscaster came on and announced, "Welcome to the second annual 'Construction Workers Pretending To Be Cats' festival." I remember thinking it all made sense after that.
What's up with the cat dreams? I'm a DOG person. Not that construction workers pretending to be dogs would be any more logical.
Around The Water Cooler:
Tink: So then you go-
New Employee: Uh huh.
Tink: -to the login-
NE: Uh huh.
Tink: -screen and type-
NE: Uh huh.
Tink: Could you please stop that?!
NE: Uh... Uh huh.
