Google Personal Homepage

Maybe this has been out for awhile, but I kind of forgot about the site, which I can explain but whatever. Anyways, the Google personal homepage now has several additions for content, best of all it now takes RSS feeds - so the possibilities are pretty much limitless!!

Cooks of Crocus Hill

I got to enjoy Cooks of Crocus Hill with my new co-workers the other night. I had been the Grand Ave location before but left pretty quickly after realizing how expensive some of their cookery could be. But it turns out their real attraction is the kitchen upstairs. We all got together around the kitchen and made a lovely selection of French comfort foods. I made some salmon - but the chocolate souffle was the real hit. Damn, that was good (and not good for you - ouch!)

Not that I like marketing jokes, butThe Joy of Tech! puts a humorous slant on Windows' new name.


Dear President Bush,

Thank you for doing so much to educate people regarding God's law. I have learned a great deal from you and try to share that knowledge with as many people as I can. When someone tries to defend the homosexual lifestyle, for example, I simply remind them that Leviticus 18:22 clearly states it to be an abomination. End of debate. I do need some advice from you, however, regarding some other elements of God's Laws and how to follow them:

1. Leviticus 25:44 states that I may possess slaves, both male and female, provided they are purchased from neighboring nations. A friend of mine claims that this applies to Mexicans, but not to Canadians. Can you clarify? Why can't I own Canadians?

2. I would like to sell my daughter into slavery, as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7. In this day and age, what do you think would be a fair price for her?

3. I know that I am allowed no contact with a woman while she is in her period of menstrual uncleanliness (Lev. 15:19-24). The problem is, how do I tell? I have tried asking, but most women take offense.

4. When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, I know it creates a pleasing odor for the Lord (Lev. 1:9). The problem is my neighbors. They claim the odor is not pleasing to them. Should I smite them?

5. I have a neighbor who insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2 clearly states that he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself, or should I ask the police to do it?

6. A friend of mine feels that, even though eating shellfish is an abomination (Lev. 11:10), it is a lesser abomination than homosexuality. I don't agree. Can you settle this? Are there "degrees" of abomination?

7. Lev. 21:20 states that I may not approach the altar of God if I have a defect in my sight. I have to admit that I wear reading glasses. Does my vision have to be 20/20, or is there some wiggle-room here?

8. Most of my male friends get their hair trimmed, including the hair around their temples, even though this is expressly forbidden by Lev. 19:27. How should they die?

9. I know from Lev. 11:6-8 that touching the skin of a dead pig makes me unclean, but may I still play football if I wear gloves?

10. My uncle has a farm. He violates Lev. 19:19 by planting two different crops in the same field, as does his wife by wearing garments made of two different kinds of thread (cotton/polyester blend). He also tends to curse and blaspheme a lot. Is it really necessary that we go to all the trouble of getting the whole town together to stone them (Lev. 24:10-16)? Couldn't we just burn them to death at a private family affair, like we do with people who sleep with their in-laws (Lev. 20:14)?

I know you have studied these things extensively and thus enjoy considerable expertise in such matters, so I am confident you can help.

(Thanks Renada for the email.)


Eleventh Avenue South: Myspace.com Bought By Evil Corporation

Eleventh Avenue South has a good idea, join the Faux News MySpace Group in "protest" of Murdoch's purchase of the website - or ofcourse you can close your account...

Friendster pretty much sucks - Orkut?!

Spin Machine activating Prime Time

Seems we get the pleasure of Bush announcing his candidate for the Supreme Court tonight during Prime Time. At first I thought such an announcement was a little odd - especially since the candidate may not actually get appointed. Oh yeah, and then I realized all the media will start talking about that instead of firing the crimincal Karl Rove. Nice one!

Home for lunch

Being able to go for lunch is awesome - and kitty absolutely loves it. And its cheaper than going out!


Queer as Folk

I just cried a good little cry in tonight's episode of QaF. Michael better make it through this thing - he's too cute!!

I've been busy

Ok, I'm finally feeling like writing again - just kind of a mental block and certainly not a lack of things to share. I ended my job almost two weeks ago, went on a fabulous trip to Toronto taking in the sites and enjoying a bit of the Pride festivities there. While on a layover in Chicago we heard the great news from Canada providing equal rights for all citizens - truly the "land of the free." (Made me a bit sad to be leaving.) Then just about 6 hours after getting back home, started at my new job. It was a bit embarassing yawning most of the day in front of my new employers and co-workers, but its been smooth sailing since. I'm starting to do all sorts of cool design projects, etc with a few deadlines already this week. Its nice to be in meetings with executives and feel like I not only belong but really contribute. I need to start pushing myself and getting my talents out there for people to notice. I am going to miss not having a website to manage anymore - but I'm cranking the old gear shafts and maybe I'll come up with something fruitful.

We also got a new camera, the Nikon Coolpix S1 - loving it! So after this post, I'll get the Toronto pics cleaned up and posted to .Mac and start sharing some more pics.

Ok, and why the hell is gas getting so expensive?! The cheapest within 5 miles of my home is $2.04 - but I saw 2.16 plus all day today.

Sandra Day O'Connor - what a curve ball! Fuck! We did not need that happening right now, and you know Rehnquist won't be far behind. Kind of makes me all warm inside to know I'll be moving to Canada.
