The Chosen One

Hey there. I stole this off of Renna's page. Her blog is the third one from my Blogs of the Month. I thought it was hilarious and I just had to share it. Later.

My Top Spots?

Hey there friends. As I was browsing blogs of my Entrecard regulars, I've noticed that more than a few have this "Top Spots" widget on thier site. I've decided that I'd give it a go as well. My understanding is that if you give me a tip (which I've set at $1.50 even though it says a minumum of $5.00) you can have a link on my site. I read up on the terms and conditions and what not but I was not able to see how long the link would stay up. The only thing that I can remember seeing is if that my links were full and someone decided to tip me to get their link up, the oldest link would fall off being replaced by the new one. Check out the widget on the right side of my site, though I'm sure you've probably seen it on other sites. Later!

For the Over 30 Crowd

Hey there. I'm not quite over the hill yet, lol. I'm still in my 20's, even though I just ventured into the "late" 20's, but I know what this person is talking about. I'm loving the "Just like life!" line. I thought that was hilarious. Enjoy. Later.

If you are 30 or older you will think this is hilarious!!!!

When I was a kid, adults used to bore me to tears
with their tedious diatribes about how hard things were
when they were growing up; what with walking
twenty-five miles to school every morning ... uphill BOTH ways

yadda, yadda, yadda

And I remember promising myself that when I grew up,
there was no way in hell I was going to lay
a bunch of crap like that on kids about how hard I had it
and how easy they've got it!
But now that... I'm over the ripe old age of
thirty, I can't help but look around and notice the youth of

You've got it so easy! I mean, compared to my
childhood, you live in a damn Utopia!
And I hate to say it but you kids today you
don't know how good you've got it!

I mean, when I was a kid we didn't have The
Internet . If we wanted to know something,
we had to go to the damn library and
look it up ourselves, in the card catalog!!
There was no email!! We had to actually write
somebody a letter .with a pen!
Then you had to walk all the way across the street and
put it in the mailbox and it would take like a week to get

There were no MP3's or Napsters! You wanted to
steal music, you had to hitchhike to the damn record store and
shoplift it yourself!
Or you had to wait around all day to tape it off the radio and
The DJ'd usually talk over the beginning and @#*% it all up!
We didn't have fancy crap like Call Waiting! If you
were on the phone and somebody else called they got a busy
signal, that's it!

And we didn't have fancy Caller ID Boxes either!
When the phone rang, you had no idea who it was!
It could be your school, your mom, your boss, your bookie, your
Drug dealer, a collections agent, you just didn't know!!!
You had to pick it up and take your chances, mister!

We didn't have any fancy Sony Playstation video games with
high-resolution 3-D graphics!
We had the Atari 2600!
With games like 'Space Invaders' and 'asteroids'. Your guy was
A little square!
You actually had to use your imagination!! And there were no
Multiple levels or screens, it was just one screen forever!

And you could never win.
The game just kept getting harder and harder and faster and
faster until you died!
Just like LIFE!

When you went to the movie theater there no such thing as
Stadium seating!
All the seats were the same height!
If a tall guy or some old broad with a hat sat in front of you
And you couldn't see, you were just screwed!

Sure, we had cable television, but back then that
was only like 15 channels
and there was no on screen menu and no remote control!
You had to use a little book called a TV Guide to find out what
Was on!
You were screwed when it came to channel surfing!
You had to get off your ass and walk over to the TV to change
The channel and there was no Cartoon Network either! You could only
Get cartoons on Saturday Morning. Do you hear what I'm saying!?!
We had to wait ALL WEEK for cartoons, you spoiled little

And we didn't have microwaves, if we wanted to heat
something up we had to use the stove or go build a frigging fire
imagine that!
If we wanted popcorn, we had to use that stupid Jiffy Pop
Thing and shake it over the stove forever like an idiot.

That's exactly what I'm talking about!
You kids today have got it too easy.
You're spoiled.
You guys wouldn't have lasted five minutes back in 1980!

Network Solutions is the way to go

Hey there friends. Now that I am my own boss, I figured that I would integrate some online advertising. I stumbled across this gem of a site, which pretty much has it all: Domains, Hosting, Web Design, among many other services. But the service that caught my attention was the "Pay Per Click Marketing", or ppc advertising. You provide your web address, with a brief description of the site, and their advertising experts create the ads that will be posted on well known search engines such as Google or Yahoo. There are many plans to suit up and coming websites to well established websites. There is a one time set up fee and plan prices will vary depending how many guaranteed clicks you purchased. What's that? Guaranteed? That's right. Network Solutions will guarantee clicks on you ads, increasing traffic and potential customers. On top of that, they have 24 hour customer service reps ready to tackle any questions or concerns. The starter plans are the way to go if you're on a small budget and want great advertising, but for those with a larger budget can fully customize their ad campaigns. You will work directly with their experts to create a campaign that may include anything from local business advertisements to receiving calls from customers directly to your phone. The Pay Per Phone Call advertisements are great for those businesses without a website. Maybe I'll look into this, since I haven't created a site for my business just yet. Check it out, fellow entrepreneurs. Nothing beats great ad locations to generate traffic to your business and it doesn't get any better than Google and Yahoo. Later.

Need Some Computer Repair?

Hey there friends. So I've decided. As of today, I am my own boss! (At least from the hours of 3:45 PM to 7:15 AM lol) I am now a computer repair guy for hire. It dawned on me this weekend. I sat on my ass fixing comps for free and was like, what the hell, I should be getting paid for this, so why not start a lil business on the side. 1 employee, 1 boss, 1 IT guy, 1 Customer service guy, 1 anything guy, and that guy is ME! I just need to iron out the details. Will I be bring the comps home to work on, where I naturally would feel more comfortable, or would I be making house calls? I guess that would depend on the severity of the issue. I don't know, we'll see. I'll put a lot more thought into this but decided I should post, just in case someone needed "a computer guy" to fix a comp. lol Considering that I can't travel overseas or across country (that bill would be monstrous), I will have to refrain from taking any jobs that are not within 25 miles from the Long Beach, CA area. Feel free to Email me. Later!
