I smell divine justice...

I had spagetti and meatballs for dinner. On Ash Wednesday. A Catholic no-meat holiday.

And then I threw it all up.

Forgive me, oh Lord, for I have sinned.

Here we go with a new segment on Eaglie's Aviary:

When there is trouble, he is there. When the helpless need help, he is there. When technology rides your ass holding a flaming hot poker, don't worry, he's there. He is:

Prepared to face anything.

Ep. 00110001: The Old CD-ROM

"Oh no! The CD-ROM drive looks busted! It won't open! Nothing will work! Will no one save us?!"

Andy the Tech Guy then swoops in. He lends Eaglie a helping hand to fix the CD-ROM drive.

Andy gives the drive a whirl.

"There seems to be a problem with the drive opening. It keeps making this 'splurt' noise, like a small rodent just got ground up in there. That could pose a problem."

"Yes, well, just fix it. I need to do some blog updating. It's been a while."

"I don't know what I can do except... well... 'technician-ey' stuff."

A few minutes later...

The greatest friend of any computer technician is an unraveled paperclip.

"We shall see."

Andy jimmies the drive a bit.

An hour of poking later...

The drive comes open!

Andy has opened the drive successfully!

Andy heroically yawps, informing all within a one-block radius he is successful

So Andy saves the day. Nevermind that the drive now requires paperclip opening everytime it's used and that it can't read CDs anymore. Andy has done something right!

Speaking of which, Happy Valentine's Day Massacre in advance! I won't be posting about it this year. And I won't be cuddling with anyone either. I'll be devising some evil, ungodly plans off in at a Kairos retreat.

But, since I don't have anything good to post for now:

Here's a Lucky Charms Sex Quiz!

Everyone, enjoy yourselves! I hope y'all find a li'l lovin' (or sugar), and don't be depressed if you can't: the only women in my life share an X chromosome with me (explanation for those who are lost or thinking dirty: those women would be my MOM and my SISTER).

As always, a busy day equals less fun stuff on the blog. But it means better stuff a bit laaaater!

I must add something else on about livejournal. The default templates look like shit no matter what color it is. And fucking with HTML coding is usually more effort than it's worth.

Those who prefer the journalistic style, please, choose LJ. That's what the template is built for, journaling and talking about feelings. The stuff I write isn't even meant for a blog, let alone a livejournal.

The Aviary's current home does need sprucing up though. I'll get to work on it eventually. This gets put into the good ol' "To Do" pile, along with my blogging ring, my movie, and my water-powered replacement to the internal combustion engine.

And, to John, Paul, George, and Ringo... Keep singing, 'cause, well, she was just seventeen, you know what I mean, and the way she looked was way beyond compare:

So how could I dance with another,
And I saw her standin' there.

Well she looked at me, and I, I could see
That before too long I'd fall in love with her.
She wouldn't dance with another
And I saw her standin' there.

Since I saw her standing there...
Since I saw her standing there...

Well, my heart went "boom,"
When I crossed that room,
And I held her hand in mine...

Oh, we danced through the night,
And we held each other tight,
And before too long I fell in love with her.
Now I'll never dance with another
Since I saw her standing there

Since I saw her standing there...
Since I saw her standing there...

Do not worry, faithful. Livejournal will never take me. Really. Even if I begged, that unfortunate "incident" last year will keep them from accepting me. If I ever pay for that line of third-floor windows, then maybe...

Hasn't it been nice to see a different Jackson in the news?

And, by the way, I am afraid for Hollywood. I am afraid for America. I am afraid of the fact that Vin Diesel turned down the role: XXX: State of the Union

After taking an extra day... and missing the Super Bowl... I have decided to skip a review of the Super Bowl commercials, at least until I find a tape of the game/ads.

But, here's the great thing: It's everyone's favorite holiday! It's more holy than Yom Kippur, Lent, and Ramadan combined! It's less comercialized every other holiday, barring Casmir Pulaski Day! It's got more furry rodents than Easter or Valentine's Day! And only New Year's and St. Patrick's Day beat it in total alcohol consumption, and that's because those are universally celebrated by the Irish! So...

Loveshack, baaaabyyyy...

And, of course...

Who says I ain't a groundhog?!

Have a safe, sincere Groundhogs' Day, readers.
