Facebook

Wednesday, January 28th, 2009

Another birthday has come and passed.  As I get older, each birthday becomes more and more the same.  Except this year.

With the ever increasing popularity of Facebook, the hurdles of staying in touch with people has become less cumbersome.  As evidenced by exhibit A (below), there were around 17 birthday wishes that popped up on my Facebook profile.  That’s close to 16 more birthday wishes than in any given year prior.  Suddenly, with these “social” sites such as Facebook, I can feel what it’s like to be a popular fat kid…well, at least electronically popular.  No wonder why so many kids/adults spend hours in front of their computers…They seek “real” human interaction.

Birthday Wishes

Anyway, thanks for all those (whether via Facebook, email, phone, text, etc.) who wished me a happy birthday.  You’ll get your comeupppance soon…

Double whammy!

Happy Birthday to Frank and Happy New Year to everyone! I think Frank just got two years older according to my logic =)

Ok… Here is my very first posting. I’m not a writer, not so good with words (and that’s why I studied math!), but Frank doesn’t want to be the only one writing on our blog and is starting to take it personally!

Thanks to Frank for getting our website up and running – We can finally share the photos we’ve taken with our friends and family. Hope these pix trigger good memories to others as much as they do to us. We have traveled quite a bit over the last three and a half years but there is still so much left to see and not enough time…. My plan is to get a nice world globe for the living room and pick out the next destination… maybe by random spinning and pointing : )

Drunk

Friday, January 9th, 2009

adj.

1.  Intoxicated with alcoholic liquor to the point of impairment of physical and mental faculties.

2.  Caused or influenced by intoxication.

 

Celebrities are always in the news.  Yes, a bold statement.  But for some reason, the reports news agencies love to publish are celebrities and DUIs.

“<Insert any A-D list actor/actress> legally drunk when pulled over.”

Now that’s an amusing statement.  ”Legally drunk”…

Suppose you’re driving down the road, next thing you know you have bright red and blue lights flashing in your rearview.  Like a healthy, imbibing citizen, you cautiously pull your car over to the shoulder.  The officer comes to your passenger side window and asks, ”Have you been drinking tonight?”

“Only but a little,” you reply.  But of course he makes you step out of the car, runs through a series of tests, makes you breath into an apparatus, which in turn spits out a number. 

…intoxicated with alcoholic liquor… 

(this is what I think should follow):

  • Less than 0.08:  legally drunk.  (Woohoo!!)
  • 0.08 or greater:  illegally drunk.  (D’oh!!) 

All in interpretation…
