(Miscellaneous Oddball Posts Assembled Recklessly)
This is what it’s like watching a show with my husband.
The scene is a lawyer talking to a home healthcare worker who’s charge is an elderly lady.
Old lady says to lawyer: Your husband is doing a fine job.
Lawyer (whose husband is in jail) nods, smiles, and says: Thank you.
Nurse to lawyer: Don’t mind her, she only remembers the past.
My husband: Unlike the rest of us who only remember the future. (complete with eyerolls)
A while back we watched some show on Nostradamus. One of the commentators was a Nostradamus expert of some sort.
He said something to the effect of: The quatrains of Nostradamus were designed to keep the idiots occupied.
My husband: And we can see that strategy’s been working really well, Mr. “Expert.” (wink wink nudge nudge)
142 That’s how many comments popped into my Google Reader. See, there are a few blogs I read that aren’t on WordPress. They’re on Blogger, or are their own URL, so I subscribe to the comments as well as the posts. I’ve noticed that on one of the comments lists I follow, it sometimes takes up to 4 days for the comments to show up. And last night while I was reading through a few that had come through, all of a sudden 142 comments showed up, some at least a month old. Things that make you go, “WTF?” Stupid Google Reader.
Speaking of Reader, I’m in love with that little “Send to” button. I can – at just a click on that tiny little arrow – send all my Reader wisdom and humor to someplace else. It’s my way of spreading the wealth. *cough* (Knowledge is the ONLY wealth that should be spread, btw) Now, instead of watching my favorite things fall off Reader after the 30 day mark, I can send them to the Blogger blogs I’ve set up to catch the gold.
I can also send things to Twitter and Stumble, and lots of other places. Check out your Reader settings to find out more.
And I have determined that Google is like crack. ‘Nuff said.
