Good Things Are Happening

I’m sitting here (in my snazzy new black and white 3/4 sleeve baseball T-shirt) watching the first baseball game of the regular season: Indians vs. White Sox (Go Tribe). It’s a good day. A lot of good things have been happening. Well, a lot of things in general have been happening. So here’s where I talk about those things.

First off, Joel and Leslie got married last Friday. The wedding was wonderful, and the reception was a lot of fun. Dave and I remarked that the reception kinda was like a Gospelcom reunion from 3-5 years ago. It was great to see people like Peter and Alan there, along with other good friends I’ve not seen in a long time… the list could get very long, so I’m just going to say it was great to see everyone, and hang out with them before, during, and after the wedding (Founders was very fun). So congratulations Joel and Leslie, have fun on your honeymoon, and Joel, I hope you didn’t save all your IM logs.

For those of you that didn’t know, if you spill liquids on your keyboard, You can probably clean it by taking it apart, and putting the plastic parts in the dishwasher. If you’re lucky, the keys will all be attached, and you won’t have to remove and replace each one individually… unless you have a Mac.

April Fools Day is an interesting day. But if you rely on the Internet for most of your information, then April Fools Day is one of the most annoying days of the year. It had become more and more common for every information site on the Internet to include at least one, if not many, many stories that are completely made up. Now, a joke is one thing. I like the April Fools stuff that Google does. They are harmless, and kinda clever, and don’t get in the way of what you are seeking to do. But other sites (I’m looking at you video game sites) fill their sites with so much false information (and most of it is just so very lame that it’s neither funny nor clever) that it’s no longer worth it to even read the site for that day. I was happy that April 1 was a Saturday, because when it’s a weekday, it is really, really annoying. So in short, “Please stop”. It’s no longer funny, it’s just annoying. Especially in the video game/Internet area, there’s already so much stuff that’s made up and fake, we don’t need you, the “truth tellers”, purposely making up stuff too.

Fantastic, it’s been 2.3 innings, and the Indians best pitcher is hurt. Baseball!

Homerun! 3-3!

Rain.. boo

Game on! (it’s 12:15)

Jim Thome is good

Anyway, in closing: Things are good!

  1. Yes, all of the Joel and Leslie festivities were quite fun. They should do this again sometime.

    April Fool’s day “jokes”: horrid. I fail to understand why sites that claim to be “news” sites would do this. It totally undermines everything they do, and um, it’s not even remotely funny. Google does a decent job at this every year ( see Google romance this year, and Google pigeon messaging ), but that only elicits mild amusement.

    Oh well.


  2. slashdot, which i have been frequenting less and less, is the worst of all. The slashdot nerds have the worst senses of humor ever, and none of it is ever funny.

    Comedy Cancer!

  3. I remember All Things Considered doing a fake story on April 1 years ago, and I think it’s been a tradition there for a long time. I’d say I’m not against the notion, but certainly I’m against its proliferation among people of insufficient imagination and wit.

    Unrelated: does frequenting admit of quantities, or does one just visit less and less until the mysterious moment when one can no longer be said to frequent?
