And I thought I was uncool

Oh yeahhhh, cruisin' along in my luxe ride after a classy night on the town.

Low and slow, just enjoying the admiring eyes.


Honda just launched their "Shining Prestige" campaign to showcase their 08 linup of....minivans.

Amazing thing, these timezones. Not only is Australia entering summer whilst the US is getting its sweaters out, minivans go from Juice Boxes to Boom Boxes in the span of 13 timezones.

Jurassic This!

Now if this ain't the coolest thing ever! I'm definitely gonna go. Oh yeah, I guess I should bring the kids too.

That Explains Things!

Yesterday, I attended a session delivered by Andy Sernovitz, author of "Word of Mouth Marketing."

He said, "Blogs...are a cry for attention."

Hmm...never though of it that way. He's right! LOOK AT ME! OVER HERE! ME ME ME ME.

Feel much better now, thanks for asking.

PC-Mac interoperability

I saw a few people, including The Man, buy themselves a Mac for work use. Man those things are slick! Nothing says Silver is the New Black like snapping open that smooth clamshell whilst your colleagues creak open their black, diesel-powered ThinkPads. Should I make the jump too? Well, besides the obvious $ issue -- if I'm asking you if you have 17 cents at lunch so I don't need to break a $5 bill, you can guess the status of my bountiful finances. But consider too the technical difficulties! The Man spent all weekend configuring his machine to work with the PC environ at the office. And it still doesn't work. Though I have to tell ya, listening to Mac owners gripe about interoperability, it sounds a bit like subtle bragging. Kind of along the lines, of, Boy I hate it when my Gulfstream needs its engines repaired JUST when I'm about to spend a weekend in my private ski resort.

Then I got to thinking. Why do I want a Mac? Or an iPhone (goosebumps). It's not the function, which the PC can arguably give you. It's the cachet! It puts you on the geek-cool pedastal in a meeting! The iPhone makes me look happ-o-nen in the eyes of my adoring children. THAT's why I crave these symbols of Cool Credo. So here's my question:

Where can I just buy the shell of a Mac or a snap-on faceplate to my clunky cellphone, so it looks like the real thing? I'd snap it up in a heartbeat. Provided, of course, that you could loan me 17 cents so I don't have to break a $5 bill.

Finally saw "300" the other night. Now THAT was inspiring. Seeing all those limbs go flying, I will certainly heed the amusement park warnings to keep my hands and feet inside the vehicle at all times.

And the quotes! Awesome! Take this one by Spartan King Leonidas: "Spartans! Enjoy your breakfast, for tonight...we dine in Hell!"

I can't wait to subtly slip that in at work. "Enjoy the budget allocations! For tonight...we type in Hell!"

Whooo lives in a pineapple under the seaaa...

Ah Labor Day weekend...Perfect, cool, sparse-crowd days to get one's amusement park kicks in. Our 7 yr old and 5 yr old had a blast...

I dunno if I'm just getting old and my sense of balance isn't what it used to be, but boy this Spongebob Squarepants Family Fun Ride screwed me up pretty good.

Those churritoes were so good, had to taste 'em twice.
