The Big DumpTruck

Throwing Little Thought Pebbles at Your Windshield Since 1996

Month: October, 2001

Day three of the <anthrax, cold and I found out something important last night. See, I have a small spray bottle of decongestant, you know, like Afrin, that I only use in dire emergencies, because, well, grandma was hooked on the stuff and I don’t need that monkey on my back.

Anyway, I took some last night. And it did just the WORST job of keeping my nose functional. After inspecting the bottle this morning, I realize that when something expires in 1999, you should just toss it out. *sigh*

I get to start writing my NaNoWriMo! novel tomorrow! I have NO idea how I’ll make this happen. And I also realized my company Christmas party is November 30th, meaning I can’t even stay up until midnight cranking out words on the last day! Well, I could, but they might not invite me back next year.

I have to assume hits to the main Dump page are going to be down significantly after today. The number one reason my hits were so high in October is that Google attached me to the search phrase “Spongebob Squarepants Costume” just because I had talked about it in two different issues. Uh oh. Now it’s written again. More hits next year.

I’m going to miss all the traffic. I don’t know that I’ll have anything that popular for Thanksgiving. Maybe I should write the words “Funny Thanksgiving Poem” and see if that makes it out to the search engines.

Oh no! Mookie thinks Moe is funny! This doesn’t bode well for my future.

I don’t care what anyone says, Shemp is my least favorite Stooge. (And why does it seem so WRONG to me that they show the 3 Stooges on AMC?)

I am NOT turning on the webcam until after this cold passes. I have great fear that I look as bad as I feel.

Okay, I am feeling a little better, but I have a whole nose thing going on and saline spray is not making the white hot poker feeling go away. So the web cam isn’t going on. Maybe tomorrow, when it’s okay to look bad. I’m thinking a little black lipstick and I’m all that and a bag of candy.

Was over at Ground Zero Cam and I’m stunned every time I see the volume of stuff that has to be picked through and removed. Unbelievable. Maybe I’ll use this to keep myself angry, so I can remember why we are at war.

Christmas is sneaking up on is. Less than 2 months to decide what you’re going to buy me from my Amazon.com Wish List. No pressure. The low end items are just as cool as the Elph digital camera, although I do share my love based on how much you spend on me.

Or something like that.

MMmm. One bowl of Progresso homestyle chicken soup (with the little pearl pasta and carrots) and I’m ready for my nap! Yes, now I’m home from work, exhausted. The soup was just the thing. I don’t even care if people are now official anit-progresso just because of their stupid ad campaign. There are still a couple of flavors of soup that just make me happy.

I poked around on Amazon.com this morning to learn more about the new Smash Mouth cd which is due out in 2 weeks or so. Of course, they don’t even have a picture of the cover art or a song list. Seems odd, considering the thing should be, well, done by now. Two weeks is only two weeks. I’d think the cover art should be available.

Smash Mouth has the distinction of being the one group my step-daughter and I both really like. Usually she’s listening to *N Sync or Backstreet Boys or Aaron Carter. Eegah.
