Is it just me?

Or does the phrase “free pay-per-view movies” sound like an oxymoron?

And if you did actually look at my company’s homepage, you’d already know we’re not interested in selling advertising space to you, seeing as THERE AREN’T ANY ADS ON OUR HOMEPAGE.

Oh, before I forget, you can tell your buddies I’m perfectly happy with the size of my penis, and so is my wife; I live in an apartment, so I don’t need to refinance my mortgage; I have no interest in seeing horses getting it on with teen farm girls; and while I may deserve the house of my dreams, I’ll probably talk to a reputable realtor in my area about that when I’m ready to start looking.

Thank you for your time.

Continuing Education

I’ve been toying with the idea of taking some classes at the local JC recently. Mostly just for the hell of it as opposed to working towards a degree.

Okay, “for the hell of it” isn’t quite right. Perhaps “because I want to learn something new” is more accurate.

Anyway, we got a Summer/Fall course catalog from Chabot College in the mail last week. I think I’m going to take one of the evening photography courses starting in August. I may try to take a comp-sci class as well, but I didn’t see anything that interested me that I know I can fit in around my work schedule. Perhaps I should discuss that with my employer…

I’m not going to be a full-time student, but I will be learning something new, and that is a good thing. 🙂

The Rock Bottom Remainders

Jenny and I went with a friend of ours to see The Rock Bottom Remainders at the Fillmore last night.

(Looks like they need to buy more bandwith – here’s another site with some info.)

For those that don’t know, the Rock Bottom Remainders a band comprised (mostly) of notable authors like Amy Tan, Stephen King, Dave Barry and others. Jenny is a big Dave Barry fan, which is the main reason we went. The exact group composition varies from show to show. (For example: Stephen King did not perform last night.)

Barry claims that they suck, and has no idea why anyone would actually want to hear him and his literary cohorts play, but they really weren’t that bad. (Due, in large part, to Roger McGuinn, who is along for the ride for this tour, and “actually plays IN TUNE“)

Jenny got an autographed copy of “Tricky Business“, while I purchased a RBR hat and CD.

A couple of my favorite highlights from the show:

  • Robin Williams as a “suprise guest” to open for the band.
  • Amy Tan in a cross between a biker and a dominatrix outfit singing “These Boots Were Made for Walking”.

Last night was fun, I’m glad we went.

Edit: At least I’m consistent in my inability to spell “Barry” correctly
