Today’s quotes:

  • “You don’t want to go in and get your sperm right off the rack. You want designer sperm.” — Kristi Lee on sperm banks (The Bob & Tom Show)
  • “Oral sex and regular sex are not the same. That’s why they’ve got different prices.” — Keith Alberstadt
  • ” When a dog humps your leg, it’s kind of an insult. Because out of everyone at the party, he looks at you and thinks ‘I think I’ve got a shot with that guy’.” — Larry the Cable Guy
  • “I don’t know why people video tape sex because after I have sex, the only thing I can think of is that I’m glad nobody saw that.” — Mike Birbiglia
  • “I like to think of my body as a temple… or at least a nice Presbyterian youth center.” — Emo Phillips

Hey, there’s a half gallon of vanilla ice cream in my freezer, which I have successfully resisted for at least a week and a half. I’m not sure why I’ve resisted it or why my resistance seems so significant. Maybe there’s some deeper symbolism at work here. She calls out to me in her creamy vanilla voice, tempting me with her cold sweetness. Yet I continue to resist this cold, white temptress. What’s at stake here? What would be the price of surrender?

Or maybe it’s like Freud said, “Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.”

My video card came in today. And I have dual monitors again. Praise the Lord! It took a bit of messing around with it to get it so maximized windows wouldn’t expand across both monitors but I figured it out. It will let me have a different background on each monitor, which is kind of cool. I’m at least partially happy now.

No takers on that other word? I can’t google it since I don’t know he spelling or the definition. I used to know the word and I was able to use it in a sentence. I think I was even able to use what it defined in a sentence. Suffering from chronic CRS sure is a pain in the ass. I guess I’ve forgotten more than a lot of people know.

Buffalo Springfield – For What It’s Worth

Today’s quote:
“If I were two-faced, would I be wearing this one?” — Abraham Lincoln

I figured out why my site wasn’t displaying properly on my computer. It was the freaking firewall. I had to go in and explicitly tell it to allow cookies and turn off all ad blocking for my site. I’m using at least three different versions of Zone Alarm here and this one appears to be the most granular in its controls. Zone Alarm has been the root of all sorts of bizarre problems both at home and at work. It was Zone Alarm that was adding the java script to the source. If you look at the source on a different computer, there is no java script.

I’ve decided that living with only one monitor isn’t going to work out. I found a GeForce MX4000 video card with 128MB and two VGA ports for $55. That should resolve the problem. By the way, it has been very stable since I removed that “old” ATI Rage Pro card. I do mean old; it had © 1998 stamped on it.

My genealogy pages are mostly updated. I still haven’t update the pages for my direct ancestors; that will wait until another night. I added a “news” page to the site to summarize changes and research accomplished since the last update.
