i have this voice activated light switch in my room. it’s like the clapper, but instead of clapping, it’s voice activated and it is also a dimmer switch.

the way you activate it is by saying “computer”, wait for the beep and then tell it either “low”, “medium”, “high”, “off”, or “on”. i have caught myself a few times now in public places shouting out, “computer!” and then expecting to hear a beep. when i don’t hear the beep, i realize that i’m not in my room and i must semm really, really weird that i just shouted “computer!” with no apparent reason.


you should have known better

by in large, i think that generally speaking, i’m a pretty straight-forward kind of a person. i do what i say i will do and i mean what i say. this usually isn’t a problem because most people then aren’t left guessing about what is really going on.

it’s the people who don’t say what they mean that really frustrates me. sometimes i get into these heated discussions about something to realize later that what they were really saying isn’t what they had meant. if they had done that from the beginning, none of these misunderstandings, hurt feelings, and general pains would have occurred in the first place.

and then there are those people who continue to make mistakes beyond what i would consider as reasonable. these are the people who don’t really consider other people’s feelings before they act, and often hurt those around them. they don’t learn from their past mistakes, or they choose not to learn.

is it too hard to ask of people in general to maybe think about the repercussions their actions may have before just blindly doing whatever they want?

maybe it is. and maybe that’s why i’m left wondering why it is that i still care about these people who just don’t learn.

why is that?

pizza hut is cool

i have always enjoyed pizza hut’s pizzas. i like their crunchy crusts, the thick crusts and the great balance of sauce and toppings. i was hungry last night and i went to order a pizza, but i checked the web site to see what i should order. they have coupons online!

this was like a gold mine for me. i never remember to save the mailers so i always end up missing a coupon. but now, you can get a pizza hut coupon anytime you want. it shaved the price from $19 to $13. pretty good deal for a large combo.

i think it’s hilarious that you can order pizza from pizza hut while playing everquest 2. man, what will they think of next?

how do you do

how do you do

I see you comb your hair
and gimme that grin.
It’s making me spin now,
spinnin’ within.
Before I melt like snow,
I say Hello
How do you do!

I love the way you undress now.
Baby begin.
Do your caress, honey, my heart’s in a mess.
I love your blue-eyed voice,
like Tiny Tim shines thru.
How do you do!
Well, here we are crackin’ jokes in the corner of our mouths
and I feel like I’m laughing in a dream.
If I was young I could wait outside your school
cos your face is like the cover of a magazine.

How do you do,
do you do,
the things that you do.
No one I know could ever keep up with you.
How do you do!
Did it ever make sense to you to say Bye
Bye Bye?

I see you in that chair with perfect skin.
Well, how have you been, baby, livin’ in sin?
Hey, I gotta know,
did you say Hello
How do you do?
Well, here we are spending time in the louder part of town
and it feels like everything’s surreal.
When I get old I will wait outside your house
cos your hands have got the power meant to heal.

How do you do…
