Boredom Fading

Although myCaledon isn’t officially launched fully yet (aiming at 9/1) I have put up my first three DVD reviews. If everyone has a bit of time maybe you can give at least one a read and toss some comments in here to let me know what you think. Everything I do is a work-in-progress without that silly picture of the construction worker you see on all those Geocities sites. ;) Please note the 10 Easter Eggs I personally found in the Van Wilder DVD. That’s an accomplishment in my own mind, and I’m hoping they get listed at DVD Easter Eggs because it took me forever to find them all.

Vegas is almost booked for the 16th-20th of September. The hotel is taken care of thanks to my friend Steve and I’m just trying to confirm a cheap-ish flight – so far $505 seems to be as good as it’s going to get, CDN. This is going to be hella-cool because I’ve been dying to see Vegas for years now and never made it. Thank God I don’t gamble or I’d be in trouble.

I noticed Dr. Personality wasn’t filling for Chris on Call For Help today – why was that? He really kind of stunk the joint up on Monday, and today we got Brett instead. Brett’s pretty cool, even if he’s an evangelist for an inferior computer. ;)

BTW, my life sucks because I missed Gnomedex for a second year. Maybe next year – although that is what I said last year…


Sweet merciful crap it’s hot

Sweet merciful crap it’s hot outside today! I was oblivious to this fact as I sat in my comfortable air conditioned home office typing away this morning trying to get a proposal ready for Jumbo Video on behalf of and finally left the house to drop it off at 2pm. I had the A/C blasting in the car and it couldn’t keep up – I raced up there, gave the manager the proposal and headed right back home. I’m now sitting here drinking ice water and trying to cool back down. I don’t envy any of you that are living without air conditioning right now, I can’t imagine trying to sleep in this. Insane.

I’m close to deciding to merge in to a new site I’d like to develop that would basically be a site geared towards men and everything they like. I’m still entertained by the sports handicapping stuff and would move that over to the new site, and also start doing all sorts of other things. The only problem I’m coming up with is a name for the site that’s both available AND good. Hard to come by. If you have any thoughts just toss me an e-mail.

I finally got my DVD-ROM working again here in the office so I can now watch DVDs on my flat screen 19″ monitor in high resolution. It’s amazing the difference between this and a television – I’d love to be able to one day pick up an HDTV to see the difference downstairs too.
Back to work with Rick .. later!
