Dis and dat

Looks like Jen and I are going to be going to Vegas with a free room at a popular strip hotel. (No, jelly_doughnut and jumbach, it's not where we met/ate. Either place.) Probably be coming back on July 4, long before any fireworks, because I hate traffic. And no, msmcfeeley, I won't lose my cell.

Speaking of which, msmcfeeley, have you ever won off this Blingo thing? I've been there for two months and have gotten nothing, and don't know if I'm wasting my time...

I know that it's some 80 some degrees outside still, but my feet are cold. Of course, I don't have any shoes or socks on, and am inside in a nicely air conditioned house.

Just bought Jen and her mother tickets to the return of The Lion King at the Pantages Theater. Second row, center. Unbelievable... It's good to be on a pre-order email list.

I have a whole shelf of books that I have yet to read, and yet feel compelled to buy more. Is that wrong?

The California primary elections are tomorrow, and I can't wait until 8 pm when I won't have to see Phil Angelides and Steve Westly for a while. Of course, the cycle then goes into a frenzy with Arnold Schwarzenegger, Tom McClintock, and others joining the frey.

I'm pondering doing some home automation and whatnot with the house. I may just go with remote controls for the lighting and shades upstairs, or I may do something more. I'm reading up on some things like X10 (the protocol, not the irritating pop-up and pop-under purveyors), and have to address a moral issue. Namely, should I get some X10 protocol equipment from X10.com (that irritating pop-up and pop-under purveyor mentioned earlier) which would further support their horrible advertising schemes? Ugh. Maybe I'll just stick with remote control switches...

Can we take bets on that?
And yeah, you know.. I always forget to use Blingo but I do use it now and then... if I recall they don't have images and since I like to hotlink (shhh) I usually use Google instead but yeah, when I remember to switch over... nope never won a thing. A friend of mine did win free movie tickets once *shrug*

Blingo has pictures now, but not via Google. It's using PicSeach, whatever that is...

Damn. It was worth a shot.

I hear those two pimping a free Vegas vacation on the radio quite a bit.

Ah! I understand now!

No. My wife likes slot machines, and we have a slot club card. They like her. They could give a wooden nickel about me.

And at this point in my life, I'd never have a need to do a timeshare thing ever. If I'm going to buy a timeshare, I'll buy it off the thousands of people who are trying to unload theirs, and at a significantly lower price.

Oh yeah: Tomorrow's election day in California. Damn, am I THAT out of the loop despite being only 2-3 hours from the capital of the world's sixth largest economy?????????????

I need to start reading the Sacramento paper online.

(Obviously, I'm not voting in it. The first statewide election I've missed since turning 18.)
