Some Recent Tweets

I’ve been doing more posting on Twitter lately than here.  My thoughts are a jumbled mess lately. 140 characters is a good limit for me.  But for those not inclined to become Twitterers, here are some highlights.  And because I love you all so much, I’ll add italicized updates after each tweet, where appropriate.

  • Had a nice flame in the fireplace tonight for four hours. Then smoke filled the house. UGH. Never using fireplace again. [And the carpet still smells of smoke.  Any suggestions?]
  • Hmmm, traffic on AugieShoots.com today is double what it usually is on a Sunday. Interesting. [Someone somewhere had to have linked through, but I can’t find any evidence of it.]
  • I’m ready for it to be Friday now.   [I posted that on Tuesday. It’s been that kind of week.]
  • Sat in a meeting this week where the presenter had to ask himself questions to give us information. I hate that tic. [So what do I mean by that? I mean that it bothers me greatly.]
  • Adobe Flash Installer forces me to quit Adobe Flash Installer to continue. Thus, it shall never be installed. Bizarre.
  • I don’t get the point of ReTweets, and I’m glad to see the backlash beginning against them now.
  • Is there a retweet hash tag, just so Twitter can eat its own tail officially?
  • LOST was on tonight? I used to watch that show. ::sigh:: [I still plan on catching up.  I’ve had to delete ’24’ from the DVR, though.  I’m out of time.  This baby thing is hard.]
  • Silver Surfer looks ridiculous in a loin cloth. There. I said it. [I normally don’t talk comics on this blog, but I can’t help myself here.]
  • Is it so wrong that it made me VERY happy today to discover that JavaScript does regular expressions? Whoo-hoo!
  • Favorite part of American Idol auditions? Job descriptions! One Salt Lake City contestant was “Font Designer.” She made it through. YAY!
  • Everyone’s happy about another over-the-hill white guy singing at half-time Sunday now? Tom Petty got killed for that sin last year. [Or was that the Rolling Stones?  Like there’s a difference.  Next year: John Cougar Mellencamp, I’m sure.]

  1. As for the fireplace thing, you might want to make sure that everything is open to the outside, that no doors are closed, no flue obstructions, etc. Might not be a bad idea to give a chimney sweep a call to make sure that everything is nice and clean in the chimney, as there could have been an ash build up.

  2. The best solution for smoky carpet is to replace the carpet with hardwoods or laminate. I actually laid a laminate in a new home office I had built last summer. I thought it would be ridiculously difficult, but after a learning curve of about 2 hours and a couple of wasted boards, it turned out to be very simple to install myself. Installing it myself saved me anywhere from $500-$1100 based on the estimates contractors gave me.

    Carpet sucks. Really really. We have it only in two rooms and a hallway and I plan on replacing those with wood this spring. Did I say I really really really hate carpet?
