Victory... is mine!
I am invincible, it would seem, all thanks to the mighty power of Google's magical and most wonderful Toobar 2.0. Not only does it have the usual search capabilities, it now has a super-sweet pop-up ad blocker. Pop-up ads have been the bane of my existance for about as long as they've existed, especially the ones that spawn sixty new pop-up windows when you attempt to close just one of them.

So yeah, surfing the web just got a little better. It's almost back to the same level of pain to use that it was in the late 90s when things didn't entirely suck.

Today I'm planning to go sailing with one of the people I work with at the office. I'll be bringing my digital camera along and hopefully there will be a few opportunities for taking pictures of the city and the lake. With more luck I can convince roho to join me. In speaking with PE this morning it sounds like thus far I'm the only confirmed guest he's got, which is a bit of a shame, the weather is lovely for this sort of activity and his boat is quite nice. We'll only be out for a few hours (from around 1:00 pm to 4 or 5 o'clock) but it'll be something very different from our usual weekend routine of chores, movies and shopping. As such I've made up my mind: I'm going to enjoy this, dammit, and nothing will stop me from getting there on time! I haven't been out on a boat since the last time I visited my grandfather in Flordia, and that was almost a decade ago.

. o O o .


Addendum: Roho's joining me. Hooray! I promise that I'll bring your boy back in one piece, Kestral.

.... he might be a little wet and bedraggled, but he'll be in one piece.

It's the singer not the song

It may make you invincible, but it doesn't seem to magically stop you from misspelling 'toolbar.' :D

(I rely on Mozilla for my pop-up blocking power. MmmmmmmmmmMozilla!)

Bah. I blame society for my typographical error. Hye, that brings up a great idea: maybe I can't sue McDonald's for making me fat, but I bet I can sue them for making me type poorly!

I used to like Mozilla, but it's really gone to its happy place in the last few releases. As a consequence of their obsession with making something look pretty before making it functional I've lapsed back into Internet Explorer.

What about the bachelor post-party?

[What about the bachelor post-party?]

Mmm, good point. Allow me to rephrase and more accurately convey what I was meaning to say: I haven't been on a boat that was out on a large body of water (a large body of water is, to me, defined as one were it's possible to lose sight of the shoreline) since I visited my grandfather in Florida.

There! I trust that clears that all up, mmm?

... this sailboat better not have spiders the way the bachelor-party boat did!
