Flash Interactive: Airport Security

Be an airport security screener!   This stuff was hard.  I got an OK score, but you should try it.  No wonder the lines take so long.  I thought 2 minutes wasn't much time, but jeez, now I have a headache...   And this is just gross.  He can't get his hands on other people's kids, so he's decanting more from...

Rant: Worries

Like every American, and probably everyone in the world today, I worry that suddenly, my life will be cut short by the acts of others.  Not only by a drunk driver late at night, but also maybe by a faulty elevator at work, a stray bullet in a bad neighborhood, or terrorists.  Or an abusive, controlling boyfriend.   ...

Republicans sayyyyyy…

Being a drug addict is a moral failing and a crime unless you're a conservative radio host. Then it's an illness and you need our prayers for your recovery. The United States should get out of the United Nations, and our highest national priority is enforcing U.N. resolutions against Iraq. Government should relax regulation of Big Business... Read more →

Names and more names…

Damn http://www.bandnamemaker.com/ for making this so difficult.  You just enter a word, any word, that you like or want to use, and it makes a million trillion names using that word.  Though I am unlikely to use Cadillac of the Goldfish Salsa, it has so many directions and options and branches that I have sppent hours on that...

You Know You’re Asian If…

People think you're Chinese no matter what part of Asia you are truly from. People think you know their Chinese friend who lives in Baltimore. Your family always cheers for the Asian contestant on TV. You will get carded until you're 50 years old. Your parents enjoy comparing you to their friends' kids. Your non-Asian friends ask you how...

While on the ugly bus…

A bus full of ugly people crashes, and everyone dies. They then get to meet their maker, and because of the grief they have experienced, He decides to grant them one wish each before they enter Paradise. They're all lined up, and God asks the first one what the wish is. "I want to be gorgeous," and so God snaps His fingers, and it is done.... Read more →

OK, third post today

My esteemed other half has reminded me that if we use the word "goldfish" in the domain name, it's already eight characters, so keeping it down to 10 ain't gonna work. OK, so just keep it real. Something that's easy to say and not confused with other words easily. He produced this list, (so don't steal), and I like a few (the ones with... Read more →

New Domain Name: VOTE!!!!

OK, here's the deal. I am going to dispose of my ctjie.com domain name and start up another one just for me and my personal stuff. But. I need help coming up with the right name, something that hasn't been taken yet, but is reflective of myself, my personality, my likes and stuff, etc. Something that fits. Vote below by clicking on the... Read more →

That’s HIM!

I teach at a local large company in the evenings on Wednesdays. Our class takes place in the activity center for the company, and down the hall from our class is the basketball court, with windows so you can watch the guys play. Usually it's full of pasty, slightly overweight 30-something Chinese, with a big ol' black man thrown in there for... Read more →

Gripe, grouse, complain.

This morning it was hard to get up. I heard meowing, plaintive and lost, neeeeedy meowing. Almost panicked. I stumbled out of bed to see who was trapped/lost/hurt. It was Salju, begging Tony to pet her. And I think I want a vocal siamese-type cat. Ha. After I fell back into the bed, mumbling at Salju to shut up, I dropped off to sleep... Read more →

Goings on

I am stressing myself out for no reason, likely, but I am worried about changing webhosts. Not because I have a problem with my current host but because, dude, I am getting RIPPED OFF. I didn't know this, until I started doing research for my new company, and now I'm going...mmmm, OK, I am getting ripped off. Do I care? I mean, OK, I am... Read more →

Removing my head from the sand for a moment

I try not to be political, I really do. I generally believe that if everybody minded their own beeswax and just got on with shit that everything would work out best. Do unto others. But sometimes...I just have to say something. I am from Texas. This does not mean I love President Bush. This, in fact, means that I can disapprove even... Read more →

Oh yeah…

When I was at the mall this afternoon for a waste-an-hour, I saw this burgundy generic American old sedan in the parking lot with the words "Th Hoe #1" haphazardly scratched into the paint of its trunk. Beside the scratches was a big, bright yellow hair clippy with a smiley face on it. I'm thinkin', Jesus. What you'd have to do to get... Read more →

Last Comic Standing: I was robbed!

Last night on Last Comic Standing, and hell the day before, I was robbed. I chose 8/10 of the finalists, but my favorite finalist didn't make it. Both of the Dans, Dan Naturman and Dan Ahdoot, who I had chosen for the top 10, were eliminated. Now the rest of them are just fluff, and I am considering not watching the show. OK, just like...
