Qwest has gotten a little out of hand with their broadband prices…

Hey, it's not so bad with the $50 gift card

It just goes to show you how important decimal points are.

I Talked With My Dad Last Night

Tuesday, March 2nd, 2010

This is my best effort to recall a conversation I had with my Dad last night at the viewing at the funeral home.

“I miss you Dad. I know I don’t need to talk to the body you left behind or you to hear me, but it makes it easier. I love you Dad, and I miss you. But don’t worry… I’m not in any hurry to join you right now. I want to make you proud of me. I know you are proud of me, but I need to make you as proud of me as I am of you. And to do that I am going to need to live a long, full life. I miss you Dad.”

So this is where my blog was hiding

Yeah yeah I know, it has been a while. I am going to really start trying to make an effort to blog at least once a week.  Here is the skinny

  • My first term of school went so well, the school sent me a 2 GB school branded flash drive to congratulate me.  Of course, I’m sure there is a closet of these that was ordered for something else (a poorly thought out, Bobbing for Flash Drives halloween party game?).  At some point, someone said, “Hey!!!!!!  Let’s give these to students to make them feel good about themselves and so I have a place to put all the coffee filters!”  Then again, I guess, in the end, I get a flash drive.
  • While randomly looking up books I have access to through school, I found one about making money through podcasts.  So now I am all into Podcasting.  I had the idea a few years ago of doing some sort of comedy radio show, but I dunno.  I need to learn more about it first.  In doing so, I went looking for Podcasts to listen to and found a Podcast version of the NPR show Geekspeak.  I like it.  I tried finding others, but holy cow, there are a ton.  Maybe I could make some money reviewing podcasts instead… a podcast about podcasts… ooo, it makes me tingle.
  • I still like sitting on my couch.
  • I have like 4 or 5 unfished blog posts that will hopefully be mildly amusing when I get done with them.
