KickIdle Stuff

That’s right, you can now purchase wonderful merchandise at the KickIdle Store. Not much there now, because I need to get some high-res scans of most of my pictures before I do upload them. But it’ll be moving along eventually, so check back, or sign up for the newsletter.

I Repent!

I shall not call you ‘baby’. I shall not call you ‘baby’. I shall not call you ‘baby’. I shall not call you ‘baby’. I shall not call you ‘baby’. I shall not call you ‘baby’. I shall not call you ‘baby’. I shall not call you ‘baby’. I shall not call you ‘baby’. I shall not call you ‘baby’. I shall not call you ‘baby’. I shall not call you ‘baby’. I shall not call you ‘baby’. I shall not call you ‘baby’. I shall not call you ‘baby’. I shall not call you ‘baby’. I shall not call you ‘baby’. I shall not call you ‘baby’. I shall not call you ‘baby’.

Saving the Best for Last

This article about John Caudwell banning e-mail in his company was entertaining, but the finish was what really made me glad I had read it:

The 50-year-old is renowned for a flamboyant lifestyle that includes a four-seater helicopter, twin-engined jet, £1 million schooner yacht and £250,000 Bentley Azure.
In the last three years he has broken his neck three times, twice coming off his super-fast motorbikes and once landing awkwardly on his Olympic-sized trampoline.

Damn! Now there’s a man who’s living life with gusto! hahaha

Are we really this stupid?

I’ve noticed that if I join a chat room in Yahoo! late at night, I invariably get the same progression of events:

  1. Someone says “Hi” in a private message.
  2. I look at their profile and guess that he’s male.
  3. He says “a/s/l”.
  4. I tell him I’m a 26/m.
  5. He says “bye”.

This whole exchange is pointless because all of that information is in my profile!
My god, no wonder the most common comment I get out of women online is “wow, you actually have a brain”. How hard is it to check someone’s profile before you waste their time? Please, guys, learn to use your brain and stop embarassing our half of the species!
