  • @Alexis_centric hah…SO true. Don’t insult small town people by calling Palin that. #

  • http://is.gd/3j2P umbrella says “f**k the rain” (and Google’s satellites) #

  • @Mobasoft I’m just saying…I’ve been using Gmail and WLM for 4 years without much problem. I’ve had issues with Gmail’s spam filter sucking #
  • @Mobasoft Gmail’s spam filter rarely listens to me. I mark something as spam/safe and it just keeps doing what it wants to. frustrating. #
  • @Mobasoft oh but Gmail is “beta” remember? πŸ˜› #
  • ok, definitely time for some crack (and reading) #
  • @chrisriedinger any trend? Which model is popular? #

  • 7 or 8 different things I should be doing this morning, none of which I actually feel motivated to do. #
  • did I miss something? Why is Apple’s stock price plummeting? #
  • Verizon Wireless to get the iPhone? http://tinyurl.com/48qv4w #
  • soooo much stuff to do in the next 3 1/2 hours. oy vey! #
  • oh man… the Dow is tanking today. This is going to be ugly. #
  • absolutely exhausted, but I need to try and fix my computer this evening instead of being lazy #
  • @edythemighty that would be one very RED iPhone πŸ˜› #
  • never actually thought I’d say I was glad to back on Vista. Fixed my registry…maybe I actually can relax tonight. #
  • http://is.gd/39QT “What Campaign Ads Would Look Like If the Voting Age Was 6” …lol. actually made me laugh on this otherwise awful day #

  • really behind on my RSS feeds…busy busy Friday before I head out for NYC. #
  • wow…my company even sucks enough to block CNN’s videos. That’s pathetic. #
  • totally forgot my girl has her bank account at Wamu …doh. I should have remembered that. #
  • it’s idiotic and a sign of incompetence that McCain can’t multitask and debate as well as “assist” with the bail out talks. (part 1 of 2) #
  • Does McCain really think the president can choose to only focus on a single problem at any given time? What an idiot. (part 2 of 2) #
  • T: “we can huddle under my umbrella” Me: “elllla ellla…” T: “DAMMIT! I RESISTED !” Me: “I didn’t” … πŸ˜› #
  • @StarrGazr I’m sure Fox News has several …that are neither “valid” or “logical” #
  • @StarrGazr …I was being sarcastic πŸ˜› #
  • @creepysleepy yeah, instead he’s the one who screwed up the tentative agreement for the bailout principles. Way to go dumbass! #
  • @StarrGazr oh man..I’d pay money to watch that debate actually. It would be hilarious. She can’t speak by herself though, it’d be brutal. #
  • “Get ready baby, you’re gonna be kissed. At least a dozen, for each kiss we’ve missed. been so wrong for so long, but I’m so right tonight” #
  • @creepysleepy and his obvious lack of a grip on reality. #
  • @creepysleepy I’m quite sure both of them are in their own little worlds…I just prefer Obama’s world at the moment. πŸ˜› #
  • I think less of people who use the wrong word(s) when it comes to computers. “change the size of my screen (resolution)”, etc *sigh* #
  • tonight’s debate is officially on (says CNN) …great news. #
  • there is absolutely no way I will get all of my work done before I leave at 2PM *sigh* …oh well I guess. #

  • lol … easily 3 hours of work left to do, and 2 hours left of work. #
  • Damn it. For lunch it’s either McDonald’s or coffee…what choices. grr #
  • I’m going to be that alcoholic at the bar with a beer at 2PM…well, and a good book. Killing time at the airport. #
  • Oh man… Talk about irony: they are playing George Michaels here in the bathroom. :p #
  • @ceejayoz @andymurd I will give Trac a try. Thanks! πŸ™‚ #
  • Plane is here, but they are still saying we’re delayed? Why? #
  • @StarrGazr NYC…expecting more rain actually :p #
