First off, allow me to channel the spirit of Acidman: Whoever came up with the nitwit idea of "roll over to play" fucking internet ads needs to be dragged off and shot.
Especially when there's 2-3 seconds of nothing at the start of the ad, so that you go to a different tab and then wonder WTF is making all that noise? And whoever came up with the brilliant idea of letting any yahoo with a used car emporium use really loud (and bad) pseudo-rock music as their background? Also dragged off and shot.
And while I'm complaining about car stuff online, Nissan, your website SUCKS. Seriously. I attempted to use your carbuilder feature for about 10 minutes last night, and gave up when it consistently failed to load. This is on a standard Windows-based PC that's not unduly old nor underpowered, coming over a reasonably fast cable model connection. Whoever your web person is, give them a kick in the shins for me and tell them to smarten up.
For those in a praying mood, Kevin's niece is battling leukemia. I really hate cancer, especially when it strikes little kids. They've set up a web page to chronicle her battle and to help defray her medical costs, so if you've got a spare shekel, consider helping Maddy out.
In happy news, Lissa is a new mommy! YAY BABIES!!!
RULE FOUR, PEOPLE. Stories like these drive me apeshit. It frightens me that there are people so monumentously stupid that they'll just grab a gun and blast away at anything they see moving. This is especially enraging to me as that little girl is the same age as my daughter. I cannot imagine how anyone with two functioning brain cells to rub together could confuse a 9 year old child with a skunk...
I think that about wraps up the good news/bad news portion of the day...
That is all.
