With the Tour de France well into the first week, I will resume my posting soon. I have been away on vacation.


Really Interesting Water House

This is what I call a really interesting design. It’s a water house (which takes forever to load at least with the crappy wireless connection I currently have). Not very practical, but would be a lot of fun to see in real life.

Drag Racing Taken to the Next Level

I’ve been watching some really interesting Drag Racing Clips from SpeedTV’s show PINKS. It’s some pretty sweet stuff. It’s not like the drag racing you might seen on ESPN. That’s boring since it is so standard and everyone has pretty much the same technology. Drag racing on PINKS is someone putting their baby on the line. I love seeing the emotion people have for their cars. People are completely addicted to their rides. The thought of losing it should be scary which is what makes PINKS interesting. If you don’t believe me then watch this clip to see what I mean:

If you liked it you can catch an all day marathon of PINKS followed by premiere of PINKS All Out on Speedtv on Nov 23rd.

PayPerPost Featured Blogger – Amy!

Well, the people at PayPerPost have been super busy and so I decided to take up on their great idea to have a featured blogger. I hope PayPerPost gives some love to the featured blogger since they deserve it.

PayPerPost Featured Blogger - AmyMy first featured blogger is Amy. She has two blogs that we know about: Whatever I Feel Like and Feel Good! I guess you can tell her mood by which blog gets more posts.

What do you do when you are not doing PayPerPost?
Are you kidding me – when am I not doing PayPerPost? It’s taken over my whole life! Wink

What did you want to be when you were growing up?
An actress or a model … that didn’t quite work out, obviously.

What are the top 3 songs on your iPod?
I don’t have an iPod. Ha! But some of my favorite songs are Gnarls Barkley’s “Crazy”, Bob Seger’s “The Fire Down Below”, Evanescence’s “Bring Me to Life”, U2’s “Yahweh”, Chicago’s “Saturday in the Park”… I like an eclectic mix of stuff.

The best movie ever made was …
Oh geez, the inevitable “best movie” question. I don’t know the answer to this one… one of my favorite movies of all time is Forrest Gump, though.

If you could recommend one book, it would be …
Wow, just one? That’s hard. On short notice, I will say Donald Miller’s “Blue Like Jazz”.

What are some of your favorite websites? (duh!) (love me some forums!)

Did you ever think you’d make money blogging?
Never in a million years. It still blows my mind that I’m getting paid every day just for writing on my blog!

It’s your last meal. What are you eating?
Oh my goodness. You know I’m a food addict, right? Well, I guess I would go with a steak cooked on the grill by my dad, a freshly baked potato with just the right combination of salt, pepper and butter and a fresh garden salad comprised of dark leafy greens, red peppers, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes and carrots.

Favorite toy as a kid?
Something that had to do with Barbie – probably my Barbie makeup head or whatever that montrosity was called. It was basically a life-sized Barbie head that you could use to put makeup on and play with her hair. I spent hours playing with that thing until the day I got the brilliant idea to give her a hair cut. I was so disappointed with the results of that, I had to banish her to the bottom of my toy chest.

Favorite place on the planet?
On a typical day this would be my house. There’s no place better than my own home. But I also have a strong affinity for Virginia Beach and South Dakota’s Black Hills … hard choices!

Favorite Postie? and why?
Now you know they’re *all* my favorite. I couldn’t possibly pick one. Wink

One story you don’t want to tell us, but you’re going to tell us anyway:
Sheesh – I usually save this stuff for my blog. Somehow I end up telling embarrassing stories on there even when I have no intentions of doing so – they just spill right out from my fingertips!

Anyway, a story I don’t want to tell you would be about how mean I was as a teenager. I swear I’m nicer now. A bunch of us were hanging out in my boyfriend’s room, partying, having a good time, etc. when my best friend left the room to go to the bathroom. I knew my boyfriend had picked up some cigarette “loads” as pranks to play on his friends in the Navy and I was anxious to see how they worked… so I asked him for one to put into one of her cigarettes.

As luck would have it, when she got back to the room, she took a cigarette from her pack, placed it in her mouth and before lighting it said, “Remind me to quit smoking.” Five seconds later, the whole thing had mini-exploded in her mouth. We laughed and laughed and laughed. My friend didn’t think it was *quite* as funny as we did. I know it’s mean, but that story still makes me chuckle when I think of it. Ahh… to be a teenager again.

The Flaming Tamale of PayPerPost

Test to see if this appears.

If you have been following PayPerPost then you’ve certainly come across the infamous Flaming Tamale. Ted has gotten too busy in his new corporate lifestyle so he gave us his Flaming Tamale. In fact, he even posted the following picture of the Flaming Tamale:
Flaming Tamale
If you can’t tell, she’s wearing a Star Trek uniform. No, it’s not just a shirt. It’s a full star trek uniform.

After seeing that I couldn’t help but think what she must be like in real life. Here’s a few thoughts of what she probably does outside of her job outside PayPerPost:

-Downloads illegal copies of Star Trek episodes at home
-Practices splitting her fingers apart because she secretly wishes she was vulcan
-Keeps tapping her chest and saying Beam me up scotty…and yet she’s still back at PayPerPost tomorrow
-Searches all the online dating sites for other trekkies
-Writes a blog about how one day she wants to get married in Las Vegas with someone who has pointy ears

I guess it doesn’t really matter what she does in her free time, as long as she still makes it so I Get Paid For Blogging

Finally a Way to Continue Dancing after Marriage

Posted on: June 7, 2005 I Written By

Test to see if this appears.

When I got married I was quite disappointed to find out that my wife didn’t enjoy dancing. In fact, I almost didn’t get married because of it. Thankfully I made the right choice and I’m grateful that I decided to marry my fabolous wife. However, I still love to dance and wish that I could dance more. My wife has been really great doing some dancing dates and things to make me happy. However, I ran accross this article which could eleviate my wife from dancing forever:
Dancing Robot

What a great concept!! Although, on second thought I’m not sure what the robot would do when it sees my “trying” to dance. Plus, if I did lead wrong then it would definitely be my fault since the Robot just did what I told it to do. Not to mention I can’t imagine dancing close to a metal object. On second thought, the robots out and I’ll continue to dance with my wife in the house where she feels comfortable.
