A late merry Christmas and a happy new year to everyone!
I simply must start taking time for these posts, its part of my new years resolution list after all…again. >_>
I’m recently returned from a 3 day new years LAN. The theme was Serious Sam but we played much more. I’m happy to report good times were had by all, but we all have work so it had to wrap up.
Of course like everyone else I have my own list of things I’d like to get done but most certainly will not, so without further ado…
Thought I should throw in a blog post that wasn’t about the blog itself for once and while I am indeed a fan of some good old apple & cinnamon oatmeal, that’s not what I want to talk about today.
Today I just wanted to take a sec and promote a recent find via coworker Lauren. TheOatmeal.com is a fun little one man humor site full of comics both article like and random in their views and commentary as well as quizzes ranging from “Could You Pass a Driving Test?” to “How Long Could You Survive After Kicking a Bear in the Balls?”.
My personal foray into the twisted world of TheOatmeal started with “Why it’s better to pretend you don’t know anything about computers”, which Lauren thought I’d appreciate (I am the sole IT person for my company) and forwarded over. Appreciate it I did, so much that I could not help but give in to distraction and read on further into the site, which for the most part was equally full of win, a second short but sweet example being “8 Ways to Prepare Your Pets for War”(I have cats ).
So anyway, go and give it a look. I’ve finished all the comics and while its not pure gold, its pretty dang close. I now plan to follow up by taking the quizzes and posting the results to a soon to be made, “About Me” page, or something like that. Finally a place to save all the results from these kinds of things. Never had a good place before.
I must say it really is amazing the way the post ideas flow once you open yourself to talking about whatever you feel like. Of course this lack of focus will probably result in fewer watchers/subscribers, but so it goes.
