I Owe Some Friday Fun

Yesterday’s regularly scheduled programming was preempted by a special event (see, Recognition Of A Special Day) and so I feel I should make it up to you, Dear Reader, and post some “Friday Fun” today.

Not that anyone will see it… nobody reads me on Saturdays…

Note: there is some (rather) “adult” language ..

Best Fails of 2011

And on a more serious note..

Is That Email Legitimate?

Folks, a reader sent in a question I really think you should see… Read more

I have a chance to relax a bit today, and I’m going to take it. I hope you all have a safe and a very pleasant weekend.

  1. Hey, I read you on Saturday, Sunday, and every other day of the week.

    I’m not as stupid as many of those characters in the video seem to be.

    I don’t leave many comments here but I do read all of your posts.

    Maybe the blocking of all 3rd Party Elements in Ghostery (a Firefox add-on) is defeating your counter.

    • balmy33,
      Loyal readers are aware (but it’s worth mentioning again) that I use Mozilla’s Firefox browser. And I do so because of the security, privacy, and ad blocking plugins (called “Add ons”) available for it (and I simply say “No thanks” each week when a new version is released). Ghostery (scroll down for RL reviews) is one such add on, and I am glad to hear that someone out there is taking advantage of its availability.

      As for the other thing.. I have to confess I was feeling a bit frisky, and that line was an obscure reference to an article I wrote a long, long time ago now.. (Nobody reads me on Saturdays).
      (I think maybe one.. or possibly two.. people out there might have “caught” that one.)

    • delenn13,
      Reader ‘support’ such as yours is much appreciated here.. and I haven’t heard that one in a long time, so, it stays.
