spew - what is it?
|This is where I go to get things off my chest every now and then. For those of you familiar with my old rantings, this is basically the same thing, 'cept maybe a tad more risqué since I won't mince on cussing. ;-p But don't worry, I won't spit out shit for no reason. For those of you who've never been to my pages before, this section is here for me to make comments (mostly educated, sometimes not) about things that I've observed in my life and also just to keep my friends up to date with what I've been doing. Keep in mind that anything you read on here is pure opinion which might not jive with your own view of the world. If that's the case, friendly messages espousing your own views are welcome but flames will be cruelly mocked. So, without further ado....||

Man, what an absolutely terrible time to be unemployed. Not only is the economy in the NYC area so crappy that jobs are tough to come by, but Apple has to come out with their new 17" Powerbook. Argggghh!!!! So close yet so far! *sigh* Even the new ad is great! Definitely worth a look. =)
Ah well, I still have what, a year? to go before my self-imposed "no new Macs" restriction is up. Must work on my willpower! ;-p
Hmmm.... well there was the semi-big broohaha a few months back about a few websites put up by "entrepreneurial" ladies asking for donations to help them pay off their huge credit card bills. And what did the kind donators get in return? Nothing. Not even a nude photo. What a rip. ;-p Now, there's this new site where a young Asian woman is asking for donations to go towards her breast (currently 34A) enhancement fund. Wow. People never cease to surprise me. The target amount is $4500 and after a month of obscurity, I guess the site's rep is starting to make its way around cause she just got up to nearly $500 in one day. Interesting way to make some money I guess. Even if she doesn't make the $4500 required for a boob job, that's still a nice chunk of change she gets to keep for whatever she wants. Maybe I should start taking bets as to when we'll see www.givepenis.com.

Heh, seeing that I'm not a nubile young woman, Benisjobless.com unfortunately, most likely would not work. =p

If it's a handful, then it's big enough. :-) Boobs, I mean. Not notebooks. Although I suppose if it's your preference you could also apply that rule to... oh, nevermind.

Maybe you should setup your own site and call it: Benisjobless.com "Give me money or give me a job" You gadget freak.

Ha ha. (ROTFL) Your frustration wouldn't be so amusing if I didn't know it was true. :-) Sometimes I wodner if there's any other reason you work, besides to acquire gadgets. :-) If I was a mean, heartless bastard, I might pick one up. (You know I'm considering a new machine.) But I probably won't... because I'm just a cheap bastard!

The Present Out of Left Field Award this year goes to Andy Chang for the following:
Sorry for the fuzzy picture but Erin has my digital camera in Taiwan currently so I had to make do with my cell phone camera. For those of you who aren't anime fans, these are figurines of the main characters from Maison Ikkoku, my favorite anime series of all time. Having fun with eBay huh, Andy? ;-) But they're very cool. =) Now I just need a scale model of Ikkoku-kan and my figurines will have a home! ;-p
Ahh, the power of the Internet. There's a new Listerine commercial with this absolutely cute-as-hell woman in it so I figured I'd google to see if I could find any info on the young woman. Unfortunately, nothing turned up so far except for more fans looking for the same info. Although I did find this picture which another fan took. Unfortunately it doesn't cover the entire sequence since her last few expressions in the commercial are the cutest. ;-)

yes yes listerine girl.. I have been entranced by her energetic elf like sassiness.. I want to know her name.. Wonder if the Folks at listerine (or her ) are aware of the (dare I say) groundswell (well i said it) of interest in her identity.. MAybe a series even, just a thirty minute sitcom of her swishing..

You know, that photo sequence of the mouth wash girls is quite a hoot. If it was blown up and framed, it would look great in the bathroom. I wonder who she is as well. She looks familiar.

I actually found your blog by searching for Listerine Girl. And I got the picture, too. I love the Internet. I don't know about this Erin girl, not having seen her, but that chick is freaking cute. Especially when she winks at the end. I die every time. Now to find the cute girl from the phone commercials. If only I could remember the company. Verizon, maybe.
2003-01-04 17:55:18 - Ronin
Heh, uh.... a little? Listerine girl has bigger eyes and a wider range of cute expressions (being an actress and all) but she lacks Erin's cute dimples when she smiles. ;-p
2003-01-04 09:31:23 - kallequin
I guess the Listerine girl is cute, but doesn't she look a lot like Erin? Maybe it's just me... ^_^

Hard to concentrate while watching SNL w/Al Gore. Some pretty funny stuff.
Anyhoo, since my last spew, the world's pretty much continuing its spiraling descent to oblivion. I have my My Yahoo page set up to display 9 headlines per news category and pretty much something bad is going on in the world 90% of the time in every single category except sports and entertainment. And even today there was the laughable "North Korea Says Bond Movie Insults Korea" headline under entertainment which just highlights the fact that dictators and religious nuts need to lighten up and get a sense of humor and a grip on reality. I'm sure they'll also be beefing up their coastal defenses to defend against top secret agent surfers. Idiots.
Now I know that the education (or lack of) of today's US youths have been beaten to death already but apparently the media never tires of it since there was this article a few weeks back which basically reconfirms the fact that 18-24 year old Americans are absolute dunces when it comes to geography. Not that I really think that one's knowledge of geography is the benchmark of one's overall intelligence but when 70% of the survey takers can't find New Jersey on a map... maybe I'm just touchy since I live in NJ.
Anyways, to top it all off, the inevitable occurred this past week and Qwest finally decided to lay off the rest of the web services group. At this point it consisted only of the content management group. While the group (QWCC) I was moved to a few months back was spared, I and another coworker in QWCC were let go simply because we were in the wrong office. Most of the members of QWCC are in either Philadelphia or Denver. My guess is that the days of the Weehawken office are numbered. First time I've been layed off in my professional career and it's a peculiar feeling. Sad cause I did have a pretty sweet gig going on at Qwest. I'll miss my ol' office there. At least Qwest has a pretty nice severance package. Well, here's hoping to a brighter New Year. We all need it.

I couldn't tell who and what where how is unemployed but I'll assume it's you Ben being unemployed. Will you stay in the US? If you're interested, I've been sourcing out a lot of products from the factories in China. You can see some of them on the site www.hklist.com. I have a new product that will be put on the site pretty soon. Let me know if you are interested to wholesale some of these products out in the US. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Craig

Heh, yeah I might have more free time these days but doubt I'll spend most of it on this. ;-p Site does need some tweaking but mostly in the backend where normal visitors wouldn't see anyway. Besides, I like this current layout. Simple and sweet. =)

that sucks that you were downsized. i visit this site now and then at work just to waste time. now that you have lots of time on hand you can maybe give the site either some fine tuning or a major overhaul. anyways, hope things work out for ya cause the economy sucks and tech sector's pretty doing bad. -tn
