It’s October 15, Blog Action Day. I figured that meant I better get on the blogging ball and write a post that concerns absolutely nothing whatsoever. Funny, you’re still going to read this anyway.

I switched to a different operating system lately. Linux Ubuntu. Am I happy with it? Most definitely! It’s free, all software for it is free (and legal) and I can still play my iPod on it. Sure I’ve got to Google everything to figure how to use it, but once you get the basics down, it’s still time consuming. But it’s free!

The presidential election is just 21 days away. That is 210 TV ads too far away. Although with Obama being up by more than 14% in the polls, this election is all but over. Unfortunately the ads are not.

I don’t even know who else I’m electing in the upcoming election. Our local elections have been so overshadowed by the presidential election; we have absolutely no clue who is running for local office and what they’ll do. I look for the local election results around the country to be completely random.

Who am I kidding? I’m still going to use Microsoft Windows. Just not as much. And I did make the switch to Vista. And yes, I confirmed that I wanted to switch, many, many times over.

October means autumn. Autumn means leaves change color and fall. Falling leaves mean clogged cutters. Clogged gutters mean a sore back and cold hands.

How much money have you lost in the stock market these days? Apparently not enough. I watch earnings from my 401K and an IRA disappear on a daily basis. And what am I doing about it? Wondering what I am going to do about it. At least gas prices are lower and Britain is able to come up with a plan to fix their economy. Luckily the U.S. is a country of followers and not leaders.

I started to watch Heros on NBC. Of course I have only watched the first episode of the first season, but I am already hooked and I think I am the English version of the Japanese dude that can bend the space-time continuum by acting really constipated. I bet you haven’t even noticed how much time you’ve wasted reading this ridiculous blog post. Too bad for you.

I’m also now using the stream-movie feature in my Netflix account. I have two words, LENGEND-DARY! It is so awesome, I want to take it home, make out with it, and then wear it like an old, worn-out shirt. Oh momma!
