Fool On The Hill

2007-04-06 - 11:42 a.m.

Another busy night at work.

I was SO glad to get out of my shoes. So if you saw a mushroom cloud in my area around midnight, that's all it was.


Two items from the Here's Your Sign Dept.:

Got an interesting piece of spam the other day. Here's the text in its entirety, minus the link. See if you can tell me what's wrong with this picture:

The loan officer is without any doubt pleased to have looked at your home refinance invitation confirmation
which we accepted not quite 9 weeks ago

We are going to push thru your loan proposition
We need you to graciously, urgently fill out your final details at our webpage

By the way, I am in an apartment. So home refinancing, what's the word I'm looking for...WRONG!!

If phish e-mails like this actually work, then I despair for mankind. We can't possibly be this stupid.

Oh wait...yes we can.


Tomorrow is Brin's birthday. We plan to go to the Park. She is willing to try Tower Of Terror, as long as I'm there to get her through it. It's also Spring Break, and the day before it's going to be crowded. We might not have time to do everything we want to do.

In line with that thinking, here's a link to a page on Mark Evanier's website about his interactions with a tour group that sets up day-long trips to Disneyland. Problem is, the tour group is in Vegas.

Seems Mark gave someone advice about a day-tour to Disneyland from Vegas, and then the tour company...well, go read it. It's funny and painfully true.


Today I have errands to run and we need to stalk and kill some lunch.

Be seeing you.
