    and just like that it’s done 

    kevin holtsberry is the winner of the Blogger Pro sponsorship dealio. and im speechless, which, you should know by now is a lie.

    lets talk about Blogger Pro for a second. yes, it’s a little more reliable. yes it has spell check. yes it has lots of other features that i haven’t even used yet. but mostly it’s a way for me to reward the guy who wrote the software that i use most on my day, so i paid Ev for it, as he deserves the cash for creating a revolution. period.

    if you are a fan of Blogger, you should upgrade to Pro when you feel the urge to upgrade, don’t jump ship to MT or something else. be loyal. loyalty is a good thing.

    yesterday me and my coworkers went over to the Farmer’s Market on Fairfax and 3rd in the middle of LA. i like eating lunch there or dinner there because theres so many choices and its super old school and you shouldn’t be surprised if you see a lady working behind one of the counters who sets down her baby on the counter to answer the phone and ten seconds later hands you your food right where the baby’s diapered ass once sat.

    to me, that’s priceless. homey. small town. classic.

    but because im a loyal sap, no matter how many choices they have there i will eat only at two locales: the crazy shrimp place or the cajun place.

    yesterday i had gumbo and red beans and rice and a black cherry soda. total cost $12, which is a lot for lunch, but usually i make my own lunch and its my belief that certain things like good food are priceless and if some dude can just bust with the sweet authentic gumbo in the middle of tinsletown, that mofo deserves whatever he asks.

    last time i had crawfish there, which were fun, but not for lunch, because it took too long to unpeel those babies and my fingers smelled like seafood all day.

    speaking of loyalty: so many of my girl friends are out of town this week and its made me sorta miss them. chris is in amsterdam, karisa is in beantown, ashley is in vegas, and meesh – even though she was a freaker on friday night – is hiking in oregon.

    does this make me more productive at work due to the fact that i don’t have to email them so much?

    not at all.

    what has made me more productive is that im happy that my wrists are at about 90% with only slight buzziness in them. the constant icepacks have helped a lot and the rest this weekend that i gave them was huge.

    am i rambling? guess i am. ok. bye.

    p.s. gavin, shes never gonna marry your luckier than lucky ass unless you fucking hold her hand you swishy limey prettyboy coldfish faker, and by the way her band kicked your band in the ass this year. beaten again by the girl you wish you were. maybe you should go back to ripping off kurdt.

    p.p.s. anyone who wants to keep this party going and donate $20 or $40, feel free, and with your generosity attach a blog topic request and i will be happy to fulfill it.
