This May Be The Best Costume I’ve Ever Seen

I wonder where one would procure such an outfit?

Test Post From My iPhone

Just testing, nothing to see here. Move along.

Melinda Gates Wants An iPhone

Here’s something interesting. Bill Gates has banned all Apple products in his house. But the wife has her eyes on an iPhone.

Microsoft founder head Bill Gates has banned the use of products made by arch-rival Apple from his house, his wife has revealed. But the blockade could backfire on Gates, 53, after Melinda admitted there are times she feels envious of her friends’ iPhones. She told Vogue magazine that the couple’s three children Jennifer, 13, Rory, 10 and Phoebe, seven, are not allowed Apple products. ‘There are very few things that are on the banned list in our household,’ she said.

‘But iPods and iPhones are two things we don’t get for our kids.’ Like any forbidden fruit, however, Mrs Gates, 44, admitted that some Apple products do have the power to tempt her. ‘Every now and then I look at my friends and say ‘Ooh, I wouldn’t mind having that iPhone,’ she admitted.

Then she realizes that’s it’s probably better not to piss off the billionaire that she managed to marry, and shuts the fuck up.

Well, At Least She Got What She Wished For

This is the most fucked up Christmas story. Ever.

PHARR, Texas —  A 9-year-old girl’s letter to Santa Claus asking that a relative stop touching her and her sister has led to the arrest of a 55-year-old Pharr man on charges of continuous sexual abuse of a young child, according to a newspaper report.

Andres Enrique Cantu, 55, of Pharr, remained in the Hidalgo County Jail Monday night after his arrest Friday. His bond was set at $100,000. It wasn’t immediately clear if Cantu had an attorney.

Rot in hell, asshole. Maybe you’ll be writing letters to Santa asking for the inmates to stop ass raping you. I doubt he’ll grant your wish.

Happy Halloween

Like Robb, whom I stole this from, the geek in me really likes this.

Just In Case You’re Upgrading

If you get in on the Microsoft Virtual PC 2007 beta, here’s


Well, my hosting provider says my blog was causing processor spikes on their server and that I needed to fix it. Well, that’s what they told me after I contacted them to see why my site was down (with no warning or notification). Seems odd, since I’ve been using the same blog engine for over a year with them, and nothing about it has changed since I first uploaded it

So, I had been wanting to convert over to Subtext anyway, what better opportunity than this? So I installed it, did an import of my old blog, and with quite a bit of tinkering, was able to get my site pretty much back to the way it was.

If anyone notices anything funky that’s not working, let me know, there’s a Contact link up at the top…that is working now that I’ve fixed it.
