Bernie Mac

Comedian Bernie Mac died today in Chicago.

Showtime

I resigned on Tuesday and will be returning to Lexington, KY to open a cheer and dance training facility called Showtime Spirit. I’ll post more later.

Microhoo! & Thank You

Microsoft recently made a bid for Yahoo!, which I think is a terrible idea, unless Microsoft is planning on embracing the open source community, which is about as likely as me finding out I’m Bill Gates’ illegitimate child. (That is quite a run on sentence).

My “Thank You” goes to Toshiba for killing HD-DVD without dragging its inevitable death out for a few years. Once Warner Brothers, Wal*Mart, and Netflix bailed on the format, HD-DVD was on life support. I thank Toshiba for being strong enough to pull the plug.

Lingerie

A husband walks into Victoria’s Secret to purchase a sheer lingerie for his wife. He is shown several possibilities that range from $250 to $500 in price, the sheerer, the higher the price. Naturally, he opts for the sheerest item, pays the $500, and takes it home. He presents it to his wife and asks her to go upstairs, put it on, and model it for him.  Upstairs, the wife thinks, “I have an idea. It’s so sheer that it might as well be nothing. I won’t put it on, but I’ll do the modeling naked, return it tomorrow, and keep the $500 refund for myself.” So she appears naked on the balcony and strikes a pose. The husband says, “Good Grief!  You’d think for $500, they’d at least iron it!”

He never heard the shot. Funeral on Thursday at Noon. Closed coffin.

Landware

I emailed Landware at 10:23. They replied, requesting more information at 11:00. I supplied the requested information at 11:09. I received a new activation code at 11:14.Isn’t that how customer service is supposed to work?
