too naughty

Tweet Deck just gave me the following error message:

I am TOO NAUGHTY FOR THE INTERNET!

I am literally *beaming* with delight and pride!

eight is (hopefully not) enough

Delicious Juice Dot Com is 8 years old today. Hooray!

Each year we hit this milestone I am amazed anew – I never knew I had so much to say, or that people would still be reading me after all this time.  I know it’s just a dumb little website, but I’m very fond of it and a little proud, too. I’ve thought a couple times about ending it, but the notion usually lasts for about 3 seconds before I realize that I don’t *want* to stop writing and I *like* having a blog and even when I am not dazzlingly entertaining, someone will be out there reading what I had to say. That is a very comforting thought, not in the least because if I slipped in the shower and broke my neck, eventually someone would wonder why I haven’t been posting and maybe try to find me before the cats could eat my face.

I would like to take this opportunity to ask for a present, because it is my e-birthday: please deleurk and say hello. There’s been a lot of traffic ’round these parts but very little activity in the comments, so please take the time to say hi. If you’re new here, introduce yourself! If you’re old here, tell me what your favourite Delicious Juice post is! Stroke my ego – it’s my birthday, and I’ll be a diva if I want to.

Okay, it’s not MY birthday, but you get the idea.

Hooray for 8 years of Delicious Juice Dot Com! Here’s hoping I never run out of things to say!

twenty five things

Mike tagged me over on Facebook, and since I was too lazy to think of anything to post today, I thought I would do as he asked.

Rules: Once you’ve been tagged, you are supposed to write a note with 25 random things, facts, habits, or goals about you. At the end, choose 25 people to be tagged.

The real challenge will be coming up with 25 things I haven’t already said, but here goes: Read the rest of this entry »

I normally don’t post these things, but all three of these cracked my shit up:

happy to see you

Josh – who may or may not have been making a Facebook profile for his cat – came across this and sent it to me:

Facebook found my secret penis. Naturally, it is huge.

Wanna see?

happy birthday, inanimate intangible object

Delicious Juice Dot Com is seven years old today. Hooray! A great many words have spewed forth from these fingers, and for some reason, you keep reading them. To all my readers past, present and future – thank you. Also, why. But mostly, thank you. :)

Seven year is a very long time!

save me, al gore

For several unsettling and globe-warming minutes this morning, I was the meat in a Porsche Cayenne/Original Hummer sandwich. My smug hippie self felt very superior (albeit a little apprehensive; I sort of expected the drivers of the ridiculous SUVs to jump out and start beating me with bibles and right-wing rhetoric at the stop light) on my scooter, especially since I had just filled the tank for $4.20 (duuuuude) and I was secure in my knowledge that my emissions, even if I had spent the entire night eating baked beans and cabbage rolls, would never come even remotely close to that of just one of the yuppie death machines boxing me in.

That may just be the most convoluted sentence I’ve ever written. Sweet!

Northern Voice was excellent. I’m very glad I swallowed my fear of people and went; it was really interesting and I met some cool people. My only wish for the event was that there were more opportunities to discuss stuff for non-important blogs – I thought the sessions and discussions were very centered on Blogs With a Purpose (advertising items or services or people, business blogs, specific-topic blogs) as opposed to those that exist for the pleasure of existing. Granted, I think I was in a very small minority (people who blog because if they don’t get words out in some way they will explode in a big sticky mess) as most of the attendees seemed to have themselves a Purpose. Also, the conference needed more video games. Hell, everything needs more video games.

Other than that though, I thought it was great. I’m already looking forward to next year, and I’d recommend it to pretty much anyone who has any sort of content on the internets at all. Good times!

And finally, Regrettable Things Ed Said Over the Weekend: “Ooh, she’s a GMILF!”
