it's about damn time



By Paul Davidson, USA TODAY

One of the world's most notorious spam kingpins was arrested and charged with sending fraudulent bulk e-mail, Virginia Attorney General Jerry Kilgore said Thursday, one of the first such felony charges in the nation. He and his accomplice each face up to 20 years in jail and fines of up to $10,000.

Oh yeah, and my camera's broken. it won't rewind the film that's in it. I was out in the cold though, and I haven't tried it since I got it back into warm air.

This has been coming for a while though, it's been having troubles with rewinding. I really hope it's just because it's worn out (not likely), not because I fell in the mud with it last summer and it got dirt all in it and I didn't get it all out (likely).

So if it breaks, the good/bad news is I have to/get to buy another camera. Can't afford it, but want to. I'll probably get a DSLR or a really good Digital, and then get a K1000 for all my pentax lenses and my night shots and stuff.

My mind is blank.

No, that's what I'm telling you. Most of the time, I'm not thinking about anything in particular besides what's on the surface. If I'm reading/watching tv/playing video games/listening to the radio/cooking/anything, that's the only thing I'm thinking about. Not because I'm hard-core focused on it or anything, those tasks don't take up my whole mental capacity or anything. I just don't sit and think about stuff, analyze stuff, or any of that. Tandra likes to start conversations by asking me what's on my mind, and she gets frustrated and half the time doesn't believe me when I say "nothing". Seriously, I think about nothing most of the time.

At home anyway. At work I'm thinking about all kinds of stuff besides work while I'm working. That's odd. I never realized that before.

I don't like cooked tomatoes of any kind (ketchup is ok but spaghetti sauce is not) but I do like them crisp and fresh and cold. I don't like coconut or any kind of nuts except honey roasted peanuts, and almonds, but only if the almonds are in chocolate. I hate pecans and walnuts and cashews and stuff like that. The coconut thing rules out anything that's pina colada flavored.

I like real cinnamon as a spice but I absolutely detest artificial cinnamon flavoring. They're nothing alike.

I like artificial strawberry flavoring, but real strawberries are usually a little too tart for my taste.

I don't like country music but I do like bluegrass, a lot of folk music, and old fashioned gospel. And I like barbershop quartets.

I have lots of books on my bookshelf that I haven't read. I decided to quit playing video games and start reading a lot more, but then I bought another video game.

You know what I hate? I hate when people fail to realize that a preposition is not a good word to end a sentence with.
