Creaping Time

Just wanted to post something...anything today since I'm in a particularly good mood.


Today's my birthday and I got something that I didn't think I'd get: an iPod. It's a Nano I think and it's got 16GB of space on it; it's supposed to hold something like 4,000 songs on it. Wow!!

My wife surprised me with it today after dialysis. It's still charging up through the computer I'm working on right now. I'll start ripping some of my CD's onto the PC tomorrow and figuring out how to get them over to the iPod.

And the noteworthy part of this is that the whole family have their own iPods - mini-Mikey (my daughter) has a Nano from her 14th birthday, my wife has an iPod Shuffle she won at work last year in an office contest, and now I have one too. What's remarkable about this is that all of us now have 'modern technology' for our music needs; it was only three years ago that we decided to get with it and start buying CDs instead of cassettes.

It's nice to have something cool to offset the creaping aspect of old age.....

Little Willy?

Why am I not surprised?

Obama loosens missile technology controls to China
President Obama recently shifted authority for approving sales to China of missile and space technology from the White House to the Commerce Department -- a move critics say will loosen export controls and potentially benefit Chinese missile development.

The president issued a little-noticed "presidential determination" Sept. 29 that delegated authority for determining whether missile and space exports should be approved for China to Commerce Secretary Gary Locke.

Is Obama now looking to follow in Bill Clinton's footsteps?

Yeah.....that's it Barack.....keep going.

You're Joking....Right?

(via PDA)

President Obama is the winner of the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize.

Is this a joke?

Next thing we'll see is Nobel Prizes coming as a bonus for ordering 20-piece Chicken McNuggets......that's what it'll be worth from now on.

Don't Touch That Dial!

Hey!! Don't touch that dial!

(For those of you on the 'young' side: don't touch that digital remote control!!)

Still getting settled in here at Casa del Mad Mikey. Our biggest concern is finding place(s) for our stuff that would normally go on bookshelves; we're going to go for 'nice' shelfing and we're taking our time in selecting the right stuff. No cinderblocks and boards here.

As for this blog....well, it's still here. I've be having trouble with the archives and just haven't devoted enough time to rectifiying the problem(s).

In politics: President Obama......geez, what can you say about a man that's not batting very well since he's been in office. Seems to be the same crap: campaign speeches that promise everything and then turning around to see that his *cough* administration is falling apart like a sand castle at high tide. More on that later if I have the patience to look into it more closely.

Until then, I leave you with this: write a song or poem about Mad Mikey and how I've improved your live(s) by your reading my blog. (500 words or less)

About Me

Who is Mikey?
Mikey playing with digital camera

Mikey is a forty-something U.S. Navy veteran that is currently taking a break from being a full-time student at UC San Diego studying electrical engineering.

He's also a husband, a father, a former Independent/Democrat and is currently dealing with dialysis and getting on the national kidney transplant list.

The words written here are his opinions and his observations on the stupid things in life. If you do not like them or do not agree with them: tough squishies. In America, you're entitled to Freedom of Speech not Freedom to Not Be Offended.

Help Mikey by not being part of the problem and instead, be part of the solution so that he doesn't have to comment on your sorry actions.
