'Tis once again time to unleash the bullets on this fine Sunday evening!
• Export. It's kind of an annual tradition for me to leave the country for my birthday. It started as a way to escape people wanting to throw me a party, but eventually just became habit (last year I went to Oslo). I had made a decision to skip this year and save the money, but eventually changed my mind. The crappy economy means airfare and hotels can be found cheaper, negating the horrendously shitty value of the US dollar abroad. It's still very expensive, but at least it doesn't require me to sell a kidney. The problem is that I only have a week, which really isn't enough time to explore any of my dream destinations like India or Australia, so where? Perhaps someplace I've been to before so there's no pressure to play tourist and I can just goof around for a few days...
• Dave Britain. And so Davedon and Davenburgh are on for March...
LONDON: I will be in London March 19-23rd & 25th. Since weekends seem to be easier for a blogger-meet, I'm thinking an early dinner on Saturday the 21st would be nice. If you'd rather meet up for lunch or dinner some other time, just let me know!
EDINBURGH: I will be in Edinburgh March 24-25 (UPDATE: This has been changed from the original Sunday date so as not to conflict with "Mothering Sunday" in the UK). I'm thinking we could have a blogger-meet after working hours on Tuesday the 24th.
If meeting up with some bloggers in either city sounds good to you, just drop me an email... my address is in the sidebar on every page!
• Twenty-Five. This weekend is the 25th anniversary of the Apple Macintosh personal computer. I find it sweetly ironic that a fucktard like Michael Dell was trashing Apple publicly only a few years ago, saying that the company should close up shop and give their money back to the stockholders. You can hardly blame him though... with Apple out of the picture, his ugly-ass Dell computer crap wouldn't look so tragic by comparison. But thanks to continuing innovations with Mac OS X and their massive hits with iPods and iPhones, Apple is doing just fine. And trading about $80 higher per share than Dell. Many congratulations to my favorite fruit-themed computer company!
• OBAMA! I had been passing along a link to some hilarious products shots for the Obama Action Figure, and was dismayed to find that they've since been removed. Fortunately, I still have a few of them archived on my MacBook. I'm going to post them here so I won't lose them, because they're pretty bad-ass...
Seriously, wouldn't you feel better about having a president with ninja skills?
Obama getting ready to pop a cap in some Congressman's ass for not voting properly.
The Force is strong with Obama-Wan Kenobi!
A president who isn't afraid of taking care of bidness!
I wants me the Obama doll... but the DID Corporation site doesn't offer much help.
And thus concludes another Bullet Sunday. Next week my bullets will be fired from Germany, where hopefully I'll have donuts to blog about...
I love comments! However, all comments are moderated, and won't appear until approved. Are you an abusive troll with nothing to contribute? Don't bother. Selling something? Don't bother. Spam linking? Don't bother.
Can two of us fit in your bed in Europe? I promise to behave.
You so need a vacation!
Now if only you could get there without flying…
Hopefully it’ll all be problem free for you!
I want an OBAMA!!!! That would look so cool in my office!
President Obama KICKS ASS!!!!!
Also, have we cleared up the birthday issue? I’m 3/19. Are we twins? 1971. Talk to me.
Hmm if there’s room, I promise to NOT behave…
I can’t even begin to describe the feelings of patriotism stirring within my heart to see our new President as a Jedi. May the Force be with you, Obama!
Squeeeee for Dave-don!
Umm..you will be wearing the uniform – right? ;o)
Will try to make Davedon or Daveburgh – unfortunately I didn’t get the job in Edinburgh so it’ll be a journey for me but at least I have 2 months to get something sorted 🙂 .
See you all in Edinburgh!!
I *so* want the Obama Jedi action figure.
One day you will come to Australia and I will be very happy. Lucky bloggers in the UK.
wonder what is wrong with me that i actually enjoy your bullets every week. and i really want a ninja obama.
Lived in Edinburgh for a year – shame I’m not there now! Eat at Monster Mash if you get a chance.
I don’t care why you started doing it, leaving the country every year for your birthday is fuckiing genius. I wish I’d thought of it years ago.
Good news: You will find the dollar MUCH stronger especially against the pound. STronger than it’s been in years. London is actually a bargain destination now. The dollar is only weak against the Euro now, but then so is everything else. Go ahead and buy some real estate in London while you are at it. .
bad news: I will be in Munich SAME WEEKEND. Starkbierzeit. So I can’t come see you in London…would love to give you a tour of my favorite pubs. I’ll drunk text you since at least we will be in similar time zone!
That second Obama pic, adding a fro and some facial hair, would be a spitting image for Jules.
Anyone that thinks Obama is going to take away their guns needs these action figures.
I want an Obama! I want to go to London!
Wah! Now I must go cry.
(But enjoy your week!)
I wish I could go back to London. I love it there! I hope you have a great time – especially wherever you decide to go for your birhtday! 🙂
OMG!!! I am SO there in London!!! I am gonna bunk with Penelope and be there. Count me in?
There is a teeny tiny possibility that I might actually be in England for Davedon. Those Obama action figures are all kinds of awesome.
It’s like a unicorn. An impossibly delightful thing. Dave in London.
I can’t begin to describe how emotional I am right now. It’s like all the lights have gone on.
Okay. I’ve become a crazy person…
Hey! I have family in Edinburgh! Sure, I have no idea who they are, their names or how we’re related…though I’m assuming some form of cousin…and who knows? Maybe they read your blog!
Anyway, thanks for the well wishes and hope you have a great trip!
Those Obama dolls are great! Thanks for sharing them.
Dude. Davedon. Wish I could be there. Have an awesome time!
Happy Birthday and enjoy your vacation! Hugs and love to you, and thank you for everything you do to make this world a better place.
