Bullet Sunday 193

Posted on Sunday, July 25th, 2010

Dave!Here I am in the Peach State of Georgia, where it's time once again for Bullet Sunday. Apparently I'm now in an area which is not included in the "97% of Americans" that AT&T's cellular network professes to cover, so Bullet Sunday is about all I got! Thank heavens for WiFi.

• Weather! Hot with a chance of hot humidity and hot thunderstorms? Well, let's just say I don't plan on spending a lot of time outdoors while I'm here...

Weather is HOT!

• Wheaton! While at Comic-Con, I posted a photo of Wil Wheaton to my Flickr stream. After responding to @Whall making a Stand By Me joke about it, I mentioned that I had met Wil Wheaton twice, and wasn't going to stand in line for two hours to meet him again. For this, I got called "bullshit" on by some random stranger, and was told that "Standing in line at a Star Trek convention for a two second autograph doesn't count as 'meeting Wil Wheaton'."

Well, whatever... while I do have an autographed photo of Wesley Crusher that I was happy to stand in line for, that's not what I was talking about. Where I "met" Wil Wheaton was while he was an evangelist touring with NewTek, and it was hardly a "two second autograph." In fact, all I did was talk to him, I didn't even get an autograph at all. Or a photo. Though Wheaton did appear in the background of one of the photos I took of Kiki Stockhammer...


Bazinga! I'd mention that I stood in the airport security line out of San Diego with Paul Sr. of West Coast Choppers (from the TV show American Chopper) yesterday, but you probably wouldn't believe that either. Apparently I have nothing better to do than sit around and invent stories of chance encounters with famous people.

• Waffles! There is not a single Waffle House in all of Washington State (the closest is in COLORADO!), which means the only time I get to eat at one is when I'm traveling. This sucks, but at least I have something to look forward to...

Waffle House Dinner

The food is (relatively) inexpensive, tastes good, and available 24 hours. What more could you ask for?

• Wobble! When I was at the San Diego Zoo the other day, I was wandering through the new Elephant exhibit and came across an elephant dancing to some music that was playing nearby (you can barely hear it in the background there, as my iPhone doesn't have the best microphone)...

Rock on, Tantor! Though a part of me is kind of sad at the idea that he might be wobbling around because he's bored in his cage and doesn't have anything better to do. San Diego Zoo is better than most at providing nice habitats for their animals to live in, but it's still a cage at the end of the day.

• Watch! They keep adding cool bits to the TRON: Legacy trailer, which only makes me want to see the film more than ever. December is so far away...

They've youthed Jeff Bridges! And did a really good job of it! I hope the movie lives up to even a fraction of the hype that's building around it.

• Web! I hope that Flash videos in my previous two bullets didn't crash on you! For anybody who says that Mac users who whine about Flash are stuck in the past, and Flash has been much improved and runs perfectly on the Mac, I beg to differ. It's still the bug-ridden pile of bloated FAIL! it's always been, and still crashes all the time, as I can testify to because it happened again just today...

Flash Crash Report

Flash just can't die fast enough.

And now... I guess I really should get back to work.

    I’m not sure I’m uncool enough to get excited about “Tron.” Should I watch the first one and see what I think?

  2. Poppy says:

    Why are you spending your time defending your life to a random stranger?

    We thought we saw Paul Sr. somewhere this weekend, so I’m glad you actually saw him.

    This weather is ridiculous. How am I supposed to ever go outside?!

  3. Sue says:

    No wonder people in Washington are so depressed… no waffles!! I have a waffle iron myself, but nothing beats getting breakfast made for you any time of the day!!

  4. Sybil Law says:

    I totally forgot what I was going to say after watching Tantor swaying!! I love elephants!

  5. martymankins says:

    The move from Flash to HTML5/H.264 can’t come soon enough. Chrome is the only browser (so far) that will only crash the tab/session that hit the ill-fated Flash crash.

    Some people trash Waffle House as some sort of gone-wrong diner. I agree with you. It’s a great place to grab some tasty food. And they serve grits with just about every breakfast meal.

  6. Ren says:

    At least now when Flash crashes it doesn’t take Safari down with it. On my Linux system at work, Flash doesn’t crash nearly as often as on my Mac at home, but when it does — bye, bye Firefox. Thankfully, Firefox does a fine job of restoring all of my tabs on restart.

    Now if I could just figure out how to keep Flash on Linux from locking my sound card so that nothing else can play sounds until I restart Firefox. Ugh.

    I didn’t see anybody famous on my recent trip to Vancouver… just a couple of asses who feel it it far more important to put their belt, shoes and jacket on as their stuff comes out of the X-ray machine while everybody else’s tubs are backing up than it is to be a polite traveler (by my definition) and move their tub to one of the many, many nearby seats.

  8. kilax says:

    Neither I nor Steven have seen the original Tron but the new movie looks so cool! We added Tron to our Netflix Queue, and of course it’s a “long wait.” I guess that is what happens!

  9. Hilly Sue says:

    So wait…that time you banged Liz Hurley? Was that a lie too???? Oh the humanity!

    Ahem. I like Paul Sr. And waffles.
