The Simpson's donuts at 7-Eleven are quite tasty.  They're just like the ones in the show, big and covered with lots of bright pink frosting with sprinkles.  Yum.  Oh wait..... heart, stopping.... ah, ok, better now.  Time for another donut.

The other day after work I went by the local Kwik-E-Mart, which normally would only exist in the Simpsons show. But 7-Eleven decided to convert 20 of them around the nation to Kwik-E-Marts to show that they have a sense of humor (and to cash in on the marketing for the upcoming Simpsons movie). The place was packed, there was a line to get in. Most of the people weren't buying things, they were just hanging out and talking like it was a bar or something. It was very silly. I wanted to buy some Buzz Cola but they were all out. I did get a Squishee though.

But I do think Apple is rather cruel for not telling anyone that there were plenty, so you didn't have to camp out to get one. I checked Apple's site Sunday night and they were still in stock in several local stores.

Anyway they are sucky slow on the internet, we're talking old school modem speeds here, yuck. But they are pretty and shiny!

A little video I made of the burn at Burning Man 2001.

For fun I wrote a little Live Journal client for internet enabled cell phones.  It will let you read your friend's journals from your phone. 
Give it a try, just go to the browser on your phone and go to ljroadie.com to download it.
It's a work in progress and I have I have more features to add (like posting), but it works!  Comments on it are appreciated.
Note: It's best to use with unlimited data plans because reading journals on your phone can use up bandwidth.

We just had a little earthquake.  The floor was moving and the book shelves were rattling.  It lasted about 15 seconds.  Luckily nothing fell.  Made for some evening excitement though.

Today: toasters

Everyone needs a Radio-Toaster.
If you travel a lot you may need this one for you car.
A toaster for the dad who has everything (or nothing).
Ok, this one I actually own and I love it!

Ok, back to work making cell phones safe for mankind.
