Update Since this post went up over a year ago (on September 15, 2004 @ 07:40 actually), oddly enough it is the one that gets the most attempts at comment spam. Could the words comment and spam be some type of attractant to those neardowells and evil bad-doers that are trying to infect w(t)f with their crap and garbage? Could it be I have somehow upset the spam gods to the point where they swoop down weekly and try to tell about the newest latest greatest penis enlargement system? Or, and this is my thinking, are the spammers such retarded ass fucktards that the just keep trying to spread those dead urls through a system that obviously doesn’t let them pass?
christ. Comment? not here. email it to me (db at windthefrog dot net). Or don’t. I’m good either way.
This is something that I always read about, but felt left out because it never happened to me.
Until I installed WordPress.
It must be the comment system or something, but I’ve had my comments here and over there spammed a few times. On all counts, WordPress handled it deftly and nothing showed up, which was nice.
It’s not the fact that I got spammed, you see. It was the content. On all counts, it was about 4 or 5 URL’s for porn sites. Which begs the question; How desparate are you for clicks when you are spamming blogs? C’mon now people.
There have got to be better ways to make a few bucks off the internet then trying to collect the $.005 per click you are getting from pron sites, right? Don’t you have some old trickets and junk you can post up on eBay? Fill a page on your site with Amazon and Google ads? Set up a webcam to view your pet and charge a nickle to view? Something!
Or, you could also just go out, like the rest of us, and get a real job. You know, wake up at 5:30 every morning, hustle around to get the kids out the door so they don’t miss the bus, spend 2 hours driving 60 miles to the office and spend 8 hours listening in on meetings that never end, performing repetitive boring tasks again and spreading gossip. Then, spend another 2 hours driving home to rush around and get the kids fed, showered, homeworked and ready for bed. Then, get a blog to spend the last hour of your day bitching about your day, your life or your old spammer croonies.
Or not. It’s your call, but I expect you’ll do the right thing.
The price of gas
While on the drop, even with the threat of hurricane Rita, are still too high.
You see, here in California, our gas prices have soared to numbers never before seen or even imagined. Do you know why? Threats of storms on the gulf coast, and 1 storm that actually made landfall.
But, we don’t get our gas or oil from the gulf coast region!
You see, here in Sunny California, we are special. The fucktards at the California Air Resource Board (CARB) see to that. We have a ‘special’ formula for our gasoline. It’s not used in any other state, and we don’t export it. Oh yea, the formula changes from summer to winter too.
Since it is so special, we have to make it ourselves. So, nothing imported from Texas.
Of course you need to have some of that ‘black gold’ to produce the gasoline, right? Ours comes from the North Slope, not Texas.
So, my question to you greedy mother fucking oil companies is why am I still paying more than $3.00 a gallon for fuel when the weather that is affecting the south should not have an affect?
I’m all about making a profit, but I’m spending over $400 a month to the gas pumps right now, and really, I’m about fucking tired of it!

That is all.
Is it my birthday yet?
In case you were wondering, no, it already happened.
Still have guilt because you failed to get me a present?
I would guarantee that if you were to get this for me, all guilt would be erased and I would, in turn, be your bestest friend forever and give you a ride in the MINI.
