Midweek Thoughts – Part 5

450px-IPad-02

Good news everyone! It’s time for the fifth installment of Midweek Thoughts.

Last week, Apple announced an extra-large iPod Touch that they renamed “iPad.” For a mere $499 to $829 (depending on features) you can own a 9.7 inch tablet “computer” that doesn’t multitask, support Adobe Flash, or even provide a USB port. And if you decide you want to load pictures from your camera, you’ll have to purchase a special camera adapter. I bet that adapter is really pretty and shiny. Great job naming the useless product too, Apple. Now every time women see an iPad they’ll be reminded of feminine hygiene products. Yay.

Sometimes when I order a bunch of stuff from Amazon, they’ll randomly ship one of the items through Fedex. This annoys me because then I get stuck waiting for two different delivery guys. But on the bright side, Fedex has never mangled a package of mine, so I’m fairly confident that my nifty new cooler will arrive safely.

The Fedex guy was just here delivering a package, but it wasn’t for me. Darn it! Their website claims my package is out for delivery. Are they really dispatching two different trucks to the same location? I guess that explains why their rates are so high.

The second Fedex guy was just here. Now I’m happy.

Pop Pop Pop… popchips

Last summer I found something amazing at Target. It was a brand of chips I had never seen before. These chips weren’t fried, they weren’t even baked, but they were popped! What were they called you ask? Why, popchips of course!

I loved them immediately. One serving of these delicious chips only have 120 calories and 4 grams of fat. Basically, an entire bag has approximately the same calorie and fat content as one candy bar.

Shortly thereafter, I began ordering popchips by the case from Amazon.com. I loved this snack so much that I would go around and tell my friends and family members that they needed to try popchips too. One handful and they were hooked.

These days, three of my sisters, my brother-in-law and my dad are all ordering popchips by the case from Amazon.com.  Here are some pictures I took from around the office today.

There are seven different flavors: original, barbecue, cheddar, sour cream and onion, sea salt and vinegar, salt and pepper, and parmesan garlic. (Barbecue is my favorite.) To find a retailer near you that carries popchips visit http://popchips.com. You can also order them directly from their online store or at Amazon.

This blog entry is making me hungry. I think it’s time for some popchips!

Dear Internet

internet

Dear Internet,

I’m writing to complain about all the time I am wasting on you. When I wake in the morning, my first urge is not to eat breakfast, but rather check my Facebook. I am disgusted by the addictive nature of this social networking site and demand an apology… right after I check the latest status updates.

Furthermore, I am outraged by Amazon.com’s low low prices. This causes me to spend more money than I probably should, because shopping there is so easy, convenient and affordable.

Thanks to sites like Newegg, Tom’s Hardware, CNET, Engadget and Gizmodo, I find myself wasting hours staring, drooling, and lusting after the latest tech gear. You ought to be ashamed of yourselves – blatantly parading the latest and greatest tech toys, and filling my mind with fantasies of a mansion full of all that wonderful stuff.

And because of despicable sites like Google and Wikipedia, I now have constant access to information. I endlessly find myself having questions that need to be answered, such as “Which episodes of The Simpsons did Conan O’Brien write?”, “What is Aaron Rodgers middle name?”, “What is the scientific name of the almond?” It’s a miracle that I get any sleep at all!

So Internet, in closing I just want to say, you suck!

Sincerely,

Mr Nethead – Your Biggest Fan

Hello 2010!

It’s a new year. But it’s not just a new year, it’s a new decade. It’s a time for fresh starts, new beginnings, hope for the future and of course some New Year’s Resolutions!

Now most people tend to set unrealistic goals, and because of that, give up on their resolutions by mid-February. I’m not going to to do that though. I intend to pace myself with a nice set of goals that I really feel I have a good chance of keeping.

In 2010 I resolve to:

Continue not smoking. That’s right, I have never smoked in my life. Do I feel tempted to do so? Not at all. Thus, this goal is a perfect New Year’s resolution.

Continue enjoying my recliner. My recliner is something special. It reclines very far. It’s very comfortable. I can sit in it for hours on end and my butt doesn’t even complain!

Watch more TV. I’m paying $135 a month for cable. But between Netflix, Facebook, my computers, Wii, PS3 and texting my friends, there just doesn’t seem to be enough time to watch TV!

Eat cookies. I love cookies. I intend to eat many in 2010! Are you going to eat cookies in 2010? If not, you’re a weirdo and I’m not sure that I’m comfortable being around you.

Eat a carrot. It will be tough, but I think I can do it.

See a squirrel scampering about during the summer time. I might even wave and say, “Hi squirrel!”

Listen to music. Hey, I’m listening to music right now. That means I’ve already kept this resolution. I am awesome!

Practice making the letter Z in cursive. That’s a tough one, especially if it’s a capital Z.

Place 50 orders at Amazon.com. I placed 42 in 2009. Here’s an interesting tidbit; 2002 was the first year I ordered from Amazon. I had 4 orders that year.

Eat PopChips every month this year. Mmmm… PopChips.

Wow, making this list of resolutions was a lot of hard work. I think I will go reward myself with cookies… and PopChips… Mmmm.
