Having A Slow Day?

Well...I just got back from the store...I had to get the Wife a late Christmas present...THIS little baby....she loves it...it's in the kitchen charging right now....THEN the fun will begin...I'll give it a week...maybe two....before she starts using that damn thing as a coaster...or paperweight....I guess it depends on which room she leaves it in....

Anyway, I've had a bit of a surf around the blogosphere today, and it looks like things are a little slow....people still haven't recovered from the Holidays, I guess....well, listen up...2003 is GONE...this is a NEW YEAR....get off your asses and BLOG!...ain't no one gonna do it for ya, you know....so....enough pep talk...I figured a nice motivational song might get you all in the correct mood to blog like demons.....so, I thought of a little Thorogood song that always make ME drive a little faster....so...bored?...tired?....suicidal?....turn your speakers up...and CLICK HERE....boogie, chillun...now, get back to bloggin'....

Update...I just realized that some of you will want to sing along...so, here are the lyrics...;)

On the night I arrived my daddy said "Sakes Alive,
He's the meanest one that we've had yet!"
Teethed on tin and weened on gin
I was nobody's teacher's pet
I grew up rough and mean in my early teens
And I didn't want to go to school
I called no man "Sir" and work was a dirty word
My biggest kick was breakin' the rules

Now when you see me comin', get away
The one's that didn't ain't around today
The sweetest piece of lovin' any girl ever had
I'm here to tell ya boys I was born to be bad
Born, born to be bad
I was born, born to be bad

Now when I reached 21 I had that ole ramblin' itch
Breakin' little girls hearts I tore the world apart
A guitar-playin' son of a...

Born to be bad
That's the story of my life
Yeah, doin' things wrong is my way of doin' things right

Now when I'm gray and old and my story's told
I know what the people will say
They'll be glad to see me go
But the little girls will know
I was bad til my dyin' day

So when you see me comin', get away
The one's that didn't ain't around today
The sweetest piece of lovin' any girl ever had
I'm here to tell ya boys I was born to be bad
Born, born to be bad
I was born, born to be bad

Now when I'm old and gray and I've had my day
I know what the people will do
They'll be glad to see me go
But the little girls will know
I was bad til the day I was through

So when you see me comin', get away
The one's that didn't ain't around today
The sweetest piece of lovin' any girl ever had
I'm here to tell ya boys I was born to be bad
Born, born to be bad
I was born, born to be bad

I have a Palm, somewhere. It has been at least 2 years since I quit using it. It is way easier to type directly onto my laptop or to take notes.

Hope your wife finds it more useful than I did!

You're a funny dude, Eric. I mean that in the best possible way. If your blog did not exist, someone would have to invent it.

I love my Palm - couldn't live without it! When my first one died, I went nuts until I got another one. I use it for work constantly. It's got my brain in it ;)

Like the song too. I was getting sleepy - now I'm wide awake.

...still listening to the song, bad boy.

My palm has been gathering dust for three years. (If only I valued organization a LITTLE more...)
