The Web 2012
Several months ago, when it was announced that Facebook was purchasing Instagram, loyal IG users the world over quaked in fear over what travesties could befall their beloved service at the hand of the devil, Facebook.
For a while, it seemed our fears were for naught as nothing happened, good or bad.
Today was Nathan's first photo with Santa. Or should I say "photos"?
It was an interesting shoot. Thank you, Santa, for your patience.
I'm not entirely sure why I did it or completely certain what I'm going to do with it, but, last week, I caved and started a Tumblr account.
I had a dream the other night that my iPad developed a blemish.
It was a round spiderweb like crack and, when I pressed down in the middle, it functioned like the home button. Kinda strange. Sure, no one wants a cracked screen but at least it served a utilitarian purpose.
My coworker sent this to me today. I found it hilarious not only because of the forthright humor of it, but because I've seen Nathan strikes this very look semi regularly. In fact, if you were to add a bunch of dark hair, this could almost be Nathan.
We received a postcard in the mail yesterday from a local realtor advertising a recent sale they made in our neighborhood. The idea, I gather, is to show that they can actually make sales in our subdivision and that we should use them if we decide to sell our place.
I like to swear. I'm very good at it. I'm not talking Al Pacino level or anything. I mean, that dude can swear like nobody's business. I do strive to be like him, though.
Well, I did anyway. Until the point in time where Katie and I found out that she was pregnant. That lifetime of dedication to the fine art of verbal cursing came to a screeching halt. I'm told that kids are sponges and, whether you realize it or not, they pick up what those around them say and do and feel.
For several months going on a couple years now, people have been claiming that Google has quickly been devolving into a big, nasty, corporate monster capable of being fiendish invaders of privacy and web user rights, a state of being that they were renowned for decrying in other corporations. I wasn't really buying into it.
So that whole post earlier today about registering to comment here? Let's pretend it didn't happen, okay? Too many issues already in the short time I had it implemented. We'll just pray we can get normal commenting to work again.
Please note that if you don't see an entry form field for the CAPTCHA right away to try clicking anywhere in the box and, supposedly, something will appear. We'll see.
I've been having quite the issue with commenting lately on this here blog. What I thought was isolated to just one browser and operating system seems to actually be a bit more widespread affecting readers regardless of O.S., browser, and whether you're on a desktop/laptop vs. mobile device.
Sorry. No Snippet Wednesday this week. I will be back tomorrow with Snippet Thursday: The Reckoning. In the meantime...
That is all.
