My Addiction

This is a cry for help. I am addicted to deals, more specifically, I'm addicted to free giveaways. Today I saw this free razor promotion through slickdeals and I promptly signed up without thinking twice. That's the moral hazard of having a dedicated junk mail account. Anyhow, this is what the sign up page look like. If you pay careful attention to the language, you might find it somewhat weird, but then again, I didn't pay that much attention.

When I pressed the submit button, I realized my mistake:
Ken: haha this is so stupid
Eric: what
Ken: well, i am so stupid
Ken: i just don't look at what slickdeals i do anymore
Eric: huh?
Ken: i think i signed up for a free women's razor
Ken: haha
Eric: HAHA
Ken: they are usually guy's ones though
Eric: yea i know
Ken: and the promo page didn't say anything
Eric: thats pretty funny
Eric: i wuold blog about that
Ken: until i submitted and there's this woman raising her hands
Ken: i'm thinking "great, why is it a woman?"

So if anyone needs a razor in 4-6 weeks, let me know. I'll be sure never to touch it.

She-Bear Alert!

Last Wednesday night as I was walking home, I was attacked by a pack of she-bears! I never knew Ann Arbor was a town with a bear infestation, but after that night, I will never walk home alone again. The she-bears were apparently lead by a strange bald man walking around with a staff in hand, I tried to chase after him after the attack, but he proved to be more fleet footed than he looked.

Anyhow, even though I escaped with my life, I did suffer some battle scars. Here's the first one:

To the untrained eye, this might look like a second-degree burn, like one would get if he didn't use an oven mitt when taking a pizza out of the oven. But I assure you that this is no stupid accident, it was a vicious claw mark from a she-bear!

The wound evolved in the days ahead and is looking quite manly of late. Darn you bears!

bubble gum podcasts

Now that I'm back in school, I walk 1.1 miles everyday to and from school. This gives me about 15 minutes (x2) to put to good use. So I've been trying to find good podcasts to listen to, but when I went on iTunes, this is what I saw:

Osteen and Ophrah dominate the podcast world! This is sad. It's almost as sad as the current state of our economy. I wonder how the health and wealth Gospel will do in a recession. Hmm ....

Picasa finds Jesus!

Picasa came out with this amazing face recognition feature which lets you quickly tag people in your photos by analyzing your photo albums. I must admit that this is pretty amazing (though scary at the same time), but it's completely useless to me because I don't have a real photo album on picasa. All I have are photos I have used on my previous blog entries. So when I tested this feature on my photos, here is what came up:

I quickly tagged "Jesus" as the first entry ... HAHA. That picture came from this entry.
