once again, something new from the good people over at google. google suggest will let you type in search terms and it'll intuitively complete words and phrases for you, based on others' searches. try the test version out here, i think it's the best thing since sliced bread. (although sliced bread is, in my opinion, slightly overrated.)

i hope everyone had a great christmas! i got a new computer chair (much needed), some dvd's, a new cologne, and some new clothes that i still need to go shopping for. not too many gifts, but i just got that huge tv so who's complaining? oh, and if you do that thing with the candles instead, um... hope ya had fun, i guess.

christmas is nearly upon us! all my friends are starting to come back from college, so i'm hoping for a fun few weeks coming up. if you're in the area, give me a call... and if i don't answer, it's because i'm working on fixing my wierd sleeping schedule, so just leave a message.

i'm searching for a new cologne. i'm looking for something kinda tropical (dare i say fruity) but not feminine or strong. my friend zack from shytown recommended clinique happy for men... mary and elliot found one that they said was totally "me" but it was some long name that i easily forgot. so, send any ideas my way. oh, and money is always nice too.

i've added episodes 64-68 of call for help which aired last week to the episode download, so go ahead and check that out.

HDNet rocks... for some reason this really impressed me...

usually when you send an email to a television network, it's like sending it into a big void. maybe someone will read it if you're lucky, and if you're really lucky, it's not some intern who will just scrap it. and if you're unbelievably lucky, you might get a response within a few weeks or even months.

i was really liking HDNet's sunday morning airings of smallville. they had started playing the show from the first episode many times a week, but i missed the original airing so I was outta the loop. then, i noticed they had started playing it from the first episode again, 2 episodes at a time every sunday morning. this has been going on for about three weeks now, but i was paranoid that since it's such an odd timeslot, they could easily change it to something else and i'd be out in the cold. so i decided to send them an email about how happy i am with this scheduling. check this out:

not 15 min. later they actually responded to my email (and it wasn't an auto response either). very nice... they've just made a loyal viewer even more loyal. (this also happens to be the channel where i get all my high-def movie trailers from.)
