Cinco de Mayo

Yesterday was Cinco de Mayo. I went down to Tempe and met up with Josh, Suhrid and Lance. We paid the $5 cover charge to get into Macayo’s and walked around and had a couple of beers. Well, Josh, Lance, and I did. We pretty much just hung around the patio and checked out the hotties (there were more than enough to go around). After that we met up with Sakeena, Marcella and April and just hung out at the parking lot. There was a local band playing, and they did some pretty decent covers of some cool songs. I had a couple of Margaritas and by the time I was done, I was… well… drunk. We then went over to Fatburger where we got something to eat. I wasn’t sober enough to drive, so I decided I would just sleep in my car until I was. Suhrid drove Josh and I over to the parking lot. Oh yeah, before that. On our way there we saw these girls who were wearing pretty much next to nothing. Bikini’s and g-strings and… wow… yeah. They were standing outside McDuffy’s I think… or maybe it was Margarita Rocks. I can’t remember. Anyway, I got to my car and slept there for an hour and a half. I was sober after that and drove home. But I’m really hungover this morning… getting too old for this… not in college anymore…

The Internet is full of crap

Today’s Forecast

You’re still quite focused on your sweetheart, and the feeling is mutual. Have dinner out, and don’t be afraid to talk about the future. You won’t be the only person at that candlelit table who’s been thinking in terms of permanence.

It’s all good, on both sides of that romantic candlelit table. Don’t be afraid to bring up the topic of what tomorrow might bring. You’re on the same page, so if you’re with someone and it all feels right, don’t worry. The stars have arranged for romance, permanence and all good things. If you’re not currently attached, make tracks for the one place you know your kindred spirits gather. You’re set up to win at love, but you can’t win if you don’t play.

How much more inane can these stupid things get? Like I actually give a shit about my stupid randomly-generated, made-up horoscope. Does anyone take this crap seriously?

The internet is so full of crap. Stupid angsty teenagers writing bad poetry and dumb, insipid topics on message boards like “what shoes did you wear today lol”. I was checking out my Friendster profile and I see a topic on the message board: “Make a word with the first letter of the person’s name above you”. WTF?! WHO GIVES A CRAP?! I guess the people who do that kind of shit probably have such a low IQ that doing this kind of task might actually prove to be a mental workout for them. For crying out loud…

I don’t mean to sound like an asshole, but seriously… I really think there is a limit for how much pointless and useless crap a person can take.

RSS Feed

I set up an RSS Feed yesterday, for this website. I know there are tons of bloggers out there who write about many amazing topics like what their cat threw up yesterday. Then they even go so far as to set it up on RSS. I can’t claim to be completely innocent because I have also written about some really inane topics. But anyway, in my defense, I can at least say that I’ve written this entire website from scratch, and this includes setting up the RSS. I mainly did it because I wanted to do it for fun, and also because I wanted to link to it from my Friendster profile.Furthermore this website is primarily for me to keep a record of my thoughts and for my friends and family to see what’s going on my life.

The feed can be reached at http://www.vivin.net/rss/. You can also supply parameters to the feed. I currently have only one parameter, which lets you specify the number of entries you would like to retrieve. For example, http://www.vivin.net/rss/?num=10 returns the ten latest entries in the journal. If no parameters are specified, the feed returns five.

Please note (for those who are new to RSS) that you need an RSS Reader to be able to access the feed. Otherwise, you will simply get an XML file if you click on the link. I use Sage, which is an RSS Reader Extension for the Firefox browser.
