As a result of this post made late last night and the wonderful and straightforward comments I have received from people, I decided to turn off the news this morning and instead turn on Uncle Buck. Which really makes me want to have two pug puppies right now, one named Buck and one named Chanice.

So thank you to everyone that perked me up in those comments and to everyone that wishes me well and sends good energy, because I really appreciate it. Hopefully I can come out of my fog some more today.

It's the Cat in the Hat's 50th Birthday, and because he's so happy about it, he'll donate one book to a low-income kid for every birthday card he receives. Just click on the picture below to see what it's all about, and then follow the cat to the card builder. You can choose your card and colour it any way you want. Then, choose your name and state (Canucks, make sure to choose "Canada" from the bottom of the list) and send it on its way. You'll make one overgrown, hat-wearing cat, and one special kid very, very happy.

Remember, it's absolutely free, you're not signing up for anything, and it only takes about a minute of your time (well, more if you're picky about your colours like I was). How often do you get a chance to help someone in need that's absolutely pain-free and actually kinda fun? Now get to it! :)


Hat tip to trevd and pagerbear for this!


Sorry I'm late on this one!

Who's the bane of YOUR existence? Surely there's someone who pisses you off in such a huge way that it merits flogging, at least. 'Round here, we call that person a RAT BASTARD. Who is the person you most want to rip a new asshole for whatever reason? Go ahead - now's your chance to put them on blast. Start commenting, and have fun gettin' your hate on - and out. IP logging is off and anonymous commenters WERE welcome, but I've had to disable it since I've gotten six tons of bullshit spam comments lately. Sorry about that.

Go on - vent your spleen...

How to Make Sure Your Computer Will Automatically Update to the Earlier Daylight Saving Time

From the desk of italiangm:
To see if your computer is ready, check your machine's DST patch level with the Daylight Saving Time patch tester at

Developed by Jeff Williams of the University of Minnesota, it uses JavaScript to detect patch status. If you see a green circle, you're good to go.
If not:

The link below takes you to instructions about how to make sure you computer(s) will have the update necessary to make it automatically change to Daylight Saving Time (since DST begins earlier than usual this year). If you automatically receive Windows Updates, though, you might already have received the update you need.
