Hmm.. This seems kinda redundant.

Something I found in my internet-browsing-adventures while holding my son..
It starts out with an article about govenerment grants, how the govennment can help you get out of debt with your bills, and a guy who has taken time out of his VERY busy schedule, wearing a question-mark suit somewhat reminescent of The Riddler, to talk about it 'today'.
After clicking this link you will find an opening page that promises 'free' money from the government in order to help pay some bills. With this recession and Christmas just around the corner, I can see where it might be tempting for some hard-up parents to check further into this. Ah okay, I checked myself. *sigh* Sue me.

After choosing the category of which you need the Government's help with, you get transferred automatically to a 'Buy Me Now for More Information' ad.

Okay.. is it just me or does this seem a little twisted? If someone has gotten to the point where they need money from the government to pay off their bills so they can start working towards getting out of debt.. Do you think they really should be buying random books telling them how to ask the government to help them pay off their bills? I dunno.. Maybe I'm just overreacting, but it just seems like if someone can't pay their bills, they probably don't have extra money to buy random books.
Ahah.. Time to go clean the fish tank. :) Got my daughter a fish for Christmas!

Crash and Burn!

Okay.. maybe just crash.. Well.. As anyone who might have been keeping up with my blog has noticed (ahem.. emphasize on *might*) I have been absent for a while in my blogging adventures, here's why..
For some reason Blogger has been crashing my browser every time I try to access my blog.. Causing a horrific and sometimes gut-wrenching response as I watch every browser window slowly (and I mean slowly) diminish.. Including the super long cover email I've just written out for a job-position.
On to other news..
Game production has been put on hold until current sponsor issues are resolved. Lets hope this happens sooner then later.. I'm starting to have withdrawal pains. :)
Christmas is coming up and so is the new year of 2009. Time to start pulling out your resolution lists everyone! I, for one, am already working on one full of expectations.. Pshaw, who needs a nagging wife when your already being one for yourself? :)
Games. I am still on my simulation-game craze and seem to have found a new inlet to feed my addiction. www.playedonline.com has all types of games (though I have yet to really delve into the database) and I'm sure will keep me busy in my down-time while holding the son. Ah speak of the little guy..
Wellp, the son calls!
