Christmas Shopping

I am going to go shopping for Christmas presents today. Even though I am not in the holiday spirit. I don't have many to buy for, mainly my wife. We drew my older brother so I gotta get him something too. The wife is getting some perfume, Happy by Clinique, and a cookbook. These are the gifts she pretty much hinted at. I also have to find her a gift she is not expecting. This evening we have the company Christmas party. Fine food and spirits.

The Blogfathers Part 1

I have decided to write a post about the way I came to be a reader of blogs, and who inspired me to start my own. Don't let the fact that I don't blog mess with you too much. I guess I just wasn't that inspired. I am mostly a blog reader not a blog writer.

Vox Popoli

Vox is how I discovered the world of Blogs. I was on Worldnetdaily, because of Ann Coulter, and I read an aricle which linked to his blog, and that is where it started. Vox is arrogant, not suffering fools. He is highly intelligent and even has his own wikipedia entry(now deleted). I visit his blog every day. He is usually destroying liberal's arguments, not just bashing them. His wife Spacebunny can be seen from time to time around the blog neighborhood. She will defend him no matter what. Vox's links led me to Bane.

Bane Rants

Bane is hard to catagorize. He likes it that way. He is a liberal basher, realizing it is a waste of time to argue with the brain dead. He will ban them rather than waste time. He is a linker. But he also writes some pretty good stuff. He has more experience in the world than most people will get. He also doesn't have a job, so he has lots of time to blog. He writes a lot about his family. Bane is probably most responsible for me starting this blog. Too bad I got nothin to say. Anyway don't go to his site if you are easily offended. Bane likes to post pictures of women.

Bane led me to Steve at Hog on Ice. Bane I think really likes Steve's work, and seems to be disappointed that Steve doesn't seem to notice him. But I think Bane's blog is better, even if Steve is a better writer. Steve is a lawyer, a cook, and a home brewer. I bought his cook book. Pretty good ribs, but I don't cook much so I haven't tried the other recipes. I intend to though. He is one hell of a humor writer. He spends a lot of time ridiculing others. Right now, he is makin' fun of Pajama's Media. So I don't read that much, when very other post is on the same thing, I tune out a little. He is also writing a book on the stupidity of Nigerian scam artists. Very creative guy. Check him out if you have never.

Protein Wisdom
I don't read Jeff every day, but most of the time. I am a pretty smart guy, but most of his stuff goes over my head. He spends a lot of time pointing out the hypocrisy of the left. And writing some pretty funny stuff. He makes you wander sometimes if he really is taking some of those red pills found behind the sofa.

Mostly I just read blogs and comment. Sometimes I find something I want to blog about, but I only have Hi speed internet at work. By the time I get home, its gone. I can't blog and work at the same time. Dammit.

I am not dead

I am not dead yet. I haven't got anything to say though. I have to admit blogging is not for me. I would love to do it, but I just don't have the time. Plus there are so many good bloggers already out there. I will try to post something now and then, but mostly I lurk on other peoples blogs.

I wonder

I wonder what bloggers do all day. How do you find time to blog. I guess I could blog at home, but it is on slow dial up which is intolerable. So I only have time to blog after work. In order to blog during the day, you have to be self employed, or unemployed.

I wonder what the world is coming to. Will my kids have a safe place to grow up? Will I even have kids? (note to my wife if you are readings this, yes I want children when the time is right). I don't have to worry about terrorism in South Dakota. Terrorists know that it is not a high profile target. If they bombed the capital of South Dakota tommorrow, half the people in the U.S. would say "great now they're bombing Canada too". Too bad they didn't hit Spain or France instead of London.

I wonder if the words typed in the above paragraph will lead to someone from the government checking into this site or into my background. If so, I would like to take this opportunity to tell him/her to get back to work and maybe look for someone of Middle Eastern descent. Nothing out here in South Dakota but sheep and the men who tend them. I think racial profiling might work if given half a chance.

What am I going to blog about today?

I have been really busy lately. I hardly have time to read my favorite blogs, let alone blog on my own. I blog after work. The Neanderthal's that I work with would not understand. They have enough trouble breathing through their nostrils and not dragging their knuckles. One guy I work with seriously stinks. He sweats a lot. I think he needs a industrial strength deoderant or surgery to have his armpits removed. You can smell his scent in the vehicles he rides in hours later. Another guy I work with is an asshole. He is the type who is perfect in his own mind and shows utter contempt for everyone else. The fact that he is an imbecile seems to escape him.

I am only taking the time to post this because nobody reads this blog. It is not like I am boring anyone with this stuff. I have about 30 hits since I put the counter on. I am not depressed about it though. I feel pretty self conscious about having a blog. So it is a good thing that nobody I know is reading it.

In which I shamelessly copy Jeff Goldstein's brief conversation schtick.

A brief conversation between Howard Dean and Chewbacca:

Howard Dean: "Yyeeaaarrrrrgggg!!!"

Chewbacca: " Yeeoooaaawwwggghh!!!"

Howard Dean: "Oooooooooooooooooggaahh Ooooooooooooooooooooooooggaahh!!!"

Chewbacca: "Yeeoooaawwwggghh!!!"

Howard Dean: "Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeehaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaw!!!"


Howard Dean: "You ever feel just a little misunderstood?"


Howard Dean:


Howard Dean: "Right wing nut job."

This just in

Brad Pit is Scuzzy

but you knew that already.

Now this is funny. Unfortunately, She is just as much of a barking moonbat as he is.

It is so fun to make fun of celebrities

In the news


Kerry really was an idiot! I told you so. Of course Bush is an idiot too. The best two candidates the United States of America can come up with. Depressing.

Michael Jackson trial, who cares.

Blogging is hard.


Today is the second anniversary of the wedding of myself to my lovely wife. That sounded really stupid. We are going out for supper. Then we are going home to clean the house for company this weekend. The joys of marriage.

Mmmm.......... Ann

Trying to learn how to post links. We will see what happens.


Easy as pie

Name change

I changed the name of the blog from "Bull in a China Shop" to "Giraffe in a compact car." I wanted to keep the name Giraffe, which I have used to comment in other blogs, but it didn't make sense to be posting as Giraffe. I am still but hey. I'll fugure somthing out. Plus, when I drive my wife's car, I feel like a giraffe in there.

Jeanabelle posted a comment. As the first commenter on my blog, I am going to link to her's. As soon as i figure out how..............

This whole thing is going to be a learning process. I will add things as I learn and the site will evolve.

I am here!

Well now I have a blog. I may be late to the blog craze, but I got nothing to say anyway. I don't know what I am going to blog about. I may be one of those blogs that dies quickly, but at least I gave it a shot.
