The to-do list

1– Read Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. Am I really the only person who’s never read it? Sheesh.

2– Figure out why my Yahoo mail has been seriously glitchy for two months. We’re talking on crack glitchy.

3– Sleep with Sean Bean. (Sorry. Saw a Coming Soon to DVD for National Treasure.)

4– Recover from watching Ladder 49. Everybody on the planet should watch this movie. And the next time your fire department has a bake sale, buy the whole freakin plate of brownies.

5– Cram as much writing as possible into the time my guys are ATV-ing tomorrow. That will include figuring out what the multi-colored doodle on my dry-erase board translates to.

    Talk to me about the yahoo mail thing. Mine clicks wildly (like fifty or so times) before it settles into the mail account. And then sometimes it randomly switches back into some kind of doubleclick ad page, when I’m not touching it. I emailed yahoo, but of course, have heard nothing.:cursin:

    *looks around* Hey – you changed colors again!

    Um, raises hand…. never read the hitchhikers guide thing either. Momma said I shouldn’t hitchhike, so never figured I needed that guide….:neutral:

    I’ve read HGTTU too many times (my kids love it, so I read it to them), so perhaps it’s all evened out. I liked the Restaurant at The End of the Universe, the second book in the five book trilogy. (hey, that’s what HE called it) The rest of the books sort of totter off into nothingness.

    Oh, geez, I loved the Guide so much I bought the computer game with Peril Sensitive Sunglasses. Can’t wait to see the movie! :cool:

    I loved that book! Loved it! Can’t wait to see the movie. And I remember playing the computer game- one of those text games. No graphics. And you had to type in exactly the right command. I played it on our Commodore 64. It was the bomb-diggity!`Not to mention entertaining and quite funny!

    *interesting side note- it was also one of the first computer games of that type and the bestselling game of its era. It sold 350,000 copies in 1984*

    With that said, I think the book is not for everyone, due to the somewhat strange humor and twisty nature of the story. Maybe I liked it because my thought process is very non-linear at times!

    Loved the Guide, the TV series was good, too…. I used to have a think for Zaphod Beeblebrox. Looking back, I must have been deranged.
