Saving the planet, one website at a time

So, over in the blogroll, you'll find a link to Blackle, a black Google.  They claim websites with a BLACK BACKGROUND save energy, by creating less demand on your screen and with the amount of hits, Google is the logical place to start.  How often to YOU hit up Google for information, directions, images, etc?  I even use Google as a quickie spell check, often.  Anyway, I would've called it Gackle, or Boogle, myself.

So, of course I knew all about how LOAP and now this site were saving the world mega-watts of energy and I'm thrilled to see other people jump on the bandwagon.  It's about time and welcome to the black background bandwagon, folks over at Blackle...;)   My fellow bloggers?  I challenge you all to do your part in saving the planet by going black and joining me in the dark.  It's not easy being the guy who always sets the bar, but join me and I promise you enlightenment, or some shit like that.

OK, I'm tired of that bullshit, so here's some more.  I thought it would be entertaining to start up that AD-sense nonsense and poke fun at the content-specific ads appearing over in my sidebar, while getting a check for .03 cents every couple of years.  Turns out the joke is on me.  It takes a bit of filling out forms and waiting and that kind of shit is anything but fun for me.  I'm already bored with the idea and it hasn't even kicked in, yet.  I think there's a standard hurricane relief message, or something, but that's it.  Bor--ring.

What else?  Yeah, I know I always mention work sucks, but it really does.  So many things are up in the air, like MY LIFE FOR THE NEXT MONTH and to top it off I can't even peek at online lingerie stores while at work!  I am not a happy camper.  Actually, that's not true.  I did have a wonderful phone call from LP tonight, who called the ship from the truck, on her way to school.  She was in an excellent mood, quite talkative and I enjoyed hearing her voice, immensely.

Anyhow, I need to dig around and find a photo for you-hold on....................
OK, I've got one-this is looking down on the sleepy, little port town of Lyttleton, where I disembarked back in January. It's just outside of Christchurch and seems to be a pleasant, little town (translation-it has a pub)
