I saw this today in Fry’s:
So I checked – and, yes, this booze has 25% less calories than regular 80 proof vodka, because this is 60 proof vodka.
Do not try this at home. These are trained marketing professionals.
I’m trying this new blogging platform. I’m not sure if it’s going to work – I am amazed at how slow the editor is. I type several letters and then wait for the editing window to backfill what I’ve typed.
But if it takes a while for the Chinese comment spammers to find it, then it’s worth it. I am certain that some folks must actually look at some crappy spam content and see the link to BuyNewShoozFromShanghai.com and clidk the darn thing. At least one in a milion. And that seems to be enough to keep the spammers in business.
But, even if it doesn’t, this is – after all – a diary. I keep forgetting that. The truth is that I have lost any public platform. I left FaceBook several months back, because I got tired of the political partisans calling the other political partisans stupid.
Then, after over twenty years as an active member of the Dead Runners Society, I got tired of the partisans there taking any opportunity to find some way around the “don’t discuss politics here” rule. Since this is my blog, and nobody is reading the darn thing, I’ll say it out loud – it was the lefties who were doing that. I’ve come to believe that liberals really have to have some conservatives around to be liberal for. It’s no fun just being a liberal around other liberals.
I’ve got a brother who seems to be a liberal just to prove that he’s really not a Puckett. And I think he’s proved it : )
I was also in a Big Book study group, but I left that one as well, because I kept trying to start discussions about the material, but no discussions got started. And I already have a Big Book to read by myself.
And then, spammers kilt my blog. Okay, they didn’t stop me from writing, but they did stop anyone from commenting.
And suddenly I realized that I had no way to talk to anybody other than via one-on-one communications, either verbal or via email. And it’s only now that I realize that it’s weird that I think that that’s weird. Why would a guy like me ever have any way to talk to more than one person at a time, anyway?
So we’ll see if this works.
