Sorry to be absent recently. With the announcement that Astrid is being closed by the evil manipulator, Yahoo!, I’ve spend this week researching To-Do lists online.
1. Who the hell uses a punctuation mark in the company title? That was exciting in, like, 1997.
2. Octopus is a really hard word to spell. Especially after a few shots of lime rum. I have mentioned my aged body’s failure to handle alcohol like I used to.
3. The world needs an app that syncs with a web-based service to handle recurring items and nested tasks. It should be in a Winnie-the-Pooh format so that it daily automates a task like “Think” or “Visit best friend.”
4. If I finally have an evening when I don’t have work-related work that’s due the next day, I shouldn’t celebrate by breaking out the rum.
But, 3 is really important. If I was any good at anything besides relative pronouns and random Disney facts, I would get started tonight. Okay, not tonight.
Look, YOU try to type octopus after 3 shots of rum!
Someone do number 3 so I don’t have to.
I will pretend that this was an intentional tie-in, when in fact, I only just discovered the full wisdom of Pooh.
5. Today sucked.
