The fool strikes again

I, being the fool that I am, bought a new car several years ago and have been making payments on it a long time, something like 3 years now. I consider anyone who buys a car and cannot pay it off in 2 years a fool (including myself).

But anyway, I will be doing a foolish (depending on your point of view) move again. There is currently a few bucks left that I owe on the car. I have some money in the bank and am going to pay off the car entirely as soon as I get my next check next week (not this week).

This could be a foolish move or a very smart one. I will be severely depleting my savings to pay this damn thing off. On the bright side, there will be no more car payments, and all the money I would be sending to car payments I can now keep to myself. Correction: I can pay off my credit card, and then keep the cash to myself. (grin)

Anti-cow

I'm starting to wonder if I'm lactose intolerant. I didn't used to be, but it seems that whenever I drink milk or eat ice cream, I get really nauseous, but not to the point of throwing up - just a bad stomachache.

Ah well, no big deal. I'm not going to miss drinking milk or eating ice cream anyway since that only happens rarely to begin with. And I only get nauseous when I drink straight milk or eat ice cream.

Such is life.

NOW I know what it means!

For the longest time I had no idea where the word "blog" came from. I thought it was just one of those made-up computer words like WYSIWYG (pronounced "wizzy-wig" which means What-You-See-Is-What-You-Get). "Blog" is not a made up word, it's just a bad shortening of two words combined for no reason.

And here's the definition:

"Blog" comes from "weblog" which comes from "web log", which means "an electronic journal" more or less.

I never knew it went so deep. (grin)
