I answer questions that I have been asked on another social networking site that I belong to and you get to see a thunderstorm that hit Herkimer this week.
This is actually a funny episode here in which I find some random stuff around Herkimer, including a horse statue named Mr. Ed (which I originally thought was put out in the window of a local building as an April Fools joke) and an advertisement outside of a church which inevitably leads to jokes about the Zombie Jesus. Plus you get to see Arthur and my latest attempt to score an HD camcorder, courtesy of a sweepstakes contest sponsored by Coca-Cola. The camcorder I am after is a Sony HD Handycam and the contest ended March 31. I have to wait until April 15 to find out if I won it. I am definitely keeping my fingers crossed.
Since Easter is officially a holiday that revolves around the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, us YouTubers have the tendency to refer to him as the Zombie Jesus. There were quite a few videos revolving around the Zombie Jesus coming out at Easter time. So this year, I too decided to jump on the bandwagon. What inspired me to do this was when I was walking home from work one day and I saw an advertisement in front of a church telling people to “beat the Easter rush” to church. That is obviously one Easter rush I just as soon avoid, being that I am not religious and all. Still I couldn’t resist the urge to take that idea and run with it.
Have I mentioned that I really hate snow? Well, I’m gonna mention it again for old time’s sake. The weather the last couple of days have been horrible. In fact, I had to cancel yet again on another trip to go see my brother. It’s not so much the snow, but the wind gusts are horrible, especially in the Mohawk Valley, where I live. I hate the fact that the wind causes the snow to drift all over the place making the roads horrible and hard to travel on.
I was pretty much all set to go down and see my brother yesterday. I had to stay overnight somewhere else because the trip from Central New York to where my brother lives is about two hours, even longer during bad winter weather. So I ended up coming home yesterday afternoon. It just wasn’t worth it with this horrible weather. And the thing is that it’s supposed to snow all week. I’m gonna try to go down again next weekend. Hopefully by then things will have calmed down a bit.
I would have gone online sooner yesterday afternoon, but I wasn’t feeling too well. I had a bit of an upset stomach and so I had to lay down for the remainder of the day. I got up a little later and had dinner with my brother-in-law and my sister’s family. I was also able to catch up on my emails and Twittering that I missed during the day I was out of town.
Anyway, it looks like I’m gonna be shovelling tomorrow morning at the Historical Society. There’s probably gonna be about a foot of snow on the ground over there. Sigh. A winter warrior’s work is never done. I swear, if anyone has a reason to harbor a personal grudge against Old Man Winter, it’s me.
Not too much has been going on lately on the ol’ web. Yesterday, I decided to take a day off mainly because the weather was pretty rainy for the walk up to HCCC and I had originally planned to take the day off to work on the book, but I was also pretty exhausted and decided to go to bed instead.
The only major event to happen over the weekend was of course the new “Harry Potter” book and it was probably a big event at Wally World, but I wasn’t there the night they unveiled it. I have not yet bought a copy of the book mainy because I have it on reserve at the Basloe Library which is where I am going to be tomorrow. From what I have heard, it is supposed to be pretty good and everything. I have only read two of the Potter books, the two being the “Goblet of Fire” and the last book “The Half-Blood Prince.” I have also seen the first four movies and I thought that they were pretty good. I am probably going to wait until it comes out on DVD before I go to see the fifth one, which is now in theaters.
Also in my search for Miss Right on the several personals sites where I have profiles on, it is still a pretty frustrating process. It turns out that I have a lot of secret admirers, all of them being on the Internet. It’s too bad that I don’t have any offline. If I did, I probably would have known about it by now. I’m basically the type in which nothing gets by me. However, those that do message me on the personal sites turn out to be scammers, another thing to watch out for. The good news is I know not to fall for them. All I have to do is just not reply.
Oh, well. What can you do? There is just so little time and so little I have to write about.
