I went to the Bellevue Entrepreneur’s meetup tonight and met some interesting people. Some of them had legitimate businesses and some were what I dub “human spam”. One woman was selling diet pills that allow you “to lose weight with no exercise or changes in what you eat!”. Another man was involved in a multi-level marketing scheme selling holiday cards. … read more “Human Spam”
I signed up for an online “church” that ordains ministers to perform weddings. If you are interested in getting married, let me know and I will perform the ceremony!

Merchant services is one of the most confusing parts of running an online business. Right now, I find myself asking “Can one merchant services account run multiple websites?” I have done some research and found a few options.

News has just broke that Michael Jackson, the legendary pop star and friend of children everywhere, has died of a heart attack. Thanks to my younger brother for giving me the news on Michael Jackson. I am looking around the interwebs to see what other news on Michael Jackson’s death there is.

Throughout the whole ordeal, the man just does not seem to care much one way or the other, he only exists for the moment and the short term future. … read more “Suffocating Existentialism”
My roommate Zach’s girlfriend’s dog now lives in Zach’s room. The dog, Bobo, weighs five pounds and is cute, white, and fluffy. Bobo firmly believes he is an enormous hound from hell.

For the last few days, I’ve been sick and haven’t gotten as much done as usual. Got home after work today and did a little bit on my side projects and am now watching “Satan’s Little Helper”… such a terrible movie lol. Probably going to turn it off as soon as I’m done eating these nectarines.
I am trying out outsourcing some menial personal tasks to someone over an internet connection. Tasks like blog commenting, article submissions, basic site testing and other stuff will be done by a helper instead of me. Hopefully, I will find someone reliable and trustworthy to take care of this stuff.
I attended the Fremont Summer Solstice Fair yesterday and had a blast… lots of sun, hippies, drinks, and fun. I actually sadly missed the nude bicyclists, but I did see about a thousand of them in Portland last weekend.
I do have a question though: As much as I like naked bicyclists, isn’t it against the law? … read more “Fremont Solstice Parade: Naked Bicyclists”
