I get it, already!

Published by under Snippets,Spirituality/Religion

I actually feel a little guilty about writing this because I am just making work for myself, but I thought you would appreciate a couple of the names of God, as mentioned by this web site:

As-Samee^ – The All-Hearing, The Hearer, The One who Hears all things that are heard by His Eternal Hearing without an ear, instrument or organ.

Wow. Way to beat it into the ground there.

Al-Ghaffaar – The Great Forgiver, The Forgiver, The One who forgives the sins of His slaves time and time again.

Most religious folks I’ve met will tell you that we are God’s children. This web site (which I assume is Islamic, since Allah is referenced) will assert that we are all GOD SLAVES. That would be a good name for a band. Their fan club could be called FAITHFUL WORSHIPERS OF THE ETERNAL HEARER. In all caps.

Moving to WordPress

Published by under Computing

Just a heads up – I’m not going to be writing for a little while. We’re switching web hosts, and I’m switching from Blogger to WordPress at the same time. The less I write here, the fewer times I’ll have to re-import my entries to WordPress. I have enough to do with getting things set up on the WordPress side and categorizing all my back entries.

Also, when we make the switch, this URL will not work anymore. Once the switch is complete, you’ll just have to go to http://www.elvenlore.com to see my journal. So, if you try here one day and the link doesn’t work, try that next. If that also doesn’t work, it means our DNS is in the middle of propagating, and the site will be back online in a day or so.

If you want to chat in the meantime, my e-mail will still be functioning, until the DNS starts the changeover. I’ll also be checking my MySpace profile for those of you who are on my friends list over there.

This message will not self-destruct in ten seconds. Read it as many times as you want.

Are you talking about my mama?

Published by under Snippets

From an Allstate commercial:
“Mama always forgave you. Even when you did something wrong.”

Well. . . yeah. That’s usually when you forgive someone – when they do something wrong. What was Mama forgiving us for the rest of the time? Being born? Making her miss her soaps? Being the ugly kid? Not liking macramé?

You wouldn’t think that an Allstate commercial would be so subtly insulting, but it kind of is.

Celebrity /= Smart

Published by under Current Events,Rants

The BBC has a story on their web site about singer Sheryl Crow, and her brilliant solutions to global warming. One of them deals with paper napkins:

Crow has also commented on her website about how she thinks paper napkins “represent the height of wastefulness”.
She has designed a clothing line with what she calls a “dining sleeve”.
The sleeve is detachable and can be replaced with another “dining sleeve” after the diner has used it to wipe his or her mouth.

Has this moron never heard of cloth napkins? So. . . she wants us all to run around wiping our mouths on our sleeves, eh? Well, what about tissues? They’re made of paper! Maybe the other sleeve should be called the “snot rag”, and we can wipe our noses on it. Because there is also no such thing as a cloth handkerchief.

Of course, overuse of toilet paper is the greatest contributer to global warming:

Singer Sheryl Crow has said a ban on using too much toilet paper should be introduced to help the environment.
Crow has suggested using “only one square per restroom visit, except, of course, on those pesky occasions where two to three could be required”.

Now, see, for women, she could introduce long sleeved dresses in her clothing lines. One sleeve for the mouth, one sleeve for the nose, and the skirt of the dress to wipe yourself after using the toilet. Men will probably just have to use their hands instead of the wasteful amount of 2-3 squares of toilet paper.

UPDATE: Crow is now claiming that her comments were of course jokes, to get people’s attention and get everyone talking about global warming. I’d like to believe this, but unfortunately for her, no one’s talking about global warming. They’re all talking about what an idiot she is. Seems to be another case of a celebrity opening their mouths, and then realizing that people capable of cognitive thought actually read the news, so their comments don’t play so well.
