Phone help.

Ok, so I am always about 2 generations behind tech-wise. You can make fun of me, but I think this can work--with a bit of help.

I have the EnV phone, thanks to a generous friend who upgraded (thanks!), and a prepaid service (Page Plus) that lets me talk and text on the Verizon network.

The browser needs to be changed so that it goes through a different Proxy. Verizon set up the phones so that I couldn't change it easily, but THIS forum tells us how to re-program the phone.

The problem?

1. I don't think I am even smart enough to follow the directions it gives.

2. I don't have the cord that connects the phone to a computer.

Soooo--can any of my super-cool friends help me out? I will gladly trade any theological insight you might need (I wish I had a more marketable skill to trade. I can always purchase beverages for you though)

Tokyo Shanghai Bistro//Hu's

Went today, around 1:30. There was no buffet. The chinese food tasted ok (I had hot and spicy shrimp, that wasn't too spicy and was too sweet), but it only contained four average size shrimp. FOUR! The hot and sour soup, however, tasted great. (e:Janelle) had a bento box and it looked a lot nicer. I am definitely going to do Japanese if I visit again there is no buffet.

Afterwards, we stopped at Hu's discount store. It is my new favorite store. Everything is affordable there. I wish I had my picture phone (will again in January), I would share pictures of cheap wires, the aforementioned four shrimp, and the tights that had jeans painted on them.

I wanted to buy shoes and sharpies and underwear and cleaning supplies, and luggage but I held back, because I didn't really need any of them and they will still be cheap when I need them.

I like Christmas parties

But I don't like Christmas. (not until Dec 24, anyway).

I like apple cider, but not apple pie, apples, or apple juice.

I like sleeping in the morning, but not going to bed at night.

I like (e:strip), but I never post.

Sorry about that.

My friend wrote a paper that had a great line.

"The church is like manure. If you spread it out, something beautiful might grow, but if you pile it up, it starts to stink."

I haven't opened a t-shirt factory or written my play, but I am going to get back to the play after Christmas, for real.

I do not know too much about the challenger in the Sheriff's race, but I do know that the county's holding center is messed up. The state and federal governments are suing the county for access. There are tales of people not having access to basic necessities such as toilet paper and toothpaste. There have been allegations of abuse.

Not that anybody deserves this treatment, but keep in mind that this is the HOLDING CENTER. YOU could find yourself there, even if you have not been convicted. There is no excuse to mistreat a prisoner, but it is even worse when a person has not even had a trial.

I am rarely political online, but this is a human rights issue. Vote today.

The T-shirt factory

If American Apparel can make sweat-free T's in LA, and make a profit. Why can't the same be done in NY?

Now, I know NOTHING about t-shirt manufacture, but I do know that we have a lot of available space. I also know that we have a lot of labor. Sure, taxes are high, but they are in LA, too.

I DO know that the shirts made by American Apparel feel better than any I have ever worn, and that people will pay extra for a shirt that is comfy, cool, and local.

I also know that every entrepreneur in Buffalo has started a screen printing t-shirt shop. So why not create t's locally to sell to them?

Another con--there isn't much local cotton (or any), but right now, the average t-shirt is made with American cotton shipped to the far East. Buffalo would be a much shorter trip.

I would encourage everybody to join me in brainstorming ways to create jobs in this city. We need them.

I only posted once in all of September

This is just not satisfactory. I have been a bad (e:strip) blogger.

I'm going to write something. But not tonight. Or tomorrow. Tonight I am too tired to think and I have a funeral, a meeting, and a class to teach tomorrow.

But on Friday, I will write about one of the following.



How awesome church is going to be on Sunday, even though it is going to make people angry (or maybe because of it).

Writing a play or screenplay.

My growing admiration for Stephen Colbert.

My growing dissatisfaction with just about every American politician.

My (thus far) secret development of an Obama impression. (I've got the voice pretty good, but look nothing like him)

My desire to open up a t-shirt factory in Buffalo.

You can vote on what I should blog about. I will write it on Friday after a much deserved sleep in.

Actually, if anybody wants to share a beverage on Thursday night, it's my Friday, and I will be ready for a cold one.

City of Champions

I forget, what did people use opera for before highlight videos came into existence?

On Labor Day, Janelle and I are inviting YOU to eat brunch at our house. There will be pancakes, bacon and mimosas for sure, but probably also some of my secret recipe "birthday casserole" (previously deemed so unhealthy as to only be consumed once annually, hence the name) and whatever yummy brunch items others care to share.

We will also play variegated and sundry games, such as the Western New York's own Kan-Jam (tm).

Your attendance is kindly requested. A comment, or response to the facebook event page will help us estimate the amount of batter to prepare. We hope to require so much that we are forced to rent a cement mixer.
