To blog or not to blog, that is the question

I don't think people know how long it takes to write a quality blog post. It's like writing an essay for a final exam, except you don't get a time limit. When was the last time you wrote a quality final exam essay in only 15 minutes? I usually take at least an hour to write a really good blog posting, and that's the bare minimum. This will explain why I haven't posted anything worthwhile for a long time. But come to my BBQ on Saturday. As if I haven't said it enough.

I'll try to blog something by the end of the week. Like one of the potential topics below. Or something else. We'll see.

Sometimes you lose

So I made an executive decision and postponed the BBQ to Saturday, June 18 because the weather forecasts said 40 to 60% POP (possibility of precipitation? probability of precipitation? posture of pranks? grr....). And now they say 30%. This is extremely upsetting. There's no time to get together the meat and stuff to move it back to tomorrow. Even if it were, it'd be difficult to get everyone to know. Bleh... although... www.canada.com IS saying that the morning's POP is 60%. So we'll see what happens. It'd suck to go and the grass is all wet when we get there, huh? Listen to me rationalize, baby. Well, I made a decision and possibly lost out. That's the way the cookie crumbles. Or the way the rib gets burnt.

So same story as last time, except it'll be on Saturday, June 18. If there's good weather, we'll go to Barnet Marine Park. If there's bad weather, we'll cram into my place. Do or die this time. :)

Things I'd like to blog about.

Apple will use Intel CPUs.
Private health care finally recognized in Canada?
Robots that look like humans...
Feel good story of the week.
I saw Crash.
The paradox of giving up all for the cross (no URL)

On the other hand, Vicky noted that the robot woman would make the perfect wife. Erm... maybe. :p
