Silly country song titles

Sunday, June 22nd, 2003

While surfing around this evenig, I came across some rather hilarious really bad country song titles.

A few of my favorite titles from the list:

  • Cow Cow Boogie (Moo Moo My Love)
  • I Don’t Care if it Rains or Freezes ‘Long as I Have My Plastic Jesus Sittin’ on the Dashboard of my Car
  • I Don’t Know Whether To Kill Myself Or Go Bowling
  • I Flushed You From The Toilets Of My Heart
  • I Got the Hungries for Your Love, and I’m Waitin In Your Welfare Line
  • I Sat Down On A Beartrap (Just This Morning)
  • I Was Looking Back to See If You Were Looking Back to See If I Was Looking Back to See if You Were Looking Back at Me
  • If The Phone Doesn’t Ring, It’s Me
  • I’ve Been Flushed From The Bathroom Of Your Heart
  • Jim, I Wore A Tie Today
  • My Phone Ain’t been Ringing, so I Guess it Wasn’t You
  • Redneck Martians Stole My Baby
  • She Thinks My Tractor’s Sexy
  • You Can’t Roller Skate In A Buffalo Herd
  • You’re The Reason Our Kids Are So Ugly

Post a reply with some of your favorite ones. (:

I have just uploaded and posted a set of photos from downtown Savannah. I was recently in the city for a week in honor of celebrating my sister’s graduation.

Picture taking, rain or shine

Friday, June 20th, 2003

This morning, I woke up before the sun rose. I managed to get out of the house a little later, around six in the morning. I had my trusty camera at my side. It was overcast, but I did not let that stop me; I was on a mission to snap a few photographs.

As I drove towards Jordan Lake to catch the morning light, the clouds in the sky burst. The weather went from dull and dreary to a torrential downpour. I was driving in a sudden North Carolina monsoon.

When the rain mostly let up a couple hours later, I ventured to park and take a couple pictures. "No parking" signs littered the roadsides. I decided to drive to a recreational facility on the lake and rest my car in a parking space within its vicinity.

"Four bucks?!" The guy had to be kidding. All I could do was repeat myself, "You want four bucks for me to park? Four bucks to park out here in the middle of nowhere? Just for a couple minutes?" It was pretty crazy. I could justify the money if I was going to stay there all day and if I was hauling my very own boat to go speed racing on the lake, but to stop and play the part of a shutterbug for a few minutes — well, the price definately was not worth it. "Well, if you want four bucks, I’m going to drive a bit forward and turn around." I did precisely that. I left feeling somewhat cheated out of an opportunity for a photo-taking experience. Nowhere near that area was there a place to legally park. I know I missed a few decent shots this morning.

If it is any consolation, I managed to have my camera with me when I spotted a truck with a very unusual sticker on its rear window. I’ve seen many like it in the past, but with either the letters "LNX" or "OBX", short for "Linux" and "Outer Banks", respectively. One has to wonder if those three letters are referring to the same three in recent news… Anyway, I thought it was quite odd.

Hopefully this upcoming Saturday morning will lend a bit more hospitible weather for photography. *smile*

More random photo goodness…

Friday, June 20th, 2003

I have moved the random photos to the top of the page. In addition, I have made it so that only the horizontal photos display in the random rotation at the top. For random vertical images, please check out the random photo page which has both random horizontal images (at the top) and vertical ones (at the bottom).

Trae, this should make you happy. It looks cleaner to me, so it makes me smile at least. (:

PS: I also de-hoverified the news items (well, mostly).

Return of the random photos

Thursday, June 19th, 2003

You can see the random photos on the left side of the page under the box at the side of the page now at the top of the page. The random photo page has also made a comeback.

Last weekend, I went to both Duke Gardens and the local butterfly house, "Magic Wings". Yesterday, in the previous post on my website, I announced the availability of the Duke Gardens pictures. Today, you can also see the butterfly pics.

Check out the full "butterflies and bugs" gallery.
