Thursday... It's been a while...

Alright, so once again the Dimwit has failed to live up to the title of his own blog... but you know what? Tough. Deal with it... Life sucks, and if you rely on the Dimwit's daily dose of love, links and laziness then well maybe you need to reconsider your priorities and stop heaping expectations on the guy. Ok ok ok... he'll settle down now and get you all prepared for some linkage... no promises, no grand amazing links to blow your mind, but linkage nonetheless... linkage you've missed... admit it! Not another word until you admit you missed it...

Ok... that wasn't that hard was it????

1) FOr those offended by offensive language, don't click this link. For those of you who don't mind a certain 4-letter word being bandied about... well, here you go... NPH!!!
2) The joy springs forth from the Dimwit's heart at the site of Tresling.
3) A very important topic in these troubling times.
4) Hahahahaha... even if you don't like Mel, this is funny.
5) Maybe the best Halloween costume ever.
6) Nom-nom-nom on some ghosts!
7) It just doesn't get any cooler than this. Seriously.... no no, seriously.
8) Darth Vader... usin' his skillz...
9) And finally, for my female readers... a product you all probably would appreciate... maybe... the Dimwit has no clue whether this would be advantageous or not, he just thinks it's goofy looking enough for you all to think you have to have one and start pillow fights over who gets the last one on the shelf... *WHOA* snap back to reality... ok, anyways... there you go...

The latest installment of your linkage is done now. You might get some more on Monday, but don't oppress him with your expectations or you will get NOTHING!

Wednesday.... apparently named after Odin...

Did anyone else know that Wednesday was named after Odin? The Dimwit figured this out through his daily crossword puzzle... he was totally unaware of this...

The Dimwit is pissed off. A certain "police officer" decided that he would stake out a tiny street in downtown and nail people for doing a "rolling stop" through a rather insignificant intersection that really shouldn't have a stop sign. It's ridiculous. He got a ticket. He's not happy. He's going to fight it, as this stupid cop decided to let the Lexus driving goober infront of the Dimwit get away with exactly the same thing... There was a slight temptation to slash his tires between the parking garage and the office, as he was on the way... Really where was he when the Dimwit almost got ran off the road 20 minutes earlier on the freeway by an idiot doing 85 in a 60? No no, let's make sure people aren't making rolling stops through an unnecessary stop sign?!?!?! Grr...

Alright, well, should we assume you want linkage?

1) WOOT! It's a Woot-off!!!!
2) Vroooooooom!!!!
3) There are so many ways this is awesome... if only they were life-sized...
4) The Dimwit spent half an hour putting his friend's faces through this...
5) Yes, the Dimwit is a nerd and yes he thinks this is COOL!
6) Again, completely nerdy, yet pretty sweet... nerd bling...

That's it. The Dimwit is done for the day... back to requisitions and boring work crud...

Tuesday... It's been a while... any readers left out there????

Yea yea yea... he knows... the complaints have been pouring in... where is the Dimwit? What happened to his daily dose of linkage? Has the Dimwit suffered some horrible fate? Massive head injury? Broken fingers?

Well, to calm your fears the Dimwit is perfectly ok, actually he's never been better. The problem is that he's had a lot of work to do the past week or so and he needed to do that while "at work" so the bloggage has suffered. Additionally, the Information Technology "professionals" at his place of employment have further restricted the linkage access, so he is a bit afraid the quality of future posts may suffer... just be aware, he's still just as cool, it's the IT people that are going to make this blog suck.

Well, here goes nothing...

1) The Dimwit may soon be spending his weekends on one of these...
2) Slap one of these on and you'll get all the chicks...
3) For those of you who actually know the Dimwit, you know that he HATES his cell phone... he just found the replacement.
4) Cool calendar.
5) Kevin and Ken, The Dimwit and WooFrickenHoo have found your Christmas presents...

Alright, sorry it's so short and the Dimwit thanks Miranda for her contributions...

Friday... sweet release...

The Dimwit is not feeling the whole "blog" thing today. Not only because there's not really much to talk about, but well he's just SO excited about going to go see FANBOYS tonight at the Angelika Film Center that he can't hardly sit still.

Time for another shameless plug, this time for the Angelika. This is the Dimwit's favorite movie theater, for several reasons. First, because it is in the middle of downtown Houston and anytime the Dimwit gets to walk the streets of downtown, well he loves it. Second, it's VERY clean, they maintain the place and if he's spending $9.50 to go to the movie, he wants some ambiance and a clean seat to sit in. Finally, it is non-thug infested and generally lacks the "mommy and daddy couldn't find a babysitter" factor. Nothing against thugs (or moms and dads), he is sure they live a great life and contribute to society in a wonderful manner... however the Dimwit doesn't not appreciate their attendance at the movies, as they are generally a distraction.

Alright, there, he threw in some links. Yes, this was an extremely lazy post, but it is what it is so get over it. Wow, he's feisty today...

American Idol = Suckfest 2009

We all knew it was coming, now here it is... The Dimwit has admitted to following American Idol in previous blogs, and up until this point he has remained quiet regarding its potential for 2009. He will be silent no more, the talent pool is dried up. After watching the "Group Auditions" last night, it is evident that anyone who could make their high school choir could make this show's "Hollywood Week". There really is only one or two of these buffoons that have any talent. So it is most probable that we'll end up with some idiot being showered with confetti in a few months time, and that we'll never hear from them again, a la Taylor Hicks.

American Idol, take a break, even if it is just an extra half-year between seasons, let the talent pool deepen a bit. Unless you all are holding back on showing some REAL talent, this season may be your worst ever.

Alright, on to better things... like linkage...

1) Star Wars + Cops = Amazing.
2) Stuff like this freaks the Dimwit out.... certainly there is a rational explanation to this bit of tomfoolery...
3) Dimwit approved footwear... good job Wolverine, good job.
4) Speaking of being freaked out.... it starts with Pong, it ends with world domination... the robots WILL get us all...
5) Buy the Dimwit one of these and he'll love you forever...
6) Stereotypical, we know, but a combo of the two worst kind of drivers... any doubt why she's on attempt #772?

For those of you in the Houston area, Joel McHale is coming to Houston on the 15th! The host of E! Channel's The Soup, this guy is freakin' hilarious. The Dimwit already has his VIP Box Seats reserved, better hurry and get your tickets now!!!!!

Alright, done with that shameless plug....

*The Dimwit is in no way affiliated with Joel McHale, the E! Channel or Verizon Wireless Theater... although if any of you want to start paying him, he'll totally affiliate with you. ish...*

Wednesday... wow... already?

Not that the Dimwit is complaining, but it's Wednesday already! YAY! Even though this isn't his week for having Friday off, it still means that he's halfway through this mess and he can see the Friday night "frosty adult beverage" in his sights. Oh get ready, you bottle o' suds, you're gunna get it! Yea, that's right, talkin' smack to a beer bottle...

He watched "Man On Fire" last night with a new friend... old friend... it's complicated. Anyways, the point is that the movie was watched, and in the end it gives some pretty exact dates for the birth and death of the protagonist "John Creasy", and the date the antagonist was killed by police. Thus leading one to believe it's a true story, and in a way creating a greater emotional connection with the characters... well, I tell you now it's a fraud. It's not even "loosely based on a true story", it was a re-make of a 1987 film of the same name which was put together from a series of books by an author the Dimwit has never heard of before or since. Needless to say, Hollywood, we at The Daily Dimwit deplore your use of such imagery and shenanigans to try and trap us up in your emotional tomfoolery. If it's not a true story, don't portray it as one. We're onto your game, don't make us take this to the press...

Alright, other than that, great movie. Dakota Fanning is impressive once again and who doesn't like Denzel being the total badass shoot-em-up type? Plus Marc Anthony blows his brains out later in the movie. We don't condone suicide, but there's something to be said about survival of the fittest in this instance... The Dimwit will leave this joke alone... so tempting... must move on... drat...

So, linkage? You want it? Do ya? Do ya? Alright, he can hear all of you biting your fingernails in anticipation... here it is, but don't say we didn't warn you... oh wait, we didn't... nevermind...

1) Why is it that the Dimwit isn't allowed to wear this to work? If only it came in a Polo Shirt style...
2) Ok, so here's the warning: The video below is quite possibly the most disgusting Chinese food cooking demonstration ever. The Dimwit nearly puked. The premise of the competition: take live food, prepare it for consumption, all while keeping it alive, so that the finished product is still moving/breathing/etc on the plate. Not for the weak of stomach... ok, now we can say it.... don't say you weren't warned!!!!!

video

3) Oh so true...

4) Just in case you all don't know, Michael Phelps is a horrible horrible person... according to Inside Edition the other day, he not only was photographed smoking something in a "bong", but also drank a beer, touched a "dancer" and partied all night in Vegas. Surely he's going down a horrific path leading only to death and destruction...

5) WHO CARES?!?!?!?!?!? Historian geeks have WAY too much time on their hands... So what if she was hot? If we found out she was dog-ugly would we be making such a fuss?

6) Alright, so this guy is a moron...

Good day to you all... have fun and stay away from the Chinese food for lunch...

Tuesday... 6:51am... ready to be home...

The Dimwit doesn't want to be at work today. But then again, when does he? Slacker...

By the way, Jill once again won the trivia contest, as she apparently is the only reader able to use this complicated thing called "Electronic Mail". The Dimwit is still getting a grip on it himself, so he understands the confusion. The answer was "weird".

Not much in terms of linkage today, but here you go...

1) Knowing is half the battle...
2) For you Trekkers/Trekkies out there.
3) The Dimwit has plans this weekend...
4) Hahahaha... The Dimwit hates these stupid things, and this video treats them just as they should be treated...
5) Anyone else watch The Big Bang Theory????

That's all there is today... meh...

Monday Morning

The Dimwit is following some advice: Nothing nice to say? Say nothing at all.

Linkage... get motivated:
1) Parenting 101
2) Rancors come out of no where sometimes, you know?!?!
3) Could bacon find a way to be more awesome? Yes, yes it can.
4) Gotta love the Canadians...
5) Definitely a viable terrorist threat if ever there was one...
6) The Dimwit isn't sure this can be proven with scripture, but stranger things have been, so he'll leave it up for discussion... haha...
7) Who said date-stamping was only for food????
8) The French Army just doesn't get it...
9) Watch out... these guys have been let out of the looney bin...

Have a good day everyone.
