I am pretty much already done with 2009. Yep. I am starting 2010 a little early.
For starters, I am surprised that there are any celebrities left alive in this year o'death. Do you think that this is God's way of saying "sort out health care RIGHT FRICKING NOW before I kill them all off!"?
Because I am willing to wait on resolving healthcare until the Death-a-Thon catches up with the Olsen twins.
I'm just saying.
And if I never hear the word "Recession" or a tip about living frugally again, I'll be happy. There is a reason the word "recession" exists and it is directly related to the fact that it can't always be a boom or a plateau. So deal.
If you want to complain about something, complain about the new look of Boston.com or about the fact that digital tv stinks.
Have you seen the new Boston.com website? First of all, this box:
annoys me. Surely the webmasters over there can at least set the list up to rotate through town names. And when you click on the the red arrow next to "Your Town" it brings you to this box:
Apparently the Globe/Boston.com is only read by people in those 12 towns. No wonder they are hemorrhaging money. People in those communities have mortgages to pay and Prius payments to make. They read Boston.com for free, they aren't going to pay for a $40 a month Globe delivery. And once Boston.com becomes a pay site, they aren't going to read it at all.
And after the lame "Your Town" box is the lame news area:
This is another section that needs to be refreshed with frequency. There are some days when I check this section in the morning, and then again in the afternoon, and nothing will have changed.
Oh and about the digital tv business. Well let's see. It doesn't work properly when it rains, is windy, a helicopter flies over, someone sneezes....
Totally annoying and a good as any reason to keep my Netflix account.
