Hungry Monster

Weight Watchers has produced an awesome character called the Hungry Monster. He is sooooo cute. I have a new, oh what do you call it, desire, to become a puppeteer. We watched a show called Ace of Cakes, and they made a cake for an adult puppet theater group called Avenue Q. The puppets made me smile. I love to make silly voices and talk with my hands... Weird, I know, but I love it. So, my new career goal is to become a puppeteer and make people laugh... I don't know how I'll do it, but I think I'd be great at it. Rebecca thinks I'm crazy... She's right. -cheers

Yes, I already posted this blog... But, I want to run an experiment and see how many people link to this particular blog... Fun stuff... So relax, your not in a time warp.

Be proud of your inner nerd.

A new way of showing your true nerdness... Badges!
Oh yea... It's on! I can see my local nerd herd having patch battles at the tables in the school cafeteria. has posted a fine idea of nerdom, and they are selling these for only $ some shipping.

Perhaps a hierarchy of value to assist what badges can trump and what badges are just fluff... Will there be the hard to find Verduran Enchantress – Alpha badge that only true nerds can attain... We need rules!!! Check out their site at for more info. -cheers

Your blog is an awesome blog!

Number One Novels has produced two interviews by newly published authors, and I truly like the last one. The book is called The Warded Man by Peter Brett, and it sounds like a good read. It follows the stories of three people living in a world that is run amuck by demons after sundown. My kind of book. Check it out Mr. Brett's article on blogger at Number One Novels... Who knows, you just might find a new author.. -cheers

Spice up your wall with a little vintage fun.” This sounds so cool. They even include a table of dates that will work with 2009 and a link to the original article.

Apple Reinvents The Wheel!

Apple has outdone it's self with the introduction of the Mac Wheel...
I can't wait to get my hands on this item. Just kidding...
The Onion has done a wonderful job of mocking how Mac users flock to any new product Apple puts out. I love the sentences it produces for the “auto sentence filler”. My favorite is “The attractive peanut farmer graded the term paper”. Well done Onion! Pay close attention to how long it takes to write an email and battery life.... Oh man.. This had me laughing out loud... or LOL for the texters.

Tom's Hardware dishes up a grate article on 6 motherboards under $100. In my opinion, the Asus P5QL is the best bang for the money. I have used an Asus board for a few years now, and I must say, I love it. Never had a hardware issue, never suffered any BIOS nightmares. I love this company! and, for a low cost board you can't go wrong. Tom's has this to say "A few positive features that help the P5QL Pro stand apart from many other low-cost motherboards is the use of solid capacitors in all locations, a replaceable BIOS IC that can help recover the motherboard’s functionality in case of a bad flash, and a four-phase voltage regulator where some competitors use only three. The combination of these quality enhancements, support for over-sized expansion cards, and Asus’ reputation for performance could make the P5QL Pro the ideal choice for the ultra-low-cost crowd." Check out the article at

Picture This

A handy new product offered on Photojojo makes it easy to set your white balance on your camera without the gray card or any other funky equipment. “Simply flip your camera into custom White Balance mode, snap a photo with your White Balance Lens Cap on, and your camera creates a perfect profile of the actual lighting in front of you.”
I have used white/gray cards before working as a photographer, and I always had problems. Once, working at a school, I had to take thousands of shots of kids for sports and singles... My white balance was off. Every shot turned out green... OMG.. The company I was working for lost the contract with the school, and I still have not let it go.. It was my fault. This product might have saved me. -Cody
Find the product here PhotojojoWhiteBalanceCap

The author of Technibble, Mr. Bryce Whitty, recently posted about a cool method to map out your goals. It's called Mind Mapping.

Studious Vocabulary Enhancement

Beef up on your vocabulary and enjoy learning new words with the help of Our friends at have introduced us to a new site that helps the verbally challenged, like me, to learn new words on the fly... You start by taking a word test that assembles a list of words that you need help with; You then have the option to study them online with sentence completion, or you can download them to your MP3 player for lessons on-the-go. I like this...

My first post...

Oh... I'm nervous, what do I say...
Uhmm.. ladies and gentlemen... No, no.. too stuffy...
yea... that's a start.
Hello there, you have entered my brain. Do not feed the animals for they are on a strict diet. I would like to welcome you all to the fantastical wonderment that is Cody and all the he shall deem note worthy.
To start, I think I will talk about a new author that I feel is good for a chuckle or two. Enter, TIM DORSEY... (applause) His style is not for everyone, but if you enjoy a good murder/love/comedy/drug induced cocktail hour/mystery filled with vivid details and wacky, yes wacky, flipped-out rides through our finest state, Florida, then this author is for you. I know what you are saying, but Cody, I don't like to read much... Well friend, read his book Florida Roadkill and get a kick. Like an episode of 24 without that ever too predictable Jack, Florida Roadkill snaps your neck with twists and turns then lays you down with a sucker punch to the face... Fun huh? I liked it so much, I purchased two more of his books, that I'm sure to comment on soon.
I don't usually purchase new books; I go to my favorite book seller The Almost Perfect Book Store near my home. They have a jaw dropping assortment of used books and offer something for everyone. More on them coming soon too!
So, this was fun. Not too long; Not a bunch of horse crap; And just enough to keep me interested on continuing this blog... That's right, It's all about me...
