esperanza

How lazy am I?  I'm so lazy that I've owned some domains for years and done nothing with them.  And if anything has taught me to stay lazy, then trying to do something with those domains proves once and for all, I should remain lazy in these situations.

Get this:  When I tried to actually do something with the domains, it turns out the company that I bought these domains from require a static IP to point to and there is no static IP to point it to, so why can't they use a DNS and blah blah blah and OMG my head hit the desk and caused a dent called frustration.

Then I got attacked by lazy again and forgot about it.  But a few months later (translation: last week) I thought I found a solution to the problem and was confident that I would have it completed within seventy-two hours.

I giggled in anticipation and salivated and did all sorts of nerdy things.  Domains would be updated, domains would be used. But that seventy-two hour deadline was up twenty-four hours ago and approximately twenty-four hours ago I lost it.  Coincedence, I think not:  it was a proverbial straw on that stinkin' paciderms back that even stand alone, far away from the other injustices in my world, this straw was worthy of an exquiste temper tantrum.

Thankfully I had another burst of unlaziness and am confident I am on the road to fixing the issue.  I think.  Or I might just melt down completely.

Anyhow, this is my long winded excuse as to why another lame post.  May I offer you my favourite fish?  I like to call her Esperanza and she loves Friedrich Nietzsche.

My mom makes soap (which seems like it will be a totally unrelated comment, but wait for it...) and recently she's discovered how to make clear soap, with fish (just like Esperanza) inside of it, inside of a plastic baggie and it looks just like you are bringing home a fish from the pet store. Kind of awesome. And okay, kind of unrelated...except I'm sure they are Esperanza's relatives.

"attacked by lazy". I'm so using that.

Esperanza means hope. Bueno means good. Hola means hi except I pronounce it "holla", like "holla at ya mother for me" because that makes me smile.

I'm too lazy to get my own domain. It took me days to figure out the name of my blog. It's so tricky too, my name + word = the name of my blog. Genius at its' best.

I prefer a goldfish cracker myself.

You should post on a regular basis more often. I love your weird posts.

Pretty sure a camel isn't a pachyderm, so if you can break an elephant's back, well, WOW, that is one hell of a straw! But for all that, i love your feesh.
