I haven't posted in a while because I'm a little bit jet lagged from all the Traveling I've been doing lately...
...the travel I've been doing lately across the Internets!!!
You did not see that witty pun coming, did you?
Is it even a pun?
I'm not sure.
Is it witty?
When Traveling the Internet, there is much turbulence and the occasional seedy flashing banner that will steal your wallet, passport and your back door dignity, so you have to be careful.
You also can't get all caught up in the hype and leave your family for days while you log in to various grotto's, cyborz with exotic women (that are actually Brooklyn men) and engage in extreme sports (the latest battle quest of your preferred magical fantasy-I need to learn how to live my own life-online game).
It's all about staying healthy. You have to think of the health of your eyes, your over-loaded Coke-preserved Brain, and your basic social needs as a Human.
So, the trick to the Internet is to get it done fast. You can get a surprisingly large amount of wholesome good times, large chunks of information and general satisfaction just by spending at MAXIMUM, 3 hours online.
I shall divulge...
*why does this blog have such a smug tone to it? Because I was just able to get my Internet time to under 3 hours and am now satisfied enough to venture into the Sun...please let me live in my moment of glory without insult*
Travel Items that will make the Journey more enjoyable...
Drink: Starbucks Coffee frappuccino Coffee Drink, "a Low fat Creamy Blend of Starbucks Coffee and Milk" in dark chocolate Peppermint Mocha with natural & artificial flavours.
Snack: Nothing yet, I run on empty until I feel like I may black out (only because I'm extremely lazy) However, Fruit Loops or last nights Pizza are probably somehow good for you in a This Is Really Not Good For You kind of way.
Preferred Time: 7am to 10am on a Saturday Morning.
Music: Steely Dan's 'Rikki Don't Lose That Number' and all the songs off the first Gossip Girl episode...shut up.
POPUrls.com I have to give credit where it's due, Boh3m3 introduced me to this site, he is one that has his Travel Schedule down, though he does it for too long and into the wee hours of the morning, which can't be healthy, but then again, it's Boh3m3...and he shoots himself in Black and White...so he is obviously crazy.
POP Url's is a great site because it has a great collection of sites, from digg.com to the latest Twitter updates and shows the most popular photos, videos from YouTube and other sites and the latest blogs from some of the best bloggers out there as well as great new news articles from The Onion and the latest vlog from Rocketboom.
If you use that site, you can be sure that you know nearly all that is important in the world for that second.
"But how do I sort through it all?"
With a little thing, I like to call Firefox and the CTRL+CLICK+OPEN LINK IN NEW TAB option. Then it's like you have your own little news paper of Interest, you can conquer it all in order or keep up the tabs that you want to bookmark for later or show to a friend - no fuss, no missed flights, no delays. It's all there.
I would recommend the lovely little countries of Facebook, Tumblr, IMDB, Apple - Movie Trailers, FirstShowing.net, MySpace...
There is a hilarious site that always puts me in the most fantastic mood, it's the place I love to travel to most...
The next stop is usually the great Shopping Destinations.
I like, fruitybeauty, the Girl with her bloody Satchel , Daily Candy and the Pop Candy Blog.
Sometimes the Turbulence can mess about with your cute little macsuitcase
(did that made-up word nearly make you want to puke, I did...why is it orange?), so I like to check out the sites that deal with technology or just the Internet in general while I wait for it to be fixed. The very smart Andrew Baron, introduced me recently to Techmeme and TechCrunch is good. Andrew Baron's own blog, Dembot is full of handy information to give you an edge against your other travelers.
Go see some great shows during your Travel!
Watch EpicFu and other great classics on YouTube, try The Meth Minute, you'll get a chuckle...or they will get you drunk - good lads.
Don't forget to visit your friends while you travel around the world!
Check around to see who out of your friends is traveling and blogging about it...they'll most likely be on Blogger, it's getting really hot right now especially that Google and Blogger are having sex and making babies.
Then I like to return home to Australia and start my day.
What did I get out of my most recent trip?
I learned that gamers are killing each other, I played some games and enjoyed being a consumer...
Now, if you excuse me, I'm going to log off and see that scary monster that likes to eat giant Goddess heads.
Please note that by the time I finished writing this the Sweeney Todd Soundtrack was playing...
