Evening Reading: 1/28/13

I don’t always want to be a cat, but when I do, I want to be a Canada Lynx.

Speaking of cats, my cat  wouldn’t cross the street to come back to us (literally, I’m not kidding), but this cat travels 200 miles?

It’s been a long time since I played computer games, but I can tell you that I’m intrigued by the forthcoming SimCity reboot.  SimCity was one of the first computer games that really got me hooked.  Actually it was the mostly forgotten SimFarm first, and then SimCity.  The fact that the new version will be released on Mac doesn’t bode well for my free time.

RIP Leroy Bonner.  When my kids want to talk to me about the non-music they listen to and how lame daddy’s music is, I make them watch this.

Nothing, and I mean nothing, on the radio today rocks like that.

Speaking of old things.  I am bewildered by the gems that Raiders of the Lost Walmart uncover.  My first digital camera was a Sony Mavica.  You can have your own, for a mere $269.  You’ll also need an ancient computer with a floppy drive.

If there is one thing that should never be consumed, it’s non-diet soda.  I go postal on the rare occasions when my kids ask me if they can have one.

I’m sure internet dating is a little scary.  Getting stabbed 10 times while on an internet date is probably really scary.
