One Billion minus one

As you may have guessed I was very busy doing other things while I was not blogging like laundry. Actually a lot did happen and well let's face it after spending $500 on continuing my education because you know if you don't learn you don't know nuthin'

Sure, I did a lot of laundry ( do you get it I do laundry to the point that I tweet about it ) well I also walk a lot now. I really do walk about 30 miles a week because I sold my car yeah the red rocket is now someone else's problem to fix or repair daily ( I do mean that too...its a FIX or RePAIR DAILY) . Yes, I miss it but I have pictures to keep my heart warm.

I didn't just get rid of my car I eliminated my digital footprint (OMG! I typed that seriously I need to get a life or more laundry detergent ) I discontinued my Facebook account. I could tell you my ideaological reason but lets just say I don't need to see your sonogram ok. Please stop pimping pictures of people I don't know on the internet.

So there is still a Billion people out there but I think about 700 or so is just fake profiles ( fyi I created a few ) and a stock price that well just three words come to mind "pets dot com" seriously people if you blow up a balloon full of bs it will pop. So get over it,k

Just in case you need something to do besides Laundry here is what you can do to reduce your digital footprint...especially if you get out of the house :)

With three routes to choose from, we have something for all levels:

*Our 70 mile (metric century) route is strenuous with steep climbs and fast descents, perfect end of season ride for the serious cyclist

If you need a dinner and movie to go to Check out this!
Join Ciao Bella Getaway Club for another fun-filled event. October is all about Fall and Halloween, so we have conjured up a spooktacular day. Join us for an afternoon lunch as we devour the "King Kong" pizza at New York Pizza. Then we will walk to the Stanford Theatre to see a special showing of the original 1935 "Bride of Frankenstein". After the movie, we will all probably need a glass of wine! If you are up to it, join us for optional wine tasting and maybe a wonderful desert along Palo Alto's lively University Avenue.

About New York Pizza (The Home of King Kong Pizza):
Customers have consistently rewarded New York Pizza's commitment to quality & service. We are also recognized for having one of the biggest & best pizza's in California...the King Kong 24" Pizza!

About The Stanford Theater:
The Stanford Theatre Foundation is dedicated to bringing back the authentic movie-going experience of Hollywood's Golden Age. Classic Hollywood directors never intended you to watch their pictures on a video screen in your living room (or while jogging). The magic of the movies depends on a larger-than-life image and the shared reactions of a large audience.The Stanford Theatre first opened in 1925, and it served for decades as Palo Alto's premier movie house. Most classic films played here on their initial Palo Alto engagements
In 1987 was purchased and restored by the David and Lucile Packard Foundation. It is currently operated by the Stanford Theatre Foundation, led by David Woodley Packard, the son of Hewlett-Packard co-founder David Packard.

About The Bride of Frankenstein:
The Bride of Frankenstein (1935)Oscar winner, Starring Boris Karloff and Elsa Lanchester, Having survived the fire that destroyed the laboratory, the Monster demands that Dr. Frankenstein create a mate for him. The thrillingly bizarre scene of Elsa Landchester's birth as the Bride is a supreme triumph of Hollywood fantasy.Franz Wazman's outstanding musical score helps elevate this film far above its genre. "Probably the best of the man-made monster genre from any period." William K. Everson "One of the oddest and most memorable films ever made in America." Baseline Movie Guide
