Kind of a Chrome-y, Random Tuesday

I started working on my Ten on Tuesday post at work today but I couldn't get into it. I don't know if it was because I was at work, or the topic. We were supposed to list 10 people you'd love to meet. I got a few down; Dave Barry, Stephen King, Robin Williams, all the members of Rush, and then I got stuck. See, I started thinking about celebrities that I'd like to meet then I thought, what would I say to them? What if they are jerks? Yes, I know, I'm looking at it too deeply, but I am deep, man. Real deep. (Make sure you say that with a hippie 70's vibe.). So I stopped and didn't post it, but you lucky people get to read about some of them here. All four of you.  Any special people you want to meet? (Heh, I just typed 'meat'. I must be tired...or hungry.)

Did you hear about Google Chrome? The new web browser from the owner (in due time) of the entire Internet? I'm using it right now! How exciting! So far I'll say this; it is stripped down. However, I haven't added any applications to it yet. It is supposed to be faster, so I'll keep playing. Hey, I only have Internet Explorer, Firefox, and an old version of Netscape on here, that isn't enough. Oh, I did have a version of Safari on here for a while, too. You know what they say, you can never have too many web browsers! 

I think my son is coming down with something. Today, after coming home from school, he told his sister that he can't watch Tom and Jerry because he had to concentrate on cleaning up. Yeah, he was cleaning up the living room. I think he may have been replace by a cyborg replica. I'll get back to you on that. 

Well , that is about all I have for today. Hope everyone had a great Labor Day!

I'm sure there are plenty of people I would like to meet. No one in particular stands out for me though.

I did get to meet Robin Williams. He's a super nice guy!

Labor day was okay. Spent it at home doing nothing as opposed to being at work doing nothing. :P

DC: now that I think of it, you may me the person I heard that about Robin Williams. I think it was a comment a while back. I had the same problem though, couldn't think of enough people.

I couldn't do it, either. Although, I keep thinking it doesn't have to be famous people. Not that thinking that made it easier. *L*

Thanks for the heads up on the google browser. I'd like an option that isn't fx.

And I cannot believe you're complaining that your son is cleaning! You should be encouraging that, Mike. The more he cleans, the less you and your wife have to do.

Mike said...

Cookie: Oh, I'm not complaining, I'm just in shock. I'm okay now though. :)

I read that Chrome doesn't have a Mac version yet, so I'm waiting to check it out...IF I do. I'm pretty happy with Firefox (just started w/3.0), and I'm already a big enough slave to Google as it is.

I couldn't come up with a list for Ten on Tuesday either, but Tall Paul more than made up for my dropping the ball.

Mike said...

Florinda: I heard that too. It's pretty bland, but I guess more stuff is to come.

Yes, your husband had a long list. He does well with ten on tuesdays.
