Technorati is indexing me again! They had to make a code change to fix the problem with my blog getting stuck in their queue. Kudos to Eric M. and the guys at GetSatisfaction.com where they have "community powered support for Technorati".
Well, they're "sorta, kinda" indexing me anyway. It's on a 24 hour tape delay or something. So I never get picked up by Memeorandum because they pull from Technorati and Technorati has stuff I posted yesterday listed as my latest blog entry. And that's old news to Memeorandum.

So last Saturday night we're hanging out with some friends at their beach house. Sitting on the dock, drinking a few beers, shooting the breeze. A couple of their neighbors drift on over, introductions are made, we're all having a good time.
My wife brings up the Google indie film project "Life in a Day" wherein folks from around the world are sending Ridley Scott clips of their life on July 24th. He'll pick and choose "the best ones" and show the results at the Sundance Film Festival. She goes around the table asking each person "what makes you happy?" thinking this might be good fodder for a clip.
After the usual banalities (my wife, my kids, my boat) from the 8 or so people there she ends up with me. Now I've had a few beers. I don't usually talk politics with strangers. But for Google? Why not "tweak" them a little!
So I look into her camera all serious and say, "I know what will make me happy. The first time I hear 3 simple words, probably the greatest three words ever to be uttered by man."
Now everybody is looking at me. "What 3 words?" someone asks. Very slowly I say,
"Former. President. Obama."
My host bursts out laughing, and there are good natured chuckles from a few others.
But one middle-aged woman goes white, like all the blood has drained from her face. She pushes her chair back, stands up, and says, "I'd best be going."
And with that she hustled out of there faster than Chuck Schumer making a beeline for a microphone.
Oh yeah, we definitely sent that clip to Google!
Also picked up by The Rhetorican, who found happiness.
And Obi's Sister agrees, these are sweet words indeed.
Picked up by Linkiest!
Thanks a million!
