Local Laryngitic Leper Alarms Barista

Speaking of shutting me up, I seem to have lost my voice. Professionally, not a good thing. I sound like a dolt when croaking out orders for my team. It sounds like sort of a cross between a difficult puberty and a ghostly haunting. . .

My local baristsa seems to think it may be contagious, she now utters "Dios mio" whenever I arrive in her line for my morning pickup. I have tried to allay her germy fears, but alas, my throaty utterances only make it worse, so my charming assurance, "Really, I'm not contagious" comes out sounding like "You will die in three days time. . ."

Looking at it from a strictly cynical wit point of view, losing my voice is not necessarily a bad thing. For the moment, it helps keep my acidic musings in check for when my "appropriate comment" filter is overloaded with all the neat things I could say, but shouldn't.

I hate being sick. It seems like more often than not this last year. On the plus side, I can still scribe dazzling titles to my posts, (maybe I should be on staff at the New York Post) which tells me I still got a little life left in me. . .

How to shut Sarcasm Abounds up

A dinner at Morimoto last night, too much wine and Japanese cocktails, preaching on about the future of search marketing , blah blah blah. . . Apparently a little known effect of combining those two liquors together can turn Sarcasm Abounds into a self-righteous zealot.

I talked until I was hoarse, and now my voice has been reduced to a husky, Kathleen Turner-esque timbre to it at the moment.


Collini out.

Google Real time search works!

Well, well. It works as advertised:

Less than 5 minutes to show at top of results. I find that impressive. You know what this means, my sarcastic niblets. . .
I can saw what I want and broadcast to a global audience in real time!

Hello Readers.

Ok, I admit, it's been awhile. It's not that I don't have anything snarky to say, it's just that I have a lot of other stuff do do now. In Colorado, I could finish a days work by 11 am, giving me plenty of time to muse. Now in NYC, I gotta move my ass to to keep up.

All that may be interesting or not, but the main reason I dropped by today was to see if I could prove if Google's real time results were working yet as advertised.

So, let's say something that should be considered unique content:
Sarcasm Abounds triumphantly returns to his sarcastic throne, to mete out cynical judgements and justice on the numbed masses.

Sufficiently interesting, Let's see what the Google algorithm thinks. It's 3:25 EST on December 9th, 2009. I'll check back in when I see it post to top Google results.
