The origin of Dot Com ...

In ancient Israel, it came to pass that a trader by the name of Abraham Com did take unto himself a young wife by the name of Dot.

And Dot Com was a comely woman, broad of shoulder and long of leg. Indeed, she had been called 'Amazon Dot Com.'

And she said unto Abraham, her husband, "Why dost thou travel far from town to town with thy goods when thou can trade without ever leaving thy tent?"

And Abraham did look at her as though she were several saddle bags short of a camel load, but simply said, "How, dear?"

And Dot replied, "I will place drums in all the towns and drums in between to send messages saying what you have for sale and they will reply telling you which hath the best price. And the sale can be made on the drums and delivery made by Uriah's Pony Stable (UPS)."

Abraham thought long and decided he would let Dot have her way with the drums. And the drums rang out and were an immediate success. Abraham sold all the goods he had at the top price, without ever moving from his tent.

But this success did arouse envy. A man named Maccabia did secrete himself inside Abraham's drum and was accused of insider trading. And the young man did take to Dot Com's trading as doth the greedy horsefly take to camel dung. They were called Nomadic Ecclesiastical Rich Dominican Siderites, or NERDS for short.

And lo, the land was so feverish with joy at the new riches and the deafening sound of drums that no one noticed that the real riches were going to the drum maker, one Brother William of Gates, who bought up every drum company in the land. And indeed did insist on making drums that would work only with Brother Gates' drumheads and drumsticks.

And Dot did say, "Oh, Abraham, what we have started is being taken over by others."

And as Abraham looked out over the Bay of Ezekiel, or as it came to be known "eBay" he said, "We need a name! that reflects what we are."

And Dot replied, "Young Ambitious Hebrew Owner Operators."

"YAHOO," said Abraham.

And that is how it all began. It wasn't Al Gore after all.

Tornado Experience

Well, there are tornado warnings in northwest Georgia right now. I just spent a few hours with Sheena and she's had a tornado experience today. On her way to her car after school she was called something fairly nast and was pretty shook up by it. After quite some time talking to her on the phone and then visiting with her at her house, she seemed to feel better. Then after that I go and say pretty much the stupidest thing I could possibly say. I don't know why I said it and I realized what I said right afterwards, but needless to say she was not pleased. She asked me to leave and after trying to cry/hold back tears I left. I hope I can make up for it soon. She should get a nice surprise sometime tomorrow. If not, I'll be very upset with a certain service. I just wanted to die after I said what I said. If there was anyting I could do over that would be at the top of the list ... by far. I've done many stupid things in my life but that would be the harshest, most memorable one for me. In any case I'm sorry and I hope that Sheena will somehow see it in her to forgive me, especially since our families will be having dinner together tonight.

D&B for Sheena's B-day

Well, today I took Sheena to D&B as part of her birthday present. We would have gone on Friday--her birthday, but it was wayyyy too busy. Anyways, we had a good time despite a slight misunderstanding.
