I actually don't have anything interesting to write (I know, it's shocking since everything else on SFTC is so captivating), but I have to get some new content up here because the Google Ad that's been running on SFTC the last few days is driving me nizzuts. (Oh, no I dihn't!)
Ever since the last post went up -- the one that was chiefly about John Ritter's doctors, but briefly mentions the name of Eliot Spitzer's favorite hooker -- the ad banner over there in the right column has been running a link to a website featuring info about and photos of Eliot Spitzer's favorite hooker. I can't mention her by name, lest the ad continue appearing. So I'm hoping an entry about something completely unrelated will get those tiny little Google Ad people inside my computer (how do they fit with these new thin screens?) to come up with a new banner that has nothing to do with Eliot Spitzer's favorite hooker.
Of course, having the word "hooker" in here three -- now, four -- times probably won't help the cause.
So that's a long-winded way of introducing this question: Can everyone just cut it out with the wacky cellphone ringers? Make it ring like a regular phone. No more Bon Jovi. No more songs-that-only-exist-because-someone-composed-them-as-ringtones. No more Fur Elise. Just make it ring like a regular phone. Then answer it. We get it. You have a cellphone. It rings. BFD. I don't care how jazzy your little electronic-toned melody is. Just stop.
Better yet, stick it in your pants and put it on vibrate, so nobody has to hear it at all.
That "stick it in your pants" thing is going to trigger some funny ads, too, isn't it?
