I have been tweeting from my phone for a while now. Today I am writing my first mobile blog.

Of course I won't be doing this often but on weeks like the last few I can make small updates about what I'm doing.

Right now I am making fajitas for dinner. I an cooking them on the grill because they are better that way. Dr Awesome would be proud. The thing is I am waiting for the timer and feeling pretty impatient.

In a society where I can write to the world while I an cooking there should be no boredom, but I am. I think that tells up a lot about what is wrong with us.

What do you think?

I'm sorry, what? The page took an extra ten seconds to load and I started to daydream... And then I forgot what you wrote.

So, how are you?

Nick the Geek said...

I am ... hey look a shiny red monkey butt

This is a new personal best in all-time short blog posts.

My mom can't pronounce the word "fajitas" to save her life. She says "juanitas".

So the title of your post is "I don't know how to make a title from my cell phone." Huh?

Timer? You don't do the thumb test? What kind of geek are you anyway? AB would be disappointed.

GMTA - I'm doing tacos but not on the grill. I get too distracted by the bunnies in the yard.

katdish,
What do you expect I typed it out on my cell phone and there is a limit to my character count for texting.

I know she is Japanese but ... why "juanitas?"

Candy,
Yeah I added that in after the fact. Until that there was no title.

The timer was for the estimated cooking time of a flat iron steak on each side and veggies. Done is measured by the thumb test. After the second 7 minute the steak wasn't done so I gave it a couple more minutes and tested again. I pulled everything off and piled it onto the steak then made home made guacamole and started slicing my veggies. The steak had rested for a few minutes when I cut into it and it was a perfect medium. Nice big pink strip in the middle but no red juice running out. So tender and so good.

Also AB would be proud because I use a chimney starter instead of lighter fluid. I love my chimney starter.

It was very considerate of you to let the steak rest after its terrible ordea.

Nick the Geek said...

Helen,

It's very important to let meat rest. All the juices are flowing and if you cut right away it will bleed out and be dry. Let it relax and it will be nice, tender, and juicy. Just like after a spa day.

TWSS *snort steph style*

just as long as it didn't taste like chicken

Billy Coffey said...

Oh man, I really need one of those cell phones that will let me mobile blog. Everyone's zooming past me, and I'm lying here like a turtle on its back...

Nick the Geek said...

Candy,
I was wondering who would go for the TWSS on that. I was actually betting on katdish.

Billy Coffee,
I posted this from a regular old cell phone using texting. I am upgrading to a Blackberry but without the data plan so I will still have to use regular SMS texting for my tweets and blog updates.

Steph @Red Clay Diaries said...

I missed the chance to do the TWSS. But Candy, I appreciate the snort shout-out.

Glad I have a reputation for something.

Nick the Geek said...

Steph,

I had figured you for a close second. Honestly Candy was a come from no where finalist.

Candace Jean July 16 said...

You guys have grossly underestimated my cat-like reflexes, despite the fact that I'm old enough to be everyone's mother. YEOOOOWWWW. Pffft.

Nick the Geek said...

Candy,
Not your reflexes ... I figure your at the top of your game with the wedding right around the corner and making tons of chex mix. I just assumed you are classier and less apt to go there.

Candace Jean July 16 said...

Monkey butts, et al. can zap the class right out of you. I used to be all poised and polite and maternal. Then I ran across HLAC and my alter ego came out.

Nick the Geek said...

Candy,

Well that's all katdish's fault but she's unlikely to apologize since she will be so busy egging you one. I'll just have to say sorry for her.

Helen said...

Says the man who made me chase monkey butts on FOTTSP!

jasonS said...

I've never tried the mobile post, another reason I need an iphone or something similar.

I laughed at Katdish and the "juanitas." I have a friend back in Oklahoma who calls them faj-eye-tas (long "i" sound). That'll raise a few eyebrows when you're ordering at the Mexican restaurant. Ahhh, I miss that sick pervert.

Nick the Geek said...

helen,
No that was katdish's fault. I promise she told me to and I felt compelled to listen. Powerful the dark side she is, yes.

jasonS,
I did the post from a regular flip phone that has a standard 12 key touch pad. I have become pretty frigintastic at texting from it but I'm upgrading to a blackberry for productivity needs including but not limited to the full keyboard and calendar sync options. I hate that my calendar is split between 3 computers and I never know what I'm doing if I run into someone in town without my laptop on me.

You can't talk like that in OK. I think there are as many if not more Hispanics (mostly of Mexican origin) per capita there than Texas.
