Time Machine: 1998

It's premiere season which means the Tivo is overdrive trying to record all of the programs I can't watch and none of the commercials I don't have to. Which is a double negative. But I'm still not going to watch the commercials. And since I have TV to watch and the rainy season is keeping me indoors, I have no adventures to offer today.

Tivo is by far the greatest invention of all time. If someone invented a diaper for cats that might be right up there and although no one has invented a commercially viable, hydrogen powered hovercraft with built in wifi, ipod and gps they have invented a time machine. Or at least a website that has archived webpages of just about every site ever.

I had the entertaining task of looking back at my companies website over the last few years on http://www.archive.org/ and jumped back to 1998 when a naive, yet fantastically moustached Jungle Pete started working for EDS. Ok it's a hideous moustache. I look like I belong in the Village People. And what's with the tiny little hat on my bald head? I look like an organ grinder monkey without the organ. More Everglades Adventures coming soon. In the meantime I need to go rescue the cat. My diaper experiment is not working.

  1. This has nothing to do with your stache but the boys want to know if an African Swallow can maintain air speed velocity, while carrying a one pound coconut?:)

  2. In order to maintain air-speed velocity, a swallow needs to beat its wings 43 times every second, right?

    Are they suggesting I look like Sir Bedemir without the knights armor? That would be a first.

    Man, you look like you worked at Disney and that they made you wear a fake mustache and beard AND the little hat. I also like how the shadow from your hat makes it look like you've got a raven on your shoulder. Pretty cool, Edgar! "Nevermore!"

    Really at least by now you've learned not to match brown and grey. Right?

  7. sadly that was not grey, but very washed out green cargo shorts. still not cool.
    That moustache would fit perfect in Paris, non?

    Washed out green cargo? Yeah, that stache could work here.

    So we both crapped out on baseball. At least, the Cards not making it wasn't a choke.

    How close is Port St. Lucie to Miami & the Everglades?
