Shamalamadingdong! What a FABULOUS IDEA! I can picture it now …

  1. Anger Mondays: These would be wonderful! I could just spend all day being royally rotten and mean to everyone! I could ridicule without remorse! I could tease and taunt and bullyrag and vex at will! I could say whatever the hell I wanted and not care who was crushed! I could … well … I guess I do that anyway. All right. So Mondays would be a wash. That’s okay! There’s always …
  2. Lust Tuesday: I could flirt with every person I meet! I could think of nothing but sex sex sex all day long … er … okay. So Lust Tuesdays would be rather similar to regular Tuesdays. Maybe I could try to be more overt about it? No. I don’t think I could. Damn.
  3. Pride Wednesday: Oh I could really get into this one! Hump day? Hump me day! Wednesdays are for reminding you how much cooler I am than you! I will spend each Wednesday talking incessantly about how terrific I am! I will feel all-powerful and walk as if I’m taller than everyone I see! I could ramble about things that are important only to me and assume everyone else cares! Crap. I do all that anyway. No matter! I will do it with zest!
  4. Envy Thursday: A fine day! I can just groove on how much I wish I had any sort of design skills! I can loathe all you creative uber web designers and your ability to use that damn chunk of the other side of your brain that I don’t have! I will boil every time I see you do something funnier than me! I will … I will … oh man. I do this all the time. This is starting to get annoying.
  5. Gluttony Friday: ahHA! I know gluttony. Me and gluttony are simpatico, brother! Fridays will be spent getting FAT and drinking and doing whatever the hell I want and lots of it! Waitresses and bartenders will fear me on Fridays! I will be a consuming whore! I can … Dude. Okay. I will act like I do every other damn day of the week.
  6. Avarice Saturday: Oooh! Avarice! Scrooge McDuck! I can do that! I can rub it in your face! I can tell you how awesome it is to be a computer programmer in the year 2000. I will make you squirm with my thorough knowledge of all things computery! I will mock your lame attempts at utilizing computers to their full potential! I will roll around in a bed full of comfy sheets! Oh all right. Yeah. I already do that every day, too.
  7. Sloth Sunday: Lazy? You want lazy?! I can be lazy. I can do nothing for hours at a time! I can waste endless hours staring at the monitor and chatting with people all over the world. I can not start writing a book! I won’t even think of picking up my guitar! I’ll read the last page of Sports Illustrated three times and then leave the magazine on the back of the toilet! I won’t take out the trash!

Dude. I’m going to hell.

What Is This? is the personal weblog of me, David Vincent Gagne. I've been publishing here since 1999, which makes this one of the oldest continuously-updated websites on the Internet.

A few years ago I was trying to determine what cocktails I could make with the alcohol I had at home. I searched the App Store but couldn't find an app that would let me do that, so I built one.
