Staycation!

Tuesday, May 27th, 2008

As of yesterday afternoon, BW is away in Provo, UT for some sort of Linux cluster-fuck training seminar. I considered going because we’ve always wanted to see some of the sights in Utah, but we found out that everything we’d want to see would be way too far away from Provo for us to head […]

Off to see the…

We went to see Eddie Izzard last night!! OMG! I love Eddie, but have never seen him live before. The man is a God; if he comes to your town, do not hesitate, GO! Are there any people floating around out there who don’t know who Eddie Izzard is? I hope not. How to explain […]

Now that’s good…chewing?

Wednesday, May 21st, 2008

Darn you, Orbit gum company!! For all of my life, I have been Anti-chewing gum. It tastes good for 2 minutes, then you have to spit it out right away or else endure having a tasteless rubber cud in your mouth. Pointless and gross, right? But then the damn Orbit gum company came out with […]

Are we there yet?

• Well that sucked. But at least my work-week from Hell is done. I’ve invoiced all the hundreds of ‘tards that I needed to invoice, and only had one or two bounce back to me because the contact person retired or quit and no one thought to tell me. (Usually, I get like a dozen […]

A baby I’d adopt

Thursday, May 15th, 2008

Woodgie-coos, there’s a new baby tiger at the PGH zoo! And it’s mother is rejecting it, and it needs to be bottle-fed.  Poor lil’ nookums.  That’s infant care that I’d be happy to do!

That sound you hear…

is my job turning into a great Black Hole of Suck for the next week or so.  (I mean, like, more than normal…) If things are quiet around here, that’s why.  Don’t paste me on milk cartons. *sigh* Here, look at something happy

Tina, bring me the axe!

Go play

Friday, May 9th, 2008

No time for real content today.  Go amuse yourself at this amazing website: www.televisiontunes.com Amazing because they apparently have EVERY tv theme song EVER!  Or so it looks… Listen to themes you’d forgotten, listen to themes you remember from shows you’ve forgotten, study the many nuances of how the DALLAS theme changes from year to […]

“They killed my son over a dog!”

Thursday, May 8th, 2008

Yeah?…And??? This story has been the talk of PGH the past two days.  Basically some fuckup, while surrounded by cops, decided to take shots at a police dog.  He killed the dog and the cops killed him.  You start shooting at anything in front of cops, WTF do you expect to happen? Anyway so of […]

Help us, Robert Downey Jr. You’re our only hope..

Wednesday, May 7th, 2008

Saw Iron Man last night. I think a lot of movie reviewers out there need to take some Xanax and settle down; it was good but it wasn’t THAT good. But it was a hell of a lot better than I ever expected it to be, and more important, it has performed zillions of times […]

Imitation is the sincerest..*nom nom!*

Thursday, May 1st, 2008

Y’all know what a big Starbucks ho I am. But for the drinks, though, not the food. Their pastries look good, but 9 out of 10 times, they disappoint in taste. Except for one item that I ADORE: the reduced-fat banana chocolate-chip coffee cake. Oh, raptures! It’s sweet and banana-y and MOIST and dense and […]
