it’s Thursday, I’m in love

Thursday, March 31st, 2011

I really wanted to end the month on a more positive post, and then it seemed silly not to go all out and include some randomly misquoted song lyrics too! Things I Love Today 1. All the usual stuff I’d feel horribly guilty about forgetting in my acceptance speech — my family, my home, my […]

ranting post

Tuesday, March 29th, 2011

Full disclosure: I am a customer who asks stupid questions. But two stupids doesn’t make a smart, which is how I know these conversations were low on ‘thinking ahead’ and high on ‘huh?’ CONVERSATION 1 (paraphrased) Customer: “Based on the zero amount of knowledge I’ve provided you about my acquaintance, who is not here and […]

This is totally credited to gyzym, where I saw the link. Thanks for giving me something useful to post about! The Caps Converter (or, as gyzym calls it, THE FUCKING CAPS CONVERTER) How did I not know about this? …becomes… how did i not know about this? How Did I Not Know About This? HOW […]

DWTS ‘you can’t make this stuff up’

Monday, March 28th, 2011

LOL SONG LYRICS! “Haven’t you people ever heard of… clooooosing the door?” (They definitely did “closing the front door” at least once too — for extra LOLs.) Comedy Award For The Week: Chris & Cheryl “I’m actually *terrified* of Cheryl Burke.” -Chris …I couldn’t get down Chris’ whole commentary about the oak frame built by […]

Fic Rec o’ the Day

Monday, March 28th, 2011

I love sam_storyteller’s Neal and Peter. And his Elizabeth. And Sherlock. And John. And all of them. Pretty much I just love the idea of Neal and Sherlock running around London committing and solving crimes just for fun. Rematch, by sam_storyteller (copperbadge) Author Summary: “Neal and Sherlock’s rematch in London was the high point of […]

internet! I missed you!

Monday, March 28th, 2011

Internet connectivity has been slow-to-nonexistent over the past few days here at the abode, but now (thanks to the tireless efforts of my awesome family!) it’s back! And our new wireless password incorporates family trivia! Leading to the following question: Does incorporating family trivia into a wireless password: a) make it easier to remember, which […]

Movie Review: Wild Target

Saturday, March 26th, 2011

Unfortunately, this is one of those movies where every funny moment was put into the trailer, giving the impression of a hilarious comedy, when in fact, the laughs were few and far between. (The scenes from the trailer were still very funny; there was just a lot of other stuff between them.) It’s only an […]

fic rec o’ the day

This is the Inception AU I didn’t know I wanted. Arthur’s a grad student working on his dissertation! Saito’s enrolled at UC Berkeley! Eames collects action figures and watches BSG! (And Fischer gets them all to team up to extract from Cobb, except –whoops! — turns out he was lying about the whole thing and […]

best double take of the day

Wednesday, March 23rd, 2011

Context: I was visiting the building next to the building where I work — “next door,” we call it, which is a nice mix of factual and vague. Just about everyone who works next door keeps their doors closed, and has a white board or other messaging system with which to communicate with people. Actual […]

Hawaii Five-0: the sci-fi convention one

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2011

The only thing I really liked about this episode was the conversation about Danny’s salad, but I liked it enough to carry the whole hour. If they’d replayed it at the end, like in a blooper reel, it’s possible the ep would have hit my top ten.
