like a really fun to-do list

Movies I Want To See Before I See Avengers (in no particular order): 1. Star Trek Reboot (because I keep meaning to rewatch — again — and I keep not doing it, and because it was epic on the big screen and I want Avengers to be that good, but maybe with a plot that […]

quote of the day

Monday, April 16th, 2012

From xkcd’s Ablogalypse: “In about six months, the word ‘Tumblr’ will eclipse ‘Blog’ in Google popularity. I doubt TV anchors will start talking about ‘reactions in the Tumblverse,’ but then again, I still can’t believe we got them to say ‘Blogosphere.’”

this is what happens when I spend too long on the internet

Sunday, April 15th, 2012

So… There I was, wasting time puttering around on the internet, and I followed a link to another link (and so on) and somehow found myself looking at this: (nabbed the pic from amazon) The actual name of this figure is apparently “Big Time Spiderman.” (Or, as Amazon lists it: BIG TIME SPIDER-MAN.) I’d like […]

a day’s worth of questions

Sunday, April 15th, 2012

From a coworker: “Are we listening to country music?” (Answer: YES) From a customer: “Is it safe to drink unpasteurized milk?” (Answer: IT’S LEGAL IN NH, BUT SO ARE FIREWORKS. KEEP IN MIND OUR STATE MOTTO IS ‘LIVE FREE OR DIE.’) From the internet: Is Avengers/toaster the next ‘I do what I want!’? (Answer: Some […]

movie review: Puss in Boots

Friday, April 13th, 2012

1. Kitten!Puss was SO VERY CUTE. ALL THE CUTE. 2. Other than that, my main reaction was ‘eh, what was the point of this movie?’ 3. Which made it sort of funny to see other people having that exact same reaction to the Marvel one-shot “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Thor’s Hammer,” […]

favorite typo ever

Friday, April 13th, 2012

Sometimes I just can’t resist sharing typos, whether they be mine or other peoples’. Here’s the latest: “…his control is tedious at best” Presumably, the intention was to go with tenuous, but I love that in fact, tedious works pretty well. It’s like the ultimate Freudian slip.

weekend to-do-list

Thursday, April 12th, 2012

Normally I have Friday and Saturday off, but this week it’s just Friday. So: pre-weekending! My laundry is sorted, my pinboard tags are up to date, and my music player is charged and ready to rock. As long as I don’t get MORE distracted by tumblr, I may have a relatively productive day off! SUPER […]

feels like forever

Wednesday, April 11th, 2012

We’re doing interviews at my workplace, and part of me is all ‘new thing!’ and part of me is like ‘ugh this is hard.’ So far I have learned that I am not very diplomatic (surprise!). Some things I probably should find a nicer way to express: 1. “We hired an outside person for this […]

movie review: The Big Year

Tuesday, April 10th, 2012

First of all, this is a movie about competitive birding. … That was pretty much my reaction. BUT! More specifically, it’s a movie with Jack Black, Steve Martin, and Owen Wilson engaged in competitive birding. Better, right? Although I couldn’t help thinking ‘I’d rather be watching The Avengers’ (man, that movie better be good!), I […]
