Me [thinking]: Oh my god, that’s the sweetest thing anyone has said to me in a very long time. Me [out loud]: Correction: it’s a lightsaber.

All-Nighter Hardly Working: He’s Right Behind Me
Today I happened to be walking in the door as the mailman was opening the building’s mailboxes and I got a chance to watch him in action. Basically, he feels his job is to take envelopes and magazines and smash them into little balls in the bottom of each box, even if there’s enough room to slide them in. I watched as he slid two envelopes into my mailbox and then—without curling...
Last night I stopped at the little deli near my place to grab some milk and just as I was paying I suddenly decided I wanted a candy bar. I rarely buy candy bars, but I had an intense craving so I caved and bought a Milky Way. As I was paying, I thought, “I don’t need to be eating that.” When I got home I looked in my bag and only the milk was there. The cashier forgot to drop...
2008-2009 TV Season Announced →
Thankfully, two shows I was worried about (The Unit and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles) are both returning. Smallville is also going to return, although now that Michael Rosenbaum is leaving the show, I’m not sure that’s such a good idea. I was also glad to see Cavemen got canceled—I never watched it, but I was always pissed off that a show based on the Geico...
Family Guy: Throwing a frog out the window (via fling) If there’s one thing Family Guy does really well, it’s the long joke format. Just keeps going and keeps getting funnier.
For the first time in my life, I bought Office. Never once, going back to my first computer in 1990, have I ever bought a copy of Office. I always used borrowed copies or cracked copies or corporate copies or anything and everything to avoid paying for it. But today my copy of Office: Mac 2008 Home & Student Edition arrived, ushering in a new era. Back in my Windows days I NEVER bought...

This morning NPR described Clinton’s supporting base as “undereducated, blue-collar, suburbian whites.” And she’s proud of this? Not only proud, but counting on this base to solve her mathematically impossible win? How embarrassing.
MRTV Episode 5
It took forever to paint my living room. I have an alcove kitchen, so I had to paint above the cabinets and on the side of the refrigerator too, which was a pain in the ass. As I was going around taping the room I noticed for the first time in five years just how many painting mistakes were made by the people who renovated the apartment years ago. There’s white paint everywhere. I was...
Do you think when car salespeople are younger they yearn for the day when they can finally get that job that allows them to be badgering, stupid, lying, annoying assholes? Have you ever met a car salesperson you liked, let alone could even stand being in front of or talking to for more than five minutes? If you’re a car salesperson, do you wake up in the morning and think, “Today is...
I went to Chicago this week and spoke with Brian for six and a half hours about iPhone and mobile development. There weren’t many people in attendance, so the presentation turned more into a very long conversation about issues with current mobile technology, what the iPhone has done to the landscape, our mutual love of Apple, and more. Nothing beats getting paid to talk about stuff you...
