Watching Fido, Sunshine Cleaning, and rewatching past seasons of LOST on Netflix online. Eating a crapload of sushi. Listening to it rain outside.

I’m seriously considering installing a webcam at home so I can see what my cats do all day. Is that an invasion of privacy?
skatelin: disjectamembra: i weigh about 160. i will be down to 155 constant by the end of the school year. i would like be at 150 constant. i am shooting for that but 155 constant is a good consolation choice. let’s do it! starting p90x again in 3 weeks. oh lordy lord. No no no! Do not worry about your weight, worry about how fit you are! People don’t even need scales, we shouldn’t...
If you don't like the weather just wait a minute
You know why living in New England is awesome weather-wise? Unpredictability. Most people hate it, I love it. Mother Nature keeping me on my toes :) My buddy lives 30 minutes south of me and got 10 inches of snow today, another buddy lives less than an hour and got 2 feet. I woke up to 3 inches which were promptly washed away by the rain and my boss who lives 10 minutes from me had over 10...
When I came back from President's Day weekend,
spiritguide: my Billy Mays picture was gone. :[ Ok…that’s wrong. People that steal suck. It’s even worse when you know the person that stole is someone that is probably living close by. Such a creepy feeling. Sorry to hear that :(
How to Powerpoint
Clueless person I work with: What is Powerpoint?
Me: It's a program you use to create and show slideshows and presentations.
Clueless person I work with: How do I get it?
Me: You already have it.
Clueless person I work with: No I don't.
Me: Yes, you do. Everyone has it.
Clueless person I work with: I've never used it.
Me: That doesn't mean you don't have it. You do. Go to Start, then Programs, then Microsoft and you'll see it there.
Clueless person I work with: How do I create a presentation?
Clueless person I work with: I need a presentation.
Clueless person I work with: Can you make one for me?
Me: No, I have no idea what you are doing it on.
Clueless person I work with: Well I don't know how to Powerpoint so you need to do it.
Me: What I need is for you to...*1...2...3...* go and try it yourself.
This is the same person who doesn't know how to turn on a laptop. Or use a thumb drive. Or how to turn the volume down on PC.
I made a protein shake this morning before I left for work. I forgot that the water that was in my shaker cup had a lemonade packet so I had some nice Double Rich Chocolate protein that had an awful lemon hint to it. Eh could have been worse.
Worst movie (compared to it's book) ever
If someone tells you that Angels and Demons is a great movie, this person is not your friend. Run from them. Run screaming. If you compare it to the book it’s like they are two totally different stories. The drastically different story wouldn’t bother someone who never read it. BUT HOLY FUCK, it’s almost completely different. I get it - budgets, storylines, audiences, they...
Hell yes bring on the snow
It’s supposed to start snowing tonight sometime and might not stop until Saturday. I hope it’s cold enough to snow because freezing rain sucks balls. Give me 3 feet of snow over half an inch of ice to drive on any day. Note: if you aren’t from a place that normally snows, I should take a video of your average supermarket on a day like today. It’s like people heard the...
things you should never, ever ask a woman.
wanderlusts: sosteadyasshegoes: what did you do all damn day? YOU ATE THE WHOLE PIZZA? where do you want to go for dinner? what the hell am i supposed to get you for your birthday? it cost how much?! Yes to all of the above. I bolded my favorite. I can promise you that I will never have an answer to that particular question. OMFG…’where do you want to go for dinner?’...

Just be good
I don’t understand why some people in this world think it’s ok to treat a complete stranger like shit based on their job. This weekend I saw some woman bitch out a gas station attendant because she actually gave him too much money when she prepaid. She gave him $20, thought she gave him $10 and when it went to $20 she wanted the $10 back. Ummm…lady, you have $10 worth of gas in...

spiritguide: Ben Gibbard is not the only human being who sounds like Manchester Orchestra. Actually, I can’t really think of why you are ONLY playing Death Cab for Cutie and The Postal Service on my Manchester Orchestra station. Stop it. There are other bands. Believe it or not. Maybe there will be some love soon, Rhonda OMG…anytime I have Pandora play Kings of Leon, within about 10...
Katie West: Canada →
It’s funny living on top of the United States. Strange in many ways; ways you won’t understand if you’re American. You don’t understand why we Canadians always giggled at that picture that said, “We’re bigger and we’re on top. If this was prison you’d be our bitch.” We laugh because this isn’t… Sometimes the way people in this country act makes me sad. Not as a citizen of the United...
Dear Craigslist ad posters:
Please fucking get back to me. Within the next month or so. I’ve been waiting two damn days for not one but two people to respond to be about cars I’m interested in potentially buying. You’d think that people that post their cars on Craigslist would be a little more on top of their email situation. Or maybe I’m just always in front of the computer…
(almost) done in 90 seconds
I played with fire last night. I had a Redbox movie that needed to get back before the 9pm deadline and could have done it prior to seeing some friends but I decided I could still find one in time after seeing them. I should have mapped out the area a bit before deciding this, because at 8:50pm I was flying around trying to find one. I knew the general direction of a grocery store that should...
I just had the best damn Mexican fast food the great state of New Hampshire has to offer. Real Mexican - not that Taco Bell crap. A place were kids off the street, families, and people in business attire all come together to enjoy damn good food. It was more than excellent. It was Mexcellent.
Fighting for peace is like screwing for virginity
Best book I’ve read in a really long time. I feel blessed to have seen him twice, both times with my dad who reminds me of Carlin in many, many ways. This book is kind of the insight into his genius. Such a great book, check it out.
How to be a douchecanoe by Tiger Woods →
Tiger Woods is scheduling a small meeting with some friends on Friday to talk about his future plans. All plans he has for the rest of his life should revolve entirely about not being a douche. I don’t care if he’s been in sex addiction rehab for the last several weeks. I don’t care if he is ever going to golf this season. I don’t care if he ever golfs again. Why? Because...
If you won’t be better tomorrow than you are today, then what do you need...– Rabbi Nachman (no idea who this is)
Every time I watch Lost and check Lostpedia I feel like a moron, like I wasn’t even paying attention at all. I think it’s humanly impossible to notice absolutely every little thing, every easter egg, every hint, every tiny clue. And yet I keep trying. I think I’m going to have a mental breakdown when the show is over.
lady88: Sometimes I think people follow me just because they have a crush on my wife and like to look at all the pictures I post of her looking cute. This is most likely a true statement. Nah, I follow both of you actually because you both seem cool as hell and have wicked senses of humor that match mine. And maybe a bit of that too.
The target I'm aiming at
You know what day is the best day to listen to Coldplay? Everyday.
Waiting for it to snow is like a birthday party when you’re a kid - you never quite know what you are going to get until you show up. Sometimes you get shitty presents (freezing rain/slush), sometimes you get everything you want (perfect amount of snow to drive through but not too much), and sometimes you get nothing. I’m pretty much cool with anywhere between 3 and 36 inches, as...
Relativity in New England
It’s a scorching 37 degrees out, the sun is out and it feels like 60 to me. We’re supposed to get 8 to 10 inches of snow tomorrow, but two days later it will be in the mid 70s (aka 42 degrees). Ahhh New England weather, always throwing curveballs.
