whitewhine: “Ugh, there is this one commenter on my blog who is always trashing my posts. It’s like, ‘If you’re going to rag on everything I write, why do you keep reading my blog every day?’” -Whine by Me Quite possibly one of the funniest blogs ever, and this one is especially true.
Jamie dangled a possible trip to New York City for my birthday, and the chance to see “Wicked” again with my absolute favorite choice as Elphaba - Kerry Ellis, who is only there for a few months before she goes back to the London production. When we crunched the numbers, it just wasn’t possible. :-( Maybe I’ll get Photoshop or a PS3 instead.
Jamie: What's that book that's about burning books? Fahrenheit 411?
Jeff: You mean "Fahrenheit 451?"
Jamie: Yeah, that's it. I thought maybe it was 411 because there was "Fahrenheit 911"
Jeff: That was a movie.
Jamie: I know, it's still about the same.
Jeff: Why are you asking?
Jamie: It's one of my favorite books.
Jeff: How could it be one of your favorites if you don't even know the title?
Jamie: I'm not good with names. I know the story!
Patrick and I went for a walk tonight, and it was very warm, but it felt good to get out and exercise. I used to be doing well, but I’ve become more lazy. This needs to change immediately, and I hope I can keep up the walking every night type of thing. I’ve got a good route, and we even jogged for a little bit. While it made me legs feel like they were on fire, I’m sure it...
Today, one of my biggest pet peeves arrived in the mail. I hate thank-cards from children who cannot write. I received a card from my nephew Carson (who just turned 5) and it read: “Thank you very much for the keyboard and showing me how it works. Love, Carson” Now, I’m sure that Carson does love the gift and is enjoying it, but he didn’t write the note. I would much...
An easy way to waste a bunch of time, but very cool.
jamiea: Today is the perfect day for some mini golf and custard for date night :) She actually wants to play Mini-Golf? She never wants to play mini-golf with me because I’m uber competitive - this is great!
I’m not doing it. I’m just not. I know I say the same thing every year, but this...– Michael Ian Black on the topic of What I Would Be Thinking If I Were Billy Joel Driving to a Holiday Party Where I Knew There Would Be a Piano (via about-today)
This is a repost from my other blog, but I thought it deserved to be on both: I have noticed, seemingly more often, that people are caring less and less about grammar. In recent emails from work, I have seen improper uses of apostrophes (including a plural word that already ended in “s” that had an added ” ‘s “), commas, and my biggest pet peeve, improper use of...
What we could really use is a Caller I.Q.– Jason Love (via affremblequotes)
My secret splurge
bethneu: When feeling down in the dumps many will reach for a tub of sugary ice cream. Not I, I went out and bought a bag of cheesy popcorn and mello yellow. If I bust open the double stuff oreos that I’ve already packed you know its bad news bears, but things are looking up and I’ve chosen to splurge (calorie wise) on these two luxury, artery clogging items. PS It has to be Okie Dokie Cheesy...
