Listen To Your Friends 1

Especially when they tell you “if you have the same cold I have, don’t work out until you feel 100% better. You’ll just wind up feeling way worse.” Felt better-ish Wednesday, much better Thursday morning so I worked out, a bit worse Thursday night, worked out yesterday morning because I thought it was just the ...

Strike Two

Depending on who you read, talks between the AMPTP and the Screen Actors’ Guild either ended without a deal or completely fucking imploded tonight. You know it’s serious when Nikki Finke breaks out the clip-art alarm bells. So now, we’re staring down the barrel of another potential strike, this time by the Actors. A smaller ...

Sometimes, It’s Best To Just Give Up 1

I finally gave up on a couple shows I’d watched every episode of earlier this year, Prison Break and Desperate Housewives. While in DH‘s case I hear I may have given up right before the show creatively resurrected itself, this spoilery item indicates I checked out of Prison Break at the right time. Because seriously? ...

An Odd (Healthy) Choice

I eat a lot of Healthy Choice frozen food. I am a terrible cook and I’m trying to lose weight, so their products appeal to me. One of their more respectably tasty entrĂ©es is their “Chicken Margherita”, a nice little chicken and pasta dish. For years, it was served in the traditional small, flat box. ...

When It Rains, It Pours

I had put my MacBook Pro on that counter before, a thousand times before. I had no reason to think last night was any different. No reason until it came tumbling down, open, about 10pm last night. And that’s when today’s nightmare began. I thought it was fine at first: Everything was working properly, no ...

A Delicious Breakfast of Failure

I was famished when I got back from the gym today, so I poured myself a big bowl of milk and Cheerios. I got about three bites into it when I realized, “Gee, despite the fact that it smelled okay, this milk tastes awfully sour.” I realized how sour as I was pouring the bowl ...

Unemployment Update

Sweet God, I’m already so fucking bored. Maybe I should consider this unemployment program in India, at least that’d be a change of pace. Courtesy Dave Barry’s Blog.

Let This Be A Lesson To You

Do not neglect your Netflix queue. I’d done so after going through three seasons of The Wire and nothing but for the last couple months. The last two discs were checked in today, and then I got the following: I forgot I’d even put this in my queue. I so do not have enough pot ...

Damn You, Chiklis! 1

I’ve been catching up on the first couple seasons of The Shield, since, thanks to the cheap-ass deals I get at the Fox studio store, I have all 5 seasons available on DVD. I’ve also got the whole 6th sitting on my TiVo, but I hadn’t gotten around to watching the first 3 seasons until ...

Yep, That’ll Do It

I had several people ask me why, instead of the pegleg, I didn’t just get a scooter. These assholes are a big part of why not. The other part is I don’t think I could get one of those things up the stairs.
