And I Thought The Guy With The Batman Tramp Stamp Was Bad 2

Dear Guy Getting Out Of The Sauna While I Was Getting Out Of The Pool, 1. Your reverse mohawk with sideburns that go most of the way down your neck does not look cool, nor does it hide the fact that you’re balding. It makes you look like you fell out of 1997, and not ...

Getting To The Last Straw

I’ve written repeatedly about how I hate Sprint and their shitty shitty reception with the fire of a thousand suns, but last night just about tore it for me. I had what the phone kept telling me were four bars of reception and yet: I could not place an outgoing phone call for over 20 ...

24 Plays With D.C.’s Time-Traffic Continuum

There’s an amusing article up at the Washington Post, wherein the author points out all the hilariously inaccurate and wholly fabricated locations that 24 has used during its first season set in my ridiculous hometown of Washington D.C. The traditional, “In what universe can you get from the White House to Foxhall Road in five ...

The Curse Of The Oversized Shirts 3

Having lost a fairly large amount of weight, I now have a lot of stuff that doesn’t fit. I gave the vast majority of it to Goodwill, which is probably appropriate since that’s where I’m now buying most of the clothing to replace what no longer fits. However, I’m a bit torn about what to ...

When Computer Geeks Try To Hand-Write Things

I read about a website called YourFonts, which will let you make a free TrueType font out of your own handwriting. I thought, that sounds kind of fun, and maybe I can make something that will actually make my handwriting legible. Here are the results: Yep, that worked out well.

Two Weeks and Two Days

There’s wrapping, and then there’s sticking a fork in it. Starting tomorrow, I’m going to go work for 2 weeks and two days to stick a fork in it. By Good Friday, it should all be gone. The odd thing is, I still have to bring all my crap in, as if I were actually ...

On The Lighter Side 5

25 months and 1 day after I set out to lose 80 pounds I have lost…80 pounds! I decided a while back I want to try and take off another 20 to get down to a BMI of 25, so I’m not done working out like a nutbar or keeping a ridiculously close eye on ...

Quack

I went to take the trash out when I came back from my swim at the gym today, and as I walked past my apartment complex’s pool, I was a little surprised to see a pair of ducks swimming around: I’ve seen seagulls in there before, which didn’t seem that unusual since I’m only about ...

Never A Good Sign

When one of the actors starring in your currently airing series has a new job before you do.

DVR Break-Up: Heroes

It takes a lot to make me stop watching a show. Evidence: I have watched every single episode of ER since its premiere. IN FUCKING 1994. But I’m with Alan Sepinwall on this one: Heroes has lost me for good, and not because of anything in particular, but because of the sum total of its ...
