Overly talkative manager: So, to lighten the mood a little on this call, what did you do on your day off yesterday, Steve? Did you get some mini-golf in?
Steve: I was at my uncle's funeral.

whatever happened to predictability

The milkman, paperboy, and evening tv?

On a federal holiday when I have to be in the office, I am reminded of better days:

really, FDA, really?

This is just utterly ridiculous.

speaking of childhood...

This video best enjoyed while delirious:

Go, baby, go!

return to your childhood

Anyone remember the amazing game of Lemmings??? Dig! Dig! Build! Build! You can now enjoy this game in your browser.
WARNING: Though a joyous game, depressing thoughts may ensue when you realize the similarities between these guys and your office environment.

absolutely stop-me-in-my-tracks mesmerizing

Wow. Thanks for the heads up, Pegleg.

impractical word of the day

Every day I get a 'word of the day' e-mail from Merriam-Webster. Lately, they haven't been all that enlightening. For example, today's word:

Word of the Day
January 29


: too evident to be doubted : unquestionable

Not only do we all already know the meaning of this word but more importantly it has no practical use. WHO uses that word whose name is NOT Sherlock Holmes?? Seriously? Seriously?

Thanks, but no thanks, Mr. Webster.

Update: Thanks to the commenters, I will acknowledge that indubitable is a word used by some and most certainly 'indubitably' is used by such greats as The Simpsons. However, I will refrain from accepting that indubitable is a word worthy of a word-of-the-day. I'll take the likes of primogeniture over indubitable any day.

lessons lost

If only I had had this how-to guide during my club years..

A few gems that should've been the subject of an after-school special:
  • "Guys can sense fear"
  • "Don't be offended if he just walks away in the middle of the song. Don't let that get to you."
  • "After grinding, you may feel a little risqué and sexy! Give yourself time to cool down. You don't want to do something you'll regret."

And if guys thing they're missing out - check this out.

because seriously... who needs to hang around?

Special thanks for this one to my brother, a D&D nerd but proud of it.

eye care for the secret agent

My new contact lens 'care solution' is complicated enough for 007.

When does my contact case self-destruct?

a pox on vista

No I haven't tried beta, but Vista just sucks THAT much.

the descent of the touron

In anticipation of the Inaugural swarms about to invade the District, I came across the perfect term to describe the invaders, part tourist, overwhelmingly moron: the touron.

Thanks, EavesdropDC.
