I was reading the newspaper in the waiting room at the brake repair specialists earlier today and discovered that the Dandy Warhols are playing tonight. My mon is still visiting and offered to watch the kids so I could go. My wife was not interested, but hell yeah I am! It took me an hour to get here because it’s a new club (new to me) and I was lost for twenty minutes. I caught the end...
There was a long period where Tumblr was banned at my gym. I couldn’t get a 3G signal here and their wifi network always redirected me to a page saying, “Access to this website is prohibited. It is a known source of viruses and malware.” I seriously doubt the malware thing. I assumed that the huge volume of porn on Tumblr got it blacklisted. Which is funny in a way. That...
Just found out my dad is into Skype. That’s weird, right?
It’s my last night in my 30s. My parents are visiting from Australia to celebrate with me. My dad has this restaurant in Melbourne that he always visits. They’ve named a drink after him. His regular. A Negroni topped off with champagne. Well, he’s teaching me how to make them right now. Cheers!
Why, fax machine, why?!
Whenever I read a phone number off someone’s business card or website, I ALWAYS end up dialing the fax number instead of the phone number. So annoying! Why do they even list the stupid fax number anyway? And why am I drawn to it?
It’s a common fantasy to wonder how our lives would be different if we could roll back the clock but retain all the knowledge and wisdom we have gained. There are several movies along those lines. Here’s a twist: what if you could go back in time as far as you wanted, but for each day you went back, you would lose a day off your life. So if I wanted to go back 20 years, I would die...
Suds n Suds
I enjoy drinking beer while I fold laundry and do other housekeeping tasks. So it would only make sense that a laundromat should sell beer too. This already exists, right? There HAS to be a laundromat slash bar out there. Where people can drink a beer, watch the game, meet other people, etc. while the laundry is going. I guess in Amsterdam you could have Suds n Buds, but I’m not sure...
Physics is like sex: sure, it may give some practical results, but that’s not...– Richard Feynman, another tidbit to celebrate his birthday. He would have been 94 today. (via jtotheizzoe)
Do you ever fantasize about what it would be like to time travel back into ancient history? And how powerful you would be, armed with your knowledge of modern technology? Except we really wouldn’t be that powerful. I mean, sure we know about gunpowder and penicillin, but do you know enough to actually do something? Especially using the ancient tools at your disposal? Maybe you could...
My parents gave the kids iPods for Christmas. It was very nice of them. The kids can play their favorite games on their iPod and quit bugging me to play on my phone. (which I’m sure you can understand makes me uncomfortable.) So I just got around to syncing their phones with the computer. Previously, they just had the games that we downloaded directly to their iPods. I didn’t want...
I feel bad that I haven’t been on Tumblr much recently. I’ve been busy at work and at home. I have a lot that I want to post, but I haven’t made time to do it. I have been tweeting a little bit more, and enjoying it. But even so, I stayed off Twitter this weekend and realized yesterday that I missed Synchronized de Mayo. I know it’s silly, but I like Synchronized de Mayo...
A lady here at work is disgusted by the cleaning lady, who uses the same gloves to clean the toilets that she uses to clean everything else. Someone else pointed out that she wears the gloves for her protection, not ours.
