Miss Blogger: I have a terrible habit of having no... →
missblogger: megburns: Until Irene is straight up blowing out my windows, I will feel confident that what’s really coming our way is a glorified rainstorm. I’m the same way. What’s a little rain and a little wind? It’ll be fine. I live one the third floor and am 30 miles away from any major bodies of… When I was living in Houston, my apartment was 50 miles from the Gulf coast and I...
Ok, so I finished The Hunger Games and I didn’t hate it. I’m actually kind of torn on how I felt about it. I found the story and the characters and the themes fairly compelling but at the same time, felt like it wasn’t particularly well-written. I mean, I guess it was well-written if I had trouble putting it down, but there was just something about it that I didn’t...
Moving into our new place on Sept. 2. U-Verse can’t do an install until Sept. 16! That’s going to be a brutal two weeks.
AT&T has the stupidest ass security questions ever. My four options are: Who is your favorite childhood hero? Umm…none. What is your favorite restaurant? This changes weekly Who is your favorite actor? Ditto Who is your favorite singer? See above How about something that doesn’t change? You know, like my mother’s maiden name, or where my father was born, or the name...
I’m supposed to fill out this form for work today except the dumbasses who made the form didn’t leave enough room for the answers they want. For example, in one blank, they want 75-150 words. Of course, the blank allows for about 37 words in 8-point font. Should I provide 30-40 word answers on the form that fit in the blanks or should I write full answers and just attach a word...
Should I read The Hunger Games?
The next two Mickey Haller books that I want to read are both $14.99 for my Kindle and I refuse to pay more than $9.99 for an e-book. Since The Hunger Games is only $4.69, I was thinking about giving it a shot. I’ve seen plenty of you rave about it, but I’m inherently skeptical of anything characterized on Amazon as “Children’s Fiction”. Am I wrong to be skeptical...
I’m going back to the apartment tonight. Elena is in Dallas all week and she demanded that I sleep at my parents’ house the last two nights, you know, in case the burglars wanted to come back for our coffee mugs or something. Not sure if it was the being burgled or the staying at my parents’ but I have just felt homeless since Tuesday so hopefully going back there tonight will...
Craigslist needs to start charging $1 to list something in the apts/housing section. The amount of spam from apartment locators is absurd and constitutes 99% of the posts.
In response to Lacey’s question (since my iPhone is the closest thing to a computer I have right now, I can’t link your reply), they crowbarred the front door open.
So I just rushed home because our apartment was robbed. They took two TVs, two PS3s, and two laptops. They maybe took some jewelry but they missed the good jewelry and Elena’s wedding ring. Oh, and our renter’s insurance is only liability. Son of a bitch.
I’m bored. Ask me shit. Please.
I fucking own at dance offs. For some reason, our pub quiz team has a tendency to wind up in a tie for 1st or 2nd at the end of the night, meaning I have to compete in a dance off for the tiebreaker. I won my fifth straight dance off last night, thus further proving the age-old axiom that a fat guy dancing is just funnier and more entertaining than a normal-weighted girl dancing.
I just had to fill out my bio for this conference next March where I’m giving a presentation. Referring to “my wife Elena” kinda freaked me out a little bit. Not in a “ohmygod why the hell am I getting married, mista mista get me out of here” kinda way. More a “wow, I really am going to be married soon” kinda way.
50 Book Challenge
27. The Brass Verdict by Michael Connelly 28. Everything is Wrong with Me by Jason Mulgrew (couldn’t pass up the .99 Kindle download) 29. The Help by Kathryn Stockett Goodreads tells me I’m just two books behind my 50 book pace. I might actually pull this off.
Someone, I presume her husband, just posted pictures from the facebook account of a friend who died a few months back, causing her to pop up on my news feed. Creepy as fuck, yes? Also creepy, and quite attention whorish: people who write on dead people’s facebook walls.
Did you know it costs money to post job listings on craigslist now? I was going to post a listing for a new law clerk I can give all my bitch work too but they want to charge me $25!
Warning! Skip this post is you don’t want to hear about my sex life. So The Girl had a procedure done on her lady parts a month ago, the result of which being that I wasn’t allowed to have sex for a month. (I’m sure it had other implications, like for her health and shit, but I had trouble focusing on anything she said after “we can’t have sex for a month.”) ...
Why am I hungry?!
nomorenicemaggie: I ate 4 Krystal burgers after midnight. I should not be hungry. During college, my roommate and I drove to Memphis to watch Mizzou play in a baseball tournament. We had never had Krystal before (we were both from Texas and Texas isn’t really the South food-wise), but we ended up eating it 5-6 times over the course of the weekend.
We’re going to have our 51st day of triple digit temperatures today and there is no end in sight. I’m moving to Canada.
50 Books Update - Half way there!
22. The Narrows by Michael Connelly 23. The Closers by Michael Connelly 24. Echo Park by Michael Connelly 25. The Overlook by Michael Connelly Clearly it was a Harry Bosch kind of month. Now I’m trying to bang out The Help before the movie comes out and the sequel to The Lincoln Lawyer.
Why do pasta recipes (ok, really more directions than recipes) call for so much water when the pasta all just floats to the top of the pot?
