Oh, you saucy, minx-y 287 MB Illustrator file! Whisper sweet nothings into my ear and serenade me. OR I WILL KILL YOU.
Finished NaBloPoMo. Not a ferocious bang, but a wimpy whisper: http://tinyurl.com/2agy3l Resuming lazy “whenever I feel like it” schedule.
@jonathancoulton yep: twitter.com/ev/statuses/458217702
one of these days, I’ll get some *real* goals http://tinyurl.com/23l26j
@fluidpudding that’s a great idea, except that it’s 12° F out there and I’d rather die from crazy-lady stab wounds than freezing my giblets.
@fluidpudding and @schmutzie Yeah, I’m still here at work, hiding under my desk.
we fired our receptionist today. Holy drama. We changed the locks and people were actually scared to walk out to the parking lot after work.
Can’t decide whether to lift weights or go running @ lunch. It’s like Sofie’s Choice over here! ah, screw it, I’m getting a cheeseburger.
had pleasant, useful conversation with my insurance co. Combine this with my really good DMV exp. and I don’t know how to think about life
Doot Doot, Beep Beep http://tinyurl.com/2asfwe
I know that no one but me cares about this, but I feel the need to document it for the ages: My lunch salad today tasted like weeds and dirt
because of the TOXIC fumes, entire troop of children and I have retreated to a hotel. we have a kitchen for a change now!
I now have a ravelry.com account. Take that, all you “closed beta” wannabes!
Working on art for a character called “Mr. Persnickety”. I have found my muse in this little guy. He’s green, snooty and aloof. I love him.
Digging through work email and I find a message that something needs to be done “ASAP!!! ASPA! ASAPAAPA!!!” I’m going to bounce it.
My children are adding new words to the English language: http://tinyurl.com/2lsbep
This is my punishment for *something* I must have done: D/L over 20 GB from a .Mac iDisk. i think they throttle down to 9600 baud. Painful.
@ara_p trust me. She gets the “genius” from my wife. The evil *may* come from me. Maybe. I’d rather not say at this time.
oldest daughter got her ACT/SAT scores today. Pretty sure is is firmly in the “evil genius” category. I fear for the future of humanity.
@siracusa You get the “King of the Nerds” award for that one. E-books, DRM and Star Wars! Trifecta!
Hetero Man Crush for the Week: Colin Hay and not just because I’m currently obsessed with the early 80s.
This is why some people are childless by choice: http://tinyurl.com/26qtbr
kids won’t be quiet enough, so my wife has retired to The Van to take nap. Commence with “A VAN, DOWN BY THE RIVER” jokes as you see fit.
@RickMacMerc hey, that’s really nice. Maybe Santa will bring that to us this year.
Both wife and I are in bed, working, laptops in hand. We are like the modern version of the adults in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
My youngest daughter (4) cut her thumb EVER SO SLIGHTLY this morning. Just now: “Oh man! I’ve got some pain going on over here.”
IKEA. my flat packed Saturday nightmare.
came home to an empty house. Wife took kids to see a movie. I have nothing to do. Zero responsibilities. this is far too weird.
New hobby: When people twitter or talk about having an “inboz zero,” I immediately launch Mail.app and begin to shoot email missives at them
Him: You only just “discovered” Daft Punk?! WAKE UP, BITCH! Me: Um, I’m an old married white guy. Being cool isn’t in my vocabulary anymore.
zuhl: My wife is explaining the intricacies of certain aspects of contract law in the state of Utah to our ten year old. this will not end well.
zuhl: helping youngest daughter choose what to bring for Show & Tell tomorrow. Anyone know where I can get a pony this time of night?
zuhl: @schmutzie Good Luck! Happy recovery!
zuhl: @zeldman in the Terminal: defaults write com.iconfactory.Twitterrific sonicTwooshTechnology -bool YES
zuhl: @ the DMV. holy crap. it was easy, fast and even, dare i say, pleasant? my world view has been shattered.
zuhl: @emmastory That site is great, too: “I did not have dinges with that woman.”
zuhl: Those were special times. http://tinyurl.com/3yrb87 The last photo is MONEY in the bank, baby.
zuhl: reading anything on WebMD for more than 5 minutes scares the living daylights out of me. I HAVE ALL THE DISEASES IN THE WORLD.
zuhl: @apelad works for me… :-]
zuhl: New policy: Bounce all email from co-workers which assigns me to stupid and/or useless projects. “Confirm Bounce”? Heck, yeah!
zuhl: @Hicksdesign oh, boo! a thousand stinging nettles lodged in their private parts isn’t enough. lazy bastards.
zuhl: Just talked to a designer who *never* used QuarkXpress. Ever. Ah… to be young again. Going back to yelling at people to get off my lawn.
zuhl: Happy this morning for no good reason. This will both surprise and annoy co-workers.
zuhl: Dear Gratuitously Naked Conversationalist at the Gym: http://tinyurl.com/2ughuq
zuhl: @FiddleyGomme sadly… it kind of looks a little like me, if I wore a baseball cap. I’ll go back to my old thing later.
zuhl: I am just one of @luxutyluke ‘s sheep. Obviously.
zuhl: I almost got killed walking across the street. Yes, I was crossing against the light, but in my defense, I was thinking about something.
zuhl: Going running @ the gym for lunch. Maybe creepy Naked Conversationalist Guy will be there, too! Seriously, you have a towel, use it please.
zuhl: @FiddleyGomme can’t today. But some other time certainly!
