Wow, I just don't know how to describe that...

Weirdest corporate promotional video ever

Courtest of The Register

Dramedy or apocalypsia?

Well, went to my 10 year high school reunion tonight... it's late so maybe I should say last night, or maybe not. Anyway, it was pretty interesting, some people are doing cool things, others making a living, and others made babies. In one of the signs of the apocalypse, a friend from high school, Bennett, has had a child, with his wife of course, but frankly he was one of the people I did not see having a kid. Crazy. Also, talked to a bunch of other folks, had several drunks make half-hearted attempts to say hi, and found out Melissa is having another baby. I suppose it could have been worse, although some amount of cliche-yness still remained, but generally people were nice.

After the reunion, Dan and I went to Austin's sister's friend's housewarming in Allen Park. There was some *awkward* there as the girl's whose house it was, apparently was having sex with one or more guys, and her ex was at the party. Ye-ouch! It was interesting to say the least. Then I was tired and dropped Dan at his car and came home.

In the third leg of this story or whatnot, Friday night we went to see Harry Potter in IMAX. That was neat, but IMAX is not really necessary, and it's more expensive. Back to the movie though, I thought it was good, although if someone had no idea who Harry Potter is, they would be very lost. Hermione is hot. That's just to get hits. Cool.

I should go to bed now. It's late.

Worst Patient Ever!

I am sick. This sucks. I'm not sure what I have, but it definately involves a fever and a not-happy tummy. I've been sleeping most of the day, and will probably go back to bed soon. Blech.

Milhouse of cards

I actually received my PSP Wednesday, after I went to the DHL office to pick it up. Unfortunately the good times were not to last. I'm not sure how it happened, but somehow I managed to "brick" my PSP even though I was not try to do anything wrong, i.e. downgrade the firmware to run homebrew or burned games. It kind of sucks. So, I have to send it back to Sorny to have it replaced. But they're gonna send a new one, so it's cool.

Just heard the White Stripes version of "Walking with a Ghost". Weird.

I have to pick up my Birks from the shoe repair tomorrow, as I haven't been able to get there before they close during the week. I also need a haircut. Maybe I'll try the barber just down the street. I've determined that I am going to be doing a lot of errands near Christmas, because I have use or lose my vacation time by then. I need to make a dentist appointment, an eye appointment, and I might do some work on my basement then. That's when the "Hot Chicks Room" goes in. But it actually doesn't because there in *no* "Hot Chicks Room". *Wink*

I'm made of candy and butterflies and kittens...

You Are Not Scary

Everyone loves you. Isn't that sweet?

Why must I be at work when these things happen...



I am finally about to receive the fruit of my labors as I finally got all the referrals and approval for my "Free PSP". Unfortunately, I got the shipping notice from DHL on the day they tried to deliver it (today). I was/am at work and therefore unable to sign for the package. Ergh. I guess I'll have it tomorrow. Woohoo! "Free" stuff!

BTW, thanks for the kind words on Beckie's 'blog. I appreciate it, and you shouldn't have. No, really, it's too much. I mean it. Really guys. No, knock it off. Seriously guys, keep it down. Shut it already! Whoa. Sorry, got a little carried away in my fantasy "Mike Love-fest".

Arr! Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum... makes me dumb.

Stolen from various...

You scored as Captain Jack Sparrow. Roguish,quick-witted, and incredibly lucky, Jack Sparrow is a pirate who sometimes ends up being a hero, against his better judgement. Captain Jack looks out for #1, but he can be counted on (usually) to do the right thing. He has an incredibly persuasive tongue, a mind that borders on genius or insanity, and an incredible talent for getting into trouble and getting out of it. Maybe its brains, maybe its genius, or maybe its just plain luck. Or maybe a mixture of all three.

Did I forget to mention...

I don't think I ever posted anything about this weekend's dorkness. Well, anyway, Austin and I drove up to East Lansing to visit our friend John Machiorlatti. I think it only took just over an hour to get there. My car is teh fa5t3r. (Sorry to lapse into "leet" speak there. It's de rigueur when talking about your car on some of the forums I'm on.) So, back to the point. We were meeting up to play Magic: The Gathering, and also to see the house that John's parents had bought for his brother and him to live in and fix up while in Law School for the next 3 years. Both John and his brother (Dan?) are first years at Cooley.

We played Magic for a couple hours and then decided to get some dinner. We went looking for Mongolian BBQ, we eventually found it, not realizing it was in Okemos. There was a pretty long wait, so we wandered next door to Best Buy for a couple minutes. Eventually we got to eat, and it was good.

We then played a couple games after dinner and John also prodded Austin and I to buy firearms. John has a lot of guns, and I've been to the range with him a couple times, but I don't know if I want to actually own a gun. Then I might have to get a gun rack, and a pickup truck, and a hound dog, and chewing tobacco... and it goes on and on. Eventually we managed to say goodbye and head home. Austin has to work early Sundays so, we got back home around 11 and he went home.

I watched Hitch over the weekend. I signed up for the Blockbuster Online for one of the "Free iPods" or whatever (I can't remember which site it was for) and so I've been catching up on some movies. I also had Crash and Ocean's 12. I should be getting Lemony Snickett today.

In life, as in poker...

Sometimes as the game progresses, you have to lower your starting hand requirements.

I played poker with Austin and some of his friends last night. I've played with these guys before, and did pretty poorly the last couple times. This time though, I watched some Celebrity Poker Showdown just before I played, and some of the luck must have rubbed off. I ended up winning $5 for coming in second. I was pleased with my play. I actually ended up taking out 2 guys on one hand. That was sweet.

I see a little silhouette of a man...

Scaramouge! Scaramouge! Will you do the Fandango!

Please, for the love of all that is holy, you must watch this flash video. It is what happens when you mix LOST and "Weird" Al's version of Bohemian Rhapsody. Watch. Watch like the wind!

Lost Rhapsody

I almost peed my pants I was laughing so hard.
