Snort!

Thursday, September 30th, 2004

Sing the following sentence to yourself: I'm a math nerd... and I think the war is dumb, so this hilarious to me! At New York's Kennedy airport today, an individual later discovered to be a public school teacher was arrested trying to board a flight while in possession of a ruler, a ...

Hooray, pointless fiddling!

Katy had been asking me to set up her Netflix queue on her blog for a couple weeks now, and I finally got around to it tonight. Pretty neat feature! I added it to my own blog, now you can see what terrible movies I'm waiting for and how slowly ...

Three open letters.

Dear Andrew Hutson, Kindly quit your whining. Yes, I know you long for the prestige that comes with my tacit approval-by-blogrolling, but as I explained last night, I am loathe to clutter my list with dead blogs. Oh, Andrew Hutson, if you only knew — so very many of us pick ...

I also want a pony.

Is it just me, or do we live in a very wish-driven society? I don't know, it just seems like every time I turn around, it's time to make another wish. I see a fountain or a well, I drop a coin in, I make a wish. I see a ...

This will do for “new content.”

Ross's rules for naming improv teams should also apply to basically everything. I just had this conversation with Jeff, who wants me to design a website for his promising local band. goinakillya: yeah I want it to be www.thejimmycushingband.com DrScottJennings: bands with people's names in them are gay. goinakillya: but he's not in ...

An open letter to Gmail

Saturday, September 18th, 2004

Dear Gmail, Boy, do I love your new innovative approach to e-mail. It's fantastic. I've made it my new primary address, I dig it so much. Big ups to you, Gmail. Now please stop giving me invitations to give to my friends. I'm all out of friends. Hell, I'm all out of ...

High standards and a tradition of excellence.

Boy, I'm glad that I don't put up with this crap here on this fine weblog. No sir. People tend to search for a name (presumably their own) or some string of text that would actually produce search results, in most cases. And for that, I'm thankful, and can experience peace ...

All over the place!

I'm right about blog-comments-as-anathema, and blog godfather Dave Winer has my back, about halfway down the article. I suppose I should take a moment and thank the Durham Police Department for preventing my birthday situation from escalating to the point where a middle reliever would throw a chair at me. I ...

I hate you, Ross White.

Wednesday, September 8th, 2004

Seriously, Ross White, I hate you. You're a twit, and I hate you. You know why I hate you? You know my weaknesses, and you exploit them. True, you're insightful enough to see I'm an evil genius, yet you choose to take small spots to undermine me rather than join forces ...

She’s a liar, and I’m in love.

So Katy was in town for Labor Day weekend, and we did some quality hanging out. On Sunday afternoon, we ate at the new Chinese buffet in Carrboro on Main, which seriously kicks the ass of 35 on Franklin in Chapel Hill, then we went to the Varsity to see ...
