leaving on a jet plane
This place is not a place of honor… no highly esteemed deed is commemorated here.
leaving on a jet plane
LAX is a shit hole, but almost infinitely superior to LHR
Guy behind me: I'm sitting in the only fucking window seat without a fucking window!
Sheffield is cold and I am nesh
Saw Lemmy from Motorhead at baggage claim. How cool is that? Not very :)
There are still Wimpys. Who knew?
I wonder how many direct messages @d gets. Think I sent one just now.
Just got some spam addressed to Dear FirstName. It's personal touches like that that make it so effective.
The case of my laptop is (mildly) electrified. Problem much?
back in LA just in time to catch the Friday rush hour. \o/
Made it to Hollywood. Home would be in sight were it not for the great big mountain. Tired now.
House has Ethernet. How cool is that? Would have been nice if it were labled.
How can Liverpool v Real Madrid be in HD but not widescreen? In England even SD home matches were 16:9. Only away legs were 4:3.
I have decided that provolone is the ultimate sandwich cheese.
<smug>Madeline's parent/teacher conference: exceeds grade standard across the board</smug>
Boo is one today. Where does it go? Birthday girl on present:
Half time at the school talent show: the dualing Elvi have left the building!
Maddie rocked the talent show! Never enjoyed Achy Breaky Heart so much in my life!
Considering going down to basic cable to avoid further iCarly repeats
Talent show take two. Dualing Elvi: still awesome!
Talent show still made of win:
I want an aardvark invite. If only I had some kind of social search service to help me find one.
Obama will be on Leno on Thursday. I suspect traffic & security related access problems given that my house is 300 yards from the studio.
It's St Patrick's day. We're all Irish now.
I still do this, but for me it's always English A Level: xkcd.com/557/
Done with F1 (again). Also, article is wrong. 1991 points system caused the Hamilton "problem". Old way valued wins more. is.gd/nTdd
I have missed the heat all winter but am now strangely shocked at how, er, hot it is now that it's back.
Just missed Obama arriving at NBC by like 30 secs. Oops.
Caught him on the way out.
Chelsea. Of course.
The US approach to tax is insane.
Why have I taken so long to try out Hulu? It's the nuts.
Also Kings seems like a winner too.
Forget source control and wikis. What work's VPN is really good for is streaming Radio 5's football commentary.
I am liking Kings. TV worth actually watching on the TV each week. Nice pseudo shakespearian vibe. Watch it get cancelled now!
Accosted by legion of God botherers on Hollywood blvd outside the premier of some movie called Cross which appears to star a gurning Jesus.
Nothing beats watching crazy women telling their stories of giving birth when they didn't know they were pregnant. Discovery Health FTW!
Reading CVs. Fuck me it's dull. And I thought writing them was tedious.
Looking for a Java/Blu-ray programmer. Someone included this picture and got themselves into the maybe pile :)
Pro tip: Put the best stuff at the TOP! If the coverflow preview doesn't make me want to move you into maybe, you won't get the job.
Still baffled that in the age of new Beetles, Mustangs, Chargers & Cameros there is no MPV that is an update of the classic VW camper.
I believe that this posting will show up here some time soon: twistori.com/#i_believe
I have completely forgotten how to write VBA. This is not making my excel scripting any easier.
Anyone tried boxee? Is it worth installing ubuntu for?
You wait 3 years to see a celebrity in Whole Foods in Glendale and then when you do it turns out to be Mario Lopez.
Finally watched Dr. Horrible. Very good. I love Joss Whedon is.gd/176o
