My wife is picking up danger burgers, skinny fries and fat fries. Why two types of fries? So I can settle the question of which is better, once and for all.

All is well in the world.

[editors note: danger burgers are fatburgers. we tend to only get them when the roads are icy for some reason, thus the name.]

I saw a fancy lady with a fancy salon haircut pick her nose on the bus this morning. She was pretending to scratch the bridge of her nose, but the nail of her thumb was doing some digging. Then she wiped it on her fancy slacks, and continued with her text-messaging. I thought that was it, but then a few minutes later, she went back...

I had an interview today. It lasted for three hours and at the end, they introduced me one at a time to all 40 people in the company and the CTO said, "I think you will be a great fit here."

I'm exhausted.

Dear mjudge,

Take one last look at your penis.

i still can't get the right click to work for me. maybe it's because i am on a mac laptop and don't have a real right click, but option click usually works. maybe you could change it to space bar or enter? that would mess up your cute mouse picture though.

HA!!

I love those potatoes.....maybe someday i'll make you some.

I do love sex.

Ah, Friday. It's 5:30, and the work day is over.

I worked on a couple drafts of my resume yesterday -- as (insert insightful observation about working at home is both boring and thankless.) Anyway, about the resume, which objective is better for securing an interview?

I haven't picked up the Freak yet. A couple more books to finish before I'm allowing myself to get more books.

Smart always make me twitch. Gifted? Creative? Inventive?

I've been slacking on my settlers night organization. Sadness.

I'm frustrated. I ordered 3GB of ram for the Netflix thing way back on Friday, but it won't show up until tomorrow.

I've been playing video games instead of doing actual work. It's less fun than you might think.

You know what you need? Camping! Still haven't heard back -- give me a call!

Sell it! Duh! Or find a way to patent it, and then license it off.

We looked at 14 houses and townhouses tonight, trying to find ones that weren't shitty, but were within the meager budget our loan lady set for us. Four were in the same complex that Strongmad's girlfriend used to live in, back before she quit her job, moved in, and became his personal love slave.

One of the four was $70,000 cheaper than...

Well happy birthday, yo. Hope your present is finally finding something in the way of a condo that's to your liking. And doesn't drain your pocketbook in the process.

Do people still have pocketbooks?

HAPPY bitrthday!!!

Good: At a bar in MGM Studios, the Ambassador of Epcot bought us free drinks. That was really cool.

Bad: We sat down at an upscale sushi restaurant in Epcot and immediately smelled old urine wafting around. It wasn't possible to tune it out, that's how bad it was. Thirty minutes later (after finishing their dinner), the mom at the table behind us...
