Girlfriend was drunk. Took her home. She’s puking her guts out. I’m ok. Yankees are leading. Good night!
Sell Mo your old iPhone
antikris: baxterp2: Anyone have an older model iphone they want to sell me?
katiebakes: Midway through a dinner that began with a curried squash soup (listed on the menu as You Can’t Curry Love) Mr. Gaudet got up and told the assembled guests about how after a recent Capitol Hill screening, he and Ms. Pullapilly had met with Joseph R. Biden Jr. Breaking into a smile so broad his dimple seemed permanently etched in his left cheek, the bridegroom said, “The vice...
I am pretty sure that today is a pancake day.
(via marseeah) Carolyn and I just finished off our strawberry pancakes. This time, instead of mixing all the batter ingredients in the one bowl, I whipped up the eggs & milk separately, and then simply folded the wet mixture into the dry (Bisquick) mixture. The results were fantastic - fluffy, moist, perfect pancakes. (Now we’re going to play Wii Sports)

So if the Federal stimulus package meets its goals for job creation/saving (as it is currently doing) and if the economy loses a ton more jobs than expected anyway (because jobs are not fungible, as we can see in the incongruity between skyrocketing unemployment and a wave of unfilled positions with high skill/experience requirements), then Obama is a failed Socialist liar, right? And if that...

I am just catching up with the #motrinmoms thing. I watched the “controversial” ad. And you know what I think? Spend more time with your babies and less time bitching on the Internet about your victimization by silly commercials. Jesus Christ.
The Rise & Fall of The Nintendo Wii →
marco: I have no idea what Nintendo’s next console will look like, but I don’t think they have any great options. The novelty that made the Wii such a powerful fad will remove most people’s motivation to ever buy another system like it. Well, as usual, there won’t be much of a use for that hardware platform when it’s even slightly old. So: Nintendo will come out with a new...
Because it’s Friday, pick a topic and run with it: How hungover am I today? (Bonus points if you lost something last night) Flu shots cost $30 retail. Explain. None of us will ever work again. Wouldn’t it be crazy if someone filmed a shot-for-shot remake of The Shawshank Redemption at Riker’s Island, without permits, by smuggling a camcorder in after committing a petty...

G.E.’s Bid to Connect Computerized Health Records - Bits Blog - NYTimes.com I would be happy about this, but we seem to have already paid for it.
I am officially congratulating Nick on his award of a food truck party for 25… not only for his competitve efforts (I have attempted many silly things over the years, in the relentless pursuit of competitive victory), but because it’s more than I’ve gotten done today. Also, I had carrots for lunch.

CKone: but the prize for chasing the truck around is a party for 25 friends catered by the food truck of your choice. Hope he invites us to that, and picks a good truck. BriVan: My big mouth has already assured today that we won’t be invited to that.
It is ironic to refute your own praise using the best headline ever.

You know what the next big thing in sleazy marketing will be? Sneak junkets. It’s like a cross between a promotional house party, a junket, and a surprise party. Companies will coax people (free shit, obvs) into throwing these sponsored, catered house parties and inviting their friends to participate so that they can hand out swag and tester products to all the attendees (and perhaps do...
I dreamed that I got another job interview today, but then the guy interviewing me turned out to be Cliff Lee.
I booted Emily Miller from my Facebook friends list, since it is now appararent to me that I have never met this person. If I have, she’s done a very bad job of reminding me of it, and a very good job of looking like an indiscriminate friend-request spammer. Most of you are much better at this sort of thing: if I only know you from Tumblr and you add me as a friend, you usually reveal...
Is that Mykelti Williamson? Yes it is! Oh joy! With Kiefer and President Cherry Jones too! This should be good. I’m not even happy to see Chloe or Kim (who’s EVER happy to see Kim?), I just want that trio.

Happy 15th Birthday, Banner Ad! →
catbird: Sorry I forgot your birthday this week, Banner Ad. I meant to give you a call but I was out getting drunk with Pushdown, Site Reskin, and Giant-iPod-That-Fucks-With-The-Navbar. Don’t worry, it’s not like I like them better than you now or anything. You all actually suck equally. Happy belated birthday! My least favorite ad is still the one where they replace entire Sunday Styles...
But it won’t be Robin this week. I don’t have a problem with the selection of who has been sent home, though. Classic crime of not knowing what you’ve done wrong. Since it’s not too much of a spoiler, Kevin and the Voltaggios are still around, and still strongly look like the top 3. So really, there’s three more people below them that can be eliminated in any order...
Natalie Portman is so...
