Every time I hear it, it gets stuck in my head for like, ever. I hadn’t really heard it recently, so I forgot what an insidious ear worm it really is. It’s going to be running through my head for the rest of the week.
I speak, of course, of “Gu-STAH-bo Alma-DO-var.”
I honestly cannot wait for your next birthday.
Was waiting for an ice cream lorry to come along and cream him.

Ah, memories of sitting in my apartment, yelling at “Gosford Park”. “I CAN’T HEAR WHAT YOU TWITS ARE SAYING!”
You don’t know her. She goes to a different school.
My recap: Italian italian italian italian. Italian? Italian. “I have a girlfriend.” – Dale. Italian italian.

“Can’t wait to take pictures of this with my Zune!”

Corrine Bailey Rae lyrics.
My thoughts exactly, petepetepete.
Also: “This October – Get Malled!” is my new favorite thing ever.
I was on in 2003, and that was definitely the most stressful part of the weeks leading up to the taping. I ended up telling a story about my cat eating a grasshopper. Not my proudest moment. (And then I came in third.)
“Your maternal unit engages in coitus in exchange for credits, Trebek.”
She’s Having a Baby (And Giving It A Dumb Name, Probably)
Psshht. My Nintendo Power Glove left those things in the dust.

Am I wrong in thinking that the expense of taking five days to live in a tent negates any would be savings? Sternos are expensive, yo.
I’m going to start a Facebook group “This Comment Needs More Upvotes”.
Well done, Monsters! I came close this week, but twas not to be. But still, very thankful for the 85 upvotes I received! In other bittersweet news, I am starting a new position this week after a year of unemployment (“What recession?”), and am fairly certain my internet time will be limited at best, at the beginning anyway. So if you guys don’t see me around as much, just know this is me, thinking of you.
Podcasts I Listen To The Day They Update: “This American Life”, “WTF”, “Doug Loves Movies”, “Savage Love” (best theme song ever!), “BS Report” (warning: sports), “Firewall and Iceberg”, “Pod F. Tompkast”.
“Nerdist” is good, a notch below those. Like “Fresh Air”, if the guest is good I throw it on immediately, otherwise I wait for a slow day.
