Not worksafe due to a kid who can swear more fluently than many adults I know.

Don't you hate it when there's a trailer for a video game and the graphics in the trailer are better than the in-game graphics?  :-p

I made a comment to a co worker that I didn't mind doing my share of lifting and helping out.  His response was that I didn't need to worry about it because I would get hurt and not be able to have babies.  That statement was so out of left field that I just stared at him for a moment.  And I couldn't think of a reply that wouldn't get me fired. 

I'm tired of men I don't know calling me baby and honey.

I'm sick of telling a man something only to have him go to another man for conformation.

I'm tired of male astonishment when I successfully cary out simple tasks.

Oh, and when I say that I can do something, I don't need to be doubted.  I know my limits and have the sense to ask for help if I'm in over my head.

I know that I'm not singing a new song here, and I know that not all men are pompous idiots, but some days things just get to me.  I'm obviously on my period or something. /sarcasm

Not safe for work for various reasons.  I can't figure out if this is a spoof or geunine.  Either way it's funny and reinforces my faith in human stupidity.

I had a brain dead moment.  I could have sworn that I had posted this like I mentioned to Buzzy's Keeper.  D'oh! 

Safe for work.

There is a Movie theater in Texas called the Alamo Drafthouse that has a strict no talking and no texting policy. One patron of this theater violated this policy and was made to leave. She later left a voice mail to the Alamo Drafthouse voicing her displeasure over her ejection with all the eloquence she could muster. The Alamo Drafthouse decided to turn her angry rant into a PSA thus proving their awesomeness.

This version here is uncensored and is NSFW.

For you Harry Potter fans on my f-list (you know who you are) out there.  I give you the rap battle between Harry Potter and Lord Voldemort.  Semi-NSFW depending on how strict your company is.

It's a tutorial of an ancient Roman hairstyle using authentic tools to create it.  I can see how the stitching of the hair would be both secure and comfortable.  Too bad I don't have anyone to help me try this.

Last Thursday, my town was buried under almost two feet of snow and the temperature was a record-setting minus 27 degrees Fahrenheit.  Today, that snow has almost entirely vanished under the spring-like sun.  The local forecast for Tomorrow is for a balmy 72 degree day.  If the area reaches the predicted temperature, we will experience a 100 degree temperature range in a single week's span.  Sometimes, I feel like I'll never get used to the Mid-West.

I don't like missing so much work but that extra foot of snow that was dumped on me tells me to stay home.  Ugh.  It is cold and Squee is hogging the blankets.  Once he gets settled in, he makes an amazing back warmer.  However, the damn cat feels that he must stomp on my head, steal my pillow and use my face as his own personal nose warmer before settling down. 

One thing that I'm tired of is people inquiring if it is "cold enough for me."  Social niceties dictate that I don't reply with "Why no, it isn't cold enough for me yet.  I still have some feeling in my fingers and my toes aren't quite frostbitten yet."  Sometimes, I wish I could get away with being more sarcastic to total strangers.

Last night, I was playing WoW (and isn't it amazing how your avatar can run lightly over snowy landscapes while loaded down with plate armor) and I mentioned in guild chat that I thought people who asked if it was cold enough ought to be stabbed with an icicle.  A guild debate followed where we discussed the merits of having a murder weapon that melted and weather or not we had already seen it on Columbo.

About half an hour after our discussion, a local friend who is also in my guild, called.  The first words out of his mouth after I said hello was "Cold enough for you?"

Does anyone who plays WoW know of an in game icicle that I can equip so I can stab my friend?

Sometimes, there are serious drawbacks to having an apartment over a garage with wood floors.  We have the main heater and a space heater in the bedroom and it's still a bit chilly today.  We aren't exactly freezing but it's a good day to wear a sweater.  Last night, it got cold enough for Squee to crawl under the blankets with me.  Squee *never* does that.  I let him crawl under the comforter and settle in.  Fair enough: it was a bit chilly and he hates it when his nose and ears are cold.  Then, he farted.  The little bastard.  I swear I heard him snicker as he ran out of the bedroom.

My carpool ride called.  She can't dig her car out from under the snow.  I guess I get to spend another day trying to use the cat as a foot warmer.  You know, I've had a few people try and tell me not to try to walk to work in this weather.  As if I've lost all sense of reason and self-preservation to trek three miles through deep snow and sub-zero temperatures.  Yes, yes, I realize that people are trying to look out for me but give me some credit.

I was lucky this winter in that most of the bad weather had missed the region in which I live.  Now I'm stuck inside while mass amounts of snow blows outside my window.  Hopefully, I can make it to work tomorrow.

Frank and I were wondering if we called up local pizza places and requested a delivery how long it would take to get hung up on. 

Also, tomorrow is Groundhog Day.  Does anyone else thing that the Groundhog won't even bother to leave his den?

For those of you who are still looking for that perfect toy to give to your child this holliday season, this isn't it.
