Ha ha ha!

by Hubert

On Friday, I went into the city to go to my sister's birthday "party" at the Shake Shack in Madison Square Park. I put "party" in quotes because it was outdoors and consisted of commandeered tables and chairs. And cake.

She has a lot of friends.

I didn't get to stay for the whole thing because a co-worker of mine knew I was going to be in the city and texted me about meeting up. I ended up having dinner and dessert with her and her boyfriend.

So today I was having lunch with my mom.

Me: I didn't get to stay for all of Robyn's party, I had to meet a co-worker.
Mom: A girl?
Me: And her boyfriend.

I bet my mom was happy for that split second before I killed it.

Currently playing: Starcraft 2, Puzzle Quest 2

Video Time!

My co-author has had a rough week, so here is an adorable video of a girl playing with sea otters!

Co-Workers are Fun

by Hubert

I noticed that a co-worker had a digital picture frame in his cubicle the other day. Most people, if they have a picture frame, have a non-digital version. But what good is that? Just one picture!

So I remarked "I should get a digital picture frame and load random internet penguin pictures onto it."

Said co-worker choked on his water.

I was serious. Today, I bought this one, a ten inch frame with motion detector. And I bought a 4 GB card for it. And it can play video.

This is what happens when I take my plush penguins home.

Quote of the Day

by Hubert

I was reading this review of a new computer monitor and read the following quote:

The ASUS VG236H was my first exposure to 120Hz refresh displays that aren’t CRTs, and the difference is about as subtle as a dump truck driving through your living room.

I want to use this analogy in a conversation.

Well, alright then

by Colleen


I'm just going to go ahead and get this out of the way right now. Jets vs. 49ers in Super Bowl XLV. 49ers take it, 31 - 10, kicking off the start of their '10s dynasty - fittingly, in Cowboys Stadium.

This gives us the entire season to bash Rex Ryan; so let's get started on that, eh.
