...Is up.


I'd never have used the word "t-bone" but at least I got him to remove "meatatarian" in his rewrite and about half of it is what I submitted on Tuesday. We compromised after I fought him. It's still somewhat condescending but his original rewrite was more condescending. He removed my use of the word "perpetuate" and replaced it with a synonymous phrase, presumably because he thinks people wouldn't know what it meant.

P.S. If you want to comment on it, please do it at the blog, not here. Thanks.

You have all seen this, right? It's geektastic. Every time I watch I experience a geekgasm, although the first time was the best. I believe I squealed.

I really like the blog 147xxxx, written by a Starbucks employee. Friday's especially amused me. Check out these gems from blog post titled, "Dear offices, please stop sending the stupidest person you have to get drinks for the whole office.":

Interns, if I ask you a question about a drink don’t stare at me for 5 seconds and then say whatever. I had this one intern who did this with every question I asked. Do you want that iced coffee sweetened? ”…whatever.” What size do you want the triple latte? ”…whatever.” Do you want the whip cream on the mocha frappuccino? ”…whatever.” If you’re wondering, I chose the more expensive options.

Also, don’t remind me seven million times that a particular one is for your boss and must be made right. I make all of my drinks right, thank you very much. Sometimes I have the urge to mess up every drink except for the boss’s where I would write “I made this one correct like how you asked!!! SMIILLEEYYY FACE!!” on the cup.

So far the funniest thing I've read all day.

One of those Hitler videos with the theme Facebook buys Friendfeed. I won't insult you by advising you not to watch if you'd be offended. But if you do watch and are offended remember that it was your choice to watch it.

Of course I realize that it's tasteless but some of it is funny.

Interesting in the age of blogging etc. I like the question "How would you define media?"


(Hey, maybe I've found a new use for my Livejournal, if only I could go back and make every single old post "private".)
