Caution: May Cause Choking

Friday, January 9th, 2004 | Bloggity goodness | No Comments

Found a new (to me, anyhow) weblog today that made me laugh. Unfortunately, as I was eating lunch at the same time, it nearly made me choke on my sandwich. Read with caution.

Dear God Damn Diary

A fitting tribute

More stupidity on the airport front. ‘Coz we all know how bettas like to take planes hostage n’ such.

Dear TSA: Thank you for wasting my tax dollars. Fuckwits.

A coworker and I once did something like this to our boss’ office while he was on vacation. (Our variant: Aluminum foil and plastic wrap and not quite this extensive.)

What did I take away from the experience?
1) It’s a lot more work than you’d think.
2) Eames chairs look pretty cool when covered in aluminum foil.

Hope he’s got good walkin’ shoes

Ooh. Here’s a cool project — Seamless City. It’s “a 30 mile long continuous portrait of San Francisco” shot from the pedestrian’s point of view. This guy’s really got his work cut out for him.

The crappiest severance package in history. Wow. Nothing says “thanks for all your hard work” to departing employees like dolls. Either way, the package is disappointing, but the dolls kind of tip it into the “insulting” category.

Looks like the crane games in Sheboygan are giving out bigger prizes these days. You can even get yourself a 7-year-old. Good deal for a couple of bucks, if you’re in the market for one.

Extra bonus: It all happened at a Piggly Wiggly, which is always fun to say.

An Experiment

Ok. So The Powers That Be have increased my storage for this here little blog. Let’s see if that helps with the random disappearances.

It’s possible my blog is just practicing to be a magician and I’m just not aware of it. Sure wish it would learn some of the “magically making things appear” tricks instead of the other way around, if that’s the case.

At any rate, I’m scrounging up goodies. More entries later today, I suspect.
