Disorderly Desks and Other Things

Posted on Updated on

I do believe I have a serious problem, particularly pertaining to my desk(s). I simply cannot seem to keep them organized. I have a fairly decent system. Books go in a pile in the corner, pens go in that cup, other pens go in that other cup… more pens go in the other three cups. (I have a lot of pens.) I just can’t seem to maintain that system. It’s never a conscious rebellion; I just place something on my desk, and soon it’s invited all of its friends and relatives to the party. “Oh, hello Laser Pointer! I heard that we’re having a Hang Out on Chris’ Desk Party,” said the stapler to the laser pointer. 

It’d be pretty awesome if my desk was somewhat sentient. I don’t want it to be completely so, but maybe just enough to the point that when I placed something out of place, it would rebel and knock it off or incinerate it or something. “RAWR! You do not belong here, shoelaces!” *fwoosh* And thus I had to buy new shoelaces… again. 

Though, I suppose that could be a problem. Bunny Has a Book - Poorly Drawn Lines If my desk were intelligent enough to distinguish between acceptable objects and not, then I might have larger problems on my hands than just untidiness. The Night of the Living Desks. Also, desk civil rights? 

But seriously, I’m not sure that I’ll ever really solve this problem. I think it might be genetic. Somewhere in the Human Genome Sequence is a thread for tendencies towards having untidy desks. I’m sure all the important scientists are working on the problem now. Right? Of course right!

And now for something completely different.

I feel that I have neglected Pop Tarts for far too long now. My heart has yearned to write of them, and my taste buds have longed for the sensations of their delightfulfullness and magnificence. My toaster has sat waiting patiently, yet mournfully. My cabinets, though by no means empty, have long looked as though they’re missing some vital component. These very words pain me to write, yet I feel that I must. Maybe I’ll pick some up at Walmart today… 

Bye for now!

The Best Webcomic Ever

Posted on Updated on

I know, I’m a bit late on finding this one, but here it is.

I have a lot of apologies to make. Not that they’re required, of course, but I still feel obligated to get this out there.

I… have a new favorite webcomic. It’s not a new webcomic by any means, but it is amazing. When I say amazing, I mean that it is the single best compilation of images, plot, and dialog that I have ever witnessed in a comic. Ever.

Dr. McNinjaPVP, Nedroid, XKCD, Gamer Cat, Sandra and Woo, Lackadaisy Cats, Loading Artist, Awkward Zombie, Heavenly Nostrils, and all the rest… you guys are great. I highly recommend each of you to my readers. None of you, however, offer a multiple doctorate-holding, practicing physician, dinosaur riding/punching, and lumberjack-fighting ninja protagonist. I have thoroughly enjoyed all of the read-throughs; I still hold that Lackadaisy has the best art, and I am still biased towards PVP’s storyline and character set, but Dr. McNinja, you are the best.

I salute you all in your comical endeavors, and I apologize greatly to all of you who have been displaced. Lackadaisy Cats, you now hold the number two spot, right above PVP.

Dr. McNinja, you are awesome.

That is all.

Awesome April Fools’ Jokes

Posted on Updated on

The Post-Game Report

Ok, well, this has nothing to do with sports or anything like that. This, my friends, is a post-“April Fools'” report.

I really did enjoy April 1st. Google Nose, Youtube shutting down, toasters that tweet and make logos…. yeah, my kinda internet.

Here’s a run-down of my favorite jokes yesterday.

Google Nose:

I’m sure a lot of people saw this one, but I think it’s mention-worthy. Google introduced a technology that allows you to smell your search results! How awesome is that? Well, just be careful what you search for…

Rhett and Link

This was probably my favorite prank of the day, and it might even still get you if you’re not careful.

Super Toaster

This was shared with me by a friend of mine. I would be very tempted to buy this toaster if it were real.

So epic.

Winning at Youtube

Youtube threatened to pick a winner and shut down Youtube.com. They proclaimed that the site would be re-opened in ten years with a single video: yesterday’s winner.

Others

Twitter announced a new service, Reddit made everyone on the site mad, and Steam drove a few gamers crazy.

Me…

Friends

And, I had a little fun of my own. I actually topped out my record number of visitors/views yesterday with an application for best friend! Unfortunately, due to budget constraints, the position had to be left unfilled. Also, nobody could answer the Monty Python reference. I am disappointed.

Have a great week! I’ll be at the NAB conference in Las Vegas next week, so I’ll try to get some posts up here with pictures and write-ups on the coolest stuff there.
