Damn it! Followed an @CocaCola truck to work and have been craving one since.

Of all the cravings I fight, the desire to guzzle an ice cold Coca-Cola could be the hardest. Curse you and your trucks and your use of high-fructose corn syrup!

A magic elixir for a snowy night

Hot chocolate made with real chocolate. Thanks, babe!

Apocalypse Snow 3: This Time, It's Persnowlal

The most horrible thing I have seen all week, specifically the 2nd and last photos.

Keep in mind, I was staring at my own bloodied face on Sunday and the scabby stuff since then. Click through at your own risk. Via Cracked.


Really hate grapefruit. Tastes bad and rips off name of another fruit.

Seriously, there was already a fruit called “grape” and it looks totally different. It’s like naming a new leafy green “carrotvegetable.”

Ugh. Had no idea I've been a semicolon junkie for so long.

Skimming through my old book and found a semicolon. Assumed I didn't really use it until after teaching at Sylvan, but clearly it's been longer.

Just glad I spotted the problem before I drilled.

Artists cannot spell #FAIL

I don't know what's worse: misspelling their own name or the boringness of their ad for art instruction.

Ack, I just got BlackBerried

Must be one of those things you don’t truly understand until it happens to you, but I now see why my wife’s office uses the term “BlackBerried”.

@Amazon define "Ready to Ship"

I don't know what's the bigger waste: the extra box and packing or the label that reads "Ready to Ship".

Dear Adobe: Why does Acrobat change β to ß in PDF to text conversion?

I can accept that Acrobat sucks at converting to Word or HTML, but why the hell does it change characters in a simple text conversion? Did it with three Greek characters, which I fixed by copying the character out of the PDF to replace the one in the text. Why couldn't Acrobat do that in the first place?
