More Vegas

Customer in spare time at lab:

Customer: “I am sorry to ask so many questions.”
Me: “That is literally why they pay me to be here.”

Vegas Moment

Me: “I’d guess you have a Mancunian accent.”
British Stranger: “Bolton, but I’ll give it to you. Bonus for using ‘Mancunian’ correctly.”

Vegas Day Four

Extremely long day. I was on the clock from 7:30 AM to 9:30 PM. My black dress socks looked slick – I realized my blisters were bleeding.

Plane

Looks like being the very last one on the plane worked in my favor. Scammed a row to myself.

Rough Day

This day took a turn for the worse with “we don’t have the parts to fix this car right now and we can’t let you drive it away.”

Compact Flash

How did compact flash lose in the marketplace? A card you have to insert really carefully or you bend the pins and destroy the reader? Oh yeah!

Bing view

I just saw the Bing street view car driving through Conway SC. That was how I learned that Bing has a street view.

Eggs-cellent

Making 2 1/2 dozen deviled eggs for two parties this weekend. It is an eggy paradise in here!

April Fools

April Fools is to comedy as New Year’s Eve is to drinking; lots of amateurs, some vomiting.

Everybody is a Star

Stated by Punkin while she was affixing a sticker to my shirt:

Punkin: “Daddy, I’m going to put this star on you. Because you are a rock star!”

Look at that Beauty

Said by Punkin while she was assembling a row of water balloons to throw at me:

“Look at that one! There’s nothing wrong with that beauty!”

iTunes =/= Podcasting

Dear podosphere, I’m never going to consider “topping the iTunes charts” as synonymous with “#1 podcast in the world” no matter how often you try that game.

Jetpack Insanity

WordPress Jetpack is telling me my site is up and down every 10 minutes for the last 24 hours. Is this happening to anyone else?

Oops

I spent a long time yesterday trying to find my Griffin iMic for the Hangout. I totally could have used the PowerWave for what I wanted to do and knew where it was. Oops!

GFL 2015?

Is a Scott Sigler GFL book going up for pre-order this weekend? I don’t see a mention either way on his site.

Chrome Feature

Dear Chrome developer who put an icon on the tab playing sound: you are a beautiful bastard and I want to kiss you.
