Al Updates and other sundry thoughts

Previous Entry Share Next Entry
The Al Bits
I'm still alive. There's no reason to assume otherwise.
I'm still employed at The Big G. Work (and related activities) keeps me busy ~13 hours a day.
I try to hang out with people when I can.
I try to go biking when possible.
I did my taxes and gots me some moneys back. Yay.
I've been watching a lot of Doctor Who lately.
I'm taking a very long time to finish reading 100 Years of Solitude.
Wedding plans are coming together
I just saw a MSP improv show starring miss bunnyslope  tonight.

The Sundry
Flogging Molly has a new album. I haven't listened to it enough to form an opinion about it yet.
The 1960's black and white TV series The Wild Wild West is a bit too formulaic for me, though it does make me laugh often enough that I haven't tired of it completely.
Rickrolling is my new favorite pastime at work.
PicLens is quite possibly the coolest Firefox extension I've seen to date.
My friend dr_beep  is hilarious. He bought an entire print shop on a whim. Film at 11.
This (now probably defunct) blog is a man after my own heart -- he reviews crappy beverages in a hilarious manner.
Android is gonna be f'n awesome. I hope they come up with some decent hardware to place nice with it.
  • Doctor Who! I've got the last couple season's on my drive, borrowed from my brother. That show is so ridiculous and yet I know I will watch it all. My brother and I recently enjoyed the incredible awful camp that is the "key to time" series of episodes, back from the tom baker era.

    And I have supposedly been reading 100 years of solitude, in spanish and english, since sometime mid 1998!
    • Yeah, I've been kinda working my way backwards/forwards/sideways through Doctor Who -- I started with Christopher Eccleston stuff, now I'm on to the David Tennant stuff, but I also jumped back n' downloaded the very first ones ("Unearthly Child" etc) and then I Netflix'd some Tom Baker stuff... so yeah, I'm kinda getting it in a lump sum.

      I love that Daleks have not changed at all in 40+ years of the show.
  • Piclens makes me feel like I LIVE IN THE FUTUR. Or own a mac.

    I hate the name though, ugh. I wasn't a fan of the "cooliris" moniker either.

    Cooliris and piclens were both extensions that I thought were cute little flashy gizmos with just enough wow factor to make 'em worth a try, and then they both totally changed my internetting habits. Google imagesearch is so muchmore functional when you pare it down to that format.

    Interestingly enough, what I think piclens needs the most is an integration of cooliris -- some way to open the page any particular picture is on without interrupting the gallery-scrolly-view thing.
  • "Just drove past some hookers..."

    I like it already!
  • that site is genius.
