Last time I made an order there, 50 or so USB drives turned into a couple thousand carats of cubic zirconium, and I had a hell of a time getting my money back.

(seriously, what the fuck am I gonna do with a couple thousand tiny cubic zirconium gems)


sprinkle them on everything you eat so that they make your dookie sparkle?

BUT WHERE ELSE WILL I EVER GET MY PORMOTIONAL USB FLASH DRIVES???


(this was the first result in the store)

I want 200 drives engraved with the words "HRETCAL RATNS" and I just don't think anyone else can provide the level of service that I'm looking for, here

I'm pretty sure that would lead to some serious internal injury.

Part of me wants to make a Michael Jackson glove.

I just got a really, really nice email about the results of some counseling work I did, and obviously I can't share any specific details, but it's really gratifying to see someone progress... and this work hit a lot of buttons for me (emotional abuse by a guy who used his intellect to control his partner), so I'm just glad to hear it turned out well.

Also I'm leaving right now for two nights at a ski resort. Second week of the quarter and I'm already slacking. It was only $50, it would have been dumb not to go...

Going to London next month. Already looking forward to it. In fact I have been for the past 3 months or so. It'll just be a weekend, but still.
So yeah one month and 4 days left and I am excited already. I am going to see a friend, we've been talking pretty much every day for months (since August I think) now and it will be awesome to finally meet up for real, as it turns out England really isn't that far away or expensive to go to. Also I suppose it will be nice to see London proper, only been there briefly once before and that was 11 years ago. Anyone know anything that I should make sure to see while there?

My family sneakily called me at work where I use my supernice melodious tone to make clients feel good. They were so shocked because apparently I sound completely different (I'm so used to it Razz). It was hilarious.

All of the Twitter-based trailers for the Muppets Most Wanted movie are awesome... I don't even watch TV, or movies, or the Muppets, and I love them.

My car had a full tank of gas in it today.
Someone else paid for it.
It still has more than half a tank even after driving them around all day.

Last night wing2 came out as a boy to most of my family. They all were pretty cool with it and didn't clutch their pearls or shun him or act disgusted or anything. They were all "yeah, I figured" or had good questions for him, and nearly everyone hugged him. The thing we both had been dreading and fearing for more than a year and a half was a total non-event. A huge weight is off my shoulders and I think it's off his, too.

- Hello, I'm looking for Mr. X of Company Y.

- Oh, you mean Ms. X? No problem, I will call her for you.

- No I'm looking for the director.

- Ms. X is the director of Y.

The look on the old guy's face was actually quite funny.
