Flying From O'Hare To Pearson

We all board and the captain comes on the intercom: “Ladies and gentlemen, we just have a minor maintenance issue before we take off. We seem to be missing a couple of bolts on one of the wheels so we’re gonna try and take care of that.”

Photoshop, Trucks and Gun Control

I hate it when this happens.

Photoshop freezes and the program won't quit. I tried the old force quit, the awkward option+apple+esc combo. That didn’t work. I thought force quit was in case the program was frozen? Well, guess what? It's frozen. Maybe I should have used "super extra double actually serious this time" quit.

I don't know the key combination for that, though.

Marathons, Peanut Butter and Masturbating Santa

Whoa whoa whoa.

Where does 24 get off having a two-night season premiere? Are we to believe this one episode is as epic as Titanic? I thought a premiere was just the first episode?

Seriously, Why Am I Up?

I was recently sent a message by a reader. For security's sake, I'll call her Marina (Can you see me winking at you, Marina? Because no one knows that's actually your real name).

Marina was kind enough to let me know that she agreed with my random thought the other day, vis-a-vis iTunes updating more than the fucking weather channel.

Cartoon Crush - Volume I

I have a crazy confession. And not the fact that sometimes in private, I stand in front of the mirror and pretend I’m kicking ass onstage at a karaoke bar. I think that’s widely accepted as fact.

Dear NBC: I Hate You.

I get this little gem flash on the screen from time to time when I'm online:

Really? That’s awesome. Because that’s exactly what you’re supposed to be doing. No need to tell me every little mundane action you perform. Just keep ads from popping up and keep your mouth shut about it. Thanks, Firefox.
