Why isn’t Kathy Griffin wearing her top? I’m so fucking confused.

I don’t do that, either.
From the "Sorry Ladies, I'm Taken" Files
I am going down the block to get sweet movie snacks from the local bodega. Of course, I’ve already taken off my pants and put on my pajamas bottoms. It’s okay, though, because I’m also wearing a hoodie and sneakers. Without socks, of course.
Okay, so I really want to coplay Planetary.
I call Elijah Snow, but I need Jakita Wagner and The Drummer. Who’s in? In other news: God damn, but I’m a geek.

Fear-mongering is one of my biggest pet peeves. missing-e: As many users have observed, Tumblr has recently given users a choice to uninstall Missing e or revoke support for your account.

leadingtone: You can make a difference. Why, with a little coordination and, say, 37,000 client migrations, it’s amazing how quickly one can get a corporation to completely overhaul its philosophy overnight: In a flurry of statements released over the last few days, Go Daddy said it no longer supported the House version of the legislation, known as SOPA, nor had it ever backed the Senate...
Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.– His Holiness The Dalai Lama (via gaiaslastlaugh) Truth. It’s harder for me than I’d like it to be, but I’m trying to recognize it and change that about myself. Sadly, this is also difficult.
I Love Charts: Conclusion →
ilovecharts: Yesterday we posted a chart to which some people took offense. One person took the time to write us directly with her anger about the chart. I took exception to her tone and disagreed with her assertions and regrettably fell into one of the more simple traps of poor communication, writing a … Read the whole thing. This post proves that it’s no weakness to admit when...

missdisgrace replied to your post: Hints for Living Life in the Modern Age I have used ‘with all due respect’ in professional settings, and with all due respect. Otherwise agreed. If you paint with a broad brush, you get done faster. Still, I should know better. I appreciate the gentle reminder to not be a generalist.
Hints for Living Life in the Modern Age
Phrases like “Not to be mean…” or “With all due respect…” typically precede a mean or disrespectful statement. Don’t be that person, and call out people who do it. Cynicism is not the same as meanness. It can look the same sometimes. Realism is not the same as meanness, either, nor is it the same as pessimism. Making a pessimistic or mean statement and...

On Recapping the Year
I don’t do it.
What Being a Geek Means →
bookoisseur: wonderali: A geek is someone, anyone, with an unabashed passion for whatever it is they’re passionate about. This is stupendous. Thanks @wonderali! Correct. “Geek” is not an epithet. It’s not a put-down. It’s not an insult.

… when I had this thought: rulers of countries, at one time in the world’s history, had to actually know MORE than just statecraft. In fact, WANTED to know more than just statecraft. Yes, the ones that fancied themselves playwrights and musicians and poets and painters and scholars and the like were often average at best, but the point is that they wanted to be more than...
Is It Lunch Time Yet?
My stomach thinks so, but my to-do list and the clock seem to be trying to disagree.
There are chocolate truffle filled figs in the break room. Better get there quickly before the last three are taken.
On Today's Outfit and My Lack of Self-Portrait...
As I was leaving for work today, in my black turtle-neck shirt and dark blue jeans, Lovely Girlfriend told me that I looked like Mike Myers’ character, Dieter, on the SNL sketch, Sprockets. Without the glasses, hair, and nipple-stroking. I would attempt to prove or refute this with a self-portrait, but I suck at such things. So, you’ll just have to use your imagination.

My First Name
Well, first of all, you don’t get to know it, unless you already do. However, once you read this post, you’ll likely have enough hints to figure it out on your own. To wit: My first name has only ever been among the top 400 most popular boys names once (in 1990, apparently), and has never been more popular than that (since 1880). Depending on where you look, my name means either...
The Geek Test v. 3.14 →
I scored a 36.71587%, marking me as a Major Geek. Clearly, playing Fantasy Football this year put me over the top. Although, I think my geekness level has actually decreased, since I no longer play WoW and any table-top RPGs.
