    My favorite Dodger blog changed its name... the old one was so much better.

    Why don't you give us both names and let us be the judge?

    A random, very attractive young woman said, "Hey" while staring right at me. Before I gained enough composure to reply-- wipe my nose, adjust my bowtie and fedora-- I realized she was talking on a bluetooth headset hidden under her hair. I hate those things!

    I am being forced to undergo a necessary medical procedure that will potentially extend my life, help me lose necessary weight and prevent further painful and life-threatening episodes from occurring, all of which will be paid for by my government. Thanks Canada! :rolleyes:

    Rain sucks. Snow is better.

    You only say that because snow gets you days off from work.

    Having recently gone through both winter (re freezing) rain and snow recently, I will take snow. A week without power in -10 degree whether is as fun as it sounds. Especially because I couldn't charge my phone (had to make this a first world problem somehow).

    Why do some video games make you PLAY out the flashbacks? It doesn't annoy me, it just strikes me as a strange creative choice. Being that it's a flashback, we already know that it happened. My failure to meet the game's goal would alter history. :p

    My firm is moving to a new "state of the art" building in March.

    My team goes there for a team meeting yesterday.

    I'm standing in the revolving front door like a mope for several seconds, shrugging at the security guard inside, until I realise that he is saying that I have to push the thing myself to be let in!

    Me: Is that going to still be the case even when we move in?

    Guard: Yep, you have to push it yourself.

    Me: What kind of **** is that?! It's the ******* Twenty-First Century! I mean, I accept we don't have hover cars yet, but who designs a revolving door that you have to push round yourself!

    The previous name was 'Mike Scioscia's Tragic Illness', a nice play/reference to a classic Simpsons episode:


    .


    The new name? 'Dodgers Digest'. Very bland, very generic.




    Both are terrible.

    I invariably tie the laces on my right shoe tighter than on my left shoe. I always have to adjust a few times.

    It's impossible to tell if people are lying or not in L.A. Noire. Why can't I just shoot them?

    I can't stand the same familiar brats who ride our shuttle bus and sit on the aisle seat with their backpack in the window seat next to them, knowing that people will have to stand every day. Don't understand where that sense of entitlement comes from- why do you deserve two seats, while 10-12 people must stand, which they'd rather do than avoid an awkward conversation with you that would involve removing your giant, absurd looking BEATS BY DRE BRAH earmuffs to ask you to act maturely and make room.

    Some cops just pulled over and tried to arrest me because I guess I met the profile of some other person. I was having none of it.

    Will the damn weather please warm up again!?:mad:

    And Virginia's Attorney General (the new one, not crazy pants Cuccinelli), just announced that he believes VA's same sex marriage ban is unconstitutional and won't defend the amendment in court and yet the media is focused on Justin freakin' Beiber getting arrested!:mad:

    I can't hijack other people's cars in L.A. Noire. There's no gameplay option where I can flash my badge, yell "police business!", and then proceed to run over commies and racists for the rest of the time.

    I could've sworn you could do that. It's been a while since I played L.A. Noire, though. Somewhat underrated, really; they made some bad decisions regarding the gameplay and connecting plot, but it was dripping with style.

    Anyway: it's snowing and consequently I can't carry my laundry over to my complex's laundromat. I'll have to do it on Saturday instead. :(
