except for that bacon one.
i miss bacon all the time, and any vegetarian who tells you otherwise is lying. lying, i say! especially when it comes to peameal bacon.
do you have a yes, but no?
You may have read about the Up inspired National Geographic house experiment that was launched this past weekend. Using over 300 weather balloons it flew 10,000 feet high, for about an hour. I love the pictures from this experiment (more if you click on the link).
Now I need to watch Up again.
Something from a film (that doesn’t exist currently) you’d like to bring to life?
This completely made my day.
I saw this on Dlisted this morning and it made me chuckle.
1994 doesn’t seem that long ago, but when you hear them talk of the @ symbol it makes you realize how quickly time flies.
Also, a funny take on the current state of the web.
And a not so funny topic; the CRTC and metered internet. Not good. Not good at all. It costs about 1cent for the service providers to route a GB of data, and they are looking to charge between $1-4 per GB ontop of regular fees.
Go sign the online petition on Open Media if you don’t want to pay byte by byte for your Interweb use. The motion has already been passed, so the final decision is likely to happen really soon. As the rest of the world advances in technology, we get a push back by a regulatory body in place to control Can Con? Wait, I’ve seen this before…
It’s comforting to know that while waiting for The Big Bang Theory to return, I can still enjoy geekery via YouTube.
I should write a rap about my day job. On second thought…
There is something really calming about taking a night flight.
It’s a much more relaxing vibe. I try to travel at night as much as I can, as it’s the best way to maximize your time under a tight schedule, but I also like traveling in my pj’s.
When I was flying from Smithers to Palm Springs last summer, trying to get to my family, I was seated in seat 7D on all 3 flights, and in 1 on the return. Guess what seat I’m in tonight? 7D.
I’ll share one story with you that I’ve written so far for the eulogy.
The “undomestic goddess” you said you were. Still, there was always homemade spaghetti sauce when we came to visit and fresh lemon squares, but when someone complained about your ironing…well you would arch that eyebrow and tell the story of Jack. Jack complained about your ironing skills, specifically that you would never get his collars clean or straight enough. Then one day after he came home from work, he uncovered that you had cut all the collars off his shirts.
Jack did his own ironing from then on.
This made me smile today.
What’s something that made you smile, or laugh this week?
I’ve been having a really shitty week. One of the reasons why things have been so quiet around here.
I’m still bummed I’m missing out on a taping of The Hour tonight, because I couldn’t leave work 45 mins early. Even though I’ve been working overtime. Such is life…I was sitting down to eat my lunch and popped onto Facebook and one of my friends status updates was this:
Why can’t I own a Canadian? Google’s top suggestion when typing “Why” into the search query (for .ca)
It’s true, because I actually went and tested it out. I don’t know why you would ever be curious to type why into Google, but hey, I found this hilarious and laughed for the first time all week, and went and tried myself, so. It reminded me of this link here; Top Five Google Easter Eggs. My favourite – Google won’t search for Chuck Norris because it knows you don’t find Chuck Norris, he finds you.
The story behind the Why can’t I own a Canadian and be found here, along with some other great Google delights.
Google UK turns up something different for the “Why” question; “Why is a raven like a writing desk.” Oh the things that amuse me while stuck at work, running on no sleep…
What’s the funniest/strangest thing Google has suggested to you?
