Another IM conversation with Yort goes horribly wrong.

Yort: It's not looking like i'll be getting an x-box 360 this week.
Me: I didn't know you planned on getting one.
Yort: you never listen anymore.
Me: I thought it was just console lust.
Yort: i'm going to mother's.
Me: take that damn dog with you.
Yort: it's your damn dog.
Me: Hey, I didn't ASK for a dog for Christmas.
Yort: you hinted around hard enough.
Me: Yeah, learn the difference between a German Shepherd and a Pekingese, you stupid bitch.

I don't know why it happens. It just does.

Some other miscellaneous crap while I think of something to post:

1. How ridiculous are those hubcaps that keep spinning after the car stops? I saw a set of those again on the way home. Every time I see them, I want to stop their glittery rotation using the driver's face. Damn, those things annoy me.

2. Speaking of bad ideas, I wished I had my camera with me yesterday. I stopped at the store on the way home, and when I came out there was a giant, 4x4 purple hearse parked next to me. My car was dwarfed by this thing. I have no idea why someone would put actual time and money into doing this. It boggles my mind. It looked exactly like this except it was bright purple.

3. I sent an e-mail to my brother the genius scientist. He got a new job and is moving to Boston, but I thought his last day was the 5th. Apparently not, because I got this auto-reply:

Hi All,

I am no longer with Bristol-Myers Squibb. I enjoyed my time here greatly, and hope you will all keep in contact. I have gone to Boston to pursue RNA interference therapies with Alnylam.


I'm not exactly sure what that means, but I think it may have something to do with a warrior-prince and some sort of epic quest.


  1. Spinners are beyond my understanding though, I must say, they are pretty cool on motorcycles... Hard Core Asinine 4x4 action is indeed bizarre in the extreme. My suburban is a 4x4 but aside from the test drive, I've never used it. Grats to Houdini!


  2. That RNA interference thing sounds like a pretty powerful artifact. I bet the guardian dragon is frightening.

  3. Yeah, exactly. If you gain the power to mess with someone's RNA, you can drop them like *that*.

  4. Such a shame...the guy who owns the hearse pictured probably thought he was setting his ride apart by jacking it up, installing ginormous tires and donning "naked busty lady silhouette" mud-flaps.

    Now he has purple competition...

    Maybe Prince is in town? Although, a ginormous SUV if it was driven by Prince, kind of flies in the face of all those penis-envy-overcompensation theories.

  6. Sounds like me and Dave.

    You two sound like you've been married for a while.
