The Lord’s Prayer is a classic …

but everyone needs some Dylan in their life.

Oh wow. You have to check out Wordle. I think I’m going to go turn more quotes into word cloud art now. I should probably post something interesting soon … but I’m still twittering away. Oh, and Euro Cup … Euro Cup owns my life right now.

I’m not sure what the inspiration was for this particular video, but I enjoy it to no end. I’m not sure what else to say, other than that I had no idea what rickrolling was until now.

In other news, I’ve discovered Twitter, and you can find me here.

I really need to formulate a good blog post one of these days. Makes me feel kind of useless, to have a blog and do so little with it. Although I wonder if anyone reads it at all. I just have to remind myself that I do this for me, not for other people.

P.S. Sorry for the rickroll.


Some days, you just can’t get rid of a bomb! June 2, 2008

I get a huge kick out of over-the-top clips such as this one. Apparently, bombs are very conveniently timed … and very large … yet not very heavy. Thank you, Ashley.

Classic quote:
“They may be drinkers, Robin, but they’re also human beings.”

Holy cow. I am turning into a morning person. I have had to leave the house by around 8 AM for the past four days, and today, after my silly phone alarm rang twice, I climbed down the ladder, turned it off, and stayed down. I suppose I am just a creature of habit, and as such, have gotten into the groove. I am excited by this prospect. Maybe I will lead a normal adult life after all!

For the most part, I believe they are tone deaf. They shouldn’t quit their day jobs …

I was browsing through public transportation information, and I came across San Francisco’s F-Market & Wharves, which I’ve ridden a few times. One of the most memorable was when I was young. I remember riding this particular model of streetcar with my dad. When we were riding, a man on the streetcar threw his briefcase out of the streetcar. He then proceeded to jump out. I suppose he was late. It was the most peculiar sight, as you can’t jump out of most streetcars to begin with! Such is the beauty of a vintage streetcar. At least I think it was this one … I suppose that’s what I remember, and that the streetcar had to have been shaped like a boat. And seeing as a boat-shaped streetcar really would not fit on the streets of San Francisco … well, you get the idea.

Possibly one of the funniest things I’ve seen all night. Go look. I promise it’s worth it. More when I’m not freaking out due to stress. Give me a week or so.

I don’t know why I love this video so much.

Anyway, this week looks to be stressful. I hope to jam through the rest of the projects I have to do. In a week, there are also final exams, so it’s almost over! Holy crap!

And then … D.C. and Boston! My new carrot at the end of the stick, besides yarn that I made my roommate hide. That’s a whole ‘nother subject. Really wondering whether I should just combine this blog and my knitting blog. Separating my life is horribly difficult, I think. That, and am I really that interesting? Then again, perhaps this one is just lots of inspiration and cool tidbits. Chi sa? (Who knows?)
