Paper towels: 0, pants: 1

While I'm on the subject of restrooms (I'll avoid the obvious pun about toilet humor — oops, too late), I saw a curious incident this morning. I watched with not a little amusement as someone attempted in vain to figure out the paper towel dispenser.

Funniest... thing... ever

I was in a public restroom today, and you'll never believe what I saw. I swear it's the funniest thing ever; I don't think I've ever laughed so hard. It was a good thing I was already in the restroom, because I almost peed my pants.

To pan no more

We went and saw a movie tonight, and we thoroughly enjoyed it. What the movie was is irrelevant. It made me realize that, after trying to write a glowing review of Pan's Labyrinth and pretty much coming up short, it's much more fun to pan the bad movies.

Half it your way

I minored in psychology, and so it always intrigues me when people try to drag out the "is the glass half-empty or half-full" assessment. We all know your answer is supposed to determine whether you're generally a pessimist or an optimist. But come on.

Thoughts on Linux

I was almost hesitant to post this, because I know how, er, Linux aficionados can be. For that matter, I know how Windows people can be. My goal here is not to incite a flame war, but to give, as a Windows developer, my honest impressions of Linux.

If you have the rosemary, I have the thyme

We were shopping at Wal-Mart the other night, and I came across a bottle of sage for ten cents. Ten cents. I can't pass up a deal like that.

The one I'm not going to Pan

You know how sometimes you see a movie that just makes you say "wow" and you find yourself thinking about it all day afterwards? I saw one of those today.

Taxes are taxing

While granted today is not April 15, I've still been procrastinating on doing the taxes for the last couple weeks. It's not like it takes terribly long, especially when using online software.

This gator has no bite

I never really watched Ally McBeal or The Practice, so I can't claim to be a particular David E. Kelley fan. That's not so say I have anything against him, I'm just generally not a follower of his. However, the one exception is Lake Placid. It's best left to the viewer to decide whether it's a comedy or horror movie, but personally I look at it as a comedy. The apt characterizations and crisp dialog can best be summed up in one word: sarcastic.

I'd buy that for a dollar!

What is one to do when one has promised the children a certain something, yet in the end one just doesn't feel well enough to follow through? Why, bribe them, of course.
