A definition

Brownberrying: Using your Blackberry in the bathroom.

It’s wrong people! Don’t do it.

Edit: I also think that if your outgoing voicemail message is 4 minutes long, there’s something wrong with you. Nothing personnal.


I got a case of the Mondays

Anybody wants some “the Mondays”? I gotta case full of them. ūüėČ

Weekend recap: Went to Montr√©al Friday night, came back home on Saturday around noon, slept most of the afternoon, went to see Death Race, stayed awake most of the night, slept most of Sunday, read, watched PVR’d shows late in the night, got up late this morning, took a shower, shaved, brushed teeth, cut nails. Took bus to work, grabbed house coffee at Starbucks, had salad for lunch, wrote this entry.

Just realized I’m not dressed.

Kidding. Sorta.

The Venn Charts, Opus 2

By now, most of you are probably familiar with my love for Venn charts. All right, it was only one graphic, and I used it twice but¬†still. Here’s this Saturday’s¬†Venn Chart.

My standard greeting expressed in a Venn chart:


A: What’s new?
B: What’s exciting?
*: What’s new and exciting?

Because clearly¬†I can’t be bothered with what’s only new, or only exciting. ūüėČ

Neverwas Fair

All right, now that I’m confirmed for the Neverwas Fair, I need to get my butt in gear and think of a costume. What do you think I should go with?

#0 – The canevas


Not really a costume (seriously!), but this gives you a reference as far as what I have to work with.

#1 – The Samuel Jackson


To pull this off:

– Paint face brown.
– Spend all night yelling.

#2 – The Mr. Fab


To pull this off:

– Get shirt with flowery pattern.
– Spend all night signing karaoke.

#3 – The Homer Simpson


To pull this off:

– Paint face yellow.
– Spend all night eating doughnuts and drinking beer.

#4 – The George Foreman


To pull this off:

– Paint face brown.
– Spend all night selling grills / naming kids George.

#5 – The Uncle Fester


To pull this off:

– Get a lightbulb.

#6 – The The Enigma (from the Jim Rose Sideshow Freaks)


To pull this off:

– Paint puzzle pieces on face.
– Spend all night sticking a nail in my nose.

#7 РThe Blue Men Group Dude (Bob?)


To pull this off:

– Paint face blue.
– Stare a lot.
– Spend all night pouring lime Gatorade on head.

#8 – The Britney Spears


To pull this off:

– Get hoodie.
– Shave goatee (or not).
– Spend all night lypsynching other people’s conversations.

#9 – The Mr. Clean


To pull this off:

– Paint eyebrows white.
– Get white t-shirt + earring.
– Get muscles (might be too late for that).

#10 – The other choice

Suggest your own idea! Keep in mind that I’m flying in for a conference a few days before, so no costume should require that I transport firearms, knives, a bicycle, a chainsaw, a chicken,¬†or bulky / illegal /¬†strange items.

See you there!
