Steam is having a huge sale this weekend.

That’s it really. In case someone wants some games on the cheap.

Online board games you say…

Might be interesting.

VASSAL

Specifically a certain card game that makes some of us into assholes.

Of course, we could just get together IRL and do these things, but our collective schedules kinda suck.

Every Acadamy Award winning movie ever.

Or at least the plot, condensed down into one heartwarming, inspiring, touching trailer that will make you think and be grateful for being alive and feel lucky to have friends.  In America.  Where there are no rules.  Or boundaries.  And where even the little guy can make it big.  And magic can…oh screw it, just watch the dang YouTube video.

So that’s what we sound like

Italian guy writes a song in gibberish to sound like English.  Either this was done in the 70s or those guys are way behind us in fashion.

What English Sounds Like to Foreigners is Today’s BIG Thing in Music – NOV 03, 2009.

BTW, this is my first attempt at using the Press This thing on my browser.  God have mercy on our souls.

For dorks who like farm animals

I mean, for dorks who are interested in plowing some fields….

I mean, for dorks who are interested in sowing some seeds…

Ah, screw it.

 

There is also a kind of open house, “Visit a Farm” kind of thing going on this Saturday.  I know for a fact that the place in Enumclaw that makes some kick-ass mead and whatnot is going to be doing tours.

If anyone is interested in that, I can get the details from Dancing Girl.

Sorry, no linky….   =(

For dorks and friends who are dorky enough to be friends of dorks

I give you…

Museum day!

Essentially, you print a lil card and get to go to the museum for free this Saturday.

You cannot, however, be guaranteed a hilarious, Ben Stiller filled, family romp.

Today marks the day…

When lil’ Crankenstein was the born.

Those mad scientists must be sooooo proud.

Those christian scientists must be soooooo crazy.

I don’t think one has anything to do with the other though.

 

I wish I had some pictures to post, but I am at work and somewhat restricted.

California + Macintosh = Funny

My brothers friend’s blog in which he rants about having to go to the Apple Store.

I figured some of you might get a chuckle out of it.
