On Ketchup Chips
bestrooftalkever: Nick: I mean, they seem cool but also kinda gross. George: That’s why the Internet will love them. Are ketchup chips new to ‘Merica?

And yes, the English is right beside it. Obviously. I just like to sometimes see how my French comprehension is, since I haven’t taken French in school since Grade 9, the last year it was compulsory.

Tsk tsk! the Linguistics Major Monster© arises … Me: There is nothing wrong with referring to you guys as ‘you guys’; English unfortunately doesn’t have a 2nd-person… This is one of those few arenas in which the American South is FULL OF WIN....
Christmas mixtapes, you guys. RIGHT?
Oh man oh man. Any recommendations? I found one here that’s funking out in all the right ways. Maybe it’s still too early for you. I tried to resist, but it’s my favourite time of year and my favourite memory-inducing music, so I had to give in. What do you listen to for Christmas?
At least once a day, I walk around my apartment...
No, don’t run! There’s more! I’m on the third floor of this building, and my windows are high enough—or, more accurately, low enough—that standing in front of them in my nude state would offend passers-by, to say the least. That’s where the blinds come in. Especially since my bedroom window faces the high school across the street. So, yeah, blinds generally stay closed...
I’m Mitt Romney, and, uh, yes, Wolf, that’s also my first name.– Mitt Romney, flubbing his own first name, which is actually Willard. The line came after CNN host Wolf Blitzer, moderator for last night’s GOP debate, asked the candidates to introduce themselves and urged them to keep it short with the following example: “I’m Wolf Blitzer, and yes, that’s my real...

The bartender says “Sorry, we don’t serve faster than light neutrinos”. A faster than light neutrino walks into a bar. Obviously this is the funniest joke I have heard in days, maybe weeks.

Today is R-Day: Operation JH
Resumes! A bunch of them. Resumé? Is that better? I don’t know. The plan is to blitz the mall uptown and the surrounding places business. Seasonal work is better than none at all. My playlist on the way will consist of Jamie Cullum, whatever Christmas music already downloaded that I can cobble together, and perhaps a taste of the SHUFFLE, ya heard? Okay, positive vibes. Good feelings....
