All drinks should glow.

I never want to drink another non-glowing beverage again. We bought these glasses about a year ago, and finally used them today. I filled them with blue jello first, and now I'm drinking green tea out of the big one.

After some extensive interweb hunting for a similarly awesome product, it looks like glowing grog is a distinct possibility for the upcoming Triple-P ('Pirates of the Caribbean' Premier Party).

I like Newegg

If you ever need anything computer-related, go to Newegg.  They are freaking awesome.  We've ordered from them several times in the past, including all our new compy parts, got several really good deals, and everything worked perfectly.  Then we ordered Netty's laptop from there and were equally pleased.  And then, when the firewire card we ordered with the laptop didn't work, they gave me a full refund, no questions asked.  I didn't even have to send back the defective card--they said to just throw it away.  And this wasn't like an "I'll have to check with my supervisor" kind of thing.  This was a "Yeah, it was only an $18 card anyway, and keeping a loyal customer happy is totally worth $18" kind of thing.  Good company.

Who rock da 'chos?

We rock da 'chos! Chicken nachos are good, and I am totally gonna make some right now.

Who's coming with me?

Besides being a movie I'm looking forward to, this is a cool way of distributing the trailer.

It's official!

After 5 hours of moving and around 10 hours of cleaning the old apartment, we're finally moved. Thanks to Shannon, Nicole, Ryan, and Newgen for all the help. We checked out this morning, and it looks like our labors paid off--we won't have to pay anything for cleaning or repairs.

A two-bedroom apartment that isn't located in a construction zone is quite an improvement, let me tell you. I guess we're moving up in the world, if only a little bit.

Also, I decided that it was time to reblogulate, which is quite a task considering that both my design skills and my HTML skills are both near zero. It's not exactly finished at this point. The white outline around the header is a lingering problem, for example, and I've had the same problem when I put a graphic in the sidebar. If anyone out there in Interweb Land has an idea of what I'm doing wrong, let me know.
So far, the little I've done to the 'ol Double B has been described as "scary"--I'm not sure if that's what I was going for, but I’ll take it.

I like the internet.

 Anytime you say, "The internet should have that," it does.  Example: the current version of Yahoo! Messenger am t3h suxxorz, so I wanted an old version.  Ten seconds later I find OldVersion.com.  Their slogan? "Because newer is not always better".  It's like they read my mind.

I have no idea what this is...

...but it's funny and it was in our closet.  Oh, the things you find when you're moving out.

Think about this.

 I was just in the study (i.e. the bathroom) and it occurred to me that "Wal-Mart" is an anagram for "Wart-Mal," meaning "bad wart."  Could it be that Wal-Mart is the blemish on society that some believe it to be?  I can't say for sure, and I don't have time to think about it right now--I have to go to Wal-Mart and get some boxes.

Also, X-Men 3 (technically, X-Men: The Last Stand) is a decent movie.  Not great, but decent, and it ended the trilogy as well as could be expected, considering they changed directors between 2 and 3 (Lincoln may have had questionable taste in facial hair and hattery, but his advice against midstream horse-changing was rock solid).  Die-hard fans may be less than thrilled with the ending.  I wasn't terribly bothered by it, though.  Overall, I'd say it's about an 7.9/10.

When you keep enough junk sitting around your apartment, enemies eventually run into each other:
