Moments from the past week

Since most of my blog readers aren’t people I know in person, I rarely write posts about my everyday life (and most blog posts about “What I did today” are quite boring to read, so this may be too).

Seeing as how I don’t have a rant related to feminism, pets, racism, religion, or computer operating systems, I figured I’d just share a few funny moments from the past week:

  • My wife and I bought a large appliance from Best Buy. I wanted to get it from NewEgg instead, because I hate Best Buy. But my wife’s reason prevailed, seeing as how we live in an apartment building, and waiting all day for a delivery would be annoying, and if something was wrong with it, we’d have to mail it back at our own expense. I love it when the Best Buy employees, who supposedly don’t work on commission, try to push X, Y, and Z on you. We just had to keep saying “No” repeatedly. We stood our ground, though, and I’m glad we did.
  • I gave myself a papercut while filing stuff at work. It was dumb. I hate getting papercuts. And this one was under my fingernail, too. Ouch.
  • I started doing our taxes online and put in the wrong letter for something, so it appeared we owed the government some insane amount of money. I started to despair. Then my wife caught the error, and we both sighed in relief. Seeing as how I pride myself on meticulousness in data entry, I hung my head in shame for a good hour afterwards.
  • When I was walking home from work one day, I was singing quite loudly along to my Sandisk player, and just as I got to the bridge of Michael Jackson’s “You Wanna Be Startin’ Something,” a runner passed me, turned to look at me with a smile, and gave me a thumbs-up.

  1. Saw one of your old posts. Are you aware that you can get NextBus predictions by using text messaging – you don’t need the mobile web

  2. dude, I can’t tell you how grateful I am for your website. I recently took the plunge i.e. wiped my windows installed and now using ubuntu exclusively. your tutorials helped me out a great deal. :)

  3. Yeah personal post! I’m an avid reader, but I never have anything to say about ubuntu.

    Best buy bad. Bad bad bad. Have the package delivered to work instead.

    Yeah you singing! Had a dream a few days ago involving you, a guitar and miss american pie.

    Yeah, I think the runner got a laugh out of it, too.

    @Larry
    Yeah, I’m not big on text messaging, but I am now aware of it.

    @jame
    Glad you found the site helpful!

    @biff
    It was too big to carry home once delivered to work. So we went with Best Buy. Haven’t sung American Pie lately. I’ve been on a Michael Jackson kick lately.
