Sofia the Lion Tamer at Wellington Zoo, New Zealand - 4th January 2012

I suppose this is supposed to make me think, "Gee, what a brave little girl." But it doesn't. It makes me think, "How wronged is this lion in pretty much any scenario imaginable?"

Netflix Stats

I'm less than thrilled with NetFlix's recent change of pricing structure. More than that, I think it downright sucks. But regardless I have to respect their infrastructure capability from an IT Geek perspective. I even read their tech blog. Anyway, came across this today:

1974 flashback

This struck me as post-worthy for 3 reasons:

  1. 1974 is a special year
  2. I LOVED Kiss until I was 8 or 9 years old. Not so much after that. :)
  3. Gene is, indeed, a Jew. I love how the other guest picks it up in about 30 seconds.

My Blackberry Is Not Working! - The One Ronnie, Preview - BBC One

IT-guy humor but should apply to just about everyone.

Macabre of Knobs

Over the holiday break it was pointed out to me that our house had greatly varying styles of door knobs. Truthfully, in buying a foreclosure a year ago we had so much to do that it had never occurred to me to examine the knobs. As they were all replaced I was able to capture just what an insane mish-mash of knobs there are. Of 9 rooms including two closets, there were SEVEN different types of knobs. The photo really speaks for itself. It's pretty hilarious. What the hell was the prior owner thinking? Did they have a knob fetish?

Dear Lean Cuisine

Dear Lean Cuisine,

I eat your food rarely. That means that I usually eat real food that came from a farm. That being the case, however, your frozen food is pretty tasty relative to "frozen meals" that don't cost $17 and claim to be organic.

But I digress. I am writing to inform you that putting small pieces of cooked bell pepper (regardless of color!) do not enhance pasta, rice or anything else. If you want to insert vegetables into the frozen concoction then please insert vegetables, not colored bits of overcooked foulness.
