  • Cool days like this make Miles Davis playing Autumn Leaves slip into my mind. #
  • Loki raining down sulferic hellfire has nothing on having my son try on pants. #
  • For some reason, I'm still thinking I want a PS3. #
  • Finally got to work on an old MacBook Air today for a bit. Already hooked. #

  • Target audience, no? http://t.co/YZ3WVWV #
  • Woo! Applescript! #
  • I need to geek out a bit this weekend. What should I work on? #
  • It's a good night for cheap beer. #
  • I nearly started a grease fire in my grill. Is that bad? #
  • There can be only bun! #highlander #lasthotdog #
  • "Pish posh! Tut tut!" The reply: "Kingcocksmall!" #
  • @doctorstine Not a bad idea =) in reply to doctorstine #
  • @doctorstine Yeah but I'm two beers down, mate! (I've been grilling.) http://t.co/Y0u0pmJ in reply to doctorstine #
  • Win a pair of #StarWars @Moleskine Notebooks from @OfficeSupplyGee #giveaway http://t.co/lAF0W6M #
  • I wonder when the burn on my arm will finally go away. It's my departing gift from the pizza job. #
  • I just tried to open a website about Microsoft and my whole system crashed. Wow. #
  • @AznWifey In their faces: I do neither. in reply to AznWifey #
  • "There is no joy in Mudville…" #passiveaggressivetweets #
  • Little one managed to put her watch on by herself: "Oh, lookit, it's almost time! Austin, it's time!" #
  • One mug of tea down. I think it's going to be a long weekend. #
  • Know what I hate? Sillybands. Why do I hate them? Because my arms are hairy. #truestory #
  • Best. Picture. Ever. http://t.co/XVcMe2Z7 #
  • Um, uh oh? QT @asymmetricinfo: Disturbing question: in 1932, how foreseeable was 1939? in reply to asymmetricinfo #
  • Just counted in binary. There was pain. #
  • Wonder if it would annoy my coworkers if I started practicing my beatboxing. #
  • Why does my spine shiver every time I SSH in or out of another machine? #
  • There is a part of me that could really go for a glass of wine tonight. And actually, there are no other parts of me. #
  • Nobody needs Arby's. #
  • My wife loves me for some unbeknownst, unbelievable reason. #
  • I've been keeping a stubble-length beard for a little over a week now (not fully intentionally). Definitely ready for a clean shave again. #
  • Got the cards, made the deck, and even have 2d10 ready as a life counter… anticipation is building. #
  • Testing calendars by creating fake Dungeons & Dragons events. I dub these crit-tease. #
  • Mac Fact: TextEdit uses a mechanical pencil. #
  • Um, retro is totally in. QT @feliciaday: It's SO 2005 to have your thong sticking out about your jeans, right? in reply to feliciaday #
  • "Oh! The bridge is falling down, my favorite ladies." #
  • Sorry, I misheard: "Oh! The britches falling down; my favorite ladies!" Now it makes way more sense. #
  • Lower floor of my house is cleaned. A glass of wine is now well earned. #
  • Wow. Morning tea has never tasted better. #
  • The more I work in Outlook for Mac, the more willing I am to slam my head to my desk. #
  • I am far more interested in the Kindle Touch than the Fire. Does the KT have simple web browsing or, better, RSS reading capabilities? #
  • I have a file called "oldemail". Now, is it about Old Email or perhaps Ye Olde Mail? #
  • The answer: Old Email. The other would be referred to as Ye Olde Emailes. #english #history #

  • "He's having dinner with someone, not going to an eat-over." #

  • @doctorstine Everyday was yesterday, man. in reply to doctorstine #

  • I think I need to sit in a quiet, darkened room and watch Community. #
  • I think I'm going to play with upgrading my laptop to Lion this weekend. #
  • "It's a Frankenstein zombie that's a ghost and a squid." #
  • That previous tweet was the greatest thing ever uttered by one of my offspring. I couldn't be more proud. #
  • "Who calls it hooch!?" #
  • It's pronounced Nin-JAW-go?? That seems so wrong. #
  • I'm thinking I want a spaniel over a lab, just because of the size. #

  • "So, what do you want to talk about? Hot dogs?" #
  • http://t.co/PwjBhXit #
  • No desk is complete without a pencil jar. #
  • I am filled with hoagy. #

  • I've managed to find the most disgusting tea ever. #
  • @jzeller Them's fightin' words, good sir! in reply to jzeller #
  • @alyankovic No I think you got what you wanted. Chewie cookies are way better. Crunchy kinds aren't as good. in reply to alyankovic #
  • My existential struggle: Adding the phrase "bada bing, bada boom" to an instructional document. #
  • It feels like a Chipotle kind of day. #
  • I have no idea what the hell it was I just saw. My wife tells me it was an Old Navy commercial. #

  • I think I'm going to take my fountain pen to work. #
  • This is a really hard one. I should probably eat something legitimate if I'm going to get through the night. #
  • Predicting my daughter's future: being the frightened chick in cheesy horror movies. How do I know? She practices it. #
  • I miss my dog. And looking at puppies today didn't help. #
  • I'm inheriting a cat again. Here's hoping it goes better this time 'round. #
  • Is there anything better than a hot mug of tea on a cold day? I submit that there is not! #
  • I keep working on iPhones and now I don't think there will be an end to my will to leave T-mobile. Other carriers: make me an offer! #
  • I do feel kinda screwed, especially when I waited for the best device possible… http://t.co/m4wqKpdr #
  • "Rock and Roll!" followed by beating my senseless with a giant balloon. #
  • I wish I did graphics work, just so I could use Pixelmator more. #

  • The best candy pack for Halloween ever: http://t.co/C7FIrrCV #

  • I think the cure for what ails me tonight will have to be wine and violence. #
  • Ah, showing my true faith: http://t.co/RKJg4kGK #

  • Another reason I hate the holidays: "Countdown to the 25 Days of Christmas." TV stations are counting down to the countdown for a MONTH! #
  • As Christmas invades October, that means we'll be spending 1/4 of the entire year in the Holidays. Christmas will be longer than Autumn! #

  • @JollyAndy Recommendation for a young comics reader (8 y.o.)? He's bright, so maybe something of an omnibus? Xmen, Batman, Spiderman realms? #
  • @JollyAndy Sounds like they're not too adult or gory-violent (smashing buildings = good fun). And the boy's on a big Percy Jackson kick. in reply to JollyAndy #
