I am Jack's coffee machine

The quality of office coffee cannot be overstated enough; bad coffee = pissed off people. My company uses a Keurig machine, which is a fantastic coffee-making device that gives you awesome, fresh-brewed coffee in 30 seconds. When the office moved to its new location, we also switched coffee brands, which sucked because I really liked the old brand we were using. That being said, I just went into the kitchen for a second cup and they had a new flavor - Mudslide. I just had to try it. It's pretty good; I don't want to make a regular thing out of it, though...

So, a recap of the weekend: Friday night, the woman and I went to see Ricky Jay. I really need to get my glasses fixed. Most of his routine is card tricks, and so because we were in the 13th row, I couldn't really make out the cards at all. Regardless, his encore was, without a doubt, the coolest fucking card trick I've ever seen.

Saturday morning: slept in, ordered breakfast, watched my DVD of "The Man Who Wasn't There" and some of the extra stuff - y'know, the extras on this DVD might be the worst I've ever seen. Very sloppy (and sometimes non-existant) editing, and the interview with Roger Deakins (cinematographer) is unbelievably boring. We didn't watch the commentary, though - I do want to give that a shot.

Saturday afternoon - Sunday night: non-stop pot smoking and Dungeon Siege playing, interrupted by Yankee games and bathroom breaks. Fantastic.

Oh, here's something awesome - last year, I got a pretty nice income tax refund from the government but ended up owing New York State something like $900; well, this year, I'm getting a pretty nice income tax refund from the government AND, as it turns out, I'm ALSO getting a huge refund from New York State.

Finally - I'm using the Sema client for this update, and I think I'm hooked.

  • Farewell, LJ

    So I guess I'm retiring this blog. Part of me feels like I need to make some sort of eulogy or something; part of me just wants to move on already.…

    The first sentence of this post was "Finally, some breathing room," and then as I was in the middle of the second sentence I got handed…

    Kinda hard to imagine Thomas Pynchon (and not, say, Tom Robbins) writing this paragraph, but there it is on p. 99 of "Inherent Vice":…
