1. I'd left my iPod charging yesterday, and when I picked it up this morning, it actually worked - I got to the main menu screen and I could scroll around and everything. Naturally, I decided to fuck it all up by trying to hook it up to my PC, and it promptly crashed again. Goddammit.

I gotta say, though, I've been spending more and more time there lately. And now I've got the Scrabble thingy hooked up, and I'm ready to throw down.

3. We Netflix'd Bubba Ho-Tep last night. So, what was all the fuss about, exactly? This movie was begging to be a beloved cult classic from the first title screen, and I hate begging. Aside from Bruce Campbell's Elvis-kung fu moves, which are somewhat amusing, this was a waste of time.
