Come, I will conceal nothing from you…

…the family is in the midst of vacation time prep. Which means that I am rapidly approaching vacation mode. Actually, I’m kind of there already. So posting is going to be spotty, at best.

Enjoy your Easter weekend, of course. But, really, it’s getting pretty nice out. Maybe some fresh air?

Is this the ultimate in decadence, globalization, awesome, or all three?

Jamaica Blue Mountain K-Cups.

According to the box, this is not a blend; according to the website, they’re certified. Now I just have to figure out how to drink it properly. Two notes: I don’t take my coffee black and I don’t take my coffee without sweeteners. I am willing to try swanky versions of both, but let’s establish right now that I’m not a true coffee aesthete so that we can all move on, OK?

PS: With 2% milk and several sugars it tastes pretty damn good already. But I’m willing to refine the delivery method up a bit.

Boston Marathon hoax bomber: performance artist*.

As a matter of official policy I do not use this site or any other to advocate that people be taken out back and beaten with sticks until they are begging for the sweet, sweet release of unconsciousness.

The man arrested yesterday for planting two fake bombs near the Boston Marathon finish line is also a self-labelled performance artist who describes himself as “totes quirkster” and a “fashion designer first and a wannabe entrepreneur second.”

This policy of mine is, I am sure, a good one generally, although I am currently hard-pressed  to come up with a justification for it at precisely this moment. (more…)

Wintry mix. In April. Geez.

Two things about this:

 

  1. This weather is, indeed, ridiculous.  It’s Maryland in mid-April. I was promised that climate change would provide me with more wet and warm weather. I do not feel that this promise has been fulfilled, and I wish to lodge a complaint with the relevant authorities.
  2. That’s from the camera for the latest-generation iPod.  It is noticeably better than the last-generation iPod’s camera: if you were thinking of upgrading, I think that this should be a consideration.

This food mocks me.

MOCKS: “Pizza chain Domino’s will introduce this week a pizza made on a fried chicken crust.”  They could have made something like this at any time in the last six decades.  They should have made something like this, oh, twenty years ago when I had a digestive system that could laugh at any puny consequences.  But no.  They waited until I got amiably stout, and middle-aged.

Those bastards. Pardon my language. (more…)

So they’re redoing “Rosemary’s Baby” on NBC.

…I dunno.  I do like Zoe Saldana.

I think that I will reserve judgement on this one until I actually see it.  Although damned if I know how I will, if you’ll pardon the pun…

“Dancing In the Moonlight.”

Dancing In the MoonlightKing Harvest

This is reminding me of something from my childhood, but danged if I know what.  I don’t think that it’s something bad, though.

Total lunar eclipse tonight in Western hemisphere.

Goes “from 12:53 a.m. EDT (0453 GMT) to about 6 a.m. EDT (1000 GMT).” Unfortunately, my part of the country is under cloud cover right now, so I’ll miss it – but if your area has clear skies I suggest that you take a gander. Eclipses are always interesting.

…I just bought a mouse pad.

I mention this solely because I don’t think that I’ve ever actually bought a mouse pad before.  I’ve gotten them as promotions, been given them as gifts, permanently borrowed extras, and the one I have now I have no idea where it came from, but it probably actually came in the mail – but I’ve never bought one.  I don’t think that’s a common experience, so that’s why I’m mentioning it here.

Less Content Weekend, it seems.

Ehh. I’m blaming it on the first real nice weekend we’ve had this year.  God knows we could use one, after all that remarkably unpleasant winter…

Hey, Bundle of Holding is doing Mutants & Masterminds.

Was that one any good?

…What?  I haven’t played every roleplaying game in the universe.  And do you know how much some of this stuff cost?  Especially when I was younger, and hella poorer?  I apologize for liking food, clothing, and shelter, sorry.
