What brand did you buy? Been meaning to find some sort of pomade type goop for my facial furniture.

I'm a Dapper Dan man, myself.

We don't sell Dapper Dan here, we sell Fop.

If I had to do over again I would have run away from home as a child.

My fiance's dad bought me a used bicycle as a present a couple years ago.  Her dad buys everyone bikes, regardless of whether they use them or not.  He uses excuses like "Well I saw it and it was just your size, couldn't resist".  Though I am rather tall, so finding a bicycle my size isn't exactly easy.

Well I finally decided to have him bring it up from Pittsburgh to my place in Manhattan.  I resisted so long because there's not much space in our apartment.  But I should have had him bring it up a lot sooner, there are some great bike trails in the city.  I just rode 11 miles from my place at the top of Manhattan all the way to Battery Park at the bottom tip, all along this beautiful path that follows the Hudson river.  And then I rode back up.  It was great.

Is www.google.com down?

Dunno, but I can let you use https://www.google.com.au/ if you like.

I tried that, but I had to turn my monitor upside down.

Why do I still check Woot! every day?

It's been at least 2 years since I bought anything there. 
Now it's mostly big and/or expensive stuff instead of weird closeout stuff.

Must be like a worry free gambling addiction or something.  Like, oh, let's see if Woot! has something interesting today, like a $15 weather station or toy helicopter....  Nope, $300 set of knives....  Oh well....

I know exactly what you mean. It's most likely because Amazon bought it in 2010.

Sorry.  :-\

I still check shirt.woot quite frequently, despite so very rarely every actually buying a new-

No, wait, I just saw a good one today and bought it (this one). So, uh, never mind.

In other thoughts, I've started putting a resume together to start submitting to ambulance companies in the near future. Which is somewhat tricky, as I've never actually had to make a resume before (my first job was a quickie application/interview affair, and my current job was acquired via nepotism). I've found a good template that should hopefully do the trick, and have some decent references, but I'm still a bit nervous. I don't much like having to play myself up in any kind of official capacity, it always makes me a bit queasy (unofficially I am, of course, amazing).

I would also like to say that, after having to deal with it for about a week, there is no institution that lives up to its stereotype quite so well as the DMV.

Yeah!  It's your fault!  BURN HIM!!!!!

Has it been that long already?  So it's probably been more like 4 years since I bought anything from Woot!, I think things started to go bigger and more expensive for a while before they sold out to Amazon.

The descriptions of the items are not even as funny as they used to be, I do remember that changing when the big river swallowed them up.  Sometimes the descriptions would be crazy long and very funny.

No great loss really, less crap to throw away, of the 10 or so things I ever bought there I think I only have 2 I still use.

Is it really worth it to have friends if every interaction with them ends in me thinking how much I hate them? At this point I only really have friends so that I don't look like the freak without friends.

Know what you mean. Of course, I don't really have friends anymore for just that reason. I have enough frustration from my family. I don't need someone I don't live with annoying the hell out of me, too.
