we have a play table at work where kids can play with a thomas and friends wooden railway set. there was a kid, he had to be about four, playing with the trains today. he excitedly said to his mother, "mom! it's just like a video game!"

*facepalm*

and if anyone was wondering what type of video games this kid has been exposed to, i think i have a good idea. at one point, harold the helicopter crashed into a building and exploded...

i'm as big a fan of technology as the next fangirl who occasionally posts to livejournal, but this seriously made my head hurt. i didn't like a decade ago when 'gamer' started to change to only mean 'one who plays video games.' and i really hope now that 'play' isn't changing to mean soley playing on digital devices...

makes sense to me

so we decided something at work yesterday. if there's a discrepancy in the inventory that can't be explained by normal means, then there's only ony one possibility: voodoo. or aliens. or voodoo-practicing aliens.

so, i was in a restaurant this morning, and that morning show with kelly ripa was on. i don't usually watch that kind of stuff, but it was on, so i really couldn't avoid it. here's a video of the beginning of this morning's episode. the part i'm referencing is at about 9:50.

michael: do you do a lot of shopping online?
kelly: i do a lot of shopping online, but i have to have seen it in person first.

so, what you're saying, kelly, is that you fully support the practice of showrooming, even though it deprives brick and mortar stores of sales?

modefied rapture

you probably think my last post was a little uncharacteristic for my journal. turns out my obscure sense of humor is even more obscure than i intended.

i was merely trying to point out that the widely reported date of the end of the world (or rapture, depending on who you talk to) had an uncanny resemblance to the plot of the book good omens.

:D

i saw on the news this morning that the world's going to end on may 21st at 6pm.

so, the world ends on a saturday. this saturday, in fact, right before dinner. hmm… this sounds familiar. :D

Is your cat plotting to kill you?

i found this video on youtube - it's a fan video for shiny toy guns' version of major tom (coming home). it's really nice quality for a fan video.

however, i looked through the comments, and not a single person mentioned hilly, the female version of the ship's computer from red dwarf. i seriously can't be the only one who thought of that... i'm not being critical, i swear. i like this video. but in several scenes, with the camera angle and that hairstyle.... i thought of hilly. :D can you really blame me?
