The Pug, currently sleeping on my lap, just snored the first 5 notes of the theme song for the original 70s Night Gallery. With perfect pitch and tempo.

When browsing the youtube comments I've noticed a growing trend of people/bots posting affirming things under horrible names. Like, in reply to a comment, "AGoodOvenIsFullOfJews said, 'Excellent post, you have firm reasoning which will benefit you throughout the day." Often feeling fortune cookiey but sincere and not sarcastic.

Yesterday, for no reason I ever learned, there was a box of Jello instant vanilla pudding stuck in the handrail on our elevator. I noticed it when I went up to lunch, and when I came down it was in a different position. So someone checked it out and then just put it back. It made me and most of the people I told about it laugh way more than we probably should.

My dirt devil just ate a sock.

Not choked on, just ate it, swhumph, gone. I didn't have time to react.



It can keep it. I don't want it back that badly.

So I'm driving down this sort of boring stretch of road today, and there's an SUV in front of me with a bumpersticker that says, "Suck it up, Buttercup," except all caps, really big. And that's the only sticker, too, so it wasn't one of those things where someone gets every mildly amusing sticker they see and puts it on their car. This was a sentiment so important to this person that she found it necessary to broadcast it to everyone who saw her on the road. Not directed to anyone in particular, really, unless "Buttercup" counts, which it doesn't. This is the main thing this woman wanted to say to the world.

"Huh," I thought to myself.

And then, the greatest thing happened. She ended up in a turn only lane when she wanted to go straight. This is a boring stretch of road, but it's pretty busy at this point. And rather than, oh, say, sucking it up, accepting that she made a mistake, and suffering the mild inconvenience of making the unwanted turn and then getting reoriented and back in the direction she meant to go, she stopped in the middle of the road. Just stopped in 40MPHish traffic, backed up everyone else in her lane, put her turn signal on (I think), and wedged her way into the lane she wanted to be in, subsequently backing them up as well and making a bunch of people miss their green lights.

It is always someone else who is supposed to suck it up.

Some guy left a business card on the urinal at my job yesterday. It had the usual stuff, name/number/company, but I had no idea what the company was.

A quick search on my phone later, I realize the company sells bathroom supplies. I guess that was pretty clever?
