*yawn* Sunday

Major pet peeve: misquotations. I have a better-than-average memory for jokes — meaning I retain about 11% as compared to most people's 10% — so it really chaps my ass when somebody repeats one I've heard (or told!) and gets it wrong. I was in my late teens before I learned to stop correcting them.

Whew. Just had to get that off my chest.

Until last night, I hadn't gone to Partner-san's house for a fight night party in quite a while, and I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it, cigar smoke aside. Most of my friends are very smart, very funny people. I passed up an evening at MarsCon to be there, a fact I did not even realize until . . . right now. Oops. So I guess I didn't miss the con much.

I baked chocolate chip cookie bars and fudge brownies for my contribution to the munchie feast. They were very well received, and I only had to bring home about half a dozen. I'll have some of them for dinner with some of the fine Bell's beer I bought. Mmm.

Being the huge geek that I am, I'm currently downloading a couple of stand-up comedy specials from iTunes. At $1.99 for 22 minutes, it's a bargain. They take forever to download. But Dat Phan in particular is worth it. What is it with me and cute, funny Asian guys?

And that's about the extent of my weekend excitement. I put away clean clothes, a chore long overdue, and did some cleaning. Just can't bring myself to iron, though.



  • What a coinkydink! Dat Phan performed at Chef Jeff's theater last Friday night and was, by all accounts, a very cool dude.

    By the way, I think I retain about 3% of jokes -- but when I hear them re-told incorrectly, I definitely recognize it!
