    Even the places that call french fries "chips" don't call them french fry chips!

    For what it's worth, she said that, not me :)

    And I'm no closer to having any idea what it means in response to the concern I raised to her. I haven't even taken my pain meds yet, so I can't blame it on brain fog.

    It's like asking someone for their phone number and having them say "purple".

    I think this is the first time I've ever heard someone say "taco chips". Tortilla chips, yes, but never "taco chips".

    Yeah, when someone says, "taco chips," I just assume they mean taco-flavored tortilla chips.

    If I heard "taco chip" in the wild, I'd assume they meant nachos.

    Or they're one of the idiots that answer my Craigslist postings.

    I wish I had some nachos, or taco chips, right now. I just watched Grey's Anatomy and I'm so stressed out and I've been crying for half an hour non-stop.

    I suck at making promotional materials. I mean, I REALLY suck at it. A friend of mine suggested a site called PosterMyWall and I made this little thing in about 15 minutes for a gig my company is putting on for the 9th. Holy crap was it easy!

    That site is neat, but runs like I've got windows 10 on a 386 when using Firefox. I'll have to revisit it later using a different browser to see if it's any better.

    Yeah, about that.

    There are probably enough of us out there that hate having to decode if the month comes before the day or not.

    Please just say September 5.

    But it's definitely a nifty substitute for publisher and several clipart galleries.

    A professor of mine from back at university just tried to recruit me to teach translation at her new university. I had to turn her down, because I really don't have time to even take a part-time teaching role, but it was nice to be asked.

    Man, 10 or so years ago I couldn't get away from that song. It was everywhere. On my station, on competing stations, on every other WoW AMV, everywhere.

    Between XM, Apple Radio, and Pandora, I've successfully managed to avoid the current trends in music over the last 15 or so years. I haven't really listened to local radio outside of sporting events since ~2003.

    I wanna say I'm generally plugged in with pop culture, politics I usually ask friends about...mostly because the idiocy that comes from Overlord Trump never surprises/nondepresses me as a human being.

    Well, not all the poprock music has been bad (until recently). I rather liked The Killers' debut single, Somebody Told Me. And just about anything by Muse from roughly 7 years ago is gold.

    But yeah, myself, I've mostly taken refuge in trance for the duration. Armin van Buuren, Roger Shah, Aly & Fila, Sean Tyas, Ferry Corsten, Markus Schultz, Above and Beyond, M.I.K.E. Push, Giuseppe Ottiviani, Pedro Del Mar, Victor Dinaire, Paul Oakenfold, Andi Durant, and Paul van Dyk are my favorites :D
