I have nothing to do tonight. No girlfriend. No family. No friends. Not even a sports game I care about. This is probably the first day like this in months.

I'm so happy.

A store near me carries it.
I was tempted by the Apple Crisp variety.
Not enough to buy it (I was on a mission to buy rum for the wife), but I was certainly tempted.

--Patrick
I just opened it and tasted it. It's actually not half bad. It's smooth, though a bit hot. You can definitely taste the corn. It doesn't have that charcoal flavor you get with a lot of whiskeys. I'd buy it again.

I'm trying to figure out why the hashtags #boymom and #girlmom are so obnoxious to me.
Because they're sexist constructs that reinforce the idea that a boy and a girl are inherently different and bound by our stereotypical cultural interpretations?

But, you know, less pretensiously worded. It's a modern and seemingly innocent reinterpretation of "boys will be boys" and "girls just want pink toys and barbies".

If you're looking for low cost flowers for that special someone, try the cemetary, people leave gorgeous bouquets free for the taking.

So your flight is delayed and you're stuck in an airport for 4 hours, bored out of your mind. Whatever shall you do?
Well, if you have a smartphone (and a cat!) and nothing else to do, maybe something like...this:

Just got a foot and a half section of tree branch thrown at me, so that's cool.

I am already requesting a do over for today please.

This seems like something I would do if I were younger.

I mean, I have done and still do stuff like this, I just don't leave the evidence around. I have no shame of public dancing, much to Mr. Z's chagrin.

But if Li'l Z and I get stuck at LAX in a few weeks, now I've got ideas to kill time. :devil:

Needs more kitty. Also, if you're alone at an airport, the kind of shot with your phone meters away while you're on a conveyor b elt is good way to lose your phone.

True, but we're also seeing a tiny segment. We don't know a) how it was placed on or in the cat carrier, b) if she made a friend along the way or trusted somebody to stand by it, or c) how empty that section was at the time.

If she's alone at an airport, then there's nobody else around to steal her phone now, is there?

So...a old friend of mine (all the way back to junior high) gave me one HELL of a deal. He works at a mobile game studio in England. We're both long-time adventure game fans (Sierra, LucasArts, etc). We got to talking and he said something like "Every time I wanna play an old school adventure game I feel guilty and open up Adventure Game Studio and keep trying to make my own." I said, "Well, if you ever want to, say, co-write one, I know this writer guy."

Then he offered me a deal.

He said if I write - top to bottom - an adventure game idea (story, puzzles, etc), he'll build one for me. And we got splits on an artist.

Now my brain is wracking for ideas. My first obvious go-to is Dill, but I want to do something else. I'm actually trying to think of a setting that's never been done in an adventure game.

I saw Cars before I was a dad. Heck, I saw Cars before I was even married.

—Patrick
I mean, so did we. We owned the dvd long before Li'l Z was even born. But we didn't introduce him to Cars, nor did we ever think it was going to be his obsession. Ah, the halcyon days...

I meant in the theater.

--Patrick
I figured. That's what I meant by, "so did we". I was trying to say that we enjoyed it prior to Li'l Z, but the thought never occurred to us that he was going to take an interest in it, especially after the franchise was so many years gone. (Not counting Planes.)

So I figured out a way to fuck up Hamburger Helper. Instead of buying two of the same kind, accidentally buy two different ones and mix them because you didn’t notice until it was too late. One called for a little water and a lot of milk and the other called for a lot of water and a little milk. This experiment is going to be interesting.
