Twitters of the day

  • 11:47 This is one of those days where I need an "I AM WORKING ON THE TEST AND WILL HAVE IT FIXED SOONER IF YOU STOP BOTHERING ME" sign on my door #
  • 17:56 I want to kill the entire trusted root certificate store security design in the face. #
  • 00:04 Interesting: Satasuma mandarin oranges peel better if I get them started with the blunt bioplastic knives at work instead of my paring knife #
  • 11:06 Useful thing about the netbook: It's got lots of drive space, so I repartitioned it for two OSes. It's very practical for work-from-home. #

Grumpycat closeup

Grumpycat closeup

I took a handful of photos back on Black Friday, and I'm only getting the chance to upload them now.

Meet Grumpycat.

Grumpycat hangs out at the local grocery store, near the employee entrance.

Grumpycat hates everybody but expects to be fed by complete strangers anyway. Grumpycat is not stray; he (she?) is in too good a condition to be stray. Grumpycat is just grumpy, and apparently likes to leave home to... go sit in one place where it's cold outside, apparently.

Mall parking lot, redux

I spent Black Friday grocery shopping and relaxing at home. I did not go to the mall to shop for gifts. Instead, I took pictures of the mall to laugh at all the people who *did*.

I'm glad I have a bike so I'll never really have to deal with a parking lot quite like that. Although I'd still have to deal with the crowds, which is why I never got any closer to the mall than the point from where I took this photo- which was a zoomed shot.

There are several more photos similar to this in my Photostream, so I encourage y'all to take a look...
