on a lighter note

November 18, 2008

Here are some pretty entertaining/thought provoking things I have tripped over in the past little while.  In no particular order:

1. The awesomeness that is this conversation:

Girl: “We want Terminator 2 Sarah Connor.”
Librarian: “You mean the older movie with Schwarzenegger?”
Guy: “No, the one on TV.”
Librarian: “The Sarah Connor Chronicles? The TV show?”
Guy: “Yeah, that one.”
Librarian: “Ok, we don’t have it, but I can order season 1 for you.”
Girl: “No, we want season 2”
Librarian: “You mean the one that’s on tv right now?”
Guy: “Yeah, that one.”
Librarian: “It’s on TV. It’s not on DVD yet.”
Guy and Girl: …
Librarian: “They don’t release the DVDs for a season until after the season is over.”
Guy: “You mean you can’t just get it for us? Like burn it onto a DVD for us?”

2: A brilliant little choose your own adventure, website style:

You are enjoying a lunch, Chinese, and all is well, as things should be on afternoons like this.

but wait! as you reach for the fortune cookie, something stops you. a sudden sense of dread. a sense of … foreboding.

what do you do?

3. I really want to try these in my hair, but I have a feeling my thin little blondie strands won’t look nearly as cool as this ladies.

4. And last but not least, I seriously think at least trying to submit spider drawings in exchange for debts is always a good first thing to try – via the lovely Slackmistress


  1. open the cookie! open the cookie!

  2. I love the library.

    I didn’t save my friend, until eventually I got to the right place. Go me!

    I’m “nominating” you for the Kreativ Blogger award. See here: http://thenewisthetrue.blogspot.com/2008/11/memememememememe.html


    Hope you’re doing well.
