I can’t tell you how many times Tokyo Joe’s has lost my lunch business simply because there’s no place to park.

Meanwhile, at Subway…

There is a gigantic freaking sign that says, “Please Order Here”, yet you continue to walk up to the opposite end of the counter to order your sandwiches. Why, People? Why?

What odd quirk of fate and evolution lead to dogs and cats being the domesticated pets of choice for so many people? How different would our world be if the choices were alligator or bat?

The Channel Formerly Known as SciFi has cancelled Eureka. WHILE EPISODES ARE STILL IN PRODUCTION FOR 20-FREAKING-12. If they have to make stupid decisions, you’d think they would at least not announce the cancellation until the actual episodes start airing? This ‘we’re cancelling X show but will run out the remaining episodes over the next 2 years’ bit is bullshit.  Also, depressing.  Remind anyone else of Stargate: Universe?

“Do you have any bat-babies?”

“Sorry, no – the alligators got loose…”

LOUD GUYS IN THE NEXT BOOTH ARE LOUD.

Who was the first person to look at an olive and think, “Man – gotta eat me one of those.”?

WorldCon. Reno. Next week. Oh, yeah.

Oh my god! A message from the future just arrived – for me! From me! It’s dated August 22nd, 2011 and reads, “Dear Moron, you should’ve gotten into better shape for WorldCon. Your feet hurt, your back aches and now you have to go to work.”

D’oh.

Subway Girl walking by shut up the LOUD GUYS for a second.

Who was the first person to put olives on their finger-tips and nom-nom them?
