WIl Wheaton's Keynote Address at PAX

It's here. And I guess I shouldn't be surprised, but he's a pretty good speaker. No wonder actors go into politics.

Ham sandwich?

The problem is, I'm not very fond of ham.

You Are a Ham Sandwich
You are quiet, understated, and a great comfort to all of your friends.
Over time, you have proven yourself as loyal and steadfast.
And you are by no means boring. You do well in any situation - from fancy to laid back.

Your best friend: The Turkey Sandwich

Your mortal enemy: The Grilled Cheese Sandwich
What Kind of Sandwich Are You?

A Tale of Two Videos

Puttering around, I saw this video on Joe.My.God.

And it's fun, but I'm wondering if I could be one of the guys in the video.

And then I saw this video on LlamaButchers.

And I have to wonder what's going on, when the much swishier video is on the blog run by happily married guys?

Sunburn Sunday!

My sister [who lives in Kansas] called me yesterday around 10 AM, saying she was in Houston and coming to Galveston with a friend. Somewhat annoying, but I've gotten used to it. We met on the beach, and went to a local hangout for lunch [Mosquito Cafe, if anyone cares, and yeah it is highly recommended].

It turned out it wasn't quite as random as it sounded, she has several standby passes she got from a friend, that she's trying to use before the school year starts.

Her friend is almost stereotypically "progressive," now he's into the local food meme. I was good, bit my tongue, and didn't get into any arguments. So, I'm glad I got to see her, annoyed she didn't give me advance warning.

Oh my, I'll never read Garfield the same way again:

There's a lot of fun math related stuff too.

You have been pwned by a grue.
