Do brushes with semi-celebrity count? Cause I ran into Reggie Watts in a cafe in Dublin earlier today. He paid for my drink. It was super cool.

Yes, that totally counts; congrats! :D

I just watched a Nigerian rower finish his qualifying heat in 4th about a minute behind the 3rd place finisher...

...but crowd cheered him on harder than anyone! THAT is what the Olympics are all about. Image

I could have sworn that the Olympics were about America crushing everyone else.

I seem to recall a story about Americans being crushed by the Chinese because Americans believe you're either born with it or you're not, while the Chinese believe in perfection through effort.

Just me who read that?

That's a pretty generous interpretation of China's philosophy; I would have said that they believe in 'programming from birth'.

Managed to land a record that's been out of print since 2006 from discogs in what the seller claims to be mint condition. Didn't cost me more than a new record from Chemical. Woop Woop!

Nope. Sorry, but at least your misunderstanding has been corrected and you can step from the shadows of ignorance and join us in the light of knowledge. :)

I've just found out that I could create my own water-transfer decals for my Space Marine chapter. I didn't know I could do that before today! :D

Found a tweet. A tweet I hadn't solicited and which wasn't directed at me. It was one of the actresses cast in my play, talking about my play.

I've never met her, as I didn't have a hand in the casting process, but it's quite a thought that this thing I wrote now has a life outside my head and my computer. It has been leased on the world. Well, a small part of the world, but the world nonetheless.

Ok, so my marks have, in fact, been amended. I just need to find out from admin whether or not they sent out an updated record.

This is also LOL-worthy and has been cross-posted.

I wish I could have been on that bus, if only to see the looks on the bogans' faces as they were left in the dust. :D

I have an interview with my local Bulk Barn! :D I applied there a couple months ago for the summer but hell, I can work through the school year too. I really need a job.

And I feel like this time I can do it without getting all scared and shy.

Here's hoping!

I'd say this is fairly win:

Gay marriage in New York boosts the economy by a quarter of a billion dollars. I can think of worse ways to fight a recession.
