the problem with getting a glass of mtn dew out of habit first thing in the morning is that you might then decide you want a bowl of cereal.

i still have high score charts to improve, but after letting the DS sit idle for many months, i finally got around to beating Meteos (insofar as i bought everything that can be).  it's a good game, but where is the "i just want to relax and play" mode for my mom (and where is the gallery for the planet pictures? (and why can't i see the CPU's board when he dies? (and back on Metroid Prime Pinball, why aren't there Wireless-Bounty and Wireless-Time boards? (and where's the sound test? (and since when is it playable without the backlight? (btw, it was SoCo))))))?

the bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of the low price is forgotten.

...for the average person, the hunger for knowledge is like the hunger for food: we want to know just enough to take the edge off our appetite, then we're satisfied and we stop.

coupon must be surrendered between 5/5/08 and 6/1/08 to receive discount.  (pause)  that's much too mamby-pamby for me.  i want a coupon that will seize the discount by force.

i've yet to see the day you can make a deal with a mad dog, so while you're feedin' him sugar, i'll be figurin' a plan to muzzle 'im.

i don't drink often, but losing my twelve million Metroid Prime Pinball save because i had the foresight to plug the DS into a power strip (that happened to be off) was worth two shots.  (one likely would've been sufficient, but it didn't take effect instantaneously (and no, i didn't know there are two LEDs (oh, and whoever came up with triclops terror should be shot (i could keep going: could they have made bumping the table any more annoying (if only they could program it so that blowing on the screen would do something)? (how about the final boss? (why can't i reconfigure the buttons? (why is it so difficult to find the hole sometimes? (that's what she said))))))).)

a stupid man's report of what a clever man says is never accurate because he unconsciously translates what he hears into something he can understand.

rhetorical question #519: off the top of your head, do you know how to spell /kuz' en/?  i tried six variations that i knew weren't correct before i finally broke down and decided to just look it up.  so much for winning that spelling bee when i was a kid.

y'know, i once had a wolf, and a wolf only makes a good pet if he thinks he's a dog.

whenever you're about to begin a sentence with "i don't know if i should ask this, but...", you should probably give serious consideration to its being stillborn.

for how cheap talk is, isn't it kind of amazing just how much a misplaced phrase can cost you?

i wouldn't've thought it possible, but mtn dew can be made to taste even better simply by it being stored in a mega mouth can.

when i open my door it's like looking into a whole other place...

oh, and archangel's been down for the last 4 days and looks to continue that trend which would explain my lack of response to anything you might have sent there.  (and yes, that could be written better, but it would take either a second sentence or more caffeine than i currently have in my system.)

the other day we were under both a Flood Warning and a Fire Weather Advisory.  shouldn't they cancel out somehow?  (pause)  on a completely different note, isn't it interesting how you have "yesterday", "the day before yesterday", and then "the other day", which is basically everything from two days ago back to the day you were born?

the taste of despair is so much sweeter when it's torn from the cradle of faith.

if, when replying to a post asking how a word is pronounced in another language, you use the word "bow", you're not really helping.

i'm not hating; i'm expressing disappointment with conviction.

why don't on-line registration forms stop pretending and give us instructions that follow how we actually do things?  for instance: cut & paste address here.

what they got you teaching here, young sergeant?
    edged weapons, sir.  knife fighting.
don't you teach 'em knife fighting.  you teach 'em to kill.  that way they meet some sonofabitch studied knife fighting, they send his soul to hell.  it's all in the mind, sergeant.  that's where the battle's won.

whoever thought that it was a good idea to give people a running total of their forum "contributions" was incorrect.  there.  i've said it.
