I've got the turkey in the oven...

But what I'm really excited about is Cyber Monday! Who cares about giving thanks and spending time with your friends and family when you can be shopping?

I've decided to skip Black Friday this year. Why? Because it's like the worst thing ever. Standing elbow-to-elbow in a herd of disgruntled shoppers willing to push you down and rip your head off just so they can buy the new iPod for half price is not exactly my idea of a good time...

With Cyber Monday I can skip the crowds and all of the fighting and running around and just sit in my pajamas and easily buy what I need. Now that's what I'm talkin' about! Just sitting back, relaxing, and buying what I need without all of the hassle. Why do it any other way?

Well, the turkey smells like it's starting to burn so I'm going to have to cut this post short right now and go tend to that. But I'm interested in what you guys are all doing today to celebrate, ummm, wait... What is Thanksgiving a celebration of again? Well, anyway, happy Thanksgiving!

Happy 10th Birthday Sega Dreamcast!

Well, today marks the 10th anniversary of the U.S. release of the Sega Dreamcast video game console, and it seems like everyone is getting in on the action, so why not me as well?

I bought a Sega Dreamcast as soon as it came out, and to be quite frank, it was probably the best purchase I ever made. I loved the thing to no end, and it provided me and my friends with many sleepless nights playing games like Sonic Adventure, Crazy Taxi, Jet Grind Radio, Seaman, Soul Calibur, and countless others. I've owned a lot of video game systems over the years, but for some reason, the Dreamcast sticks out as the host of all of my fondest memories attributed to my video gaming hobby - there was just something special about Sega's last machine, and the fact that it died an early death makes it all the more special. So here's to you, Sega and your Dreamcast, for providing the best, most unique gaming experience ever. You were awesome!

Brewing My Own Beer!

Hey folks, I just bought this totally awesome beer kit that I found at this how to brew your own beer site. I got it in the mail yesterday and I am about to embark on the exciting journey of home-brewing later today. I'm pretty stoked - too bad it will take a few days before I can taste the fruits of my labor. Oh well, patience is a virtue and all that nonsense. The process should be pretty fun - I've got a few friends coming over and we're gonna try to brew as much as possible tonight. I'll let you know how it turns out.

Alright, time to go brew some beer!

Dogs wearing sunglasses

Oh. My. God. Sunglasses. On. Dogs!!! These are like the cutest things I've ever seen in my entire life! Gotta admire the creativity of whoever invented the idea of sticking a slick pair of sunglasses on a dog - they definitely made the world a better place when they decided to make these things available to the public.

Isn't this just the most adorable thing you've ever seen? Can't wait to buy a pair for my dog Sally and watch her parade around town in her new shades like a total badass! It's things like this that makes life not suck...

The Awesomeness of Carl's Jr.'s Kentucky Bourbon Six Dollar Burger

Over at Yahoo there's an article talking about new high-calorie fast food items although it's not very interesting - if you've seen one of these lists bitching about how fat people in America are getting and how it's all the fast food companies fault and BLAH BLAH BLAH, you've pretty much seen them all. This stupid shit about counting calories and fat and whatever the "health risk" flavor of the day is at that particular moment is completely ridiculous. IF YOU DON'T WANT TO EAT THE FOOD THEN DON'T FUCKING EAT IT! I'm sure most people in this world realize that there's a limit on the amount of food they should eat and when they've crossed it. Complaining and acting like you know what's best for everyone makes you a, well, A DEMOCRAT! And also annoying and stupid and no one will ever like you. The End.

Oh yeah, and Carl's Jr.'s new Kentucky Bourbon Six Dollar Burger is delicious. And you know it...

Susan Boyle Isn't Ready To Be Forgotten Yet

It seems like people have really started to forget about Susan Boyle lately. Blame the insane media frenzy surrounding her over the past few months. Blame the fact that she hasn't been able to spread her wings and do what she wants to do, making her seem like a one-trick-pony (contractual obligations have prevented her from being able to sing ANY song that she didn't previously sing on Britain's Got Talent). Just don't blame HER. She didn't ask for any of this - She just wanted the opportunity to sing, get her beautiful voice heard, and maybe find some sort of audience. It's not her fault that the news media are vicious, hungry sharks just waiting for the next big thing that comes their way to feed on and suck completely dry.

Susan Boyle isn't going anywhere. With any luck she'll stop receiving news coverage every time she walks outside, and she'll definitely show us all why we liked her to begin with once her new CD comes out.

Grab Your Hamburgers With a Handy Hamburger-Grabber

Yep, you read that title right. Thanks to the recent phenomenon of answers to problems that no one in the world has, there is now a concept design for a device which, depending on your personality, is either genius, preposterous, useless, or maybe somewhere between. Allow me to introduce you to the CHOMPr hamburger grasper, which according to the press release is "a conceptual hamburger grasping device for high-end restaurants." Looking like two coffee tables held together by those pins you get from Ikea to keep your cabinets from collapsing on themselves, the CHOMPr wants to calm the conflict between the less-than-delicate process of eating a hamburger and formal, suit-and-tie surroundings.

To some, whether you need a hamburger grasping utensil besides the ones at the ends of your arms is sort of, well, stupid. But it does raise a very interesting etiquette question, because it adresses the issues of the use of utensils as an element of table manners and hands as a dimension of utensils. In the first case, utensils are a part of modern civilization exactly because they are not your hands, and the invention of utensils has followed a path more or less coinciding to the Industrial Revolution, reaching the boiling point in the Victorian era, when a fully outfitted silver trousseau set could span the gamut at around more than 500 pieces.

Why I'm the coolest person in the world...

Yesterday I traveled back in time and stopped myself from being born.

The day before that I walked to the moon.

I can turn into a werewolf if I want to bad enough.

I'm my mother's father.

I invented elbows.

You're all just figments of my imagination and I can make you disappear just by wishing it so.
