As we all know, Mondays suck. So, after a long (Mon)day, you can come home and "get the Monday off."
Remember not to scrub. I have been warned that scrubbing never helps anything.

Real-Life Facebook Comments

We need Facebook posting in real life. At the very yummy Caputos Deli in the Humanities building today, I noticed a poster announcing a design contest, I think. "If the future is not electric cars, what is it?"

I need the patented Real-Life Facebook Poster so I could add a tag to the bottom: Tomorrow.

Canned Unicorn Meat held-up at German Customs, confused with the real deal

Dec. 3, 2010 (10:55 am) By: Doug Osborne

When our sister site ThinkGeek decided to take an April Fool’s Day item and turn it into a real one, consumers became giddy to be one of the first owners of a tin of “Canned Unicorn Meat.” Although the item inside the can is in reality a dissected plush Unicorn toy, German Customs Authorities were not laughing when they seized an order for the magically delicious treat when it arrived in the country.
It seems German Customs officers believe the ThinkGeek item is actually meat from a “rare” animal and as such has been held-up for delivery according to a German consumer by the name of Ingomaras. She explains in a message she sent to ThinkGeek.
I just learned that it is not very helpful to describe the “canned unicorn meat” as “canned unicorn meat” on the invoice when trying to import this.
Customs get really irritated as it’s supposedly food and meat of a “rare” animal. For the sake of keeping things smooth please label it as “canned unicorn (plush toy)” or something less conspicuous.
My delicous [sic] unicorn is stuck in customs for almost a week now.
Best regards,
I guess the two things we can learn from this scenario are:  German Customs are very literal when it comes to items entering the country and/or at some point there were actually Unicorns running around Germany.

So, yesterday we were in heavy anticipation of the snowstorm to end all snow storms. One of those, "stay off the roads... if possible, do not leave your homes... the elderly and very young WILL NOT SURVIVE" kind of storms. Schools sent children home early; colleges and universities closed campus; hundreds of snow plows were gassed and ready to hit the streets. We were prepared. Then came "Snow-maggedon"..."Snow-zilla"... "Snow-pocolypse"... or not. It snowed pretty heavily at my house for about an hour and then.... nothing. Yep, I woke up this morning to approximately 4 more inches of snow. The other end of the valley seems to have received even less. Truly, the Storm Of The Century was "Snow-verrated"

I love it when my food and/or eating implements works to entertain me while I dine. At Noodles & Co, I always go for the chopsticks. Today, I noticed this:

Now THAT'S my kind of chopstick!
