Random thing you love right now that doesn't deserve its own thread

My favorite Scrabble song.

In other things I love (other than crappy puns and lame jokes) I just preordered this, and this...

Probably belongs more in in the 'stupid things I bought this month' thread, but I'm justifying the purchases as one being my FSMas gift and the other being a very early birthday present.

1 - Seeing that Halo: Combat Evolved is on the XBox for 800 spacebucks, downloading it and accepting that I am playing it for the story, and so will be playing it on easy.

2 - Seeing all of the UFC shows that are on Netflix.

Hang up the Chick habit...

I love this song. Of course I associate it with Death Proof and Rosario Dawson. "Everything is turning gray!"

And I will never give up the (Tom) Chick habit. *hugs Tom psychically* If you squeeze him he says, "McMaster!"

Sometimes a loathe goes so far it becomes a love. I guess last week I was complaining about stupidly unhelpful technical issues ("The computer won't let me"), and suggested students who phrase things like that automatically fail a class.

So I work at a university. In my building there are two front doors. One of them is broken, and has a big yellow sign on both sides of it saying "PLEASE USE OTHER DOOR ==>". Guess which door I've seen more students try to use. Not even five minutes ago, a student just hurt her hand and dropped her food trying to use that door.

It's like the old Far Side Midvale School for the Gifted cartoon in here.

So now I've got a new idea: at graduation, the student has to pass through a doorway with two doors to get their degree. One of the doors won't open. It is clearly marked. If they can grab their degree, they graduate!

Think you're being too easy on them. Dip their degree in cheese and put it at the end of a full size maze with doors that only open if they answer random course questions. Could count for 90% of their grade.

And might give them the taste of the rat race once they do graduate.

Oh my god! All the time with this. We have a lot of double doors where if you open one side if f*cks everything up because it's only supposed to be opened for moving large objects through. All of these doors have signs on them saying "Please use other door". Most of the students I see using those doors open the door with the sign on them.

Well of course. The sign catches their attention, and then they go straight for it. It's like magnetism.

And maybe someone could get around to fixing that other door.

2 things.

After years of lobbying I'm finally having an office Christmas dinner at St John

Also

I couldn't remember the name of the fat lunatic Fox presenter with the chalkboard. Google had the answer

@$%&ing Doors: How do they work?

Butter Beer. This stuff is pretty good! Pumpkin Juice ain't bad either.

And these people get college degrees? Once again someone reinforces my opinion that a college degree mostly states that one paid the college money for x number of years.

Hey there! Woah! I went to college. And now I'm unemployed! Wait. Er. Um. *attempts recovery* Ahhhh. *fails* Establishing a counter-argument did not go as planned.

Here's your sign.

Yup, it's basically cream soda and butterscotch syrup, and it's AWESOME.

Fleece-lined sweatpants.

I love that I found a series of Let's Play videos for Dark Souls. I love that I watched them, and I love that I prevented myself wasting 30 of Her Majesty's British Pounds on a game that would have seen me throwing my controller at the wall within the hour.

I'm not saying it's a bad game, as it is obviously beautifully constructed, but I guess it appeals to those who like a challenge, and that's putting it mildly.

Hugs.

Vanilla vodka tastes like cream soda.

LouZiffer's wife made those with whipped cream flavored vodka and orange juice.

Congrats! I suppose my dreams of hiring Q-Stone will have to wait.

If you mix Franjelico and Baileys it tastes just like a Snickers Bar...

Spoiler:

Only going down, not coming back up later when you've drunk WAY MORE than you should because they tasted so good.

So I've heard

Cute house too!
