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

Enjoying a fantastic holiday with friends and then coming home and having lots of media and shows to catch up on.

THIS!!

Only get paid on the 15th and "last day", so only 2 for me.

BUT - 10 of the 20 business days are already marked off as vacation!

The Legend of Korra. I watched the whole first season today. So short but so good.

Nice. Can't wait for the second season. Did you check that rad trailer yet?

If not, you can find it over in the Korra thread.

My love for today: I picked up 4 5" L brackets and used those to attach my computer desk to the studs in the wall. My desk no longer moves! It's freaking fantastic. I can now actually use a steering wheel for all those PC driving games I have. It's difficult to fully explain just how awesome it is.

All of you with desks that move. Spend the money and do it.

I have been lucky to be using my dad's old oak kitchen table (about 5' x 3') for my desk.
It is pretty solid, but I have never used a steering wheel with it.

I just bought a bunch of CDs from Amazon so I can finally replace my terrible 128 kbps audio files. I'd borrowed most of 'em from friends years ago, and I figured I might as well (finally) buy my own copies.

Nice! I recommend using Exact Audio Copy for ripping. It's fantastic. You can salvage scratched CD's pretty well. Rip to FLAC or Apple Lossless for lossless, CD Quality rips. You'll never have to do it again.

Do not use iTunes. It sucks.

When I heard this, I immediately thought of Portal 2. You will see what I mean at 30 seconds:

Second day in a row on the JEOPARDY! Kids Week that a contestant said they wanted to be a video game developer.

Listening to jazz on vinyl.

I have a Salt Weasel! What in the world can I do with a Salt Weasel?

Just got back from signing a lease (5 years) on a 2013 Toyota Matrix. 0% interest, $1000 in trade for our 8-year old Relay, another $1800 off because the salesman sold a van to my father-in-law a couple of months ago.

Bam it up another notch? Oh wait, that is a spice weasel.

BAM!

You need to come join the party.

After an interview and tour at the Curse office last week I was pretty sure it was as close to a dream job as I've ever been. This afternoon I finally heard back.

Thursday for lunch will be the final step, a "personality assessment" with the whole team over beers and burgers at the brand new brew pub downtown.

Keep it away from my brain weasel, for one thing. The latter are bad enough, don't want them to have extra sodium as well.

Awesome, just go easy in the beer! Well done!

But what if they're looking for a black out drunk?

You know, I was going to explain, but on second thought it's better like this.

Sweet deal! Maybe you can finally explain to me what they do aside from throwing parties at PAX East.

Their Curse Client for WoW mods was ridiculously helpful for keeping everything up to date... kind of essential for raid boss timers when things were being refined with a new patch.

We're driving up to Maine today!
