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

I had the BEST telemarketer interaction yesterday.

We were leaving the house to pick up my wife from work, and the phone rang. I picked it up, because it could have been her letting me know of a delay.

Long story short, it hangs up as soon as I get it. Making our way to the door again, it rings again.

sh*t, could be her, let's get it again. Last thing I want is two tired kids telling me how bored they are waiting for mummy in the car.

"Hi, my name is Angela from generic annoying company, apologies for just hanging up on you a moment ago"

I jump in before she can go any further with her pre-prepared speech.

"No problems, allow me to return the favour"

*click*

Didn't stop smiling for the rest of the afternoon.

Yea, I'm gonna have to steal that somehow.

Awesome!

Finally found a video of someone finishing Tunnels of Armageddon! Of course you have to cheat because this game is IMPOSSIBLE

WOOHOO! Got 4 day passes for SDCC just before the Saturday badges sold out. The Simpsons are going to San Diego!

I gotta' do a Retro Flashback of Tunnels of Armageddon some day. That game was insane but also so good in a Super Hexagon kind of way.

So this was in my Facebook feed this morning (I "liked" I f*cking Love Science):

I thought it was hilarious.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I spotted that too, Eleima. It made me laugh louder than was probably warranted.

And happy St. Paddy's Day to all my Irish friends, native or adopted!

Cleaning out my attic and was throwing out my old 3.5in disk based games and I stumbled upon this:

We struggled for weeks with one part of our comedy show. It finally made the stage last night after committing a huge piece of the weekend to it, after the weeks of rewrites, and got some of the best laughs from the audience.

Only potentially toxic. But definitely like glue-sniffing.

Kevin Trudeau sentenced to ten years in jail. About f*cking time, he's been scamming people with quackery for decades now, even ignoring direct court orders to stop. Personally, I would have been happy with a longer sentence, but this will do for now.

The Aquabats are doing an east coast tour!!! Been a good 10 years or so since I've seen them! SOOOOOO RAD!!!!

His light sentence is due to "sentence reduction techniques 'they' don't want you to know about."

He used to be on late night TV in Australia AGES ago flogging Mega Memory Techniques with Danny Bonaduce. I thought that name rung a bell.

Will it make a difference though? When asked how far he'd go with quackery and cartooning, Trudeau replied, "Just watch me."

Catching up on all the posts I missed while in the hospital. I've been reading all day.

Yeah, just got caught up in the loathe thread, but now that you've quoted me, Dee, can't go back and edit that blunder.
My heartfelt sympathies, Malor.

blunder, what blunder?

Blunder? You're the mother of a newborn; you can do no wrong!

Hehe, well kinda. In my defense, I just woke up and was still catching up on all the various threads, still on my phone too.

Back on track: my newborn only woke me twice last night. This is too good to be true, and I'm just waiting for the other shoe to drop.
Then again, I figure that with #1 not sleeping well until he was 13 months, I've got some spare karma on that point, right?
