Xmas blues

December 23, 2007

I’m sort of not looking forward to heading to my parents’ house for Xmas. Mostly because I’m not a big fan of hanging around with extended family and friends that I don’t have much in common with. It ends up being a fairly boring time overall. I should obviously use the fact that I’m switching to a new aligner on Tuesday as an excuse to go lie down and watch TV or something.

In other news, here are two completely unrelated links (via BoingBoing):

I admit it. I’m a pop culture junkie. I watch Survivor (boo Todd) and Amazing Race (yay Phil). I watch The Soup and Best Week Ever. And this video is funneh.

The word of the year

W00t. Yes, according to Miriam-Webster, it is supposed to be spelled with zeroes. There’s a hilarious video from CNN where some non-nerds try to understand the “w00t” phenomenon. Interestingly, the WordPress editor doesn’t flag “w00t” as being misspelled, but it does flag “WordPress.” My head is about to explode from the irony.

In any event, I’m w00ting because my power is back on. Hooray electricity!
