Mighty Crappy

Mighty Mouse

If the scroll ball on my Mighty Mouse at work didn’t give up the ghost this afternoon, I don’t think I might have found Dave Shea’s musings as funny as I do right now.

P.S. Anyone have a recommendation for a decent (inexpensive to moderately priced) mouse that I can requisition at work tomorrow morning?

I finally managed to see Brick with Sarah this weekend — and I’d go so far as to say that it’s probably my favorite movie of the past year. Then again, I’ve always had a soft spot for film noir inspired work.

Perhaps one of my favorite bits of the movie were the snappy, rapid fire verbal acrobatics. How rapid fire was it? Let’s just say that at times, the delivery would have made the Gilmore Girls head spin.

Brad Bramish: Oh yeah?
Brendan Frye: Yeah.
Brad Bramish: Oh yeah?
Brendan Frye: Yeah.
Brad Bramish: Yeah?
Brendan Frye: There’s a thesaurus in the library. Yeah is under “Y”. Go ahead, I’ll wait.

Renting this totally made up for seeing “Snakes On A Plane” on Friday…
