Best blonde joke going around

Posted by Tim Riley Wed, 04 Jan 2006 05:48:42 GMT

I’m not one to normally link to jokes, but this one is probably the best I’ve ever come across. Worth a look!

Cousin Pisano's Spinach & Tuna Salad

Posted by Tim Riley Tue, 29 Nov 2005 04:57:00 GMT

Docpi says: If you are such a tuna fan, I suggest you consider spinach & tuna salad once:

  1. Take the best raw spinach you can get. It must be prime quality and spotless.
  2. Dump a can of whole tuna filet in olive oil over it.
  3. Very slightly (I mean it) fry some pine nuts and sprinkle across the landscape.
  4. Add olive oil, a hint of vinegar or lemon juice, salt, pepper.
  5. Have at it!
  • The pine nuts are optional, the pepper and olive oil are not.
  • And man, that stuff is uber-yummy.

Best Season 3 Gilmore Girls dialogue yet

Posted by Tim Riley Thu, 03 Nov 2005 15:58:00 GMT

Lane’s band need to choose a name for themselves…

Dave: What we need is a name.

Brian: I made my suggestion.

Zach: Yeah, and we vetoed ‘The Harry Potters.’ Next.

Brian: So yours is better?

Zach: ‘Follow Them to the Edge of the Dessert’ is memorable and classy.

Brian: I run out of breath every time I say it.

Zach: You’ve got asthma, dude. You run out of breath saying your name.

Dave: Yeah, Brian, we can’t work our name around your respiratory illnesses.

Brian: Even without an inhaler, ‘Follow Them to the Edge of the Dessert’ is too long.

Zach: Yeah, but when we get famous, our fans will shorten it to FTTTEOTD.

*sigh*

Posted by Tim Riley Thu, 08 Sep 2005 16:05:00 GMT

I feel so safe now that, under the strong, almost paternal leadership of PM John Howard, we too can now join our western allies in throwing out "innocent until proven guilty" in the name of fighting a threat that has been more or less non-existent on Australian soil.

Motorcycle Meme

Ducati Monster
You scored 0 moxie, 1 zeal, and 6 pomp!
You're a bit of a snob, but otherwise well-adjusted.

Your bike is the Ducati Monster. Sexy. Powerful. Agile. Italian style in a badass matte black.

Of all the test takers, you are most likely to have been hoping for your result to indicate that your bike is a Harley. It isn't. Sorry. You show the potential to become a superior rider, and you need a bike that encourages and rewards your learning. The Harley will just hold you back, and you'll have nagging feelings that something is wrong.

The Suzuki SV series is also a good bet, but it wouldn't appeal to you. Far too Common.

(From p.l.o.a. Funny it should mention the SV series - I actually ride a 2004 SV650S)

Increasing my word power

Posted by triley Sun, 24 Jul 2005 16:24:00 GMT

Since I have been lax in commitment to post daily about things that I like, I have two things to share tonight.

Lately I have been starting to play Weboggle a fair bit. This is a web-based version of the word game in which the players must form words from adjoining letters in a four-by-four grid. Sometimes I play during lunch at work, or at the end of the day before I go home. This often attracts a crowd of people behind me calling out words to enter. I often end up being more of a typist than an active participant. However, with our combined powers, we have a few times come out as winners! That it is probably a victory of four or five people against individuals does little to diminish our cheers when we see the score table.

While I think it is difficult to say that boggle does a lot to expand my vocabulary, what it does well is help to develop pattern-matching skills and the ability to pull words out of my vocabulary. I am getting better at the game with practice, but I don't know if I will ever be able to match the prodigious talents of my friend Lauren.

Kitchenware Stores

Posted by triley Tue, 19 Jul 2005 16:30:00 GMT

I really like kitchenware stores. They exude a certain warmth and humanity that you don't find in other sorts of shops. I think it has to do with all the ceramic and stainless steel and the bittiness of all the different products that are laid out. Everything is useful, everything has a purpose. Walking into one of these stores, you can almost smell the enticing aromas of the many dishes that are to be made from the items inside.

Winter

Posted by triley Sun, 17 Jul 2005 16:44:00 GMT

Winter is a tough season. It's cold and wet and grey and I don't like it at all. I find that it is very easy to get down on yourself in winter. So, to counter winter's harsh cruelty, I am going to write once every day about something that I like. I will start tomorrow!
