Oh my goodness too funny.

Patrick Stewart… you are the man.

new low reached in commercial advertising

This is the worst commercial that Russell Oliver has made to date, I think. He has sunk to new lows.

This is absolutely BRILLIANT!

garfield minus garfield

Who would have guessed that when you remove Garfield from the Garfield comic strips, the result is an even better comic about schizophrenia, bipolor disorder, and the empty desperation of modern life? Friends, meet Jon Arbuckle.

all i want for Christmas

anyone can feel free to get me this for Christmas, I won’t mind. 🙂

I’m without shame.


The last time I bought paper, George Bush was the president, Brian Mulroney was PM, and I had a LaserWriter LS to go with my wicked Mac LCII. Unable to pass up the deal of buying a case of paper (it’s so much cheaper!) instead of just one or two packs of 500 sheets, I have as a result kept this case of paper like my own personal albatross. I’ve moved it from my parent’s house to our first rental place, to the condo, to our current house. Each time we moved I couldn’t believe that I still had paper left. I finished an undergrad, a techincal program, and a Masters without finishing that case of paper. (I guess I need to write longer papers… or more drafts…)

So this time, I got wise. Instead of buying a case of paper, I bought half a case. That’s 5 reams of 500, in case you’re wondering.

how deep the rabbit hole goes

reads, books & laughs

I stole my wife’s library book and read it on the subway today. It’s a book by Lynne Truss, “Eats, Shoots & Leaves”. So funny. Of course I would think so, seeing as I joined the “I judge you when you use poor grammar” group on facebook without any hesitation. Truss’s book is about punctutaion, and its history and misuse. Recommended if you’re into slightly dry English humour, and things like punctuation.

As an Asian person born in Canada, I always shake my head when I read restaurant menus or grocery item descriptions, because invariably there will be a typo or grammatical construction so horrifying that it almost makes me ashamed to be Asian. Almost. In rare cases, these non-sensical blunders can also be a selling point, as demonstrated by our recent purchase of a package of rice noodles bearing the slogan, “The new type noodle: Thick * Slick * Bright Taste”. The description reads, “Each noodles is a stylish masterpiece. It is for people who want excitement in their noodles. Enjoy nice time by specially fine tastes.” Wow. We had to buy it for the packaging alone.
