    Hanging with the Dalai Lama
    Get away from all the drama
    Got here riding on a llama
    But I'm blissed out now and calmer
    Eating treats from Fannie Farmer
    Stuck here in your diorama
    I'm a cute lil guy, a charmer
    But you fuck around with Karma
    I will start a four-alarmer
    And before them fools respond, I
    Promise you you'll be a goner

    Every time I see the word “Botswana” Cyndi Lauper’s “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” starts playing in my head, except with Botswana subbed in for the “They just wanna, they just wanna” part.

    So more a random occurrence as opposed to a random thought, but a random thought caused it so...

    So was really bored tonight and saw on khan academy that you could do SAT tests....and I figured "hey...I haven't done any of this since grunge was a thing. Let's get a laugh."

    So I did it. Expected to get a lousy mark.

    Ended up with a 1280. That's goodish right?

    I want a smiley with a top hat and a monocle that drops off as his expression changes to one of utter shock.

    I had a banana that had a hint of pear to it. I thought all the bananas were supposed to be clones of each other. Why is this one tasting like a pear?

    I don't mean to brag, guys, but I think Netflix asked me out on a date tonight. Here's what the email I just got said:

    Netflix tonight?
    Pretty direct. No other way to read that. I'm probably just gonna leave them hanging and not respond, but it's nice to be asked.

    My favorite repeated ad spam line is "your time is running out" because nothing makes me want to buy a product like my own mortality.

    I think you need more details - ask when they want you to come over.

    When I left DirecTV a few months ago (after, like, 12 years) the rep on the phone kept throwing great offers at me to keep me signed on. When they finally got to their "best" offer and I still declined, the tone turned darker and then the rep started telling me I would never be offered something like this again if I left and that basically I would be a DirecTV outcast, forced to pay an exorbitant monthly amount to rejoin the family. It sounded so dumb I don't even think she really was listening to herself.

    I said, "Are you firing me as a customer?? Because it sounds like you are telling me you're going to make it very difficult for me to justify the re-entry cost if I ever choose to come back. Like, don't let the door hit you on the way out, meat!"

    She had to back-peddle and tell me no, not at all, they just reserve the best prices for existing customers and I would no longer be considered an existing customer.

    "Oh, so I'd qualify for one of those 'only for new customers" great deals, right?" Oh yeah, I flipped her. She was putty in my hands.

    Such ingratitude, after all the times I saved your life.
