That Working Respect

Return of the spam haiku (This time in TECHNICOLOR!).

That working respect
Is sneaky; nothing can fix
Trusted privacy.

Side note: Dr. Steve knows me so well. I mean, those sneaky hormones ARE the reason I’ve gained weight. Not, you know, lack of exercise and the sinfully delicious barbecue restaurant within walking distance of my house. That stuff is completely okay.

Touché, AARP

I recently received an AARP card in the mail, which is absolutely ridiculous because I am NOT EVEN 25. Needless to say, AARP is on my shit list.

Which is why this promoted tweet in my twitter feed struck a sore spot.

What am I doing to make AARP think that I am in their age bracket?!?

As my own brand of Big M Little Organ Justice, I decided to be a  shit head and reply to them with my favorite caregiver film.

Hey, I thought it was funny.

Not two minutes later, I received a new follower on Twitter.

Clearly you have never seen Misery.

Touché, AARP. You win this round.

A Cool Kid’s Guide to Nerdy Things

Are you tired of your nerdy friends talking about things that you’re just not into? Do you want to feel in the know without having to actually know anything?

We’re here to help.

Doctor Who/Torchwood

A time traveling alien (Time Lord) who travels through space and time in his space ship (TARDIS), bringing along companions for funsies. Doctor Who has been on for 50 years, with 11 different actors playing the Doctor.

Speak Nerd: TARDIS, mad man with a box, weeping angels, Don’t blink!, Time Lord, Dalek, sonic screwdriver, Captain Jack, Nine, Ten, Eleven, Who’s your Doctor?, Are you my mummy?

The Guild

Originating as a web series, each season is only about 45 minutes long. Birthed from the mind of Felicia Day, The Guild follows a group of people who play a World of Warcraft-esque game, and have never met (until the first season). Even if you’re not into intense online games, this show is worth it to watch Clara, because she says the most awesomely ridiculous things.

Speak Nerd: Playing The Game, Codex, Zaboo, Vork, Clara cracks me up, Knights of Good

Walking Dead

Based on a comic book, this is a popular show that has glamorized zombies and added action and gore to a basic soap opera format, making it acceptable to menfolk.

Speak Nerd: Walkers, Darryl Dixon, Ricktatorship, I’m glad Laurie died

conchords

Flight of the Conchords

Great for music nerds, Flight of the Conchords features a two-man band from New Zealand (not Australia) as they try to make it big in New York. Each episode features an original song.

Speak Nerd: It’s Business s Time, I’m not crying, Alfie the Racist Dragon

Game of Thrones

Originating in a book too nerdy for most people to get through, as it belongs in the fantasy section of your local library, HBO made it popular by adding boobs. It follows several people as they strive for ownership of the Seven Kingdoms, for whatever reason: revenge, thinking it’s their birth right, revenge, etc.

Speak Nerd: Joffrey is a dick, direwolf, George R. R. Martin, the last dragon, Dothraki, The Imp

Firefly
firefly

A brainchild of Joss Whedon, Firefly lasted one season, and Serenity was the wrap up movie that came later. In a futuristic world where only Asian and Western American cultures survived, Firefly follows the crew of the Firefly as they smuggle and try to stay afloat and under the radar of the government (the Alliance)

Speak Nerd: Shiny, Captain, I am a leaf on the wind, Alliance, Browncoats, Miranda, Reavers, curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal, anything in Chinese

Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog

Birthed during the writer’s strike, Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog began as webisodes, and feature Nathan Fillion, Felicia Day, and the ever-amorous Neil Patrick Harris as characters in a world of superheroes and villains, all while singing. It’s great fun.

Speak Nerd: Bad Horse (the Thoroughbred of Sin), the Hammer is my penis, we do the weird stuff, Captain Hammer, Dr. Horrible, Bait and Switch

I Will Judge You for Poor Grammar

While getting gas at my local station this morning, I was unfortunate enough to have notice this message. Luckily, I was able to snap a photo before it went away. Evidence that I am not a snob, and grammar errors are awful in public places.

Are/Our

Which means that I can’t stop thinking of this:

I don't want to live on this planet anymore

Inspirational Quotes from the Office

Let it be known that I actually work with highly intelligent people. Everyone has a college degree, and many people that I work with have their master’s or doctorate in their field.

And yet, in a meeting at work today, a psychologist and Ph. D. said the following phrase.

Some things take two days. Like weekends.

My work is awesome.

Later on that day, after traveling to meetings and being stuck in a car for several hours, we decided to optimize on those words of wisdom.

Some things take two hands. Like burrito supremes.

Yes. Yes. Forever yes.
