My favorite thing to do when somebody’s upset is to tell them to “calm down.”

Please note: this usually doesn’t do me any favors. Nor does it make the other person relax. Usually the opposite.

Cereal AWOLs

tcr! · Oct 28, 2017 at 11:54 am

Cereal AWOLs

So when I’m finishing off a box of cereal there’s always a few AWOLs left in the box.

Do you guys finish them off or nah? Does it depend on the make and model?

For the flake and loop varieties I empty it all including the cereal dust. Then I use a spoon to mix the dust in with the solid parts in my bowl.

I don’t like cereal, so the comment about eating cereal dust sounds particularly gross.

Sometimes Maggie will put an empty box of cereal back in the cupboard. That’s the worst.

Social grace at the ATM drive-through

tcr! · Oct 28, 2017 at 10:16 am

Audio (MP3): 20171028 - Social grace at the ATM drive-through

Please note local residents: ATM drive-throughs are one way. You should not back up for any reason. Think of the ATM lane to be like a waterslide. You should only go down, never up. If you try to swim or climb back up le slide, chances are you’ll destroy the very fabric that holds our universe together. Yes, I’m talking to you lady at the BMO by Blue Goose.

Also, please resist the urge to get out of your car. Or truck. Or whatever you’re in to.

In conclusion: if you like to do your banking on foot and/or while utilizing both the backwards and the forwards of your automobile, just go inside. You’ll get to do both.

You’ll even have the option to enjoy a Dum Dum. Instead of being one. 🍭

CamelCase vs. lower case

tcr! · Oct 27, 2017 at 10:25 am

In C/C++, method names should be capitalized and use CamelCase. (source)

…and…

In JavaScript, functions should use camelCase but should not capitalize the first letter. (source)

I will only use lower case and the underscore for word boundaries. And 4 stop tabs. For all code. JavaScript, PHP, MySQL, HTML, CSS, whatever. Consistency, folks.

In other news…

if ($view_data['icd_code_1_86001'] == '') {
  $view_data['icd_code_1_86001'] = '';
}

if ($view_data['icd_code_2_86001'] == '') {
  $view_data['icd_code_2_86001'] = '';
}

if ($view_data['icd_code_3_86001'] == '') {
  $view_data['icd_code_3_86001'] = '';
}

if ($view_data['icd_code_1_86003'] == '') {
  $view_data['icd_code_1_86003'] = '';
}

if ($view_data['icd_code_2_86003'] == '') {
  $view_data['icd_code_2_86003'] = '';
}

if ($view_data['icd_code_3_86003'] == '') {
  $view_data['icd_code_3_86003'] = '';
}

Good thing that all the icd_code variables are checked for empty and then set to empty. If they’re empty.

By their own rules, should it not be spelled javaScript?

YES! I will be sure to mention that if it ever comes up.

In related news, I went to edit their page to correct the JavaScript spelling (similar to how I correct articles on Wikipedia) but I was stopped at the front door. 🙄

More knob twists

tcr! · Oct 27, 2017 at 10:03 am

Audio (MP3): 20171027 - More knob twists

I’m in the private, single person work restroom. Somebody tries the door knob. It refuses because I’m not an animal and therefore lock the door.

Again, with the twisting. I scowl at the door. More knob twists. This time as if brute force will unlock the door. I’m annoyed now.

Three seconds pass. The knob twists yet again. I call out forcefully, angrily… “dude, I’m taking a shit.”

I don’t like talking to people in public but sometimes ya got to.

While dining out last night I happened upon this restroom. Featuring additional seating.

Maybe the knob twister above was expecting he could just come in and wait for his turn.

Companionship is losing ground. The naysayers are getting verbal and providing examples.

The Bruno Marc Oxford boots

tcr! · Oct 26, 2017 at 6:32 pm

Bruno Marc Oxford boots

I only wear my fancy shoes on special occasions, such as tonight’s Fall Choral Concert that Maggie will be singing in.

Now I’ll move the camera to eye level.

Empty seats to my left…
Empty seats to my left

Empty seats to my right…
Empty seats to my right

I got the best seat in the house!

In other news… Maggie let me know it’s not okay to call other drivers in the school parking lot “tator tot.”

Ooh, on Facebook I couldn’t see that they were boots. They got zippers and everything!

Why is everyone else sitting up front? Are they in trouble with the teacher?

Yep, laces and zippers!! 🎉 👞

And it wasn’t so much as everyone was sitting up front. It’s more that I was sitting way in back… 😉

Super Target has Blue Diamonds

tcr! · Oct 26, 2017 at 4:08 pm

Audio (MP3): 20171026 - Super Target has Blue Diamonds

One time my brother ate a whole bag of walnuts. And my mom was furious. She still talks about it to this day even though said feeding happened sometime in the 80s. Apparently the walnuts were a gift to my mom from my grandpa during one of his nation-wide adventures. I think they came from out west but nobody knows for sure since he was known to disappear for weeks on end during his “fishing trips.”

One time grandpa bought a whole everglade forest or something in Florida. On a whim. I had always hoped to see it someday, to see if the elusive feathered-bigfoot-alligator was a real thing. But that never happened because the older I got, the less swamp sounded like fun.

I see I’ve drifted off on a tangent. The above paragraph is neither here nor there to this post. It is not in a fox. It is not in a box. It is not in a boat. It is not in a moat.

Anyways, my mom had planned to make these nutted brownies[1] with the supposedly delicious western walnuts. Alas, she was forced to make brownies sans nuts. And seriously, chances are 92% that if I (or anyone else) ever mention walnuts to her, even in the casualest of conversations, her face will still flush with the fury of a baker betrayed.

Now then… I would like to make restitution on behalf of my walnut-eating brother[2] (and his 80s afro) to my mom and get her a new bag of walnuts. No, I don’t have to do this but I’m sure my mom’s face would also flush if she ever knew about one of the times I [redacted]. Therefore I’ve taken it upon myself to try and fix this little piece of history.

Will it work, beloved and devoted readers?

Well, that’s where you come in: where is the best place to get the best walnuts around town? I’m not looking for the best price, I’m looking for the best nut. Chopped or otherwise. Not ground though. Who the hell can do anything with ground walnuts this late in the season? Certainly not me. And not more than a pound. I’m not stalking up for seed apocalypse here.

Also, be aware: any answers that start with “Super Target has Blue Diamonds” will be publicly mocked.

  1. Is that what you call them? Nutted brownies? Or brownies with nuts? You pick.

  2. You maybe asking yourself why he ate a whole bag of walnuts. I wondered myself when I was but a boy. The only thing I can come up with is that he smoked one of his doobies and that put the hunger in bones.

She insists on laying on me even though there’s tons of space. And then when I tell her to go sleep in her own bed she gives me this look.
