Ok, that’s it: the next iPhone user to publish a 1-week review of their Nexus One that says exactly the same thing as all the others gets… A link from Gruber, I guess.
You Stay Classy, Collection Agencies
Call from debt collector: I owe money, and they want it. Failure to pay will result in legal action. “Can you pay anything today?” Nope. “I got paid literally yesterday, the money will be available tomorrow. I could make a payment tomorrow?” “No, you have until 5:30 to make a payment, or we’re going to have to go legal.” “You can’t wait one...

I’m going to get off here before you start talking again.– This is how I say goodnight to Heather, who deems “I need to sleep” as an appropriate time to launch into monologues that have been known to last up to 90 minutes. Women! Am I right?
Episode Whatever: Fuck
I’m not really sure what episode I’d characterise this immigration saga as being at. I guess if you take every roadblock as an end of episode cliffhanger, we’re probably well into season two.

“Let’s see here, eight, fifteen, sixt—” “Richard.” “What?” “Lend me ten pounds.” I let out an imperceptible sigh, laid down my pen, and began. “Listen, you don’t get anything for free. You have to work for what you want, you have to earn it. I’m not always going to be around to lend you money, you have to learn...
The Do - “Playground Hustle (kidam version)” So awesome.
Me: Especially if it turns out to be a hung parliament
BBC’s election coverage started about 50 minutes before they even expect to have a single confirmed result. Can’t wait to see what bullshit they fill that time with. Also really looking forward to seeing virtual Downing Street again to help me visualize all these difficult numbers!
Posterous silently changes all external links on... →
Wow. This is hilarious. Posterous — you know, the Tumblr-killer — has been silently fudging with links on all Posterous blogs for 4 months injecting affiliate code into them to generate revenue. This guy caught on, posted it on Hacker News, and got this response from a co-founder: Admittedly, we should have announced this on our blog. This was definitely an oversight on our part....
