things I see and must speak on, son!
“data entry hypnosis”
“Data entry hypnosis” is an experience during which a person, while entering information into a database, seemingly loses track of time and even the information they’re entering but all the while entering the information correctly. It’s similar/identical to the experience of Highway Hypnosis.
About the CreativeJamie.com Dictionary:
The CreativeJamie.com Dictionary is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time, but never got around to until now. I had a writing college in class during which one assignment challenged us to make up our own words. I sucked at it (hard), but I loved the idea, so I’m giving it a go now.
As you may have noticed, it’s snowing on the website. I can turn this on or off, but I can’t modify it in any other way, which is a drag, because I feel it’s falling too fast. (I’d also prefer it blew in front of the background but behind the content… but whatever.) The point is, should the snow stay or go? (For the month of December, that is.) VOTE NOW!

It’s not enough to drink beer – you have to make a game of it. It’s required, apparently. I’ve seen people play beer pong and quarters, but there’s another level to this drinking games phenomenon. Read the rest of this entry
I just don’t get why we have so many socks without a mate. There must be 50 left after The Great Sunday Sock Pairing of 2014, which is crazy.

Not that this helps the situation any, but I like to pretend I’ve exercised sovereignty over the material world.
Where is it that socks go? Do the Underpants Gnomes have cousins?
New York Times puts 'extreme' in quotes in reference to Buffalo snowfall, Mountain Dew enthusiasts cry foul
In the last twenty years or so, the word ‘extreme’ has been bandied about with reckless abandon. Its overuse is well chronicled in silly product commercials, the X Games and so on. However, this doesn’t mean that there’s no longer a relevant use for the word. Even people who slug back sugary drinks while skateboarding half pipes and simultaneously exhibiting Michael Jordan esque tongue gestures would probably agree that several feet of snow on your front lawn is cause for dropping the quotes. It’s a life threatening amount of snow – it’s not Dr. Evil talking about using lasers to cause global warming…
Hmm – synergy?
