A couple months ago, we decided we wanted the 'Invader Zim' DVDs, and hit the local Suncoast, where they had only volumes 1 and 3. Now, we're in there enough that the manager knows us by name, so I went to chat with her, asking if they had volume 2 in storage. No, they don't, and we got to talking. Turns out the box set with all three DVDs and a bonus disc is coming soon (nice to note: if you already have them, fret not, they also sell just the empty case with the bonus disc, so you can still join the fun without a huge amount of cash!). Anyway, we decided to abstain from the DVDs that day, and go ahead and preorder the whole set, which was due in yesterday. Sure enough, I got the call, and Dianna picked it up on her way home. When she got here, she mentioned that there was a price difference, and that it was actually less then half the cost of the original payment, so we got cash back....turns out this was because they got us the empty case with the bonus disc. *sigh* We went back and gave it back, repaid our cash, and the full set should be in next week (I guess there was a delay on them or something).
Speaking of human-hating, get this: According to this article, Aubrey de Grey, a Cambridge researcher in aging and rejuvenation (who needs a serious talking-to about his beard), believes that, in 25 years, technology and genome work will have gone far enough that people could start living 1,000-year lifetimes. Christ, kill me when that starts to happen, PLEASE. These people suck hard enough when they live 77 years. I'm serious, I want no part of it.
This too: A presidential aide revealed Bush's iPod playlist. Why the FUCK would anyone give a rotting rat's ass? (Answer: because this aide is looking for a few bucks, and couldn't find anything more revealing.) Fuckin' Hell, let the man listen to whatever he wants while he bikes, I couldn't care less. What REALLY gets me is that anyone would ANALYZE this playlist; one reporter noted: "No black artists, no gay artists, no world music, only one woman, no genre less than 25 years old, and no Beatles." Well, fuck-a-doodle-doo. Big whoop.
On the flipside, I want two of these purses for Dianna and Jessica. Way cool.
Hey, dig the figure Di got me yesterday:
I chose the different left hand, so he's brandishing his pistol. Also came with a bag of chicken and the bathroom key/mummified hand.
