Where's Nate?

living large in the four-oh-eight. wicked large.


santa online

so do it. add "santa claus" to your AIM or iChat list. and then proceed to spew a stream of four letter words in his direction. it's a guaranteed lump of coal in your stocking. and, in this economy, that adds up to a merry christmas. go santa!


it's all downhill from here

heading into the big holiday week. which means it should be quiet at work as people get ready to leave for the break. thank goodness.

i get stuck in routines. i like to hit up my email late night while i crank the toonage. this explains the title.

earlier this evening i was watchin' the tube and heard a great song on a promo for mtv2. after some quick google action, i realized that the tune was "all downhill from here" by new found glory. so i dialed up itunes, searched for the song, dropped my ninety-nine cents, and loaded it to my ipod. this is way, way too easy. and way, way too brilliant.


'tis the season

it's that time of year again. 'tis the season to spread your holiday cheer. to deck your house from head to toe in holiday lights. and, in the case of every other house in campbell, to erect giant inflatable snowmen in the front lawn.

'tis the season to buy an artificial tree and cram dozens of gifts beneath it. 'tis the season to kill off that real tree you saved by buying an artifical tree by wrapping those dozens of gifts in yard after yard of coated paper.

'tis the season to draft yet another form letter to share generic news with friends and family. 'tis the season to run the overworked postal carrier ragged by delivering tons and tons of similar form letters to everyone on your list. 'tis the season to bring truth to the "six degrees of separation" law.

'tis the season to celebrate with your co-workers by regifting that crappy white elephant gift you received from the guy who got laid off in Q2.

so spread the holiday cheer. 'tis the season to show your family members how much you love them. 'tis the season to bask in the artificial glow from your artificial tree.

happy holidays (i guess)!


yale 1, harvard 0

score one for the yalies, who pulled this prank at The Game.

so harvard finished 10-0 for the second time in school history. who cares? this brilliant prank is what people will talk about for years to come.


i have a ladder in my living room

yesterday was my birthday. i spent it in austin on business. and i had the opportunity to celebrate with my good friend, norm, and my bro and his girlfriend (the online bed-selling enterpreneurs). but i digress.

i'm a really good hinter. for the last few months, i have wanted a step ladder for the house. so imagine my surprise when i returned home to find that my wife and my puppy had given me a brand new step ladder, some grilling utensils, and a running shirt. bitchin'!

can't wait to break in the ladder this weekend when i put up our holiday lights.
