So Qwerky

February 15th, 2016 // Tech // No Comments

I hate the name Qwerkywriter — much the same way I will take an immediate disliking to anyone who describes his or herself as “quirky” — but an aluminum-constructed keyboard that emulates the look, feel, and touch of a classic typewriter but that can connect to a computer or tablet via Bluetooth would be pretty cool to have.

On an entirely unrelated note, my birthday is a little under a month away…  *wink wink* *nudge nudge*

The Winnie the Pooh We Deserve

February 2nd, 2016 // Uncategorized // No Comments

Today at work was a little stressful, so when I left it was with a headache. Not a migraine, where I have to pop Vicodin like mints and flee to my dark Cave of Solitude and hope I either pass out or die. But the kind where I was able to skip going to the gym, grab dinner from Panera, and come home and watch a movie I’ve seen thirty times, all guilt-free. It wasn’t an ideal situation, of course, but sometimes it’s nice to have an excuse to be lazy.

I saw THE REVENANT over the weekend. It was very good, gorgeous to look at, and super fucking intense. The notorious bear scene, while expertly shot, was particularly hard to watch. I’m glad I saw the movie, and on a big screen, but I don’t think I’ll ever feel the need to see it again.

Well, today I was talking with a coworker about the movie, who shared similar feelings towards it. Later, he emailed me this:

I didn’t realize until now that the same person also made Winnie-the-Pooh-themed posters (Poohsters?) for all of this year’s Best Picture nominees. They’re all pretty great.
