    Shit That Impresses You

    I know it''s way more fun to whine and bitch, but sometimes good things happen and should be given props.

    I took my laptop to get a new hard drive (purchased a year ago) installed yesterday and joked about it taking 15 minutes. The guy at Micro Center in Cambridge said, let me check with the technician and came back saying it would be ready in half an hour. I was expecting to be without the TGRz for a week... I was totally blown away.

    So I went to Tasty Burger to get lunch, where I struck up a conversation with the guy waiting next to me. Turns out, he was buying a bunch of extra burgers to hand out to various homeless people in Harvard Square. I was very impressed again... couple small things made me feel good about being human.

    I know there's more good shit out there.... right?

    I'm impressed that on this clown-car of stupid board, another clown keeps getting out of the Audi RS6 w/tdi.

    I'm impressed by creaky.


    I mean, it takes fucking staying power to be so unwaveringly miserable all the time. I'm not even mad I'm impressed!

    For 2015 Worth presents the "Joie de Vivre." Have you been reading creaky fossil and Hugh Conway posts all day on TGR coming away feeling like you're a sack of shit? Or perhaps you're tired of taking laps after every post? Well, it doesn't mean you can't still enjoy life, retard. So put the gun away, it's not your time to quit the game of life just yet--UPS just delivered your new skis. All "Joie de Vivre's" come pre-drilled with inserts to accept your bindings, because you would probably fuck up the mount, you stupid shit. Screw the bindings in, and you're ready to go ski. Worth is so confident these will put a smile on your face we guarantee 100% satisfaction or your money back. Just don't cross thread the screws you fucking fuck, otherwise we won't take them back.

    clockwork, WooDork starts from an assumption (grouchy, life-hating) and thus sees it everywhere, his metaphorical hammer seeking nails in every surface.

    you realize that projection shows us your weak points in your self-image, right?

    I'm impressed. a branding master of the image-bait (hence, a bait-er) catering to lovers of an "irony" which lacks irony, he says that I'm the hater. your corrosion of irony, your depreciation of the substantive, your boosting of the superficial: these things show a hollow man who hates himself and others.

    I got $20 off my dry cleaning bill. But I had to argue for it, so it's kind of canceled out.

    But $20 is $20 FTMFW!

    Jebus, you need meds, or more likely, a new cocktail mix because the current regimen is failing miserably!

    I don't hate the homeless in general (been there), but the ones that hang in Harvard Square are a special batch of fucking disgusting worthlessness.

    I watched an impressive amount of rain fall yesterday, but no snow well above pass level... depressive.

    The ridiculous, escalating, over-pricing of Kentucky bourbons over the past 5 years has been impressive.

    Same for Napa wines going back 15 years.
    I still call it The Jake.

    Oh no, you misread me I'm not taking offense at all I am just passively recognizing the amount of effort you put into being miserable about things in general and honestly have to respect it because it takes effort to be so committed in any endeavor. Do your thing my man, you're killing it out there and you have my full endorsement!

    Or he needs to switch to Ketamine Speedballs, which would be impressive although somewhat dated.

    I see your 3 seconds spent studying corpobot speechifying obfuscatory word-warping is paying off. all those words, and not a sensible idea in the mix. fuckin' a, that's impressive.
