Commuter train delayed some godawful while, caught the bus instead #publictransportwhine

obsessively re-listening the songs I missed while iTunes was on during lunch

3 bugzilla queues to check is at least one too many

Waiting for the bus, bored by the TWIP photo podcast

I can’t believe I haven’t known about irssi’s Alt-a “switch to latest channel with activity” key combo. Lifesaver!

Be seen dead in them outside though - mutton dressed as lamb

boring billboards galore

I love it how Americans say "pick up" when they mean "buy a $3,000 DSRL". So casual!

Rolling into Centralen

Resolved: DECLINED

Feck it’s getting dark early

here’s hoping the new Canon 5D2 will lead to a flood of used Nikon gear as the switchers switch back!
