The things people say.

Came across this site the other day - pages and pages of funny and weird things overheard in New York. Very easy to waste hours here but very entertaining.

Personal highlight -

Mom: ...and you have to hold my hand before we go out into the street.
Little girl: Best fucking advice ever.

And the beg-athon continues

Last day of Radiothon (thank God) - while it's nice to have something to break up the routine, it kind of gets a little painful when you pitch pitch pitch for people to support the station and consistently get very little. (Big thanks to the people who did subscribe during Monday and Tuesday Sunsets last week, by the way)

Anyways, it is a worthy cause and it is important to do your bit, so onwards and upwards I guess.

Nifty Flash animation

If you have ever used Flash (or even a computer I guess), you should find this Flash centred cartoon pretty funny. It is all about the battle between a Flash animator and his creation. Kudos to Alan Becker for this one.
