andy: i knew i was missing something.
andy: welcome back.
andy: so, you're going to the baseball game, right?
amy: will your mom be there?
amy: come on, you can come up with a witty retort!
amy: you can do it!
amy: i believe in you!
andy: now you're just being mean.
andy: i haven't gone yet.
andy: porn or not porn?
andy: cast your vote.
amy: i mean, seriously? an "enchanted crab"?
amy: that sounds like something you catch after a one night stand with a fairy godmother. not something that makes you a "superb food witch"
andy: movies that do not feature a super-hero created by a nuclear accident or a wise-cracking ghost with a secret are automatically suspect.
(after discussing this)
amy: oh well
amy: sexism goes on.
andy: and it will go on until we get robots to review products.
andy: sexy shiny review robots.
amy: do i need to give you a moment alone with the review robots?
andy: ... no
andy: are you "loving" your pet to death?
andy: CNN headlines rule.
amy: i've seen craigslist ads like this
andy: yeah, that's just what i was thinking.
amy: except they usually end with sexual favors
andy: yup, that's the one.
andy: "customers who bough items like this also bought ..."
andy: how many pairs of rainboots does one human need?
amy: you need to accessorize!
amy: it's easier if you've just got multiple sets of galoshes
amy: yes, this is how women think.
andy: all of them.
amy: even some men.
amy: it's an overwhelming consciousness
amy: submit to it, mr. i-have-two-bikes
amy: or else you will be assimilated into the borg collective by force
andy: ok, first off, my bikes don't match my clothes. in fact, [coworker]'s opinion aside, my bikes have about 0 style.
andy: second, at some point in this conversation i began to wonder about the correlation between owning multiple pairs of galoshes and wanting a baby in your belly.
andy: i'm thinking they might be positively related in some way, which makes me giggle, because at some point when you have a baby you'll think back on this and want to kick my ass for pointing it out.
amy: cuteoverload posted this mantis specifically to highlight his poop.
andy: go internet.
andy: what i said about cuteoverload and anal fixation stands.
(making fun of Vista and the new voice-recognition capability...)
andy: You can say "How do I" followed by a task you want to perform with your computer. For example, "How do I change my desktop background?"
andy: How do I get a better computer?
andy: How do I level up?
amy: "How do I find your mom?"
amy: ohhhh snap
andy: i'm not sure i want the computer to do what i tell it to do.
amy: it ruins the surprise?
amy: doesn't windows already not do what you tell it to do?
andy: non-deterministic computing rocks.
amy: "don't phone home"
amy: "don't run IE"
amy: "don't suck"
andy: eh, it just obeys a subset of commands.
andy: "freeze up"
andy: "hog memory"
andy: "take forever to log in"
andy: managed expectations have gotten me this far.
