Winter is coming Click the banner for the first chapter of the Evil Fic. XD

Bonus: Bad Pun Miles is now on Tumblr. There are spoilers for the entirety of both series, I'm afraid. Also, soul-killing puns. SO MUCH SOUL DEATH AL WOULD FLIP.

My iPod alarm woke me up this morning, and it was on my six-year-old PowerBook, of which I am the third proud owner, that I saw the news.

I don't observe nearly as many passings here as perhaps I should, but this is a computer-based community, and everyone who owns a computer owes Steve Jobs a debt of gratitude. Petty PC/Mac battles aside, in turning Apple into an explosively productive market behemoth, he forced the competition to step up their game in order to keep pace. This was a human being of extraordinary brilliance – and not the kind who produces one magnum opus and then moves on; the kind who had a purely symbolic salary as CEO because he just liked building things, and he was amazing at it. I think we can all take some inspiration away from that: Steve Jobs gave us groundbreaking products because he wanted to make things, and he wanted to make things better. He was out to prove that ambitious creativity and revolutionary innovation were not just alive and well; they were the wave of the future. And he surfed that wave like a proper Californian.

My hat's off to you, Mr. Jobs. Thank you for everything.

For those of you to whose interests it is relevant…

Chris Colfer made the TIME 100. You know. Their annual list of the world's most influential and/or pretty people. (And his blurb was written by Dianna Agron.)

brb, flailing more—

My manager wants me to help with a survey. This morning, she suggested I play around with SurveyMonkey to figure out how it works. She should never have said such a thing.

If you're familiar with Monty Python and the Holy Grail, hopefully this amuses you a quarter as much as it amused me this morning immediately after coffee:


If you haven't seen the movie, don't click, because you will want to send me to the loony bin. XD

In other news, I have no other news. I'm procrastinating on the only thing I have to do, which is a project I don't really like, but that's so unsurprising I can't even express my lack of surprise.

I hope this gives some of you a well-deserved laugh. ♥
