Remember to Ski With Blender

So on the way home, Pandora played a song by Skeewiff called "Flanger Freak." Regardéz:

This being an awesome tune, I wanted to make a note of it and knew I wouldn't remember the name. As it was, I could barely hold onto it long enough to fire up Siri and give her the instruction: "Remember Skeewiff Flanger!"

With a completely straight face (or the android equivalent thereto), Siri replied, "Okay, I'll create a reminder to ski with blender."


Now I have a cartoon in my head of Comfort, skiing down the side of a mountain, holding a blender over her head like a trophy. Nice one, Siri.

Starbucks Moments: The Day Santa Liked My Muttonchops

On Monday, a man who I am pretty sure was Santa Claus in his civilian clothes came into the store looking flustered and somewhat lost, but upon seeing me (looking not too different from the icon for this post) immediately brightened up and said, "I love your facial hair!"

To which I replied with a thank you and proceeded to show him how the Starbucks smartphone app works because, being Santa, it's all still pretty new to him.

A woman also complimented my haircut-and-muttonchops combo tonight, saying that "It really worked." So apparently it does!

And now, back to prepping for my MFF flight. *kermitflails!*
