Microsoft Maps

OK, I’m a big Google Maps fan but I think this map service beats all. http://local.live.com It has live traffic in Seattle, which wouldn’t be all that cool in itself, but it also contains a birdseye view of the maps, which is about 115% better than a head down satellite view, in my opinion.

Silly Putty

So, I thought I was really clever when I bought some Think Geek branded Silly Putty. It turns out, not so. I was playing with it at work while procrastinating on some writing I was going to do, when the urge struck to use the bathroom. Not thinking, I walked in the bathroom with my “Alien Ooze” glow in the dark Smart Mass. When I reached the urinal, I realized I had no good place to put the Silly Putty, so I just tucked it between my arm and my chest. After I finished , flushed and washed my hands, I reached in my armpit to grab the “ball” and it was stuck to my shirt! So now, like a champ, I walk back into the office with silly putty in my armpit, trying to act casual, like this happens every day. My coworkers are probably wondering now why I was picking at my armpit, like I am some orangutan, trying to remove the stubborn putty which had bonded to my shirt due to the inordinate heat (it was 80 today in Seattle). It took several applications of “Goo Gone” to get rid of the Silly Putty. Pretty smart, eh?
