Saddest day ever

Today I would like to take a few minutes and tell you about a friend of mine that passed away today.  My friends name is the Remington PRO1500XL and it has been my trusty hairdryer for the past 15 or so years, probably longer.  It has traveled to about 8 cities and 3 countries with me over the years and has never let me down.  And today it finally lay down and died.  Fucking switch broke!  Gave me a nice burning smell too.  So tomorrow I have to go buy a new one.  Thankfully I cut my hair last week so its short and doesnt really need one of these at the moment.  But I will take a look and see what they have.

I also finally saw Batman 3 yesterday.  Not too bad.  I preferred Dark Knight, which is my favourite, and Batman Begins just a little under it.  Third one was good, but I felt it needed to do a few things differently.   No surprise, Banes voice was hard to understand half the time thanks to my cinemas bullshit speakers that people seem to enjoy here.  And of course the shit screen.  I'd watched the previous 2 just before going so I could be fresh with the full story since they're all tied together, and seeing the scene at the start of the third film which was at the ending of the second one, made the picture quality really jump out at me.  Bluray vs fucking SD on a large screen.  Plus I recall not being able to understand Batman in most of the second film.  At least my sound system was worth the money.  I understood every word.  Thats what you get for not having enough clarity you bullshit organization.  And then you dare to charge us $18.  Good thing I found out my phone provider has $10 tickets for their members.  Score!

Also, my sadness..  Goodbye old friend  :(


  1. Aww, poor hairdryer.../insert empathetic story here

    Better than it bursting into flames. ...then again, you're Con.

  2. 15 years is one hell of a long time for something like that to work without breaking down. I can see why you'd feel sad laying it down. I had like 7 hairdryers during the 20 years of my life and all them died to the point that I just can't be bothered to buy another. I suck at keeping things in shape =P.
