• Yo La Tengo will be performing on tonight's season finale of Gilmore. Hmmm, what will happen? Either Poop (Luke) and Lorelei will break up or get married/elope, whatever. Last season brought such high hopes, this season makes me relieved that next season will be the last. On the tv tip, we watched last week's episode of the Office last night and it made me guffaw. Dwight's complaints against Jim had me in stitches. I'm cracking up just thinking of the shenanegins with the photo ID.

• I got two wrong numbers today. I get them quite often come to think of it. The first one today really irked me. The woman asked for Joanie or whomever, and I told her she had the wrong number. But she still didn't believe me, so she repeated the phone number she was trying to call, which was basically my number, except for one difference. I told her so and instead of saying, oops, sorry, she just hung up on me. I thought it was very rude, and sadly, it does seem to be the norm.

• My Tiny Showcase order finally showed up. The kind folks at The Human Empire sent me a couple shirts the other day too. I know have too many t-shirts, but these are AWESOME.

This makes me very happy because I am going stircrazy at home.

I am always so polite to people when I dial the wrong number. I am always so apologetic but most everyone else is pretty rude either receiving the wrong number or dialing it.

Sorry about The Gilmore Girls

Saw that Office episode and it cracked me up too it reminded me of a recent prank I pulled at school which I should blog about

Both of the tees are cute but the yellow tee is cuter.

Can you tell I haven't spoken to anyone today:)

Wrong numbers: if someone hangs up on me I call them right back and say "there was no need to be so rude, was there?". Then they usually hang up again, but its like always using a crosswalk: someone has to do it.

There will be some choice t-shirt options in Bar Harbor and environs, including Dan Dan the T-Shirt Man's store in the neighboring town of Ellsworth. There are even pre-ironic ones at the Irving gas station on Cottage Street- "04609" a la "90210" is a good one to start with.

That totally burns my ass when wrong numbers do that! Do they have no appreciation for the fact that they've just taken away 20 seconds of your life that you'll never get back?!?! There's a special place in hell for them.

Oda has the same dog shirt.
