Let’s play Mega Man 10

First thing’s first, here’s the completed four hour playlist:

And here’s a shot of tonight’s dinner:

Homemade ramen, bitches!

Don’t worry, someone already made fun of me for eating my noodles with a fork. They were all, “What’s the matter, Brickroad? Don’t know how to use chopsticks?”

And I was all, “Why […]

Melts In Your Mouth

My first thought was that maybe some M&M colors are just more common than others. Like, perhaps there is some technical reason why the yellow M&M machine suffers more downtime than the blue M&M machine.

Then I figured that was nonsense, and that the color breakdown in my bag was a strange, but not […]


It’s that time again, boys and girls, to combine the wonder of holiday desserts with the hilarity of shitty photography. Buckeyes are candies consisting of peanut butter, powdered sugar, and chocolate. They are easy to make and difficult to screw up, and one batch of ingredients makes enough for pretty much everyone you know. I […]

Brickroad Destroys A Pumpkin: A Thanksgiving Miracle

Pumpkins are giant orange fruit/vegetable things that serve precisely two purposes: to be carved into scary faces on Halloween, and to be consumed as desserts on Thanksgiving. If you ever see anyone doing anything else with a pumpkin, you should alert the local authorities immediately.

The sad truth, though, is that most people don’t know […]

Guess That Screenshot

So here’s a cute little Flash game where you can test your encyclopedic knowledge of video game screenshots: Geek Mind. The premise is simple: you see a screenshot from a video game, and you type what game it is. Get it right and you get points.

The trouble with it is that if you’re even […]

You fail ice cream forever.

Sorry, I had too much LP work to do to be able to write a real post for today. You’ll be delighted to know, though, that in the course of my work I got mad at ice cream.

You’d think a bowl of delicious vanilla ice cream would be just the thing to take one’s […]

La Choy Chicken Chow Mein

Peanut and I both love to cook, but we also both love to eat, and sometimes we want to do the latter without going to all the trouble of the former. I’m sure we’d spend an hour or more preparing a fresh, lovely supper every night if we could, but since we work full-time jobs […]

Another Three Unrelated Things

1) We spent several hours last night playing Punch Out!! for Nintendo Wii. This game is so, so fun but also so, so hard. It reminded me of when I was a kid. I used to have access to a wide variety of NES games, and there was one class of games which, while fun, […]

I can’t be the first person who has thought of this.

I went to make a grilled cheese sandwich, but didn’t have any soft butter. Now, the Thing To Do in this situation is let the butter sit out for a little while in the butter dish so it gets nice and soft. But that kind of defeats the whole purpose of a grilled cheese sandwich, […]

File this one under “isn’t that common sense?”

Wasn’t this kind of the point of having triangular cheese in the first place? I guess I always assumed they were supposed to be doing things this way and were just lazy.

I would love to see the complaint letters Subway received that lead to this executive decision. I’ll bet my pension at least […]
