commented on Restaurant Offers Discount If You Shut Your Goddamned Phone Off
Last month I was sitting at a table, waiting for a friend to meet me for happy hour at a downtown hotel lounge. When a cell phone rang at a nearby table of business dudes, the phones owner excuses himself and walks a polite distant away from his party to take the call, *standing directly behind me.* So close that at one point he leans his elbow on the back of my chair. WTF is wrong with some people.
Ok, rant over. I feel so much better.

Do they have a film review category? Because Lindy should have won that for SATC II.
Also, trolls, I dare you to read Jenny Lawson's Let's Pretend This Never Happened without laughing out loud.

Unrelated to Ulysses but apropos of books and maps, if you're a fan of Game of Thrones, book or series, you should check out this interactive map:
It controls for spoilers by book chapter or series episode, and you can track specific characters or groups. So, if you're a GOT fan, prepare to not get any work done for the rest of the day.
