Today, as I sat down to throw some lunch down my throat, I saw #myFirstCar go by on Twitter. Naturally I made a jokey post about it on Facebook and on the train ride home it occurred to me I should probably expand because a lot of people might not understand the inherent dangers of playing such an innocuous seeming little game.
That's right, folks, you heard me: As awesome as it is to be able cram two racks of servers into a few U, sometimes virtual environments just don't cut the mustard. And sometimes, they're just not that cool.
That's right, John Cusack, after many years and many more enjoyable movies and memorable characters, your latest cinematic outing severely disappointed me. You were the king of awesome until @theguelphgirl made me watch Hot Tub Time Machine.
So it was a banner today in the old Powell/McEwan household. What started off looking like just another Monday soon took a turn for the awesome as I ended the day gaining not just one, but two new pets.
