@geehoneybee Ouch. I’m not having any troubles like that, but I suppose it helps that my library is a fraction of that size. Only 3500 songs
@geehoneybee What’s not working for you?
@JimmySlims And I’ve got a nice… um… rack?
@geehoneybee Settings > Store > Use Cellular Data
@geehoneybee FYI that’s a setting; you can choose to let it download over 3G.
@Gartenberg Tried Downcast? I’d argue it’s better.
@jsnell I find Downcast more intuitive and feature complete than Instacast, and it has playlist support. It seems to get overlooked.
You know it’s time for a TV to go when you’re happy to be rid of it even when you don’t have a replacement ready to go.
@jen_robbins Yeah, it’s definitely a step backwards. I still have old Gmail on my work account and the difference is really noticeable.
@geehoneybee You around, interested in a visitor to the MC? Fran’s crashing hard and I’m still awake.
@geehoneybee What’d you get? Was it worth it?
@danfrakes That’s amazing. My kids (and I) would love those! Very cool.
@danfrakes Those look amazing. What are they?
This guy @fart is retweeting all the spoiled brats that didn’t get what they wanted.
The entitled dregs of society. Nice work, parents.

@kevinrose GoDaddy helped craft SOPA, and are folding on it due only to intense public pressure. Tons of other reason to avoid them. Tons.
@geehoneybee Thnaks for the tip! Cheres, Jaosn
I miss the old Pointcast push app. I’m probably the only one.
@lexfri Only if you support blatant sexism and hunting of elephants. :-/
@gvmcmillan Merry Christmas!
The number of “it’s not too late” promotional emails in my inbox this morning, many.
The effectiveness of them all? Zero. Happy Holidays!
Me: Oh no! It might be too late to waste my time on a random hotel survey!
Oh wait, I’m not brain damaged. But their PR co. might be.
…”If you have not yet completed the survey, I want to let you know it is not too late to participate.”
“We recently sent you an e-mail inviting you to participate in an on-line survey about –––.”…
Super fast commute this morning: +1
Easy to get a good parking spot at work: +1
Not having the sense to take a holiday day today: -100,000
And with that, Merry Christmas everyone!
If ‘Merry Christmas’ offends you, it might be worth noticing that the reason you’re so unhappy is that you’re choosing to be.
Choosing to take offense to season’s greetings is insane.
If I say “Merry Christmas” to you, it means I genuinely want you to be happy and healthy. That’s all. Relax. Have some eggnog or something.
Railing against Christmas is, for the most part, taking a negative stance on a cultural touchstone and reminder to be kind to each other.
I find it useful to follow people with whom I don’t always or even often agree, but some (like Derek Powazek) make it harder than others.
@TyLabine I have a Naked Instruments “Man-chine”, but I’m pretty sure that’s not what you’re looking for.
You can have it if you want.
I’ve been thinking “I should take some Advil for this headache” for 4 hours. Finally took some.
Can’t I just turn on my out-of-office notification right now? I mean… seriously. It’s time to start this celebraish with bold flavors.
Anyone need a knot tied? I’ll just stick it in my pocket and walk around for a couple hours.
Works every time for my headphones.
@mistergoats LOL - “celebraish”
@JimmySlims Round the corners as mic as possible, and go slower than you think you need to in the sharp ones.

@geehoneybee I’m sure it had nothing to do with last night’s stomach preparations.
@JimmySlims Funny, they list you as mine.
@mistergoats Huh. It curves to the left.
Not that I care.
I mean, it’s totally not of interest at all.
How do I delete a tweet?
@AllanEdwin In a word, no. (Not by a long shot.) I’d love to see something come along that is better, but it hasn’t happened yet.

Google’s using icons instead of text in Gmail’s UI feels like a backwards step to me. Slows me down every time.
I am unruly in the stands.
@geehoneybee That’s the shits. Sorry dude.
Last hockey game of the pre-Christmas session - we won 5-2, and I finally got a goal (and 2 assists). Good way to end it! Super fun session.
@drdrang FWIW I’ve experienced exactly the same so/do autocorrect problem. I just fought with it and it eventually went away. Weird.
Listened to @Ihnatko’s brilliant deconstruction of the classic White Christmas on my commute this morning. Made me want to watch the movie!
@Ihnatko One saving grace WRT Danny Kaye in White Christmas: making Bing laugh during the Sisters routine. Always look forward to that scene
badbanana My favorite holiday drink is the Little Drummer Boy. It’s one part rum, three parts pum.
I’m for abolishing fighting in hockey, but this trailer for a hockey movie called “Goon” looks hilarious: http://t.co/Ppi3cBbe
fraying Do you ever write a tweet, read it, and then decide not to post it?
Perhaps you should.
scottsimpson I wonder if they make a version of trail mix that’s just the M&Ms.
Alright, I’ve got an hour to get through a shit-ton of email. Let’s do this.

@Seanfunk we came home with an exorbitantly priced stuffed animal that accidentally got paint on it.
@Seanfunk the craft they had (same one at various stations) involved paint. Hundreds of parents walking around with wet paint paper. WTF?
Quite disappointed by the Vancouver Aquarium’s “exclusive” member holiday event. Crowded, poorly planned, and we paid a premium. Lame.
My 8 year-old just texted me from his iPod (over iMessage) to ask whether my old Playstation 2 games still work. He wants to trade them in.
@SlvrLambStudios “Reality” shows rarely are (shining moments for the towns they’re set in).
@SlvrLambStudios We don’t get the Oprah channel, but I’d be curious to watch just to see what I could recognize from the old ‘hood!
This magazine article says “Yes You Can: Turn your passion into a career”. So how do I make a career out of my kids and boobs?
@SlvrLambStudios That’s not our Aldergrove, is it?
My wife’s a vegetarian and hates beer. I just had a couple corn dogs and a beer for dinner. I think I turned her on.
@geehoneybee Gonna have to try that one!
Haven’t played hockey in 3 weeks, but since I got my skates sharpened for the first time in far too long, I’m ready for today’s game. #fb
DadBoner I’m the friggin’ man. YOU SUCK. That’s my new motto. Let’s roll, you guys.

@jjsSoccerMom Hi Shan! What brings you to Twitter?
Maybe it’s just Hastings St.
Vancouver smells like an ashtray.

What I don’t love, though, is how often they make you sick.
