On '90s Screensavers to Soothe Our Monday Brains

Once during a childhood visit to my mom's office, I set her computer to the Maze screensaver, but the tricked out version where it spun upside down & used the insane morphing rainbow texture instead of the brick & ground textures. Apparently that full-on visual nightmare was too much for her crappy office PC to handle and it promptly crashed. The IT guy was amused, at least.

(Half of the pleasure is her absurd old-school accent. Words, weeaauurds!)

On What's On Your Locker Door?

1. Some male gymnast from the Sports Illustrated for Women (I know) Swimsuit Issue (I KNOW).
2. Orlando Bloom, natch (2002 was a great year).
3. Strong Bad (to keep it from getting too earnest, I guess?).

On "Do You Know Who You Look Like?"

@Moodeln On a weirdly related note, I have never seen my MIL more offended than when someone told her she looked like Linda Tripp. Hoo boy.

On Universal Book Titles

I love these. The answers I came up with sounded like movie titles that were altered for foreign markets and then translated back into English. "Lady Dragon Gets Muscles", "Flower Girl Baby Monster", "Alien SARS Death", and "Hello Dancing Lady" were my faves--and of course everyone's new favorite super hero, "Bunny Man".
