This list should be self-explanatory, and you should notice a common theme here:

1. "This program is not responding."
2. "<xxxxx> has encountered an error and will be closed."
3. "Waiting for cache."
4. "Connecting..."
5. "Establishing secure connection."
6. "Buffering..."
7 "Loading..."
8. "Waiting for <xxxxx>..."
9. "404 Not Found..."...

Top 10 List #12: Companies From Hell

There are some companies you love doing business with. Then there are the ones you wish would die a horrible, fiery death. For me, these corporations fall squarely into the latter category.

1. Coinmach: These people "manage" laundry rooms in apartments, dorms, and other such places. And I use the term loosely since these idiots have obvious issues with maintaining their circa 1972 equipment, and really, really don't like to refund money even though their machines stopped...

Dear Restaurants:

Tags hotel, rant

Can I just ask one thing? What is this trend toward casual sit down places using "artisan/brioche" buns for burgers that contain eggs? As one who is highly allergic to eggs, I've had to cross numerous restaurants off my list of places to eat because they don't have any buns in stock that I can actually eat! Among them, a local place I used to enjoy, restaurants within hotels that host anime conventions (Marriott and Embassy Suites among them), and even a couple of national chains including...

Really, Quality Inn?

Posted January 23rd, 2014 at 2:29 PM by Elite Overlord LeSabre™ (Wouldn't YOU really rather have a Buick?)

Now, it's no secret that I prefer Quality Inn as they're usually an excellent value for the money (I've stayed at more luxurious chains for anime conventions and enjoyed them, but they're too expensive for me unless I'm sharing and splitting the room cost with others.) With that said, I am virtually guaranteed never to stay at one of our local locations again.

My parents were coming into town for a quick visit. I booked them a room at the Quality Inn in question, where I've stayed...

I hate having to go through this...

By "this" I mean anime convention withdrawal, naturally. It's been January since I've been to a con, and because of the timing and finances of my moving across multiple state lines, I had to miss the April one I usually try to go to. And since summer is typically a dead period for cons in my neck of the woods, it won't be till October till there's another one in the area.

Well, I've survived seven months without going completely crazy. Hopefully these last two months won't...
