Brief reference to cookies = Excuse to post this picture.
          What is it about computer solitaire that makes it so frustrating when you don't win, but when you do win, you feel absolutely no sense of accomplishment? You lose five games and win the sixth, and you expect to feel rewarded for your efforts. Instead it just feels like I wasted precious moments of my life. Like I need to get outside, to speak to people and feel the sun. 
          But I can't stop playing within the allotted time that would be ideally used for productivity or socializing or building a decent base tan. I'm not sure why. All day I've been making cookies, catching up on Parks and Recreation, and playing stupid computer solitaire.
          I lose and I feel defeat. I win and I feel like a loser.

Boyfriend: "I just saw a headline that says 'Vaginal Steam Bath Finds a Place Among Southern California Spa Options."
Me: "Hmmmm. What does that mean?"
Boyfriend: "I don't know. I'm going to click on it."

Twenty seconds of suspense later:

Boyfriend: "The first word was 'pungent.' So I stopped reading."

Number two on the Weird Article Title ranking goes to: "Fearsome Lawn Ornament Shot Dead by Cops." No joke.
