I Get By With A Little Help From My Friends

Some Instant Message conversations I've had recently:

-------------------

Jeff: So I just wrote out a couple of methods in code. 20+ lines or so each. Not crazy stuff.
Jeff: I run the web app. Error on line 1.
Jeff: I fix the error, run it again. Error on line 2.
Jeff: Then, error on line 3.
I actually nightmare'd about this little guy when I was a kidJeff: The pattern held for a distressingly long time.
Jeff: I have just gotten to the end of the method with apparent success.
Jeff: I feel like a climbed a mountain.
iCanSpell: Oh! Like that mountain climbing yodeling guy on the Price is Right!
Jeff: Exactly.
Jeff: Thin, nerdy, and eventually falls off.

-------------------

Jeff: As I was walking in to work, there was a little bit of rain and many high winds.
Jeff: My umbrella turned inside out.
P-Ziddy: Awesome!
Jeff: That exact moment, somebody walking the other direction pointed and laughed.
Mockery made simpleJeff: And I thought, "Am I in a Simpsons cartoon?"
Jeff: "G'morning Nelson." "HA HA!"
P-Ziddy: And once more, the blog writes itself
Jeff: Quite so.
P-Ziddy: No creativity on your part is required
Jeff: There ya go.

Oh! I'm Internet famous! Well, not really.. how many readers do you have?

Incidentally, after that conversation, I had the yodeling guy's yodel trapped in my head for several hours. Maddening.

Did you happen to watch the Colbert Report video where they used the mountain climber from TPIR to represent Glenn Beck? Funny stuff, right there :)
