Cultural references

Wil Wheaton recently linked to this picture, which I found uproariously funny. And then it occurred to me that there are several different layers here. Layer one is something like the non-geeks, who probably understand that something nerdy is going on. Layer two is the geeky layer, who understand just what the photo represents. Layer three, though, is the layer of people who have grossly misspent their lives wasting time on the Internet for years and years and who have actually seen that photograph before. Kinda makes you...stop and take stock of your life, ya know? ;)

Anyway...pulled a long-ass shift last night. I commuted home during daylight hours, which I've found to be unfun. Also found that my room is ill-suited to sleeping to late afternoon, at least now during the winter months. I actually had to blindfold myself, there was so much sunlight. Gotta get some blackout curtains or something. Going back for my Saturday shift soon enough. Didn't get enough sleep. And then after tonight I have to run right back into Sunday afternoon. I think I'm going to crash big-time on Monday. Shall see.
