The comic is pretty funny by itself, but the comments on it are hilariously accurate too! Here’s my favorite:
IE10 is like the friend that said he would show up to the party early and bring tons of booze that everyone can have, but shows up 3 hours late with a 40 of king kobra for himself.
Meanwhile, your good, reliable, friend Firefox just said he would show up, and ended up bringing 2 kegs because he wanted to.
Safari and opera showed up together. They aren’t the coolest, but they are fun to have around at parties. They don’t…

Because Sharing is Caring [Memos from Nick Fury]

Last week, both kids received their flu vaccines…and they’ve been coughing since. Claire seems to be holding up pretty well, but Aerin’s dry cough turned into phlegm-y, hacking fits which progressed to a fever. And with her surgery date so close, the doctor advised us to keep an extra watch on her.
Like most kids, Aerin tends to get overly clingy when she’s not feeling well. So it’s no surprise that I got a little sick too…

This post is a link dump of sorts — three items I found especially interesting/funny and compelling enough for me to want to share them with you.

This Will Be the Best 11 Minutes and 38 Seconds of Your Day

I’m still working on some back-end stuff for the blog post-transition, so posts will continue to stay light through the weekend. But before I go, I wanted to share two things —
First, a compilation video of some of the best 2013 Vines so far. I know that at 11+ minutes, it’s longer than your average “I want to waste some time online” YouTube video, but I guarantee it’s worth it!

Next, I wanted to remind you that today is the last day to enter my It Can Wait giveaway. Have you entered yet? You can win a BlackBerry Q10,…
