Things That Makes Me Sweat and Shake

There are 3 things that make me unnecessarily nervous: 1.  The “icy” warning in my car’s dashboard whenever the temperature dips below freezing. Do car manufacturers think we’re idiots?

Two teams will begin to ready themselves for one of the biggest games they will ever play, while the remaining two will go home crestfallen and utterly disappointed (so close, yet so far…).

Mario Live Wallpaper for Android [zOMG!]

Here’s another one for my fellow Android fans: a Super Mario Live Wallpaper! If your phone runs Android 2.1 or higher, this FREE download allows you to mimic a non-interactive game right in the background of your phone.
