i so nearly had a heart attack just a few minutes ago. i'm in houston at my parents' house for the weekend and when i pulled up i saw that only one car was here, so i knew that meant there wouldn't be anyone home when i came in. so i'm backing my way through the front door dragging all my stuff in and just over my shoulder, out of the corner of my eye i see this HUGE man standing in the living room. my stomach jumped right up into my throat and i spun around to see who the heck it was and it turns out... it was a life-sized picture of 7'5" houston rockets center yao ming holding a laptop. you know those apple ads for the powerbooks with yao ming and mini-me that say "the next big and small things from apple"? it's one of those ads. i have no idea where it came from or why we have it. all i know is, it nearly necessitated a fresh pair of undies. sheesh.
