<p>It's hard to believe that PIC is turning 10 years old. Partially because that's an eternity in the comedy-website world (remember when fmylife.com was fresh and relevant?), but mostly because it seems like it's been much, much longer than that.

<p>I apologize for the title. I was going to be a little more honest about how I felt, but, "Fuck You, Bill Simmons and our Masturbatory, Overrated Screeds about How Much Smarter You are than Everyone Else" didn't fit in the little title box as neatly as I would have liked. C'est la vie. </p>
<p>I'm sitting at work, wondering how I can distinguish myself. I run through a list of options in my mind; working harder? No, that sounds like hard work. Working smarter? If I could work smarter, wouldn't I be doing it already? Bringing in delicious red velvet cupcakes? Not bad, but easily forgettable in the parade of pastries passed through the people of the office.</p>
<p>I was on the fence about writing about this, but then I saw KC's post about his hair and figured why not? I don't think the woman in question reads PIC, and if she does, well, I'll deal with it. </p>
<p>As you may or may not know, I've been known to occasionally post some lyrics on this here blog. I had an idea for some, and was just listening to a few songs to orient myself in a proper cadence. Unsuprisingly, lyrics are easier to write if you have an idea of what they should sound like.</p>

<p>Just doing some catching up. If you're not already, you should totally follow PIC on twitter:</p><p>http://twitter.com/PointsInCase </p><p>If you think, wow, that's really funny, but I wish it had more ramblings about baseball and impromptu rap lyrics, feel free to follow me:</p><p>http://twitter.com/NomChompsky.</p>
<p>BOOM! The poem(ish) is weeks old, the song years old, but it's all fresh to you! Plus, people still misuse "ironic" more than they use it properly, so it's all good! </p><p><strong>Unironic </strong></p>
I know I haven't posted much (or anything) for a while. I have my reasons, which aren't really important. Suffice to say I didn't post for a while, I have a couple things to put up, so hopefully you should hear more from me in the coming weeks.<p>It IS good to know that even when you haven't posted in a while, Google has a habit of popping this place up at inopportune times. Like job interviews.
