Oh, good grief! I awoke this morning to find my Zune in a less than pleasing way. I was concerned that the number of times I’ve dropped the device had finally caught up with me and I was paying the ultimate price. However, I decided to check out what was being said online about this… Continue reading Zune 30 Pandemic
We’re starting to see a more wakeful baby now. She’s staying awake during longer periods of the day – only to nurse relentlessly upon her mother. She has gained a good amount of weight and shows all signs of being a very healthy girl. Of some uniqueness, she’s quite grunty. We get the impression that… Continue reading Sorscha the Serious
Lennart Green, the foremost close-up card magician of the world, dazzled the audience of TED 2005. I caught the video today on my Zune and was thrilled. His show is very entertaining, quick witted, and his foreignness is close to my heart (Green is from Gothenburg, Sweden). The TED video is around 30 minutes of… Continue reading Lennart Green Magic Amazes TEDrs
Carlos brought to my attention his recent exploration of road rash. Oh, Carlos, where can I learn more? Personal experience is often a better teacher than anything else.
I watched “The Fun with Dick and Jane” yesterday. Enjoyable movie – reminds me of “Trading Places.” # Adobe Illustrator gives me a headache. # @DinoRubble Photoshop and Premiere I’m good with. The rest largely elludes me, though I think I’ve been irritated with PageMaker too. # We’re instituting new “Green” janitorial services at work.… Continue reading Twitter Updates for 2008-07-31

As of this past Monday, I began what I hope to be a consistent plan to reduce my gas consumption, reduce mileage on my car, and increase my fitness level. I am currently riding a bicycle for the most… Continue reading No Polluter Commuter!
This morning a guy with a fluorescent-green shirt came to the door a little after 8:00am. “It’s a little too early to be sporting that color,” I thought. Apparently, after 7 or 8 years now, it was time for the local officials to take notice of a small stand of Mimosa trees I had reared… Continue reading The Lumberjacks were Here
I was reminded of the Superhero quiz today and thought I should try it again to see how the results compare or contrast. Today, I am Green Lantern Green Lantern 70% Superman 65% Robin 62% Spider-Man 60% Catwoman 60% The Flash 60% Iron Man 55% Supergirl 50% Batman 50% Wonder Woman 40% Hulk 40% Hot-headed.… Continue reading Superhero Quiz (Revisited)
I must prefix this post with a bit of back story… A reader in Taiwan, Danny Bee, left a comment on an article I wrote (“Emily Yoffe Learns The Secret“). I had first assumed that the comment was spam, though the suspect spam did not follow my preconceived notions of spam. It had no sales… Continue reading Polar Cities
My Jewish friend at work, Mr. Smith, brought to my attention a Creative Loafing series about the Black Mafia Family (BMF). Just in time for the holidays I learned about a brotherhood so rich in…well…ice, scrilla, green, snow, and other hip-hop terms I’m learning. The whole nasty crew started up as small-time drug dealers and… Continue reading Christmas is a Time for Family, the Black Mafia Family
