Catherine said I should post this:


jet packs, too

Randall has apparently hacked my brain: Perhaps my information anxiety is not entirely unfounded.


makes perfect sense, twenty-odd years later

19 Feb

Quoth on facebook (hock, ptooie!) a person I dated once upon a time many, many moons ago: “Maybe If I was drunk I’d understand ‘Scott Pilgrim vs. The World’” Which spurred the following thought in my head: Well, that’s why things between us went the way they did… A mystery I never thought much about, […]

Happy birthday, Andrew! I really should post a picture here, as is my habit, but I can’t figure out how to do it from the phone. Just imagine a picture of nine penguins, or a photo of christopher eccleston here for now, okay? update: look! I sort of figured out how. Behold, nine penguins!


smart phone, one week in: novelty and paranoia

16 Feb

as I mentioned two posts ago, last weekend Colleen and upgraded our aged mobile phones, coming home with shiny new Samsung Vibrants running the android operating system.

11 Feb

I just wanted to see if I could blog from the new android phone using the wordpress app. Looks like it works, though I can’t imagine typing more than a few dozen words this way. Happy Friday!


revolutionary thought for the day

10 Feb

Courtesy of Thomas Paine, journalist, propagandist, and one of the “Fathers” of the American Revolution: Reason obeys itself; and ignorance submits to whatever is dictated to it.

sound and fury LEDs, signifying nothing

I thought a bit about writing something about my reaction to the “spectacle” surrounding this year’s Super Bowl, though it seems, as usual, while I was dithering about in the gym and looking into a regular Monday night d20 game last evening, Amanda beat me to it. And, she pretty much mirrors what I was […]
