  • Latest Items That Made Me Laugh

    Mack Reed penned The Fastest Spider in Los Angeles, which charmed me and made me laugh. PCL Linkdump posted a link to a Simplicity Hammer Pants. Giggled at that one. File under “funny ’cause it’s true” — Sassy‘s Tips for New Dads. Also: Matthew Baldwin‘s Thought Crimes and Re: Cephalopod are both hilarious. Neil Kramer…


  • And then, I tried to catch up with my blogreading.

    So I went almost a week without blogging, then the 4th of July happened, and now it’s the weekend. Now I can catch up with some blogreading, and perhaps I’ll share some of the things I find with you. Perhaps I’ll even share some of my own thoughts about this past week. Let’s start, shall…

  • Around the Web

    Chuck got married. Mazel tov! There’s a Princess Bride Game, and I can’t quite tell if the thing is serious. These primitive sketches for some notable web sites are interesting. These four calendar pages are Surfrider Foundation. The pages make their point pretty well. Surfers versus Paparazzi. My bet would be on the surfers. John…


  • Oh, right, blogging. Hi!

    Points that may or may not represent a plane. Had a nice father’s day. Got a Happy Father’s Day card from the kids and none of the four kids felt it necessary to add “step” to my appellation. A nice surprise. Drove by the beach yesterday, pretty. Talked to my Mom and Dad yesterday on…

  • Oh, the incredible miscellany of it all; Who I’m reading these days

    Yesterday I saw the new Indiana Jones movie with Jukebox JT and his wife, and the seeing and the talking after was fun, but the movie is not, uh, good. But I don’t want to talk about that. I’ve got a backlog of stuff to mention. Ready? Go! I used to work with Electromute, I…


  • Big Week

    Yesterday was great. We’re a part time big family. 11 for dinner, one of whom was a girlfriend, one of whom was a friend. Leah did amazing job with the meal, and our houseguests provided a smashing success of a dessert. Well, I say houseguests but I mean Heather. Incredible cook, she is. Anyhoo, no…

  • The Misc on the Bus Goes Round and Round

    I had gotten in the habit of blogging every weekday for the last few weeks, but broke that streak by not blogging on Friday or subsequently, until this lovely Sunday morning. So, yes. What is to say, exactly? The answer is that there are quite a few random datapoints I could mention. Here are a…

  • As a matter of fact…

    …I blogged over the weekend. Read that instead of something new today. Misc, Art, Mother’s Day (that’s a good one!) Iron Man, Redesigned (cool links to neat different Iron Man designs!) Movies this Year (the movies I want to see; we didn’t see Speed Racer this weekend, but I suspect it’s not very good —…


  • Misc, Art, Mother’s Day

    It’s been a long while since I did a full wrap up of what I’m looking at and reading. So here’s some miscellaneous stuff I’ve read and thought about and watched and listened to. Tom Bickle asked some really interesting philosophical questions today: How entitled?: What’s in a name? Surely, any communication carries with it…

  • A Few Updates

    We have a tiny grapefruit tree in our yard. I’m told the fruit is small and tart. We have possums in the yard. Leah saw a cat-sized one maybe 2 weeks ago. Yesterday I saw a tinier, cuter one. We go through so many headphones and earbuds. I think the kids really do eat them….

  • Sickish. Misckish.

    Still feverish. Nasal congestion ahoy! Cough productive now. I would rather <i>move</i> than be sick right now. That’s pretty bad. Some miscellaneous items for you: Hindsight is 20/20: quotes about Iraq from before we started: Voices: The Quotes That Sent Us To War. My favorite: “Having defeated and then occupied Iraq, democratizing the country should…

  • Ode To Thursday

    Who am I kidding? I don’t want to write an ode. It’s six in the mornin’. Starting early. Having lunch with a good pal I’ve not seen in a few years. This could be fun. Swam yesterday, TWICE. Even shared a lane swimming laps. It was fine. I swam every day in the past 7…

  • Seeking “Paul Ronald Ryan” from Dodger Game, 1960s

    A colleague of mine here at work is in search of evidence of his biological father’s existence. Because he knows I’m a big internet data mining nerd he asked for my help, and in turn I ask you for help. Here’s the information he provided me: During a Dodger game during the 1965, 1966, or…


  • Abort, Retry, Fail

    If at first you don’t succeed. Retry. Hey y’all. Getting back in the saddle after not feeling too well. Also, I did a rough draft of my taxes and it looks like we need to save a pile of money or The Tax Man is gonna be mad. But have no fear, we have payment…

  • The Misc For The Week

    Douglas Crockford on Change: Change isn’t good enough. The word change doesn’t include a direction or an intention. We have had a lot of change over the last seven years. Most of it was in a seriously wrong direction. We will be feeling the effects of that change for decades to come. I say no…

  • Bizarre Data-Mining Oddness from Sprint

    The image: Click through to for my speculations on how this happened, though I really have no idea.


  • Older, Still. Random Long Rambling.

    “Mind the noose and fare thee well.” is in my earbuds this morning. Got a lot done so far this morning. Much yet more to do. TMBG Lyrics for the morning, from Older: You’re older than you’ve ever been and now you’re even older And now you’re even older And now you’re even older You’re…
