Month: March 2004

  • this evening’s fortune cookie

    I think tonight's fortune cookie from T. Jin's says it all: “Don't be afraid of the computers. Be afraid of the lack of computers.” They know me too well.

  • it’s official: i’m getting old

    Got a haircut today. As usual, trim around the top, #2 on the sides… Then the haircutter tells me to close my eyes, so I'm guessing she's gonna snip the front of my hair (are they called bangs on guys?) and is trying to prevent hair from falling in my eyes. Thoughtful, that. Much to…

  • life on mars?

    Well, NASA's Opportunity rover has snapped a picture (scroll down) of a bunny on Mars. has coverage of the bunny here. I'd be willing to bet this shows up in next month's Playboy. 😉

  • the results of the war on terror

    According to Jon Stewart over at the Daily Show, the results of the war on terrorism are one police state (in Iraq) and one Socialist State. Democracies still to come.

  • the sweet smell of… dumpsters?

    There's really nothing better than the weather has been the last few days. Mid-70's, not a cloud in the sky, a little breeze. So, everyone wanders around campus a little slower than usual because everyone wants to enjoy the wonderful weather. So, like everyone else, I'm walking across campus. There's nothing like walking behind someone…

  • sweet, sweet irony

    So I go to the local McDonalds for lunch today, and staring at me on the way in is the little section of newspaper stands. The USA Today headline was quite fitting: “Obesity on track to become No. 1 killer.” Article is on-line here. For those curious, I still ate at the golden arches.

  • pondering ingredients

    Diann & I were cooking last night (wild salmon filets with a chipotle glaze and jalapeño-lime butter, yum!) and I realized that we've been using quite a bit of chipotles in adobo sauce recently. That made me start thinking about our cooking habits. Do you ever notice that you use ingredients in phases? Before, we…
