Bill O'Reilly Apologizes
I thought this had to be an article on The Onion when I first saw it, but it’s for real: Pundit O’Reilly Now Skeptical About Bush.
Lovecraft on Ebay?
I can’t really explain this one, you’ll just have to read it to understand. Hopefully it will still be viewable by the time you get there: eBay item 3701347648 (Ends Feb-09-04 15:05:59 PST) - Dibbuk Haunted Jewish Wine Cabinet Box.
Living With Asthma
Today I woke up with a funny feeling in my lungs. It was like a tickle that no matter how much I hacked and coughed just wouldn’t go away. There was a light constriction to my breathing so I pretty much knew right away this wasn’t just some normal run of the mill congestion (it is that time of year after all).
As a child I regularly in and out of various doctor’s offices.
Scientists Discover New Particle
It’s amazing how no matter (pardon the pun) how close the scientific community gets to finding the so-called ultimate theory of everything, there are still regular events like this one that throw long accepted theories into question. Oh, the excitement of high energy particle physics!
note: this was suppossed to be posted yesterday, but various little things got in the way…
Some mornings just aren’t worth getting up for. That’s what I learned today.
You see it all started when I stopped at the ATM to get some cash so that I could buy an espresso on the way in to the office. When I was walking back to my truck I noticed that my left rear tire was almost entirely flat.
This is truely inspired. For those of you who don’t know already, the current administration has asked the UK to basically shutdown large portions of it’s normally publicly accessible streets (including whole businesses, I believe) in order to avoid protestors. It seems the some are going to try and make this rather hard to manage. Wish I was there to join in the fun.
Well, I suspected it might happen eventually, but I’ve finally been cutoff. That is, the powers that be at work have decided that the company is in great danger because of the rampant internet usage that it’s employees were guilty of. So, rather than going on about this, I’ll just point out the obvious, which is that my posting here will likely be even less frequent unless I develop a serious internet habit away from work; which is doubtful since I already spend 8 to 10 hours a day in front of my computer just for the daily drone.
So, back in the mid nineties, a couple of years after dropping out of UT, I was involved with a couple of guys in a musical experiment of sorts. You might call it a band, but I’m not sure that would have been the best way to describe it. Granted, that may have been how others would have described us, but it doesn’t seem to really capture the way we thought of ourselves.
Moving the Site
I’ve been doing some thinking lately about the work that I’ve been doing and plan to do outside of my primary job. I was recently talking to a friend about doing some work for his company as an independent consultant. It occured to me that I don’t have much in the way of a professional face to present to him or his employers even though I have a background in this sort of work.
