Crossposts

I am ceasing to use “crossposts” as a category, since it seems silly when most posts are such. Using the category of the name of where they are crossposted should suffice, and if it’s a repost rather than a crosspost, … Continue reading

“the ball bearings shouldn’t be asking the driver about the grease”

Lucky Me

You Are Bamboo You are a very independent and unpredictable person. You do things your way, and you never know what turn your life will take. You are very intellectual and logical. You try to think things through carefully, in … Continue reading

Duh?

You Are a Geek You definitely have some nerdy ways, but you’ve evolved into something way cooler – a geek.  You are free spirited and quirky. You’re proud of who you are, and you’ve got style.   You may not … Continue reading

Yeah, I Think of Them as Safe Too…

As noted by voluntaryXchange, the preferred malware vector is now PDF files. Which is logical, given their ubiquity and the apparent vulnerability they make available. I haven’t kept up on these things as much as I might have, since I … Continue reading

Nixon, Wilson, One of Those…

Don Surber notes just how Nixonian Obama seems, and rightly so, among others. I’ve compared him in the past to Wilson, Johnson, Nixon and Carter. Thing is, he’s not as politcally savvy as Johnson, even if he’s wrecking the economy … Continue reading

This is Brilliantly Funny

Censorious Dreams

Valerie has had the same nightmare about our house being on fire and us having to escape it two nights in a row, with no apparent provocation or prior similar nightmares. She seemed a little feverish this AM, so maybe … Continue reading

Fear the Media Meltdown

Not the nuclear one! Great and detailed sense and information on what is actually happening, what dosages mean, and the media and anti-nuke industry reaction have been. It’s not nothing, but it’s not Chernobyl and can’t be, nor is it … Continue reading

I Am Neither!

But these two quizzes aren’t designed to reflect that, except possibly when taken together. You Are 36% Republican You’re a bit Republican and probably more conservative than you realize. If you’re still voting Democrat, maybe it’s time that you stop. … Continue reading

Book Writing Question

I’ve had a book idea in mind for a few years, but in part due to the Kindle and 99 cent success stories am newly excited about getting around to it. Thing is, while a business book, it’s true and … Continue reading

Elect the Dodge… Because He Won’t

Andrew Ian Dodge is running for senator from Maine and gives a great interview at RedState, including addressing that all-importand facial hair issue: “Many men in American political history had facial hair like Teddy Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln, I would … Continue reading

Not to Be Confused With a Green Commie…

Missing the Point

I work part time for a pretty large company. I’ve been there almost two and a half years, which is forever in terms of their retention, if hardly the longest in my location. It’s a bit like human mortality, in … Continue reading

Drugs and Change

Recently I got an ear infection.  Not shocking, given my childhood propensity for them and the fact that I’ve been almost continuously sick since Sadie started kindergarten in September, culminating with and resuming after a quick bout of flu and … Continue reading

Still Poor

Just checked. Didn’t win Megamillions. Don’t often do it, but bought one a few days ago on a whim when I saw the jackpot sign in Hannaford. $127 million would solve everything! And yes, I know, but even after taxes, … Continue reading

Scrabble

I remember playing Scrabble for Juniors with my mother at a fairly young age, and regular Scrabble sometime not much later. I could read before I even started school, so young I don’t remember ever not knowing how. I have … Continue reading
