Birthday Boy and Girl!

Hap­py Birth­day to the inim­i­ca­ble and the lus­cious !

Goodbye Dr. Hoffman

Dr. Albert Hof­mann died yes­ter­day, April 29, 2008. Why haven’t I got­ten one of those “urgent news updates” from CNN or the Atlanta paper? Los­ing him is cer­tain­ly more news­wor­thy than most of the things they do alert me about, like sports scores!

A com­menter (and I don’t know where the com­ment went, unfor­tu­nate­ly) let […]

Pain Doc Day

Today was the month­ly vis­it to the pain doc, which requires trekking across town to Fas­cist Coun­ty. It was some­what amus­ing to see “Drought Threat Lev­el 4 Mea­sures in Effect!” right next to CVS water­ing their lit­tle patch of grass.

The doc­tor dou­bled my break­through pain med, so that I’m allowed to take it more […]

Where are my Gravatars?

I obe­di­ent­ly updat­ed to Word­Press 2.5.1, and lost my Gra­vatars. I’ve checked the set­tings, and they’re still enabled. They’re def­i­nite­ly still in my tem­plates, but nobody gets any­thing but the default “no gra­vatar” pic­ture. Buh?

Weekend Update

We had a very nice week­end, fair­ly qui­et for me (as usu­al). Katie went out with her beau Fri­day night, and Sam and I final­ly got to see the first sea­son 2 Torch­wood episode, “Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang.” It was worth the wait! I won­der how much BBC Amer­i­ca bowd­ler­ized it? Unfor­tu­nate­ly, we don’t have […]

Books People Don’t Read

Tak­en from

These are the 106 books most often marked as “unread” by LibraryThing’s users. As in, they sit on the shelf to make you look smart or well-round­ed. Bold the ones you’ve read, under­line the ones you read for school, ital­i­cize the ones you start­ed but didn’t fin­ish.

Day of Silence

Day of Silence : April 25, 2008

Done!

I took my man­age­ment final and turned in my peer review for the human­i­ties class, so I am fin­ished!

I sup­pose this is my spring break, then. All the way ’til Sun­day, when the next class­es start.

TotD: Tipping Points

From The Tip­ping Point by Mal­colm Glad­well:

We are actu­al­ly pow­er­ful­ly influ­enced by our sur­round­ings, our imme­di­ate con­text, and the per­son­al­i­ties of those around us. Tak­ing the graf­fi­ti off the walls of New York’s sub­ways turned New York­ers into bet­ter cit­i­zens. Telling sem­i­nar­i­ans to hur­ry turned them into bad cit­i­zens. The sui­cide of a […]

TotD: How Science Will Change the 21st Century

From Visions: How Sci­ence Will Rev­o­lu­tion­ize The 21st Cen­tu­ry by Michio Kaku:

Gen­er­a­tions of high school chil­dren gasp when they read Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juli­et, for they are amazed to dis­cov­er that Juli­et was only thir­teen years old. We some­times for­get that, for most of human exis­tence, our lives were short, mis­er­able, and brutish. Sad­ly, […]
