So yes, the posting has been a tad infrequent of late. You've seen me apologize for this, you'll likely see it again. Let's move past all the pleasantries and get into the goods then, shall we? I don't have a case of the Mondays today, I've got a case of the entire freakin' week.
- GET yourself an RSS reader. Do it now, don't wait, get over there and yet ya some. (For my friends with PDA's, a partnership of MobileRSS and AvantGo will make your bones shiver with joy.) Lemme get this post done with, and I'll give you all a list of my current favorite RSS feeds. Don't know about RSS, OPML, or the world in general? There's the links - go take care of that.
- Mrs. Baird's makes these cinnamon rolls you can find in most vending machines, and I tell ya, they are GOLD for your $0.75. Of course they're not healthy, and of course if you can avoid eating from a vending machine at all costs you should do so, but when you're fungry and all you've got is a few Washingtons, hit up the digits for these things and enjoy.
- BLEW through Cory Doctorow's "Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom" this weekend, and I enjoyed it immensely. When I was in high school, I read "Neuromancer," not knowing it for the cyberpunk bible that it is. Turns out I like the genre quite a bit. Right now I'm working on "Rule of Four" by Ian Caldwell and Dustin Thomason, which I'm also finding to be a good read.
- Isn't it ironic that I work in Marketing, love promoting products and ideas to consumers, and yet can't stand the banal, fake, and hedonistic images staring back at me from the Kroger check-out line?
- I'm going to download the most annoying cell phone ring I can find and put it on full volume. Then I'm going to leave my phone on my desk and find an autodialer on eBay to call it incessantly during the day. I have heard no less than FIVE Christmas-themed cell phone rings from colleagues surrounding my cube. Has someone pushed the "Become Awash With Stupidity" button on Earth's master control system and failed to notify me??
- See that girl on the left, the one sitting next to me? She's my wife, and she's the most amazing person on this planet or any other currently known. Sure, if they discover Vulcan in my lifetime we may have to rethink this, but for now she's got it covered.
