comics: focus on something happy

Hm… yeah. So how’s everyone else’s “holiday week” going? Today’s poll in Express was asking if people are getting any work done during these days, and since most people I chat with get this week off standard anyway, I’d have...

video: is that like Linkin Park?

I blame my father. He bought two high-definition tv’s for their house, refurbished, but still very good sets, and the Blu-ray discussion came up. I’ve always been fairly non-stressed about upgrading my DVD player, even after conversations with friends and...

comics: wholesome, yet disturbing…?

I think about the only time I read the comics in the newspaper is when I visit the family for the holidays, and I just found this Family Circus strip disturbing! I’m sure it’s supposed to represent a cute little...

adobe: have a good book nearby

Why is it that the day or two after you refuse a new job offer, your own job stinks even worse than usual? After mulling it over and weighing pros and cons, I decided that my current job is best...

work: what me, hireable?

I had my “on-site” interview today, actually meeting the federal client and seeing where I might work. I’m still deciding what I want to do, but I can’t help wear a smile and perhaps a slight swagger. Being in-demand, professionally,...

UI: touchy-feely is still fine by me

This all started with a shared item from Kris’ Google Reader: FluidTunes Controls iTunes by Your Waving Hand. It actually looks pretty cool, your MacBook’s camera picks up your movements in relation to certain controls on the screen and you...

office: Pet Peeve #732

If I may take a moment to rant… Here’s a clipped image of an e-mail sent out this morning regarding a going away luncheon for an employee that’s leaving. From the blurry mass next to To: and the opening “Everyone,”...

evil twin: human iron babe

I love anagrams. And I do feel a bit like my evil twin today. I decided to accentuate the silvery strands growing in around my chin and nowhere on my cheeks by shaving a vandyck. Since I generally go equally...

blogging: 10,000 strong and growing?

Uh, wow. Back in June, I was all happy when my blog reached 10,000 visits. Much of that was friends and new repeat visitors, and it wasn’t counting that many unique hits. Sometime in the past few weeks, I passed...

food: it smells as good as it looks!

Ever since I saw Ina make Chicken with 40 Cloves of Garlic on Barefoot Contessa, I knew it was a dish for me. In fact her show, over time, wore down my resistance to only cooking chicken in one way–baking...

gadgets: Ba-boop! Pizza’s here!

I thought it was bad when there were talks to add a “pizza” button to World of Warcraft. Thankfully that never came about, but apparently they’re still marketing easy pizza access to people without having to get up. From a...

comics: Gay Marriage? Oh Noes!!

Another fun strip from Sinfest: Your Corporate Masters. I find it a little funny that New England seems up to speed on this while California, a place most associate as being our country’s own little version of Hell on Earth...

video: Open Source isn’t always a good thing

One thing I do like about the DVR is the ability to catch programs that I guess are clearly aimed at those that don’t need to be up at 5:30 or so in the morning to head to work, like...

A worth-repeating piece of advice from Kung Fu Panda. You’re never just anything. Get the latest Flash Player to see this player. [Javascript required to view Flash movie, please turn it on and refresh this page] I don’t normally enjoy...
