Today was a day that reminded me of the old days. I worked for 12 hours, and enjoyed every minute of it. I can’t remember the last time I did that…
heh. look at the file name, then look at the picture.
I finally took a few minutes to add the long-overdue contact, about, and photo pages. I’ll hook the photo of the day scripts up (finally) in a day or two. I need to make more page headers (the “what’s on my mind today” tagline was meant only for the main page), and write some longer things for the more section.
I’m this close to buying a Rio 500 or a minidisc player, but then I see this and know I could get ten hours of music for a lower price (and same size package) as the Rio or an MD player. Unfortunately, it’s not out yet, but they claim to be starting their production run this week. I want one of these mp3 CDR players so bad I can’t stand it.
I spent time with my family down in LA this weekend and it was great. I tried to avoid the TV and cnn.com as much as possible, as the Elian overload was too much to take (I did enjoy the exchanges on MetaFilter though).
I could write volumes on the subject, but I’ll try to be as concise as possible: be skeptical. Be skeptical of everything you’re seeing (especially what you’re seeing) and reading, as the whole thing smacks of a perverted election-year political game. Put even more simply, the spin doctors are tugging your heart strings for a vote. Both sides of the political system, the newspapers, and the television news are all guilty of doing it, and I find the whole thing revolting.
After hearing everyone I know rave about Kozmo, I finally decided to give them a try. About a half hour after I hit “submit order,” I had some cookies, ben and jerry’s, and a copy of the 20th Anniversary edition Caddyshack DVD.
So I’ve got that goin’ for me…which is nice.
The delivery was perfect, quick, and easy. I have a feeling I’ll be using Kozmo a lot in the future.
ugh. I wish I could write something bright and cheery here today: things are going fine, and I got to hang out with someone I really admire today, but I feel like crap. For the first time in my life, I have allergies. After spending the last three years indoors in hyper-filtered, air-conditioned, sterile comfort at UCLA, I’m now prone to pollen. It’s funny, but something that’s just slightly irratating by itself, like a never-ending runny nose, can make everything worse.
blah. make it stop.
