Burritos that don't leak

rock the Casbah.

Woe shared by speaker phone...

Oh, you poor person.

If you'd let it dry out completely

before attempting to turn it on,

it might have worked again.
Project Idea:

content, navigated with "go east,"

"go up."

Not a game; exploratory literature.

the time I met Neil Gaiman?
The mighty wind,

if contained,

is naught but air.

It was a good day.

Should I be concerned

that I prefer

Trident For Kids?
Met at the rock gym today:

Diversity training today.

Happy birthday, Mommy.

I remembered, honest I did.

Bother Texas

and its 70-degree Octobers.

I heart

the "Peter Gunn Theme,"

as performed by Art of Noise.

Wah-uhn wah-uhn wah-uhn wah-ah...

is not a verb.

Thank you.
Straw poll Jon was conducting:

In your opinion,

what are the 5 best

movie comedies since 1970?
Pelted by stones,

I thought the windows might break.

Hail storm at midnight.

Thunder and lightening, too.


is not a verb.

Thank you.
He climbs while I spot.

Then I climb while he spots.

Collaborative success.

Rock climbing as a metaphor

for marriage.
I'd rather be

rock climbing.
Because it's not a topic

you can address in seminars.

Because my hometown

is more diverse than this one.

Because you don't respect

my diversity. I don't want to go.
This week, three men here

have suddenly gone

yellow-flower blond.

Did I miss a memo?
You people know stuff like this:

Who composed and performed

the theme to Futurama?


1. 1.

2. 0.

3. Yes. And old children.

4. Imaginary Year

5. The internet, probably.
Today's exercise:

Relinquishing control.
Won't somebody say hello,

even a little?
You can not put in enough

hazelnut non-dairy creamer

to make even a passable


Oh, how I suffer.
If your cell phone rings again,

I will answer it.

Clearly, there is urgent news.
New favorite:

Creamy Clean&Clear Concealer

with salicylic acid.
What work is like:

Went grocery shopping

to calm down.
I don't know how

Opened the sun roof this morning.

New movie forming in my mind,

The Story of a Man,

set to the Beatles One album.

I have your Christmas present.

(Wait long enough,

and it's early.)

I sent you mail.

I miss you!

Write me, baby.
There's another blog

on my list.

They're breeding.
They like me.

They really like me.

Or my web work, anyway,

which is good enough.
Um, here.

Hold this for me.

(Well, it is

after all.)
I wrote a piece of JavaScript,

and it worked on the first try.

Who knew?
Dad is 58 today.

He wrote to say that

the average age of

Rock on, Dad.

Things not to say

during morale committee meetings:

"Stop talking,

you arrogant, useless, grouchy,

nasty, fatalistic, whiny,

Of course.

Think fast,

programmery thoughts at me.
Where could I find

an elegant chess clock

(analog, windup, wood)?

Thanks, ever so.

Texas wouldn't have

a flu season.

Revisiting some fond memories:
