Almost 7:00 and I'm still full from Todai at noon.

Best value on Japanese food in Oregon.

Friends make the excruciating solo drive up I5 from Eugene to Portland more than worth it.

Note to self [Mar. 12th, 2010|03:25 pm]

When it's been raining, do not look out the front door, see it's not raining at the moment, and decide to put on a short jacket to walk somewhere a third of a mile away. Grab the trench coat right next to it.

Domestic terrorist crashes private plane [Feb. 18th, 2010|10:44 am]

About 9:30 AM Central this morning, a man named Joseph A. Stack crashed his Piper Cherokee into an office building in Austin, Texas containing the local CIA, FBI, and IRS offices. He apparently left an online suicide note and set fire to his house with his wife and daughter inside prior to boarding the plane. According to the suicide note, frustration with the IRS made him a Marxist and his plan was to "wake up" Americans by causing a fascist blowback by the federal government.

Breaking news here.

French minister claims US relief efforts in Haiti are an attempt to occupy it.

I suppose it's too much to hope that the President will respond "Well, you'd be the experts on that."

So with a cash gift of $200 and the impressive sales today, I was able to acquire 3 pairs of slacks, 3 turtlenecks, 2 dress shirts, a vest, a tie, dress gloves, a 100% cashmere sweater, and Penguin paperbacks of 2 epic poems.

Yes, I'm very excited to have spent gift money predominantly on clothes. Maybe that's when you know you're an adult?

Well hey, if nobody knows why today is called that, why not go with the most amusing possibility?

This always gets me choked up, thinking about all we lost needlessly back then. There are a couple of other songs about the event, but this one is the best.

Tis the Devil's plant! [Nov. 3rd, 2009|09:50 pm]

Did you know that in 1604, King James I and VI of England and Scotland published an anti-smoking pamphlet? He even warns about the danger to the lungs from second-hand smoke.

So, there's the King James Bible. There's the King James anti-smoking pamphlet. There are King James' sonnets. There's even a King James demonology. Personally, though, I wish there were King James versions of every type of book. King James' Fairy Tales! The King James Mysteries! The King James Cookbook!
