Meandering About

I’ve had a bit of a shock to the system lately. I’m completely buried in the redesign of the new Library website. Last night, I woke up around 12:30am (sorry… I went to sleep early…) because I was basically having dreams about working on the website. So I woke up in a sweat… and started working on the website.  In… Read more →

Reflections on a New President

I’m still waiting for Dubbya to declare martial law. I don’t trust him at all. I won’t even trust him when or if his only “job” is clearing brush on his big ass farm. It bothers me, all this coverage of Obama… not the coverage itself, but the emphasis on “black president”. Obama should stand up and say “I am… Read more →

Auto Show Thoughts

Winter weather is socking us in pretty good here. Think I’ll write a short description of what it’s like to drive around in subzero weather, 30 mile an hour winds and heavy snow: IT SUCKS. But we do it anyways. I drove from my condo to Ferndale to pick my dad up for the Auto Show (NAIAS) today. Normally about… Read more →

It's all Over

That should help the economy right itself. Downside? Tina Fey is hot,… Read more →

I'm a little confused. Let me see if I have this right…..

Repost (from Dan G.) * If you grow up in Hawaii, raised by your grandparents , you’re “exotic,different.” * Grow up in Alaska eating mooseburgers, a quintessential American story. * If your name is Barack you’re a radical, unpatriotic Muslim. * Name your kids Willow, Trig and Track, you’re a maverick. * Graduate from Harvard law School, you are unstable.… Read more →

Fully Randomized Thought Process

My favorite quote: “…if it was so, it might be; and if it were so, it would be; but as it isn’t, it ain’t. That’s logic.” I found myself thinking a thought today I’ve never really thought… that I might donate to a political campaign because I really don’t want the other guy to win. Not because I think my… Read more →

Presidential Gauntlet

Fear not. The Presidential Campaign is cancelled. Instead of an election, John McCain and Barack Obama will both send their proxy to appear on ABC’s Wipeout, with the winner taking the election. Think that sounds stupid? It’s about as  valid of a means of electing a President as the current election is bound to be. You see… there are no… Read more →
