Hello

Do you ever just need to hit the reset button? That’s how I have felt lately. So naturally, the first thing I did was choose a new blog layout and pledge to myself that I would end my self imposed communication blackout. (drnk txt mesg @ 5AM dnt cnt) I chose “a dark blue and grey two-column theme adorned with flowers.” Not sure how I feel about it yet.

I am watching a PBS special on fractals. Arthur C. Clarke is hosting, and Stephen Hawking is a frequent guest quote guy. It is quite interesting, but I have been particularly upset by the fact that they got some cheap cover band to imitate Shine On You Crazy Diamond during the burnt-out screen saver shots. I’m sure Pink Floyd would have provided you with market-rate royalty fees to play what I’m sure everyone watching wishes you were using. That does it…I’m not joining OPB this year. Or maybe that means I should.

If there is a feeling better than thinking you are about to open your last beer, and realizing you have 2 left, I don’t know what it is.

Where do all the good people go? JJ asks the question, this week, on Austin City Limits. Since I’ll probably be home alone this Friday, I plan on watching. There are several job openings in my field in Austin right now. Maybe I’ll move there…I have a friend down there, who is always trying to convince me to go for a visit. She is also pretty crazy, if memory serves.

Now PBS is showing a program on plane crashes. I wonder which South Park rerun is on? Here is an official shout-out to my new, old friend Amanda, who I have known for 10 years but didn’t talk to for the last 6, who may or may not have read the email I sent her in which I informed her of the existence of this blog. Just make sure you leave Czechoslovakia the way you find it, ok?

Does anyone else not give a flying fuck about the super bowl? I might care if the Bears were actually good, and if Peyton “Visa McStarbucks” wasn’t the Colts’ QB. Maybe I’m a bitter Eagles fan. Let’s just say I’m glad I never posted my pre-playoffs predictions.

    What, were they out of rainbows and unicorns motifs? Just kidding, I like it.

    I don’t care about the super bowl, but that doesn’t mean I won’t watch. I mean, hey, it’s football.

    I remember the goode old dayes of around 2001, my first blog, when I had to actually learn some HTML to make it remotely presentable.

    I know, it’s depressing knowing there’s only one more game until August. I always go on suicide watch in the off season. Thank god for hockey.

    I love this layout! In fact, you wouldn’t know it by looking at it, but it’s the same layout I use on Big Picnic. At least, it’s the one I started with, I just changed all the colors and graphics.

    Those are some fancy flowers you have there. Unfortunately, my programming skills are limited to pointing and clicking.
