Ceci n'est pas une personne.

On the bus I saw this guy with a hat that read, "Hooked on Jesus." I was very tempted to tell him that, "we have a 12 step program for that," but sadly I chickened out.

I swear humans must retain a hibernation gene. Then it's sunny and warm, I have more energy, less of an appetite, and sleep less. When it gets cold and gray out, I eat more, do less, and sleep more. When you see me stuff nuts into my cheeks, you know winter is coming. (Ummm... That came out sounding very wrong.)

I occasionally see people say in reference to education or movie or evn games that with advancements of computers it's great to see computers being used what they were originally meant for.

I could be wrong, but I believe the original purposes of computers were to wage war. They first electronic computers were designed for calculating artillery ballistics and cracking enemy codes. Education, media, arts, games, medical sciences all had nothing to do with it.

Actually, while war is horrible, some of the technology developed for fighting conflicts has greatly advanced our quality of life in other areas, and computers are just one example. In fact, I suspect it would be hard to get through your day without using some technology that was originally designed for a military purpose. Though, it might be an interesting challenge to give it a try.

A few things...

  1. Emily brought the correct truck back from PT this week. Anyone want to help me move a couch and a chair?
  2. Beau got one of the fliers for Fluorine printed up. If life cooperates I'm going to go there this Wednesday and enjoy the music and see what my work looks like in print. Anyone want to meet up for that?
  3. Either the Seattle PI or the New York times messed up as the all the down clues are miss numbered (incremented by one) in the New Times Crossword as printed in the PI.

Ganked from nobodobodon...

Please leave a one-word comment that you think best describes me.

It can only be one word. No more.

Then copy & paste this in your journal so that I may leave a word about you.

Found online:
23 things women should know about men:

  1. Men are NOT mind readers.
  2. Shopping is NOT a sport. And no, we are never going to think of it that way.
  3. Crying is blackmail.
  4. Ask for what you want.

    Let us be clear on this one:

    Subtle hints do not work!

    Strong hints do not work!

    Obvious hints do not work!

    Just say it!
  5. Yes and No are perfectly acceptable answers to almost every question.
  6. Come to us with a problem only if you want help solving it. That's what we do. Sympathy is what your girlfriends are for.
  7. A headache that lasts for 17 months is a Problem. See a doctor.
  8. Anything we said 6 months ago is inadmissible in an argument. In fact, all comments become null and void after 7 Days.
  9. If you won't dress like the Victoria 's Secret girls, don't Expect us to act like soap opera guys.
  10. If you think you're fat, you probably are. Don't ask us.
  11. If something we said can be interpreted two ways and one of the ways makes you sad or angry, we meant the other one
  12. You can either ask us to do something Or tell us how you want it done. Not both.

    If you already know best how to do it, just do it yourself.
  13. Whenever possible, Please say whatever you have to say during commercials.
  14. Christopher Columbus did NOT need directions and neither do we.
  15. ALL men see in only 16 colors, like Windows default settings.

    Peach, for example, is a fruit, not A color. Pumpkin is also a fruit. We have no idea what mauve is.
  16. If we ask what is wrong and you say "nothing," We will act like nothing's wrong.

    We know you are lying, but it is just not worth the hassle.
  17. If you ask a question you don't want an answer to, Expect an answer you don't want to hear.
  18. When we have to go somewhere, absolutely anything you wear is fine. Really .
  19. Don't ask us what we're thinking about unless you are prepared to discuss such topics as baseball, the shotgun formation, or golf.
  20. You have enough clothes.
  21. You have too many shoes.
  22. I am in shape. Round IS a shape!
  23. Thank you for reading this.
