Well it was a nice weekend, resting and relaxing (if you can count hosting fifty sixteen year olds relaxing :), but it's Monday night and I have a maximally busy week ahead. In fact, I have a maximally busy two weeks ahead, bisected by the Solvang Double next Saturday, and this following the 508 last weekend and a busy last week. Whew. Anyway it's all good, although blogging may be intermittent...
If you think the Nobel Peace Prize is as preposterous as I do (and believe me, it was preposterous long before it was awarded to Barack Obama for doing nothing; take the fact that it was awarded to Yasser Arafat for being a terrorist, for example) then you will enjoy this: for the Nobel Peace Prize, a better idea. (The punch line, courtesy of an article in Time Magazine; it should have gone to nuclear weapons. Which makes sense when you think about it.) My own vote would be for the Seawolf submarine, for sheer coolness.
Did you know where HTML and hypertext came from? Xanadu, of course...
And so this fireplace has been named the most beautiful object. Well it is pretty cool, but I don't know how it compares to a Seawolf submarine... and I do know how it compares to Olivia Newton-John :)
Live in the Vast Plane: "Why is it that laptops and the internet have been around for a generation and yet the infrastructure we live in still doesn’t support them? I’m talking primarily about travel... it’s bizarre to be in an airport and see business travelers scanning the scene hungrily - not for food, but for electrical sockets." This is so true. It's true inside airplanes, too; give me WiFi and power, please. (Give me Virgin America every time, for this very reason.)
