Welcome to my blog...It's more of an occasional-random-quirky-thought blog or a check-out-this-cool-link blog than one of those this-is-what-i-had-for-breakfast-today-and-these-are-my-feelings-about-life blogs and it's definitely not one of those awful i'm-useful-and-have-important-things-to-say-and-i'm-contributing-to-society blogs. Enjoy.

This Klingon Software Quality Assurance link was sent to me... totally reminds me of the oldie but goodie Real Programmers Don't Use PASCAL, based of course on that classic book: Real Men Don't Eat Quiche... which I own a 1st printing of and cherish dearly
My paper is done and over, but unfortunately, so is reading week. -sigh-

Here is a fun cubicle trick for ya:

While sitting at your desk, lift your right foot off the floor and make clockwise circles with your leg. Now, while doing this, draw the number "6" in the air
with your right hand. Your foot will change direction and there's nothing your feeble mind can do to avoid this behaviour.

So, it's the middle of the night, I'm working on my paper... and where does my mind wander? Well... I'm DJing an event tomorrow (actually, 2 events, now that I think about it) and I'm thinking about what song to play as an 'opener'... and Michael Jackson's Wanna be Startin' Somethin' comes to mind... and then I want to know the age old question... what the hell does "mama se mama sa ma ma coo sa" mean?

I don't generally go looking for things like the Time Cube and this $75 red pen with a "special ingredient for manipulating modern material", but sometimes they find you.

So I went to see when Larry Gonick's History of the Universe IV is going to come out (-sigh- 2006/7) and came across an interesting sfweekly.com article about him.

I still can't believe that DancinDave.com is taken... and a friend just pointed me to another Dancing Dave web page.
