Crazy Cabby

I was on my way to the Royal York hotel last night for yet another Christmas party, and the cab driver that was taking us definitely had a few loose screws. From the second we got in the cab, he spoke in a casual monotone manner and basically explained to us that Cab drivers are ...

Bush named ‘Person of the Year’

George W. Bush has been named Time Magazine’s “Person of the Year”. When I browse to CNN, you would normally see something like this as the main news article, but it was bumped down to the second most important news article, because the car bombing in Iraq today that killed 40 people took priority. I ...

Bonus payment = Party time

Today our work Christmas bonuses were deposited into our bank accounts. Coincidentally, this afternoon is also our department Christmas party starting at 12:00PM. The tradition every year is to go to the nudey bar after the Christmas party, so I’m not sure if this bonus payment is a blessing or a curse PS: For any ...

Lovely Voicemail

So I get into the office this morning and I have a message waiting. At first I thought it might be something important; usually when I have messages first thing in the morning, something is wrong. I listen to the message, and it’s a buddy of mine impersonating someone we know to make fun of ...

Wilderness Camping with Internet Access

I wonder what the world is going to be like in 5-10 years. With the exponential rate of technological expansion, how will our lives change? In the news today, the United States FCC announced that they hope to allow air travelers to surf the web by 2006. (Link) Being in a technology career, I can ...

My new American friend

I have probably made a new American friend after yesterday’s post. The blog I linked to yesterday was posted on November 10th. There were no comments on his posting as of yesterday evening, so it was posted for a full month with no comments. But since I posted a link, he now has 9 comments ...

An American Attitude

I came across a blog entry this evening that caught my attention. Basically this guy is ranting about terrorists and the awful things they have done. He says “I hate the fact that civilians are being killed. But they were warned, and told to leave.” He also suggested that the solution to the problem is ...

Analysis of Hell

The following is supposedly an actual question given on a University of Washington chemistry mid-term. The answer by one student was so “profound” that the professor shared it with colleagues, via the Internet, which is, of course, why we now have the pleasure of enjoying it as well. Bonus Question: Is Hell exothermic (gives off ...

Auto-Response

At work yesterday, a co-worker that sits in the cubicle next to mine was talking to me. Typically when he’s saying something to me, I can’t hear him over the noise from my fan which is usually on since the floor is very hot normally. So my normal response would be “Oh, yup, cool, mm ...

Men are like Jeeps

In response to the comment from my last posting where I compared men to women, here is an applicable quote from Elaine on Seinfeld: “The female body is a work of art. The male body is utilitarian. It’s for gettin’ around. It’s like a Jeep.”
