Last year I won $60 in the office Survivor pool. I’m looking to repeat. If you’re interested in joining the game this year ($10 buy-in), e-mail me. The season starts September 19. Here are the cattle.
I know the feeling.
It freaks me out when I’m listening to a CD and finish a song, then click over to the radio and they’re playing the same song I was just listening to. Makes me worry that somehow the radio people are keeping tabs on me via a heretofore unknown technology. This was the song. Two fun facts: Porn star Ron Jeremy actually produced the video for this song, and a spoken Richard Pryor sample can barely be heard if you crank up the volume during the first few seconds of the tune.

Nice. ZDNet USA is too lame to archive old articles, but ZDNet Japan is not. Dig my review of something or other from 1998.

True post office exchange of the day.
Clerk: The total is $5.10.
I hand over a $20 bill.
Clerk looking confused: Do you have anything smaller? Like a five or a six?
Realization of the day: if our cable TV provider were to join them, we would have no utilities being serviced by a solvent company (joining phone, electric, and gas providers — all bankrupt).
It is not a noodle.
My father does this for all his neighbors and he’s happily stayed out of jail. Imagine the prison tats…
Sight of the day: One-legged woman trying to cross a busy downtown street, not at a crosswalk.
The nagging pain behind tooth #23 has taken me to the dentist three times already, every time with the same diagnosis: there is nothing wrong with you. Another “I don’t see anything there” today. Now it’s off to the periodontist (gum doctor) to see if he can figure it out. Grand.

My birthday is coming up. I like Style K the best.
