Go West

Well, I’ve had a LONG dry spell…  but I have a good excuse: moving 2300 miles, starting a new job, and trying to keep up with a 5-week crammed-in summer course for my Master’s degree.

I’m now officially a software test engineer for a graphing calculator company…  very slick job and I’m loving it!  I may have finally found a job that I would do for free (if I were independently wealthy, that is).

Anyhow, not really in the mood to wax long-winded, but I must post the following video.  I’ve already shared it with a few people, but it’s one of those things that is traumatic and can only be ameliorated by infecting others!!!  🙂

A Cravat Caveat

I recently noted an article dealing with a dress-code for academia…

and then came across this.  It almost (almost, I said) makes ties worth it…  for a day or so, I figure.

OMG Ponies!

So wherefore the title? It’s a convoluted and, ultimately, silly story. But here it goes. I’m reading this article on the undersea cables that recently were cut in the Middle East because, although I’m not typically a conspiracy theorist, I must admit that it seemed awfully coincidental that these large undersea (presumably, pretty deep undersea) cables just accidentally were cut in close proximity both in time and space. So I’m reading along, minding my own, when I come across this seemingly out-of-place reference to OMG Ponies.

And I figured it was my civic duty to make sure that all my loyal readers (yes, all three of you) were up-to-date on the latest slang, or leetspeak, or whatever it’s called these days. 😉

For some reason I am reminded of the quote, “There are more things in heaven and earth…”

somehow I doubt this is what those taxpayer dollars were really intended for. 😉

Better than Alka-Seltzer!
