got some more rain last night and today. pounded this afternoon. more! more!
off to do errands, and do my weekendly visit to border's.
overheard this conversation, just a snippet:
"... i love you so much, i'd embalm you, like lenin."
"i didn't know yoko ono keeps john around!"
international blog meetup day.
introspection: "go write in your blowge."
and jarango, i like his style. a panamanian in virginia! "question authority, practice compassion, enjoy your martini." another person happy with xp, making me contemplate building an arstechnica 'hot rod' and moving all my programming over to pc.
the hermetic copybook looks interesting. this sounds like my early 20's, pitching woo. ah, the things we do when smitten.
if you're going to blogcon, consider shavehoopty.
nerdmonkey has some photo galleries up of hiking and backpacking trips. well, since everywhere in new mexico and colorado seems closed, i can live vicariously, can't i?
time to do some random surfing.

mother jones: the rough beast returns. discussing the wave of student anti-semitism at san fran state ... and beyond. it seems our young are not being taught the nature of dogma, the principle of falsifiability, or how to engage in simple intelligent discourse ... nor how to dissent without insults, threats or violence.

ny times: live like a vanderbilt. i knew i should have been a blasted lawyer ...
ny times: "la pentagate." in which the french display an almost american taste for conspiranoia. evidence of american 'cultural imperialism?'
santa fe new mexican: woman jogger sexually assaulted by two men. *two* men. that makes self-defense even harder. would mace, pepper spray, or even a dog or two help? with two assailants, and unknown weaponry ... i have doubts.
santa fe new mexican: glass, not grass. yep, we're that desperate.
reuters: the black hole of productivity. dialup at home, broadband at work? this article discusses how businesses are using software to curtail 'playtime.'
