Subject Line Confessions

Hmm, an annoying thing about emails from the plebians I notice when getting into work today: the subject line is used as their personal stage for melodrama and suffering. I get emails with subject lines like "whish i hadn't" and "Keyboard, when?". It's humorous because I can hardly tell these emails from the spam messages with subjects like, "not work" and "found it here".

Speaking of which, hilarious spam subject line of the day: "They overcame ED!"
I picture this blown up to 76 pt font sizes on the front page of the newspaper, all 1940s style with a picture of a sailor dipping his woman and kissing her underneath, tickertape falling in the background.

Musical Addictions

Currently listening to Coldplay's Swallowed in the Sea over, and over, and over, and over...
It's warm and inviting.

A list of awesome

1. Sandstone canyon hikes in Icebox Canyon outside of Vegas.
3. Keane - Under the Iron Sea
4. Back to the Future Part 3
5. Harper's

There's this phenomenal article in the current issue of Harper's about the battle over Natural Time vs. Scientific Time (Time by the sun and rotation of the Earth vs. Time by the atomic clock). A group of American scientists and politicians are trying to switch the World's entire standard time over to the Atomic Clock. This sounds like a good idea at first until you realise how much this would fuck with Astronomy, national economies, and our very idea of time representing the rising and setting of the sun itself. Me, I'm with Natural Time.

I really want some lush, green topographic maps for my room. Maybe something from Oregon/Washington or the Colorado section of the Rockies. Mmm, acurately graphed verdant hillsides.

6. Green Tea, particularly in my simple white mug.

The cobwebs and rusty gears

I was going to post about something, I had just thought of it this morning but now I can't remember. It was really good too.

What a wonderful way to start off a blog!

Here I am

I find it difficult to bring my thoughts together into something resembling a rant or point, so this will most likely be a blog of random thoughts and musings.
