Xmas in the 70s seemed warm. Maybe it was the smell of pine or what always seemed like bright sun outside. I liked all the electronic games we got.
SpeakersJul 18, '08
The speakers are good, but it is hard to sit still for hours at a time. I like workshops much better.
WordPressJul 17, '08
So I spent the night getting the basics down of wordpress theme customization and as I figured it is easy, but there were a few hurdles. It was definitely easier than Drupal, and I think this will be my focus of study for a while…
I’m at the typecon conference and a lot of people are talking about how to teach typography in the education forum. My take: Tap into the love of typography students had when they first learned how to write. My kids all scribbled and stuff, but the revelation came when they learned how to write their […]

SwimmingMay 28, '08
So I started swimming. Last night I went 3000 yards in an hour. Not bad for being out of it for a year. I’ve always loved swimming on a certain level. There’s no impact, just a “plodding along” type of thing. People hate it because it’s boring compared to running or biking. There’s nothing to […]
The future of mediaApr 28, '08
I see a singularity in media, and it comes in the form of a special combo visor/glove. Parts of visor can be activated, or it can completely take over your visual space. It acts as your phone, home theater, gaming system, tv screen, etc. This way the visor can enhance the real world or replace […]
ChuckyMar 08, '08
When I was very young, I spent a lot of time at the Steins house: View Larger Map Around the corner was a kid named Chucky. He was a little younger than Matt Stein and me, so we pushed him around. He was really weird. I don’t think his parents lived in that house; I […]
Been a whileJan 17, '08
I need to keep up with this. Sorry for the lag. I need to record all these little things. Eli was fun to watch in Irish Dance today. I love walking home from there, in the dusk, Eli and Nancy running ahead as we walk home. It makes me think I’m in movie or something. […]
BurgersJan 05, '08
They were thin but tough. Next time I will cook them for less time.
BreakfastDec 29, '07
Eli wanted eggs. He asked “Is the yoke a duck?”
Babysitters, hockey, leaves
I spent most of today cleaning the garage, or at least I spent the largest block of definable time cleaning the garage. The kids watched way too much tv. Ever since we got extended cable services, zack n cody and hannah montana have been looping over and over, engaging my kids’ full attention the whole […]
Need a grantDec 27, '07
My idea is so good I know I could get a grant. How do you get an artist grant, anyone?
In Fort Erie, Canada, where I go once a month to deposit a check, there’s a little french fry truck that I always hit up for a medium w/ketchup salt and vinegar. Eli and Nan came this time and got their fry on. Next time I have to remember to get a small, not a […]
Eli's trip to the dentist
So Eli had a run in with the dentist and went from his jolly self to a smear over the course of 1 hour. He has to go back twice; it’s going to be hell getting him back once. I remember going through hell when I was his age at the dentist. After my mom […]
