If the left engine falls off on this plane, I’ll be the first to know about it. Dang thing is right next to my left ear here in 32A
DFW airport again. Just a couple more hours and we’ll be home! Have lost all sense of time. What day/year is it?
packing up to go back home. Mississippi has been fun, though at times surreal. MS is such a bizarre place. Or maybe it’s just my strange fam
@apelad We are in Collinsville. A little bit N. of Meridian. By Alabama and the home of Peavey amps and Sela Ward! i.e., middle of nowhere.
we drove through all over rural Mississippi today. Wait… I forgot… It’s all rural Mississippi. At least my Mom has broadband. :-]
kids have been here in Mississippi for less than a week and already they slip into BAD southern/hick accents on demand. We is DOOMED, y’all.
iPhone 1st blush: Holy crap, this thing is like M-A-G-I-C! My life shall forever be changed for the better. 2nd pass: Where’s copy/paste?
Reha and the kids got me an iPhone! Nerd Nirvana in full swing now. And Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone!

just landed @ DFW. i need a breath mint somethin’ fierce.
Is it wrong that I’m playing the the kids’ christmas presents before wrapping them?
Completely freaked out by utterly silent house. Going to start yelling randomly so it seems like the kids are still here.
hmm. hang out and install OS X Server or go home and play video games? Which incredibly anti-social and nerdly venture to choose?
My oldest daughter cracks me up: http://tinyurl.com/yrb2os
great googily-moogily there is an enormous amount of snow out there. At least a foot. Remind me again why I didn’t buy a snow blower?
@blurb @FiddleyGomme I was crossing Main Street and saw/felt that lightning/thunder. And the snow/hail is painful. It’s getting kinda nasty.
Font Book in a tool of Satan, sent here to DESTROY us. Seriously people: Linotype Font Explorer. It’s awesome. And free.
I’m a “free” man as wife and kids left for MS, before I join them on Sun. Am now officially lonely, bored and basically, pretty pathetic.
just named a new layer in Illustrator “stringy red bits that I HATE HATE HATE” it might be time for me to head home for the night.
invited office visiting son to go get lunch with me: “No thanks, I’m pretty busy here. Working.” nice. dissed and ditched by my progeny.
The OEOB fire this morning. Not an accident! http://tinyurl.com/2e4mv4 OK, technically I made it all up. Except that Cheney really is a ‘bot
@Moltz Ha! Probably. Lucky kid gets to play with Legos all day. Though that whole “I can’t breathe!” thing is a bit of a downer, I suppose.
Jonah (my 9 year old asthmatic and ADD man-child) is here @ work with me today. Luckily he’s pretty cute and, when properly medicated, quiet
cooling my heels and waiting for the furnace guy to show up. “cooling” being the operative word there.
yay! my daughter is doing her haiku movie reviews again! http://www.squidwoman.com/?p=50 nagging her incessantly has finally paid off.
@FiddleyGomme yeah! that was fun. def. we should do that again. Although my waistline might appreciate someplace with a salad. :-]
Scariest thing you can hear in staff meeting: “I had a dream about you last night! We should talk afterwards!”
Hetero Man Crush for the Day: John Knoll (co-creator, with his brother Thomas of Photoshop) Yes, I’m having a very “photoshoppy” day.
4 year old daughter can hum along note-perfect to NPR’s Morning Edition theme music. This is either really good and really bad.
found baking supplies. seriously thinking about dropping all other responsibilities and making some cookies. i *may* be a wee bit excited.
pots found. and barly. and otter pops. we are having barly and otter pops for our 1st new kitchen dinner.
ready to cook first meal in the new kitchen. except for the niggling problem of not knowing where pots, pans or food are.
Did the elliptical trainer instead of running on the treadmill at lunch. Remembering now why I hated Geometry. Ellipses are mean and EVIL.
@talibanbarbie bless you
My name is Jon and I know I’m eons late to the game, but I’d like to say for the record: “I like the new Radiohead” Thanks. Have a nice day.
wife is going to Denver for a quick overnight biz trip. Denver is so lucky.
@FiddleyGomme exactly :-]
snuck a line about “adopting babies” into an email to my wife. if you see an explosion in downtown SLC, it’s OK, it’s just my wife’s head.
