Gimme...gimme a break.

Hey anyone else notice self checkout animation lady has a great ass? Whatever. You will from now on. "Wow the dog was right".


I am so with you on this one, with the exception of the "animation lady" as I missed that at the check out. I am sure that the self check out saves some labor, but it seems to exact a cost from our collective psyche. Have you tried meditation? Perhaps I should try more.

An experience that changed my life and that makes me think that the person sitting here at this moment writing these lines is a very different person from the one who wrote the texts that make up this book, and at the same time that it is the same person.”

What can I say, I'm on a Helen Keller kick today.

Just a totally random one for today, from my bud-ie Albie:

If you're calling into a radio talk show and need to use a phrase such as "no, I mean..." or "I'm just saying..." more than once, you really have no idea what you're talking about.

I realize that this is the most popular version of the quote, but I believe Einstein actually said this:
Intellectuals solve problems that would have been better to prevent.

That, at least, is the version in Stanley Cohen's My Time with Einstein. And Cohen's version rings truer for me, for many reasons, not least of which is that Einstein understood, perhaps better than anyone, that his genius created problems the world has yet to solve.
