QotD: Motorcycles

Question: Have you ever driven a motorcycle? My Answer: No - the things scare me. They're called "donorcycles" by ER workers for a reason, I imagine. I don't even take my scooter out when it's raining. This question was prompted when, on the way back from golfing today, I saw a guy on a crotch […]

Kerry on Iraq

Today I watched the Kerry on Iraq "documentary." My dad says "believe none of what you read and half of what you see," and since this is a documentary and not "real life," I'm placing it a little further towards "what I read" and not "what I see." I think that changing your mind is […]

QotD: Cars

Question: How did you purchase your car? Did you finance through the dealer, buy new or used, etc.? My Answer: I bought new, and traded in the two-year-old model that I'd had for one year. I financed through the dealer - a mistake as I now realize it given the interest rate I've got - […]

Golf Ball Prices

Golf ball prices have never been cheap. I used to play the Titleist DT line - back when the DT was a wound, liquid-center ball with a surlyn cover - because a dozen only set me back $19.99 on sale, or $24.99 in a pinch. That price compared favorably to the Titleist Professional or the […]

20 Political Points Meme

I missed this yesterday, but I thought I'd take a stab at it now as people have been asking me how I really feel about certain things. 1. I have never voted for a Democrat in my life. True. I haven't ever really voted for any local elections, having only voted for representatives, senators, and […]

QotD: AirPort Express

Question: Do you have an AirPort Express? My Answer: I do now! It's attached to the stereo in my living room. You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your blog.

The world has seen it time and time again: taking away the gun rights of the general population increases violent crime rates. Why? Because criminals will always have guns, and if they know the general population is unarmed, well, then that just makes it all easier: Australians spent at least half a billion dollars to […]

Guess What I’ve Got

Guess what José brought me today?

Napoleon Bomb

Bill may have liked Napoleon Dynamite, but I thought the movie was a bomb. I laughed at exactly one scene - the election speech dance scene - and only because it the dance was so well and unexpectedly performed that it caught me off guard. I didn't feel like laughing at the shoving of tater […]


This is exactly the kind of thing I think that I hate most about President Bush: They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we. I don't like that we have a President who can't say "nuclear" properly, or one who can't get the "fool me […]

QotD: Katie

Question: What do you think of the debate? My Answer: I hope that Katie Jones sticks it to the Tarbox. Not to diminish what happened to Ms. Tarbox, but what she (via her lawyer) seem to doing to Katie Jones are quite deplorable in and of themselves. Rename the book. Let Ms. Jones alone. […]

Golf Blisters

I went to the driving range to hit some golf balls today. I've gotta build up my blisters (and later, calluses), after all. I slowed down my swing a little bit and checked the massive slide forward I was making with my hips. "Turn, don't slide" got me to a nice, soft, high fade. Most […]

We're working through the German translation for PulpFiction and we've hit a sticking point: there seems to be no adequate German word for "subscription" (or "subscribe"). The French word for "subscription" is "abonnement." It's the same in German, but it doesn't quite fit. Any German speakers out there (and be aware that Andy is from […]

QotD: Dates

Question: Have you ever set something up in advance of a date in order to escape? My Answer: No - though I have been the caller in many instances. I never really dated. Like, ever. I think I've been on, oh, five dates in my lifetime perhaps? You are encouraged to answer the Question of […]


Currently, the individual pages on this blog do not validate. I blame MovableType for a lot of it. I'm trying to use XHTML 1.1 (and the MathML specs because MT insists on using "target="). I'm sure I could fix a few things here and there, but I'll never get rid of, say, the "valign" crap. […]
