I’m not blogging here anymore. Join me over on my LiveJournal. (Same great blogging taste, but now with 300% more turtle.) Lately I’ve been blogging there from behind a friends wall. I may return here some day, but probably not for a long while.

If you aren’t already my friend on LJ, add me or drop me an email or somehow tell me who you are and, assuming I know you, I’ll add you back. Don’t be offended if I decline to add you; there’s a reason for the friends-only lock.

If you don’t have a LiveJournal account, I think you can still log in with an OpenID (although I frankly have no clue how well — or if — it works).

Calling Iowa

I’m calling Iowa for Edwards. Yes, I realize they won’t be voting caucusing whatever-they-call-nominee-picking until tomorrow, but Barack Obama and Andy Dufresne have convinced me that hope is a good thing.

The Starbucks Effect

Too bad Barnes & Noble and Wal-Mart don’t have the same effect on independent bookstores and small shops.

Note to Self

Mark the calendar to stock up on GE Reveal lightbulbs in 2011. I hate CFLs.

Orange (September 2004 – December 2007)

Orange lost his fight with HLLE (link not for the squeamish) this morning. He was three years old, measured 14″ from lip to tail and was the smartest fish I’ve ever met.

In a move sure to annoy Republic and similar groups, Queen Elizabeth II has opened her own YouTube channel. This comes just ten years after she launched her own website.

Of course, historian David Starkey still thinks she’s an uneducated philistine. I doubt Republic would strenuously disagree.

Flow Chart

Some of my charts for Evidence didn’t turn out much better than this one.

In case you were wondering, UPS Delivery Intercept actually does work.

Why I Don’t Belong to MoveOn Anymore, Part LXXVII

Campaigns like this.

Anyone have a petition supporting the expansion of nuclear power I can sign?
