So I’m up here in lovely Morristown, NJ for SQl training this week. As I write this, I’m just finishing up my lab for the day. Yesterday, I realized that I was relatively close to my college friend Erich. He works in NY and lives on the Jersey side, but I didn’t know exactly where he was in relation to my training. So I gave him a call, and luckily, he wasn’t away on business.

Regularly, Jeremy ([info]ianraven) throws out a random lolcat phrase that makes reference to the current situation. Often they are very ‘heady’, and appeal on an higher intellectual level. We had several concerning the midrealm fencers during Pennsic.

It’s the Summer Solstice today.. Ok, that’s misleading.. it’s only the summer solstice in the Northern Hemisphere… which it’s most likely where you’re reading this from…So I guess I’d be more technically correct to wish you a happy June Solstice, or more generically a Happy Solstice!

We’ve been using Google Maps for years now, ever since it was first released. I find the Ajax interface to be very easy to navigate, and I’m happy with the results. One of the great things about Google is that they are always adding new features. The problem is, that sometimes these new features slip in and as a regular user you have no idea. Granted, their new Street View feature (see real images and navigate 360 view at the street level) is getting a lot of news in the past weeks because of privacy issues. However, there are plenty of other features available, and I recently discovered two I didn’t previously know about.

Old Friends, New Families

I received an out of the blue email message the other day from my old friend Sara. Sara and I were friends back in high school. We were in drama together and hung together outside of school as well. We haven’t seen each other in over 10 years, though we did communicate via email for a bit. That’s even fallen off, and I haven’t heard from her in over two years, since she told me she was getting married and I told her we were pregnant with twins!

It’s just seems wrong…

So my friend Jason was just discussing this with me last month. He swears by it, and said how much better it made him feel. I was reluctant to belive him. Jean’s allergist recommended something similar, but it was more of a nasal spray cleaner then a true Neti Pot. Problem is, if you do it wrong, you wind up gagging on the water, or burning your nasal passages.. maybe this instruction video can be used to assist in using the spray. I can only imagine how much crap I have up my nasal passage. As long as a Muscle Man doesn’t fall out, I think I’d be willing to try it.

Baby Hedgehog Anus

Thinking of you this morning Murray.. Here’s an article with pictures of baby hedgehogs.. I wish had some of you for comparison. Though the image above is one of my favorites.. it might not be a hedgehog on a keyboard, but it might be “avatar-worthy”, if only for the gratuitous anus shot.
