Oy, weird, I just remember I had a dream last night where I was going to kill myself at A dinner party for my 29th or 30th birthday, had my head in a noose and everything for a while, but then I decided not to. I said to the party "they say a lot of people who attempt suicide just want the attention... and I certainly wouldn't put that past me!"

Reminds me of one of my favorite Simpsons clips...this clip was one of the more useful ones to have at hand at work, along with this one. (Hey, it's easy to dehydrate when you''re codemonkeying--thank heavens that job offered free softdrinks. Actually, I kid. Free softdrinks aren't such a hot idea.)

Quote of the Moment
"No computer has ever been designed that is ever aware of what it's doing, but most of the time, we aren't either."
--Marvin Minsky. I added this one to my mortality guide, it's a good reminder that our flavor of consciousness isn't all we crack it up to be.
