I've been thinking...I've been disappointed by food a lot lately. Especially in DC. The only meal that made me think "hey this is really pretty good" was a burrito from Baja Fresh, which was only a little worse than the great stuff at Boca Grande, and Fuddruckers at Dulles airport, which was really fantastic for some reason....good beef, some fresh condiments you pick out yourself, lettuce tomato all that, toasted buns, and really good fries. It was a great end to that week.
Also loved Fuddruckers. Especially when you can get "Mother Fuddrucker's Mustard".
Movie Quote of the Moment
"You know when you really want something, you close your eyes and wish for it really hard? God is the guy that ignores you."
--The Island. Not bad! A bit long and hamfisted at times, but a twist on the Utopia/Dystopia idea I hadn't seen before.
Interview Quotes of the Moment
"Sometimes I think we're on this world for three reasons: to be useful, to tell each other stories and to collect stuff."
--Future Forecaster Paul Saffo in this SFGate interview. I also like the idea that "The curse of cyberspace is that everything we want to preserve will get lost and everything we want to lose will be preserved."
It's a very good interview, wellworth the time, though I wonder why things like climate change and terrorism don't enter into the discussion more.
