There's a Homer Simpson quote I've been thinking of:
When it comes to compliments, women are ravenous blood-sucking monsters always wanting more . . . more . . . MORE! And if you give it to them, you'll get plenty back in return.
Though lately, substitute "Kirk" for "women" and "free time for goofy projects" for "compliments".

--Flight of the Conchords, Hiphopopotamus vs. Rhymenoceros

Quote of the Moment
"jazz is its own propaganda."
--Willis Conover, quoted in a 1962 LOOK article on him and his Voice of America jazz program that was very popular in Communist Europe.

Reading some '62 LOOK magazines, a nice followup to the Bryson Thunderbolt book. Winning article title: "HAITI: A sad, sad neighbor"
LOOK ad slogan: "Make It Coffee. Make It Often. Make It Right". Also, forgot that "magic marker" was a brandname, ala Kleenex.
Other LOOK ad notes: Bell shilling self (part of "the prosperity of the nation") Also, light sodas and beers are showing up.
Sunday MIT Puzzle Hunt prep, like 2/3 of the people had iPhones (also macbooks) Miller's B'day dinner, 3 or 4 Android G1s. Interesting.
After over a year, the experiment is over: time to switch the iPhone back to AM/PM- I just wasn't changing my thinking to 24 hour time.
Got my Todo "Today or Overdue" list down to < 10 for the first time in like a month, sheesh.
