Good luck on the job interview! :)


Grumpy about snow

I'm not sure at what age my attitude towards snow shifted from "fun" to "impediment".

Probably the time that I had places I actually needed to be.

Nifty addt'l reader

I just found out yesterday that my brother **also** is a regular reader of my blog: he just doesn't always leave a comment.

That's pretty nifty. And gratifying. :)

Highly-rated zombie board game

Based solely on my say-so (as near as I can tell), my brother mail-ordered (or rather, online-ordered) a zombie-based strategy board game called "Last Night On Earth". I read four or five reviews of it online: all were highly supportive, giving it four out of four (and five out of four!) stars.

Here's hoping it shows up at least a few days before the New Year, so we can try it out together...

A little too close to home

This one's a little too close to home. (Online comics -- not cutesy pics of fuzzy cats wearing sunglasses, and etc.)

(The cartoon is XKCD, #512.)

Ani DiFranco comment on religion

Here's a quote from Ani DiFranco (famous folk-ish singer) on religion. It pretty much coincides with what I think. Except for the part about being atheist.

"Well, I'm not a religious person myself. I'm an atheist. I think religion serves a lot of different purposes in people's lives, and I can recognize the value of that, you know, the value of ceremony, the value of community, or even just having a forum to get together and talk about ideas, about morals — that's a cool concept. But then, of course, institutional religions are so problematic."
