As you know, I was on holiday for one week, two weeks ago. Therefore, I have spent the last week catching up on the thousands of articles in my aggregator. I will admit that I may have marked large sections as “read” without actually reading them, but these are a few that really sparked my interest. Perhaps you too, will find them interesting:
- I’m embarrassed to say that I have somehow lost my own absentee ballot so I was not able to vote this time around as absentee ballots were due on October 31st (truthfully, this happens almost every election. Where does that pesky ballot end up?) This makes me especially upset when I read things like “Bush Legalizes Martial Law — what Constitution?.” Obviously I can’t afford to loose that ballot. We need to get out of this mess before it’s too late. Oh, and I love this article from The Onion.
- Apparantly Apple is trying to promote a YouTube style popularity of it’s iMovie software through this insomnia film festival contest. I love the idea, but I also love sleep.
- I seem to be developing some sort of early onset Alzheimer’s. I wish I was joking, but I am actually kind of worried about it. This week I went to pick up my cute, pink lunchbox from my desk and it wasn’t there. How odd? I think to myself, I remember carrying it over this morning, I can feel the handle in my hand. I can see myself picking it up. But it’s not here? How can that be? Then I go around the office asking everyone if they’ve seen my lunch (which kind of sounds like I’m accusing them of taking my lunch), and eventually resort to buying lunch in the canteen. Hours later, back at home, I see my lunch happily resting on the table where I left it in the morning. I assure you, this is not an isolated incident. Thankfully, it appears that there is a solution in sight.
- You know I have a secret desire to travel in space (and meet the aliens, etc, etc). Well now I’ll know exactly what to wear. Those trendy Japanese. They always know what’s cool before the rest of us….
- Remember back when you were a kid and making a fort out of couches and blankets was the coolest thing in the world? Well, cardboard boxes add a new, more challenging dimension. This combines my child-like glee for anything made out of large boxes, with Alex’s never-ending interest in mazes. I think we should make one. But where can I get all those boxes?
- I know I said I want to travel to Iran, but it wasn’t because I need a kidney. Yikes.
- If the government is doing it, wikis must really be catching on.
