Did I accomplish what I set out to do today... Read more
Sunday Sortings, or: Turtles all the Way Down
Sometimes I like to details what I've done. It's empirical, a bottom-up affair. It could be replaced by a numbered or bullet-point list (the chronology being implied by implicit order of the points) ... or even a definition list, a definition te... Read more

Sometimes you treat yourself. To a hot mess sundae!
Oh my ... yes.
You've got an over-qualified cast (as usual), a good script, and meticulous production. Strong and tight plotting... Read more

I. Tim Burton
Somehow last evening Ms. S. and I found ourselves contemplating Tim Burton for a while. We had become deeply dissatisfied with him. Recently we watched 'Dark... Read more
A Simple Sunday
My ebook reader -- iRiver Story HD, now discontinued, but quite functional -- is cluttered.
I'm currently rereading Neal Stephenson's "Snow Crash," which I first encountered durin... Read more
3. Bulk Batches
I made a point of not making too much this Thanksgiving, which means I only made too much by a little bit. That chicken for me and Ms. S.'s father? Not consumed at all Thursday, b... Read more

I have a c... Read more
1. Wednesday evening I prepared the desserts -- apple pie and pumpking pie -- so I'd have more time available to me this morning and early afternoon. Plus, pies are best if they can sit and while and, ... Read more
A Midweek Memory
