At the Boston response to the ATHF campaign (via MassBackwards)
Not really sure what there is to comment on today.
I’ll skip the easy pot shots that can be leveled against Joe Biden, or the (proposed) California lightbulb ban.
Have people in Boston never seen ATHF?
(If not, they’re really missing out!)
On a positive note–I managed to survive my first day at the gym. There’s definitely a long road ahead for me….but at least the first step has been taken.
Now….off to work on Sunday’s crossword puzzles that I’ve et to get to
Is it odd to act crazy, or to make the most of a zany situation to maintain one’s sanity?
Vista gets released at midnight
Is is time to upgrade?
My computer is more than content w/ XP Professional thank you.
The Sister is actually about to become a Mac convert (or should it be a Mac returnee–as we used Macs growing up at home)
Probably better to at least wait till MS releases SP1 for Vista at a minimum
Came into the office this morning, and didn’t realize that simply being out half a day would leave so much work!
Still a bit behind, but almost totally caught up. That plus the new work that comes in…sometimes it seems like a never ending cycle.
Yet, despite the stress and frustrations, I make the most of it, and try to enjoy myself throughout the day.
Anyone else pretty much ignoring the 2008 Presidential wannabes?
Mazel Tov to my cousin and her new husband, who were married this evening.
Photos and video from teh simcha will probably be online, in less than 24hrs.
BangItOut: Rabbi Yells “Cut!” Over Porn Flick
While this is tongue in cheek humor (no pun intented), will films soon need a stamp of rabinnic approval?
At the Columbia University Dance Marathon
supporting the sister who is a participant
(and fwiw is the only one in the family who can dance.
Also doing digital phogorapohy and on the fly photoshopping because certain relatives forgot to provide advance notice….
Chalk me up as being perplexed…
These “scanners” are the same as the classic “punch-clock”. The only difference being, that instead of a punch-card, each user has a code and their hand measurement is their “card”. The time clock is a computer and does the in/out processing.
These scanners are in use at many a private buisness, and are used by many payroll companies.
They have the advantage, of preventing fraudulent in/out swiping and the need for mainaining individual “cards” for employees.
Sounds like the municipal unions are complaining too much (again).
Just like the TWU who will likely get up in arms again, over the “robotrain“
Spent the past 24-hrs w/ the Brother and Family
(Spent night w/ brother at hotel; no free wifi, then spent day with him)
Many adventures and stories to tell, when time permits.
Yeah, the Mom and the Brother are descending on the Big Apple tomorrow.
Cause for panic? You could say so.
Means I’ve got to really get back to cleaning up around the apartment…something I’ve procrastinated in doing
Don’t have much time to cover it right now, but here’s a start of the stories on Carter at Brandeis:
The Justice has the most coverage
And then there’s this story:
father of Alisa Flatow ’96,
who was murdered in Israel by Palestinian terrorists not long before she
was to graduate from Brandeis, was privately discouraged from attending
the talk at Brandeis by Jimmy Carter out of fear that he’d ask a
question that might embarrass the former President.
There are things some people do, that just perplex me.
Counting the number of standing ovations during the SOTU is one thing.
Counting the amount of times someone blinks?
Just flipped over to the SOTU briefly.
Dick Cheney sitting next to Nancy Pelosi…
They look thrilled to be neighbors this evening
Okay, back to other, more cranial stimulating activities
Today’s random political observation:
Where’s Karl Rove been recently? Haven’t heard too much about the man in recent weeks.
Not that it really matters. Jjust a pointless observation
At long last, President Carter appeared at Brandeis today.
But Carter, who has said he wants to have a “discussion” about his book would neither debate pro-Israel Law Professor Alan Dershowitz nor take any questions from the audience.
Rather, all of the questions that Carter will be answering will have been pre-screened and chosen ahead of time.
For contrast, when some of the speakers who the Campus (Far) Left deamonized, came and spoke, such as Daniel Pipes, David Horowitz and Bernard Lewis, the latter fielded questions from the audience. (And in the case of Pipes and Lewis totally intellectually shut down the Far-Lefties–some of whom are behind the Carter invite) .
Still in my opinion, Brandeis was not the proper forum in which to have Carter speak about his book.

Plans for the State of the Union?
Is it even worth watching? I’ll pass
(from conversation at work)
Co-worker #1: “Oh boy! Heroes is back on tonight, i can’t wait!”
Co-worker #2: “I’m so excited”
Co-worker #1: “You know you [directed at me] should really watch ‘Heroes’”
Me: “No…24 is on”
Co-workers #1 and #2: “Oh come on…it’s such a good show!” (squealing ensues)
Me: “Jack Bauer could crush all of the “Heroes” with his hands tied behind his back….”
