I’ve mentioned the Blu-Ray v. HD-DVD war before and the fact that I made a dumb move and purchased a player for the now-dead format (HD-DVD). Congratulations to Blu-Ray; it will be a long time before you see a dime of my money. I will hold on to my soon-to-be HD-DVD paperweight and use it until renting HD-DVDs is no longer an option.
Read Along With Me
Today’s passage from Notes To Myself.
My trouble is I analyze life instead of live it.
To all who have helped me — Thanks.
Coughing And Rough Breathing — What A Joy!
2008 flu, day ten. This stopped being funny days ago. My sleep has barely provided me with enough rest to get through each day. Today I woke up to inflamed nostrils and a cough that has lingered for at least four days. While I did manage to cover five miles last night, it was extremely difficult. Having a hard time breathing might have had something to do with that…
This has been the type of illness that you’d only wish on your greatest of enemies.
If I Woke Up That Must Mean There Is A New Problem In My Life
In the mail yesterday I received a check from the Federal Government. Normally this would be a good thing, but this time it is not because it is for the amount that I sent them in January as part of my estimated tax payment for 2007. Why? Why don’t they just keep the money? I know that come April 15 they will want it all back and will probably attempt to assess me a penalty for not paying is sooner. But I did! Why did they send it back? Why do I have to have yet another thing on my plate to deal with today? I really need to catch a break soon before I go off the deep end (if I haven’t already).

Along with the rest of my life my photography is suffering. I have had little time to shoot, and my Master Plan for digital workflow and backups has been slow to implement.
I wish finding help was as easy as pushing a button.
Book Or Abridged Audio Book: That Is The Question
Recently I found out about the book “Michael Palin Diaries, 1969-1979: The Python Years.” It’s available as a book and an abridged audio book read by Palin. Although the audio book is abridged there is a much better chance that I will find the time to hear the book before I will to read the book.
From what I understand Palin kept a detailed diary of his life (a pre-blogging blogger) and has put ten year’s worth of his writings into this book. You may know about my joy with all of the things that Palin has done post-Python so I’m interested to find out about his professional formative years.
Brother Can You Spare A Yuengling?
Dammit! I should have known that if I didn’t put the Yuengling I am to deliver tonight into my car immediately when I thought about it I’d forget. And I did. Steve, I will make all attempts to leave work early enough to swing home before going to George’s tonight. If I cannot make it home first then the Yuengling’s will be free.
And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
