The Thing of the Moment's New Guide to Backing Up Your Data®.

Back up your data at LEAST as thoroughly as you back up your eyeglass frames.

I'd like to appear sort of normal and tell you this was taken at my local Pearle Vision or Lenscrafter, but no, it was taken right on the kitchen counter.

I'm hoarding these because they have been discontinued and they are going to be the glasses I die in.

"They will be out of style by then!" You say.

"I hope SO!" I answer back.

Bus Reader

It's nice to see people reading again. And taking the bus.

It really looks better on black..or bigger. Maybe if you squint.

Hooters by a nose!!!

You Gentle Viewers thought your prayers that I'd lose my hard drive would leave me unable to post like this.

LaCie® 250GB Hard Drives

LaCie copyrights their emails so I can't show you the email response I received from a customer service representative but allow me to share that I was advised to watch my language. :)

But they can't copyright this...

If you need an external hard drive and are looking for one that is loud, runs hots, and then quits with no notice and causes you to lose all 250GB of your data, then RUN out and buy any of the fine line of LaCie hard drives.

My apologies go to Western Digital, which I recently trashed for failing but ONLY after limping in and allowed me to transfer 500GB of data toa new SeaGate drive. I now consider Western Digital to be the brave little soldier of hard drives.

LaCie? The data surrender monkeys.

LaCie = Useless Garbage. You'll thank me.

Oh, This Does Not Bode Well For You TtV Hating Gentle Viewers

It does not bode well at all.

And it's a loooong winter indoors.

I'd tell you this was faked but then I'd have to lie and tell you I know how to make a TtV mask or layer.

A Silly Act of Kindess Remembered ala Lensbaby

I once worked for a Special Education Director named Scott Richardson who was the kindest, most graceful, most dignified, most gentle man I had ever met, even while constantly under seige. The day I told him I was leaving our school district to return to my home and attend Graduate School I noticed this little can of Herb Ox Chicken Boullion sitting on his desk as a paperclip holder. He had wrapped it in scotch tape to, I dunno, shore it up...pass some time?

I thought it so charming and nice that he was using his cast off garbage as office supplies that I asked him if I could have it and he handed it over. Possibly glad to be rid of the thing. Had his wife sent him to work with this can of 25 bullion cubes to provide him with 25 days worth of lunches?

Anyway, When he handed it over I'm sure he didn't think I'd be still using it 15 years later and thinking of him fondly everytime.

jkirlin, Clementine enthusiast, brain surgeon.

Just peel back the Dura Mater here and see if my probe can stir up some old piano lessons or the memory of a summer day long forgotten.

So let me get this straight, you people who eat fruit all the time, these things are SEASONAL? Like you can't buy them all year??

What about our global economy? They must be growing them someplace?? Are we savages??? We have POP TARTS year round! Why not Clementines??
