I like me some turbinado

I'm turning into such a sugar snob. Refined white sugar tastes as
artificial to me as the fake stuff. Now I need raw or nothing.

Now my pen is REALLY broken

Yet the pen tip, eraser, and side button all still work. Guess I can
just super glue it back together.

At least these guys aren't wasting money on office décor.

Contemplating bates numbering

Thinking about rebooting the filing system at work with bates numbering so I can replace sorting hard and soft documents with tracking in a hyperlinked spreadsheet. Just run through a printer for automatic numbering, enter in the spreadsheet, scan to PDF, and add to the end of the filing. Sounds complicated, but it should eliminate my paper filing and, therefore, save time.

Early B-day present

Must get a red bow for Homer. Thanks Susan.

NOT my new monitor

Why does our receptionist merit a way better PC than I do? I do PDF
editing and image manipulation, for Pete's sake.

Tulips and garlic

The tulips I planted in autumn are coming up nicely around the big
tree. I think the garlic I planted alongside them worked in keeping
the squirrels from digging up the bulbs.

One full day with my iPhone

Closing out a full day in DC with 10% battery on my iPhone. Did some
mapping. Blogged some photos. Sent some email. Definitely need an
external battery pack if I were to listen to music too but otherwise
it made it through.

Mom don't know how to eat lobster

Not a sandworm or graboid

Working from the gem museum

A permission request for two months away does not merit sending me a
