Completely random junk mail

No relation to publishing or nuclear medicine, and we sure don't mix anything here.

Spooky at the vet

Good thing about Spooky is you can always rely on him for a fecal sample.

Spent ten minutes figuring out how to sync audiobooks from iTunes to iPhone

Damn it, Apple! Why do you have one folder for books in iTunes then split books and audiobooks in two sections in the iPhone sync screen? Burned ten minutes trying to figure out how to sync audiobooks for a friend before realizing her little Macbook wasn’t showing the bottom half the sync screen.

You know your marriage is off to a bad start when you roll the Honeymoon Dice and get "sleep outside."

Multi-grain rice bowl @ Lotus Restaurant

More of a plate than a bowl. Rice was as much bean as grain. String beans and fried "fish" were excellent.

Mark the time: at 10:28AM, Steve Jobs announces free Bumpers

10:29AM "We think this has been so blown out of proportion... it's fun to have a story, but it's not fun on the other side. So here's what we're going to do to make our users happy. The first part is the software update, that fixes the way the bars report and other bugs, that's out now. Second, people said the bumper fixes everything... 'why don't you give everybody a case'? Okay -- we'll give you a free case."


From Apple’s Antennagate press conference:

Truly brilliant move by Apple showing off their "Cerebro" chamber. CR tests in a shed? We test in The Matrix.

From Apple’s Antennagate press conference:


Steve Jobs: "We've been working our butts off..." - Clearly. Have you seen the man's butt lately? Neither has anyone else.

Upon learning the Droid X marketing tagline is "Are you man enough for this phone?"

Excerpt from my comment left on Gizmodo’s review of the Droid X: “…is that really their tagline? Were the Star Wars-licensed name, Matrix-style backgrounds, and tough guy voiceovers really not enough to keep women away that they had to specify gender in the tagline? What's next? They going to measure your dick before you can buy?”

Things I can't unlearn: a tampon can be any absorbant mass stuffed into a body cavity

So if a paramedic says he’s going to stuff a tampon into your open chest wound, it’s cool. Thanks Susan.

Do tampons really need to be described as "vaginal"?

Just analyzed a paper dealing with imaging an inserted vaginal tampon. Not sure what’s more disturbing: the images I cannot unsee or the fact a tampon is regularly described in medicine as being “vaginal”. No one uses the term “hand glove” or “foot sock”, so why… wait, that’s just one more thing I don’t want to learn.

Broke down and bought a Bumper

Was going to wait it out, but as the Apple genius agreed, the edges on the iPhone 4 are uncomfortable. Also, turns out people pay money for SIM cards on eBay, like the 40 Apple gave me.
