Oh the Humanity

Hmmm...so the county board of supervisors is thinking about sandblasting Disney Hall.

Dynamite would be a fantastic alternative.

Bungalow Heaven

This is where I want to live.

When I win a million dollars.

And the Least-Intriguing Star Is...

Michael Moore.

I fart in your general direction, Mr. Moore.

We love her anyway.

Alka Seltzer

From Lileks' matchbook of the week, an old Alka Seltzer ad.

How I hate fatigue acid.

California Housing Survey

Here is the actual report.

The most telling result?

"Although 86% of renters in California hold onto the hope of being homeowners someday, only 18% believe it is very likely and 49% somewhat likely that they will find a home they can afford."

Kansas City looks good some days.

Now I'm depressed.

One in Four Californians Consider Moving

How depressing. Especially when you're one of those renters who may not be able to ever afford a house.

Streaming Media

So, as I am forced to use a Mac at work, streaming media doesn't always work as well as it could, especially when Windows Media Player is the conduit.

Case in point - today, MTV and VH1 both started streaming U2's new album. Huzzah! I think, and head on over there to stream to my heart's content. However, I kept getting an error. So, I switched to Safari (the bane of my existence) to see if that would help. I got through the first two songs and it pooted out again and now it won't work at all. Maybe it's a technical issue, and not a problem on my end.

Regardless, Macs are teh suck.

Shabu Shabu

I had it for the first time today. Very tasty, and cheap.

A new luncheon place to put into the rotation.

Now we just have to devise a way to be there for the opening on January 5.

Dog School!

So we made our triumphant return to polite dog society last night. And, might I say, our dog was more polite than most.

$250 well spent, and a happy trainer when we left. She gets a barstool for Christmas.

All is well with the world today.

Getting My Vote On

So I voted for the first time today. Hooray for the democratic process.

Not like it matters in California.

Halloween 2004

So, I think it was another successful party - one passed out, one had to go home in a cab. It doesn't get any better than that. Even if the pinata didn't make an appearance. I'll save that for the party when I invite everyone I HATE. And while we didn't have a houseful, everyone that was there was fun and we met some new people, too.

I often think that I'll never have another party, especially since I don't really like people all that much. But I do have a good time and everyone likes the spinach artichoke dip so I'm satisfied.

Pictures will follow - photographic evidence is always good.
