Driving the boys to school this morning, I started thinking about all the ins and outs of driving in central Pennsylvania. I’ll try to avoid clichés and stereotypes, but sometimes they’re just too true (incidentally, that’s HOW they became stereotypes and clichés).

The Amish Horse and Buggy: This may seem to be an obvious nuisance, but it’s not the horse and buggy that I have a problem with. On the whole, the Amish that travel the roads where we live are very courteous and competent buggy operators. It’s the morons between me and the buggy that cause the problem. This is the group of people who are AFRAID to pass the buggy. In the absence of a steep hill or sharp curve in the road, the Amish expect to be safely passed. It’s how we share the road here in God’s country. It’s the cowards blocking up traffic behind the buggy that aggravate…

Bananas in the Falklands

isbn: 0140289208 has been name checked here and there (my blog), and eventually i found a copy that my library could obtain.  It deals with the tricky issue of rules to say music or systems, and spends the last section of its time to computer ai, back in 1973 this was new.

An interesting but perhaps flawed attempt at the meaning of life.

November 17, 2011

I’ve read enough comic books and watched enough movies based on comic books that I think I can teach someone how to be a successful villain. So, to quote the Joker in Dark Knight, Here . . . we . . . go!

First off, you don’t have to be a supervillain. No need for a giant head or a genetically modified body. Seriously, have you considered the problems with having a huge, spiked body? Think of the furniture you will ruin. Not to mention the need to be constantly naked.

Second, you need reliable minions. (Also, quick tip, don’t call them minions. Follow Walmart’s lead and call them associates.) This means good pay, a flexible work schedule, paid vacations and holidays, overtime, sick time, and most importantly, health and dental insurance. They are going to get hit by things like shields and stun rays. They need to know broken…

Thinking Out Loud

We went on vacation this past weekend with some friends for Andrew’s birthday, and it reminded me of something. I really like my husband.  Don’t misunderstand me, I absolutely am in love with him; but I also really like him.

Our lives are so busy on a daily basis with him studying so much and me having long hours that we don’t get very much quality time.  But this vacation reminded me that I really need to make more of an effort to spend some qt with this man that I love so much.

And so that is one reason why I am going to a documentary tonight that I don’t feel particularly feel compelled to watch after a 12 hour shift. But he is worth it.

I really love my husband.
