Great Mouse Great Price

January 24, 2007

I use this mouse at work and love it. If my parents didn’t already have a wireless optical that they don’t use/appreciate, or I didn’t have a laptop with no desk, I would definitely buy this. It’s amazingly pleasurable to use. The deal might only be for today. $39.95 before shipping. Logitech MX 1000.


Routines

January 18, 2007

RoutinesPrepare yourself for some ramblings. I’ll have a more topical post tomorrow. Routines are how we pass time, and how time passes us by. They play a trick on the mind, at least my mind, and alter our perception of reality.

They are a good thing when you’re in the middle of a swim set. Paying close attention to the laps that go by just makes them harder. However, routines can be dangerous at a larger scale. Breadths turn into hours turn into days turn into weeks turn into seasons. Before you know it, it’s January and you haven’t written thank you notes for graduation gifts you received in May. Those seasons turn into years turn into decades.

I’m afraid of letting time in the future slip by like I did the past 8 months. I’ll try to do better when I wake up tomorrow.

I have to cut back my blog reading because everything is a tradeoff.


Michael Cera

Great youtube video with George Michael from Arrested development. Some interesting stories at Buzzfest. You have to have seen the video of Aleksey Vayner.


Some good links

This is a guy living on $1 of food a day. Go to the bottom and start reading upward. He has some good insights, including some on anaorexia.

He led me to a guy who through a series of trades parlayed a paper clip into a house. I might have some more later.
