lately my "seven deadly sin" of choice has been gluttony. i have turned into an eating machine that rivals any great white shark. yesterday a pizza was my victim. the poor thing never stood a chance. i was so stuffed at dinner from it, i barely had room for my late night pop tart - hehe - the key word being "barely" - i love pizza. what an odd post this is turning out to be. i swear i am not intoxicated. i went online just now to check out the friday five - but guess what - it's only thursday. so, at a loss for a post now, you get to read how much i love pizza. i think it's a characteristic of software developers to love pizza. i realize a lot of people like pizza - but software developers seem to transcend that - never tiring or growing out of that.

have a happy and safe fourth, y'all!

go lance - kick some cul!

"Chinese obsession with the religious leaders of Tibet has taken on strange proportions at times. Ordinarily, a man such as Gyalpo, who spent most of his life in Tibet, then in prison for listening to tapes of the Dalai Lama, then in India, would not be familiar with the late American entertainer Phil Silvers.

But when a British tourist visited the Tibetan city of Gyangste in 1987 and walked the streets wearing a T-shirt with a photo of Sgt. Bilko, Chinese guards immediately assumed it was a photo of the Dalai Lama and tried to arrest her."

from an article in the pittsburgh post-gazette

seriously, though, please remember the plight of the tibetan people...

i received an invitation to my upcoming high school reunion (which one? hey, a guy has the rights to some secrets). and i have to say, i'm not excited. it's not as though i had a terrible time in high school - i had probably an average experience. it's not like i hate reuinions - i attended our two previous ones (hint to which one this is) and had fun. it's not even the stereotypical feelings of inadequacy that causes folks in every cheesy tv show and movie to lie about there accomplishments as their life is insufficiently impressing - a la remy and michelle (a. my life IS impressive enough, b. i couldn't care less about imressing anyone).

it's more like, uh, who cares about high school anymore - give it a rest - who - at my age - still identifies with their high school experience - guess i'm turning into a curmudgeon

on perhaps a related note, i've noticed i've been listening to different music these days. less serious - more entertaining. perhaps i simply want a pleasant soundtrack as i slip towards dotage. or perhaps with my recent hard time, i just wanna rock and have fun. but bands i wouldn't have given a second look at, i find myself enjoying (train, for example( who btw, i saw at last years outside music festival and found them suprisingly good - esp. their version of aerosmith's dream on - perhaps that's what started flipping me)) - along with classic rock, 70's jazz fusion, etc...

on a semi-related note to the perhaps related note - i heard dido's new single - album due end of september - sounded very much like i'm no angel - a cd i loved. the single was very very good - about time, there, missy! no unpleasant suprises like jewel's recent effort.

...and speaking of misunderstood song lyrics, the guess who's american woman is clearly an anti-american song - anti-us government - not about women at all, unless you want to count ms. liberty - so i find it suprising that classic rock stations keep blaring it away in these hyper-patriotic times...
