Day 66

Apparently my strategy is not working...

Going to see Prince Caspian tonight. I'll let you know how that goes. Or maybe I won't. That ought to keep you on the edge of your seat right there, yep, yep, yep.

Day 64

Grumble, grumble, grumble...

And in other news, I've just now noticed that I've passed the 2-month mark for being here! Seems that the only thing other than familial ties drawing readers here is Jackie Chan and Jet Li... So perhaps if I were mention them more frequently, I would get more visitors? Makes sense to some degree, seeing as I make friends in real life through common interests, thus making friends online should be fairly similar.

So in that vein, I will give you, the reader, this directive: Go see Ironman. I realize that neither Jackie Chan nor Jet Li are in it, but still, a comic book movie that can boast 4 Academy Award nominees (and one winner) as its 4 principal cast members deserves a gander. It also deserves a viewing. And I'm not suggesting that you throw fowl at the movie. Besides, the next major movie from either Jackie Chan or Jet Li looks to be The Mummy 4, which co-stars Jet Li and Brendan Fraser. 'Nuff said.

I'm serious about Ironman though -- it's pretty dang good.

Day 62

Happy birthday to good Edward Lear
Who toasts his 196th year
Though his nonsense well read
Sadly now he is dead
Or else I would buy him a beer.

Apologies to Mr. Lear... Geek points to the first person who figures out what all this drivel means…

Day 55

I had an interesting discussion with a friend during lunch yesterday about religion and politics (yes, things that we're not supposed to discuss during polite lunch conversation, I know), inspired by a book he read about the irrationality of common atheist dogmas. Somehow we related that to Constitutional Constructivism in the Supreme Court. Not really sure how that happened.

Me, on the other hand? I'm reading a memoir of a Princeton University student's attempt to become a Shaolin monk.

Hence why my friend is a lawyer and I'm not...

Day 52

Ladies and Gentlemen, building bookshelves is not rocket science, and finish carpenters are not idiots. My boss, however, seems to believe otherwise...

I've posted every day for a week now! I feel ever so slightly proud of myself.

Day 51

Yes, I am blogging while I am at work.
No, I am not blogging about work.
No, I do not have any work to do.
Ergo, I am blogging while I am at work.

I am bored.

And I'm still getting visits to my profile page without corresponding visits to the blog, so far as the ClustrMap shows. Unless I have readers who have ClustrStealth and can fly under the ClustrRadar. Or all my readers are from the same single spot on the ClustrMap... Which is a possibility...
