Month: August 2006


So I’ve been pulling 60+ hour work weeks in anticipation of launching the big project I’ve been doing since May. It’s supposed to happen September 1, and I’ll be able to disclose things then. Anyway, that’s why I haven’t been here lately.

I am currently in Charlotte though, as we came here to meet our new niece and nephew twins. I also took Gray to see The Wiggles last night, which was a monumental event for him. That would have been like me going to meet Darth Vader when I was his age.

Oh, then this morning, we went to Discovery Place in ‘uptown’ Charlotte, which is a big museum for kids. They had a movie exhibit with props from Star Wars, which was pretty cool. At one point, after gazing in awe at the Speeder Bike from Return of the Jedi, we turned around and there was a real-life stormtrooper looking at us. Then there were 3 more. Then appeared a Biker Scout and a TIE Fighter pilot.

And what happened next? Darth Vader came around the corner. Man, that was great. And Gray is 3. This event seemed to hit him harder than The Wiggles last night, and he has been talking about giving Darth Vader a high-5 all day.

Anyway, being a grad of WWC, I though this was interesting.

I Love The Series Of Tubes

The series of tubes known as the Internets by our nation’s educated leaders, never ceases to amaze me.

Today I learned that there have been over 485 user comments and reviews of Tuscan Whole Milk, 1 Gallon, 128 fl oz on, a fact that amuzed me. The way people latch onto things like this, then spend a lot of creative time and effort to contribute to its longevity, make the Internet such a novel piece of human existence. Take, for example, this quote from the Tuscan Milk reviews:

Jug of Milk, who made thee?
Dost thou know who made thee?
Gave thee life, & bid thee feed
The children & lay o’er the cereal;

Gave thee whitest of white color;
Softest velvet taste, smooth, and soothing;
Gave thee such a pleasant after-taste,
Making sleep to soon over-take?

Jug of Milk, who made thee?
Dost thou know who made thee?

Jug of Milk, I’ll tell thee,
She is called by her name,
For she calls herself Elsie.
She is meek, & she is mild;
She is as dumb as a box of rocks.

I a child, & thou a bowl of cereal,
We are called to use her milk.

Tuscan Whole Milk, 1 Gallon, 128 fl oz , God bless thee!
