I just heard my first piece of Holiday Musak today, the local Safeway was playing White Christmas. Ugh! Wait until after Thanksgiving, people!!! (Tho interestingly, while researching the song on Wikipedia, I just learned that Bing Crosby, who is still a better singer than anyone alive and on the pop radio dial today, was born down the road, in Tacoma. I've getting surprised by all the true musical talent that came out of the Pacific Northwest. Ray Charles got his start here, and of course there was Jimi Hendrix)

Birki really really loves crumbly goat cheese. No other treat ever has made her beg like she's been begging for pieces of Winey Goat. (update: That little MONSTER!

Yesterday I installed remind on amsu, and ported my existing calendar store over to it. Todo: write coldsync conduits so that it syncs up with my PDA. What I really want? To have something like this tool, but instead of it's own proprietary data file, instead just use directories and databases full of vCal, iCal, and xCal files. Throw an iCal file into the directory, and lo, have it sync into everything.
