Required Reading

Just in case you haven't been following the Isiah Thomas sexual harassment trial, you can catch up here, courtesy of the Sports Guy. There should be a verdict tomorrow or next week.

Juicy nuggets include this one:

When asked to remember a heated exchange with Browne Sanders after she wouldn't give him free tickets to a home game, Marbury made one thing clear: "I didn't call her a black bitch. I called her a bitch."

Walked to Bryant Park, sat down in the middle of some women's celebration. Music was way too loud and annoying...or so I thought until I found out that someone famous was singing! You really are every woman, Chaka Khan.

Outsourcing Squared

India is sending workers here and so on:

In a poetic reflection of outsourcing’s new face, Wipro’s chairman, Azim Premji, told Wall Street analysts this year that he was considering hubs in Idaho and Virginia, in addition to Georgia, to take advantage of American “states which are less developed.” (India’s per capita income is less than $1,000 a year.)

iPhonian Nights

My first night with a working iPhone led me to have a nightmare in which Dan got beaten up after fighting back against some thugs. Then while I was worrying about him, my iPhone, which was sitting in my car, got stolen, along with the car. For some reason in this dream, my iPhone worked as a car key as well. Then when I called the cops, they made that old "working in shifts" joke from Lebowski. And it all happened in San Francisco. Harrowing stuff.

Entering the Big Time

I am finally getting a real business card. Not one with someone else's name crossed out!

On the plane

I'm sitting down in the aisle seat when a "fratty" guy who has the window seat asks the woman in the middle seat to move up one row so his "crazy" buddy can sit there instead. "Trust me," he says to the woman in the seat in front of me, "you will not want to sit near him." I expect them to be drinking the whole flight, as rowdy as can be. What happens instead? They spend the whole flight quizzing each other on orthopedic surgery questions.

It's the little things

You really learn to appreciate them when you re-join the workforce. Three recent examples:

1. Getting Firefox installed on my computer (thanks Tom). It has made almost every aspect of my job run more smoothly.

2. Getting a new mouse. I thought that my thumb was gonna fall off with the old one.

3. Having an amazing office with two big windows. I hope I get to stay. I haven't turned on the disgusting fluorescent lighting once before 7 PM...yet.


The angry mob of one has spoken! More content will come to this blog. It's not like I haven't been busy though. I've been working, seeing my old college roommate, buying an iPhone a day (it's a terrible habit)...and BRENNER! This weekend, the bloggers are off to the Deep South and will hopefully come back with some tales to tell.

I can't remember ALL of your numbers

Since Saturday, my mobile phone has been deteriorating like the photo of the McFly children in Back to the Future. So I am either going to have play an incredible version "Johnny B. Goode" for my parents in the 1970s ("Watch me for the changes and try to keep up") or get a new phone. It seems completely inexplicable at this point, but if I don't call you anymore, that's why. Especially if your name begins with any letter after "Rugby Dan."

Bleak House

I'm already waking up half an hour early, embracing/dreading that final 25 minutes of sleep, and then waking up one more time half a second before my alarm goes off. I've been working again for one week and I'm already doomed.
