Megnut

Here's one that I love:

Here's one that I love: 37 First Lines by 34 Poets, a wonderful amalgamation of the first lines of famous poems, you'll remember some from school, realize others sound familiar, and marvel at the way in which pb weaves them into his very own poetic wonder.

megnut secret: I can't yo-yo, or do the yo-yo, or whatever you call it. It just goes down and it never comes back up.

How come by the time

How come by the time Friday arrives I always feel so tired and run-down that I don't want to do anything, rather than feel revved up for a big weekend in the City?

I take no offense at

I take no offense at being called "crack assassin," or being considered a gang member, but when someone insults pb's poetry, things have gone too far! Beware the fury of megnut.

I still haven't quite recovered

I still haven't quite recovered from going to see Boys Don't Cry last night. I keep thinking about it, replaying different scenarios in my mind, "if only he..." or "why didn't they...", something that could have changed the ending. Of course, I knew the ending before going in, and I knew it was a true story, but I couldn't help hoping that somehow, in some way, it would work out—that hatred and fear would not triumph, and that a girl's courage to be true to herself would not end in tragedy.

This seems a little strange

This seems a little strange to me: interactive maps designed for outdoor enthusiasts. What use is a computer-based map when you're lost in the backcountry? Who brings a laptop hiking? And even if you print it out, wouldn't you need some fancy large-format printer to make it useful? And reliable?

Syl's got a monochrome new

Syl's got a monochrome new design, but I like it. It's stark and gray, like the weather around here.

Oh the irony: power has

Oh the irony: power has been sporadic in our neighborhood lately, so Ev went to the store to buy a ups, but he couldn't. He couldn't get into the store, the power was out.

People love destruction: today as

People love destruction: today as I walked down 4th Street, there was a crowd gathered watching a giant smashing ball on a crane (sorry for the high-brow technobabble) bashing up the windows of this building. Dust was heavy in the air and people were ooohing and aaaahing as glass crashed to the street.

So you're thinking of getting

So you're thinking of getting a new car? Perhaps you're thinking of the performance of a nice sedan, coupled with the all-wheel drive of an SUV? Why not consider the Audi S4? Unless you're female, of course, because according to Michael at Royal Motor Sales, "People who get them are very serious, and typically it's not a car that females would appreciate." And everyone knows that females aren't serious, and can't appreciate a powerful automobile. Hell, that's why I drive an '87 Civic. As a girl, what do I care about cars and engines and greasy, complicated stuff? My girlfriends and I usually just paint our nails and dream about 'N Sync.

Happy anniversary to my mom

Happy anniversary to my mom and dad today: 31 years. Wow! That sure is a long time...

A driving realization

Isn't it irritating how you're going along through life, singing "fa la la la la," and then someone points something out to you, say, like: everyone in the second-to-the-left lane on the freeway goes exactly the speed limit? Because then when you drive down to Palo Alto for a meeting, you start to notice these things, whereas before all you did was putter along, enjoying the rolling hills of 280. But now you realize, "what the hell, I'm driving a 1987 Honda Civic, we're going uphill for crissakes, I'm in the second fastest lane, going 67, and I need to pass!!!" That, to me, seems all wrong. But until today, I didn't even notice it. Oh my God! I just realized: maybe, until today, I *was* that person!

Sorry

Sorry to hear that.

The decline of the Spanish megnut

Wondering what's happened to megnuez? Well, I'm having problems translating every post into Spanish, it just doesn't feel right. I express myself differently in Spanish than in English, and so if I try to just make a straight translation, the Spanish sounds silly (to me). So I've been thinking about what to do, without overwhelming myself by trying to maintain two separate blogs.

pb's pictures are great

pb's been posting really nice pictures to his site lately, and his collection of Bodega Bay shots from last weekend rocks! I really like this one, and this one, and the colors in this one are so vibrant. Don't stop a-shootin' pb!

Redesign is coming along

Sorry for the foul language yesterday, I was flustered. So you can see the design is still changing...I'm not being very official about this. Some people take weeks to redesign and get everything perfect. I like to fly by the seat of my pants.
