    Random Thoughts: Yardwork

    August 22, 2010

    How on earth have I managed 12 years of home ownership without owning a leaf blower before now? Greatest. Tool. Ever. Only one downside: much less calorie burning via sweeping and raking.


    Random Thoughts: Avoid Blogging Mistakes

    August 16, 2010

    I was going to do a blog post here listing a bunch of my pet peeves. Then I realized that my family and friends would take that list and use it against me. I’d never be able to avoid them. Ack!

    So that idea is dead.

    Moral of the story: Avoid blogging mistakes by thinking your idea through to its natural conclusion.


    Random Thoughts: Travel

    July 20, 2010

    1.) They never have my book at airport bookstores. That’s understandable now; the book came out almost two years ago. But I never saw it in any airport bookstores in late 2008/early 2009, either. Waaaaaah.

    2.) Flying at the end of the month has a drawback: the crossword puzzle in the in-flight magazine is always finished. Double waaaaaah.


    Random Thoughts: SEO Clients

    July 6, 2010

    It’s extremely nerve-wracking to send an SEO services contract to an attorney. Even worse when the attorney specializes in business and contract law.

    You might think it’s a huge relief when the attorney signs and returns the contract without comment. No. All that does is make you feel that s/he found 27 loopholes in it and chose not to say anything.


    Random Thoughts: Dishwashers

    May 6, 2010

    I am fairly certain that the “Normal Wash” mode on our dishwasher is both faster than the “Quick Wash” mode, and smarter than the “Smart Wash” mode.

    That’s all. Move along.


    Random Thoughts: Seahawks Draft

    March 15, 2010

    If this NFL draft is so deep — and all the “experts” say it is — I wouldn’t mind seeing the Seahawks try to turn a couple of their high picks into several 2nd-4th round picks.

    If memory serves, Seattle has three picks in the top 40. They could, in theory, trade at least two of those picks for extra picks and land 4-5 quality players. And the Seahawks need all the quality bodies they can find right now.
