old snippets 2007

Probably written between 2000-2002:

I am actually partially deaf. I have a condition called otosclerosis wherein the small bones of the ear fuse together. This has so far only affected my right ear. I had a surgery about 6 or 7 years ago and they put a little steel and teflon piston in my ear. Now I'm bionic. :) It did help a lot. I think my hearing is probably only down about 30% in that ear now. There is a possibility that the condition will affect the other ear at some point, but so far so good.

old snippets 2007

Probably written between 2000-2002:

In October of 1992, B.J. and I moved to Honolulu with 2 carry-ons and 4 checked bags. We found an apartment. He got a job with Ditto's (the Hawaiian version of Kinko's) and I did temp jobs. My work included:
   - answering phones at a company where I had to say "Hello, Ram Paging. May I help you?"

   - answering phones and relaying messages at a service used by doctors and the drivers who pick up bodies and transport them to the morgue. Fortunately, I was not working the day we had a call regarding a pickup of a woman who'd jumped from a high building. Our building.

- data entry clerk for the State Tax Board of Hawaii where I saw some amazing names, the best probably being Mughtar Alihani Greengrass.

We lived in Hawaii 6 months, during which time we became close friends with Pooka Keoni Littlemouse and were visited by our crazy friend Chris Hudak. When we moved back to San Jose, seeking geek/goth/industrial culture and a faster pace of life, Keoni moved back with us. I saw him yesterday at the beach party. He's still living in San Francisco, was dressed all in black, has a fabulous girlfriend and more hair than 10 strong men.

'dak isn't crazy crazy, just wild 'n crazy fun crazy. Keoni's still Keoni, despite changes in the outward trappings.

old snippets 2007

Probably written between 2000-2002:

When my grandfather was a boy, he used to go down to the park and sit in front of the bandstand. Then he'd take out a lemon and suck on it. All the brass players hated him because they couldn't play when they watched him. Wicked little feller, weren't he?

That was Grandpa Bob from whom I must have inherited my love of lemons and limes.

old snippets 2007

Probably written down between 2000-2002, can't remember where this originally came from:

A bather whose clothing was strewed

By breezes that left her quite nude

Saw a man come along

And, unless I'm quite wrong,

You expected this line to be lewd.

old snippets 2007

Probably written between 2000-2002:

We had two dogs when I was growing up, Molly and Jenny. They were Keeshonden, fuzzy medium-sized dogs. They were housedogs, so I would take them in the yard and for walks. Oh and torment them in the usual ways, putting clothes on them and what have you. Good dogs. I'll have a dog again someday. I'm thinking perhaps a basenji; they are smooth and they yodel.

After living in the city a few years and watching people carrying around bags of warm poop, I'm much less inclined toward dog ownership.

fun puzzle 2007

There's some game I can't think of the name of at the moment where you try to get people to guess the word you're thinking of by giving words that are paired with it. Might be something I picked up from Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me on NPR.

Anyhow, these clues are fun

head

corn

Boston

clam

when the answer is "chowder".

Permutations of my name: #8, 9 and 10 in a series 2007

These all come from Jamba Juice and presumably date from 2004 or so:

- Diana

- Dinna

- Ddiingh

(To the clerk's defense, I think the latter was a typing problem as much as a spelling problem, though it is one of my favorites).

No, no, I don't want your junk mail. 2007

Write "refused" on any junk mail you can't return to the sender and drop it in the nearest postal mail box (rather than making your carrier carry it back again, which is slightly cruel since they don't like the crap any more than you do).

As far as I can tell this is perfectly legal. [See for example D042 Conditions of Delivery]

Saturday Discardia 2007

Need a little chest freezer?

424273409_f18093aa22_o

5.3 cubic feet. Nice for those who make soups or like to minimize their shopping trips to Trader Joe's.

$90 and you pick it up at my place in the Castro, SF. It's not heavy.

Still under 5 more years warranty against compressor failure. Have manual, warranty & receipt.

The most intense illustration of the work Doctors Without Borders does

424626837_2b44e85e56_o

The mailings with the bracelet and the hole card just shake you to realize how extreme the situation is. Children are starving to death. Still. Despite all our worldwide wealth, we still let children starve to death. And it's a slow, painful process for child and parent. And it's preventable.

Blog (noun) A weblog or similar brief journal usually containing links and commentary thereon. Term coined by Peter Merholz.

Visit Typepad or Blogger to start your own. (I began with hand coding, then switched to Blogger when it first became available, then to Movable Type when I wanted more control over my weblog and to have it hosted at a place of my choosing (Hurricane Electric). Since 06/2003 I've used Typepad, a hosted service built by the same folks who made Movable Type, which I love because I don't have to maintain the underlying system).
