Height of irony: I wore an Oscar Mayer Weinermobile jacket while listening to Joel Salatin speak at Broad Appetit. Hope the photo missed it.
Odd dream last night: Watched a falling satellite get shot down by a missile. Sorry, Rosslyn: it landed on you. Oddest part: I was jogging.
At Broad Appetit today, saw a utilikilt: http://tinyurl.com/6pfyoy IT WAS AWESOME AS ALL GET-OUT.
Back from Broad Appetit with @mogrify and the fams. Tons of fun. Rain and wind, but still a lot of fun. Wish I could disco nap, but… kids.
Oh. Ate grasshoppers today. Nothing to write home about. Not too mundane for twitter, though!
Oh sad. Lucy cut all her hair off.
Getting ready to experiment with kefir waffles. Keefles?
Found out a friend is opening a sushi take-out restaurant in WBG. Awesome.
The Columbia Guide to Standard American English says (p. 156) that it’s “down the pike,” and not “down the pipe.” Of course, they also then say that “down the pipe” is equivalent to “down the drain,”…
Thing I learned today: The plural of “fife” is “fifes.”
The accents and afterthoughts make all the difference. See, too, Jared Spool’s “fairy doors.”

Getting ready to work offline all day, except for customer service pings from Sarah.
Fleetwood Mac makes me think of *you*, Donovan T. Maust, official Junior Year Roommate! Hope you and your lovely family are well!
With the showers that just passed through, we’ve got lots of tree frogs crawling up the glass doors and windows. Love this time of the year.
Working on some interface stuff; wondering when I’ll get to see Travis’s new tattoos.
Just Like Heaven just might be the best song in the history of humankind.
Hoping this to-do list gives me a satisfying sense of completion when it’s gone. Skeptical about that, though.
Der. Signed out of @charliepark, meaning to sign in with @pearbudget. Signed back in on autopilot. Ended up right back where I started.
Mark’s kind words on PearBudget!
Wow. Guess I’d never delicious’d the new URL. Here it is.
Okay. New question. How to encode a MySQL database entry as UTF8?
Anybody know why a British pound symbol would convert to a ? when submitted to / called from a database?
Nevermind. This needs a little more attention before I query the lazyweb. Thanks.
Fresh like a box of Krispy Kreme!
Wow. It’s a good thing web traffic reports are updated only once every 24 hours. Otherwise, I’d have been up all night.
This internet connection has been a joke all afternoon. Cor. Blimey.
Recently, I was reviewing PearBudget on a friend’s computer, and was surprised at how washed-out the colors were. Although we’ve looked at the site on a number of different computers, it appears…

About to get working on the Mothers’ Day lunch dishes.
Yeah. This was a good day.
I’m such a pseudo-geek. I read a headline talking about a router, and I thought it was talking about the woodworking tool.
Backing up. You’ve backed up *your* important stuff recently, right?
Needing to write down my to-dos, and to stop trying to keep them in my head. Obvious, right?
Thinking I’ll go to this, to learn how to better parse consumer data. July 14-15 in DC.
Note: localhost.com:3000 != localhost:3000. Come on, brain. You’re better than this.
More and more states and school districts are offering financial literacy courses in high schools. We think that’s fantastic. We also think that PearBudget, being a dead-simple tool for budgeting,…
Beat, beat, beat.
When your “followers” outstrips your “following” due to twitterspam, it just doesn’t feel that great.

Oop. Here you go: http://tinyurl.com/3dwrt8
