I don’t get much television time in these days but I’m thoroughly digging No Reservations. Even in the Indian countryside Bourdain exudes New York. Makes me miss my family, and the East Coast.
The new BlackBerry showed up today. Hoping to get some quality time with it over the holiday weekend (Monday is Labor Day in the US). Maybe give YoMoBlog a spin while I’m at it.
Speaking of growing children, Vanguard just posted a new podcast episode about saving for college. Here’s the podcast feed for their excellent Plain Talk on Investing ™ series. And no, Vanguard isn’t paying me to talk about them. I just dig what they’re doing, it’s an excellent use of the medium, and a smart business move.
Daugther #1 started kindergarten today. Daughter #2 is one year old today. I joke with my friends that it’s not fair, not fair at all.
Funny story. A few weeks ago I’m at the local video store looking for a DVD for my daughter. I find it but continue to browse the kids’ section just to see what else they have. I stumble upon an oddly named animated film. It’s called Queer Duck. Sounds not-quite-right for a kid show. Then I notice the tagline is, “He can’t even fly straight!”. Heh heh, I guess they goofed up and put it in the wrong part of the store. It’s animated and about a duck. Must be for kids. Realizing this I decide that I must have it, so I pull it from the kids’ rack, pay the bill and am on my way. Turns out Queer Duck is pretty hilarious, who knew?
I swear sometimes I think I could live on nothing but tortilla chips.
