Grocery Store Musing

Sunday, January 14th, 2007

Why do I have a kid who won’t eat red meat, but will happily consume Brie?
And how cool is it that we blew ten minutes at the cheese section, talking about all the different varieties she might want to try next?
Why are the boxes of raisins in the snack food aisle, further hidden beneath the […]

Thursday, January 11th, 2007

Heading off to bed, but before I do that I’m posting this so I won’t have to hunt for the link tomorrow. Slate asks why do we care about plagiarism? I’ve got a lot of reasons. We’ll see if we agree on this.

Thursday, January 4th, 2007

Breathe

Wednesday, January 3rd, 2007
