Mis primos le gustan el queso.

(If my memory of Spanish is correct: My cousins like the cheese.)

Bucky has an excellent admonition for his roommate, Satchel: "Satchel, if you ever put a clown suit on, I'll take you down like a Florida congressman."

Paul Southworth clued me in to a Harvard University comic/gaming convention called Vericon. It's coming up in January and it looks like something that could be a lot of fun. I don't have many friends who are into gaming (maybe 1 or 2?) but maybe I can rope one of them into hitting this thing with me.

Scott Adams:
Don’t forget – music is a gateway drug to harder stuff. Music attracts dancing. Dancing attracts alcohol. Alcohol leads to unwanted pregnancies. Unwanted pregnancies lead to abortion. If you believe life begins at conception, you have to believe that music kills babies.

And then there’s the corrosive effect of hip-hop music. I enjoy a lot of it, but after hearing three tracks I have an urge to slap a ho. That can’t be healthy, especially for the ho.

Just to be clear, I don’t think music should be illegal. I just think it’s somewhat random that it isn’t.

Hugh recommends a movie.

Hugh also had a number of posts following up the Threshers viral coupon. This post of his has a nice wrap up of his thoughts on the "campaign."

I didn't have time to read this post yet but I'd like to.

The new Vista MS Office will have a new UI dubbed "the Ribbon". I watched the video on it and have changed my mind. It looks like it might be a nice, more intuitive design. At least worth a look and a try before dubbing it the coming of the Antichrist.

American Express is in the middle of a huge promotion. They offer various items at incredible deals in very limited numbers at certain times of the day (a different item each day, three times a day). Today was a 2007 Porsche Cayman Coupe, three each at three times today. List price: $49,400. AmEx price: $5,000. Needless to say, I tried twice and won none.

I still haven't further replied to the Humanism debate. I want to..

But not now. Now I leave. Go home. Heroes later. And Studio 60. ¡Hasta luego y Salud!
