Friday Favorite Things About Moving

I’ve spent a fair amount of time over the past few weeks complaining about the various and sundry irritations of moving. But there’s things I love, too. Getting rid of accumulated useless crap is pretty awesome. Rediscovering treasures that were hidden away for lack of space, such as Michael Smith-Sardior’s Fragile Pair: I actually did …

Friday Favorite Wine

Since Bush left office, I haven’t quite been tempted to drink myself into oblivion every day. Nice change, that. But I still have a fondness for good wine. One of the more exciting aspects of moving into a place of my own is getting a nice wine rack put up, wherein bottles of my favorites …

Friday Favorite Comics

Tomorrow night, it will become clear to you why I’m taking this opportunity to celebrate comic books. And no, it’s not because Watchmen came out. Although I am, in fact, rather excited about that. Truth is, I’m a comic book lover. And I freely admit I used to be the kind of snob who thought …

Friday Favorite Childhood Cartoons

My supervisor has taken to announcing his lunch break with cartoons. Since we’re roughly the same age, our tastes coincide. It’s sad that the highlight of my work day is seeing what cartoon he’s hyping next, but at work, you must take whatever nuggets of joy you can find. He’s reminded me of those halcyon …

Friday Favorite Physics Cats

Two of my great loves: physics and cats. Thanks to the intertoobz, I can indulge them all at once. This was my opinion of biology once. Then I discovered molecular biology, got to know evolutionary theory better, and realized there wasn’t anything “soft” about it at all… This is a frequent experience at Casa de …

Friday Favorite Graph

Wow. Look whose stock is rising – and whose is sinking: That’s right. All of the foot-stomping, fist-pounding, screaming, crying, lying, and hysterical fits are sending Congressional Cons’ popularity plunging while their self-esteem rises. Poor babies. I do hope there’ll be enough of them left after the next election for mutual back-patting. I imagine the …

Forgot Friday Favorites Again, Didn’t I?

Heh heh heh whoops. Look, I have an excuse. I was busy figuring out how to put a red ribbon on the White House. Everything else just kinda goes out the window when I’m busy figuring out how to use Photoshop Elements and debating whether or not to bust out the Wacom Tablet. To fill …

Friday Favorite Fun With Earthquakes

So no shit, here I was beavering away at the blogging, and all of a sudden I notice the house is juddering and the cat’s sitting bolt-upright acting like the world’s coming apart. The shaking lasted nearly a minute. It wasn’t the kind of thing that would make a Californian blink, but to this Arizona …

Friday Favorite Melancholy

You’re probably thinking Dana’s gone right round the bend. How could anyone have a favorite melancholy? If you love a particular sad song, or somber poem, or tragic story, you’re as guilty as I am. I wouldn’t say we enjoy wallowing in misery, but sometimes it’s nice to soak in some sorrow. Some of the …
