- No. 6,137 (cartoon)
- What do you call a headless dog?
Why call it anything? Its not going to come.

- Dietary Prejudices
- Freidas brother Hubert from North Dakota is visiting her here in San Francisco, so she decided to take him out for the kind of meal thats not readily available in small, rural communities.
Unfortunately, the evening didnt go very well. Freida took Hubert to a very good sushi restaurant, but Hubert wasnt biting. Freida said they ended up eating some wretched hamburgers after Hubert announced, I dont eat bait.

- A Lot More Less Controllable
- Francine came by the lab tonight, and regaled me with tales from her various adventures and excesses.
You would appear to be wilder than ever, I opined after she told me the story about the airline pilot and the frozen oysters.
I wouldnt exactly put it that way, she replied with a curious smile, lets just say Im a lot more less controllable.

- Heat Erasure
- I need to preface this story with a preface. I barely speak one language, and thus am in no position to put down anyone who speaks more than one language, especially when the person in question is smarter than me, as is the case with this anecdote.
A friend from Thailand mentioned during the course of a lovely dinner that he was putting the cover back on the bowl of rice, so that the heat wont be erased. He immediately corrected himself, then we all had a good laugh. I quite like the idea of heat erasure; its something I never would have concocted myself.

- Gandhi versus Business Casual Dress
- Some Greenpeace apparatchik sent me an invitation to a book event at the organizations headquarters in Washington D.C., in the conference room we have affectionately titled, Gandhi. Ironically, the invitation also suggested, Business Casual dress.
I wonder what the would-be environmentalists would do if Mahatma Gandhi showed up at a Business Casual dress event in a loincloth?
I appreciated the invitation; I laughed all day and well into this otherwise quiet night.

- Cardboard Mirror
- Eva and I enjoyed a lovely reunion this afternoon. I hadnt seen her in over a decade, and she was exactly as I remembered her. She was so radiant that she could use cardboard for a mirror.
