9045 - Thursday

Feeling better, but not at 100% Maybe 60%.... Better than the 15% yesterday. - went back to work, mainly because I had far too many meetings I couldn't afford to miss. Accursed Bronchial tubes!

Physically achy from the coughing, but otherwise doing ok. Got a nosebleed right before my 10am teleconference... that was a hoot.

Later tonight, after dinner, I got to replicate my hulk icon from yesterday... so... there we are. *Blarf*

Heading to bed at 9:30 tonight good rest will mend me up. Poor BHK is coming down with it, too.

This afternoon, I thought to myself ... "Wow... Aimee Mann sounds a bit like the chick from 'Til Tuesday"... then I found out that she *IS* the chick from 'Til Tuesday.


"This week a sub-$100,000 rocket belt was unveiled and will be on sale this summer, but that's the sad thing: it's still not a real jet pack. Here's a fascinating inside look at the human-flight industry, full of law-suit scandals, technical difficulties, fuel-economy woes and endless delays. The good news? It all points to the next generation of rocketeer research, with real applications for medical rescue and military technology actually coming on the horizon. From the article: 'With a little patience, and a little funding, we could actually have the pleasure of grumbling over regulatory issues we never dreamed possible. Like being limited to specific kinds of air strips, because the jet strapped to your back is classified by the FAA as an ultralight. Or being required to wear a ballistic parachute, because Amarena's Thunderjet design could reach altitudes as high as 10,000 feet (and, for the record, speeds of up to 160 mph, provided someone can solve wind-resistance issues).'" - via /.

Favorite joke of the moment -

The Secretary of Defense is giving President Bush his daily briefing. He concludes by saying: "Yesterday, 3 Brazilian soldiers were killed."

"OH NO!" the President exclaims. "That's terrible!"

His staff sits stunned at this display of emotion, nervously watching as the President sits, head in hands.

Finally, the President looks up and asks, "How many is a brazillion?"
