The Owner is in

9290 - Thursday

I think tonight is Thai night or is that tomorrow? Or did we decide to go with zucchini? Ah well, it'll be a winner of a night, no matter what.

Had tasty leftover thai soup for lunch... maybe leftover pizza from last night for dinner? I guess I'll know once I get home... I imagine my ride'll be here soon! [edit: had a huge salad for dinner, and rounded it out with the remainder of the Thai soup. Pizza in box for tomorrow!]

Serious cough this morning - pollen? Faded as we left North Beach. [edit: didn't return when I got back home - woodsmoke, perhaps?]

Watched House and Hell's Kitchen - we're about 3 episodes from the end on each. I can't get over how abusive Ramsey is on that show - I've seen him far nicer to other folks, so I'm guessing it's mostly an act. House wasn't up to usual snuff... (the sopa opera star one) I guess ever season has to have the weak episode here and again.

It seems as though LifeLock isn't as secure as Todd Davis makes it out. According to a LifeLock spokesman, his identity has been stolen. For two years, Davis has been daring hackers to steal his ID. Looks like he got what he wanted. CNN reports: 'Now, LifeLock customers in Maryland, New Jersey and West Virginia are suing Davis, claiming his service didn't work as promised and he knew it wouldn't, because the service had failed even him.'

Whenever I think of James Garner, I think of three things. (usually in this order)

1. Rockford Files
2. Maverick
3. A Chevy Tahoe Commercial he did a voiceover for:

"Nobody Knows It But Me" written by Patrick O'Leary

The words of the poem are as follows:
There's a place that I travel
When I want to roam
And nobody knows it but me.

The roads don't go there
And the signs stay home
And nobody knows it but me.

It's far far away
And way way afar
It's over the moon and the sea
And whenever you're going
that's wherever you are
And nobody knows it but me.
I love that poem, but if pressed, prefer the Rockford files.

Best News Reporter name ever - Opheera McDoom followed closely by my old local Cinnamon Stouffer .

Discovered a few of the likely many benefits of the SQL UNION command. I'm surprised I've never used it until this week. I am also surprised that it defaults to DISTINCT, rather than ALL that seems counter-intuitive, but I'll take it.

Newton tackles Pye again. Asserting Dominance? Pye gives as much as he gets and nobody ever hurts anyone else.
