Slow Bloggin

No, I'm not dead, just busy. "Slow Bloggin" is how I feel when I feel empty of blog post ideas.

The holiday season this year comes as we are finishing some home renovations. Today is also the office Christmas party (starting at 5:01 PM). The season is progressing far too speedily.

Yesterday I took the day off and Maggie and I went to the Natick Mall, the only place where they sell See's Chocolates in Massachusetts. These chocolates are by far the best I've tasted. They're the only boxed chocolates I'll buy for people around the holidays, unless they are not available. My favorite is the Dark Butter Chew.

But let me throw some stuff together here to at least make the blog look good today.

Ever notice how some folks really hate cilantro? I think cilantro is so-so. I do know some haters, but I don't think this phenomenon is particular to cilantro.

For the technical-minded, this article on the possible confluence of RSS and BitTorrent technologies provides some food for thought. I have to admit that, while I've used BitTorrent, it is still just a little bit of a mystery to me. Probably nothing a quick read of the F A Q couldn't clear up.

If you were a toddler on serious drugs, this is what you would see.

oooookay... that Boobah link? truly scary. unsurprising, i suppose, that it comes from the same minds as Teletubbies, which also scare the crap out of me, and are unfit for viewing by small children.

Count me among the cilantro haters.

My Irish mother never had it her spice cabinet so I never even tried it until I visited a Vietnamese rest. in DC

I can take a tiny bit of cilantro in very specific recipes. It took me a long time to work up to that. Otherwise I think it is a weed that is best left by the roadside or wherever the hell it grows.
