What a long, strange (online) trip it’s been

Those of you who know me may have noticed that sometimes I say one thing followed by something seemingly totally unrelated. However, if you were to ask me, I could tell you the entire train of thought that took me from the first statement to the second. I had a similar experience today online. First thing: the Pirates traded Xavier Nady and Damaso Marte to the Yankees. Second thing: an article about the wedding of a girl I went to high school with.

A question

Why is it that reading the encyclopedia was regarded as really dorky when I was growing up but browsing Wikipedia is now cool?  Maybe it’s because, when I was growing up, I spent my time with “normal” people and now I mostly spend my time with dorks (no disrespect to my current friends/colleagues intended).

How you should spend July 3rd

Last summer, Heather and I got into watching a show on the USA cable network called “Burn Notice“.  It’s about a former spy who got “burned” by the government.  Essentially, that means that they deemed him to be a security threat, froze all his assets, cut off all his government contacts, and dumped him (alive) in Miami.  The show is about him trying to figure out who is responsible for his burn notice and how he can get unburned.  In the meantime, he uses his special training to do various jobs for various people in Miami.

It turns out that the show is really entertaining and might teach you a thing or two about spy skills.  A new season is beginning on July 10th.  However, tomorrow USA is having a marathon of all of last season’s episodes back to back to back…  All the fun starts at 6:30am and the last episode ends at 7pm.  So, head on out to the grocery store tonight and buy yourself lots of snacks for your 12 1/2 hour Burn Notice viewing.  Or, you could just set up your TiVo or MythTV to tape the whole thing.
