I wonder if this could have anything to do with my cholesterol numbers.

I never did find my TWSBI 580 after the move, so today I replaced it with the Aluminum version in Nickel Gray. IMO the TWSBIs are the best pens you can get for under $100.

I’ve decided that two pages are the right number of “Morning Pages” for me. Nice and symmetrical. Also, writing three pages is too much and makes me avoid writing them at all.

You have to love grain if you want to get along with T-Max P3200.

I know I’m getting old because my first reaction was, “Oh what’s this bullshit now?!”

I can’t think of anything less productive than configuring Lotus Agenda, but it’s fun! I actually used it for real in 2014. baty.net/2014/lotus-agenda/

Devin Townsend’s new album is a nutso, all-over-the-map, beautiful, noisy mess and I love it.

I’ll be busy burning out my retinas staring at this every day for the next week or so.

When I’m in the mood for something more interesting than Blue Valentine but not as weird as Bone Machine, I tend to go for Rain Dogs.

Robin Trower, at 73, is still kicking ass. Love the new record.

David Rees, in Chapter 11 of “How to Sharpen Pencils”, says, “Mechanical pencils are bullshit.” I’ve always agreed with him. Lately, though, I’ve started to wonder if maybe they would be useful for making sketches, so I ordered one. Don’t tell Mr. Rees, but I like it.

Mini Me has been hanging around our offices since the beginning.

I’m told this is “The most ‘Jack’ photo in existence”. I hope this is because of the camera rather than the shorts.

The HHKB remains my second favorite keyboard of all time. Some day it may even take over the top spot from the Apple Extended Keyboard II.

So many choices! (I went with Lizard of Koz, “Deep Cut”)
