So I still don't know who to vote for in the primary. Last time around I voted for Kucinich, 'cause why not. This time, I'm still a little unsure. I'll vote for Clinton in the general if she wins--and I'll feel good about it, I imagine--but I'm not inclined to vote for her this time around. On tribal grounds, I almost have to vote for Obama--it's not often that you get to vote for someone that people will honestly say that you physically resemble only because you're also blackish, or something. But I haven't been terribly impressed with his campaign so far, and he's settling himself pretty solidly in the 'center' with Clinton. I'm also still convinced that he'll be assassinated, and I don't want to see that. On grounds of policy and pragmatism, I suppose I would vote for Edwards--he's got all the good proposals, all the good rhetoric, and he's turned into a pretty good campaigner, it seems. I think he'd wipe the floor with whatever creature the Opposition coughs up. He's also honest enough to apologize for mistakes made and recognizes that 'personal beliefs!=policy' holds. So if it's close and he's still in it, I will vote Edwards. Finally, Chris Dodd has been really throwing it down in the last few months, I think that should be recognized and supported.

Word Game

This site tests your knowledge of obscure words, whilst donating rice to hungry people for every correct answer. This may well be the perfect website. So far, my high score is 47, along with 950 grains of rice donated.

Sorry to glut our blog with even more embedded video, but, uh, you really need to see this.

And this.

my life, for some reason

Friday afternoon:
Cameron: that's what I know about X so far...
Advisor: Hmm... that's weird. I think we need to know the answer to question Q before we can formulate something with bite.
Cameron: Um... okay.
(A week passes. Cameron doesn't get much solid time to think about Q, but by Friday morning, knows what the solution is roughly.)
Cameron: So you remember question Q--
Advisor: No, what was that?
Cameron: Oh well, it was...
Advisor: Why did we want to know that?
Cameron: So that's the answer to question Q.
Advisor: Well, I think that's neither here nor there. I think we need to know the answer to question Q' before we can formulate something with bite.

Absinthe & Rammstein

In a day internet serendipity, I came across two articles about two diferent topics that reminded me of high school:

Scoops is an ice cream shop in L.A. that makes new and strange flavors each week (with some continuing flavors: brown bread is a perennial favorite). I haven't been there yet, but L.A. metroblogging has a weekly feature listing some of that week's flavors. Last week focused on salt as a theme, offering: Salt and Squash; Sea Salt White Chocolate; Salt Caramel; Salt Avocado and Honey; Butter Squash and Kabocha; and Pumpkin. This week explores tea, with: Earl Gray and Lemongrass; Green Tea and Coconut; Jasmine Tea and Ginger; Chocolate and Lapsang Tea; Lung Ching Tea and Dates; and Chai tea and Egg Nog. I want to go there and eat everything.
