- Workplace lingo: Yeah, I know it's been done by many others before me, but lately I've been amused by the things people *cough*managers*cough* bother saying when they could just as easily use simpler terms.
Argument for posting: I think it's funny.
Argument against: The buzzwords vary from place to place, but it's really the same old story anyone who has ever had a job will have told at one point or another.
- Brunch Report: We went out to a fancy-shmancy prime rib brunch at Caltech's Athenaeum on Sunday for Demetri's birthday. We got to get semi-dressed up and stuff our faces with tasty foods.
Argument for: Creepy Santa, the tuberculosis tree, candle-flavored bacon.
Argument against: We didn't make any of the food, just ate it, and I've basically given away all the highlights in this little synopsis.
- Movie Reviews: We're back to burning through our Netflix queue at a pretty good clip, so we've seen a few amusing movies I could write about.
Argument for: Idiocracy & Live Free or Die Hard were entertaining, while In Good Company was disappointing, so I've probably got plenty to say.
Argument against: Eh, none of these are really all that new, so I'm not sure how interested anybody will actually be in what I've got to say.
- Inventory: I've been thinking of writing something similar to this recent post of
Water Megan'sAquaMegan's from last week.
Argument for: Just in thinking rather preliminarily about it, I think my list is going to turn out quite a bit different from hers, and this is interesting to me.
Argument against: I'm not sure if it will be at all interesting to anybody else. ;)
So there's a little of what's been rattling around in my brain lately besides "gah, heartburn again" and "seriously, cat, if you don't get off the counter right now, I will huck this book at your head" and "the correlation matrices clearly show that the particle size distribution of the sample set is blah blah blah..." That I have room for anything else at all these days is as much of a shock to me as anyone. ;) But there you have it. Anything strike your fancy that you'd like to hear more about?
