Isn’t that what we all want?

People who understand us?

This makes me smile and laugh every time I see it.

Feeling a little schizo today

Today is a historic day in the life of our little family: the little phisch is going to his first-ever live, in-person football game. My wife’s boss is a SMU alum, and secured us tickets to tonight’s contest against Tulane, which is where my wife graduated from law school. Before the game, we’ll be at the Tulane Alumni tailgate party, where I’m sure I’ll draw some stares, since I’m in my purple LSU shirt and tan LSU cap.

So here’s the rundown: with me in my LSU regalia, we’re going to be amongst Tulane grads for eats and drinks, assuring them that, yes, we’ll be rooting for the Green Wave during the game. We’ll be sitting in the heart of the SMU side of the field, amongst Mustang grads and their families, assuring them that, yes we’ll be rooting for the ponies during the game. Effectively, we’re going to be Switzerland, my wife told me earlier.

See why I’m feeling a little schizo with regard to college football today?

I’m just hoping it’s a decent football game. I’m also interested in checking out Gerald J. Ford Stadium, which is fairly new, having had its first games played in the 2000 season.

By the way, the game is on Fox Sports Network Southwest at 7 PM CST, so if you see the lone purple-shirt guy amongst a sea of blue, red, and white, that’s probably moi.

And I thought it was going to be Oscar

The little phisch has always enjoyed Sesame Street, and I’ve started getting him in to The Muppet Show, so when I saw Michelle’s results for the Sesame Street Personality Quiz, I had to give it a shot.

You Are Bert
Extremely serious and a little eccentric, people find you loveable - even if you don’t love them!

You are usually feeling: Logical - you rarely let your emotions rule you

You are famous for: Being smart, a total neat freak, and maybe just a little evil

How you life your life: With passion, even if your odd passions (like bottle caps and pigeons) are baffling to others

Another for my typophile homies

(And for those of you who, like me, may still have a celebrity crush on Vanna White left over from the `80s.)

I have to agree with Scott Simpson: there’s just something about the way Vanna says “Helvetica”…

  • Fraser Speirs has put together a simple Wikipedia search page for iPhone users, since, in his words, “you don’t want to load the main page on your iPhone just to search.”
  • Krishna Kumar, back in July, on blogs that don’t offer full RSS feeds. If you have a blog, and you’re not offering a full feed, I’m likely not reading your blog often. If you’re not offering a feed at all, I’m likely not reading your blog at all.

“The Star Spangled Banner”, in Baritone

Where is God?

Tony Woodlief:

So where is God found? He finds us, of course, as he always has, from the beginning, and will to the end, because a parent seeks his children without ceasing. But listen close, and I will tell you where I saw him last. It was just yesterday evening, when Isaac placed his fresh-washed hands in my palms, his face strangely peace-filled, and sang to me in his warbly voice. Here is God, I thought. Do you want to find God? Then look up from your books and theologies, if you can bear it, for God is here.

The latest news on the injured hoof

Today I had another visit with my orthopedist. New x-rays were taken, and my foot was poked and prodded.

The bad news: not yet time for surgery to have the screw removed.

The good news: I can ditch the walking boot for regular shoes, though I did have to go buy an insert for my left shoes that has a hardened plastic bottom to help support the joints where my injury took place.

(An aside: Kudos to the manager of our local Walgreen’s (I got it wrong when I said CVS in my tweet) for not trying to sell me a product I couldn’t really use, and instead, sending me to the neighborhood pharmacy down the street. This pharmacy had a lot more specialty items to choose from, including the very insert I needed. My thanks to both pharmacies and their respective staffs.)

I’ve only been in the regular shoe, with the insert, for a few minutes, but I can already tell that my ankle and calf will be aching by the end of the day, as they have not been exercised in a normal walking fashion for a few months now. I go back in six weeks (sigh) for my next visit. The doc is hopeful that at that time everything will be back to where it’s supposed to be, and we can then schedule the surgery for me to get “unscrewed”. Oh, and I still have to walk with the cane.

At any rate, thank the Lord I’m out of that boot, and hurray for progress!

ATPM 13.10

The October issue of About This Particular Macintosh is now available for your reading enjoyment.

If you haven’t gotten enough iPhone news in the past month, or if you’ve just been vacationing in the Eastern Hindu Kush with Osama, Wes has a big round-up in this month’s Bloggable. Speed is on Mark’s mind, as is, um, more speed. Of a sort. And referencing the first in a certain series of science fiction movies many would know by name, but few will recall by the included reference.

Lee delves in to one of Photoshop’s premier features, layers, while Sylvester talks about your Mac’s speed. (Was there a theme for this issue that no one told me about?) Matthew has a how-to for installing a cooling fan in our beloved Cube. (For the record, he installed it in his Cube, which is not the same as my Cube. We don’t share a Cube. I was using “our” in a communal sense, as in all Cube owners everywhere. Oh, never mind…)

Tim Allen—the photographer, not the actor (though that would be pretty cool)—shares with us some shots he’s taken around the United Kingdom, including his home town of Kent, as part of this month’s desktop pictures selection. The Usual Suspects it ain’t, but to paraphrase Bill and Ted, “Strange things are afoot at Wieser Graphics” in this month’s Cortland.

Chris Lawson tries out a pair of iPod cases, the Claro, and the PodFolio, while Linus puzzles the ins and outs of Crossword Forge. Chris Dudar dives in to digital watermarking with iWatermark, while I am underwhelmed by DLO’s TuneStik. Lee hauls around the Velocity Matrix Backpack, and yours truly reviews Apple’s latest game-changing device, the iPhone.

As usual, ATPM is available in a variety of formats, so you can read it however you choose.

The joys of getting older

Jim Lindberg, lead singer of Pennywise, in Punk Rock Dad:

This is all part of the game of being a parent. When I signed up to be a dad I had to leave my cool and my self-respect at the maternity room doors. On our white minivan we have no less than three life-size decals of Britney Spears’s face stuck to the windows. A friend saw me driving the wife and kids in it and said he was going to the record store to trade in all of his Pennywise records. I told him to get me the new Christina Aguilera while he was there because the kids were begging me for it.
