Five things for today

  1. Whenever I've attempted to watch the Winter Olympics since they started last Friday, all I've seen are commercials and curling.
  2. Last Thursday, NPR reported a recently recovered 1969 Abe Lincoln 90 cent postage stamp; on Friday Dan Brekke sent me a link to the story; whereupon, I added it to my delicious bookmarks; today my local newspaper is reporting the story as breaking news
  3. I had the most delicious cheese jalapeno soup for dinner tonight; it was simple, yet complicated, in flavor and aroma, and very spicy
  4. When I was taking some pictures in the park today, I spotted someone else taking pictures; I wonder if he was a photo blogger
  5. I'm thinking of a number between one and ten

Hate to say it, but I have questioned if other people blog too.

It's 2006, who doesn't have one yet?

4) Was it City park in New Orleans? It might have been me.

shoo, you'd think, eh?

Rob, I wish it was City Park.

1. I like curling; I think all physics students should play it. What a great way to learn about momentum, viscosity, and drag. I used to see it on Canadian Broadcasting when I lived in Michigan. But I've yet to watch any of the Olympics.
4. How does photo blogging differ from regular blogging?

Don, 5 sounds wonderfully exotic.

1. I saw some swede yelling at his... whatever the damn things are called. Never knew curling to be so intense.
(Actually, I saw a bit of it in the 02 Olympics. Still don't understand it. At all. I am from too far south, I guess.)

2. Newspaper is a dying media. I wonder if they know that yet.

5. Pi?
