5 Things

Ok, this is some sort of MLM thing - no, it can't be because I was tagged by my good friend Markus. Blah. I wanted to ignore it. But I can't. It has been bugging me every 10 minutes since I got the email yesterday.

So here goes.

1. I got married.
2. I am a video blogger.
3. My dog Mikey stinks because it's raining here.
4. I hate IE and Safari. I use Firefox.
5. My wife promised to bake Christmas cookies but hasn't yet. How much longer do I have to wait?

Ok. So who do I terrorize with this? Aha. Uta, of course. And then there's my friend Lucy in Portugal. She'll hate it, but she'll do it, darn it. And there's Marc in Amsterdam. Steven - no, he won't do it, but I'll try anyway. And, and, and, and... damn five. Really? Oh, sure. Of course. Jan.

Um - yeah. Gotta blog this.

Jeez. If a 10 year old comes up with this, you've just gotta support it.
At just 10-years old, Florida native and entrepreneur Lily Capehart is gaining international acclaim for her unique ability to catch and "hypnotize" the wild South Florida anole lizards.

This video has been removed due to terms of use violation.

What? I just uploaded the video of the previous post to Youtube. Just to see what happens. Well, something did happen. This video has been removed due to terms of use violation.

WTF? This is a video of the 2006 AIGA San Francisco Gala. AIGA is the professional association for design. We got permission from the AIGA SF people responsible for the event. I just sent in a help request to Youtube. I'll see if they actually reply. Maybe it's just a stupid mistake. Or maybe you can't have the word 'Adult' in the title. Or maybe you can only publish videos you grab from your TV or of your cat on the sofa. Jeez.

Big high-five to - that's where it's at. They rock!

Michael Verdi stopped by

Yeah, my good friend Michael came by for a visit - and videoblogged it. Of course! It was so nice to have him here - in the woods - in the sticks - but remember: we have DSL that's close to a T1... so it's perfect!

Yahoo Time Capsule Camp

That was a fun day - started out in Sunnyvale, took a bus to Palo Alto etc etc... I'll be posting a video soon.

And guess what - my team won!!!!!!!! We got a real medal and each of us got a portable dvd player. Never wanted one of those, but now that I have one, I might even use it!
