ex machina

perception and self perception. yesterday i went to the eye doctor and found out that, while i'm not going blind, my eyesite has taken a turn for the worse. and not just a little turn for the worse. the optometrist was kind enough to point out that, in the year-and-a-half since my last eye examine, my eyesite has degraded to the point that i would no longer be able to pass the illinois driver's exam. with my contacts in place. and if that weren't enough positive news, he also pointed out, in an oddly cheerful tone that my right eye, "...seems to have a little trouble focusing." jeez louis.

in not-so-related new - via nick denton i discovered the online polical test political compass and discovered that, while i might perceive myself to be a centrist with mild liberal leanings, that i'm actually a rather strong liberal-libertarian [ -5.63 liberal/ -6.26 libertarian]. and that's after self-moderating a few of my answers. i'm honestly surprised by the results. i guess it might go a long ways towards explaining why i'm the odd man out during family holiday dinner discussions.

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
