ex machina

small pieces of morbus loosely joined

so i'm reading danny o'brien's very amusing bit on being tasked with compiling a list of the secrets of the well-organized geek and i'm thinking when i'm reading the discussion topic that it's appropriate that morbus is on danny's list of suspects. i have no idea if morbus has any secret geeky tools underlying his prolificness , but there have been times over the years that i could be convinced that he's in about eight different places at once while being inordinately productive and helpful.

i'm thinking this while i hop over to his disobey nonsense network and i see that he's taken the polical compass test and appears to be solidly leftist/libertarian . curious to see how my own political and economic views might be categorized, i take the test and discover that i'm also leftist/libertarian . that's when kris reminds me that i'm apparently a leftist/libertarian with a bad memory since since she claims that i already took the test "a long time ago". a quick search proves that i have indeed just taken a test that i took nearly two years ago . i guess the old results prove that some things will never change. and amusingly, it also highlights my secret "geek" efficiency tool - a wife with a better memory than myself.

at this point, i'm chuckling at the small pieces loosely joined quality of unintentially illustrating an efficiency tool while pondering efficient people while hopping from website to website. and then i realize as i'm browsing around to see what else i was doing around two years ago that i might have forgotten about that i rolled about my syndication feeds at around the same time.

now things are just getting unecessarily wierd for a saturday morning since i had just written about the script i wrote to create the feeds last night. and who has a hand in helping me to make sense of rss via email? mr. morbus iff [ go back and read the beginning of the article to see how this mess started ].

frightened by where this multi-layered recursive wierdness might end, i decide that it's probably a good idea to shut the laptop and go play the part of the milk maid .

"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.
