Basic Principles

What do you do at work?


I don’t understand the basic principles behind most things in this world.

Electronics, mechanics, computers, algebra, physics, etc        … I have no idea.

If I went back in time, I wouldn’t have too much useful information to impart. 

I’d be hard pressed to make fire actually.

I’m not a toolmaker.

But …

I do understand the basic principles behind making a cookie.

I’d like to think that would count for something … maybe a tribal elder’s daughter … or a little respect at least.



note: I’ve been making cookies at work for the last week. What have you been doing?

double note: the cookie in the bottom corner of that round plate is supposed to be Mike Wazowski from Monsters, Inc.

triple note: I’m off for a 3 day “business trip” to Nagoya on Thursday, so there might be a bunch of entries coming on as I clean out the doodads and dribs and drabs piling up around here.


notes to myself #39

Everything you need to know, you learn from both of your parents … whether you are paying attention or not.
(quite a scary thought really)

Time Machinations

I put some money in her cup, but she didn't move at all! Stupid street performer!


If I had a time machine, I’d go back to about 3 minutes ago

… because I really liked the song I just heard on the radio.


note: nobody wants a parsley, sage, or rosemary machine; always a thyme machine!

double note: actually if I had a time machine I’d go back to a few minutes before I took this photo, so I could wait until after the women who laughed at me while I took this photo had walked by before I took this photo.
