My cubemate walked into the office yesterday like it was just another day, then at noon he got a phone call from his family in India telling him his father died unexpectedly. He hasn’t been back to India for quite some time, but was on a four o’clock flight later that same afternoon.
If your parents are alive, call them today.
If you don’t have any living parents, tell your kids you love them.
If you don’t have either, tell someone you care about what they mean to you.
My allergies have been killing me.
Chase has those “Pick Up The Tab” commercials where they tell you that one of your purchases could spontaneously be paid for by them. I always thought that either I wouldn’t win or if I did, they would pick up the tab on a small fast food purchase or something.

I hear the new Cowboys Stadium is in the world record books for having the most HD televisions in one place, 3000 of them. I wonder if they got a discount for a bulk order.
My laptop came back in the mail yesterday. So far, so good. The only thing I still can’t figure out is hooking it via HDMI to a big screen. When I do that, I can’t get the sound to transfer, so it’s probably just a setting issue.

Tony Blair was on Letterman. It was quite interesting.
