+George Hrab says a listener wrote him in to say that his symptoms sounded more like "Norwalk Virus" than food poisoning. As his symptoms were the same as mine and I thought food poisoning as well at first, maybe I had that. In my case, I felt nauseated 2/3 of the way through dinner. That seems to fast for food poisoning to come on.

Oh my god, this is fantastic. This captures every reason why I don't like Aaron Sorkin in a couple of minutes.

I'm listening to +Dan Benjamin and Merlin Mann talking about the their kids watching tv/movies with pop culture references before their time. This is completely not new. Watch any Bugs Bunny cartoon from the 1940s and it will be full of pop culture references that are mostly lost to time.

Remember the one about a crooner that was clearly Frank Sinatra but the gag is that he was so skinny you couldn't see him behind the microphone stand? Yeah, that used to be what Frank Sinatra was known for.

A certain irony: my example of pop culture that references now unknown arcana has probably not been seen by anyone under 40.

More (paper) book romance that I no longer feel. This was the comment I left:

For anyone else this would be a disorder,
Why are books exempt from you being a hoarder?

+James Williams I have 10,000 comic books in my house and I don't consider myself a hoarder because most (not all) are bagged, boarded and filed in alphabetical order. I don't disagree with much of anything you say.

However:

You do realize that I'm responding to a Dr. Seuss quote that suggests it is wonderful to fill every nook and crannie of your house with books, right? I've grown weary of "yay books (but only in paper)" as a blanket response, and suggesting that books are somehow a mystical object that live on a higher moral plane. I love reading but more and more, I hate paper books.

I was joking about the illness last week helping me get through a weight loss plateau. I don't know if it really is true, but I've been setting new 2014 lows each of the last few days.

We're traveling to grampa's house for the holiday weekend and that's always a challenge. I'll try to keep the carb consumption in hand which isn't easy with easter candy everywhere and a punkin dying to cook waffles in the hotel breakfast nook. If I go back up a few pounds, so be it. There is business travel the week after that, but at least I have control over my diet that way and can opt for high protein/ low carb options wherever possible.

I need to get a handle on my fragmentary notes in the cloud. I have things spread across text files in Dropbox, Evernote and Google Docs. I really need a coherent strategy.

That's probably a rational solution. I'm definitely underplaying the Evernote hand currently, which is part of my desire to take this back to basics and deal with this intentionally.

Originally, I had most cloud information in Google Docs. Then I spread a certain chunk of it into text files in Dropbox for ease of accessing on my then phone. Now I can use either with equal ease, so that isn't driver but I have this third player in the mix. I do more of my work note taking in Evernote, so I don't know if that is the partition.

Like I said, I just have to sit down and really think through my needs and desires and use cases.

This story Jay Mohr is telling to +Jackie Kashian about a guy teaching him to play craps is cracking me up at my desk. It's exactly my experience when I've tried to learn.

"The guy that taught me to play was a gambling addict so he taught me with that sped up mania. 'Put that right there on the "Come" line and if you want the hard eight, just... no not that. OK, ahhh we lost. Now move that ... this is good, you won $40.'  I'm not learning anything. It's just chips moving back and forth. It's like the tide. In and out, mostly out."

This had never happened before. Listening to WTF podcast - when Marc Maron starts talking about Time Warner Cable, I am now fast-forwarding until he stops from now until he stops talking about them.

Does Elsa building the ice palace in Frozen remind anyone else of Doctor Manhattan building the palace on Mars in Watchmen ?
