+Olav Folland I didn't mean sizewise. I meant reachwise. I can manage 30 students in my class as one person. If I were more efficient, or more experienced really, I could handle 40. I've seen teacher do this. If you are efficient at your job, you accomplish more as a whole without extra help. Some things will require the same number of people regardless, i.e., safety checkers, but not most jobs.

One of my recent pieces.  If you like it, feel free to poke around at my galleries.  I can almost guarantee there's something you'd like to adorn your walls.

Apparently I was bored.

011 = international dialing
211 = heath & human services (to help you figure out to call for help)
311 = non-emergency services (say you wanted to complain about your neighbor's lawn or something
411 = "information".  Pre-internet, you'd call that number if you were trying to find a phone number, or whatever else.  Usually that is/was billable.
511 = transportation services.  Road info, etc.
611 = the phone company.  Billing, service problems, whatever.  This number works by just having the phone plugged into the wall (it's also reserved for cellphones)
711 = phone assistance for deaf people.  Deaf folks had a phone that (is) was like an electronic typewriter with a screen they could read.  711 transposed the voice on the other end to text, and vice-versa
811 = if you want to dig a hole in your yard, call them and they'll mark out where the gas lines and stuff are
911 = emergency stuff

Unfortunately there's a lot of ambiguity about 111 so I don't have a definitive answer for that.  It may mask caller ID

Strangely drawn to watch Richard III.  I'll probably have to stop half-way through so Kat doesn't get spoilers, but whatver.

And I promise, this has nothing to do with anything in the current news, except perhaps all the NSA BS that's still going on.

I should watch Titus, as well...

Pacino's documentary might not speak to many.

When I was a kid my Mom was involved in community theatre—so I had opportunity to see the development of of a play.

Pacino's Richard was just that: a documentary following the development of a play.

I'm freaking done.  I want off this planet at the earliest convenience (if anyone knows anyone at Woomera and Jodrell Bank, please hook me up).  

I know the kind of woman that would wear this - they're smart, they're funny, they're confident, and they don't take themselves too seriously. Quite unlike the lunatics quoted in the article.

Well, okay, there are pretty, pretty princess that would wear this too - once, at their bachelorette party.

But, this just sums up the sort of culture we've become.  Everyone (it seems) is running around looking for things to be offended by, and will come up with some seriously weird justifications so they can martyr themselves.  I want no more of it.
This “Trophy” T-shirt, on sale at Target, has sparked an online backlash against the retailer.

Ugh.  I need to sell a buttload of photos and books (or something creative) so I can set this laptop on fire and put it out with a rather large axe.  

So if you want anything, or have some brilliant ideas, please do let me know.

edit: sorry, you probably don't know what the hell I'm talking about.

I haven't watched The Pink Panther in a couple of years, but this is always a welcome earworm.

Also, this movie will always be David Niven and Peter Sellers.  Sorry :)

I don't recommend it, but sometimes being a gimp doesn't completely suck.


edit: they were very cool about the whole thing.  They had a bunch of free scooters (like the one I'm sitting in) as well as a whole bunch of 4-seat carts to take people between holes and stuff.  Some of the bigger holes even had spots where we didn't have to drag ourselves into the grandstands.  Good times.

Granted, it's been 10+ years since I ate there, but it's still something we talk about. The setting is gorgeous, the food phenomenal, the experience memorable - put it this way, if I were anywhere near, I'd go well out of my way for dinner. By memorable, I texted my ex earlier today, making sure I was right that we'd actually stayed in Kobern-Gondorf, and her response was "yes, remember that restaurant?" And her mom, who'd told us about it took my son to Germany over the summer and that was a 'must stop'. She reported that it was as wonderful as ever. I can't speak to the hotel, but based on the restaurant staff, I would try to book a room there before I tried any other +place as well.

Overpriced, over-condimented and poorly cooked. Basically, $13 gets you an admittedly large fish taco, but its so smothered in veggies, refried beans, and what tastes like picante sauce made in New York City that you'd be better off eating, well, anywhere else. If you do manage to find a piece of fish in all that, you'll the so-called "grilled" option resembles sad, gray lumps that would make the former (Ahi the day we were there) owners of the flesh spin in their watery graves. Two stars because the portions of whatever it us they served us were large, and still not as bad as Taco Bell (though not by much)

You know what they say about Army Depots - unexploded ordinance, chemicals with funny names that will melt your brain, stuff that glows in the dark... Well, the Sacramento Army Depot was closed in 1995, and was designated a Superfund site in 1987. What does that mean? Well for SAAD, it means that the dirt is clean and most of the nasty chemicals have been removed from the groundwater - save a few places but as of the US EPA evaluation in 2012 it seems the groundwater mitigation will be done soon too. So, 4 stars out of 5 for reducing (if not virtually eliminating) the chance of a Zombie Apocalypse starting there.

Fresh fish and a friendly staff. Oh, and phenomenal rolls. I swear I'm addicted to the barbecued albacore though. One caveat - Thursday nights are $1 sake nights. The service can be slow because it can be crazy busy.

Shige has to be one of the best sushi places in the Sac Metro area. Unlike the loud, sports-bar atmosphere of Mikuni's, the atmosphere is subdued, and much more an atmosphere dedicated to people that are serious about fish. The staff, from the waitpersons that run the tables to whichever chef is working, are always courteous and helpful - we've even had several nights where we've sat at the bar, and the chef has made up rolls on the fly to suit our whims. The fish itself, is exemplary. Always perfectly fresh and delicate. If you need your sashimi fix, you won't go wrong. I also highly recommend the monkfish liver appetizer - we've been known to make the trek over there sometimes just for that. All in all, I consider it a must try.
