Introduction
I'm not that tall, you're just that short.  
I hope to set an example, you know, for children and stuff.

Circles I think I belong in:
Bike stuff
Gadgets
Really cool science stuff
Angry Birds
Strangers to "Hangout" with
Totally awesome people I'd have never met without Google+

Bragging rights
1) my boss's boss's boss said"as much as I like you Tom, it's a terrible feeling to come back from a meeting and see you standing in my office smiling." 2) I saved a friend from a fire... 3) recently learned that I'm the least annoying customer at my LBS

Dear +Microsoft Corporation,

No, I still don't want to install Silverlight on my server.

Thanks!

do you ever have dreams? not like the kind where your girlfriend is selling frozen confections with Shaq? like where you have some sort of aspiration, some thing you want to work towards?

My dream is to work a 30 hour week and regain the ability to feel as though that work is genuinely meaningful and with sufficient freedom to get back to work hard, play hard. This work hard, work hard ratio is bullshit.

On a scale of 1 to 5, where 5 is "I love talking on the phone" and 1 is "omfg, I'd rather live in a third world country", how do you feel about initiating conversations with strangers on the telephone?

Was a '1', but had a job that required lots of phone calls to strangers, so had to coerce myself to a '3' so I could sound like a '5' on the phone. Then take cold showers in the fetal position.

This morning I had a peach for breakfast. It was juicy and flavorful and I just couldn't figure out why it tasted so weird. Then I realized that I had a large nectarine for breakfast.

Just after turning off the shower and grabbing a towel is the worst time to hear the ice cream truck.

I'll tell you what I tell the kids: They play the music when they've run out of ice cream.

I rode the old Raleigh Olympian this morning. Another cyclist in the building struck up a conversation about how un-fun those old bikes were to ride, and picked up the bike to illustrate what he meant. I was like, Of course he had no way to know that I had a 12lb lock and chain in the bag, nor did he consider that my bike is 11 sizes larger than his. Plus I know that he commutes on a 90s hybrid that has similar shitty components on a heavy (because it's cheap) aluminum frame with a shitty suspension fork, fenders, a cheap rack, and cheap bags. I bet my bike is 5lbs lighter than his the way we both ride them.

Somehow I managed not to yell at him for touching my bike. I deserve an award....
