Was in bed long before midnight, so happy belated new year. And now, at the airport on my way back to winter.

They say that what you do during the new year, you are going to do all year. So, you are going to have a year full of good sleep!

Amazing sculpture garden in Antwerp. I accidentally ended up on a honeymoon.

So while getting my things together after a particularly rough opt-out groping, I watched a pilot, in uniform, get his wrench taken away. "Forget the logic," said the TSA goon, "The rules say no tools over 7 inches."

+Fred Blau , also post pat-down, pointed out that he's over 7 inches tall and he's definitely a tool. I noted that in a few minutes, the pilot would be in possession of a really dangerous weapon, namely an airplane. TSA goon announced that we should leave the security area once we were done collecting our belongings.

Oh! Fred also managed to learn that they will only pat you down on the parts of your body covered with clothing. The day that I strip down at a security check is getting closer and closer. I just have to decide what airport I don't mind getting banned from for life. Maybe Newark.

I made some hamentashen. +Rachel Hyman made me blog about them so that I could then also pin them on Pinterest. This whole social media thing is exhausting.

+Michael Berman There aren't enough +1's in the world.
+Frank Broz This particular dough is more like a shortbread cookie than a pie crust, but I think regular cookie dough wouldn't hold shape. Maybe extra flour could make it stiffer.

Just past 8 am and people are drinking beer in the Brussels airport. You have to love it.

I read this poem out loud to +Fred Blau, which led to a discussion of why is English so freaking crazy, and the answer - The Great Vowel Shift of the 15th century. This page has a couple of audio clips:
http://www.nsf.gov/news/special_reports/linguistics/paths.jsp

After you listen to those, watch this guy recite some Chaucer, to really understand that Middle English vowels are actually French vowels, which makes the whole thing makes sense:
Pronouncing Middle English Vowels

The following page is the best argument for English-language spelling reform I have yet to see.
