It's a little early. I think next week will be really spectacular.

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:

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.

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.

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!

This is the best drycleaners I've ever been to.

This place is tiny, but wonderful. I love the communal tables, and the fact that they'll let you taste all of the wines. We ended up having a great conversation over dessert with the couple sitting next to us. The smoked fish crostinis are great, and so was the pasta. Next time, I'll try one of the fish mains.

The mac and cheese spring rolls were pretty good and the Fashionista cocktail was so good I had two. But otherwise, a little greasy and not a lot of vegetarian options.

For 200 pounds a night, you expect a pretty nice hotel, right? Well, I'm sorry to tell you that this isn't it. The number one thing you want from a hotel is a comfortable night's sleep, and when you combine the horribly poky and uncomfortable mattress with the squealing pipes at 5am, the Point simply didn't deliver. Aside from that, the whole place just looks old and rundown, with the feel of a 1970's convention center, and a slightly mildewy smell in the bathroom. This was by far the worst, and the most expensive, place I stayed in on my recent trip to Scotland. I understand that the city gets crowded in August, but this is just unacceptable.

Bring a picnic or a bicycle and spend the whole afternoon. This is an astonishingly beautiful sculpture garden with neat surprises around every corner.

I booked a cut and single-process color here through Lifebooker, and now I have learned my lesson about getting my hair cut anywhere without a personal recommendation. The color turned out fine, but the cut looks like some ridiculous mushroom-cut from the 80's. About 5 minutes in, I wanted to scream at the guy cutting my hair to put the scissors down and let me out of there, but it was too late and I had to let him finish. This is seriously the worst haircut I've ever gotten. My only consolation is that hair grows, so this won't last long, and I live in Brooklyn, so I can pretend I'm a stupid hipster who got an ugly haircut on purpose.
