Ever walk up the stairs in the dark and think there's one more step but there's not so instead of looking like a master thief you look like a clod-hopping monster but it's dark so no one sees it and you're strangely glad?

Yeah, me neither.

On the plane today I got talking to the young woman (fresh out of high school) in the seat next to me. We were talking about books, and I'm an author. Yada yada. I start telling her about my new MG book, and the easiest shorthand for me to describe the setting is the forest on Endor—you know, a forest, with the massive trees—but I was worried even before I pulled out the reference that she might have no clue what Endor is. So instead of just throwing Endor out there, I kind of sidle up to the reference and say: have you seen Star Wars? Not only had she not seen it, she stared at me LIKE SHE DIDN'T KNOW WHAT IT WAS!

I wanted to laugh. I wanted to cry. But mostly, I felt old, a dusty relic from some bygone age. Sigh.

There's an XM Radio station called Ozzy's Boneyard. I find this amusing. Also made me think of +peterorullian. In a good way. #devilhorns

Chef (Jon Favreau) was like a breath of fresh air. One of the best movies I've seen in recent years. Foodies, esp, take note!

Haven’t verified any of the numbers leading to 5-8 month payback, but payback is getting shorter and shorter and shorter…

Anti-renewable energy people often claim that it takes a lot of energy to make wind turbines so they aren't as clean as they seem. Let's look at the facts.

Yeah, I've heard stuff like this, yet no one ever talks about how much energy went into extracting that gallon of gasoline from the ground.  I have heard about it for ethanol, and I have serious doubts about the viability of that one.

Hit 70k in #Winterwatch. Another 3-4 chapters, 6-8k, and I think it's done. Zeroth draft, that is. Then it's on to the first major rewrite.

Just made a massive, clumsy leap of logic in #Winterwatch. Cool thing is, it's the right logic; I just need to lay the groundwork properly. #amwriting

I've been here several times because I'm a bit of a pizza nut. They do a very nice job with their pizzas. The decor is nice and interesting. And the service has always been nice and attentive. Well worth a try if you enjoy a good slice.

This is a beautiful restaurant in a nice, if corporate, area of Shelton. The food was of the highest quality. I had the buffalo mozzarella, prosciutto, and artichoke antipasto plate, and it was excellent. The rose of salmon was very nicely balanced. The strong cherry and balsamic sauce mixed well with the salmon and horseradish mashed potatoes. And the tiramisu had a very luscious and delicate flavor. If I had any quibbles, it was that the salmon was very slightly undersalted, and the tiramisu had too much cocoa powder. But really, these were very minor complaints. The food was some of the highest quality I've ever had. Worth it if you're looking for a swank place to have a special dinner.

I called Weather Tight after seeing such good reviews. However, I never got past the initial phone call. They asked if I was married. I said yes. They then proceeded to ask that I pick a time that my wife and I were both available. I was not trying to exclude my wife--far from it--but we're both busy, so I said I would be the only one meeting with them. At which point they flat out refused to schedule the appointment with me. I understand that they want to sell to both the husband and wife, but I completely disagree with an insistence that both be there simply to come out and provide an estimate. I told them no thanks and moved on. Sigma Exteriors, which also got great ratings, scheduled this simple appointment with no problems, so I'll be going with them.
