What I'm thankful for, in no particular order:

Health, meine frau, Amazon, kosher birds, little girls (but not in a Hugh Hefner sort of way), Trader Joe's, SANS, friends & family, au pairs - past and present, white hats, black hats, shawarma, Google, Pi, Dunk's medium Iced coffee /w milk and sugar.

Jacques & Julia, Gravity, Moore's Law, xkcd, The First Law of Thermodynamics, Gatorade, tolerance, Burrito Bros Taco Company, patience, or rather, waiting for patience - oh the irony!)

Irony, serendipity, Onomatopoeia, Asimov's Third Law of Robotics, green m&ms, Pern - and the Dragonriders therein, Bob Lassiter (RIP), Gator Nation, the MD5 Algorithm, engaging students, newegg, PV=nRT, Imitrex, home - 127.0.0.1, and especially ::1, browser logs, the S-Box, many of my former coworkers at BBN/GTE/Genuity/Level 3, Golden Oreos.

The occasional McDonald's cheeseburger, tolerance, forgiveness, the ability to admit mistakes, Jimmy Buffett and the concept of Margaritaville, curiosity, Emma's Pizza, The First and Second Laws of Village Idiocy, being well-traveled, Penn & especially Teller, TiVo, the @ sign, the Octothorpe, Python, perl, regular expressions.

Reliable electrical service, people who do the right thing, my citizenship, the idea that "Daddy!" is a complete sentence, Weißbier, Password Safe, The Red Line, Jet Blue, The Beale Treasure - wherever it is, Douglas Adams, Feynman, Einstein & Galileo.

Posting this for two reasons. 1) Makes you think. 2) The guy is a BoSox fan. Gotta love Venn diagrams.

A mother passing by her daughter's bedroom was astonished to see the bed was nicely made and everything was picked up. Then she saw an envelope propped up prominently on the center of the bed. It was addressed, "Mom." With the worst premonition, she opened the envelope and read the letter with trembling hands: Dear Mom: It is with great regret and sorrow that I'm writing you. I had to elope with my new boyfriend because I wanted to avoid a scene with Dad and you. I've been finding real passion with Ahmed and he is so nice-even with all his piercings, tattoos, beard, and his motorcycle clothes. But it's not only the passion Mom, I'm pregnant and Ahmed said that we will be very happy. He already owns a trailer in the woods and has a stack of firewood for the whole winter. He wants to have many more children with me and that's now one of my dreams too. Ahmed taught me that marijuana doesn't really hurt anyone and we'll be growing it for us and trading it with his friends for all the cocaine and ecstasy we want. In the meantime, we'll pray that science will find a cure for AIDS so Ahmed can get better; he sure deserves it!! Don't worry Mom, I'm 15 years old now and I know how to take care of myself. Someday I'm sure we'll be back to visit so you can get to know your grand children. Your daughter, Judith... PS: Mom, none of the above is true. I'm over at the neighbor's house. I just wanted to remind you that there are worse things in life than my report card that's in my desk center drawer. I love you! Call when it is safe for me to come home..

A story similar to this pops up over the years. I remember one where the girl asks for money for college.

I've been writing a lot of Python lately. Learning it, mostly on my own. Been lots of fun building custom classes, such as list of dictionaries of tuples, and that sort of thing. I call them "stuples".

This man put the R in K&R, and a little white book on college campuses everywhere.
