You know your getting old when…

When someone you last saw as a little girl years ago is now a pretty young lady.

It seemed like only yesterday that I helped her father build a swing set in their backyard, and now she's a college student and an actress guest staring on two different prime time television shows.

I went to college with her aunt (who was at my wedding) and have known that entire family for a long time. Recently, we got a Christmas card from them and I called them up to see how they are all doing. It was really nice to catch up after all this time and we'll all have dinner  in a couple  of weeks.

Off hand, 2007 is starting right. 

Music I'm listening to right Now:

"The Birthday Song" by Corrinne May from the "Safe in a Crazy World" Album.

Odd marketing…


Taser C2

ColorsWhile browsing thru the CES coverage, I saw this on Engadget. This is the Taser C2 and while I'm not sure it's a good idea for Civilians to have access to one of these, I thought was very interesting is that it comes in multiple colors.

Out of Curiosity, if you have one of these, do you really care what color it comes in?? Will you match it to you purse or do you want to Clash?
Very different…

In other news, my wife and I smelled (smelt??) the Mysterious Gas Smell, discussed on Gothamist, getting off the bus on 34th St. It was very odd and I couldn't smell it walking down to work but apparently it was over a large portion of the City. My co-workers and I *think* it was a over the weekend Gas Leak that some building doesn't want to confess to. City officials are saying it probably came from New Jersey, but who knows? 

Music I'm listening to right Now:

"Big Bang Baby" (Seemed appropriate!) by Stone Temple Pilots from the "Tiny Music…Songs From The Vatican Gift Shop " Album.
