The ongoing saga of a programmer who doesn't live in Boston, nor does he even like Boston, but yet named his weblog/journal “The Boston Diaries.”

Steven Spielberg And The Curse Of George Lucas

Alright folks, let's get this show on the road. I want to make it to Country Buffet by four.
Pryvet, Harrison. I am evil Soviet. You vill help me find Moose and Squirrel, yes?
Holy Christ, you're not going to talk like that the whole movie are you?
Da. You vill help locate MacKuffin now.

You know …

Just …

Arg! Words fail …

Why Steven? Why?

At least now I get to make my own hours …

The job has:

Would you work with micromanaging boss, no salary, and all your work thrown away?

I worked a job like that once, only it started at 7:30am. And yes, it was just as sucky as the job above was described. And I still have flashbacks. It sucked.

I'm glad I no longer have to go there anymore.

Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo.

For Bunny, who likes grammar and word play.

The title of this post? It's a grammatically correct sentence wouldn't you know.

Also, add punctuation to this sentence to make it correct:

James while John had had had had had had had had had had had a better effect on the teacher

And finally, while not English, here's a poem in a dialect of Chinese that's just as confusing as the “Buffalo buffalo” sentence.

For those with more time than money

Final link for the day (yea!)—for my friends who play Dungeons & Dragons; too cheap to spring for metal miniatures?

Try origami miniatures (link via columbina), some of which are to scale.

You have my permission to link freely to any entry here. Go ahead, I won't bite. I promise.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent links to that entry only. The format for the links are simple: Start with the base link for this site:, then add the date you are interested in, say 2000/08/01, so that would make the final URL:

You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.

You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that important.
