Get A Job
Gorgeous morning. Sky blue, air crisp, bit of wind. Just beautiful. So much so that I got on the shuttle this morning, sat there for thirty seconds, then got up and said "On second thought, I think I'll walk." Everyone stared as I got off. It was the best.

I'd like to remind you all that International Talk Like A Pirate Day is tomorrow. Please plan accordingly.

Show of hands: how many of you remember the band Sha Na Na? Some of you, yes, some of you, no, and some of you are lying. Fine. I am amused to report that one of the founding members, Rob Leonard, is a Professor of Linguistics and Swahili at Hofstra University in New York. He's also the Director of the Forensic Linguistics Project and has trained investigators from the FBI, the NYPD, the Secret Service, and the ATF.
Kind of makes you wonder what you'll be doing in thirty years, doesn't it?
