very good

Was just reading a blog post reviewing a particular product and happened to notice in the comments section someone simply wrote "very good."

I wonder, is the reveiw good? Is the product good? Are they just telling the writer "good job?"

I kind of love it.

PS - Just fyi, I don't think the product is very good, but then again, I am opposed to Bed Bath & Beyond in general.

new institution


Song of the day
One of my coworkers recently told be about an alumni relations shop that starts each morning with a "song of the day." This involves blasting music and dancing around the office to set the tone of your day. I guess its sort of like an American version of those Japanese calisthenics.

I think I will be instituting the "song of the day" in my life. It makes a difference. After I parked this morning, I rocked out in the car with an ice scraper and Boston love. Life is good.

egg jacuzzi vs. hot tub time machine


egg jacuzzi

The other day, I made an egg jacuzzi. It was unintentional, and pretty revolting.

I just wanted to poach an egg so that I could make a springtime meal that I've had on my mind. I have had varying degrees of success with eggs in the past, so studied up to make sure that I would not waste a dozen eggs. I sometimes feel like eggs and I are in a personal fight with each other, and I have developed a compulsion to throw out any egg that does not come out to my liking. Pete has rescued many an egg from my wrath.

I watched a video. I checked out multiple websites, blog comments, and consulted the Joy of Cooking. I was ready, but then my tragic flaw kicked in: I have no patience.

I decided I would make 3 poached eggs at once. End result: egg jacuzzi. Yet another sign that if I can become more patient, I will be rewarded with perfect poached eggs, less wrinkled clothing, and better relationships.


One: not the loneliest number.


Patience is a virtue.
