Iambic, Therefore I Are

I’m back at work now and I guess, staying up late and
getting up early for all the Christmas festivities must have
lowered my resistance. By Monday night, I was aching in all
my joints, coughing, and had a sore throat. I tried going to
sleep at 8:30pm (20:30) but awoke every hour or two until my
usual wake up time of 4:45am.

Staying at work on Tuesday was really difficult because
the A/C was turned down so much my nose (and other
appendages) was turning blue. But since I needed to be at
work for a scheduled conference call I came in and stayed the
day. I didn’t make it in after that but have recovered enough
to drag myself in for the last day of the work year. But
enough whining. As a poet once said, it could be verse.

I saw

this local TV news report

recently in which a woman alleges that the iPod she bought
from the Honolulu Wal*Mart actually didn’t have an iPod in
the box. What she displayed to the camera looked like plastic
wrapped dog food. Sites like Gizmodo and Engadget picked the
story up and eventually updated it saying an internal
Wal*Mart investigation indicates a former employee made the
switch to that, and other iPod boxes.

So, to all you kids out there who got a lump of meat in
your stocking for Christmas, it’s not because you were

Happy New Year!

This is my last post for this year. My next one will
probably be on Tuesday, January 3rd, 2006. I wish you all the
best in 2006. May we have peace, joy, and understanding.

Happy New Year, Everyone –
