Random Wednesday

I'm watching a Dr. Seuss cartoon we DVRed before Christmas. Actully it's not me, the kids are watching it. (I do have to specify that, you'd be surprised.) The books are better by far. It's not that the animation is bad, but the songs are really REALLY bad.

A story on All Things Considered today followed an apprentice tailor. He's studying under an 89 year old man who learned to be a tailor in Italy and has run a shop in Ardmore, PA for 51 years. The young tailor's name is Joe Genuardi. Watch this name, I bet you in 15-20 years there will be a line of clothing called Genuardi and the tagline will be Genuine Genuardi.

Futurama is on Comedy Central now.

Seen on Boing Boing, the Leggett & Platt Starry Night Bed comes with a badass PC, wifi, surround sound posts, projector TV headboard, LCD display, individual temperature control and to top it off, it has a vibration sensor that can tell if you snore and then raises the bed 7° to get you back to normal. For $25,000 it can be yours.

A Texas Commission is running a voucher program to get old cars off the road. If you qualify you can receive up to $3,500 in vouchers for use on a new car.

Basketball started up again after the winter break. Everyone's back at work and assuredly a little heavier thanks to the thick and sugary holidays. Ms. A and G-man had to get a laptop from Chip and dropped by to pick it up. G-man got to see his daddy put the last game away with a three pointer.

We're renewing our lease, which works out cuz Ms. A is painting walls.

All I got for now. Carry on.
