Is this it? Maybe? I don’t know.
But not really. I decided to start over. Clean break, you know the deal. I wanted something I could attach my name to without worrying about colleagues stumbling upon it, something maybe a bit more connected to my work, something a little less random and silly, which, you know, might be a whole lot worse. Regardless, it just didn’t feel right to do that here.
Anyway, the new me, the better me, the worse me, the whatever me, he’s over here: bad bad batz.
Question of the day.
Things that break your heart: when your two year old son looks through the soundproof glass at his day-old little brother hooked up to wires in the NICU and says, “He’s my brother! I want to hold him! I want to hold him!,” and you have to say, “Sorry, buddy, he’s with the doctors right now. You can hold him when he’s all better. He’ll be coming home soon.”
Which he will, but still, this week is a bruiser.
I wait I wait I wait I wait My time is water down a drain
Everybody’s moving Everybody’s moving Everything is moving, Moving, moving, moving
Please don’t leave me to remain
The inspirational, aspirational art above my toilet…
“Am I a Muppet, or am I a man? If I’m a man, I’m a Muppet of a man.”

My mom sent me more “art.” Digital print, signed, titled “Irresistable.” I beg to differ.
I love the woman but for chrissakes this has got to stop. This one barely fits in the trash can.
I kept putting it off for the hassle, particularly because of dealing with phone mail access, but it was a breeze, and the device specific password is divine inspiration. Unlike so many of the recent Google actions, in which they seem to be throwing garbage products out and hoping they’ll stick, or else deprecating features everyone loves to conform to some boring-ass universal Google megasite, this 2-step password verification deal is simple, well-thought through, and cleanly implemented. The 3 minute video explaining how to do it is very helpful and addresses all the normal concerns — what if I don’t have my phone, etc.
Seriously, do it. Otherwise, it’s gonna be like that time when you forgot to backup your term paper and your computer crashed, and you lost everything. Except it’s going to be soooooo much worse.
If you can’t be bothered, read this, and rethink.

Oh man, these are soooooo lovely. Each one is a bent wire “drawing” that’s one of a kind. Any other time, I’d drop the $100 easy, but our wallets are a little thin these days. Wow.
