Walked past a construction worker in Seaport- snuck a glance at the stickers festooning his hardhat, was braced for ideas I might not agree with, but foremost was a "Hardhats for Elizabeth Warren" sticker. Good lesson about not jumping to conclusions…
I wonder how long I've been casually using the New England "wicked" to mean "extremely". I think at some point I may have been using it self-consciously and ironically, but now it's just a part of how I communicate.

"Hella" might be going down the same path for me... right now I'm very aware when I use it.

Man, it feels like Chrome's spelling check suggester used to be better. Not being able to suggest "anonimized" go to "anonymized" is kind of sad, and I'm tired of copy-pasting the misspelling into Google to get the right version. (PS I hate spelling. Being a phonetic thinker makes proper spelling so difficult sometimes... I think I will never get "seperate" right on the first try.)

Man, I have never seen so many people wrestling with the (admittedly, not intuitive) MBTA card/ticket system at one time as this morning at Alewife...

"So the first thing you wanna do is get out of your wheelchair and into your walker. Now if you don't have a walker, it probably means you can actually walk - so you're already ahead of the game!"

Admittedly I sent in the link myself, but it was nice to see "So, you're going to die" getting a nice write up http://www.patheos.com/blogs/friendlyatheist/2014/04/19/an-atheists-guide-to-mortality/

Now... how to catch Boingboing's eye...

  ...of the moment  
I tend to be an "angsty" programmer... I get up and walk around and think a lot, and absent-mindedly, or semi-compulsively, drink whatever beverage is at hand. For this reason it occurs to me that having cans of lite beer at said hand might not be such a great idea for continued programming.
