Happy Buddha

Here’s a guy I saw in a Chinese restaurant in an airport. Maybe in Chicago. But I don’t remember. Looks like maybe he’s been eating a little too much. Picture courtesy of the now-retired famous RAZR-cam. Part of my famous Statue series.

The need for new Great Art grows ever more desperate. Fortunately, we have a camping trip scheduled for Thanksgiving weekend. Plus, it’s a campground we’ve never visited before, so I’ll be looking at things with a fresh eye. So hang on for a few more weeks, Loyal Readers.

There’s also the ward Halloween party this Friday, if I can remember my camera. Which will probably be difficult, as I’m planning to leave the office an hour early and go directly from the station to the church. I’ll have to either leave it in the trunk in the morning or ask the Loyal Readers to bring it for me.

I hear that Loyal Reader Number One received his computer’s memory stick in the mail and got it installed today. Hey, it’s working great! It’s amazing how much faster your computer gets when you quintuple the memory.

Speaking of Macs, I ordered Office 2008 this afternoon. We get it through work for twenty bucks, so I couldn’t resist. I recently got iWork, which I like very much (although I must admit I’m still having a hard time wrapping my mind around its paradigm), and the latest Beta of Open Office works quite well on a Mac, but there are times when you would like to have Office. Unfortunately.

I also installed Office 2007 on my laptop today. I don’t hate it yet, but I haven’t really used it much so far. I’m sure it won’t grow on me.

Today’s Morrowlife controversy: Does this look like a good retirement home?

Financial Juggernaut update: I’m up to $7.29! At this rate, I’ll be able to afford that retirement home Real Soon Now.

See you tomorrow.
