I'm this close to buying a Rio 500 or a minidisc player, but then I see this and know I could get ten hours of music for a lower price (and same size package) as the Rio or an MD player. Unfortunately, it's not out yet, but they claim to be starting their production run this week. I want one of these mp3 CDR players so bad I can't stand it.

I spent time with my family down in LA this weekend and it was great. I tried to avoid the TV and cnn.com as much as possible, as the Elian overload was too much to take (I did enjoy the exchanges on MetaFilter though).

I could write volumes on the subject, but I'll try to be as concise as possible: be skeptical. Be skeptical of everything you're seeing (especially what you're seeing) and reading, as the whole thing smacks of a perverted election-year political game. Put even more simply, the spin doctors are tugging your heart strings for a vote. Both sides of the political system, the newspapers, and the television news are all guilty of doing it, and I find the whole thing revolting.

Be skeptical.

After hearing everyone I know rave about Kozmo, I finally decided to give them a try. About a half hour after I hit "submit order," I had some cookies, ben and jerry's, and a copy of the 20th Anniversary edition Caddyshack DVD.

So I've got that goin' for me...which is nice.

The delivery was perfect, quick, and easy. I have a feeling I'll be using Kozmo a lot in the future.

ugh. I wish I could write something bright and cheery here today: things are going fine, and I got to hang out with someone I really admire today, but I feel like crap. For the first time in my life, I have allergies. After spending the last three years indoors in hyper-filtered, air-conditioned, sterile comfort at UCLA, I'm now prone to pollen. It's funny, but something that's just slightly irratating by itself, like a never-ending runny nose, can make everything worse.

blah. make it stop.

Today's lunch with the deepleapers was terrific, I've never had really good sushi before. We passed everything around and I got some yellow tail, eel, spicy tuna, scallops, avocado, and shrimp tempura rolls. It was great, makes me want to learn to make it.
