“ouch! I just shot myself in the foot”

“ouch! I just shot myself in the foot”

That must have been Bruce Chizen’s reaction four months ago when he found out the crack legal team at Adobe decided to sue Microsoft for including the export to PDF function in Office 2007 Beta. As a result Microsoft has removed this function entirely from Office 2007. However, you can still do it by downloading a plug-in (thank god!). Adobe has long touted PDF as the “standard” for web documents. I guess Adobe didn’t look up the definition of “standard”…

Thursday morning I left Burbank soil and touched down left of the bay. I arrived early at the Bob Hope United terminal expecting long lines due to recent travel regulations – and the fact that I had to check a 60 pound blue metal cube (which I’m told didn’t always have rollers on the bottom). I had parked at the tip end of parking lot A, directly under the control tower which my plane would coincidentally drive by before taking…

Okay, so apparently I’m not all that bright. I bought two big boxes of granola cereal this weekend. I checked the ingredients as I always do to make sure there were no nuts. About ten minutes ago my head started hurting. My joints felt funny and I started having pain behind my rear jaw and in my chest. I’m feeling a little light headed (still) and I feel like my pulse is quicker. I looked at the cereal box. Sure…

A few weeks ago I received a card in the mail from Warner Brothers studios. The card was an invitation to a free tour of the studio lot. At 9:45am Saturday morning myself and two friends (WB said I could bring up to three other people – Chi stayed up too late Friday and decided not to come) proceeded to the parking lot next to the WB general building. Normally parking is $5 in this lot – for us it…

Thursday night Aaron and I met up for a Tool show at Staples Center. I felt really old waiting in line next to a bunch of chain smoking goth kids with tattoos and piercings. “Studded” belts were not allowed in the building, and by the time I made it to the metal detectors each security guard had their own personal belt collection. Way to be unique children, way to be different. We actually ended up having great seats about 50…

my little problem

my little problem

After the post three weeks ago about my emergency room visit I got a response from one my friends. The friend will remain nameless as she told me someone in her family has the same problem. At first she told me this through myspace, but she sent me a more detailed email today. I’ll copy it below. –unfortunetely this might not be what I have as they looked for a “pocket” during the x-ray process. Although – since the food…
