Notes from Today

  • Someone at The Province has a brain: I’d no idea that restaurateur was a valid alternative to restauranteur
  • It’s a small world: my friend Evan has just started school at the London School of Economics. He posted some pics, in which I thought I saw, in the back corner, half the face of the younger sister of an old high school friend of mine. Turns out it is indeed her. It’s strange that I recognized her from a half of a face that I’ve not seen since probably 1995. And I can’t say I knew her well back then. She was a couple of grade beneath me, I believe.
  • I saw another weird Media Interventions thing today: This one was a barcode with nice leafy vines around it. Underneath, it said ‘growth. It’s another head-scratcher.
  • I had a minor freak-out today: I’m going to be a quarter-century old next week. It seems such a definite sign of something, although I’m not sure what. I feel, even though I’ve in some ways done so much in my short life, that I should have done so much more before this date. I mean—I’ve never gone skydiving! Or biked across Canada! Or made a feature film! Or a million other things I could have done, but haven’t. And yes, I have lots of time. But that’s a rational thought, and there is no rationalizing a minor freak-out. They just happen
  • I had lunch today at a greasy spoon, instead of from the excellent French bakery down the street, and it totally hit the spot.
  • For the first time in a long, long time, there was nothing urgent on my work to-do list. So I got caught up on some less urgent things, leaving me with a remarkably light to-do list, until at least tomorrow, when I expect responses that should engender change in my to-do-lessness (new word!) status.

  1. Standards my ass! Y’know, I am impressed when I see people doing the all-div/no-table layouts, but Man, I use IE6 and cannot select text with my mouse! That drives me f’n nuts!

    For years I’ve been addicted to selecting text and images with my mouse while browsing web sites. I can typically tell how a site is sewn together by highlighting it.

    DIV’ed out sites? No. I can’t select anything.

    Yeah, I know, standards standards standards… but disabling all IE users from selecting a peice of text? Did you consider that? Asdf?

    Has this been brought up elsewhere?
