Your Thoughts, Please

September 30, 2009

Ok, so check this: A blind man was begging in a city park.  Someone approached and asked him whether people were giving generously.  The blind man shook a nearly empty tin. His visitor said to him, “Let me write something on your card.”  The blind man agreed.  That evening the visitor returned.  “Well, how were […]

BuddyPress? (And Other Things)

September 29, 2009

Goddamn, if this blog gets any more self-referential, I’m going to stop reading it.  That said, what do you think about me installing BuddyPress on this site?  It would basically turn The Quixotic Jedi into a networking site – kind of like facebook or LinkedIn or whatever.  That means you, dear reader, would be able […]

No Post Today

September 28, 2009

It’s after 1AM and I need to get my ass in bed.  I’m planning on leaving work early, so I don’t think they’d cotton too well to me getting in late as well. Feel free to blog int he comments section.  One of these days, I’ll set up BuddyPress and y’all can be friends with […]

Cooking Today

September 27, 2009

I’ll be making chili tomorrow.  Or rather, I’ll be making chili today, as I assume you’re reading this on Sunday, dear reader. Back in, um, maybe 2000 (?) my parents bought me a 5-gallon stockpot for christmas.  I don’t think I was married yet, but I was getting close.  I used to spend a day […]

Vanilla Solitude

September 25, 2009

Overall, I think the sin I struggled with most during my trip to San Diego was envy.  I’d like to discuss this at length, but I’m tired and would like to make it to work on time tomorrow – even if it is a Friday.  So this will be short. [Famous last words of Ted […]

Ramblings of the Flight Back to NJ

September 24, 2009

I’m only typing now because I find in soothing.  I’m sitting on the plane on the way home from San Diago (home of Ron Burgundy).  I couldn’t tell you whether the guy next to me is reading this as I’m typing it, but if he is – hi.  Maybe it would be a good idea […]

First Night in CA

September 21, 2009

Ok.  So here I am in the “business center” of the hotel (Four Seasons – wicked expensive), typing on a fancy keyboard with one of its feet missing.  The screen is effin huge, which is kind of nice, but I’m also WAY up close to it.  I’m at this computer because one of the feet […]

Goin’ to California

September 21, 2009

But not the same way as in the Led Zeppelin song; I’m off to the left coast for business.  Though I suppose I kind of do have an achin’ in my heart.  There’s a hedge fund activism conference in San Diego, and I’m the stand-in for the guy who couldn’t go.  I don’t remember who.  […]

Friday Randomness

September 18, 2009

I can’t blog to friggin’ Bob Marley.  I have no idea why, but I can’t seem to keep to a line of thought when I’m listening to the guy.  I’ve got nothing against Bob – hell, like three or four of his discs in a row are in my regular cd queue (which is my […]

Your Thoughts, Please

September 15, 2009

My zen-a-day calendar has been a bit list-happy for the past few days.  Yesterday’s quote (which is today’s quote for me, because you’re now reading something that was written in the past (yay time capsules)) was, I thought (try to follow me, here dear reader, without criticizing my tense-usage), pretty darned apropos and pragmatically…well…Zen: Get […]
