Chris Lott: @GardnerCampbell retweet? That’s the timer I noted in yesterday’s links… a useful idea!
Chris Lott: Now there’s a great idea: turn captchas into books: http://www.wral.com/news/technology/story/1442750/
Chris Lott: Trying unsuccessfully to explain Godel’s Incompleteness Theorem to an online friend. Like I’m right for that. Read _Godel, Escher Bach_!
Chris Lott: @matthom I don’t get much out of Facebook either— it’s just like a zillion other YASNSs
Chris Lott: All day moving the office… Internet free days at work, horrible. Internet free days otherwise, blissful.
Chris Lott: Dreamed I was 1/2 size, riding a tiny motorcycle in endless ovals in my back yard while my biological father chased me. Paging Dr. Freud…
Chris Lott: @dnorman About 600 feeds (that could be the problem) — many are just occasional, topical, project feeds… might dump those into greader
Chris Lott: Strange gaps in my Twitter history…. need to sleep anyway.
Chris Lott: @dnorman 5.5 weekly— running a weekly, I guess I’m taking my chances…

Chris Lott: Off to the wi-fi free airport for the jaunt to Anchorage then Kenai. Can’t find my short-range glasses. No dreams or haiku this morning…

Chris Lott: My mother lives alone with her dying eyes in an apartment too new to know by heart.
Chris Lott: Missed _Talk Like Bob Dylan Day_ (http://www.talklikebobdylan.com/) but you can still watch the videos. “No Direction, Period” is the best

Chris Lott: I don’t
Chris Lott: No sugar, flour etc for 2 months. Last night a big piece of choco cake. Now am suffering… worse than alcohol hangover. Back on the wagon.
