More Norm Wisdom....

Borrowed from The Norm:



The Norm's Daily Journal: Packaging has become so important these days. We all do it. In fact, if you don't have the proper packaging -- if you don't know how to present yourself to someone else as useful and focused -- people think you're weird. No one wants you to be too many things. They'll just set you back on the shelf and walk away.

It's kind of scary, but I think that might be true (at least among the non-geek masses). It's funny because I always thought that this:

"A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, con a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects". - R.A Heinlein: Notebooks of Lazarus Long

made a lot more sense. Then again, Heinlein does tend to appeal to the geek non-masses so it shouldn't be a huge surprise. Just some random stuff that got my attention this morning...

    Pixel and I missed having a little black cat around so I went to the pound Saturday afternoon and I found this little guy in need of a new home:…

  • RIP Morticia a/k/a Ninja Cat :-(

    My little black cat died tonight. It was a sudden and surprising end to a great little cat. I'm doing ok, but I will definitely miss that…

  • Still alive!

    Yes, it's true, I am still alive. Nothing particularly earth shattering has been going on lately, I've just been busy with work and then coming home…
