lists and pies

Lists I am currently maintaining:

1. Items I look up on Wikipedia. (Latest: rhumb line.)
2. The number of emails in my inbox when I start work each day. (Currently it's at 665, down from 1193 a few weeks ago.)
3. Innocuous terms that annoy the heck outta me. (Witness: "Eco Bag".)

Speaking of which, Daytum is fantastic. There's something very compelling about tracking the mundane. I have yet to decide what exactly I'm going to track, but the power of the pie charts is there, beckoning. I can almost taste it.

sky light

Some days, after a long day's work, you walk outside and look up. Then your day starts again, for real this time.

I don't know what's going on up there, but I like it.
