|Thoughts for the Day||Wednesday, 2007 November 28 - 10:21 pm|
|Three random, unrelated thoughts that I had today.|
THOUGHT #1: I realized today that I have a heretofore unappreciated superpower: I can determine exactly how long refrigerated leftovers need to be microwaved to reheat them properly, to within 5 second accuracy. Half of yesterday's steak along with some vegetables? Exactly 1 minute 15 seconds. (My nemesis: foods that have been partially or completely frozen. They throw off the formula.)
THOUGHT #2: Hey web browsers: What part of "block pop-up windows" don't you understand? How is it that some sites STILL manage to pop up ad windows?
THOUGHT #3: Where did the expression "feeling your oats" come from? Does it have anything to do with testicles, or is it actually referring to the grain? (Note: I had this thought while standing at the urinal. Not that you needed to know that.)

1. Feel frisky or animated, as in School was out, and they were feeling their oats. This usage alludes to the behavior of a horse after having been fed. [Early 1800s]
2. Display self-importance, as in He was feeling his oats, bossing everyone around. [Mid-1800s]
Right now I'm feeling my Clif bar, which is the first thing I've eaten since ~9 last night.
Ken -- that's a great superpower. And great to realize you have. Last night someone was telling me about Vonnegut's wampeters and karasses. I wonder if you'll meet your fellow micromagicians in heaven?
Oh and I hate ZEDO.
