Hola – do any of you watch The Big Bang Theory?

It’s on CBS on Monday night.  WAY funny.  My hero Wil Wheaton is going to be on it again on April 12.  This was a shot from the bowling scene with Sheldon and Wil.

Wil said they were trying not to laugh at something someone just said to them, but he couldn’t repeat.  Luckily, someone in his comments piped up with,

“As to what was said, [it was] something like “okay guys, look like you really have some confidence in your balls.”


I love that show.

Happy Birthday, Al

It’s Pi day! And Albert Einstein’s birthday.


All of us who are concerned for peace and triumph of reason and justice must be keenly aware how small an influence reason and honest good will exert upon events in the political field.

As far as I’m concerned, I prefer silent vice to ostentatious virtue.

If a cluttered desk is a sign of a cluttered mind, then what are we to think of an empty desk?

Only one who devotes himself to a cause with his whole strength and soul can be a true master. For this reason mastery demands all of a person.

The American lives even more for his goals, for the future, than the European. Life for him is always becoming, never being.

The Lord God is subtle, but malicious He is not.

Why is it that nobody understands me and everybody likes me?
All from Albert Einstein, 1879 – 1955

Quotes from Theodor Seuss Geisel a.k.a Dr. Seuss.  I like the last one. 🙂  Buried  under my thick layers of cynicism there still lurks a bit of the romantic. 

From there to here and here to there,
funny things are everywhere.

Adults are obsolete children, and the hell with them.

Step with care and great tact
And remember that Life’s a Great Balancing Act
Just never forget to be dexterous and deft
And never mix up your right foot with your left.

You [an aspiring writer] can get help from teachers, but you are going to have to learn a lot by yourself, sitting alone in a room.

I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind.
Some come from ahead and some come from behind.
  But I’ve bought a big bat.
  I’m all ready you see.
Now my troubles are going to have troubles with me!

You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.
     All from Theodor Seuss Geisel, 1904 – 1991
