BLT Votive Candles

Votive candles that smell like a bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich.

I've invented Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato votive candles. Maybe I'm crazy, but here's how my mind works: I love the smell of bacon cooking. I fantasize about having bacon grilling on the stove day and night. In my philosophic musings I asked myself what is better than a BLT? As much as I try, I can't eat a BLT at every meal and I can't grill bacon 24 hours a day.

Then he gets a bit philosophical, and concludes:

Bacon = Freedom
Lettuce = Love
Tomato = Passion

Today, we became official card-carrying Arizona residents. Well, at least we got our drivers licenses and registered the cars. The Arizona Motor Vehicle Department was fast and efficient. We were out of there in less than an hour.

MVD Clerk: So you're from California. Is there anyone left there?

Me: Nope. We were the last ones out, so we turned off the lights.

Randy, Just Say No

From ESPN: Just say no... to pinstripes.

So Randy Johnson wants to be a Yankee ...

He says NO to the Dodgers, NO to the Angels, NO to anyone but the Bombers.

That's weak. That's just a whorish glory grab. Why not go to work for Microsoft while you're at it? Why not jump in with Goliath and teach little David a lesson? Why not join the armada for a storm of the Falklands?

Work hard, and perhaps you can get your own star.

Ten Words

According to MSN Encarta, there are 10 Words You Simply Must Know.

British novelist Evelyn Waugh once said, "One forgets words as one forgets names. One's vocabulary needs constant fertilisation or it will die." Editors at MSN Encarta picked some of their favorite words to nourish your vocabulary. Some of them you may even use.

I don't know any of these words. I think the only one worth learning is digerati.
