Lets get it started

July 25, 2011

Remmber when you played kickball and asked the person pitching to give you baby bounces so you could kick it as hard as you wanted without worrying where the ball would go? I feel like life has been giving me baby bounces and all I have to do is keep my eye on the ball and the rest is going to take care of itself.

What a long day. MS Outlook is the bane of my existence. Just when I think I have my outgoing mail situation sorted out, I’m in a different hotel or a different airport and it starts acting up again. I’ll probably have to work at least a half day Saturday, but i’m excited about the rest of the weekend.

My seventh-grade English teacher exhorted us to study vocabulary with the following: “We think in words. The more words you know, the more thoughts you can have.” This compound notion that language allows you to have ideas otherwise un-haveable, and that by extension people who own different words live in different conceptual worlds — called “Whorfianism” after its academic evangelist, Benjamin Lee Whorf — is so pervasive in modern thought as to be unremarkable.

Science is less supportive of the idea that a broader vocabulary will increase your learning capacity, but it’s an interesting idea just the same.


Hello Costa Mesa

July 9, 2011

We’re moving to Costa Mesa manana. I met with our new landlords today and they seem like very reasonable people. Hopefully they stay that way so we can live in the house for a couple years.The house is less than a mile from the 405 and closer to bjj and the beach so i’m happy with the neighborhood. We’ll have a house warming in late July or August and you’re invited. Hopefully the cops won’t harass us this time…

I know i’m not a real surfer yet because when I check surfline I hope for waist high waves and hot water temps.

If you know me you’re not surprised. In the war between vampires and werewolves I support Team Badaby.

Levitation ftw

Saw so many good looking women in dresses over da weekend. All taken of course, but I couldn’t help but feel unbridled optimism in the company of good looking women.
