Can you spell irony?

I just caught up on some of my blog reading and came across an article that just makes me wonder.. do people understand irony any more? Via BoingBoing, a link here to a group of former students are apparently suing Pink Floyd and/or the current copyright holders for unpaid royalties… Read More

Holiday Fun

I just got back from a relaxing week in Sydney with the folks for the festive season. I’ve gained a bit of weight by the most enjoyable method I know, which this photo helps to illustrate: Mmm. Yummy. I didn’t really do a great deal while I was there, though… Read More
