Love your dog? Want a good cry?

My office mate, who has three dogs, sent me a link to this movie. I started to watch it, realized what it was about, and hastily stopped playback. After I screwed up the courage, I watched it with the sound off. I don’t think I would have made it through with the sound on. So here I am, recommending this movie even though I haven’t actually seen it. I may watch it later. Maybe.

Last minutes with ODEN

Funny thing is, it makes me want to ride my bike (which is something I don’t do… not a “bike guy”)… and get tattoos (which I should point out, is also something I don’t do). And hug my dog. Mason’s been with us for the better part of twelve years, and I’ve been preparing myself for the day he dies for several of those years now. Just thinking about it makes me well up. I’m going to be a wreck that day.

MMOD technology fascinates me

Yes, I’m watching some basketball these days. Actually, right this minute. I have a very little experience with streaming video (hey-o, Creighton!) but despite that I remain interested in streaming tech. At least enough to find this article on the technology behind CBS’ March Madness On Demand offerings pretty interesting. Maybe even fascinating. But I might also be a geek.

Introducing the Pringle

Over breakfast this morning, while looking through the newspaper ads, my seven-year-old son asked me what a Pringle was. I explained, and we discussed why they come in a cantube, instead of in a bag like normal chips, but there’s nothing like experiencing something for yourself.

So today, while I was at work, I bought one of those little cans of Pringles.

We shall see what he (and his little brother) think of this.
