0 Miles at a Bearing of 0 Degrees

My flight home last night was slightly late leaving the gate but early arriving in San Jose and there was no wait for taxis, so I was at home before I was scheduled to land. No complaint there!

This morning, on the other hand, I remembered that I’d used up the last of the coffee on Tuesday just before leaving for the airport. This Does Not Bode Well.

By not-so-complete coincidence, my wife sent me this story today: Is Caffeine the “New Nicotine?”

Speaking of caffeine, I stopped at Starbucks on the way to work to get a cup since I had none at home. In the parking lot, I passed two guys, one of whom was saying “it’s great to be alive”. I have no idea of the context, but it was a cheerful thing to hear early in the morning.

Thanks to Garrett at array for the pointer to the Periodic Table of Comic Books. I suspect this may keep Jeffrey busy for a while!
