Tell me what you think

The Johari Window was invented by Joseph Luft and Harrington Ingham in the 1950s as a model for mapping personality awareness. By describing yourself from a fixed list of adjectives, then asking your friends and colleagues to describe you from the same list, a grid of overlap and difference can be built up.

Lucky Day

This morning brought an unexpected gift. I was leaving the house and noticed something that looked like a credit card on the ground just outside of my apartment door. I picked it up and what was it, an annual bus pass !! I feel really badly for the person that just bought and lost it particularly since it cost them 594.00. It is for unlimited rides from Feb 06 to Jan 07. I made an agreement with the Universe that if someone should post a missing flyer in the apartment that I’ll return the bus pass to them. Either way I’m feeling really lucky this morning.

Malcolm X: It was 41 years ago today…

On February 21, 1965, Malcolm X was gunned down in Harlem. After being shot several times inside the Audubon Ballroom, he was pronounced dead on arrival at Vanderbilt Clinic, Columbia Presbyterian Hospital.

Malcolm sez: "If violence is wrong in America, violence is wrong abroad. If it is wrong to be violent defending black women and black children and black babies and black men, then it is wrong for America to draft us, and make us violent abroad in defense of her. And if it is right for America to draft us, and teach us how to be violent in defense of her, then it is right for you and me to do whatever is necessary to defend our own people right here in this country."

(from a November 1963 speech in New York City)

Then, there’s this 1964 speech.

When Ann Coulter Commits Voter Fraud, She Commits Voter Fraud, Dammit

Ann_coulter_time_magazine.jpgHas it really been only five years since America’s Sweetheart Ann
Coulter called the voters of Palm Beach County “stupid” and “feeble-minded”? And
now, poor dear, she can’t even remember which precinct
she’s registered to vote in

A Palm Beach poll worker says he tried to help
GOP-loving pundit Ann Coulter vote in the right precinct last week.
But, Jim Whited says, Coulter dashed out of the polling place when he told her
she needed to file a change of address. “I even ran out after her,” he says.
“But she was fast.”

It is nice to see that even as Ann descends further and further into self-parody, she’s still
kept in fighting shape. We’d like to see some pussy liberal outrun a Palm Beach
poll worker.

I weighed myself this morning – I’m 260 pounds.  I’m eating less and more healthy food.  I walk at least 3 miles a day and drink lots of water.  I need to do something but what.  I feel fat and a bit taken aback.  Somehow I’ve gained 20 pounds in the last 2 months.  I weighed 246 in December just before Xmas. 

New iPod – 3.5-inch Touchscreen?

Very, very, very important news from ThinkSecret. The next apple amazing-ness will be an iPod with a 3.5-inch touchscreen with a virtual clickwheel.

Sources who have seen the device report that it features a digital click wheel, one that overlays the touch-sensitive display and appears when a finger touches it and disappears when the finger is removed.

“Appears when a finger touches it…” Oh, Steve. You care! Release date should be March or April but could drag out into the summer. No word on specs. However, this does mean you may want to reconsider upgrading this Spring.
