I've had a on-again-off-again cold for the past week or so, and today, the symptoms were stuffed up nose and sinus pain. So I wandered down to the local pharmaceutical (drug) and pharmaceutical accessory (drug paraphernalia) shop and bought a neti pot. And used it. My nose is now the clearest it's been since, well, ever. It will probably get stuffed up again in a few hours, but hey, I'll just neti again.

Hire Me!

This week begins my self-[un]employment. Due to a strange convergence of giving notice at my old job, and several people emailing me about contract opportunities, I'm now sitting comfortably in my home getting paid to do cool shit all day long. My office's sound system kicks your's ass.

(Didn't know about double-possessive pronouns? Now you do.)

I'm only participating in this because the nearest book (89.8 cm) is significantly more interesting than the second nearest book, Quantum Chromodynamics at 96.5 cm.

And now I was in Las Vegas as the motor sports editor of this fine slick magazine that had sent me out here in the Great Red Shark for some reason that nobody claimed to understand.

JFleck, American vintage car enthusiasts and British vintage car enthusiasts in the US don't overlap much. The former group never could figure out what a trunnion or a gudgeon pin is, even after they found the tyre in the boot of the saloon. The latter group has always had difficulty with pronouncing carburetor correctly when it only has one 't', which may have stunted their ability to grasp that it has more than 2 moving parts.
