Taking the Train to Work

I am travelling by train today. It’s very European.

Flowers for Trinitron Reprise

I am addicted to TV again. I am always reminded of the Tom the Dancing Bug comic strip called Flowers for Trinitron.

That really sums it up for me. When I’m TV free I do things like read the great books of the Western canon, or get a professional certification, or paint. But TV is just so damn addictive and mind/soul sapping! Especially when Tivo makes delivery of the drug so efficient. Tivo is like the crack version of TV. Ugh, I hate myself. Seriously, I am experiencing brain atrophy while watching programs like the new 90210 and House. Is there a 12-step program for TV addiction?

I got the (English) Beat

I went to the English Beat concert at the Del Mar racetrack last night with some pals. It was all free (I didn’t even have to pay for parking) and it was a blast.

Email (Mis?) Management

You can’t swing a dead cat without hitting one of my email accounts. I have 9 different major email accounts. Notice I didn’t write email addresses… that’s because I’m not counting total aliases. I’m just giving you the total number for what comes after the @ symbol in an email address (example: alias@emailaccount.com)

So what’s up with all this noise? Well, I have a lot of net identities. There are all of my personal domains(5), job-related accounts(2), a gmail acct, and a yahoo acct.

Everything was fairly well managed for a while. I had most of everything funnelling into the gmail acct, then had the work email… so effectively I had 2 major email programs to manage. But, in the past couple of weeks, that has temporarily jumped to 4.

It’s really too much. I don’t know which email I am sending from or should be receiving into anymore. Frankly, I am getting a little scatterbrained about the whole thing. Good thing it is temporary.
