Rose is wise beyond her years

(from the Sophocles was a kid once, too department)

Hi everyone,

We had a classic Rose moment this morning. I was in a super hurry, trying to get out the door to head to work. Almost simultaneously, I had a fan fail on my main server, lost my checkbook, and had to make the morning coffee.

Running around at full speed in the living room, I finally exclaimed: "I am never getting out of this house!!!"

I then heard a small voice from the couch: "There's a door - over there - in the middle."

I think Dana must have laughed for a full minute or so.

Ladies & Gentlemen, I give you Rose Pietromonaco, the wise voice of reason. Thank you, Rosie.

Golden Harmonicas!

(from the TV's Craig Ferguson department)

So - I'm an avid fan of The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson. It took a little while to find its footing, and it doesn't always work, but when it does, there's nothing like it on television.

One of the things he does is have guests play harmonica to exit their segment. The fun of the exit is that, normally, nobody knows anything about the harmonica, and hilarity ensues, etc.

But - every once in a while, somebody does know how to play. When this happens, Craig gifts them the "golden harmonica".

So far - we've had two:
Well - Friday night we got a third. A physics blogger, Jennifer Ouellette. Congrats to all!
