logo troubles

So when Josh was visiting a couple of weeks ago, we were talking about logos, and he said, "all of the simple ones are used."

I, being the contrary person I am, disagreed. "I just saw one the other day that was really simple and totally cool. And I've never seen anything exactly like it before."

I couldn't remember what the name was. Later, I remembered. (I remembered *before* the massive superbowl ad push, too, folks.)

But when I read Josh's account of his trip to Portland, I followed a link on his page to the carsharing company he uses in Seattle.

Damn. He was right about all of the good ones already being used. And he probably doesn't even realize it.

We're just back from our weekly ultimate frisbee game. We play every Thursday during lunch, rain or shine, mud or grass.

Today we got mud, but the sun was out. And it must be just about 50 degrees. It couldn't be more perfect.

I always run up to the field where we play. It's really only twelve or thirteen blocks, but that's a good run when it's actually two runs with a game of ultimate stuck right in the middle.

I'm also not a wonderful player, but every time I play, I get a little better. Which is all I could ask for.


Three days ago, Amy and I took the stray cats we've been feeding since April to a new home -- a house out where Amy works, near a dairy farm and not much else. Now we're just hoping they'll settle in, get comfortable with the family, and live to a ripe old age.

At least they're not living under a condemned house with a family of skunks any more. But we miss them.


Oh! Today is just so beautiful!

Happy new year! Amy and

Happy new year!

Amy and I spent the holidays in Kentucky, with the Varo family. It was very quiet, very cold (outside), and absolutely perfect. I feel very rested, and I'm ready to get back to work.

How about the rest of you? How was your holiday season? Anything extraordinary happen?

Tell me.
