Whale fluke

This is moral support! Really!

A couple of people I know are about to do their first Polar Plunge. Cort and Fatboy (KUFO's afternoon DJs) are leading their team, Team Shrinkage, into the Columbia River sometime this morning. I am not among their team.

I hope they enjoy getting warm again. Meanwhile, I hope they brave Northwest water well: even when it's warm, it's cold. It's even cold in August. I know.

B.D.S. (Butter Delivery System)

Why not? Instead of putting butter on my rice I put butter in the pot as the rice was boiling. I put that butter to work! It (sorta kinda) infused the rice with butter!

Another way to use butter. Why not? Plus I like the term in the subject line. Use it as you see fit for a nominal fee.

Roger Ebert Remembers Gene Siskel

Linked by Shawn Levy: Ten years after Gene Siskel's death, Roger Ebert reminisces about their bond:
Gene Siskel and I were like tuning forks. Strike one, and the other would pick up the same frequency. When we were in a group together, we were always intensely aware of one another. Sometimes this took the form of camaraderie, sometimes shared opinions, sometimes hostility. But we were aware. If something happened that we both thought was funny but weren't supposed to, God help us if one caught the other's eye. We almost always thought the same things were funny. That may be the best sign of intellectual communion.
Often funny, often sad, all worth reading.
