New experiences

In approximately 30 minutes I will be teaching a group of 15 3rd graders (8-10 year olds) the joys of frog dissection. This is a definite first for me. It's gonna get messy. Watch this space.

Isn't she beautiful

This is now, officially, the most expensive thing I've purchased to date.

The apple iMac G5. mm mmm MMMMMM that's tasty!

We met a couple of weeks ago in a busy computer mall in Taichung. She was dressed in white with the most beautiful wide blue eyes. She saw me checking her out across the floor I know she did.

It was a total 'Wayne's World' moment: All background noise faded away and the world surrounding my iMac took on soft focus.

'She will be mine, oh yes, she will be mine.'

And now, two weeks later, she has moved in and I know we'll be very happy together.

I still don't understand her, but isn't that always the way.
