Book of Mormon

We saw Book of Mormon at the Boston Opera House tonight, courtesy of my company, for my 10-year anniversary gift. Scary to think I’ve been at my “new” job for 10 years.

I never knew you cared

The title of the episode is “Sweet Dough”. Seeing it cut off like this was a little startling.

Sputnik Sprouts

OK, not really, just kohlrabi.

Omelet pan

I have fond memories of my dad making fluffy souffle-style omelettes in this pan. It’s hinged in the middle so that you can start it opened on the stove (as shown), then close it up and finish in the oven. Sadly, eggs can upset my stomach these days so I don’t get to use it very often, but we’re due for a lazy rainy weekend so today I figured I would risk it.

I did it to myself

(singing)

Who put the bob in the bob-kebab-ke-bob?

And even better, I did manage to get them grilled ahead of the storm!

Flat

I went to ride my bike to the train this morning, only to discover a 100% flat front tire. With no time to fix it, I had to drive to the train. Boo.

When I went to fix it this evening, I discovered that the tube has a patch in it. I have no memory of having ever actually patched a tube, so it is possible this tube dates to when I was first getting back into cycling, in the 2003 timeframe. So I guess this tube doesn’t owe me anything.

Debugging

I found a pretty big bug at work today.

We took it outside and released it.

Harbor View

My office’s summer outing was a visit to the ICA today. Clearly I am not an Art Person, because this view of Boston harbor was the highlight of the visit for me.

Hello sharpness, my old friend

Today I recycled a couple of old computers at my town’s e-waste recycling center. First I opened them up, though, to remove & destroy the hard drives. It’s been long enough since I opened one of them — an old Dell — that I had forgotten how much sharp sheet metal is inside it: as it bit me today for the last time, I suddenly remembered all the other times when this particular computer case had drawn blood.

(I also discovered today that it’s pretty difficult to take a picture of the outside of one’s left hand).

Instruction Bus

In microprocessors, an Instruction Bus can lead to or from the Instruction Cache. I’m not sure what one is doing in Boston.
