'Been away from the blog for a while, so here are some random bits.
Facebook: I finally joined Facebook. So now I get to say, "I am so adding you to my friends".
Facebook Fun: And to celebrate, here is Facebook, the Electric Friendship Generator, an educational film about Facebook etiquette.
Scary Food: My boys are very picky eaters so I'm always open to new foods they might like. This brand new recipe might be the answer: Here on BoingBoing, and here, here and here on Livejournal. Mmmm, good. I'm definitely going to make some for the guys.
Electronic Music: It's the Banjo Synth! Make Magazine Online: The Banjo Synthesizer, with more details at Electronic Peasant: Banjo Pitch to Voltage Converter.
The Onion: One of the funniest things I've seen recently is this report: Prague's Franz Kafka International Airport ranks last on customer satisfaction survey. God bless The Onion.
Local Flavor: Here's a New York Times article about Silicon Valley called Searching for Silicon Valley which is remarkable in several ways. First off, as far as I know it's accurate (ba-da bing!). It's a nice overview of Silicon Valley. And for restaurants, it mentions the upscale Evvia in P'Alto in the same sentence as the hole-in-the-wall La Costeñia, which is a tiny taqueria in a back room of a wreck of a mostly empty Mexican grocery in Mountain view. The ceiling tiles maybe be peeling off (yick), but they do make unbelievably tasty burritos.
