Seriously, how am I supposed to go back to eating banana bread after Plum cake and now Pluot cake. Well I suppose the answer would be that banana's grow year round.
So a friend on myspace posted this interested BBC documentary that aired back in March of 2007 titled The Great Global Warming Swindle. I'm half way through it and it is quite interesting. A lot of scientific dudes talking and handy graphs. They even take Al Gore's bit from the Inconvenient Truth and elaborate on that to make a very compelling and yet, not so surprising case. Global Warming is not caused by CO2. Global Warming is caused by the Sun! Specifics involve correlation between Cosmic activity and our Sun's sun spot activity. Cosmic rays apparently promote the formation of clouds which insulate us from heat. Solar rays/winds however blow those cosmic rays away and well it gets hotter. They also point out the ocean being the single largest source of CO2 on Earth and that the human contribution was miniscule in coomparison. Interesting and worth thinking about. The part I'm on right now is talking about Margret Thatcher fighting coal mine labor unions who were controlling industries and funding research to lean support dumping coal and going nuclear. The most ironic part so far has been these Global Cooling scare videos from the 70s. Anyways, check it out before they take it off Google.

The Cyborg 009 Figure set was finally back in stock and I couldn't be happier with them. They so rock! Look at how dynamic they look just on my desk!

And Range Murata figures!
And my desk 3.0

I went and got a haircut in Japan Town today. Here is some Pepperotini Spaghetti from On the Bridge.
I recently played through my boss' early 90s space opera game Star Control II. Twice. It's a cool game. Anyways, while taking picture number 2, I noticed how much my mouse looks like a Ur-Quan Dreadnought. And I also came across this awesome concept art site of one Niklas Jansson while googling for the Dreadnought images.
a sample of his Star Control art.
And then while talking to Jeremy about this cool site, the word Rebus came up. What is a rebus?
Check out this page for more. I love this one! Even though it's downright stupid if you ask me.

I originally wanted to get some friends over so they could "help" me eat my beef noodle soup. I think I'll have to freeze it soon. Instead I made salted fish friend rice. It came out great but I still have beef noodle soup. Won't someone help me eat it?

One of the Yelp reviews says "greasiest Mongolian Beef I have ever had." to which I say HA! That's what you get for ordering Mongolian Beef.

An early shuttle of items, computer, desk things...
Hanger 4 from the rear lot.
Our "cubicles" have evolved! I'm quite excited.
This will be my space. Stoked! I got a wall spot!
Our conference room entrance.
Wall by the conference room. There is a level of decking here. Monday will not only be a short day, but an exciting day. I have to figure out how I will decorate.
