Listening to a MBA haggle with an adjunct over a final exam grade. Makes me simultaneously happy I'm not teaching and, strangely, miss it!

Ever notice in the opening of Fraggle Rock Gobo hits his head violently when falling in the pool? Head Trauma. FR suddenly makes more sense.

I sometimes think I built the CDS Hub (Customized Usermin) for myself, and just let my co-workers use it out of the kindness of my heart!

Got my usual 90 minutes of "Super Productivity" in, now taking some time to tinker with my Dash 3G.

There is no acceptable reason I can think of that T-Mobile should be delaying the 6.5 ROMs for the Dash 3G and Touch Pro 2. Anyone have one?
9th-Jan-2010 02:32 pm - What I Sniped A Few Days Back!
(My Original Blog Post: http://ping.fm/qoCUF)
A few days ago I posted that I out-sniped a sniper on eBay to win an auction. Today that auction's contents came in the mail: 4 of the new-style AAA Safety Patrol badges. Who would want these? Well as a bit of a collector of odd pins and badges, I do!

These four are interesting in that they're a radical change from the previous AAA badges of the late 80's and prior. Originally AAA Safety Patrol used badges that actually looked like a police badge. I've got a set of the ones used from the AAA logo change until around the late 90's, including my original Safety Patrol Membership Card (I "bought" my way up to Captain rank!):

As I wrote in the comments on some of these, I'd feel really depressed to be a kid now who gets the Triangle badge as opposed to the Eagle style. After all, when your job is making sure first graders don't get run over by senile old ladies in cross walks, you might as well have something respectable upon your belt. If you want to see some of the other odd things I collect, check out my Collections page for a taste. And if you happen to have an old safety patrol badge (the style with an eagle but with large AAA instead of the circular logo), I'd love to take it off your hands!

Coming soon: A badge for 1960s Television Fans...
