The Worlds of Atoms and Bits Collide

My 10 free Moo MiniCards arrived a few days ago (I got a coupon code when I renewed my Flickr pro account last month) -- here they are perched on my laptop:

Since the Flickr set from which some of the pics are drawn is showing on-screen, it's got that whole juxtaposition-of-virtual-and-physical-worlds thing going on.

They're neat, though I'm not sure they're 20-cents per card neat. If I bought a set, I probably would have to charge people a quarter each before I could part with them.

Other things I've done today (thus far):

* Signed up for eDemocracy Camp (March 1 & 2).

* Submitted my Currency Conversion Fee antitrust litigation settlement claim -- it's good for 25 bucks because I used my credit card in Mexico and China a few years ago.

* Made a meatloaf. My usual recipe -- ground turkey, an egg, dash of olive oil, Sriracha sauce, random shakings from my spice rack, and other things I have lying around (in this case, chopped jalapenos, tortilla chip crumbs, dash of grits).

* Figured out that the reason why the rice from my rice cooker has been so dry these past few months was because I wasn't putting in enough water. Duh.

* Bothered a bunch of people via LinkedIn connection requests.

* Found my iPod Nano was completely drained.

More thrilling breaking news as it happens.

You should add a little grated Parmesan or pecorino to your meatloaf. Unfortunately, I'm not sure how that will play with the Sriracha (which I bet is freakin' awesome. Still, I tend to use cheese in odd places.

Aside from that, I may be in your area in April, so you know I'm going to try and drag you out and get you plastered, don't you?

I'm not sure yet though. I still have to deal with a lot of snow... It's maddening.

Let's see, what's the word I'm looking for? Oh yeah: Intense fear.
