I am no great Nebuchadnezzar

3 random things is all I have time for:

1. My firm's dinner buffet (yes, we have a dinner buffet) is serving what they call a chopped salad. It contains: romaine, grilled chicken, bacon, tomatoes (so far so good), tortilla strips, and macaroni.

2. The word "Obama" is apparently now a talisman that can be used to ward off douchebags.

3. Today I am thinking about how being a nice person requires time, and it is much harder to be a nice person when time is the thing you lack most. (And yes, I value being nice.)
