My wife cannot orgasm from oral sex. I have been told that my technique is awesome, but nothing seems to be working. Please tell me there’s a way.
I passed your letter around the sorority house, and after the laughter died down, it occurred to me that perhaps not all of the women who had praised you in the past were lying. I consulted my trusty feminist bible (I Love You, Ronnie: The Letters of Ronald Reagan to Nancy Reagan) and was able to ascertain that your wife could have some issues including, but not limited to, body insecurity, mixed feelings about oral sex, pressure to orgasm, and the guilt that she feels while watching you soldier on through the unforgiving bush in a battle that never ends.

And here, I thought that was called .
I was reading Smithsonian’s 40th anniversary issue when I ran across this article on the future of reading.
Since I was on my iPad, I had to take this screenshot.
Get Zinio for the iPad, zoom in on , take a screenshot of it, and add it to Evernote.
“In my day, we clipping interesting articles with scissors and put it in a folder—a real physical thing made out of cardboard paper—and into something called a filing cabinet. That ‘desktop’ thing was just a metaphor for real physical stuff we used.”
“That’s crazy talk, grandpa!”
WordPress 3.0 (Thelonious) update just went out:
have done a great job. There is even a new default blog theme (which if you haven’t gathered I’ve been using for the last half year).
I even broke out a bottle of this to celebrate. Which reminds me, I recommend you update the way you drink the beer: straight, no chaser.
Carpe diem vita brevis.
“Terry Chay what did you do!!!!”

Before I clicked on the link, I thought I was being teased for taking down WordPress.com yesterday. (While I didn’t cause the one Jason Kincaid blogged about, I have taken down 11 million blogs before and I felt awful.)
But no, my friend has forgotten that I no longer work at Tagged.
And now that I no longer work there, let me explain what is going on. Simply put, The New York Attorney General intends to sue Tagged for harboring child pornographers and sexual predators.

Yesterday was the 15th birthday of PHP, which was nice.
But today is my birthday, which is better!
A long, long time ago in a crib far, far away… (a story from Auntie Gia):
Have a very wonderful day today. This is an indeed a special day. I remember when your mother and father brought you home from the hospital after your birth. I was in Pittsburgh helping take care of Ken. Your parents brought out Ken’s old cradle bed. It was small. Before they could put you in it, Two year old Ken stuffed himself in the cradle, lied down, sucked his thumb and would not move. Your mom enjoyed that moment.
Back from the hospital, with my brother
I guess they moved us to the bed (I am two weeks old in the photo).
Have a happy My Birthday, everyone!
I suppose musings like this are very common among Apple haters. Basically the complaint boils down to:
“325dpi? Bah! Even a 1986-era laser printer does 300dpi and my newspaper does at least 600dpi. Until you get there, the print is smudgy and causes eye-strain.”
The facts in the Apple’s advertising blurb are 100% correct. If you have a beef, don’t take the advertising head-on. The whole thing is essentially a misdirection .
What a crock of shit.

Overheard: “Only Apple can get away with calling something ‘magical’ and not have people call bullshit.”

Take photos of your family.
My mom, aunt, and uncle in Kyoto Japan 1941. My other aunt (who hadn’t been born yet) sent me this photo today.
Distance is no object—that’s (Cmd-Shift-3 on the Macintosh).
My brother, father, and sister-in-law in Providence 2010.
I’m going to try to use ScanCafe to digitize my parents old photos quickly. I am receiving it as during KQED Public Radio’s last pledge drive. The idea is they send you a box, you fill it with photos and slides, and then they give you DVDs with them digitized.
Update: Here they are (and some of the ones here).
Earlier this week, Neil Pasricha contacted Automattic about the success of his WordPress blog, 1000 Awesome Things. This is a blog, hosted for free on WordPress.com and it’s very inspiring…
(Read more about it on his blog. Apparently, there is a shout out in the book somewhere around page 400 or so.)
While reading Marie’s post about iPad cases, I came across ∆Temple Bags and noticed the entire site is built on WordPress (WordPress.org). It reminds me of this post four years ago.
People are doing some awesome stuff with blog software. Perhaps you will be inspired (and encouraged) too..
If there is one thing photographers have in common with women .
I have a lot of camera bags. I think about bags a lot. I find it’s difficult to find the right camera bag and when I add a laptop to the mix it becomes nearly impossible. But as difficult as it must be, imagine what it’s like to find a photographic bag for women?!
