this week i

updated our analysis of the supplemental poverty measure for seniors, with op-ed.

would start a laundry detergent brand just to name it after lady macbeth.  alternatively, had i been born with nothing in the developing world, i'd have worked my way out of poverty by throwing logs in front of asshole motorcyclists and stealing their bikes.  pole polepole pole services ltd.

asked a good question, such is life..

..funny that they disallowed this.

withdraw a maximum of 400,000 shillings from most atms.  when i arrived, it was $212.  now $180.

share my garden with a danish architect who built viva towers (background), refers to the us embassy as moonbase alpha.  here comes china.

went to catholic mass, as george carlin says, to compare clothing.  i think i was tallest, not sure.  almost a quarter south asian, including the priest.  kiswahili and english services rotate hourly through the morning.  dreaded the handshakes when i was a kid but now the best part, the only break in ceremony.  wonder if a beware of god sign would deter burglars.

kill malarial mosquitos with this in mind.

listened to maybelline a bunch.  bill watterson and ella the only flawless artists that i know.

consume young and old grapes, but not the working aged aka raisins.

see no pattern.

practiced carving.

signed up to view a hatching.  turtles all the way down..

"here's what i think of your code of conduct"

..on my birthday, i think i shat my pants and rudely asked for milk.


this week i

published code for two international assessments on math and literature.

always thought the french word ami sounded more intimate than its usage.  haiti agrees.

carved my first decent anything.

drove west to morogoro with michael, views from the road.  we talked through the manifestations, symptoms of scarcity.

turned at the green mosque down the mango alley.

crossed the bridge onto the farm.

worked straight through the weekend.  about $100 per day for three meals and an oversized cottage.

assume closed-source software more likely to hide simplistic methods rather than some ingenious proprietary algorithm.  unwillingness to share betrays embarrassment, not asset protection.  for me, would carpal tunnel from too much programming be rthritis?

woke up both mornings to a hornbill attack.

flew a quadcopter over the field of prairie dog-looking things.

hiked up one of the hills.  we did not set any records.  climate especially, an inviting corner of the globe.
