They had an Easter party at Andrea’s day care yesterday, and one of the parents brought in Easter baskets for all the children. The baskets had candy, plastic eggs, and the other usual Easter type stuff. They also had a couple of cute little chicken-in-egg stickers, which Andrea decided to share with me. Sharing is good.
One of the things I’ve had on my mind lately is how to explain to her where food comes from—that the delicious steak is actually a piece of the carcass of a cow, that pork chops come from piglet, and all of that.
Turns out my worries may have been groundless. As we were talking, she pointed to the stickers on my hand and cheerfully exclaimed, “Chicken nuggets!”
She’s a good little omnivore.

All Nic wants for WWDC is sync that actually works
Another book roundup, including some stellar athletes and soldiers, what might be the most jaded, soul-weary protagonist ever, and some grimdark fantasy.
The Internet is getting creepy, and Nic is breaking out his tinfoil hat after newspaper paywalls push him over the edge.
Nic is tired of tech sites obsessing over Apple’s financials and business strategy. So very tired.
Nic reads a book about the processed food industry and is incensed.
Computers are complicated. This brings out the irrational in people.
Nic proposes the loan word Rechthaberei be incorporated into American English.
The Core Dump is back! Books were read during the hiatus. Includes The Coldest Winter, Oh, Myyy!, Tough Sh*t, The Revolution Was Televised, The Rook, Mr. Penumbra’s 24 Hour Bookstore, Gun Machine, Fortress Frontier, Standing in Another Man’s Grave, and The Memory of Light.
This site will return in February.
From a true patriot to a world-weary detective, a dead god, and a civilization about to sublime from the galaxy, this book roundup spans the gamut. Includes Where Men Win Glory, Wild, Inside the Box, The Black Box, Three Parts Dead, Red Country, and The Hydrogen Sonata.
