Things I find amusing

1) When I put a post up at Ezra's, no matter how prominent the words "Posted by John" appear, someone always thinks it's Ezra writing. Sometimes many someones.

2) The number -- apparently limitless -- who think they might score a "gotcha" by asking whether I drive a Hybrid or something. For the record: Living in downtown Toronto, I own no car and feel no compunction to. I'm writing this by the light of a single CFL bulb. We've had freakishly mild weather, so the furnace isn't on. I think over the summer the A/C was on for all of 14 days, cumulative. I do eat more beef than is probably good for me, but Vicki and I have been making efforts to cut out the worst forms of meat. I love tofu, but when you live with Vicki, that's not optional.

(Some of these statements aren't my doing -- I live in the basement of a house, so heating/cooling decisions aren't up to me.)

I don't know why so many people assume that if I'm saying things like "people should drive less", I'm secretly just hoping there will be fewer people in the path of my Hummer.

Oh sure, preach at us from the decadent comfort of your lightbulb, when you could just bask in the healthy glow of your screen. Hypocrite.
