Ze, this picture is for you

On our trip we watched a ton of Ze Frank. We even sang a few of his songs. Some of which included the word “duckie.” Which is why I took a picture of this sign in Livingston, Montana. I stopped the van and said “I’m taking this one for Ze.”

Speaking of Ze, I’m not afraid, but I am terrorized. Terrorized that they’ll take away my electronic equipment on flights. Gosh, what will I need to do? Read a book? Next someone will figure out how to turn paper into some sort of weapon.

And people wonder why we drove to Montana.

Oh, Jeff Sandquist reminded me of how bad travel can get (and how being a Microsoft employee sure makes it nicer) with his posts from India.

Anyway, Ze, I wish I had your talent. While I try to acquire such (not blinking is HARD damn it!) you’ll just have to put up with my lame photo of a rubber ducky river rental sign.

Sorry.

    My feelings exactly. I’m not afraid of a terrorist attack when I fly – the miniscule danger barely enters my mind. I’m more annoyed with the lines for screening, taking off my shoes, and taking my laptop out of the bag and hoping it doesn’t get dropped or stolen. I’m sick of the hassle. I saw a huge difference just between flying to San Francisco for WWDC last week and flying home Saturday.

    As long as flying remains such a hassle, I’m not flying again. If I do go to MacWorld Expo in January, I’ll just take an extra week and drive cross country in my new Prius (which will benefit from such a long trip to fully break it in).

  3. Paper may be the most powerful weapon already. It’s usually words that motivate people to action, words that can change minds. In truth, a book can be the most powerful weapon in the world.

  5. The first time I read that sign, my mind skipped the word “river” and I was really confused at how someone could make a business renting rubber duckies. ha :0
