Ah, Sunday night: when idealistic motivation and the practical consequences of insufficient sleep are most at odds.

Seeing command module Columbia from the Apollo 11 mission in person was a surprisingly moving experience. It’s at the St. Louis Science Center until the beginning of September.

Just realized a good benchmark for a digital personal assistant (e.g. Siri) would be the ability to answer “will my garbage be picked up tomorrow?” (assuming it knows where I live). To its credit, Siri gave me the link to the holiday pickup schedule.

I’m happy “A Serious Man” is finally on Netflix even if it is just as inscrutable today as it was when I saw it in the theater nearly a decade ago.
