The grizzled man at the mike today played "Norwegian Wood", and I thought to myself how this was, in the Austin airport,a bit analogous to the way that the Nassau Bahamas airport has a Trinidad and Tobago steel drum band, charming, cool yet somewhat asynchronous, but isn't it good, Norwegian wood?
I wrote in myself as a candidate on my US Chess Federation Executive Board ballot, as I realized that I am the person who most embodies my own point of view. I expect to receive a grand total of one vote. I got my FICS blitz chess rating up to 1499. I read about hummngbirds in Arizona. I wonder if I could attract a cardinal with saffron seed.
