Is your password “1”?

On a plane yesterday, I sat next to a nice woman with a Treo 700p. I had been talking to her on and off on the 5 hour flight.

When we landed, she fires up her VPN connection on her Treo, put in her username and a password of “1”.

We were comparing my aging Treo 650 to the 700p and she let me watch her do it.

“Uhh, your password isn’t really ‘1’ is it?”

“Yeah, I know, but it’s easy to type…”

There’s only one word for that : oi.

Naked in Heaven

My son and I were sitting waiting for our food this evening when he posed an excellent question:



“If we don’t get to take anything with us when we die, does that mean everyone in heaven is naked?”

Food for thought.

I’ve been hit by a deer

Last night, my wife calls on her way back from picking up our daughter. This is a the conversation as best I can remember:

Me: “Moshi Moshi”

Wife: “Uh, I’ve just been hit by a deer. What do I do?”

Me: “You hit a deer? Are you okay?”

Wife: “No, the deer hit me. It was in the median, and it ran right into the back part of the truck.”

Me: “What?”

Some more of this conversation followed along these same lines. Just when you thought it all, your wife doesn’t hit a deer, the deer hit her.

I think I need a nap now.
