A decade ago today…

…in front of a crowd on the lawn of a shabby mansion, amidst metal palm trees and with the delicate notes of La Cucaracha wafting in from someone’s car horn, a certain lady became Mrs. Nat’s TV. Congratulate her on her endurance in putting up with me for 10 years.

Mrs. Nat’s TV, on her lunchtime home improvement shopping

“I was looking into windows, to see what’s out there.”

Square thoughts

So Mrs. Nat’s TV and I are watching last week’s Flashforward, and there’s a character doing a police search for something who says “I’ve covered a five block radius, only three to go!”

And dadgummit, it was the Mrs. who noticed that. “Is that as crazy as it sounded?”

Yes. Yes it is.

For the math-imaired out there, if you’re searching an 8 block radius, and have so far searched a five block radius, you are not most of the way there. In fact, the amount of work that you have left is more than one-and-a-half times as much as the work you’ve already done.

a reason I love Mrs. Nat's TV

“With an infinite number of numbers out there, it’s hard to believe that not one of them is called ‘kazillion’.”
