trying to remember why I emailed these to myself [Sun, 07 Dec 2014 15:27:22 +0000]
Sometimes, while at the bar or hanging out with folks I email things to myself - the name of the bartender, a movie or book someone recommended, etc. Often, I'd come across something at work and email a link from my work email to my personal email account. Over time, I've forgotten about many of these things. But since I need to clean up my email box, I'm just going to post them here so that they can languish in another medium.
