Preguntas del Jueves

It's Thursday, and we've been getting some good questions here in the offices of Rambling Adventures. We'll start with the "not-so-serious" ones first, and post later on the more, shall we say, "thought-provoking" ones.

Suzanne asked a techie question: how would i place a picture inside a paragraph with text wrapping around it like you just did with mr. incredible and the chock full o' nuts logo?
  • Inside the img tag, put align="right", including the quote marks and using "right" or "left" or "center" - and the text will wrap around the graphic by magic.

    Craig made a few inquiries this morning:

    1. So why did you change from a super-hero to a parking sign?
  • My PhotoWe saw that sign coming out of Chili's one night, and I loved the juxtaposition of "park here for carry out" and "we'll crush & melt your car". I feel the same about this blog, in a less violent way most of the time. Besides, the earlier self-portrait was ruining my secret identity.

    2. If your blog was a type of coffee, what kind would it be?
  • It's a caramel macchiato with whip cream - which is what I'm sipping right now at the new Atlanta Bread Co. on #378 across from the hospital.

    3. In light of question 2, what kinds of coffee would you invite to be guest bloggers? What kinds of coffee would you want on your blog roll?
  • Latte', dark roast, any of the african blends or chilled versions - only stipulation would be NO DECAF.

    4. What's the deal with "Starbucks" coffee. It seems that you talk a lot about that. Isn't JFG coffee just as good?
  • Here's the deal: the coffee just tastes better. Getting something in Starbucks, you buy into the ambience and all that, so the price is a bit jacked. But even at home - we buy the beans and grind them fresh for each pot. You can't beat that with normal grocery store coffee (the closest in texture for me has been Chock Full O' Nuts). The whole deal - grinding, brewing, the smell, the fixings - is what makes it worth it for me. We're not addicts, and I don't have to have my two cups every morning in order to not bite someone's head off. But I do like it done well and smelling right. That's huge.

    Okay, here's a potentially deep one for you: What about theology in Bob Dylan's songs? (He wrote Saved that Third Day sings on one of their praise CDs.)

    Is the window open for questions?
    When you are reading four books, what makes you choose the one to read for the moment?
    Now a question from a brazilian:
    I think baseball, football, basketball and hockey have all very strong leagues in US, how did you decide what league to follow and to choose a team to support?
