What I Learned At Work Today

My cubicle neighbor told me that Krispy Kreme is coming out with a drinkable doughnut. That’s right: doughnuts in liquid form. Great.

Then in the meeting I learned a new word. “Portlet”. A small cute pig is a piglet, a small wave is a wavelet and a small portal is – ta da! – a portlet. Also could be a small port (software, hardware or naval).

That’s it. I just thought I’d share this knowledgelet.

Box O’ Joy

I was always fascinated by the concept of a modern beer keg. Who invented it? Who could come up with such ingenious technology? Google is mum on the subject.

Wine sold in boxes is also an interesting approach to packaging beverages. But I’ve seen something even more bizarre in a local Dunkin Donuts. They sell brewed coffee in a box.

It’s called Box O’ Joe
The damn thing is huge. I think I’ll buy one as a decoration for my cubicle.
