Google ran the following heartwarming ad in the Super Bowl, telling the story of a romance in Paris through search queries.
The ad, of course, begs to be spoofed. See Hitler spoof meme for a preview of where this is headed.

Any on-going endeavor changes and adapts. When I originally hacked together a blog here in 2004, I was finishing up undergrad and working as a graphic designer. Flash forward to the present day and I’m finishing up law school and working for a children’s legal advocacy center, soon to graduate and take the bar and (God willing) enter the arena as a member of the Texas bar. It’s another time of transition and it’s time to shake things up a bit.
A confession of the obvious: I’ve been leading dual lives online – writing the blog the Blawgraphy as a law student and aspiring lawyer and the blog High on the Hog as Houstonian, recovering graphics geek and generally curious human being. I originally made the distinction so that I would not regale readers interested in web design or houston politics with tales of law school neuroses or diatribes against the rule against perpetuities. It occurred to me that this creates a bit of work for me and probably doesn’t matter for anyone else.
So I’m hitting Ctrl + Alt + Del on my other blogs, combining and rebooting into this one. The old blogs will still be available for now via the links at the header. RSS feeds will also be combined and aggregated and those who already subscribed should not experience any disruption of the regularly scheduled programming.
That is all.
