I got Jeff to come look at the ‘blue moon’ (2nd of two full moons in a month) this morning – it shone from a halo of cloud, perched on a sheet of noctilucent cloud. Most beautiful, and of course I don’t have a sufficiently good camera to capture it. The moon set behind the [...]

I can’t talk about it publicly but Jeff knows so I’m not alone. On the other hand, Repulsigans don’t understand sign placement.
Yesterday I bought wedding gifts, tidied, returned and picked up library books, and today I’ll do churchy things and work on the joint project Jeff and I have. Tomorrow I will get together with Katie. Keith charmed me yesterday by saying he will attend a meetup for socially awkward people. I have to say that [...]
I am so glad to have done as much work as we did on our current project today, and we got a shop in as well. It’s also reaaaaallly nice to be at home in me own bed.
Katie and I had an awesome time (despite sleep being a bit of a problem). I’m not sure exactly what to put here, but the communication workshop we attended gave us both a lot to think about, and gosh, everybody was so NICE. We could just relax and be ourselves and marvel at the rainbow [...]
Steve Brust wrote the lyrics and I wrote the choon a couple of days ago. Here’s the link. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Y_gNvDU2Hs&
Everybody take care and try not to break the internet while I’m gone.
So I completely blew the interview yesterday – fell apart during the test. I solaced myself with beer and lobster afterwards, so thoroughly downcast was I, and my Lumosity score fell like a rock this morning subsequent to me having two beers, so, note to self – alcohol does make you demonstrably dumber, please avoid [...]
The folks where I interviewed very kindly called back and I have a second chance to demonstrate my willingness to work. I have a stye in my left eye that hopefully won’t look too hideous. Margot is noisily cleaning herself. I broke the venetian blinds in my room the other day and have been getting [...]
Social media has turned modern friendship into a pixellated bar that serves kittens, soundbites and RPGs. – A Sloman. Tony Scott, noted director and producer and brother of Ridley, committed suicide by jumping off a bridge. He left a note. He was 68. Depression’s a hell of an illness, and my condolences to his family, [...]
February 7 2010, what was I doing? Well, apparently, according to my computer I completed the lyrics for and the accompaniment for a song of my composition (circa 2008) called “Mythical”. I completely lost any recollection of the song until I was reviewing what I had recorded in Garageband many many months later and then [...]
Yesterday I spent 5 hours at the New West Pride Day celebrations staffing a table for Beacon, and then in the evening I went to the Heather Dale concert. I didn’t want to do any of it but now I’m glad I did.
I have to go down to the church and pick up the banner and literature for New West Pride. It’s going to be so Nixonianly hot today I might as well pre melt myself and pour myself in Margot’s water dish. Then I get to come home, lie down in front of the ac for [...]
Which is encouraging. Seth Green in a pornstache.
1st is for a high def surveillance camera company. A hell noes! 2nd is in Richmond. A hell noes squared. Druther die! Must find other jobs to apply for. Reminded somebody they’d be my reference.
