Post zombie apocalypse….

A drunkard’s walk through my most influential reads

Friday, January 3rd, 2014

I wrote something like this in December 2004, so this is an update for that unsearchable part of my blog. Some of it is stolen from the earlier post, but condensified and tucked up.   Ann Landers.  When I was growing up, I read her column every chance I got.  She asked people to be […]

Walking to church today

Sunday, December 1st, 2013

Hey, it’s less than 5 k. I have to stop off at Thrifty’s and get veggies for the soup lunch. Yesterday Paul and Mike (Nita’s so) and Jim and Jan walked in the woods behind my old building.  After we got ourselves good and wet in the rain and from examining honderds of decaying fungi, […]

Sample dialogue from Burn Notice

“Get me a sniper rifle and some C4!” “Ooo, I like where this is going.”   Apropos of nothing, the Battle Turkey of the Republic. A lovely picture of a turkey with erm accoutrements.

The funny things the characters say

Friday, September 27th, 2013

Jeff took me for breakfast… the leftovers will make a loverly brunch.  We also did a shop, including two for one standing rib roasts.  Nom. Teaching the homeless to code. I said I wouldn’t, but I did volunteer for something at church; I’m doing esthetics for Sally’s birthday (which is also a choir day so […]

Bonnacon / Bonasus

Saturday, September 8th, 2012

To my knowledge, my crest is an arm holding up a broken sword over a red and gold shield with the SINGULARLY USELESS motto of “Vigila et ora” meaning “Watch and pray”.  I would prefer a Bonnacon.  A farting. pyrotechnic bull would marry my clumsiness with my personal hygiene and general affabilty in one striking […]

Work continues on the instrument case.  I cleaned watch parts yesterday and handcrafted 5 steampunkins from modelling clay.  Who knows when it will be cool enough to actually bake them. We did a shop and I found out that the MacStation wants 200 DOLLARS to replace the battery in the MacBook.  I just about seized […]

Oh the Maid of Tarth she went a riding x 2 For her honor and king, for the minstrels to sing Branded traitor and fled into hiding Swearing fealty to Lady Catelyn x 2 Put her sword at her feet, promised vengeance so sweet Little reckoning what she’d be battling. Lady Catelyn was missing her […]

In a Lonely Place

Monday, December 12th, 2011

So….. Once upon a long time ago my favourite song was a song I couldn’t identify.  It was on a mix tape DJD made for me back when I was 50 pounds lighter and random menfolks still occasionally mentioned the fertility quotient of my ass rather than its powerful ability to block the sun.   I […]
