bridge at work

hmm… freaky “batman villian angle” on that one. Mostly uneventful day at work, discovered a few new ways of doing things. That clear sky popped out about 10 minutes before I decided to head into work… Looks like Maryland is getting the rain we had earlier…showers through wednesday.

Looks like Danny’s getting spring break just in time…I suspect his burnout is hitting a new high. well, he’s got until thursday, then a week and a half oof, then another month and a half to summer vacation. he needs to get out of the high school arena, and into college, and quick. I’ll be going out to breakfast with him Thursday, before he goes on the road with his wife… I hope he gets to decompress, and doesn’t get wound tighter by being trapped in the car for a week (I suspect the latter, sadly).

from A geek, a cat, and way too much time I enjoy the profile shots for image recognition.

found via can asians think? in salon.

it’s a study of two mental universes. I feel the title is a bit inflammatory, but it fits that person’s beliefs…an interesting interview.

also digging the new llamas in ‘s journal. so sweet!

That’s my baby is the one with the lab & the x-rays…it’s very neat to see 8 puppies in skeletal form in the mom. The ultrasound is nifty, to, but there’s less sharpness. They give up the dog for 6-7 weeks while the babies are born and weaned…I don’t know how I’d feel if Newtie had to spend two months away from home. I’d miss him so much! I sort of think the term “brood bitch” is funny, in a juvenile way. Watching the babies being born is fascinating…I’m sure most women are happy that a brood of 8 or so isn’t the norm for them…or would it be easier, because the kids would be smaller, and more easily passed through the birth canal? Listening to the baby pups squeal is melting my heart. aww…

It’s spring break in South Florida. there are parts that you don’t want to visit now, until Easter passes…unless you want to be in a “Girls gone wild” video, or worse, a “Drunken Dumb Fratboy gets arrested” video. Great of the kids to bring businesses money, but I’ll be happy to see them go, too. Surprisingly, the kids are better tippers than the fully-grown Quebec visitors, on the whole. (They look better in revealing bathing suits, too.) Harder to get cabs this month, unless you’re on the beach. Evening rides home would be nearly impossible from the zone I’m in, if I didn’t know a few drivers personally. (Yellow cab totally stinks down here… city cab or central are superior in every way. much smaller fleets, but they’re more timely.)

I don’t remember last night’s dreams… I woke up very groggy, and showered any remnants of the evening down the drain.

I did pretty well on the oscar pool…I made into the top ten, anyhow. (top 6, if you go purely by score) did poorly…came in 30th. (of 50 players!) what happened to his mighty guessing skills? And poor scored even lower! (I won’t mock her, though, because she wasn’t bragging all over the place beforehand.) For the record, I didn’t watch the show… sort of a yawny thing to me. got first place! you go girl!
