Reflections from the semi-moist

CNN has a weird news section now. Pretty, because they have higher production values than Reuter’s “Oddly Enough” which is my other fun wacky news source.

Playing with the eviltron Rubik’s cube,while my hair dries from the shower. I really like the astronauts. I still have a tiny keychain cube around here somewhere, too. Rubik’s too calm and placid? Go run over pedestrians, then. Especially with the groovy soundtrack it has. My best score there to date is 105 little dead German senior citizens.

Also see bookworm… scrabble meets bejeweled. if it becomes available for the palm, I’m in trouble.

Randomly placed Pirate ghost with space-laser sword  - ARrr! He Has nothing to do with any of the text in this entry. The moon was beautiful last night, as was the quiet chirping of crickets in accompaniment. my thoughts were pleasant as I drifted off to sleep, thinking of her nestled close… a peaceful, blissful time to be sure. Awake and in the daylight now, some overflow remains…I’m going to keep and hold that seed of calm, and mentally try to get it to bloom over me today. Things at work have been a little pesky lately, and I carry thoughts of her as a touchstone to keep me happy and tranquil. I want to give her cow tales, hold her in my arms, and tell her how much I love her.

Work has begun on my second variation of my beloved in miniature… still in the planning stages. I wonder if cellophane will work as the more transparent aspects of the new costume? This one may take a while to develop properly.

Had a moment of stupidity yesterday, but I think that I’ve successfully squelched it. it hasn’t reared it’s ugly head today, much to my relief

There’s some sort of flu-bug going around work, making folks icky-sicky here and there. It’s tagged Island Boy, Chupa, Kev and I’m not sure who else. My eyes were burning a little yesterday, but that seems to have faded. I’ll be happy if it bypasses the rest of the gang… a few people going on vacation in the next week or two… (Myself included) they don’t need boogie-snots to mess it up.

Simple Home-Made remedy That is Free from Opiates and Harmful Drugs.
An effective remedy that will usually break up a cold in twenty-four hours, is easily made by mixing together in a large bottle two ounces of Glycerine, a half-ounce of Virgin Oil of Pine compound pure and eight ounces of pure Whisky.

Sappho and Riker are taking off for a week-ish on Friday Going to spend Halloween at the campground on the peace river. I bet that’ll be a hoot.

My goal today is to see at least three people smiling.

People only seem to ever remember Nietzsche’s “That which does not kill me” quote. Here’s one of his which I like a lot more:

“I would believe in a god who could dance. And when I saw my devil I found him serious, thorough, profound, and solemn: it was the spirit of gravity – through him all things fall. Not by wrath does one kill but by laughter. Come; let us kill the spirit of gravity! I have learned to walk: ever since, I let myself run. I have learned to fly: ever since, I do not want to be pushed before moving along. Now I am light, now I fly, now I see myself beneath myself, now a god dances through me.”
