Getting together at about 6:30/7 with Dave for dinner tonight and maybe a game or three of mage knight. We won’t go too late, though… he wants to go surfing up coast tomorrow morning.

I’m going to try to trade him something for his ironclad tonight… maybe a couple of my spare non-convertible dwarves…I’ve got a bunch of those… it’s a shame I don’t have more of the newer sculpts. I can’t believe that I’d ever see the day I’d want to trade good ol’ dwarves for nasty orcs.

Two Years ago today, my sweetheart and I confirmed to each other that we were in love. I still find myself catching my breath, thinking of her.

e e knows what it’s all about.

i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing, my darling)
i fear
no fate(for you are my fate, my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world, my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)

In celebration of really really good gas mileage


Uh, which way is the most accepted?

Channuka, Channukah, Chanuka, Chanukah, Chanuko, Hannuka, Hannukah, Hanuka, Hanukah, Hanukkah, Kanukkah, Khannuka, Khannukah, Khanuka, Khanukah, Khanukkah, and Xanuka.

Two spellings for each day. Yeesh. Why can’t we spell Non-English, Non-Roman character-based words more phonetically? Heck, In Hebrew it’s only five letters.

Have a good one, regardless. 🙂

Song stuck in my head all morning – I’ve been singing it to Newt incessantly.

Oh everything comes in its own special size
I guess it can be measured by where you put your eyes
It looks big when you’re close
And it looks smaller back a bit
That’s about the size of it.

Oh the big becomes the little
When you see it back a bit
The huge becomes the dinky
Which is just the opposite
Of the larger that gets smaller
It never seems to fit
That’s about the size of it.

That’s about the size
It’s where you put your eyes
That’s about the size of it.

This morning in pictures –

About 110k total, I don’t think a cut is needed. Feel free to let me know if someone wants one.

Here's what I have to fend off in the morning to get to the potty.
I was collecting accumulated deodorant cans (I seem to just toss them under the sink when empty, a slovenly habit I’m trying to kick. Newt was sitting on the commode so patiently watching, I had to take a picture. on the top of the tank there is potty-reading… currently You Only Live Twice, and a couple of sampler comic books picked up free at the ACC Expo.

Once I’d gotten the camera, I realized that it was probably a good morning to look for manatees. I knew the best place to go… I’d seen them there a few times before. The New River in Fort Lauderdale, right over the Haunted Tunnel.
overhead view... I was in prime manatee sighting area.

I got there, and it was very quiet, a good sign. The less traffic, the easier it’d be to spot them on the water.
side view of the river over the haunted tunnel.. I went looking for manatees this morning.

A tree that I’m fond of… I didn’t capture the feel from this angle, but it’s alternately spooky and friendly. There’s a definite vibe about it. They put planks up to protect it from the high winds, recently…those weren’t there last time.
Nifty tree... this picture doesn't do it justice... it looks much nicer at night.

Brisk morning…. the river patch I went to must’ve been too chilly for the manatees. I’ll return later to try again. I did find some little skinny fish swimming around. I was partial to the tag-along blue guy tooling about. No crabs out wandering, either.
Three Fish.. the blue guy was the most interesting of them
Close-up of the blue boy. He had more personality, wasn't as in synch as the other two. (Maybe he was the little brother with the loving couple? A third wheel?)

I hope you had a good morning too, Dear Journal!
