I frittered today away…. I enjoyed a nice break.. rode the bike with the bro before sundown, and stayed in much of the rest of the day. I’m going to see if I can get my laundry all done, and have my happy butt back at the apartment before noon. (maybe even earlier, depending on when I get up).

Newt was remarkably affectionate…I think he really enjoys it when I stick around and give him lots of affection. I got him to purr-drool… no mean feat.

Anyone want a Rocking Horse Potty for Christmas?

Great minigolf game.

I have made a note to myself the tomorrow is laundry day (morning) and I must take care of the rest of any prezzies that go into the mail (right after laundry, to be completed as soon as possible). I’m sitting on the fence over whether to get up and make myself a sandwich for lunch, or just skipping it because I’m feeling *that* lazy, and comfortable in my chair. I’m hungry enough, but sloth usually beats out my gluttony.

However, if Newt Merred for his food bowl to be refilled, or my sweetheart wanted me to make her some lunch (or even make a run to the drugstore) I’d be on it like white on rice. I prefer making loved ones happy and comfortable far above and beyond my own comfort. In fact, I get greater comfort doing services for them, I think.

I just realized that I forgot a banana at work. I wonder if it’ll keep until Monday?

I’m digging the mailman, today. Today, I got a wonderfully moist, delicious batch of cookie-bars won from the Sopranos “who’s gonna get whacked” test, and spiffy-keen fridge marble-magnets from zoe! The card that came with it is mighty nifty, and her mail-tag has the coolest Paul Reubens logo on it. 🙂 The Bars get thumbs up from the bro as well.

For some reason, ol’ chillcam is misbehaving again. dagnabbit!

A year ago… I got spooked, prep for bear vs. man-armor, Mexican vanilla, KPMG sucks, and police mug shots of a prostitute/junkie over a decade.

Two years ago… Globetrotters (Afro of holding), Myths of pearl harbor, , Sigmund and the sea monster, chaos postcards, two anonymous quotes that are outstandingly accurate in my belief.

Sakes, is it Pearl Harbor Day, already? Hey, no hard feelings.

Kev loaned me Alien vs. Predator 2… pretty neat, but tough. It’s fun and challenging to play the face hugger.

I was cruising www.promedmail.org (I think it’s almost as good a reference as the CDC, though in a different capacity) and found an article that grabbed my attention. Bushmeat is the euphemism used in English-speaking Africa for meat derived from wildlife. (Some sites prefer to use it for meat derived from primates.) The people on Promedmail are interested in bushmeat because it has been recognized as a definite means of human infection with zoonoses. Bushmeat is one of the conjectured routes for human infection with Simian Immuno-deficiency Virus (SIV), leading to the development of HIV. Recent reports also suggest that Ebola virus may make the jump to humans through bushmeat.

The maps of west nile virus outbreaks are interesting reading, too. (More maps of assorted plagues here, but you have to cut and pate the links…the HTML is broken.. they have anthrax, influenza, and assorted animal diseases)

1911 Encyclopedia Britannica online. interesting, but not fascinating.

Time for chores, I suppose… Hmmm… Maybe a nap. (Only a little sleep last night.)
