How to Kill a Mockingbird


Looking back on my journal, it’s sort of odd to see comments from folks who have passed away. There’s a weridness about finding notes from those that have moved on, or been removed from the equation entirely.

Cleaning house… time to do it top to bottom, spic and span. I’ve hit my clutter limit again.

Ann Coulter is a former Key West drag queen? It must be true! It’s on the internet!


Monday after such a lovely long weekend. I hope to the powers of creation that the Monday meeting is blessedly brief. Rhode Island returns from vacation and will discover LH’s departure… I hope she doesn’t wig out too much.

Maybe there’ll be TeeGee pie. I have no pie here. That would get me to drink coffee.

Coffee and pie. Breakfast of champeens. It makes kids jump like little green frogs! I’m feeling extra hoppy just thinking about it! I also have a strong craving for scrambled eggs with salsa this morning.


The full moon is amazing this month.

Mel and I got together for a spot of lunch and tooling around the neighborhood. Aside from the accessories, I think Mr. Cow got a fresh coat of paint.

7028 – Season of the friendly snails

Nifty 3-D renderings


Went to the mall with Mel to get lunch and shop for Christmas prezzies for folks (where the mother surprised us in burdines), then worked on her ‘pooter to get Fruity-loops working with the midi device properly. We hung out for a bit, had a few Smirnoff ices, and hung out and chitty-chatted about this, that and the other thing for a few hours. We stopped off at a pet store, and scoped out a Siamese, even though there’s already 4 back at Mel’s place. I was tempted to bring Newt back a little buddy m’self, but brain won out over heart… this time.


Yahoo 2-person canasta is a hoot! Thank you for the game and the tutoring, Christy!


Things about my dad at 35, as far as I can recall. The year was 1980. Two sons, aged eleven and seven. His wife was a visiting day-nurse to an older lady that had a stroke. He was just getting into real estate sales to do in the background while he worked as an engineer. Fished almost every other weekend, and hunted maybe once every two months. Most of our meat was store bought, but fish was a regular staple brought in by boat, pole and hook. Fishing was really his best way to get away from it all, and he almost always had a beer in his hand if it was after 7pm. He and his family were living in one side of a duplex that was a two-bedroom, two bath home in Florida, and rented out the one-bedroom side to an older tenant. He smoked cigarettes during the week, and packed a pipe with cherry tobacco on the weekends. The neighbors were hippie/bikers named Denny and Chris, and his big TV shows were still documentaries, about war or nature. He wore his hair short, clean shaved.

He had seven years left to live. I think he was very blessed.

Things about me at 35. The Year is 2004. Newt is five years old, and far simpler to maintain than a human child. Currently seeing what the future will bring mate-wise. My brother no longer lives right next door, but I’m in a comfortable place, and am looking off and on for a two-bedroom condo. I do not smoke anything, and drink only sparingly. My neighbors are a doctor’s office and a Psychiatrist’s… the two apartments adjacent are empty, but may be populated come Dec 1. My Big TV shows are lost, and nature documentaries.. I’ve become disillusioned with most of the history channel’s offerings lately. My hair is long, almost to my belt line. I have a full beard, but am considering a reversion back to my more regular goatee.

I have no idea how much time I have left. I’m very blessed.


The new Make Love Not Spam screensaver by Lycos constantly loads web pages advertised in spam mails; this is to make sure the spammers will find they’re having impossible traffic costs.


I’ve recently registered with blogexplosion, and I expect to see a considerable amount of traffic flowing into the site. I wonder how much this service will end up hammering LJ, as more people use it to get people to swing by? Since you can route to more than one site, maybe I’ll point some hits to my friend’s page.

Even better, it’s helped me to find some pretty nifty blogs I’d not otherwise have tripped over. (Random on LJ works only if you’re looking for 18 year old girls posting about cutting and high school issues, generally.)

Went for walkies up by Riverwalk, got a call from Mel and she asked to come along and hang out. Of course, I said yes. We watched the yachts come in, hung out at the singing fountain and gabbed about our families/holidays and such. I’ll be visiting with her later today, too. I see a strong friendship forming there.


Alf’s getting a talk show? Kelliebellie is going to be happy to hear that! It’s on Fridays at 11pm, on TV Land.

7024 – Cheese and Crackers

Sweet mother of pearl … the IVR system was limping badly last night.. my poor tech had to suffer through a lot (as did I, through extension) between getting folks to reboot remote servers and just act on the issue that’s causing it to cry. Yesterday, from 7pm on to well after 9pm, The system needed nursing in a way that I couldn’t fix… the autodialer system wasn’t recognizing inserted jobs.

Poor EN was stuck at the source, trying to get calls launched over expanded areas quickly, and fortunately, we were able to do so in a reasonably timely manner, though it required a lot of hoop jumping. It’s to his credit that he was able to maintain a calm and cool head. If it was ADP, I’d have been dealing with a wailing banshee.It’s just as well that Aly wasn’t available during those hours… not much time for quality hangout while I’m giving code and tech lines to EN to call. (and calling alternate lines m’self)

Of course, it turns out that EN was mis-entering his login code, and the IVR was cool. Well, he realized it, and was up front about the error, which is to his credit. I know he won’t be making that boo boo again anytime soon!


Even though I work for a company that has random drug testing as a requirement, I don’t think we’ve ever actually had a test. The last time I was made to pee in a cup was 3/11/2003, and that was just for a filler crap gig at TAG. (I think Katt worked there for a while, as well as Fred.)

As I tear the fabric of time and space, and am reminded of the muffin tree.


Great Ray Bradbury Quote –

“If we listened to our intellect we’d never have a love affair. We’d never have a friendship. We’d never go in business because we’d be cynical: ‘It’s gonna go wrong.’ Or, ‘She’s going to hurt me.’ Or, ‘I’ve had a couple of bad love affairs, so therefore …’ Well, that’s nonsense. You’re going to miss life. You’ve got to jump off the cliff all the time and build your wings on the way down.”
