7405 – I identify with the Hanged man a lot.


Went out and about with Danny yesterday. We didn’t do movies, instead, we hit tarpon bend – I had some conch, he had clams. Ashley, our waitress was nice, the food was average fare.

Afterwards, we went to both Barnes & Noble and Archives for Book-snooping. I didn’t buy any, but was tempted by a few things. Danny got a study guide for Earth Science and Astronomy, to help with certification and teaching those courses next year. We looked for Pratchett’s “The Last Hero”, but it wasn’t in stock.

Dan left about 5ish, and I sat back home… noticed my TV cable is out. I called Comcast, but all I got was a recording, and notification that a human would get back to me on Tuesday. Hopefully, it’ll return before that, but now that it’s morning, and still nothing, I suspect not. I hoofed it down the road to catch the first moonlight movie… I’d forgotten how good Forrest Gump is. Before the main feature, they showed a Laurel and Hardy movie – flying deuces., but stopped it about 20 minutes in, when they realized it wasn’t a short, but over an hour long. The other flub was that at 11pm sharp, the sprinklers turned on. I’m quite thankful that I parked off the grass and sat on a sidewalk bench facing the movie. Side note, there’s something meta about watching Forrest wait for a bus on screen while sitting in a park bench off-screen.

Pictures and doodles from yesterday.:

My original spot… I opted for a side seat, because I didn’t want to see a lot of heads in the way of the screen when folks got up for breaks.

Movie start… still twilight.

Pov with night lights. the parking garage was rather bright, but not a distraction.

Drawn during the “coconut shrimp, pan fried shrimp, etc” scene.

I saw a bicycle rickshaw roll by and I got to thinking tarot-y chariot thoughts – Wheel of Fortune, hanged man, and tower are on top. Interesting that my memory reversed both hanged man and tower details. I’m surprised that I didn’t draw the lovers and the devil, come to think of it.

Walk home – buk 50, d0se and deph were at Riverwalk sometime earlier, it seems.

In the sidewalk lights near Ikon, a pair of desiccated lizard husks rest in peace. Who knows how they got inside, but they were trapped.. never to leave.


Enough procrastinating, I need to sit down and do my writing assignment that was due 2 days ago. Naughty Scotto.

“So, after Joss Whedon is fired from the Wonder Woman movie because Serenity bombed, who do you think they’ll get to direct it?”



You Are The Wayfarer Guide
“I’ll show you the way.”

Your deep insight and quick wisdom never ceases to amaze those around you. You are the guiding light for many of those you know and are not afraid to help anyone else who asks. Not very many acknowledge your tremendous help and effort, but you do not mind that so much. You’ve seen what is in store for them, and will be there should they need your help. You enjoy people in general, but are very selective of who you let see the real you. Others see you as an enigma of sorts, a mystery that is seemingly ever changing.

Which Classic Story Role Do You Play?
brought to you by Quizilla

You Were Actually Born Under:
Full of spunk, you are the original party animal.
You bring fun, activity, and stimulation to any event.
Self-control is not one of your strong points; you have been known to over indulge.
Cheerful and energetic, you can turn the most boring thing into something fun.

You are most compatible with a Rat or Dragon.

You Should Have Been Born Under:

You are totally loyal, faithful, and honest.
However, you don’t trust others to be as ethical as you are!
Straight forward and direct, you really aren’t one for small talk.
You are a great listener – and an agreeable companion when you’re in a good mood!

You are most compatible with a Tiger or Horse.


When someone on the internet posts something in their journal, and leaves a comment field open, I assume that they’re willing to have advice posted there. When comments are turned off, I assume they don’t want your input. Pretty simple. Any variations on that theme are usually left in the same post.


Hooray for the fridge magnet messages received yesterday!

The reason for aviation

Shake, shake, shake, Senora, shake your body line
Shake, shake, shake, Senora, shake it all the time
