8240 – On justice and on friendship, there is no price, but there are established credit limits.

Walkabout was fun, but uneventful. I wore a ball cap this time, and it’s a good thing… my arms are a lot darker than when I left. I put in just under 10 miles of footwork yesterday, and slept quite well as a result.

Visited another different Thai place nearby for lunch… man, the food was awesome. Bamboo shoot salad served with lime juice, chiles, mint leaves, rice powder and cabbage. Yum woon sen – clear bean thread noodles with browned tofu, chile paste, onions, mushrooms, lemon grass and mint. Tom kah soup – a spicy coconut soy milk concoction with lemon grass, lime leaves and other spices. It was all totally vegan, too! Not one hint of critter in there.

I think that once I confirm my techs are switched over, I’ll do some more walkies as well, and hit that Dali exhibit… maybe take myself out for sushi (or as bhk likes to call it, @). [edit – whoops! the museum is closed on Sunday]


DabbleDB: Online App Building For Everyone

*very* handy little resource… simplifies MS Access or SQL for the average web app nicely.


Speaking of which, I put OpenOffice on my new pc, and had forgotten how keen it is, compared to MS Office. Open Source, all the features, none of the bloat. Win-win. It’s a total MS Office replacement, now that BASE is in there.

“Yeah..even now she sulks like Achilles in his tent. Achilles?…It’s the Iliad?…It’s Homer?… Read a book!”

Had a moment of feeling a bit like Handy there yesterday. People get very touchy when opinions differ…. The other side got pretty wound up to the point of hostility and hyper-defensiveness over something amazingly trivial, (a difference of opinion – I feel that Micheal Crichton is an anti-science hack writer, who ends stories with explosions rather than more satisfactory conclusions — She thought “he is awesome”.) and it really could only be settled by having a detente called. I have to make a point of just walking away at the first sign of pointlessness. I can agree to disagree, especially with someone I don’t have to see every day. I’m glad that nonsense is over now.

Information

Unhappiness in relationships, according to Dr. Gary Chapman, is often due to the fact that we speak different love languages. Sometimes we don’t understand our partner’s requirements, or even our own. We all have a “love tank” that needs to be filled in order for us to express love to others, but there are different means by which our tank can be filled, and there are different ways that we can express love to others.

Moment of Lyric – mp3

There’s a city, draped in net
Fisherman net
And in the half light, in the half light
It looks like every tower
Is covered in webs
Moving and glistening and rocking
Its babies in rhythm
As the spider of time is climbing
Over the ruins

There were hundreds of people living here
Sails at the windows
And the planes came crashing down
And many a pilot drowned
And the speed boats flying above
Put your hand over the side of the boat
What do you feel?

My mother and her little brown jug
It held her milk
And now it holds our memories
I can hear her singing
“Little brown jug don’t I love thee”
“Little brown jug don’t I love thee”
Ho ho ho, hee hee hee

I hear her laughing
She is standing in the kitchen
As we come in the back door
See it fall
See it fall
Oh little spider climbing out of a broken jug
And the pieces will lay there a while
In a house draped in net
In a room filled with coral
Sails at the window
Forests of masts
Put your hand over the side of the boat
Put your hand over the side of the boat
