9983 – Thursday

Growing my beard out again…. time for the "hunt for red october" look to keep my face protected from the elements that are coming. Oddly, Kathleen took today to do a mr potato head of my current beardo icon… serendipity?

Adam came over to visit last night. and we played a bit of dokopon before he was off to his church group meeting. No sign of andrew… he was going to come over for dinner, but double booked.

BHK and I continued playing a bit after Adam left and got some Papa John’s pizza, because it was too windy, cold and rainy to go out to the grocery store or the chinese place.

Today was mostly spent looking for work, watching tv, and shooting skags in borderlands. I did take a brief launch outside with neighbor Chris to swap his car for a loaner while the window got fixed…. BHK made some amazing ravioli and pink sauce for supper… full after one bowl, with plenty for tomorrow’s lunch and then some.

We finished watching Journeyman – it left on a high note, and I supect that it was cancelled just in time… our dvr is slowly draining of saved shows from 2007.

9803 – TGIF

Today we’ll be celebrating Adam’s 20th birthday a day early.

I was born on the day of a full moon, 40 years, 5 months, 15 days ago, about an hour after sunrise on the 33rd day of 1969. Candlemas, Groundhog Day, National Change your Windshiel Wipers Day. (I really dig wolframalpha)

We’ve got to butter his nose today, and get him some razzles. Grill up some hot dogs, give him a cake to munch – maybe some ice cream.

It’s cloudy, but hot as heck.. thankfully it rained to cool tihngs off during Adam’s party.

We left so BHK could finish her studies – just as well, my back is really crimped today.

Walter Cronkite has died; he was 92. CBS News has a nice remembrance.

9787 – Independence Day comes early to our neck of the woods.

Third of July. The twin beaches always celebrate a day early, because everyone likes to go to DC or someplace else for the 4th.

Andrew was looking dapper, and the fireworks were a-ok by me. we spent the day grilling – thankfully, it was cool and comfy at windward key. I grilled the dogs and etc, while bhk made a funfetti cake.

We played some Can’t stop, Huggermugger and of course, apples to apples. I was hoping for a little try at dictionary dabble  (aka Balderdash, but dabble has much cooler pawns)

BHK took most of the Dock pics, I experimented a bit with the camera settings for the fireworks.

let’s see now –

Recapping –

Got my 401k comp check from my last gig – That worked out well. I told a little fib to BHk, and said that I expected about $500, and we got about eight times that amount. (I was planning for about six times.)

Went to Annapolis and promptly deposited that little windfall in the bank – then stopped off at the Amish Farmer’s Market for breakfast. BHK and I split two – ate half and then swapped Chocolate Chip Pancakes, home fries, cheddar cheese omelet, wheat toast – I let BHK eat up all of the bacon, of course.

Opted out of going to a movie – nothing we want to see just this moment.. maybe next week when it’s less crowded.  We did get a few other goodies at the farmer’s market – cheese, strawberries, trinket’s for our 4’th of July cake (gummy stars and confetti sprinkles), a blueberry fritter for me for tomorrow’s breakfast (or tonight’s midnight snack)

BHK remembered that I was due for shots (skipped when em was here) and we went there for a bit. Adam called, and mentioned that he was coming down for the 3rd’s fireworks, an was bringing Anna – so, it was a quick trip to the grocery to be sure he had a full belly.

I was feeling pretty out of it at that point, so I rested in the car. Going to nap now that we’re home. sweet dreams, dear journal.

added for no reason, except that I like Em and Otters – S6303931

9725 – Tuesday

Happy Anniversary, LJ – 9 years doing entries. Hard to believe, though my posts of late have been petty scanty. I need to get back on the wagon and produce something I’ll want to look back on in a few years.

IN back news, I got my second epidural today… not working so great – may be due to scar tissue issues. next one will be injected through my side rather than the back, if I get another.

After my shot to the spine (pictures to follow), we visited at the in-laws for a few – had chinese food and hung out – Adam came over and played a little guitar with Larry and Stone.

Adam fessed up to trying adderall before his finals… not sure how happy  / unhappy I am with that. Not prescribed to him. Misuse can easily become abuse.

Watched Children of Men – not bad, but not mind-blowing, either. Worth seeing on tv, but perhaps not a non-netflix rental.

9660 – wednesday

Franklin was back – and happy to have a little nibble for breakfast. I ate my bagel and gave him treats and pets for breakkies.

speaking of critters –  BHK master list of things for us to adopt –

  1. duck
  2. llama
  3. alpaca
  4. puggle
  5. griffon (spunky one)
  6. pig
  7. baby otter (preferably 2 )

Comcast came back – apparently they didn’t complete the disconnect from the "walled garden". Fortunately, BHK was savvy enough to tell them that our equipment wasn’t bad – told them to get one off the truck, and test – failed, and that led them to call and fix earlier.

They reset the router though – I’m going to have to rename and reset some security. (not crazy about having it called "linksys" or "default" when "mr meaty" or "salmagundia" will do better.

Let’s see how well this stays together.

Fooling around near the bus stop, while waiting for BHK to come get me – it’s pretty gray outside for springtime, yet, and plenty cool.


After work tonight, BHK picked me up, an we went to Pizza Hut with Adam. Brought him back his hoodie and power cable left behind the other night he slept over, as well as some little treats picked up for him at 7-11 (chips, gummis, soda)

Adam is still not interested in getting BHK a Llama via his rental company, and we were all too tired to do candlepin bowling.

Dropped him off, saw a cd/video game exchange place… swung in for a moment – not a bad collection of stuff, and the prices look right. I’ll be back.

We got home, and now are heading to bed… early, but both of us are bushed!

1 year ago – gentle day, sammich issues, why not be a freelance writer, dead bill buckley, Hillary fib, political flip flops, I was Santa, Hoss slow, I suck at chess, voice post – stuff seen at bus stop (w/doodle), ducks witness a thief.

2 years ago – newt, pye, tigger and a spongebob ice pop in the sun pictures, bro drama, hot fuzz preview, springtime cough

3 years ago – porch entry, newtcam pic, consulting work, zeppelin hotels, hornsuit

9652 – Tuesday – St. Patty’s Day!

Happy St. Patty’s, All you Irish!
(And I think everyone is Irish today.)


In-laws and Adam came over tonight – BHK made wonderful Thai Curry soup, and it was a meal fit for a king!

Added Bonus of the day – she got a food processor for $13 – price must’ve been marked wrong, as it said $26 (on sale from $40ish)

It’s a school night – just enough time to fix Adam’s mac and hit the sack! G’nite, dear journal!

I’m a little out of whack today – hopefully tomorrow will be better.

Quiz-meme –

With technology on our doorstep and it’s affect on daily living, how concerned are you?
Tag your friends and see what they think. Cut and paste the questions and replace my answers with your own.

1. Do you see currency being replaced entirely by debit accounts and wired transactions by 2050?
No. I think that there will always be a desire for a harder to track form of currency, especially for consensual crime.

2. Do you feel intrusions into our very thoughts by technology in the next 10 years?
Facebook and Livejournal are already here!

3. If transactions become entirely electronic, do you feel that every thing you buy, sell or earn will be recorded?

4.Of the 3 questions above, do you feel this data will be accessible by government and industry?

5. Do you think this information could be used to control you in any way? Mishandled?
Certainly, which is why I suspect currency will not die.

6. Are you aware that scanning devices are now capable of translating our thoughts?
To a degree.

7. Are you aware that devices are becoming so small and integrated that they could be as small as a cell phone, and perform all of the actions exampled above including what cell phones already do now?

8. After viewing this link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nZ-VjUKAsao and reading this article http://www.newscientist.com/article/dn16751-brain-scan-reveals-memories-of-where-youve-been.html
Do you still doubt the future possibility of technology?

9. would you like to play a game of poker wearing such a device if no one realized your ability?

10. Do you think others would?
