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.

9491 – Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween, Dear Journal!

Current mood – Sic gorgiamus allos subjectatos nunc

Trimmed the ‘stache to less sleazy-looking levels, but the whole goatee is coming back or I’m cutting it all off.

After work yesterday, BHK and I met with Adam and Eric for dinner at Hard times cafe. It was $4.99 chili mac night, so I was all about that. BHK and Adam got the chili dogs, and Eric took the healthy high road with grilled chicken sammich.

we spent an hour or two talking about politics, who is voting for what and why – I hope Adam finds his voters reg card. Eric seems to be allying with the ‘phants, while BHK and I are leaning a bit more toward the ‘keys. It was all civil, though, and we had a good time ribbing one another.

Played a smidgen more of fallout 3 last night… got gunned down severely while working under bhk’s guidance.

NOT a game for kids… pretty graphic when you shoot a guy in the head – and a lot of dubious morality.

Right now I’m playing the high karma path… being nice, helping out. I can see going back and wiping out the town, though, later, just to watch it go up in a mushroom cloud.

Not going to do the trick-or-treater thing tonight – instead, we’re off after work to the Edgar Allan Poe grave and memorial site in Baltimore for a little walk around the necropolis, and have a generally spooky time.

9202 – friday

End of the week, at last, at last. Back is feeling a bit better… must’ve slept on it right on Thursday night, for a change! Maybe, if all goes well, we can hit the Carl Barks exhibit in Baltimore. We have midday plans for Saturday (see below), and who knows what Easter Sunday will bring – but if not this weekend, perhaps sometime before the end of the month… I don’t have a strong need to visit – the review is not the most complimentary (mainly due to the fact that most of his early stuff that I like is long gone, trashed back in the day)… but if we’re in the neighborhood visiting the Art Museum, or the Aquarium, why not? (more on Carl Barks )

I don’t think the the lj content strike is going to make a difference, and I’m more interested in seeing how much of my reading list changes, if at all this weekend. If lj poops out, there are plenty of other sites that offer similar functionality… and my RSS reader will allow me to collect feeds from whoever wants me to read ’em.

Regarding teamorange – the first colorwar2008 scrimmages will begin in a few days. I’m interested to see what sort of project Ze has in mind. So far, I’ve found teams blue, verygreen, puce, chartreuse, purple, gold, plaid, red, pink, white, clear and brown in addition to orange. If any other players are reading this, let me know, so I can follow you on twitter! #FF6600, baby! [update: See also – colorwars – there’s a team octarine!]

It seems ol’ Ze has quite a following – but I knew that. I just hope he uses his mighty net-powers for good, rather than evil.

Lunch tomorrow with Adam and his twin bro Eric. It’s always interesting to see them together, because they were raised in different households. Adam, at his mom’s (and more to the point, mostly at Larry & Chris’s), Eric at his pop’s. Adam seems to be the more together kid, athletic, better in school, less shifty. Eric is the party guy, partying hard, skipping class and spending more time looking to mate than to study; I.e. typical 18-year-old male.

Nature vs Nurture, live and in front. Both are basically good guys, and similar as brothers can be – but hardly duplicates.

I sneakily added a video to the lunchtime rendezvous entry about a week or so back. Filmed with the palm-cam, the image is warmed, grainy, and silly, not to mention in quicktime format. For some reason, google video doesn’t transfer sound properly form the palm video during the conversion, so I’m hosting it in my old lj archive location on my website. Speaking of which, I have a palm doodle there that reflects that there’s still a lot of rain happening at the ol’ bus stop, but I don’t mind.

windy, too, though I don’t have that much length anymore, hair-wise.

Best worth1000 competition in a while. Superhero ModRen some are better than others. I’m partial to this one.
