9574 – Thursday 1/8/9

Chris’s Merto car conked out – (re-parked with the ignition on) BHK got her from the metro prior to my pickup. She couldn’t reach Larry – his cellpohne was turned off. As a result, Chris came with us to dinner with Tina, at Mexico.

Supper was good, we all chit-chatted a bit – Tina’s going to the inauguration – I’m passing – too crowded and mobby for me. Best to just stay home and enjoy coverage via the news while I relax in my jammies.

Newton leaping down from his perch – BHK relocated Pyecam for a more worm’s eye view. Newtcam seems less active these days – time to open the windows, maybe.

Went to Matt’s place for gingerbread decoration with Tina, Cookie, and assorted other folks.

9464 – Wednesday

Still feeling a smidgen overtired and generally weary.

I think it’s just been from all the hubbub at work and family-wise. I think being stressed about the bro has given me some clenched muscles and attitude issues, which I am trying to work with, too.

BHK made some awesome quiche for supper… I know how spoiled I am. Two types – broccoli and cheddar, and soy-sausage with mozzarella. Sides of potato cakes, and more broccoli & cheese.

Comfort food for a cool temperature evening. Good stuff.

I’m going back to my 8/7/6/5/4/3/2/1 year ago archives soon – maybe this entry. I’ve been terribly lax about entries.. just been too busy.. or too tired from being too busy to write much.

Watched the first installment of Feasting on Waves. Alton Brown has a good gig going for him… getting his company to send him sailing around the Caribbean, sampling food and just taking in the life there.

doing archive now, reminded me that I got a flu shot again this year, last Saturday, along with allergy shots… and we saw Tina and Matt on the Boardwalk this time last year, too! When I mention getting a flu shot to people, most seem to say "Oh, I don’t do that" like it’s something terrible. I don’t know… they seem to work for me.

I’ll include more pictures from the ghost walk, corn maze and other goodies sooner or later – they’re all at my flickr account already – just a matter of putting them here.

1 year ago – (9017… 447 entries ago in 365 days) got a flu shot, visited a bunch o’docs, saw tina and Matt on the boardwalk. sore throat, Michaels for craft stuff, fillings, atw man, tiny toys from target.

9382 – Thursday

Tooth is still giving me minor fits. Antibiotic seems to be taking it down, though. It was a little hard to chew supper, but it was quite tasty.

BHK went thrifting yesterday with Tina – got some good loot – a few chick-lit books for herself, a kepler and his mom on witch trial book for me, along with a white dress shirt, also for me – some brand new kitchen knives. (as opposed to what… bathroom knives? office knives?)

Additionally, when she got my antibiotics at the drugstore, she picked me up yellow and red canisters of drying model clay. could be handy to make some game pieces, or just silly fun sculptures and items. It’ll be good practice for future sculpey stuff.

Seeing BQ.. erm, SaH reminded me that BHK and I are long overdue for a meal at the vegetable garden. Rockville isn’t all that far away and despite what R.E.M. says, I could hit the Micro Center up there, too. I’d also like to visit Yuan Fu, which was our alternate plan if VG was closed.

I guess that since I do crab and shrimp that I’m more of a pescetarian than a true veggie.



One of the most nifty game ideas in a long time – levelhead – it uses a hand-held solid-plastic cube as its only interface. On-screen it appears each face of the cube contains a little room, each of which are logically connected by doors. In one of these rooms is a character. By tilting the cube the player directs this character from room to room in an effort to find the exit.

check out the video demo to get a good idea how it works.

Also – it looks like the Ghostbusters game is in a bit of trouble… may not get released – at least for a while. It looks good, and the chance for another year of development might even make it worth the wait.

9347 Friday – July 4

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rq2_YKQGE_U Since we saw the fireworks on the bay yesterday (fireworks at beaches are staggered – different cities do them on different days so you can attend them all week and weekend long), we did our own today. Matt and Tina came back over, as did Chris and Larry.

Matt helped me quite a bit with the grill and lighting of the pyrotechnics. We ate leftovers from the 3rd, still plenty of burgers, corn, and mac&cheese for the eating!

Not much aside form that, dear journal!

Fireworks were excellent – not as crowded as we expected.

Lunch at Tina’s was good, despite the lateness – we can be a collective of procrastination… fortunately it is a known variable.

BHK has learned about expelling anal ducts in dogs… her desire for a puppy isn’t as great as it was.. but that only redoubles the want for ducks, llamas and more kitties.

A good time was had by all.

9337 – saturday

Went Yard-“sailing” this morning with Tina and BHK – Mostly a bust, but one stop got us a half-dozen unopened buried blueprints puzzles (forgive the ebay link – they’re out of print.), copies of mastermind and upwords, a couple of good books, Max Payne 2 , recipe software, not to mention some other loot that BHK picked up for a total of $8.

I stopped off at the doc’s for shots, bhk and Tina hit wal-mart for some supplies.

After, we hit fab brew, where I got an Italian Soda (cherry), BHK and Tina each got some sort of coffee drink, and then we bounced over to Gallo’s Deli it just opened this week – I got a 3-cheese sub, bhk got meatball and Tina got Turkey & cheese. We’ll be back – it’s pretty average right now, but they’re still getting things in order – it’s no Selby bay sub shop, but they’re three blocks away from the house, and there’s a lot of potential there.

Came back home, crashed out for a nap.

Got up, hung out with the in-laws while they worked the garden, hot dogs, garden green beans and roasted corn for supper! We ate late, and I consumed far too much delicious food.

Watched some National Treasure, Fawlty Towers (drunk chef with a thing for Manuel episode), a moment of the Brothers Solomon (don’t bother) and Army of Darkness.



If you’re heading out to the G-Fest in July, you’ve got a treat in store: the premiere of Godzilla Zero Hour, a high-quality fan film about Tokyo’s notorious mega-monster Godzilla fighting giant flaming, flying turtle Gamera.





Scientists think that Mars’ alkaline soil might be able to grow asparagus.

Although he said further tests would have to be conducted, Mr Kounaves said the soil seemed “very friendly… there is nothing about it that is toxic,” he said. “It is the type of soil you would probably have in your back yard — you know, alkaline. You might be able to grow asparagus in it really well.”

9299 – Saturday

Had a lovely time shopping for Alan’s b’day present wrapping after my standard morning’s shots. Got a haircut (contrary to photo, I don’t plan on gelling it into a faux-hawk regularly), Lunched at Ledo’s, but I think the stop off at *$ for a little coffee drink took gave BHK a bit of sourbelly, so we headed home, napped and listened to the gumball-sized hail fall unexpectedly from the sky. (There were also tornado warnings, but no sign of that.)

The weather eased while we waited for the in-laws to get ready for the party… we were aiming for a launch time of about 5pm, and we left circa 6:40. Fortunately, we took Chris’s eternal case of time dilation into account, so we got there only about 10 minutes late.

Alan’s party was nice – quite a diverse group of people there, drunks and non-drunks – I finally got to meet JC and Mamacita, but Mamacita didn’t bring her Chihuahua with – maybe next time. I’d say the little house had about 50 people in it at prime time – they hired a doorman, bartender, and a few waiters – but it was a truly casual and pleasant outing… not a lot of seating, but standing wasn’t bad, thanks to my epidural earlier in the week.

He didn’t open his goodies – his true b’day is Sunday… I imagine he’ll like the blooming tea.

Tina and Matt were there – looks like Matt’s losing some weight – Good for him!



Interesting stuff. -(to me, anyhow) Built-in command line windows security tools.

9054 – fri

BHK, Chris and I went to Ledo’s for supper… Tina and Matt might’ve gone with us, but they opted not to go. I figure they’ll be more interested in socializing later on down the line.

According to the National Center for Health Statistics, the average height for an adult female in the United States is 63.8 inches (5 feet, 3.8 inches) and for a man it is 69.2 inches (5 feet, 9.2 inches)

That seems a bit shorter than the average women I see every day, but about right for men.

I wonder if the height difference between women and men contributes very much to gender roles?


random statement – I’m in the mood for popcorn.


another random statement – I’d like to see the northern lights.


What American accent do you have? (Best version so far)

Neutral

You’re not Northern, Southern, or Western, you’re just plain -American-. Your national identity is more important than your local identity, because you don’t really have a local identity. You might be from the region in that map, which is defined by this kind of accent, but you could easily not be. Or maybe you just moved around a lot growing up.
