Saturday’s Events

May 31, 2009

How it got to be 2:21AM, I have no idea.  I sat down a few minutes ago to read a few pages of my Harry Dresden novel, and got up when I figured I’d better get to blogging before my eyes got any scratchier.  Sheesh.  Tempis fugit becomes more meaningful every day. Saturday morning was […]

May 30, 2009

Saturday I’m headed up to good old Schenectady NY for my 10-year undergraduate reunion.  We call it ReUnion because the school’s name is Union College and undergraduate institutions love those catchy catch phrase thingies.  I’m going to guess that it’s been about 8 years since I last was there.

@absolutspacegrl: My Favorite Rocket Scientist

May 29, 2009

One of my favorite people to follow on Twitter is @absolutspacegrl.  She’s a rocket scientist – literally. She works for NASA at the Johnson Space Center in Houston TX and tweets about what’s going on at NASA.  And unlike most “famous” people on Twitter, she’s engaging.  By which I mean it’s possible to have an […]

On Faith

May 28, 2009

Yes, another post about that which I do not possess.  But it seems so cool!  It must be awesome to have faith.  Again, I’m talking about the kind of faith that works in all seasons, in all situations.  The kind that people who “walk with god” have. Yeah, yeah, I know:  be careful what you […]

On Being a Ninja at Work

May 27, 2009

I’m a one-legged man in an ass-kicking contest.  And I’m winning.  Because I know all kinds of crazy one-legged martial arts.  I’m a fuckin’ ninja.  You can’t touch this, as MC Hammer once said.  Heck, maybe he still does – I wouldn’t know ’cause I sure as hell don’t follow him on Twitter. Things are […]

Back to Work

May 26, 2009

I’m not so sure that I’m psyched for this to be a short week.  Yes I am. This was definitely a good weekend.  I got the rest I needed.  I was talking to my friend Mike this evening and said that I’m hoping my motivation hasn’t completely disappeared – that I’ll be able to jump back […]

Ahhh – Living in a Vacuum

May 25, 2009

The last couple of days have been very pleasant for me.  I’m totally out of routine, and it feels good.  It feels like I stepped out of the race and started wandering about in the woods for a bit.  I got my kayak in the water on Sunday and, to paraphrase Frank the Tank statement upon […]

Good Possibility of a Lazy Weekend

May 24, 2009

I totally forgot that it’s supposed to rain all weekend here in Jersey.  Saturday was a beautiful day.  I spent most of it in bed.  I got up around 1:30, ran some errands and spent about 4 hours at work.  I’m pretty sure I got done the things I needed to have complete before Tuesday.  […]

Psychic Encounter in Sedona

May 23, 2009

For a while now, I’ve been meaning to talk about my experiences in Sedona last summer.  I mentioned Sedona in a couple of other posts – “2012” and “Alcyone – At the Feet of the Master” – but I haven’t yet discussed my psychic reading on our last day there.  I kept a journal of […]

Would You Cheat?

May 22, 2009

A couple of days ago I was talking to some of the guys at work about Howard Stern – his show, his divorce, etc.  I remarked that my biggest takeaway from his movie Private Parts was that it seemed almost entirely dedicated to his wife.  I found a major overarching theme to be that his […]
