Late Start today...

ultrababy-x


My morning, the short form.

My spark plugs must be misfiring. I went to bed earlyish last night...and I must've been asleep before my head hit the pillow. I like to read before bed, or at least put on my CPAP. about 3am, I awakened with mouth very dry and with Newt nestled securely along my right leg... a place he very rarely sleeps. I reach over, get a swig of water, and put on the CPAP, all the while my bod was unrested. Flash forward to 10am. I wake to Newtie pitty-patiting my face, and I thank him. Sometime during the night, the big brain froze, so I set him to reboot, and played with the kitty as the machine comes up... I check my mail and chitchat with my sweetie, then hop in the shower, and head to work. I'm still tired.. and haven't gotten around to scarfing breakfast yet. [Update - grabbed a bagel and two oj's off the roach coach ~12:30]

word of the day

wag \WAG\, noun:
A humorous person; a wit; a joker.

Wag in this sense perhaps comes from the obsolete wag-halter, "a rogue; one likely to be hanged."

Lots of wags of assorted sorts here. I'm sort of surprised the dictionary doesn't mention scalawag.

Been noticing folks are sick all over lj... colds abound in Boston, Maryland, Florida, Canada... all over my friend's list. you guys are getting it all germy! feel better soon. *big hugs*

I fear no colds, because of ultrababy-x, and his ladybug virus repelling helmet is near!!

test poll

allow me to experiment, as the faq isn't too clear on how this works, (at least to me) Since it's rude to ask your age, I'll ask...

day's been going slow, lots of work, my love is in meetings much of the day, apparently one of my photo-hosts (my website, too) is down, so the flash operation of my lj, and many of the embedded pictures are unavailable. No story ideas are comeing to me for the hobo plot... I think stream of thought will fix that, though. Not a lot of time ot seek new residence... I really would like to bounce out quickly.

ah well. It's Thursday.

Some good things -

My sweetheart and I really communicate. I love talking to her. Just can't get enough. Heck, I love her. been saying it and meaning it for nearly seven months now, and I am still warmed, delighted by the thought of her. I must've done something really good to be in a relationship with her... whatever it was, I'm glad!

Also -

Diana's on vacation for another week. one less thorn in my side... much simpler to do work without her wheezing smoke into my personal space.
Dale on Vacation tomorrow at noon... I'll have the office to myself, and will have free run of the machines, without having to kick him off.
Dan'll help me move... school's out for summer!
Dan'll be able to goof around more, in general! :)

"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion."
-- Carl Sagan, 1987 CSICOP keynote address
