Good road to follow

7674 - One more day to the weekend.

google talk - Google IM /w voice chat is pretty keen.. still a little primitive, but a lot of room for growth... I was wondering why there was no google messenger before now. If anyone would care to add me, I'm, natch.

I've been bad.. spent more time playing on the net than doing any actual writing. Well, if I don't do any tomorrow, I'll have plenty of time while on call Saturday to get any backlog caught up. Maybe sooner, if this whackadoo storm actually causes folks to stay inside.

Hurricane killed Danny's school schedule, so if the winds are less than 75 mph, we'll probably get together and hit the pub again tomorrow. Lucky.. I'm still reporting for duty today, and likely tomorrow, too.

Katrina is currently 80 miles due east, traveling west at 8 miles an hour, max winds at 50 mph.

Too classy or longhair? Have a little "so awful, it's great" instead.

Robertson apologized. Good, as well he should. I wonder what that makes him look like to his followers? A Backpedal, or someone who realizes that what they did is wrong putting things right... or as someone who gives insincere lip-service to the media?

I picked up some sundries I needed for the house, and discovered a new kind of shampoo (it was on sale for $.79 a bottle) V05 moisture milks- blueberry which makes hair shiny, lustrous, and makes me smell like a giant, delicious pop tart when stepping fresh out of the shower.

No kidding. The scent is *exactly* the same as a cooked, unfrosted blueberry pop tart (cracked in half), minus the charring that I put on mine to add crunch and he-man flavor.

I don't know if this is good or bad... I'll wait and see if my coworkers can detect it, and if it's too weird.

117 years ago - A plant grows in Mexteca, Mexico, which the natives call the "herb of prophecy." A dose of it produces sleep similar in all respects to the hypnotic state. The subject answers with closed eyes all questions that are put to him, and is completely insensible. The pathologic state brings with it a kind of prophetic gift and double sight. Furthermore he loses his will and is completely under the control of another. On returning to himself he remembers nothing of what he has done. -Excelsior Cottager, August 25, 1888

7676 - Early release due to weather!

Home, but still on call until 5pm tonight. I do have Friday off as a hurrican day after all, but if EN isn't able to do so, I have to cover phones from 8am to 5pm. I hope he prefers the longer shift, since I work Sat from 8am to 8am sunday.

I suspect it'll be quite the DVD, clean out the cupboards, snuggle with Newt weekend. I can go with that.

Bro gets out of jail tomorrow, time served. I hope he can start fresh.

7677 - Phone Post: - power out

99K 0:30
“Heyyyy, it's Scotto. Power's out at my house. Looks like the entire block / downtown Fort Lauderdale is all out - didn't waste any time stutting everything off. Winds seem pretty high, not a lot of rain - it's kind of neat - there's no lights on in any houses out here at all. Just a lot of breezes, but it looks like it'll be a weatherable thing. I'll talk to you more about it later, you have a good night, dear journal. Bye. (Assorted windy noises)”
