scotto monkeypulse

9253 -Thurs

Lovely day today.

Lots of gypsy moth and / or tent caterpillar nests in the crooks of trees around here. Seeing birds and moths in flight through the early morning fog is something magical, if you'll excuse the lack of a less cliched expression, dear journal. I really dislike defoliation, but watching moths and butterflies flit around makes me happy. The first date I had with BHK, we saw a luna moth in the parking lot of Mama Lucias, and we were both captivated by it. Now of course, it's doing advertising for a sleep aid.

Believe it or not, I'm a very quiet cricket, too.

Tomorrow will be my 18 month (I just spelled it moth... on the brain) wedding anniversary. Good stuff! only 33 more of those until our 50 year mark!

Goal at the doc today was muscle relaxers or a cortisone shot, maybe an appointment with a physical therapist? I don't want to take narcotics for this, or only in an emergency.

Results were pretty positive - found a potentially good resource for physical therapy, and a few non-dopey pain fixers. I'm going to do more research on the different drugs before taking them this weekend.

After the doc, we went to Ledo's - BHK got a cookin' break. Yummy, but not as good as her stuff.

A month after the beta dropped, Linux distro Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron is officially out. Besides running GNOME 2.22 and Firefox 3 Beta 5, a big new feature is Wubi support, which'll let Ubuntu live on the same partition as Windows and makes it easy to uninstall if you want to retreat back into Microsoft's bosom. If you're Li-curious, now's a good time to try. The site's getting hammered so torrent might be your best bet.



Is it vain wonder if people I haven't seen in years ever think of me? Not even friends or people I knew really well... but random classmates, ex-coworkers, etc. I sometimes contemplate my effects on people long after I've gone. There are any number of folks who don't know me from Adam that have caused changes in the way I think or react to things.



More random spam journals adding me - I wonder what is causing it? Is it the time of year? Same thing happened a year ago. ban_set is still my best friend when it comes to dealing with them - far more expedient than dealing with lj-abuse team. I suspect it's a side-effect of the number of google hits the journal gets... ad folks trying to get some free hits.



Assorted doodles done recently on the palm, usually on the bus, or at the stop in the morning.

From the night we missed the scarlet pimpernel. I still think of the Daffy duck version whenever I hear the title.
I had a lot on my mind that day... supposed to represent swirling colors that remain discrete, but it looks pretty static.
A scribble made while waiting for the bus. Not jacket weather anymore, but not sweating in shirtsleeves yet, either.
From yesterday. The color doesn't do justice to her hair's brighness, nor does the balloon properly exhibit her boomingly loud voice.

Ah, Almost Friday.
