My HIDA scan…radioactive stuff injected while you glow for the scanner to check gall bladder function. That’s bile going from my liver into the intestines. But my gall bladder is apparently in stealth mode…
Not at chicken poop bingo, but at the general raffle. How ’bout that!?!
Seriously. At a bar in Albuquerque. Wherever the chicken poops over
the numbers, depending on the numbers you drew, perhaps nets you a
Out in the middle of nowhere.
It’s cloudy today and it’s actually chilly with the wind. ABQ is next!
Carlsbad Caverns has Seattle weather…always 57 degrees and damp!
The caverns are quite impressive. Thank god for the elevator,
though…it’s 800 feet down.
On the road to Roswell next!
Over Idaho on the way to DFW enjoying WiFi Internet on my laptop from
33,000 feet..first time I’ve had the opportunity. I know this has
been around for a while now, but I’m old and it still gives me a big
WOW factor that I can browse the net from 33,000 feet while traveling
at mach 0.80 on a tiny little netbook at connection speeds I would
have sold my soul to have 10 years ago.
It’s really cool.
Sorry it’s so weird and vertical — I only had my iPhone with me.
I was able to get off work early as I did server maintenance this
weekend and then today had to drop off some recycling in SODO….and
look what graced my late lunch! A 787!
Update!! Two of them in a row! I got a video of the second one and
will post later, because, well, like any good airplane dork would do,
of course 🙂
This is our street — right at our block! What a wild night. And cold — love it!
I especially like the big bus sledding down the hill around 3:00 — and that it takes out the bus stop sign. (And even funnier is that stop is scheduled for removal, bahahaha!)
Cliff Mass is on my side!!
Per my post last week (2 down below “[waaah, waaah] This rain is abnormal [Waaaah, waaah]”) One of the Northwest’s preeminent meteorologists, The UW’s Cliff Mass, agrees with my rant! OK, he doesn’t explicitly point me out or anything, but here is an expert on weather totally backing me up on what I’ve been saying forever. Outstanding.
Here’s his post:
In fact, he’s more conservative than me in his findings — he says July 12 instead of my July 5th.
I love it when this happens — now I have an actual article by an expert to refer to when people complain (Which happens nearly every day! I swear….)
BTW, I *love* Cliff’s blog. I’m a total weather junkie.
My real day was May 7.
Read to the end…the reporter chose to quote me! April and Steve (also quoted) are good friends of mine as well (fellow airplane geeks)
787 is moving!!!
What do you get when you cross a young, pre-Miami Vice Don Johnson and the Brady Bunch’s dog Tiger who can now read minds and talk in a post-nuclear-WW4-apocalyptic world and marry it to a misogynistic film script made on a budget of about a buck fifty? Oh, and throw-in Jason Robards in mime makeup leading the extraction of, well, let’s call it viscous liquids, just to throw you for a loop…
Why, you get “A Boy and His Dog,” one of those movies that is so amazingly bad it’s completely awesome. Entrancing, even. You know the kind — so bad that after the first few minutes you simply must finish the entire thing. It’s the the biggest train wreak of a sci-fi movie ever! And I had the privilege of spending 90 minutes this Thanksgiving weekend watching it.
It’s now my favorite awesome worst movie to date. Highly recommended. Must see.
I’ve been blogging for a decade. 10 years already… huh!
While this is certainly an interesting point in a time line, it’s really only an electronic analogue to a diary. I’m sure many people have been keeping diaries for longer. Nonetheless I’m kinda tickled to meet this milestone. I started “blogging” before “blog” was even a noun or a verb; indeed before it was even a popular catchphrase. Indeed I had my first web page back in 1995 (See my “Deep Archive” link above)
That’s a lot of time and bandwidth (timewidth?) dedicated to my own banter. What have I accomplished in that time?
As it turns out quite a bit. I became a true adult (still out for some debate). I had a successful consulting company (official corporation even!) and then transferred clients/closed it after my clients became successful and got gobbled-up by other, bigger corps in what became the dot com bomb. I moved to California and back. I bought a house. Got cats. Sold a house. Bought a condo. Used five different types of blogging software. Stumbled into a great relationship. And generally observed what made me laugh and ranted upon the stuff that irritated.
As I look back at some of my entries it makes me smile and laugh a lot. Also I cringe a lot…was I THAT shrill, really? Or was I THAT stupid, really? But that’s the deliciousness of time and becoming older — the cumulative benefit of your experiences always makes you wiser and wiser.
So what will the next decade have in store? Who knows….That is what is fun, and worth living!
P.S.: I’m going to attempt to add these old entries to my database. So if you subscribe to the RSS feed you may see a slew of new entries. I’ll be careful to set the date in the posts properly, but I’m unsure if they will appear in the RSS feed because they are “new” entries as far as the database is concerned…
1. Farah Fawcett.
2. Michael Jackson.
So I’m not gonna say much other than damn, what a crap day this turned out to be…
What man did not have this poster or image somewhere, straight or gay!?
2. THE Pop Star:
Really…the 80’s just died. (vid has music only, but I think one of my faves ever)
I know who is gonna comment — fire away! 😉 (slight inside joke)
