Good Rover

Jan. 29th, 2010 | 09:02 am

Check out today's XKCD: http://xkcd.com/695/

Spirit lasted far longer then its mission. Good rover.

ETA:  This is apparently far sadder then the sweet if poingant that I read.  These should help with cheering up about Spirit.
There is a really good article about this on http://cosmiclog.msnbc.msn.com/archive/2010/01/26/2185463.aspx
Plus Spirit seems pretty happy on 'her' twitter. http://twitter.com/marsrovers

Fic: Porch swings

Sep. 30th, 2009 | 12:30 pm

Title: Porch swings
Disclaimer: They ain't mine

Written on a lazy summer day, just pretending the tv cut out 30 min before the end.  Total fluff.

Fic, 311 wordsCollapse )

G20 ... the chaos that... is where?

Sep. 25th, 2009 | 07:39 am

So they were predicting say 10-15 thousand protesters (most of them being violent), we've got 4000 cops and such and per the radio around 1000 protesters (peaceful or otherwise) There was a march in from Lawrenceville that was small (I'm hearing 50-100 people) that had some anarchists get a little ugly (a couple dumpsters turned over and a brick in a Boston Market window)... but really by the sound of it Oakland was more of a mess since a car actually got flipped in addition to a few people burning their couches.
Things are good. It's too bad that there has been so much fear that so many businesses shut down. Thanks media outlets!

Personal upside: I get to sleep in and work from home. :)

ETA Oakland was more of a mess after we won the superbowl in the spring I meant.

So Romo, accent personality and all, is on the warehouse 13 episode I'm watching. Daybreak was a fakeout; everyone is fine :)

Buffy, the comic book

Sep. 12th, 2009 | 11:15 am

Ok, So I've been reading Buffy Season 8 (yes a comic book.  Yes it is really good.) for a while now.  I blame this firmly on my college roomie Kristen *waves* who got me to watch Buffy ummmm wow 8 years ago... ok now I feel old.  While I did not get quite as wrapped up in those characters as I have in others I really enjoyed the show.  A while back I saw Buffy standing with The Scythe on the cover of a comic at my FLCBS and added it to my regular fix.
It has been good.  It has been fun.  It has been Joss-ish which means funny&touching&sad at times.  I'm not quite sure about the current arc though, but I'm still trusting Joss.  Even with what happened in that movie.  (if you saw the movie you know of what I speak)
spoilers for current arc, if you haven"t read itCollapse )

Know what's awesome?

mood: happyhappy

Rummaging around in my book shelves and finding something I haven't read in seven years, recalling only the barest shreds of the book so that it is almost like new. (except knowing it must have been enjoyable since it survived two moves and at least as many book-culls.

Tee Hee :)

I went to a fundraiser dress-up/dance type thing tonight and at first had a mix of a ok/highly lonely time. They had the volume on really high for a while and I have sharp ears. When They got to the dance part I went out on the little dance floor by myself in the crowd and was kinda doing my own thing. And then this guy came over and asked to dance with me, and we danced a bunch and had a good time (he is a much better dancer), and when I was done in he asked to give me his cell phone number and if we could do lunch some time. :) Yes, he was most definitely asking me out.
Tee Hee :)
