10 Ravings or Rant & Rave
This morning, while brushing my teeth, I noticed something new on my face.

Thinking it was a trick of the light, I ignored it. But, it wasn't going away.

I put it out of my mind, I went off on the rest of my morning, the stretching, the run, the kata, etc.

Then, a shower, and shaving off the week or so of beard. It was still there. In fact, shaving had brought it to the fore. I leaned in close to get a good look at it in the mirror, scared as hell that it could actually be what it looked like. And yep. There it was, jutting off my chin at a jaunty angle, not seeming to care the pain that it was causing me.

My first grey hair.

Excuse me while I go and sob for my broken and lost youth.

So, the lovely xeyda has This here poll in which she asks her female friends (well, not explicitly, but it's well implied) about the vertical angle of their nipples.

To which her husband mentions that he's tempted to have an 'angle of your dangle' poll, but that guys just don't do that.

Well, anyone who even half knows me, knows that *I* have no damned shame, so...

Poll #1218631 What's the angle of your dangle?

George, you were funny. And pretty much epitomized the word 'irascible' for me. From you, I learned that one can say anything true, as long as people find it amusing.

From you, I also learned my favorite insult: "Fuck you. With a Broomstick."
Rant & Rave

6) I get to run shadowrun on saturday ("This is still a game about shooting people. Right in the face.")
7) I get to play in the new Star Wars game on Sunday. ("You can't kill innocent people." "Sure you can. It's easy, watch." *lightsaber noise* *screams of terror* "See?")

Rant & Rave
Dear Livejournal.

This week, I have (in no particular order):
Collected from about the house, crushed, bagged and taken in $22.35 worth of recycling.

Beaten Conan.

Read The Third Angel by Alice Hoffman, she of the perfect sentences. ("No, I told you a story. You can decide the rest")

Read The Painter of Battles by Aurturo Perez Reverte, he of the staggering imagery. (Oh, god. The cracks in the tower. So beautiful.)

Read Dust by matociquala, she of the genius.

Rewatched all of Criminal Minds, which is edging up on west wing as, IMO, the best written show. Ever. It has a lot of ground to cover, but it's getting there.

Created and scrapped four characters for a star wars RPG starting up sunday.

Walked or ran 75 miles.

Lifted 6 tons (in small pieces)

re-read SoS, in order, along with the annotations.

Written, and scrapped, three website designs for my aunt.

Built a Xen cluster for pay.

Cooked five loaves of bread (honey/oat, mostly)

Finally scoured the last of the burned chili off my big stock pot.

Made three gallons of vegetable broth.

Cooked 12 pounds of chicken (thighs and drumsticks) in a variety of sauces, attempting to determine which was better.

Made a variety of sauces, only two of which came out good enough to use more then once.

Hung out with heyfox on his pre-birthday outing to see Prince Caspian. (And slew a theater with a well timed quip)

Cleaned my kitchen four times.

Fixed an issue with my cable/cablemodem.

Slept a combined total of 26 hours.

Left to do:

Go to store to pick up final ingredients for potato salad for heyfox's birthday celebration today.

Make said potato salad.

Attend said celebration.

Get drunk.

Go to see A Midsummer Night's Dream at Standford tomorrow night.

Play the aforementioned Star Wars RPG on sunday.

Hopefully, sleep some.

Current Location: home, for now.
