daecabhir: (WTF??)

I just had one of those moments where I notice something for the first time, and I feel incredibly dense. Embarrassingly dense. Deplete uranium dense.

So I'm checking out the furniture in the bedroom of my current digs, looking for a good candidate drawer to take with me today to put up against the wall in the bedroom of my new digs to make sure the colors don't totally clash.

And then I notice it. I've only had this furniture in my possession for 21+ years. Walked past it every day that I have woken up in my bedroom during those past 21+ years. Multiple times a day.

The chest of drawers is from a completely different set of furniture than the dresser and nightstands.

Although the colors are in the same general spectrum (vintage 1960's bland), they are completely and totally different. Different colors, different style and color of knobs / grips, different texture veneers, different design (straight vs. curved).

FFS, I knew I was unobservant, but OMFG.

Tonight's pet peeve: rude motherf_ckers. You know who you are, or perhaps (which would explain alot) you don't. Perhaps you're too ignorant to recognize just how rude you are... so here are some hints:

  • If you are too lazy to take your grocery cart to a corral or back to the front of the store, leaving it in the middle of a parking lot for someone else to put away, you're a rude motherf_cker. I don't want to hear any BS about being in a hurry or having to deal with rug rats. Put the shopping cart away when you are done with it, you douchebag.

  • If you try to step into the elevator from the hallway before the doors are all the way open, and don't even bother to say "excuse me" when you almost walk into the people trying to get out of the elevator - you guessed it: you're a rude motherf_cker. Especially you repeat offenders who can't seem to learn no matter how many dirty looks you get. Assholes.

  • if you are riding my ass while I am in the rightmost of three lanes of traffic while I am doing the speed limit and there are two other clear lanes in which you could pass me, which you finally do after looking all pissed off that I didn't get out of your way, not only are you a rude motherf_cker, you're a lobotomized retard whose parents obviously were more closely related than second cousins.

  • If you have used a toilet in the public restroom and you don't even bother to look at the sink much less make a token attempt at washing your hands, you are the rudest of motherf_ckers. No excuses are remotely viable for this bahvior - it is unsanitary, and shows a complete and utter lack of couth. If I encounter you in a social setting that involves shaking hands or eating food, everyone will know that you are "that guy" - the one who doesn't wash his hands.

Thanks for listening - I had to get that off my chest.

Composed earlier to fill up the empty spot on my twitwall. Posted here so non-Twitter followers can see.

Here I sit in my chair
Staring at the empty canvas of a text box
My fingers dance awkwardly
Words form spontaneously and are erased
This is my nightly ritual
Hours sacrificed on the altar of productivity
Forgotten, food goes cold
I drink only when I remember that I am parched
Eyes glazed over and backside numb
Another night turns into morning
And yet I have the audacity to be suprised?

daecabhir: (Zonked)

So, I called out of work yesterday, because I was falling asleep at traffic lights. True story. Hadn't had a decent night's sleep in three days, in spite of taking my sleep meds. Can you say S-T-R-E-S-S?

Even as exhausted as I was, I still had to take sleep meds to get to sleep during the day - took a half dose so I wouldn't sleep until like 10 PM and then be up all night. Thunder storm woke me up about 4 hours later, and I groggily passed the rest of the day at the computer, doing nothing else but getting a load of dishes on. Eventually I throw in the towel, take some sleep meds, and head for bed.

The rest of the night is spent in one hour increments, waking up and wondering WTF is going on. I have weird dreams - lots of them. Which is passing strange because if I do dream I almost never remember that I dreamed - does that make sense? But the dreams were weird, involving the meditation center, my meditation instructor, me walking around in my underwear at one point, and ending up in a tunnel / sewer some place with writing in blood (I'm assuming that's why it was red) appearing on the wall of the tunnel and disappearing as we attempted to read it by lighter / matches. I mean it was just plain not the usual kind of thing my brain chews on, or at least chews on and shares with me.

And no, I did not read any of J.C. Hutchins' "Personal Effects: Dark Art" yesterday in spite of it arriving shortly after I was awakened by the thunder storm. This was my own messed up psyche playing games with me. Why, I have no idea, but it is damned inconvenient.

I believe that Mur Lafferty's "trimuvirate of uns" Tweet says it all: unexpected, unpleasant, unhappy. I got an unexpected and unpleasant surprise today, and boy did it make me unhappy. Yes, this is grist for the practice mill, but I had my moments of pure irritation before I got down to dealing with things in a nice, sane manner.

Cut to save the uninterested from excessive bitching and moaning, and a long post about plumbing... )

And so I am having a beer to celebrate. There are other things to be done around here tonight, but for the moment I am having a beer. Moorhouse's Blond Bitch to be exact, which I suspect is an export version of their Blond Witch, or perhaps a label mis-print. It is a light-bodied blond ale that is tasty, and would be very appropriate on a hot day. Nummers!

Other than that, how was the play Mrs. Lincoln?

daecabhir: (Hamster Cup)

Actually, I was going to be in up-state New York, at a weekend on tonglen led by Pema Chodron. But life does not go according to plan, or at least mine does not. )

I was sitting on the deck a little earlier, a cigar in one hand and a snifter of 17 year old Old Pulteney, pondering the darkness of the back yard. I realized a while back that this house is no longer home, hasn't been for quite a while. Sitting on the deck I mused on how rare it was that I actually did sit out on the deck. Perhaps I'm a little more at ease with being alone with myself, or perhaps the two beers I had prior to going out onto the deck allowed me to be a little more at ease with being alone myself. Kind of like the question of "How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop?" The world may never know...

One thought that did come to mind sitting on the deck was that not so long ago I was sitting in a chair in the atrium / open space at the Hunt Valley Marriott at some rediculous hour of the morning, just hanging out with various podcasters and other creative types. Cigars had materialized, conversations had happened, and connections were made. As much as the technology had brought us together, it was the human element that kept us up to all hours, until the sky started to lighten once again. No matter what, there is that need, that desire to interact person to person, that Twitter, Livejournal, podcasts and other methods of communication cannot ever truly replace. Otherwise the podcasting panels and events at Balticon would not have been so packed... these electronic transmission vectors help fill the time between face to face encounters, help us stay in touch until we can share each other's company.

No, I'm not talking about folks who have it in for my all time favorite hardware from DEC, but folks who insist on spreading FUD about the dangers of vaccination for diseases we once thought banished through medical science. This is really a heart breaking story, but please take the time to check it out. I don't have an issue with homeopathy or alternative medicine per se, but this is the sort of stuff of which broad opinions that equate homeopathy with nut jobs are made.

Go check out the poppetses, the foppetses, the braaaaains and other manifestations from the imagination of Lisa and her friends. Take your PayPal account with you, and buy early and often - but keep yer grubby mitts off the Poppet Train, mmmmkay??

Personal Effects: Dark ArtJ. C. Hutchins' 7th Son trilogy positively rocked my socks off from beginning to end. While we eagerly await the print release of "Descent", the first novel in the 7th Son trilogy, J.C. has teamed up with Jordan Weisman to produce "Personal Effects: Dark Art", combining the taut narrative style of a J.C. Hutchins thriller with an alternative reality game that promises to continue to blur the lines between traditional print media and digital online media. J. C. Hutchins did it masterfully with 7th Son, and like any skilled artist who dedicates himself to his art, he gets even better every single time.

Listen to the promo. Read the details. And commit yourself to The Brink.

Poppets are cute, and maybe a little creepy. And now you can check out what we know about Poppets for a "closer look" at these intriguing little beings.

So over on Facebook, I've been re-connecting with various folks from my "bright high school" days at Eleanor Roosevelt State PenitentiarySenior High. One of my most recent re-connections was with Mike Litterst, who was the principal catalyst behind the formation of the National Mediocre Society during our junior year*. His greeting message to me was as follows:

J. Greg - what up!? Are you still mediocre? My son tried to revive the National Mediocre Society at his high school, but they weren't nearly as tolerant as ERHS.

And I am struck by the Muse of the Perverse, which typically happens when I am not particularly engaged in a specific activity, in conjunction with encountering some random bit of information that I find oddly amusing, aggravating or interesting. And lo', thus spake the Muse:

Dude, I am beyond mediocre. We are talking inherently beige, almost but not quite completely flavorless, and smooth to the verge of being featureless. My mediocrity has reached a level that is transcendental, surpassing all other manifestations of mediocrity, blinding in its baleful florescent glow.

Or perhaps I exaggerate. It is so hard to separate reality from surreality these days.

Pity that your son's high school manifests the same lack of humor that seems to pervade the public school systems these days. Imagine starting a snowball battle in a high school today - the SWAT teams would be called in, the crisis intervention therapists would descend, and parents would be suing the school and the families of those who threw snowballs for causing lifelong trauma to their destined for burger flipping child.

The world is going to Hell. No handbasket, no passing GO, no collecting $200. Just straight to Hell. Or Hoboken, whichever's closest.

And how are _you_?

I'm telling you right now, if I had tried to make that stuff up intentionally, I'd have hit a dry spell the size of the Sahara. Spontaneous inspiration, without the lubrication of alcholic spirits or the catalyst of mind expanding substances.

*So there were a number of arrogant pricks of both gender in the National Honor Society, who took particular pleasure in looking down their noses at those people who were not "in". The National Mediocre Society was our response, in effect claiming solidarity in our lack of desire to be overachievers. It should be noted that we were all students in the Science and Technology program at ERSH, so none of us were particulary "mediocre", but rather some of us were particularly unmotivated and rather fed up with the arrogant attitude. I dare say the National Mediocre Society had more fun than the National Honor Society, especially given Mr. Litterst's infamous "Special Olympics" morning announcement and Fred "Purple" Hayes' even more infamous "Happiness Is Not A Warm Puppy" speech at our first National Mediocre Society abduction ceremony.

So, you've probably seen a renewed online presence from me, in the form of my daily Twitter re-cap via LoudTwitter. Micro-blogging is easier for me than sitting down at the keyboard and composing anything of substance these days, but it is less than adequate for communicating the details within the context of the big picture. If you've been reading my Twitter stream, you'll have noticed a thread about a significant change I've made semi-coincidentally with the calendar year, to which the subject of this post points...

On going 'cold tofu'... )

Periodic updates on this topic to follow...

daecabhir: (Default)
[Error: unknown template qotd]
  • Went to bed after midnight, at home, alone, and not in the best of head spaces
  • Hit the snooze bar several times, because I had unrealistic expectations for the day
  • After breakfast, succumbed to urge to lay back down for another hour
  • Screwed off the rest of the day, still not in the best of head spaces
  • Got my act together and headed to Baltimore for Ikebana lesson and arranging flowers for the center
  • Had Ikebana lesson, arranged flowers for reception area and helped teacher with arrangements for shrine room, then cleaned up the mess generated by arranging flowers
  • Chatted with dharma brothers David and Peter, and dharma sisters Cynthia and Melanie
  • Came home, fighting the drowsies, took sleep meds, read e-mail, read some more of Scott Sigler's CONTAGIOUS, and went to bed without setting an alarm, perhaps in a better head space than the start of the day

Looks like 2009 will not be that much different from 2008, if one believes such things.

daecabhir: (Ain't Afraid)

What I am looking for includes accurate / verifiable information on the following:

  • Historical timelines for the creation of the state of Israel, and the progression of this conflict since that time.
  • History of the region where Israel now exists, including which countries formerly existed in that geographiocal location.
  • History of the Palestinian people - where they came from, the composition of their culture and heritage with regards to nationality and religion, and how they have been viewed by fellow Arabs before the creation of Israek as well as afterwards.
  • History of the creation of the state of Israel - motivations, reactions, process by which it came to be, support or lack of support for its legitimacy.
  • History of the the conflict itself, including peace initiatives, major acts of hostility on either side, the roles of Hamas, Fatah, Hezbollah, and the various Israeli groups whose names evade me.

I am not looking for opinion pieces - I am looking for concrete information about the chain of events that has ultimately led to the current situation in the Middle East. I've come to the conclusion that I am woefully ignorant about this extremely volatile situation, and I don't know where to begin to look for reliable sources of information. I will be screening comments on the off chance that someone sees this as an opportunity to vent their spleen about either Israel or the Palestinians, since that is not what this request is about.

  • 17:41 Coffee administered. Work can now continue. #
  • 17:42 The problem with "to do" lists is that the rate of completion always seems to be slower than the rate of addition... #
  • 17:44 @12stepbuddhist 'twas my understanding of the slogan... form is emptiness, emptiness also is form... #
  • 17:51 I am so not here... I mean, like totally not here... #
  • 18:07 @12stepbuddhist Good point. In their own way, each is pointing to the same thing... for some reason, we like "complicated" over "simple"... #
  • 18:08 @casuist Aroo? You mean my comment on "to do" lists? If so, yes, very much to do with entropy! #
  • 18:09 Going through the last refinements on an application or module is always draining... so much nit-picking, double checking, etc. #
  • 19:21 @12stepbuddhist I'm not disagreeing, but I'm not sure that "unreal" is quite the term I would use either. #
  • 19:23 @12stepbuddhist The difficulty seems to be in discussing what is purely experiential without conceptualizing. At least, it is for me. :) #
  • 19:56 @12stepbuddhist that's one interpretation / translation of how the Buddha put it... #
  • 19:58 @12stepbuddhist I've also heard "as dreams" interpreted as "being dream-like" or "as non-existent as dreams". #
  • 20:00 @12stepbuddhist But yes - living in the relative world as we do we require a relative means to point to the absolute. #
  • 20:03 @Gutshot yes, you (and everyone else) needs to start thinking about Balticon! #
  • 20:49 I have once again proved myself right - the "to do" list for the current work project is longer, with 3 items completed today. #
  • 20:50 @ravyn yes, but I am getting ready to pack up and head out... you want me to call from the road? #
  • 20:54 @cyberpaladin I post pictures of flower arrangements, and now you want to have a beer? Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?? :) #
  • 20:59 Heading for home... two more long days this week *sigh* #
  • 22:43 Home, heading for bed soon. Long day tomorrow, as I try to work 32 hours in three days so I can not go into the office on January 2. #
  • 23:01 @jchutchins and arriving on a ton of doorsteps as well! #
  • 00:14 @jchutchins Yes, isn't it? One could even say that the excitement about @scottsigler's new novel is CONTAGIOUS, non? #
  • 00:14 @Cynical_Woman I am happy for you... I had to make do with just milk and sugar in mine, which was decidedly better than no coffee at all! #
  • 00:17 Remember folks, when you're out and about tomorrow, buy a copy of CONTAGIOUS - if not for yourself, at least "Do it for the Sigler!" #
  • 00:18 And on that pimping note, I am really, truly, heading for bed. Damned intarwebz, dey eetz mah braiiiiiins.... #

  • 17:23 Bugger. Out of milk. Don't want to leave house. Decisions. I shall contemplate whilst I sort clothes for laundry. #
  • 18:00 @spiritualtramp Bold man... your wife isn't on Twitter, is she? #
  • 18:02 @systris am considering other options, like asking @ravyn to pick some up for me if she comes by this evening... #
  • 18:02 OK, who snuck Kryptonite into the house, and where did you hide it? All of a sudden I am running outta steam... #
  • 18:06 @j0ni DDR and wine in the same sentence? Danger sense is tingling... #
  • 18:08 @spiritualtramp Didn't think so... there's foolish, and then there's damn foolish... #
  • 18:27 @j0ni LAWL #
  • 18:27 @spiritualtramp yer in good company lad, yer in good company... #
  • 18:28 Still haven't found the Kryptonite. Wondering if someone snuck into my stuff on Christmas day.. #
  • 18:33 @allura1993 bad, wicked, evil Zoot! #
  • 18:34 @nomad_scry is that why I've been feeling sleepy? #
  • 18:38 @pfischer I may actually try a surgical application of electrical tape along the edge that slides, to get a little resistance. #
  • 18:39 @pfischer for the record, taken out of context your last reply would be construed as suggestive and possibly dirty... #
  • 19:14 @pfischer Oh I thrill... to any book like "Fannie Hill"... and I suppose I alway will... if it is swill, and really fil-thy! #
  • 19:33 Emergency cookie rations opened... now I _must_ go to the grocery store for milk, dammit. #
  • 19:36 And I will get some ice cream too. Dammit. #
  • 20:08 @MistressJett you do realize what you are opening yourself up to with this crowd? #
  • 20:09 Back with milk and ICE CREAM!!! Going to get my ice cream fix... #
  • 20:10 @sinspired @bikerbar Bodhran! #
  • 20:14 Dear Breyer's - If it contains corn syrup, please do not label the ice cream as "All Natural". Kthxbai. #
  • 20:14 @allura1993 Frederick, silly. And no, you get no more specific targeting information than that young lady... #
  • 20:16 @MistressJett my suggestion would prolly end with "I think so Brain, but where are we going to find a duck and a garden hose at this hour?" #
  • 20:18 As I sit here looking at Twitter, I can't help but think I've seen this movie before. Bitnet Relay, 1984. #
  • 20:22 OK, now I _know_ I've hit the big time... thanks for following @jchutchins! (Beta Clone #202 reporting for duty, sir!) #
  • 20:23 @evo_terra that proves nothing... we know what kind of technology you have at your disposal (and you're not afraid to use it) #
  • 20:30 @DailyBuddhism that sounds like the making of a balanced review right there... #
  • 20:31 @sinspired yah, just beginning to learn myself... have been tempted to get a djimbe, but can't justify the expense right now... #
  • 20:31 @sinspired I have a pair of congas, but they are a little large to lug out to the campfire... #
  • 20:38 @DailyBuddhism *chuckle* or full-on rants... it is the middle way that is difficult... wait, why does that sound familiar? #
  • 20:39 @sinspired amen sister, amen... #
  • 21:10 New Bitstrip - "Lost Cause": tinyurl.com/7jdaon #
  • 21:11 @allura1993 **engages cloaking device and deploys countermeasures** #
  • 21:16 @Kamikat it entertains me... and since I have no drawing skillz whatsoever, it suffices to feed my desire to do comics... #
  • 21:16 @Kamikat there is a cure for that... all children left over their time limit get an espresso and a free kitten... #
  • 21:17 @ravyn so, I shall not be seeing you this evening then? #
  • 21:20 @allura1993 Hah! You obviously fell for my decoy! #
  • 21:23 ReTwt @PodcastJunky: Put a face on it, a lot of faces: www.flickr.com/photos/couragecampaign/sets/72157611501972510/show/ #
  • 21:23 @Kamikat hmmmm.... spider monkey then? #
  • 21:43 @Kamikat I'm confused - the Prop 8 slide show, or the spider monkey? Yes, yes I am a jackass... thank you for noticing! #
  • 21:44 @MistressJett I thought the big gift from the b/f was there... just "under wraps" as it were... #
  • 21:46 What is it about Twitter that brings out the most tawdry, salacious, perverted side of me? #
  • 21:47 @MistressJett "No idea what you're talking about" <= My BS detector just buried its needle... I'm going to have to recalibrate now... #
  • 21:50 @Kamikat I know, I know... there's just this little impish side of me that is unable to resist the urge to be a smart ass... #
  • 21:52 On a more serious note, this looks interesting is.gd/dLVI but $20k? How many socially engaged Buddhists have $20k lying around? #
  • 21:56 Israel to Hamas: the bombings will continue until morale improves. Aggression begets aggression begets suffering. #
  • 22:01 @QueenofSpain **wipes tears from his eyes** thank you, I needed that... "it IS a SAT word" indeed... #
  • 22:02 Conversely, one 17 year old boy from Maryland shows that compassion and simple solutions can work is.gd/dLZ3 #
  • 22:04 @DailyBuddhism are you saying it is lovely but totally devoid of meaningful content? #
  • 22:45 Question for TweetDeck users: is there any way to increase the width of the columns or the size of the text? #
  • 22:46 @DailyBuddhism If there is no context, that kind of limits the usefulness of the book, non? #
  • 22:52 @scubaninja oh sure, go ahead and kiss @jchutchins ass... #
  • 22:55 @scubaninja I told you kids in classrooms are petri dishes waiting to blossom when they get home... #
  • 22:56 @Nycteris so, I have to ask... did you find it there before or after you used it? #
  • 23:00 @Nycteris I shall bite down on my tongue, as I seem to be channeling Puck tonight. My imagination really should not be let out on its own... #
  • 23:00 @Cmaaarrr I seem to recall reading that about you... can't remember if it was on Twitter or the wall above the urinal... #
  • 23:01 OK, this must stop. I'm going to take sleep meds and drag the merry prankster that is piloting my fingers away from the keyboard... #
  • 23:02 @Cmaaarrr Sorry, I didn't end that sentence properly. Bitch. #
  • 23:03 >>>>> CARRIER LOST <<<<< #
