4:40am: I do enjoy the irony...
...that the people who I discuss in my random posts generally aren't reading me, and those who are reading me are sure I'm not talking about them.

The converse is also true: if you're worried it's about you--like the button idea I posted last month--it's almost certainly not about you.
Current Mood: grinning
6:14am: Of course, I was just reminded of an exception to my previous post...
...but it was so rare that I was quite astonished. Then again, novawolf is exceptionally gifted, so I can't see that feat being repeated often.

In fact, I had actually written "Miss you," followed by her name. At the last moment, I thought it'd be better not to name names, and I edited it out.
4:06pm: A Roman Glass Gaming Die
Thanks to JP, on a private mailing list:


4:56pm: 1.5 meter stereo cable: $500.
Thanks to st_rev.

From Amazon's customer reviews:

"The first time I downloaded a picture to the printer over this cable, the bits moved so fast the printer collapsed into a naked singularity, right there in my office."

"This cable made my David Hasselhoff CD sound like William Shatner! My only disappointment was in having too much of a good thing."

"What I found most impressive is that this cable actually turned my binary digital audio devices into TRINARY digital audio devices. All the people saying that it's just 1's and 0's don't understand how revolutionary this cable is. IT UPSCALES YOUR DIGITAL SPECTRUM TO ALLOW FOR 2's!!!"

"I made the mistake of taunting the AKDL1.

I am a battered shell of a man."

The user tags are also funny.
5:19pm: Hitching across Britain.
From http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/this-britain/the-hitcher-simon-usborne-takes-to-the-road-847716.html:

"My mission, one I'm beginning to regret accepting, is this: in today's Britain, in an age when a coach ticket can cost less than a piece of cardboard and a marker pen – and when the fear of violent stranger crime is high – is it still possible to traverse the length of the country with only a backpack, a sign and an extended thumb?"

All I can say is that it got much more difficult to do this in the States long, long ago. At least for me. Hitchhikers in America were an endangered species decades back.
9:48pm: Vicodin.
I wouldn't drive on this stuff, but it's not like it really puts me out, either. I do feel like I've lost some sensation from the periphery of my body. Also, there's some dissociation going on, I think. (Definitely wouldn't drive on it. :) )

It does seem to work in relieving the throbbing from the implant. (The pain from the implant has been a bit more persistent than most of the other dental work I've had lately.) I mean, I can't feel it at all, although some of that seems to be the 800mg of ibuprofen I'm being prescribed at the same time.

Overall, this is good, because the throbbing was keeping me from sleeping.
