  • Those who are diagnosed paranoid-schizophrenic often feel they are being followed by black helicopters. I was followed by a hot-air balloon Friday, and must admit, its rather disconcerting.


  • Docushare is retarded because its tree-view is a lie. You cannot traverse directories in both directions. That's just stupid.


  • I was driving 90mph down the interstate when a motorcycle pulls in front of me and matches speed. The rider stands up on his foot pegs. I scream at my boy in the back seat, "Watch this, he's going to do a wheelie." My boy has been wanting to see a motorcycle ride a wheelie in real life for a very long time. Sure enough, the rider pulls his bike in the air. A wheelie at 90 miles an hour. Sweet.


  • I don't have time to work on any projects I want to work on.


  • galinda822 is coming for a visit at the end of November


  • I love my Ultra10 workstation. Thank you ubuntu for breathing new life into it.


  • My boy has joined the Cub Scouts. I'm going to be one of those fathers who's at EVERY. SINGLE. EVENT. I'm not ready to turn him loose just yet.


  • Work has been keeping me extremely busy. Busier than usual.


  • Thanks to schpydurx for the DaVinci cigars. He provided two for drax0r, two for celtmanx and one each for my wife and I. How very generous. They looked delicious. I'll likely read the thriller - is the Nazi novel for celtmanx? Thanks again.


  • Speaking of cigars, the Montecristo's David got me for my birthday were supurb. I shared some at a neighborhood party with people who enjoy a good cigar. They were quite impressed, as was drax0r, who attended as well.


  • I was at the house a couple of weeks ago and had just pulled my can of Grizzly from my pocket. My boy says, "When I grow up, I'm going to try all the flavors of Scooby-Snack!" I threw the can away and haven't had any since.


  • My iPod ran out of juice yesterday and I forgot to recharge it. I brought a USB card into work today to put in my Ultra10 workstation to see if I can get it to work. If so, I'm giong to buy another dock, one to keep at work with me. In place of the iPod, I'm listening to Psy-Goa Trance on Digitally Imported today and it's working as if I'd shotgun'd a Monster brand drink.


    drax0r 'Shotguns' a Monster-brand drink.

Whenever I am with my boy and I see a man about to pull a wheelie at 90 mph I always yell "LOOK SON, A FUTURE ROAD PIZZA!"

That's what my father told the boy when he relayed the story to him: "You know what you call him? CORPSE!"

And don't you think Older was a brilliant follow-up? I don't think he'll ever top those two.

I haven't had a cigar since you left. Maybe we'll get a chance to have one while I'm visiting?

Glad to hear you gave up scooby - again! I'm still trying to give up the smokes. Not very successfully though. :(

I'm lovin' my iPod! It has come in very handy several times.

You can count on it!

This time I have the motivation for follow-through.

I'm lovin' my iPod!
Without it, I would be lost.

A DaVinci cigar?

Do you know I did not realize until now that a Scooby Snack (in Eric's world) is something other than an actual food-type snack?

My brain sometimes, I swear.

I picked that up from a buddy of mine, a Marine who came temporary duty to Korea when I was there - LONG STORY I hope to someday tell on here; he called it 'Scooby Snack' because of its size and shape.

Believe me, you're not the only one. And that goes both ways - at a conference in Fort Worth last year, I'd announce to these two ladies I was working with, that I needed to sneak out for a Scooby-Snack, as we were working 16-hour days and they were hard to come by. Well, one girl picked up real quick on what I was talking about. It took me however a couple of days to realize that everytime I said that, the other girl would bring me a little plate of food from the conference buffet table!

I didn't think about teh wife smoking with you or else there would have been two more cigars. If only photogoot were there to capture the event!

Both books were intended for celtmanx; however as you are in possession and he is not, feel free. The only thing I ask is that you provide us with a review upon completion (in all your spare time).

I have thoroughly enjoyed both books and recently (as in a couple of months ago, you may recall my incessant ravings about this) re-read The Twilight of Courage. I may have to re-read A Small Death is Lisbon despite already knowing what happens. There were several passages in that book that made my heart race. I think that if you like the one, you will like the other.

Let me ask you a question about the cover of A Small Death in Lisbon: Do you see a red brick wall with windows or a swastika?

You could have plugged it into drax0r after he shotgunned the Monster drink.

"I'm not shooting anyone."

It's always good to see that you are never in short supply of comments. You, my friend, are a special person that many people flock to and listen closely to what you have to say.

I admit - I am one of them... and I never get tired of your posts.

I tried a red can of Monster this morning (Assault). Icky was the first thought and it didn't do a damn thing to give me any pep.

So far, it seems like the Green Monster is the best at getting the brain activity neurons to start firing away and giving the body a boost of badly needed energy. I just wish I could enjoy the flavor.

I still have yet to try the Blue "Lo-Carb." Maybe it has the taste I'm looking for and carries along with it the same energizing effect as the Green. As with the others that I've tried - I'm not impressed with their flavor or their ability to get my skein of axons and neurons all jazzed up to give me the pep needed to get through class with the focus needed to get the lectures truly embedded in my brain and long term memory. So, my next purchase will be the Blue, and I hope it has the effect that I need.

I will keep you posted.

In the meantime... Viva Eric! Viva Eric! Viva Eric!

galinda822 is coming for a visit in November!?! That's wicked cool! Maybe I will actually get to meet both of you in person.

Question: In the above picture of drax0r lovingly kissing the bottom of a can of Monster, is that the Race Track gas station at the corner of 75 and 380 in the background? Cyn and I were in that area last weekend.

galinda822 is indeed coming for a visit in November. I suggest we throw a party. You, me, drax0r, celtmanx, catttitude and jesskd26. I would love to have crowy there as well, but I heard she fell off a cliff and died on impact.

You would have made a great Photographic Interpreter. That is indeed the Racetrack at the corner of 75 & 380. And he's not lovingly kissing the can. He stabbed the bottom of it with his knife, it sprayed him in the face, he reached up and cracked the tab while bringing the hole to his lips, and it shot 16oz of Monster down his throat.

I had to help him to the car after that. But then he followed-up with a 24oz Monster and all was well for the rest of the day.
