Back to life

July 8, 2013

2013Vaca 057Well, the week off is over and with it my trip back east for the 4th of July.

I was a bit more of a shutterbug this year, although I am increasingly aware of the practical limitations of the camera when compared to everyone else’s smartphones. I may have to give in and get one of those myself, although it’s not as if I take a lot of pictures any other time. Then again, with a more portable camera maybe I would.

Anyway, this one above is my favorite, although there are some nice ones in the bunch. The link will go to a slideshow of my vacation pics on Photobucket. There’s also a few from last year in my library there, too. So it was a nice week, and I’m not particularly looking forward to getting back to normal work-life tomorrow, but that’s life.

Freedom!

June 6, 2013

Ok, so the big spring job should be done now, so perhaps I’ll have some time to write a bit again. Don’t know yet…can’t be sure that they finished things up yesterday at work. In the meantime, I found this photo on a tumblr today and it amused me. Granted it was part of the Moon Moon silliness but huskies are just goofy. They don’t need an excuse.

Photos and updates

May 13, 2013

Been awhile since I posted anything new up here. Sorry, but sometimes real life takes precedence, and in this case work’s been real busy. Draining. Anyway…

Personal 006Although it may be difficult to tell, this is a picture of Mudbug visiting the house again. He’s sort of peeking out. I don’t know quite why he did this, but he seems to really like the blankies on the futon/couch…

Personal 005…and since the blankets were piled on top of the couch, he climbed up there and half-buried himself in them and snoozed. My neighbor’s cat really wants to be a housecat, I think. But they keep tossing him outside (probably because he’s bad) and so he wants to hang out with us.

Personal 003Such shiftless bums cats are. So, I don’t need a pet. Not that I want one, but instead I have visitors. I also spotted him outside hunting a lizard for fun, but he wasn’t interested in this one…

Personal 007Found this indifferent fellow on the back porch today, perhaps warming himself on the concrete, or perhaps snacking on the nearby ants. I don’t mind the lizards eating bugs before they get in the house. I only mind when they break in, and occasionally they do sneak inside. But this one wasn’t concerned with me or Mudbug, and the cat didn’t go after him, so…maybe the last one tasted bad.

Anyway, still out here doing…nothing much, but hopefully in a few weeks I’ll get a slight break from the work madness. Till then, I must instead embrace the madness.

Sad day for a fan

April 14, 2013

I was playing some Deftones this evening when I found this news, that the Deftones’ former bassist Chi Cheng died this morning.

After a car accident in Santa Clara, CA back in 2008, Chi suffered major injuries. He was not wearing a seat belt and was ejected from the vehicle. This accident left Cheng in a coma.

In 2010, the musician showed improvement, responding to commands and moving his legs. After showing more signs of rehabilitation, he was moved to his home for recovery.

Cheng died last night at 3am in the hospital.

I have followed his story for some time now, on the site they built for the purpose. It’s a shame to hear of his sudden death, no real information as to why it happened. Sometimes people will write a little R.I.P. diary on Daily Kos, but I think I won’t this time…it’s late, and maybe not the right place for it anyway.

Well, his music survives, and continues to entertain, to make people happy…could do worse, in this life, than making folks happy.

I know, it’s late

April 14, 2013

…but I found this in some late-night internet wandering and I wanted to share it with my pals playing the Werewolf chronicle with me.

werewolf-nameMY NAME, IS FRICKIN MOON MOON. I’D BE THE MOST RETARDED WOLF. ‘OH SHIT WHO BROUGHT FUCKING MOON MOON ALONG?’

Now I want to introduce some new characters just to poke some fun at this name list.  🙂  Ah well, too easily amused.

Winding down

March 25, 2013

Still posting a bit at Daily Kos, although lately I have been too busy to spare a few minutes to copy it over here. May be like that for a few months, even; work is getting busy indeed. Not a bad thing, really, just less spare time is all. I expect my frenzied posting on gun control at DK will have to wind down some, too. It’s just going to be that kind of spring.

I did find this though, in my internet wandering. It’s not what it seems…

Got some catching up to do

March 14, 2013

Although I am still writing pretty regularly on Daily Kos, things are getting busy here and I have less time to spare. Plus, it’s only going to get worse for the next few months. Yay! Well, busy from work is good at least. So, I intend to catch up on my republishing the DK diaries here when time permits.

As for Daily Kos, I’ll keep posting up on weekdays until things get so busy that I can’t even do that as much, which is liable to happen by next month. Shouldn’t feel too bad about it, it’s just my small part to keep the issue of gun control alive and in conversation; even if it’s mainly a counterattack against trolling gun enthusiasts.
