I am Jack's Horoscope

Ok... How is this different from any OTHER day for me?

An opportunity for an epiphany is in the offing. So rather than concern yourself with the trivialities of day-to-day existence, perhaps you need to take a step back and ask yourself questions about the mysteries of the universe and life beyond the five senses. While you may not get any satisfactory answers -- at least not right away -- you will be preparing your soul to receive new light. Even though others may not notice the change right away, there will be a profound difference.

Thursday Night

Went out with Pete and his wife, to Denny's, where we encountered a group of drunk people, ate, and chatted.

There may soon be little Petelings running around. This is a great nightmare to me, since, well, ANY of my clan spawning is scary, because those will be fucked up kids.

They tried to set me up with a girl. "You should meet Abby." "I've met Abby. Few years ago. Nice kid." She's...19 or 20 right now, if I'm remembering correctly. I see this light go on in Pete's eyes. "They would be good for each other." The light goes out of my eyes, they go cold, and stare. "I shall now remind you of the girl in Texas I'm stalking..."

That was the end of that.

Luckilly, because Abby, whilst being nice, smart, funny, and IIRC, a redhead, she's a tad young, and Mormon.

Now, I'm all for Mormons, a lot of 'em are real nice people. But from what I've seen, they seem to like to convert their significant others to their religion, and that SO goes against everything I...well, everything I believe in. It's not so much being stubborn, but being against conversion.

That, and caffeine is a Mormon no no.

Me. No caffeine. Apocalypse nigh =)

*thinks*

That was pretty much the brunt of discussion. That, and describing Beth to them, which is something I've always sucked at. "She's uh...into like...comics, an' stuff." I *know* the details, just stink at disseminating them to others. Got 'em off my back though with enough snippets I could dredge up.

Still wanna meet Abby when she gets back in a few weeks, she was a good friend.

A Quote

Words we speak weave the magic... Nations rise and fall on our words and no
revolution was ever won without them. We need a revolution on the mind to have a
revolution of the sword or the gun. We fight first with our words... With our
words we shal win. - C. E. Burgress

Upcoming Farscape

Just skimmed the Scifi Channel website, and am mulling over the episode titles through July...

Green Eyed Monster
Losing Time
Relativity
Incubator
Meltdown
Scracth & Sniff
Infinite Possibilities Part 1

Note, Meltdown airs Saturday the 14th of July, as well as Incubator on Friday. For some reason, I'm sensing scary time travel stuff. Or another possibility I have running around in my head...

Aborted Survey

The Seven Things survey running around... I've looked at it, and just can't either be that open, or just can't think of seven things to add... Maybe I'll mull it over for a bit, see what happens.

2. How people can judge something without having seen it. Usually a comicbook in this example...
3. Why people can't let others live their own lives, as long as they bring no harm to others.
4. Why can't we require people to take classes before they come online?
5. The popularity of the Matrix.
6. Why people masquerade as the opposite sex onli...er, nevermind.

Seven facts about myself:
1. I am a guy, really.
2. I was born legally blind, and with a hare lip/cleft pallete.
3. My mother died in childbirth, and my father gave me over to the care of my aunt and uncle, who informed me of this less than a month before my 18th birthday.
4. I believe that there are things in this world that have yet to be explained by science, and I make it my hobby to discover them.
5. I am a pagan, following a mixture of druid, wiccan, and shamanistic beliefs, along with my own beliefs on reality behind those.
6. I am incredibly patient.
7. And manipulative. In a good way.

Seven things I'd like to do before I die:
1. Publish one book, and sell one copy. At least.
2. Make a difference.
3. Get a date.
4. Actually post rules/fix/solve/whatever #Subcafe.
5. Aquire all the Legion of Superheroes comics, all the way back to Adventure Comics 247.
6. Return to Emma, Missouri and burn the place to the ground.
7. Someday, post my Rachel/Askani fic somewhere.

Yay! I finally finished! You may have learned something, but won't be able to make sense of it.

Oh Yeah!

How could I forget...

My relatives called yesterday, at 3. I heard the phone ringing, and knew it was them calling to say they were on their way.

"We're about an hour away!" Hey, here's an idea? Why not call BEFORE YOU LEAVE? Since we're, y'know, going out, because we made plans, since no one was coming up this weekend.

So, we do our stuff in Rutland, have dinner... Get back, and they're not here (Rejoice), and they left a message saying they decided to stay at a hotel.

So, my recording wasn't interupted, or I had to plan around them trying to sleep, which is good...

Anyways, wake up today to find out they checked out of the hotel at 11, and left. This begs the question... What was the point of coming up, getting here around...4, 4:30, and leaving about 18 hours later, a large chunk of which, you slept during?

They were coming up, to do some stuff with the house, but I guess they changed their minds. Or we annoyed them. Or something came up back home.

Just something interesting (And moderatly stupid) thing to write down for posterity...
