Meta Noise.

My brain is full of meta noise and social bookmarking and and I'm beginning to think that we'll never make sense of all of this information and it'll all be meaningless to the world in general.

Also: unfindable.

I feel very small today.

My face hurts badly
my forehead, my teeth, my gums
damn you, sinuses

The Black Death.

Dooce pretty much sums up exactly how I feel about black licorice or anything remotely anise-related.

I'm gagging just thinking about it.

4 Gin and Tonics + 5 Hours of Sleep


Also: Pink's.

I think I gained 5 pounds overnight.

In addition, I will be spending all weekend doing homework. I'm glad I only have 2 classes - I'm having a hell of a time keeping up with them.

No, Really.


Because I parked in it this morning and now it's on the rugs of my NEW CAR.


A pox on you.

This post made me cry.

In a good way.

What Homework?

I've got pictures of Bombay Beach!

I've Got No Motivation.

So I just watch the work pile up around me.

Thesaurus Design.

All of it sits here and taunts me. And I? Surf the intarweb.

Deadlines loom out there in the near future and I just merrily ignore them. Really, it's a lot of work.

A lot.

And I just can't find the ambition to work on any of it.

I Have Pictures.

Many many pictures that are trapped in my camera.

The joys of the digital age - now instead of being trapped on film, they're trapped on a memory card.

But at least now I can scroll through them.

Someday I will upload them. For real.

Can It Really Be?

A new car??


Hooray for car payments!

Lt. Cmdr. Robert Randolph Elseth

"He really loved kids. He coached them even before he had his own daughter. He was the one guy who could outlast their energy. When we grew up neither one of us played soccer, but he got into it because he loved working with kids and the team needed a coach. He spent countless hours in the yard with his own daughter, and he was coach of his daughter's soccer team at the time of his death. Family was very important to my brother. He was a reservist, and the reason he went off active duty after 10 years was to spend more time with his family."

-Maj. Jim Elseth, brother

A man with a wife and a daughter.

A soccer coach and Sunday School teacher.

Junior Officer of the Year for Newport Naval Ashore Commands.

A Lt. Commander in the Naval Reserve.

A founding partner of Delta Resources, Inc. a defense consulting firm.

A man who was in the Naval Command Center five years ago.

One of the 2,996.

I remember.

Sometimes things make you happy.

Like when someone else has to do the crappy job of the day in the office.

Instead of writing Livejournal stories about gay vampires.

Labor Day 2006

This weekend I learned what a dying sea smells like at 6am.

Hot death.

I have never been anywhere more God-forsaken than Bombay Beach.

It was, however, a fascinating place. Like a dump where people live.

And build decks on top of their single-wide trailers.

Good times.
