mdlbear: the positively imaginary half of a cubic mandelbrot set (Default)

Not too bad, but I really didn't get anything done except for what I'd consider puttering. Even at work, where I did a good number of little things while not getting much done on the big ones. Story of my life?

And even though it was perfect weather for walking in, I didn't: I got busy with something and the next time I looked up it was 1:30.

I made dinner, too, since the YD was apparently indisposed. Also, as usual, laundry, replacing the failing CFL bulb in the laundry room, and assorted other little things.

I went splat about an hour early; Colleen had gone to bed ahead of me while I was in the tub, which is also unusual. I don't think either of us was feeling up to par; I know I wasn't.

Also when I got home, I found 174 tweets in my twitter feed. If you're out there expecting me to keep up, don't. Send me an email. Same goes for G+ -- the larger post limit means that even with only two dozen people in my circles, I can't possibly keep up. I read about two pages worth of each in a typical day; the rest falls off the bottom and never gets seen.

Going meta for a moment, I've been wondering why we don't get nearly as many people at Wednesday nights and parties as we used to. (I know that I haven't been terribly good at party announcements, so that may be part of it.) So if you've been staying away from the Starport for some reason, could you let me know? Send email to my user name at livejournal.com if you don't want to post it. Or should I put this in a separate post and screen comments?

The most appalling link of the day is Topeka, Kansas City Council Considers Decriminalizing Domestic Violence To Save Money. See, the county has stopped prosecuiting misdemeanors, so Topeka gets handed the domestic violence cases under a city ordinance. This, people, is what the teabaggers mean by "cutting government spending".

  * buy:  ABC:  paper (1pkg) and cloth (2)  bed pads 
  & no walk -- worked past 12:30 without noticing
  & on arrival home:  laundry (right shift and load), replace light in laundry
  & ... and made dinner:  (locally-made) hot dogs and ravioli
  @ SiliconShaman - Ok Confession Time.  America needs a revolution.
  : 174 tweets since morning.  No, I do *not* intend to keep up.  Ever.
  % wondering whether the reason people aren't coming to Wednesdays and
    parties is the smell.  Or the UBF, etc.  Or something about either C. or
    me.  Whatever the reason, I wish people would talk to me.

  * 8:29 more laundry (another right shift)  
    | Very tired.  Wilted?  Out of it.
    | dehydration may be part of it.  OTOH, who knows?
    | eyes may also be part of it.  Really need to get that taken care of.
  * bath 10:15; bed 11ish.  diphenhydramine and an extra nose-watering

And while I'm sure they'd be offended at my tactlessness for mentioning it openly, the Teabaggers are probably fine with decriminalizing domestic violence.

Of course. Goes along with criminalizing abortion.

Came here to find out when the Halloween party was happening and I see nothing.
Will it be the usually Oct 29th? Usual Bat Time and Channel?

Yes. Need to post about that, don't I?
