Work is going to kill me! I've been out in the sun too long. I need a quick break. How do I spend it? You're looking at it! :)

Well, I was out squatting for a while, counting insects on about 1000 tomato seedlings that are 2-4 inches tall. The back is screaming at me right now! Ow! Then, I had to pipet a product (we hate to say pesticide...like using a different word changes anything) onto plants 2.6 mL at a time. 400 plants. One by one. Repeat repeat repeat! I need a vacation. Oh, wait! I got one coming! Yay!!

The title is from a song I've had on my mind..if you can call it a song. "Wet My Bed" by Stone Temple Pilots. It's not the song of the day, though. Just on my mind.

I'm on the countdown. 14 days. I hate getting older. Yuck. Glad I'll be out of the country when it hits. I only have to worry about my wife reminding me. Until I get back... :(

It's starting to look a bit cloudy. If it rains, I won't be able to finish up my ladling. (Don't ask!) I should get going...

In a bit! :P

The song of the day will be "Black" by Pearl Jam. Just because.

I know someday you'll have a beautiful life
I know you'll be a star
In somebody else's sky
Why..why..why can't it be..can't it be mine?

If that doesn't touch your heart, you don't have one.

1) It was awesome. I told you all you should have come. And you should have. Go »

19-I-2007 or And now for something completely different

It's Friday, so it must be time for Aaron's pointless ramblings on subjects various and nefarious, topics wonderful and blunder-full, and generally funky and spunky. Yeah, that last one wasn't so good, but the first two weren't much with the funny either. :( Anyhow, it should be an uneventful weekend, so I'm looking forward to that. Go »

17-VII-2007 or To See Or Not To See...(SPOILERS?)

I have two revelations to make, one of which is truly momentous and possibly a sign of the Apocalypse, the other is just me being stupid, essentially. I'll deal with the stupid one first, just so that the second will be even more earth-shattering! And I know that most of you will be disappointed by the second revelation, after I've hyped it up so much, but trust me, to me if to no one else, this truly is an amazing turn of events. Go »
