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.

4-VIII-2006 or Dogs and Ponies and VP's, Oh, $h!t!

Heh. Today, the new VP of Agricultural Research or whatever is touring our facility, so ain't squat gonna get done. I had to spend most of the day yesterday cleaning up and making the lab basically look like no one does anything. Go »

4-XI-2008 or Historic Vote

Well, I just voted. I have to say this is the first time that I have been totally regretful as I walked out of the polling center. Even now, I have a pain in my stomach, and I'm wondering to myself, "Did I do the right thing?" Go »

16-IX-2009 or Behind The Scenes (GE)

For those who are not aware, my first character in Gothic Earth is retiring. I believe that Scott is going to keep him around to use for his own undoubtedly nefarious purposes, but essentially, I am done with him. There were many reasons behind it, but there was just a single overriding reason above all others: I found myself unwilling to continue with him. Go »

17-IV-2008 or Only To Me Can This Happen...

I have the worst funny story to tell, but I'm going to put in some filler first, so that you can't read the beginning from the main page, so if you want to read just that part, skip down a bit. I'll put in some funky asterisks (asteriski?) when the story starts. Go »

Test

Just seeing if I can get a picture of Malachi to show up here... If this works, this is Malachi's "Get that camera out of my %^&*ing face!" look! Go »

2-VIII-2007 or I Don't Have an Aunt Flo...

but I had issues! Unfortunately, last week went to Hades, thanks to an unscheduled visit from Uncle Intestinal Discomfort. I was pinned to my bathroom from Wednesday night into Saturday morning, with no internet access, so I was unable to even try to make a showing in the GOO finals. Go »
