Don't scratch and claw... [Dec. 22nd, 2011|08:48 pm]

Call Cat's Paw. Cat's Paw Electrical Services.

I worked for them in undergrad. We were the Seal Team Six of electricians.

Badasses.

On more than a few occasions we completely rewired houses and businesses. Sometimes even "covertly."

The time is flying by. My old boss us retired now, and his little girl, born while I worked for him, will be starting high school next year.

I wouldn't be where I am we're it not for Felis Maximus. I hope I'm in a position to help his daughter when it comes time for college.

Space drive..... [Dec. 16th, 2011|08:00 am]

Had a bizarre dream last night. I dreamed that action doesn't quite equal reaction. They were the same out to several decimal places, but if you went far enough, they didn't quite match. Further. The difference changed when the axis of the action reaction pair changed. I think it had something to do with either QM effects, or curvature of spacetime. Long story short was that with enough mass and a high enough cycle rate over a sufficiently long path, you got a reaction less space drive which is not quite the holy grail of space flight. (FTL is). But I'd take it.

It has been three months since I blogged last. [Nov. 27th, 2011|08:49 am]

I have probably lost a chunk of my "audience" unless they also follow my Facebook posts (which I have continued to make). I should probably go and backdate some entries based on my FB posts.

So what's up with me? I got married, for one thing. November 11, 2011, Veterans Day to an Air Force Veteran. Things really came together. One of my law school classmates got her bankruptcy finalized the day before the ceremony. Another got her Social Security Disability case resolved and the first benefits check (containing a sizable retroactive payment) arrived the week before, so we had money enough to replace the appliances she sold at a yard sale for 50 bucks as well as pay the various wedding expenses without worrying. And I married her, so Mississippi College School of Law Class of 2008 was pretty good to her. :)

I got a promotion at work to GS12. That's not quite a ten thousand dollar a year raise, but it's close. It means no more prioritizing, robbing peter to pay paul, or other financial tricks where I metaphorically keep three or four balls up in the air using only two hands.

Dana is a very special girl. She's a lot like me in many ways, and can be quite weird in a good way. She not only tolerates some of my crazy schemes, but actively participates and is enthusiastic.

She can't wait for me to get the Cheshire Cat fixed up.

Sorry I haven't updated lately.

Executive summary: working very hard at work, crazy hours. I clocked 53 hours of overtime last month. We made our goal, though, through heroic efforts.

Maverick had to have emergency gall bladder surgery (this is on top of what I think was pelvic adhesive disease last summer culminating in a hysterectomy and of course systemic lupus. The decision was made by someone that she should convalesce with my idiot brother in law Boomhaur at Mom's house.

Fine. So I moved back into my house a couple of weeks ago. I needed to anyway so I could keep my tax credit.

The plan was for us to basicly swap spaces, since they are planning on buying a house now that I have helped them refinance her house in Hattiesburg to lower the mortgage down to something reasonable. But Boomhaur was whining about my bed in Mom's guest room. He just HAD to have his bed. Fine. So the plan was for him to come get it and Mav would get a few things.

It turned into MOVING.

WHAT.THE.FUCK.

It turned into drama. Have I said lately how much I HATE moving? I'm very good at it, mind you. But damn.

Taking the day off work. I'm fighting City Hall, who thinks they can make one of MY FRIENDS get rid of her house trailer because it's ten years old. More on this later.

But they needed to find a picture of Rainbow Dash that is at least 20 percent cooler than this one.

Which My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic pony are you?



Rainbow Dash
Bold and brave, you take on anything life throws at you head-on! Everyone knows you're a wild mare; always on the edge and living for adventure. You're also a bit of a show-off- but there's no harm in being confident with yourself! In fact, some people admire your assertiveness: you can stand up for yourself, and if anyone dares challenge you, you'll reply with a big "bring it on!" Your friends can always count on you to swoop in and save them when someone's giving them a hard time, and that makes you one awesome bud indeed.

I am back in my home. [Jul. 17th, 2011|10:22 pm]
Loxley
Baby sister had gall bladder surgery and is recuperating in Mom's guest room... don't ask me why she can't recuperate at my townhome that I've been letting her stay in. Whatever. So she and my brother in law are in Mom's guestroom now, and i've packed a bag of things (including liquor) and am now back in my townhome. It's full of my baby sister's CRAP.

At least it's set up differently so it doesn't remind me so much of when Heather was here. That was a motivating factor for letting Maverick borrow it anyway... too many memories here.

Anyway, I'm about half lit, been watching the series premiere of "Breaking Bad" on my big-ass television, and finished off my kahlua bottle and most of the vodka bottle.

I spent ALL DAY today playing taxi for a friend whose car got repo'd. I'm trying to help them get their life back together. Mental illness is a helluva thing. When the calculus is whether to choose to engage in a personal hobby or spending time helping someone, how can one make any choice other than the latter?

I look forward to boxing Mav's shit up and throwing crap away.

I also look forward to getting back to work on the Barn Queen... it's going to be my shelter of last resort.

That was an epic roller derby bout. [Jul. 9th, 2011|11:17 pm]
Loxley
It was the last jam of the bout. The Magnolia Roller Vixens had just been down by about 15 at the start of the previous jam, but Rowdy Reeta Ricochet zoomed through the Prizkilla Presleys for a five point gain, calling the jam before the other jammer could wide the lead.

So with the last jam of the bout, the Vixens blockers managed to box in the Presley's jammer, holding her to three points, while Nitro Glisten was able to score grand slam after grand slam. I kept watching and waiting for the Presley's jammer ref to signal how many points she'd scored, but he usually only does so once the jammer has cleared the pack... and the Presley's jammer apparently hadn't gotten out of her first scoring pass.

I don't know if the time ran out or if Nitro called off the jam, or what. But it was PANDELERIUM in the convention center. When the jam was over, I ran into the infield and talked to my jammer ref, Pantichrist (I was keeping score for the Presleys the second half of the bout).

Me: "Did she only score 3 points the whole jam?"

Pantichrist: "Yeah. She was never able to make it out of her first scoring pass."

The crowd (to me) seemed to get quiet, as I ran back across the track to my station, and tallied up the Presley final score. "99" I told Bee TeeZee, our scoreboard operator. The Vixens score had already been updated to 103, so everyone was waiting for the updated score for the Presleys to find out whether the Vixens had managed to come from so far behind and win a fifth consecutive game.

The place went nuts.

EPIC!

38:24. About a minute slower than the personal best I set yesterday, but I think my recovery is improving for sure, and my endurance is improving at least a little, so I should be able to set a new personal best time next Sunday I think.
