This is to serve as notice that our PERSONAL CLEANING ROBOT will arrive Monday, March 17th, 2008 CE.

This pleases me.

I'm currently at the Democratic caucus for our part of Capitol Hill. The turnout is pretty insane. So many people showed up that the location was unable to accommodate them, and three precincts had to go across the street. We ran into djeternaldarkne and a few other people, and for a while the choir section of the church we're in was taken over by goths till they broke us up by precincts. Right now we're waiting for the votes to be tallied. Democracy involves a lot of waiting.

My old Harley boots. I have a new pair so they're just taking up space. Are you in the Seattle area? Do you want them? If so, let me know.

Note: cat not included.







Oh yeah! As [livejournal.com profile] apostle rightly notes, size information helps. They're size 11 1/2.

Apparently there's a Palm LJ client. If you see this, it means it works.

Taken from my balcony just before sunsent. I'm no photographer, so please forgive the photography, but... the sky was fricking pink.

beware, large images ahead )

Today is mine and [livejournal.com profile] chemicallace's fourth anniversary, and we will be going out for drinks to celebrate. Ours is the longest relationship I have ever had, and I am very happy to have her in my life.

As if I were not already pleased by that, it is also the 50th anniversary of the first human-made object was placed in orbit. I find it terribly appropriate that we, who love space exploration so much, got together on the day Sputnik was launched.

i was shucking some corn to have for dinner and there was this HUGE CATERPILLAR that had eaten its way into one of the ears of corn and had carved itself this caterpillar-shaped channel.

I thought it was dead.

Then... in the heat... I'd just taken it out of the fridge... it started WAKING UP.

THERE ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO BE LIFE FORMS IN MY CORN

This is why $deity gave us pesticides and genetic engineering!

I just tested my work email address because I haven't gotten any work email in three hours, and I was afraid the server had gone down.

Need I really say more?

I am pleased with myself. We had leeks and half an onion, and I managed to put together a rather tasty sauce/topping for some steak out of it by sauteeing the leek and onion in olive oil with salt, pepper, dijon mustard and some really awful rose` wine we had originally gotten to make sorbet out of. It turned out quite well.

Last weekend was very exciting -- I was able to bring Allyson with me to the Mercury for the first time. Before we went, though, we spent a couple of hours at the Chapel Bar on Pine, and while the company was good the service was terrible. The bar was closing to the public early because it had rented out for a private party by some of the PAX people (I gather they were EVE Online / World Of Darkness MMORPG people), and I think we were happy to be out of there.

We had a wonderful time at the Merc, though. Thank you very much to all who came and hung out with us and wished Allyson a happy birthday; I know she had a good time and so did I.

Last night, I turned in my thesis for my master's degree.

This morning, I was told that an article I wrote is getting published on theserverside.com, a well-known enterprise Java news site.

Tomorrow, we depart for our vacation in England and Egypt.

Allyson is finally turning 21, and we are celebrating on Saturday, August 25th. We'll be starting the evening off at the Chapel Bar on Pike Street from 5 to 9 PM, and then migrating up to the Mercury for the rest of the evening.

We're working on securing the balcony level of Chapel for our private use; if we manage it, I'll post about it again here.

It would be very helpful if you can let me know if you'll be coming, so that we'll know whether we have enough people to secure the balcony floor. Hope to see you there!

Some people find loose change down the back of their couches. I find purple latex gloves and old copies of Chemical and Engineering News.

The Seattle Times is running a new ad campaign for its classifieds section.

This ad campaign features...

Wait for it...

LOLCATS.

Not even kidding. )

We are planning. And plotting. And, unfortunately, cleaning. Or... about to clean. Maybe. We'll see.

I have been looking for this icon forever! I finally found a copy of the blank image and re-made it. Yay.

I'm killing time at Logan. I had to go to the airport early anyway as Allyson's flight left an hour before mine, but both our flights were delayed. Ostensibly I'll be getting back to Seattle a little after 10 PM at this point. Whee.

Posting from SeaTac Airport via my Treo. I'll be in Boston till Tuesday night, attending two graduations and a wedding, and meeting most of Allyson's extended family for the first time. It should be fun.
