a few more days of my brain

9:47 AM 2/19/2010
I have been awake for a bit, but there was the necessity of breakfast and all. Have powered through much of my inbox. Setting up filters to automatically label things of like categories that can be dealt with in quick succession, and then searching for label:X in:inbox, and turning on the keyboard commands, means that I can quickly skim a high-volume e-mail list, zip through the night's action from certain developers and see if there's anything from them that I need to address in my Suggestions, deal with all the BACN at once (for I have cunningly set up filters for all the BACN (such a tasty name for something so unappealing, but it's not spam) to be labeled the same thing), deal with all the notifications of my own comment replies, and then get down to what's left over. It works quite well.

Read some, then fell the hell over (pretty much while I was reading) for some cramp-laden sleep. Also, when waking up this morning, I kicked the wall. Not enough to damage either the wall or my foot (and it was the ball of my foot in any case; it's hit the ground harder) but I fear the neighbors may have been startled by the thump. Also, overnight, I dreamed about attempting to ascend into the atmosphere for the purpose of descending on a parachute, in a craft composed of a blacksmithed circular frame, and a sturdy fabricated-cardboard-and-other-things-but-mostly-cardboard shell, with four jets on the bottom. No window. Despite the lack of window, I was bringing a book in mine, to curl up around. (The book I'd not quite finished reading last night.) (In case there was light. So I could read.) It was in my parents' front yard, the "front" facing the garden access. It did not get far off the ground before it malfunctioned (on the order of maybe three, four feet) and let me pretty smoothly back down.

I caught up on the last of my LJ friends page last night, but have not read my DW reading page for a few days. Catching up on that now.

1:35 PM 2/19/2010
Oh dear. It seems there are some scary things on it.

2:12 PM 2/19/2010
Look, you. Your argument holds no technical water; you are picking a fight with the wrong people to be angered with.

2:41 PM 2/19/2010
I have a ham. It wants baking.

2:47 PM 2/19/2010
I always think that social charges me up, but the problem is, I then have to *discharge* to get back to myself, and that takes quite a while, and then I have to sleep, and that takes longer. So yes, I think I really am an introvert.

2:56 PM 2/19/2010
Yes, it's time to clean out tabs and contemplate rebooting. Alas.

3:21 PM 2/19/2010
(Started an essay on meanness from shower thoughts)

pne has a poll: http://pne.dreamwidth.org/855084.html

Walkies upcoming, then shopping, then a movie-and-crafts night with my aunt.

10:28 PM 2/19/2010
Back from hanging out with aunt. Went for walk. Went to Trader Joe's. Had supper (pot roast, rice, salad, tea). Worked on design for afghan. Not sure I can make the four-stripe-square, eight squares per side, plan work -- aside from the infelicity of the numbers if one is atevi, there's what I think will be too much mirroring in the pattern.

Nora has helpfully shared "Not in Your Butt" with [community profile] beginningcocks: http://beginningcocks.dreamwidth.org/10108.html (my favorite is the vaseline, which was on the WRONG SIDE OF THE JAR TO DO MUCH GOOD, YO).

Should suggest a baseball bat or 2x4 labeled "Attitude Readjustment Tool" for a vgift. ;) Should also stress that this one should be not given to volunteers to do with as they please (at least not in unlimited quantities).

8:02 AM 2/20/2010
It has been wakey-wakey time for a bit. Oh, how I loathe the female biology, and in light of last night's "fun", I see why I was so attached to last evening's pot roast.

8:17 AM 2/20/2010
Did some updating of http://wiki.livejournal.org/index.php/IRC_tools for common commands needed by new denizens of #lj_s and its environs. (LJ people, if you see anything obvious that's missing, feel free to add it if you have access, or poke me if you don't. Needed: more clients, with commentary/recommendations/cautions.) (Not-LJ-people, feel totally free to skip this bit.)

oh god, someone was in search of a classic X-Files fic ...
... and I recognized it. (I don't remember the name, but it was on Gossamer. Enter the malfunctioning soulbond.)

Crossposted. comment count unavailable comments.
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
