Having finally finished Quicksilver, let me just talk books for a bit, but not before noting that today was REALLY REALLY hot, and sucked a lot, in the following fashion: [18:15] Dwip: So we’re all kicking it at work, and Satan walks in, right? [18:15] Dwip: And he’s like “Crap, dude. It’s HOT in here. I’m going back to Hell, where it’s cool.” [18:16] Dwip: And since Hell is, you know, ON FIRE, you can imagine how work was. [18:16] Maelfactor: Neat! [18:19] Dwip: Because I guess it’s upwards of 104, and work is a big metal building. [18:19] Dwip: With no insulation or anything. [18:19] Dwip: And no air flow. Also, this picture, thanks to Suzanne, who’s graduation party […]

Hard At Work

Because I totally have nothing better to do at work than think these things up. Seriously. And now, a short play for your entertainment, inspired by the awesome Neal Stephenson book Quicksilver, which I suggest you read, because it’s clever. Very clever. Scene I Cabinet doors shop, afternoon. Loud machinery sounds in the background. KAREN enters from around the Sandmaster. Karen: Rails’re sanded, panels done. Building time draws nigh. Quick, I must away, ‘fore the gluing time approaches, and here come Pam and Erik. Exit KAREN; Enter PAM and Erik, pushing a cart of panels. Pam: But where did Karen go? Erik: Well, it was like this, see… Scene II Cabinet doors shop, afternoon. Oddly quiet. KAREN and ERIK are […]

So I guess something like four people, six if you count the ones I haven’t talked to in five years, are either graduating today, graduated not so long ago, or are close to doing so. Way to go, y’all. …now get a job. :P

Because you’ve gotta have something to do while sleep-deprived on a 12 hour shift at work, at thinking this up was as good as anything. With profuse apologies to Sam Cooke, but not to the hundreds of bots who died to bring you this: Well don’t you know That’s the sound of the men shooting with the chain gu-u-un That’s the sound of the men shooting with the chain gun All day long they’re shootin’ braaaaaap braaaaaap braaaaaap braaaaaap Well don’t you know That’s the sound of the men shooting with the chain gu-u-un That’s the sound of the men shooting with the chain gun All day long, they shoot so much ’till their Cobra’s goin’ down Shooting up the […]

No, not dead, just not with the time/energy to blog much. Been doing lots, though, which we’ll just go ahead and talk about. I’ve seen a whole bunch of movies lately. MI:3 was, well, not bad, which was surprising, given how badly MI:2 sucked the good suck. A reasonable plot as these things go, good twists and turns, fights, and what have you. OTOH, Tom Cruise is starting to creep me out, for what should be the obvious non-movie reasons. The Da Vinci Code was actually surprisingly good, though again it’s not like I had high expectations for it, considering how much I’m not a conspiracy theory fan. I turned my brain off and went with it, which worked out, […]
