Like Clockwork

I took some vaca­tion days off of work to turn this week­end into a 5-day vaca­tion (Friday through Tuesday). The plan was to go camp­ing at the coast. We made our reser­va­tion months ago[1]. We made some last minute acqui­si­tions ear­lier in the week (we were lack­ing in the lantern and water jug depart­ment). I got myself … Continue read­ing Like Clockwork

Apologies: in retrospect and in advance

First off, I have to apol­o­gize in both ret­ro­spect and advance if I have been snippy, stressed, or overly emo­tional.

Can’t eat, clowns will sleep me.

Three lit­tle pill bot­tles, lined up like sol­diers. One is used to treat anthrax. Two cause nau­sea. One treats nau­sea. Three cause drowsi­ness. Two go with food. One goes with lots and lots of water. All three cause drowsi­ness. One is not to be com­bined with expo­sure to sun­light. One is not to be com­bined … Continue read­ing Can’t eat, clowns will sleep me.

Reactor

Everybody knows that songs can trig­ger emo­tional reac­tions. Do you have any songs that trig­ger a phys­i­cal reac­tion? I do. I really like the song “My Blue Heaven.” A cover of that song wasn’t the sole rea­son for pick­ing up a Smashing Pumpkins boxed set (the one with the lit­tle lunch­box han­dle) back in the day, but was a con­tribut­ing fac­tor. … Continue read­ing Reactor
