Today at work...

Me: Okay, you have to choose.
Geoff: I choose "chicken leg," because it seems like I could do a lot more with a chicken scratch about and grab stuff, whereas a pig's leg...
Me: Okay, but, I didn't mean a chicken's leg, I meant, you actually have a chicken for a leg or a pig for a leg.
Geoff: Now, what?
Me: Like, your leg is actually a, I guess I meant your foot.
Geoff: Oh. Pig then.

I saw an abnormal semi last night and it brought to mind a very serious question. If you shout "perididdle" when you see a car with one headlight, what do you shout when you see a diesel with only one?

Weighty matters on the mind...

Every time I think of you
I feel shot right through with a bolt of blue
It's no problem of mine
But it's a problem I find
Living a life that I can't leave behind
But there's no sense in telling me
The wisdom of the fool won't set you free
But that's the way that it goes
And it's what nobody knows
well every day my confusion grows

Every time I see you falling
I get down on my knees and pray
I'm waiting for that final moment
You say the words that I can't say

I feel fine and I feel good
I'm feeling like I never should
Whenever I get this way
I just don't know what to say
Why can't we be ourselves like we were yesterday
I'm not sure what this could mean
I don't think you're what you seem
I do admit to myself
That if I hurt someone else
Then I'll never see just what we're meant to be


Bizarre Love Triangle by NEW ORDER

Okay, okay, so I'm on a severe 80s kick. (But when am I not?). But this song is just very, very cool. I dont' know quite know how to describe my recent severe attachment it.

Also, there's nothing to do at work, so I'm learning how to do THIS.

Also, also, in my process of scouring the Internet, I found THIS, which is pretty cool, but not as cool as THIS!

Looking at pictures of people SCUBA diving in Hawaii all day long, my desires to be a National Geographic Oceanographer have been rekindled. Too bad live in a land-locked mountainous state and don't know how to take photographs, or how to SCUBA dive. It's also unfortunate that I get crispy after 15 minutes of exposure to UV rays.

Maybe in my next life...

DEPECHE MODE lyrics - "But Not Tonight"

Oh God it's raining
But I'm not complaining
It's filling me up with new life
The stars in the sky
Bring tears to my eyes
They're lighting my way tonight

And I haven't felt so alive
In years

Just for a day
On a day like today
I'll get away from this constant debauchery
The wind in my hair
Makes me so aware
How good it is to live tonight

And I haven't felt so alive
In years

The moon
Is shining in the sky
Reminding me
Of so many other nights
But they're not like tonight

. . .

And I haven't felt so alive
In years

The moon
Is shining in the sky
Reminding me
Of so many other nights
When my eyes had been so red
I'd been mistaken for dead
But not tonight

I discovered this song at work and really like it.
That's all.
The End.

Okay, so, I finally figured out how to post pictures here. (Sorta)

On the left is the alleged 18 foot tall snowman that Candice, Matt, Jon, Patrick, my Dad, and I built over the Christmas break. (The photo is slightly anamorphic, sorry)

On the right is young Patrick about to catch some air on the SNO-RAY. (yes, my dad built it!)

Enjoy. :)
