A Picture Is Worth...


Look, I can't be the hyper, glittery, optimist all of the time. I don't want you guys to get the wrong idea and think I am on Prozac or something.

Been real busy. Smooches y'all.

Gasp! It Happens Next Month!

Imagine a future that is all about hedonism. You can get some from who ever and not think about diseases or death. And in the future everyone is hot!!! Oh yeah! But, there is only one small catch, you are terminated (nicely called being "renewed") at the age of thirty. Logan's Run received a Special Achievement Academy Award for Visual Effects. It was the first movie to use laser holography--yes it was made in the 70s.

Why am I talking about Logan's Run and the future?-- On March 7 I turn thirty-three. Basically, if this was Logan's future, I would have been renewed three years ago. Ten years ago, I dreaded the thought of turning twenty-five.

Now, I can honestly say, thirtysomething nice to be here.

Being in your thirties is great!!! I can't stress this enough--you're still hot; minus the angst of your teens and the stupidity of your twenties. Oh and you start to figure it all out, whatever that mysterious it is.

As a woman, I am starting to find my own voice. No kids and not married--I love it. At one point I thought I actually needed these two things to validate me as a person--no let me rephrase that... Society says that validates us if not that some other trend, botox, pilates, in vitro, whatever...

What validates me now? I ask myself if I am doing what the Creator has put me on the planet for? And that is what I am working on.

Oh and that figure it out thang? Don't try to figure it out too hard. Once you got it, it is time to be renewed ;-)

I'm a Golden Goddess...Duh!

Take the quiz kids. Its pretty good.

http://hokev.brinkster.net/quiz/default.asp?quiz=Better+Personality&page=1

You are a WRCL--Wacky Rational Constructive Leader. This makes you a Golden God(dess).

You think fast and have a smart mouth, and you are a hoot to your friends and razorwire to your enemies. You hold a grudge like a brass ring. You crackle.

Although you have a leader's personality, you often choose not to lead, as leaders stray too far from their audience. You probably weren't very popular in high school--the joke's on them!

You may be a rock star.

Of the 88932 people who have taken this quiz since tracking began (8/17/2004), 7 % are this type.
Wackiness: 96/100
Rationality: 62/100
Constructiveness: 100/100
Leadership: 70/100

Mathematical Crochet Chaos!

Dr Hinke Osinga and Professor Bernd Krauskopf, of Bristol University's engineering mathematics department, have made a crochet model of chaos - and are challenging anyone else to repeat the effort.



They used 25,511 crochet stitches to represent the Lorenz equations.

To quote Keanu Reeves in The Matrix, Bram Stoker's Dracula, Speed, Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure (1 &2 ), but not as Siddartha in Little Buddha, "Whoa".

You'll get a bottle of champagne if you can do it yourself.

Tuesday is Choose Day--But Before I Get Into That...

Y'all gonna make me loose my mind, up in here, up in here!

Help! Is Mercury (the planet of communication) in frigging retrograde? Dumb stuff. Yeah my lap top - the left click mouse thingy---dead, gone kaput. The numbers "6" and "9" on my phone--dead, gone kaput. I would make a Freudianesque joke about this...

Sorry for the "memes only" guys. I've been getting a little busy (stooooooooop-you know who you are).

A special shout out to AFDC for the useful photography tips for the digicam deficient.
