11:19 am - Mars Express orbiter looks down at Spirit rover...

as Spirit looks up at the Mars Express.


Despite the loss of the Beagle2 lander, ESA's mission is still gathering and sending back lots of data.

12:28 pm - gridlore, you may or may not like this one.

Yeti/Penguin whack for distance

or as shockwave

First found by me in cadhla's LJ, but it appears in many other journals and is spreading.

04:23 pm - Arrrrrggggggg.....

Worst thing about working a musical?

The damned earworms, they get stuck and will not come out.

Right now I've got Maggie's final verse of "About a Quarter To Nine (Shuffle Off to Buffalo)" stuck on a short loop.

05:45 pm - Looking at the calendar...

Aside from being really full, I noticed today that I missed a anniversary last week and have another coming up at the end of this week.

1/14/2001 - Started at Kaiser

2 years of evolution and growth, but no major changes.

Except to accept the slower pace of corporate life. During my first year I would often have 1-on-1s with my supervisor and manager worried about how long tasks and projects were taking. Only to have them all but pat me on the head and say "there, there", as they told me over and over "you'll get used to it".

1/23/1984 - Joined the USAF

Wow, 20 years since I joined up.

Life changing in so many ways, but in others, it didn't seem to change me at all.

I know I would never have my current circle of friends and loved ones, if I had never had joined.
I would never have lived in Colorado or Australia, and probably would not have ended up in San Francisco.

Yet I know would still be a Science Fiction fan, going to cons every chance I got.
I'd still be doing computers.
I'd still be online.
