10 facts about me.

1. I have seen every single episode of Doctor Who since they brought it back.

 

2. I have a compulsive need to buy notebooks. Even if they're crap.

 

3. I've been to seven different schools.

 

4. I have a talent for wrapping gifts, and get annoyed when people just rip open presents, ruining the time and effort I took getting the bow perfectly central.

 

5. I wish I could write songs. Whenever I try, it sounds like a deaf child with no…

Day 209: Space

So, here we are. Another Saturday has come, another week has past (almost). Another time. Another place. Somewhere far. Out in space.


That was a tad random. But, really, have you come to suspect anything else? Oh, you have? Huh. Interesting. Wait, I'm talking to myself here? Oh. So, I'm the one who's expecting something different. That's just strange. I should know me better.

If there was any doubt, I am a nerd.

My neighbor has a new puppy. His name is Messier. I thought he must have been named after the famouse 18th century astronomer. I figured that my neighbor must be more of a nerd than I thought. Apparently the puppy was named after a hockey player. Goggle tells me a good one. So 1) I am clueless about sports, and 2) I am a nerd. As if there was any doubt.

no one self-actualizes in a bar.

i'm currently listening to "third eye" by tool, which is a long enough song that i might finish this post before it's over. the opening of the song includes some spoken word by bill hicks. there are bits of his comedy routines on youtube, and i recommend taking a look. according to the FAQ on his site, he lived within a few blocks of where i currently do, when he was on this earth.



the question that inspired this blog entry is "what bars did he hang out in?" rather than leaving it to… Continue
