Sometimes... I think about contacting complete strangers via instant messenger in the exact method and style of porn spam bots. Copy and pasting their dialog, and then passing it on, refusing to respond to people.

I was never really meant to pass a turing test, so it really seems like a waste to even try.

A little bit of this years thanksgiving. I will never ever ever eat cranberry sauce out of a can again. It's cheap, easy, and about a million times more delicious. I spent the early afternoon at my dad's house, my grandparents were there, my aunt Karen, and even my sister showed up. My step brother was there, and even brought his daughter. I showed off some origami to her and made her a tiny rose.

I was honestly surprised that I remembered so precisely how to make the rose.. it's been a long long time since I made one. But it was really cool and I plan on making more in the future. My step brother brought 2 of the coveted butterscotch pies.. there was much joy. After dinner at dad's house I went home and finished cooking dinner for my mom, and zac, and my sister came over to join us. Kayla was out with her family.

It was really messed up, though, later that night we found out that Zac's parents escaped their home burning down. Even if insurance pays everything that it was all worth, which is unlikely, it will never replace the photos and memories.

After that, though, my sister got both Zac and I invites to play in the weekend long Star Wars The Old Republic beta.. which we did all weekend when not busy with family.

I spent a lot of time at dad's house later working more on my boat. So much work, but it is really shaping up to be very beautiful.

This morning I went to pick up my new guitar. My new beautiful baby. So pretty, and she sounds like a dream. She is the first new guitar I picked out for all the features I wanted, and Scott bought her for me. One of the most generous gifts ever, and it really felt good after the crappy months and debts I had over my broken arm. That and a small computer upgrade are two of the things that those debts stopped me from being able to do.

Anyway, the replacement after the dud I had last time arrived at Guitar Center... last wednesday. I would have known that if I'd bothered to call or something instead of just assuming monday. I could have had her and shown her off to all my family. Oh, well. C'est la vi. After I picked her up, I swung by Larry's Hobbies on the way home because I was inspired by all the model building with my dad this weekend. They have a sci fi section that is filled with star trek, star wars, doctor who, and all sorts of other cool models. I should maybe have taken more pictures, but these seemed like enough. The ceiling is covered with complete models. THey've been around since as long as I can remember and I remember going there with my parents as a kid after church to look at the model trains.

Their model train is plagued by Godzilla, btw.

Now, this cool little treat is a character I had thought was completely forgotten.. but is painted on the wall of the taco bell between guitar center and home. This is actually from the trip to turn in my damaged guitar to get the new one, but I didn't think it was worth posting by itself at the time. It was just super cool to be surprised while I was eating with a hand painted picture like this from some random local artist.

It's been a mixed holiday, in some ways very very blessed, and really sad in a few others. Thanks and prayer, prayer and thanks. Maybe I'll talk about it later, but for now, I just wanted to share something extremely beautiful.

I'm Probably Gonna Go Food Nuts Tonight

You know, at first I was thinking I was just going to fry some nice spicy potatoes tonight.

Now, though... I'm thinking that I'm going to dice them and fry them together with some italian sausage, onions, maybe a few other things. Sort of like my peppers and sausage dish, but with potatoe cubes for a starch blended it, maybe add in a little extra cayenne for a kick. That's definitely what I feel like cooking tonight.

But if I add the potatoes in, instead of cooking them on the side.. what do I cook on the side?

The Only Place I Long to Be

I haven't posted in quite along time... guess I've been letting my arm make me lazy, or guess I've been using my arm as an excuse to be lazy. I hope it's the former, because I'd like to think that now that it's feeling much better I can be a lot more productive again. I like being able to do all the wonderful things I can do with my arms and hands ;-) It's been a very very sad two months not being able to indulge and explore.. as much.

Since I haven't been able to give them as much as I'd like, to begin my return, I begin with flowers for you:

Last weekend was really tiring, but pretty amazing. I can't wait to post some pictures from it, Sean took most of them, so I will share his. By far the most exciting part? Meeting the astronaut Dr. Stanley G. Love. I was incredibly unprepared, and sadly I was unable to visit his panel. When they said the astronaut was coming down the isle to shake hands and answer questions at the con promo tables, I really had no idea what to expect. Maybe someone in an astronaut costume, maybe someone nicknamed the astronaut.. when a real life actual American hero walked up and shook my hand I was blown away. I even shoot his hand with my broken arm and it hurt like hell, but so worth it.

The second really great highlight was dancing my little heart out to Bohemian Rhapsody when the Earthbound Papas performed it during their concert. It was completely out of left field for me and it was both amazing, well performed, and a little funny. I went back and forth from waving my hands and pumping my fists and jumping wildly to laughing occasionally at the surprise of it all.

Time for lunch, now.
