that the four year old had an accident. I began to suspect it would be a bad evening.

Then I found the cat vomit, it was a bad evening.

Plus, the Goat pains me, nuclear war positing, busy weekend and more!

Poll: Favorite painkiller?



I'm getting sick of being on call, I only have to hold out until Monday, I hope.

I had a tough call last night, the kind that might make me fly somewhere, and then four year old had an accident because she's not great about being in touch with her bladder. Mrs. Ha was working, so I had to deal with the bath, mopping up pee, picking up drenched clothing and all while still talking on the phone. Gah.

Then there was cat vomit, Mrs. Ha getting home late, the kids getting in bed late, three ales to show my support of the Brits and leftover pesto and tortellini before staggering off to bed, leaving the dishes to Mrs. Ha. Meh.

I have found my bike to be less painful to ride than driving the Goat, my knee does not like having to flex to do the clutch. Wednesday we go to discuss my Xrays and bloodwork and see what can be done before I turn into an invalid. Joy. I doubt I'll get anything to help with the pain either, my doctor is great, but she's really reluctant to pass out the narcotics.

One of the finds at the ABVI was the Silent War, an entertaining read by a Navy Chief Scientist going into the undersea Cold War, including the investigation of K129, a Russian nuclear missile carrying sub that sunk near Hawiai. He hedges around quite a bit since so much of Project Jennifer is still classified, but he likes to hin that the sub was a rogue, and was mortally damaged when it launched a missile towards Hawiai without proper authorization. He posits the missile blew up on launch, as part of it's fail safe. It's certainly interesting, and chilling. Blind Man's Bluff is probably better, I should track that down from the library.

We're planning on going to the local amusement park Sunday, and nearly nine year old is taking a friend to help celebrate her upcoming birthday. I hope it's not raining.

Then again, I will still have the phone. I suppose I can enjoy the water rides, provided I check the phone every hour or so. And I can ogle all the chicks in their swimsuits.

Amusement parks in the rain by MohammedNiyalSayeed (2.00 / 0) #5 Fri Jul 08, 2005 at 08:22:27 AM EST

I love going when it rains. The lines are so much shorter. And the annoying "other people", so much fewer.

The safety nazis would probably shut down the ride by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #6 Fri Jul 08, 2005 at 08:24:14 AM EST
s, even the water rides. I'll be stuck under a tin roofed shelter with cranky bouncy eight year olds.

Do they like lame amusement park pizza? by MohammedNiyalSayeed (2.00 / 0) #7 Fri Jul 08, 2005 at 08:27:59 AM EST

The pizza joints never close, as they're all indoors. Like Chuck E. Cheese, only thinner crust, and fewer ball-pits. And less Skee-Ball.

Litany of Fear by Improbus (2.00 / 0) #8 Fri Jul 08, 2005 at 08:40:14 AM EST
Is this the Litany of Fear?

The Bene Gesserit Litany against Fear.
Pg 19 of Dune

I must not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

Shotgun. No brain, no pain.

Life is pain, but there are some things that are worse than death.
